WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (Reuters)- From Maine lobster to California white wines, President Joe Biden will showcase the flavors of America at a state dinner on Thursday for French President Emmanuel Macron. Biden and his partner, Jill, and Macron and his partner, Brigitte, are to collect with their guests in a pavilion set up on the South Yard of the White House for the centerpiece occasion of the very first state check out hosted by Biden given that he took workplace in early 2021. The menu will include some American specialties, butter poached lobster from Maine, American Osetra caviar, and beef and potatoes followed by cheeses from Oregon, California and Wisconsin. All this will be washed down by white wines from California -Newton “Unfiltered” Chardonnay and Anakota”Knights Valley”Cabernet Sauvignon, in addition to a California sparkling wine with French roots, Roederer Estate Brut Rose.
The dessert will include Orange chiffon cake and roasted pears with citrus sauce together with”creme fraiche ice cream.” Serving American-made white wine to official French visitors is not original to Biden. Donald Trump served Macron a”Domaine Serene”Chardonnay from Oregon, grown from plants from Dijon, France, and an Oregon Pinot Noir from the”Domaine Drouhin”winery that traces its roots to Burgundy in the 1880s. Barack Obama served French President François Hollande a Chardonnay from a Virginia’s Thibaut-Janisson Winery, founded by two French natives.
