Come out and learn more about this intriguing First Lady and the dishes she served to help him become President of the United States.

The role of First Lady has certainly changed and developed over the years. No one knows this more than our most recent First Ladies of the 20th and 21st Centuries. However, one thing has remained constant…ENTERTAINING!! The success of a State Dinner or any number of other celebrations or events could be the difference in passing an important bill or keeping a diplomatic relationship in good standing. These First Ladies do so much more than entertain or serve a meal when they host these events. Come and enjoy a modern day history lesson over a beautiful meal made up of modern day First Lady favorites.
