More than a collection of recipes from the Presidents and First Ladies of the United States, The White House Cook Book is a reference to the historical, social, and personal events that have taken place in The White House. I especially enjoy the formal dinner menus and the First Ladies' etiquette and household rules. The biographies are delightful reading.
