Product Description

In this memoir, Roland Mesnier, pastry chef to five presidents, recalls the stunning desserts he created for White House State Dinners, formal events, and family celebrations. The famous gingerbread White House, a frequent State Dining Room holiday showcase, grew out of the simple models he crafted for the first family's Christmas celebrations. Together with his blown-sugar confections and molded chocolate sculptures, they are a unique chapter in the history of dining in the President's House. This illustrated book features full-color images of these one-of-a-kind creations, and Chef Mesnier's stories about the people and places that inspired them.
