A Foodie in the White House: Edible D.C.

A foodie in the White House!  Above, Barack Obama, then a state senator, appears in a 2001 episode of Chicago's version of Check, Please! 

Our nation's capital is abuzz with Obama fans today, but our nation's best publications have been abuzz with Washington, D.C., food news for weeks. Here are some of the more appetizing headlines:

* The White House Chef Wars (Gourmet)
* Despite the flailing economy, Washington, D.C. restaurateurs see rays of hope emanating from Barack Obama (New York Times)
* Bon Appétit has an Inauguration Day dinner planned out, you just have to cook it
* The recipe for Andrew Jackson's Inaugural Orange Punch, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal
* Ex White House chefs dish about presidential palates (Chicago Sun-Times)
* The first suppers: A tradition of inaugural meals (Los Angeles Times)
* Metrocurean, a healthy serving of epicurean news from a D.C. blogger
