Past Inaugural Luncheon Menus

Today President Obama will serve his second inaugural luncheon.  Last year he served Lincoln inspired foods such as pheasant, whipped sweet potatoes and cinnamon apple sponge cake. 

 

At President Clinton’s second inaugural luncheon he served shrimp, oyster & scallop pie before serving beggar’s pudding and quince ice cream for dessert.

 

President Kennedy’s guests dined on American specialties such as Texas ribs and New England boiled lobster.

 

President Buchanan had 6,000 guests at his inaugural luncheon.  His staff made 400 gallons of oysters, 60 saddles of mutton and 125 beef tongues.

 

President Madison’s first lady, Dolley, loved ice cream so much that he served it for dessert at his second inaugural meal.
