Dining at the White House: From the President's Table to Yours
Chef John Moeller's cookbook begins with a question, “How does a kid from the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country end up cooking for international heads of state at the White House?"
Join us at the Ovation Welcome Center when Chef Moeller takes us on his thirteen-year journey serving three First Families; those of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. He'll share behind-the-scenes tales of cooking for dignitaries and presidential children alike.
The presentation will be followed by lunch.
