A National Archives exhibit in Washington has been offering US citizens a brief history of the government's effect on the nation's diet as well as listing all its presidents' favourite dishes.
The visitors can take a look back at the recipes including Lyndon B. Johnson's 'chili', John F. Kennedy's 'fish chowder' and Dwight D Eisenhower's three-page guide to 'vegetable soup' in the exhibit- 'What's Cooking Uncle Sam?'.
AdvertisementApart from presidential menus and Queen Elizabeth's recipe for scones sent to Eisenhower, the curators have also tried to present the history of farming, food processing, nutrition guidelines and the effects of military food and school lunches, reports the Daily Mail.
The exhibit is on view until January 3, 2012.
