Armchair Cheffing the State Dinner


Youve already seen what Marc Forgiones idea of a traditional American meal looks like, so what does the White House prepare for Chinese President Hu Jintao when its asked for a quintessentially American state dinner? Francis Lam is bored by what he sees on the menu namely meat, potatoes, and apple pie la mode (not exactly American, but lets be real, is there any better dessert?): I just wish the version of America they're serving on the plate would look more like the vision of America as we are today a nation that revels in e pluribus unum.
