One supposedly former White House chef has quite a lot to say in his new memoir, Sir White House Chef, from George W. Bush smoking marijuana regularly and drinking quite a bit of whiskey, to Bill Clinton regularly seducing his young female staffers. He also claims that he lied on his resume about his culinary degree. The kicker? According to The New York Post, who interviewed the author in question, Ronnie Seaton, about his scandalous book, the White House has no record of Seaton ever working there.
The contents of the book read like a long list of fabricated (though entertaining stories). According to Seaton, he was the only chef to be knighted by Queen Elizabeth II:
“Master Chef, do you think it’s possible that I could get the recipe for your dessert?” she asked.
“‘Yes, Your Majesty,’ I said as I raised my eyes to meet hers, ‘but you don’t have enough money.’
“‘What?’ The Queen asked.
“President Bush looked at the others and me very quickly as if to say, ‘Oh, Lord, we’re in trouble now.’”
Seaton claims that during the dinner, he playfully mocked George Bush II, and then he was personally invited afterward to cook at Buckingham Palace.
The New York Post has also confirmed that Seaton’s claims that he attended Cornell University and received purple hearts for his service in the Vietnam War were also fabricated.
