Wha'cha fixin' for supper Billy?

What does the world's richest man serve for dinner to the President of China? He serves them food with a Walla Walla flair, of course. This evening, Chinese President Hu Jintao and his wife, Madame Liu Yonqing, will dine at the Washington state home of Bill and Melinda Gates. Their menu will be:

First Course
Smoked guinea fowl salad with hazelnuts, spring radishes and Granny Smith apples.

Entree (three choices offered)
Fillet of beef with Walla Walla onions, local asparagus, celeriac puree and chervil glace'.

Alaskan halibut and spot prawns with spring vegetables, fingerling potatoes and a smoked tomato-infused olive oil.

An understated, but well appointed vegetarian plate.

Rhubarb brown butter almond cake

2002 Leonetti Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
2003 Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay - Canoe Ridge Estate

Governor Christine Gregoire will officially host the dinner and no...this dinner will not be paid by the tax payers.
