Currying Favor*

From "Flags of the Sydney International Food Festival" via Passionfruit Butter

The Hindustan Times reports on the White House State Dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Sounds like a bad mishmash of my wedding and Project Runway: “[It] has turned into the most sought after ticket in the US capital, but with officials keeping mum on the guest list, it’s not known who is in and who is out.”

Obama Foodorama presents the austere yet yummy-sounding menu.  So glad the chef isn’t attempting soft poached squash ki sabji or heirloom arugula ka halwa. I’d hate to have to kick someone. Update: Rumor circulating that “chocolate-dipped fruit” is instead chocolate-dipped jalebi. Not sure about this.

* Title stolen from Sepia Mutiny who a) stole the title themselves from the oh-so-original media and b) have all the goods on this latest episode of Obama India Bhai Bhai.

    Interesting choice of Marcus Samuelsson as chef (or consulting chef, or whatever).
