I read an interesting article (Cooking for the Commander in Chief) on how they fix it up over at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
White House Executive Chef Criseta Comerford, Philippine born and trained in traditional French Cuisine at the University of the Philippines’s Food-Technology Program, presides over a small kitchen with 12 Vulcan burners, a gas grill, a salmander broiler and a convection oven that doubles as a steamer.
She can cook casual for the first family (Laura Bush promoted her to the top job in the top kitchen) or preside over 40 or more chefs for a state dinner.
They can also draw from the 1,100 square foot Organic White House Garden on the South Lawn which grows, among other things Cilantro, Green Oak Leaf Lettuce, Black Kale, Chiles, Parsley, and Sweet Orange Tomatoes.
If you are curious about how the most powerful family in the world eats, the article is a good place to start.
