Say hello to the new White House chef…

…same as the old White House chef: the obviously very talented Ms. Cristeta Comerford. Thus endeth ANOTHER very silly period of wild speculation — and demands — by some of the more obnoxious corners of the food blogosphere. Actually it wasn’t just the blogosphere, now hat I think about it. The Chicago Tribune got into it, as did The New York Times which claimed a variety of untrue things in its coverage of the story, among them that Obama would be the first American president to eat organic and/or sustainable and/or local food. In fact the Bushes have been eating that way — though not exclusively that way — since they entered the White House. The Clintons did so before them. Shoddy research, it seems, can happen anywhere.

Thank goodness all that nonsense is over.
