Eat Like a President: Recipes Prepared for President Barack Obama

By Emelyn Rude | November 6, 2012

Happy election day! Over the course of the past term, Chef Samuelsson has had the tremendous opportunity to prepare important meals for President Obama and his family, such as at his first State Dinner or at a DNC fundraiser held at the Chef’s restaurant Red Rooster in Harlem. Though not for the faint of heart in the kitchen, these recipes will certainly get you in the mood for the good ‘ol democratic process. So eat like a President as we all vote to decide upon the next one.
