White House food

obama-lunch

(Cheese and Crackers with Carrots and Pear Slices)

“Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” French gastronomist Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said in 1825. Many people believed that the best measure of a person’s taste is the food he or she eats. That is true. Kids like to eat hamburger and pizza; office ladies love low calorie healthy food; Chinese people like eating rice and Mexican like burritos. Then what our president Barack obama eat? Do you curies about the White House meal?

An official White House Flickr photo stream was released in 2009. These foods shown in picture are not only served for President Barack Obama but also the White House Staff. www.Visualrecipes.com have picked out some of the more interesting photos to share with everyone. Let’s check out!

obama-biden-lunch

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have lunch.I can’t make out what the fried food is, but I assume it’s Mexican as well.  Condiments appear to be mayo and ketchup in little dishes. Any ideas as to what the fried food could be? Please leave a comment.

Salmon, Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream and Strawberries, and Something that Looks like Bread Sticks

obama-pelosi-patricks-day

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Obama have a St. Patrick’s Day lunch. The dish in front of Obama appears to be salmon. I can’t figure out what the waiter is offering Obama though. Whatever it is, Obama seems to be passing up the offer. Could it be a batch of cheese breadsticks? If you have any idea please post a comment.

Box of Chocolate-Covered Macadamia Nuts

President Barack Obama reads a newspaper in the Outer Oval Office. On the desk in front of the flowers is a box of Hawaiian Host Chocolate Macadamias direct from his home state of Hawaii.

Canadian Beavertail Pastry and Sugar Cookies

obama-canadian-beaver-tail-pastry

President Obama purchased a Canadian hot pastry called a Beavertail at Hooker’s Beavertails on George Street in Ottawa’s By Ward Market. A beavertail is a patty of wholewheat dough stretched into the shape of a beaver’s tail, and then float-cooked in canola oil. At a Canadian Embassy party marking Obama’s Inauguration, they named the beavertail the Obamatail and served it with cinnamon and sugar, along with a whipped-cream “O” topped with chocolate sauce and a splash of maple. While at the bakery he picked up maple leaf-shaped sugar cookies with red-and-white icing for his daughters. For more information on his visit to the bakery, Click Here .

Chocolate Dessert

white-house-desserts

Some kind of brownie or chocolate cake with what appears to be a raspberry, cherry, or strawberry sauce, topped with a sheet of something with chocolate and a crispy element. The wing-like crispy element could be a type of caramel waffle cone. If anyone has a better guess, please leave a comment.
