Now The President Must Eat! JT January 20, 2009 Politics 10 Comments Iâ€™m sure many of you were closely following the Inauguration this morning, as I was, knowing the historical impact of this incredible event.Â Then, like me, once the event was over, you probably thought, what will President Obamaâ€™s first meal be?Â Like everything else on this day, these details have been planned for a long time, and the theme of the luncheon is â€˜A New Birth of Freedomâ€™ (honoring the 200th anniversary of President Lincolnâ€™s birth).Â Therefore, the menu features some of Lincolnâ€™s favorite foods, which is actually pretty cool. MENU First Course: Seafood Stew (Paired with Duckhorn Vineyards 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley) Second Course: A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck), served with Sour Cherry Chutney and Molasses Sweet Potatoes (Paired with Goldeneye 2005 Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley) Third Course: Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glace (Paired with Korbel International “Special Inaugural Cuvee,” California Champagne) I hope the afternoon schedule is light, because there are lots of glasses of wine going around!
