Bon Appetit!
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are hosting the French State Dinner tonight for President Francois Hollande.  Three hundred and fifty guests 350 will attend this elegant affair in a massive dramatically lit indoor pavilion built on the White House grounds.  Mary J. Blige will give a command performance after dinner.
The State Dinner article below has tonight’s menu and some photos of the decor and cuisine.  I;m loving the salad in a terrarium and the array of desserts..  There is a blog post of White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford above her photo holding a wine glass.
