What’s On The Inauguration Luncheon Menu?


On January 21, 225 guests will arrive at the White House to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration… again! As they mingle and slap Barry on the back, thanking him for sharing the White House’s beer recipe with the masses, they’ll also feast on a menu from Arlington-based catering company Design Cuisine.

Obamafoodorama made the menu public (after the jump) and said that the theme of the luncheon will be “Faith in America’s Future.” Of course, all the food is farm-to-table, artisanal, sustainable, and local.

Fear not, plebeian. You too can dine like the President. The blog posted recipes on how to make all these dishes at home.
