White House cookbook by Haller

I wanted this book because 'Haller' is my mother's maiden name. However, there is no connection that I know of! The book is great - the recipes and the history of the presidents during the time Henry Haller was chef at the White House are very interesting. I was hoping there would be colored photographs, but there are none except for the outside cover. I do recommend this book.

Wonderful Recipes Make Cherished Gift

I first purchased this book years ago, and it is still a cherished favorite. It is as much fun to browse through as it is to cook from, with well-written stories recollected of our first families. Mr. Haller included recipes which can easily be mastered by the average household cook, with photos to inspire and amuse. We enjoy this cookbook so well, we've purchased copies for family and friends over the years, and continue to do so. It makes a wonderful and thoughtful gift - a book of elegant and practical recipes, fit for coffee table display! This book has something for every taste and every occasion, and covers everyday recipes to the truly sublime, decadent to healthy, down home Southern recipes to European favorites, with everything in between. The White House Family Cookbook is truly worthy of America's talented First Chef - Henry Haller. It is also the only recipe book of which I personally own two - a "working copy" for the kitchen, and a more prestine copy for our personal library.
