Menu for President Trump’s First State Dinner Offers Many Different Types of Food

Tomorrow night, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will host their very first state dinner at the White House. Their guests of honor will be French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron.

The dinner will be a grand affair with 150 guests invited, including Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and IMF head Christine Lagarde.

Anticipation is growing for the event, and journalists all over town are itching to see just how well the Trumps put on such an important dinner. State dinners are widely seen as barometers for just how well a president gets along with other foreign leaders.

First Lady Melania Trump previewed a bit of the scenery for the dinner earlier today on Twitter:

But that’s not the best part. The French are famous for the gastronomy. And First Lady Trump isn’t aiming to disappoint! The menu for the dinner is full of plenty of exquisite offerings.

The Daily Mail provides all the scrumptious details:

The first lady’s office said Monday that  the menu for Tuesday’s dinner would consist of: Goat Cheese Gateau, Tomato Jam, Buttermilk Biscuit Crumbles, Young Variegated Lettuces, Rack of Spring Lamb, Burnt Cipollini Soubise, Carolina Gold Rice Jambalaya, Nectarine Tart and Crème Fraîche Ice Cream.

Tomorrow’s meal is being prepared by White House Executive Chef Christeta Comerford.

China from both the Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush administrations will be used during the upscale meal.

My mouth is watering from just reading about it! But that’s not the coolest part. The dinner’s wine pairing is a really thoughtful selection from the First Lady:

Wine selection was also chosen with the French-American friendship in mind. The Domaine Serene Chardonnay “Evenstad Reserve” 2015 was grown from French plants from Dijon “that thrive in the volcanic Oregon soil.” The Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir “Laurène” 2014 “uses the motto ‘French soul–Oregon soil.'”

But it gets even better: the evening will end with entertainment from the Washington National Opera.

With First Lady Trump at the helm, the dinner should be a big success. Remember how well she decorated the White House for Christmas?

No doubt it will be a wonderful evening full of glamour and diplomacy.
