FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
James Beard-award winning author Adrian Miller (“Miller”) and the prestigious Relish Catering and Events (“Relish”) have teamed up for a unique way to celebrate presidential history. Relish proudly introduces “Presidential Soul“—a special collection of menus that feature the favorite foods of our past presidents when they dined in the Executive Mansion and entertained special guests.
Miller is currently writing a book on White House chefs, and his research uncovered hundreds of presidential recipes. “I knew that Relish would be the perfect catering company to update these historical recipes for the modern kitchen and make them delicious,” Miller said. “They’ve catered events for me before, including one where the late and former White House Executive Chef Walter Scheib was a special guest. He was very impressed with their food.”
The first three menus pay tribute to Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, and also re-creates the state dinner that President Bill Clinton hosted for Republic of South Africa President Nelson Mandela in 1994. More presidential menus may be added in the future. Diners will also have the option of having Miller give a special presentation on presidential food to enhance the dining experience at their private dinner or charity event.
“I look forward to working with Adrian to bring to life these traditional recipes and presentations from our founding fathers, and exploring our culinary history,” said Brett Tucker, Relish’s owner and Executive Chef.
