White House chef is one of the most strenuous and coveted positions in the culinary world. Chef Walter Scheib revealed to The Daily Show, “Everything you do is based on what the families want — the Clinton’s liked one style and the Bushes like another.”
He found that preferences didn’t divide so much along party lines as they did gender. “The guys would have been just as happy if we opened a TGI Friday’s in the basement. They kind of dined on the concept it was good, if you melted cheese on it, it was even better.” This shows in the weird, eccentric favorite foods Scheib and other White House chefs reveal that presidents loved, next.
