Sam Kass is cooking the Obama's meals in DC officially, under White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford....hopefully not literally. He has the pedigree you would expect from any Obama pick, i.e. University of Chicago undergrad degree, Michelin-approved training in Europe, and then at the lovley little Avec in the West Loop, before becoming a private chef.
I thought I didn't care about this. But now that a Chicagoan is in the First Kitchen, I'm plenty happy to root for the hometeam one more time. Between the Cubs and Blago, we need to bask in all the sunshine we can get.
