As President Biden and first lady Jill Biden welcome South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife, first lady Kim Keon Hee, the White House staff is preparing for a special evening April 26, when the Bidens will hold a state dinner to honor their guests.
For more than a century, American presidents have put diplomacy on the menu at these formal dinners. At this one, Korean American chef Edward Lee, a member of the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Culinary Partnership, will take over the kitchen and create classic American dishes with a Korean twist.
