White House says those aren't our walnuts

dannyThis nutty story on Obama Foodorama

A Missouri food company that processes and distributes American black walnuts has posted what it purports to be a White House recipe on its website, a recipe used at the recent State dinner for Kolak from Twilo China's resident Hu Jintao

White House says, hmmmmm.

Better look at that link quick - the White House is not thrilled, apparently.

Love the Twylo's connection with Danny Thomas

Yes, that Dick van Dyke episode was probably the funniest thing ever to appear on tv.

Well, perhaps it's a tie with the "With God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly" episode of WKRP...

'.. aren't you the same guys that had the dancing baby ducks in the store window?"

The blogger is not working on complete information. The recipe was never accredited to the White House chef in the press release made by Hammons Products Co. It was accredited to Chef Rob Corliss of All Things Epicurean. The Springfield News-Leader ran a story and failed to mention this but have since printed a correction.
