Obama’s Inauguration Menu

Obama’s 2009 inauguration lunch menu featured dishes inspired by the winter season and the bicentenary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. It included stew of sea scallops, shrimp, lobster, and cod in a cream sauce, baked in a terrine covered with puff pastry; then came a winter vegetable medley and a  “brace of American birds,” such as duck and pheasant. Dessert was a cinnamon-apple sponge cake.
