Lunch of Lincoln

Monday, January 19, 2009

President-elect Barack Obama has taken care to draw parallels between himself and Abraham Lincoln. From appointing a “team of rivals” to choosing to share the same bible for his presidential swearing in and being tall and from Illinois. But did you know that come lunch time tomorrow the 16th and the new 44th president will have shared a meal? Well, not exactly, but the President-elect's first lunch as president is inspired by Lincoln's favorite foods. We are joined by New York Times food writer Melissa Clark who has whipped up some of the recipes from Barack Obama's first lunch as president.
