President John F. Kennedys favourite fish chowder and First Lady Michelle Obamas turkey lasagna are just a couple of the dishes chosen from the National Archives of the United States which feature in this fascinating and entertaining book of 150 presidential, celebrity and government administration recipes from the United States National Archives.
This unique collection includes historical and modern-day dishes from U.S. school lunch programmes, government-sponsored radio shows, and war-time recipes meant to conserve wheat, sugar and meat.

The Governments Effect on the American Diet at the National Archives Experience in Washington, D.C., this highly illustrated recipe volume also provides historical tidbits from the presidential files, including the transcript of President George H.W.
