Description: Spanning 180 years -- from Washington to Nixon -- A Treasury of White House Cooking is a truly unique and authentic cookbook which presents a collection of more than 100 menus and more than 500 recipes that enable the home cook to duplicate the dishes served in the White House on formal state occasions and at intimate meals shared by the Presidents, their families, and their friends. 

The range is impressively broad -- from simple (but unusual) breakfast and luncheon dishes to elegant haute cuisine dinners of many courses that were served to visiting heads of state and foreign dignitaries. Recipes for the favorite foods of almost every President and his First Lady appear in these pages -- recipes for soups, breads, fish and meat dishes, vegetables, salads, cakes and pies, and luscious desserts of infinite variety. All these recipes are meticulously indexed so that they can be referred to at a glance and prepared with ease. In addition, there is an array of interesting and illuminating anecdotes about the culinary preferences and "adventures in eating" of the White House occupants that are delightfully entertaining. 

Whether you are planning a dinner for a dozen guests or want to prepare an informal meal for your family, you will find inspiration and guidance in this superlative collection of recipes and menus from the nation's number 1 kitchen. Second only to an invitation to dinner at the White House, this remarkable cookbook is an enticement to serve a parade of superb White House dishes right in your own home.
