A cooking memoir that is a big hit with all members of my family (an unusual event in and of itself) is White House Chef by Walter Scheib, published in 2007. Although I confess to not having made any of the recipes (The White House Chef has a White House staff to assist him after all!), it is interesting just for the glimpse of life at the President’s home.
We learn what Bill Clinton liked to eat when Hilary was out of town and the different atmosphere created by different residents.
The truth is the recipes don’t even look very difficult.
Check it out from your local library; it’s a fun read.
