For Jacqueline Kennedy, entertaining at the White House became a way to showcase art and culture, in a chic American way; her only caveat was that it had to be the best. Her tastes and the way the entertainments were presented, were not only an imaginative response to her duties as the nation's first lady, but underscored American primacy in the jet age; we were no longer Northern Europe's country cousin, in short the country came of age. Full of great pictures of the food, the table settings and the fashions of the era, this book is a delight for the social historian, as well as the epicurean. Buy it!
