Do you remember Sam Kass, the White House chef we blogged about last January? We OMG’d then when we first saw his photo but here’s an even more sexier photo of the bald hunk. Gawd. He is so shaggable! He is probably the sexiest bald guy these days, no? We can’t think of any other current guy who can out-sexy him.
Chef to the Commander in Chief: Sam Kass Goes to the White House
28 January 2009
UPDATE: Here’s his photo. OMG. He is a total hottie. Those Gawker folks should include Sam Kass in their hottie contest if the voting is not over.
Good for you, Sam. I like his emphasis on local food. I also like the fact that the Obamas are keeping Cristeta Comerford.
The Caucus: Sam Kass, a private chef for the Obamas while they were living in Chicago, is now working in the White House.
A spokeswoman for Michelle Obama, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, said Mr. Kass will not be the only cook preparing the family’s meals, but “he knows what they like and he happens to have a particular interest in healthy food and local food.” He will work alongside the White House executive chef, Cristeta Comerford, who was promoted to that job by the Bushes and is being kept on in that role by the Obamas.
Mr. Kass’s appointment signals changes at the White House that should please chefs like Alice Waters, who have lobbied the Obamas to set an example for the rest of the country by emphasizing food that is healthy, local and sustainable. It further suggests that a vegetable garden on the White House grounds, another of Ms. Waters’ dreams, could be on the horizon.
Well, we hope that a vegetable garden in the White House becomes a reality and that this will encourage people to raise their vegetables when they can.
