November 25, 2009

Below is  the official menu of the White House State Dinner to honor India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who is a vegetarian. It’s all veggie, save the prawns.
And this is what guests were wearing.

Potato and Eggplant Salad
White House Arugula
With Onion Seed Vinaigrette

Red Lentil Soup with Fresh Cheese

Roasted Potato Dumplings
With Tomato Chutney
Chick Peas and Okra
Green Curry Prawns
Caramelized Salsify
With Smoked Collard Greens
and Coconut Aged Basmati

Pumpkin Pie Tart
Pear Tatin
Whipped Cream and Caramel Sauce

Petits Fours and Coffee
Cashew Brittle
Pecan Pralines
Passion Fruit and Vanilla Gelees
Chocolate-Dipped Fruit
