Washington - A slap-up meal in a specially erected South Lawn 'choom room' - uh, event tent! - tonight will feature the State of Colorado's finest produce, White House spokesman Jay Carney said today.
Much thought had gone into menu creation for the evening's State Dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande, Carney said, to reflect the USA's new national mood.
A sneak preview seen by QM-NewsCorpse stringers shows dinner starting with flambé Denver weed shrimp followed by Colorado rib eye beef for the main course and a selection of the Highest State's flagship desserts - 'mostly pot and pistachio ice cream with choc 'n' pot crust, cannabis sauce plus a selection of pot petit fours' for pudding.
Denver-born new White House head chef Joe Herbitz is keen to show off cutting edge culinary skills for the white tie reception and will be pulling out all the stops to impress, Carney added.
One ounce of Colorado Cracker home grown retails at around $2,000.
