Preparing The German State Dinner
Independent Films, Politics
Take a peek into the White House kitchen as White House Executive Chef Cris Comerford prepares for the State Dinner for Germany. Celebrating the first harvest of the spring, the evening’s menu uses local ingredients – including vegetables and herbs from the White House Kitchen Garden. Created by First Lady Michelle Obama in March of 2009, the Kitchen Garden has become a hub for activities at the White House. In the early spring of this year, students from local elementary schools planted vegetables. On June 3rd, only four days shy of the State Dinner, American Indian children joined the First Lady to plant traditional Native American crops and also harvested these vegetables just in time for the dinner.
Watch the latest videos from the White House, including speeches by
President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton, Q&A sessions with the White House staff,
ceremonies honoring the American War Heroes, and events and
celebrations held for many social, cultural, and political issues.
