Firstwoman WhiteHouse headche fhired

Firstwoman White House headche fhired

kitchen duties may have traditionally been viewed as women's work, but not at the white house. until now: cristeta comerford has been named executive chef.
after an extensive six-month search, first lady laura bush announced sunday that comerford was chosen from hundreds of applicants to head the executive kitchen. a naturalized u.s. citizen from the philippines, she will be the first woman and first minority to hold the post.
the 42-year-old comerford has been an assistant chef at the white house for 10 years. she worked under former executive chef walter scheib iii, who resigned in february.
scheib said sunday that comerford was hands down the best assistant he had in his 30-year career and is a wonderful choice to take over. he said she is a great cook with an artistic eye and a calm demeanor that can handle the pressure cooker that is the white house kitchen.
while being executive chef at the white house is prestigious, the job also can be grueling. comerford will be in charge of whipping up everything from state dinners for world leaders to munchies for the commander in chief, his family and guests.
as many as 2,000 guests per month are fed at the white house. mrs. bush has signaled her intent to do more entertaining than in the first term, when festivities were taboo after the terrorist attacks on sept. 11, 2001.
mrs. bush has been trying out finalists for the job, asking them to prepare test meals at special functions and private meals at the residence.
comerford has a bachelor's degree in food technology from the university of the philippines. she has worked at le ciel in vienna, austria and at restaurants in two washington hotels.
the head chef is responsible for designing and executing menus for state dinners, social events, holiday functions, receptions and official luncheons hosted by the president and first lady. the job pays around $80,000-$100,000 a year.
