The White House is hosting an official state dinner tonight for Chinese president Hu Jintao. According to the AP:
“More than 200 guests will dine on a main course of dry-aged rib eye steak with buttermilk crisp onions, double stuffed potatoes and creamed spinach.
There’s a first course of pear salad and a second course of poached Maine lobster with orange-glazed carrots and black trumpet mushrooms.”
Funny, my chef made this same thing tonight.
