Presidential feast for Northwich care home on Thanksgiving

president elect bidden ex president obama

A CHEF who cooked for both President-elect Joe Biden and previous president Barack Obama is preparing a Thanksgiving feast for care home residents.

Sharon Johnson, 52, was manager at Maggiano’s restaurant in Washington DC before she returned from the USA to her native North-West.

Now the head chef at Redwalls Nursing Home, in Sandiway, near Northwich, she has this week been busy with residents preparing food for the American celebration on Thursday (November 26).

Ms Johnson said: "Seeing the television reports about Joe Biden’s election victory brought back memories of his visits to my restaurant in the autumn of 2016.

"He came in and sat in the main dining room with his family.

"I had to move him to a private area because he was being harassed by the general public.

"He had an Italian family style meal consisting of salad, lasagne, Bolognese and chicken parmesan.

"Because his family had been disturbed I gave him a mini sampler dessert on the house with New York cheese cake, Tiramisu and apple crostata.

"He was very appreciative of the service and said the food was ‘awesome’."
