“White House Chef”


Last week, Paul and Carmel Biko had a five-course dinner with eight friends at the Hilton Harrisburg, prepared by former White House executive chef Walter Scheib. The Bikos bid $21,000 for the meal during Tres Bonne Annee, Harrisburg’s international wine auction for the benefit of the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts.

Now Chef Scheib’s abrupt exit from the Bush White House and his battles with the Bush family’s social secretary are detailed in his new book, “White House Chef.”  Marian Burros does the New York Times profile. (Registration required.)
