As a history buff and cook, you might think that I have a fascination with historical menus. You would be right. Regardless of political bent, the menus and food choices interest me. Here is the menu that will be featured at the inauguration this Sunday:

First Course: Steamed Lobster with New England Clam Chowder Sauce
Lobster Tails

Second Course: Hickory Grilled Bison with Red Potato Horseradish Cake and Wild Huckleberry Reduction
Bison
Butternut Squash Purée

Third Course: Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Sour Cream Ice Cream, Aged Cheese and Honey (Note: This pie sounds very much like my apple crumb!)
Pie Dough
Cinnamon Crumble
Apples
Sour Cream Ice Cream

They also have the menus for the last five inaugurations online, and most have recipes!
