By Linda Bauer

Book Description

Publication Date: August 16, 2010

With love of great cuisine and the bounty of our nation evident throughout this book, "Capitol Hill Cooks" contains recipes from members of Congress, as well as every president from George Washington (Cranberry Pudding) to Abraham Lincoln (Mary Todd Lincoln's Vanilla Almond Cake) to Barack Obama (The Obama Family's Linguini). Taste Vice President Biden's Kahlua Chocolate Fudge Cake, Sen. Charles Grassley's Bacon and Bean Chowder or Sen. Scott Brown's Italian Soup, Rep. Michele Bachmann's Minnesota Rhubarb Dessert or Rep. Ron Paul's Texas Sweeties and hundreds more. Many contributors to this book even include notes about their ethnic backgrounds, favorite indigenous foods and fond memories of meals shared with others. ("Barack really likes this," the first lady says of her own apple crisp.)
