Overview

When Jacqueline Kennedy told her social secretary, Letitia Baldrige, that she planned to make some changes to White House entertaining, neither of them could have foreseen what would follow. Within a few short years, Jacqueline Kennedy's natural elegance and taste would completely transform how the White House -- and America -- entertained. With French cuisine in the State Dining Room and Pablo Casals playing in the East Room, Jackie created some of the most memorable occasions in White House history and set a standard for hospitality that the whole country would emulate.

Now Letitia Baldrige and White House chef Rene Verdon have collaborated to recreate some of the most famous evenings of that storied era. Through Letitia Baldrige's intimate, behind-the-scenes recollections, complemented by seldom-seen photographs and memorabilia, these glittering parties are brought to life once again. And with five original menus and over 35 authentic recipes by Rene Verdon, carefully adapted and tested for modern kitchens, everyone can now experience some of the atmosphere of those magical evenings inspired by Jacqueline Kennedy.
