Home Cooking at the White House
April 30, 2009
In association with the Concord Museum's special exhibition, Setting the President's Table, food historian Barbara Haber uses cookbooks, memoirs and menus to tell the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of White House meals and those who cook, serve and dine in the public and private spaces of this unique home. The former curator of the Schlesinger Library at Harvard, Haber has been featured on the Today Show and Martha Stewart Living, and in Bon Appetit, the New Yorker and other publications. For her many contributions to the study of food, she has received prestigious awards from the James Beard Foundation and Les Dames d'Escoffier.
