The White House cooking team is getting into the holiday spirit!

Last Friday the Executive Chef and Executive Pastry Chef took over the First Lady’s instagram account to share a behind-the-scenes peak at what it’s like to prepare for a White House reception.

In early December the White House opened its door and presented a “A Children’s Winter Wonderland” “celebrating the pureness that the holidays bring, as seen through the eyes of children,” The White House website states. “The magic and joy of a Winter Wonderland through a child’s eyes transform the White House and its stately, storied room, remind us all of the beauty of this holiday season and the blessings we have experienced over the past year.”

As you prepare your holiday meals, get some tips and join in with the White House Christmas cheer.
