  1. Hi everyone! It's Chef Cris Comerford and Pastry Chef Bill Yosses - we're taking over the White House Instagram to give you a look inside the kitchen as we get ready for tomorrow's State Dinner for France. Thanks for following along. #InsideTheWH -Cris and Bill
  2. As local as you can get! We're using honey from the White House beehive in a vinaigrette to dress a Winter Garden Salad with mixed radishes and baby carrots. Each season the color of the honey changes. Here you can see the difference between 2012 and 2013. #InsideTheWH -Cris
  3. We're using a paint sprayer (previously unused of course) to give a micro-thin layer of chocolate over soft and creamy ganache cake. The bittersweet chocolate comes from Hawaii, and it will be served à la mode with vanilla ice-cream from Pennsylvania. #InsideTheWH -Bill
  4. Here's a first look at the Winter Garden Salad that we're serving at tomorrow's State Dinner. The salad features herbs from the White House Kitchen Garden, and the dressing uses honey from the beehive on the South Lawn. #InsideTheWH -Cris
  5. Sugar roses and fleur-de-lis, the official flowers of the United States and France. We made 38 of each - that's more than 1,800 petals! #InsideTheWH -Bill
