“Politics & Pot Roast” is a new edition of the cookbook compiled by Sarah Hood Salomon. Illustrated by Glenn Foden. ISBN: 978-1-931721-79-0. Copyright 2006. Hardcover with 207 pages.
Featuring fabulously flavorful recipes and appetizingly amusing anecdotes of U.S. Presidents & First Ladies. This bipartisan cookbook contains over 190 original, tested and tasty recipes, including Mary Washington’s Gyngerbrede, James Monroe’s Minted Fruit Cordial, L.B.J.’s Pedernales River Chili, and Mamie Eisenhower’s Million-dollar Fudge. The book provides a glimpse into the kitchen of each administration and includes brief descriptions of Presidential parties and weddings. Each recipe is accompanied by unusual facts and amusing anecdotes. For example, the night of Grant’s second inaugural ball was so bitterly cold that many guests danced with their coats on and the food froze solid!
