Obama's Inaugural Luncheon Menu
What will President Obama have for his Inauguration Lunch?
Well for 200 members of Congress, Obama is keeping it traditional and American.
Here is a look at the luncheon menu.
First, a seafood stew. The main course, pheasant and duck served with sour cherry chutney and molasses sweet potatoes. As for dessert, the Obama lunch will end with an apple cinnamon sponge cake topped with sweet cream glace.
Feinstein did use her chairperson's perogative to insure that all the wines will be from California, including the sparkling wine served with dessert.
The lunch will be served on replica china plates that Mary Lincoln picked out for the White House when Abraham Lincoln had his own Inaugural lunch.
When Lincoln had his Presidential lunch, he had a more simple menu of root vegetable and wild game, but Obama is a bit more fancy than that.
