The Presidential Culinary Museum

Inside the Presidents' Cabinet appears on television and stages, worldwide, showcasing the foods, menus, and often mesmerizing moments in history associated with food and American Presidents. The unique interpretation of the items is led by an actual, former White House Military Chef who served in combat zones and wars for 21 years and the White House Military Office. Hand-picked from over 7,000 United States Navy Chefs, Martin Mongiello and his Chef-wife, Stormy Mongiello curates the Presidential Culinary Museum and lead the show. Of interesting note to historians, President Washington enjoyed meeting with his advisors near cabinets, in the kitchen. The term "cabinet" comes from the word "cabinetto," or "Cabine," which actually means "a small, private room." A good place to discuss important business without being interrupted. The first use of the term is attributed to James Madison, who described the meetings as “the president’s cabinet.” But President Washington was the first to begin the meetings himself with trusted advisors and he enjoyed talking in the kitchen, surrounded by cabinets!. Andrew Jackson was the 7th American President. One of the important events during his presidency was his use of unofficial advisors referred to by his enemies as the "Kitchen Cabinet".
