Feast like the President!

I hope you checked out Katies post about Inaguration Day recipes and drinks for an awesome way to ring in our bright shinny new president. If youre still looking for more ways to celebrate the day, why not eat what Obama and 200 guests ate at the Inauguration Luncheon today? I dug up the menu and recipes for their fabulous feast and thought I would share them with you all!

The Inaugural Luncheon began in 1897 when the Senate Committee on Arrangements gave President McKinley and several guests a luncheon, although the current form of the Inaugural Luncheon did not begin until 1953. The food typically reflects the home states of the new President and Vice President.

The first course was a Seafood Stew filled with Maine Lobster and scallops. It was paired with a Buckhorn Vineyards 2007 Sauvignon Blanc.

The second course was A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck) served with Sour Cherry Chutney and Molasses Sweet Potatoes. It was paired with a Goldeneye 2005 Pinot Noir.

The third and final course was a classic Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake with Sweet Cream Clace and it was paired with Korbel Natural’s “Special Inaugural Cuvee” (a California Champagne).

The recipes for all the courses are available as a download from senate.gov, click this link to download the pdf.

Happy Obama Feast!

Turbaconducken….all that is good in this world

Just moments ago my friend Rob sent me proof that there is a God and he is made of pure bacon and love.
Behold…..

Turbaconducken

It is the perfect harmony of turkey, duck and chicken all harmoniously wrapped in bacon and baked to perfection. Corey James of Bacon Today describes every juice detail for creating this culinary masterpiece.

I am currently trying to convince all my friends that this is really the only option for thanksgiving dinner.

Only we want to step it up a notch and deep fry it! My arteries and heart are swelling just thinking about it.
