US National Archives opens presidential food exhibit

Exhibit of presidential food favourites goes on display at the US National Archives

The US National Archives has opened a new exhibit featuring the favourite creative cuisine adored by some of the country's greatest presidents. 

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is singled out as a lifelong gourmand, while Chef José Andrés presents the America Eats exhibit.

The event talks about the impact that governmental policy had on the nation's diet and the way in which food can solve many of the problems currently faced by the US.

Chef Andrés is famous for spearheading small plates dining in the US, with dishes such as his Pollo al chilindrón, which combines chicken and peppers with a variety of herbs, including sea salt, bay leaves and rosemary.

Additionally, the exhibit will feature the memoirs of those close to notable presidents, according to the Daily Mail.

Chief among them are those of White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier, who reports that Bill Clinton had a soft spot for chocolate cake despite an allergy to dairy products, chocolate and flour.
