Yeah, I know I'm late with the President Hu jokes. Been kinda busy...
I was amused to find that the All-American food menu served to Hu Jintao and his retinue on their state visit was requested specifically by the Chinese. Likely this was due to the serving of Indian food to India and Mexican food to Mexico when they visited Obama and were served upscale expensive versions of things they could eat at home. I'm surprised they were able to go an entire meal without any Wagyu; Obie & Moo probably had to sneak to the kitchen later for a Kobe Snack after Hu rolled out the front door (the side door is only for the Dalai Lama)
The Official Hu Menu:
D'Anjou Pear with Farmstead Goat Cheese
Fennel, Black Walnuts, and White Balsamic
Poached Maine Lobster
Orange Glaze Carrots and Black Trumpet Mushrooms
Wine: DuMol Chardonnay "Russian River" 2008 (California)
Dry Aged Rib Eye with Buttermilk Crisp Onions
Double Stuffed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach
Wine: Quilceda Creek Cabernet "Columbia Valley" 2005 (Washington State)
Old Fashioned Apple Pie
with Vanilla Ice Cream
Smart move, obeying your master's wishes, Obama-san. He can get Moo Shoo Pork any time he wants it. If he needs Wagyu, he sends a commando team to Japan to take a cow. Was it smart to pick a Russsian River wine though? They might have thought you were mocking them with a Russia joke.
Fried onions dipped in fatty buttermilk...goat cheese....ice cream....sugary pie....sugary sweet carrot glaze.....heavy cream drowning that healthy spinach....for shame, Moochelle. That's not very healthy. Did you scold Emperor Hu on eating healthy or did you avert eye contact & bow a lot?
