White House chef Cristeta Comerford did the cooking at last year’s G-20 Financial Summit, but this year it’ll be in London at 10 Downing; we’re told the Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver, will do the honors, along with apprentices from Fifteen London, his nonprofit restaurant that hires and trains young people from troubled backgrounds. Oliver is a great one to promote British food (especially pork, PETA be damned) and, well, it probably wasn’t the time for Heston Blumenthal. Granted, the illnesses at the Fat Duck seemingly weren’t caused by food, but this way we can be doubly sure Barack won’t be pulling a George H.W. Bush into the prime minister’s lap.
