What Oprah Eats at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago
Mar-a-Lago is Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s lavish and palatial Palm Beach estate and private club, a Mediterranean-style mansion with 118 rooms that was built in 1926 by a cereal heiress. Today, Trump uses it to entertain and escape from the daily grind, and members can stay there and also use the ballroom (which Trump added in 2005) to host grand events.
There’s a restaurant on the property at Mar-a-Lago, but its menu isn’t available online. We do have an idea of what some of the most popular dishes are, though, thanks to none other than Oprah Winfrey, who threw an 80th birthday party for Maya Angelou there in 2008.
Apparently, Oprah is a big fan of Mar-a-Lago’s turkey burger, of all things. Enough so to post the recipe online. "I believe [it] may be the best turkey burger in the entire world," Oprah has said. The recipe calls for sautéed apples and Tabasco sauce, among other things. The burger is topped with pear chutney, which she also published the recipe for.
Finally, Oprah is also a fan of Mar-a-Lago’s key lime pie, which is supposedly the most-requested dessert at the club. Made with a graham cracker crust and plenty of key lime juice, it’s a fairly straightforward recipe, and you can find it on Oprah’s site here.
