Transitioning from a high school passion to a culinary degree to a 2.5-year year journey to learn the art of French cuisine, chef John Moeller eventually landed among the elite in the White House. From 1992 until 2005, Moeller served in the White House as sous chef and then as White House chef, preparing top-notch cuisine for presidents, first families and guests during the administrations of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Moeller’s book, “Dining at the White House: From the President’s Table to Yours” (LifeReloaded), portrays an insider’s view of his most memorable moments cooking for first families and provides more than 100 unique recipes that use fresh seasonal produce and are finished with exquisite presentation.
