Heard there was a huge dinner held.......wonder if the menu had chicken biryani
See, I hope it was the finest American cuisine. Complete with apple pie for dessert.
Not that I mind Indian food, especially Punjabi food. It's the best food in the world! But he's visiting the U.S., so he should enjoy the best of our cuisine!
Incidentally, I was once invited to a social function at the Indian consulate in New York City. OMG the food was good! They had one of the best chefs flown in from the embassy in D.C. I ate so much I felt sick the next day, but it was SOOOO worth it!
Mrs. Obama worked with Guest Chef Marcus Samuelsson and White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford and her team to create a menu that reflects the best of American cuisine, continues this White House’s commitment to serving fresh, sustainable and regional food, and honors the culinary excellence and flavors that are present in Indian cuisine. Herbs and lettuces are harvested from the White House Kitchen Garden.
