Capital Hill Cooks
With love of great cuisine and the bounty of our nation evident throughout this book, CAPITOL HILL COOKS contains recipes from members of Congress, as well as every president from George Washington (Cranberry Pudding) to Abraham Lincoln (Mary Todd Lincoln’s Vanilla Almond Cake) to Barack Obama (The Obama Family’s Linguini). Taste Vice President Biden's Kahlua Chocolate Fudge Cake, Senator Charles Grassley’s Bacon and Bean Chowder, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's Minnesota Rhubarb Dessert, Congressman Ron Paul's Texas Sweeties, or Senator Scott Brown's Italian Soup…and hundreds more. Many contributors to this book even include notes about their ethnic backgrounds, favorite indigenous foods, and fond memories of meals shared with others. (“Barack really likes this,” the first lady says of her own apple crisp.)
CAPITOL HILL COOKS will raise funds to be contributed to Homes for Our Troops (www.homesforourtroops.org), an organization dedicated to assisting severely injured servicemen and women build or adapt their homes for handicapped accessibility. The finished home is then given to the veteran.
