The First Supper II

James Polk to James Garfield

Our next ten presidents were more of seafood eaters. French cuisine was entering the palettes of high society. No state dinner would be complete without plenty of oysters, clams, and chowder. Andrew Johnson however choose to go a different route. His popcorn parties stole the show.
