Those interested in the more personal history of our chief executives and the changing tastes in Euro-American cuisine should hunt this up -- there are copies galore of various editions here on Amazon and elsewhere. As this was published by Parents' Magazine Press, you're not going to find any dirt on Kennedy's affairs or James Buchanan's possible sexuality, so don't be disappointed that this is strictly G-rated material and put your political attitudes aside. Worth having just for the rather garish mid-century technicolor photography alone, reminiscent of many of my mom's cookbooks from the 40s and 50s.
Most of the foods are more for display and impression than for modern eating, but it was fun reading about the White House kitchen and the expectations put on the President for entertain visitors.
An excellent book to have around for the study of food history at the most famous home in the United States.
