Tax money going to celebrities! USA! USA! Isn't this the kind of hero worship nonsense republicans usually do? The limbaughs of the world are going to have a field day with this, and for once, he'll be right.

The new scheme, which has already been trialled, replaces the traditional approach which relied on French cooking and catering menus to serve special guests.



What they are going to change it?
Nothing represents the diversity of American culture better than French cooking and stuff you get at weddings and meetings.

Except a big old pile of Corndogs and Pepsi.

They should get Gordon Ramsay to cook for them. It would be good entertainment and good food!

People who visit from Japan don't want to eat Japanese cuisine, they want to try American fare. Dooshbag Hillary pulled a boner again. The White House should serves visitors true american food - Burger King, McDonald, KFC, Wendy and Chinese Take-Out.

/Coke or Pepsi?

i for one am outraged that our government is going to spend money hosting foreign dignitaries. i say print them a map of the nearest mc donald's and let them fend for themselves.
 
2012-09-10 05:59:50 AM
This is all fine and everything, but it's not foreign dignitaries who are (publicly) making fun of us. It's foreign everyone else. And domestic me.

Don't serve Coke to the Chinese...you know what'll happen.

So they'll be serving gourmet hot-dogs, burgers and Dorito shell tacos?

Wait... the Daily Mail printed something reasonably favorable about an American politician...

...and a woman?

o.O

I am very suspicious. They are trying to lure us in.

Is this the point that we've reached? Where the White House menu us a hugely controversial and highly partisan issue?

Plus you would think the political right would support a more "Amercican" cuisine over serving French cuisine. But then "logic" and "Obama derangement syndrome" do not mix very well.

Anyone who thinks that constitutes American food culture is a farking idiot and doesn't deserve good food in the 1st place.

We used to be the country where foreign dignitaries could get away from "safe" salmon dinners and sink their teeth into some juicy beef.

A nacho cheese dorito taco shell sounds nasty (if used as a taco shell, that is).

American food can be very tasty if you know where to look. I deny any non-vegetarian Farker to say that they would pass a Texas steak cooked to their liking. Or a fresh lobster roll from New England. Or Southern BBQ from their favorite state.

/damn, shouldn't have skipped breakfast

I certainly wouldn't.

csb:

My in-laws have a place in the lakes region of NH. One day a year, a truck comes to the local market with live lobster from Maine (Portland, ME is about 2 hours away) and sells them off the truck at either 3.99 or 4.99 a pound. We bought a dozen... enough for whole lobster dinner one night and homemade lobster rolls the next day. Awesome!

And, at the risk of being ridiculed, The Yankee Smokehouse in Ossipee, NH is fantastic.

The problem I see is that Celebrity Chefs are expert at creating food that looks good on camera, and that is the only thing that they are expert at.

Yeah that is weird. We're going to teach the Chines how to cook Chinese food??

When King George VI and the queen visited from England in 1939, President Roosevelt had them over for a picnic at his Hyde Park NY estate.'


PICNIC MENU

No, we reached that point in 2009 when Obama had his first state dinner.

This outrage is over the State Department's menus.

Wait until they find out that the Fed Chair has his own private chef and dining room where he entertains international bankers and dignitaries.

These aren't tourists. They travel non-stop, and these dinners are part of the job. Nobody is stopping them from eating at Mama's Rib Shack while they're here. These dinners are about diplomacy, and that's an entirely different endeavor than experiencing local cuisine. And for not realizing that, you pulled a boner.

/no idea what that's supposed to mean

I met Duff from Ace of Cakes last week and he was talking about this. He said that they were sending him overseas to another country (which I won't name, just in case it hasn't been announced yet) and he asked them for a little extra security "Because I'm not sure how thrilled they're going to be about a dude with the last name Goldman."

Man, he was one mellow dude. Very down to Earth I have to say. Not an ounce of pretension in that guy, which I think is really nice to see.

I have to admit, I just don't get why the people who gave us Tourtiere, a meat pie that blows English and Welsh meat pies out of the water, would choose to focus on poutine.

/Grandmother was French Canadian, and I love the Christmas Tourtiere
//Canadian bacon and B grade maple syrup are the fantastic

FFS. I just Googled 'Tourtiere'. I thought all those poor canadians were stuck eating chips and gravey when in actuallity they've been hiding decent pie. No-one told me that when I was sent to Montreal :(

/People think all England has is fish and chips.
//whenever a foreigner visists I take them to the pie shop to show them what we really have.

You also have pasties, which I love. Again, though, I am going to say I prefer my French-Canadian grandmother's pasties (her family moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan). The crust is rolled out so thin you can see through it, and it makes all the difference.

The New England themed state dinner was a disaster.

It ended with a prominent party donor throttling the French Ambassadorr while yelling. "It's pronounced 'Chow-dah!' "Chow-dah" I'll kill you, you stupid toad-sucker!" New Englanders really are crazy about their accents.

You know how touchy the French are. They nearly nuked Springfield, Mass. but discovered that there was also a Springfiled in Illinois, Texas, and in nearly every other state, and could not decide which one to hit first.
