From Library Journal
Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan enjoyed Haller's services as executive chef at the White House. His anecdotes are blended here with recipes served to each family, his own personal favorites, and scaled-down recipes for state events. The recipes cover a wide range: the Johnsons' barbecued ribs, Nixon's farewell breakfast hash, Reagan's favorite macaroni and cheese, Haller's crepes gruyere. The text sometimes verges on the obsequious, but the anecdotes are surprisingly interesting, even entertaining. For larger collections. SP
