President Trump Attends Inaugural Luncheon

posted by MH - 

Newly sworn in as President of the United States, Donald Trump's first order of business was to have lunch.

The Inaugural Lunch takes part in the National Statuary Hall of the Capitol. Invited are 200 elected officials and dignitaries.

The luncheon is a tradition that began in 1897. It's a three-course meal, and although President Trump is an outspoken fan of fast food, the menu is a far cry from what you'd find at a McDonald's.

The first course includes Maine lobster and Gulf shrimp with saffron sauce and peanut crumble. Potato dumplings are also offered.

The main course features grilled Seven Hills angus beef with dark chocolate sauce and juniper juice with potato gratin.

For dessert, there is chocolate souffle and cherry-vanilla ice cream.

Some drinks being served are J. Lohr 2013 Arroyo Vista chardonnay, Delicato Black Stallion 2012 Limited Release Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon and Korbel Natural "Special Inaugural Cuvee" California Champagne.

The best part? You can make all of the food yourself if you so wish, as the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies has posted the full recipes online.
