What do you feed a visiting monarch?

Most of us like to sample the local cuisine when we travel, particularly abroad.

When the crown is on the other head and, say, Queen Elizabeth II and her hubby, Prince Philip, visited the colonies last week, what were the served at the White House?

Here are the menu and wine selections they chose, according to the Office of the First Lady:

Spring Pea Soup with Fernleaf Lavender
Chive Pizzelle with American Caviar

Newton Chardonnay Unfiltered 2004
Dover Sole Almondine
Roasted Artichokes, Pequillo Peppers and Olives

Saddle of Spring Lamb
Chanterelle Sauce
Fricassee of Baby Vegetables

Peter Michael Les Pavots 2003

Arugula, Savannah Mustard and Mint Romaine
Champagne Dressing and Trio of Farmhouse Cheeses

Rose Blossoms
Schramsberg Brut Rosé 2004

Oh, the photo above? Haven't you ever heard of the Queen Mug?
