It's great and it's what makes us Americans … diversity.

Menu for White House State Dinner honoring the Prime Minister of Australia

   Sunchoke Ravioli with Reggiana Cream and shaved summer vegetables.  (I had no idea what a sunchoke is, but it is a Jerusalem artichoke.  An artichoke by any other name?)
    Roast Dover sole with parsley crisps and fennel mousseline
    Squash blossoms with a baby garlic rouille which is a tamer version of the sauce used for bouillabaisse in Marseilles
     Lady Apple Tart with Calvados-flavored ice cream.  Calvados comes from Normandy, France and it is apple based.  It is also nicknamed the "trou Normande" or Norman hole a reference to the fact that you can eat a seven or eight course dinner; get through dessert and start all over again!

The Last O.G. Cookbook by Tracy Morgan who plays said Original Gangster.  Never having watched it, but trying to get  plot line, research indicated that apparently the main character got out prison (crime unspecified) and started his own prison-style food truck?    Whatever.  We're here to eat!  Book is $27, 223 pages
