Sam Kass Is Ready for His Close-Up


Obama Foodorama has a preview of the October issue of Men’s Health, which, in addition to a cover shot of the president himself, features the first-ever in-depth profile of his chef. Sam Kass, who worked with the Obamas in Chicago and oversaw the planting of the White House garden, is profiled by none other than Mark Bittman, who also interviewed other members of Mrs. Obama’s food policy team for the story. Expect Bittman’s piece to provide a more nuanced look at Kass than People magazine did earlier this year when it named the White House chef as one of its 100 Most Beautiful People.
