Ike in an Apron: The President Who Cooked
January 30, 2017
My family were never friends of Ike; we were Adlai people all the way. Still, from where we now sit, the man looks like a saint. Turns out he did more than issue a warning about the military-industrial complex; in a time when real men wore no aprons, Ike did all the family cooking. He’s looking better all the time!
This is from Ike The Cook. I found a copy on my bookshelf, but if you want one, you can find it here.
Here’s Ike and Mamie on their wedding day – a surprising picture since you’re used to seeing them only as grandparents. Who knew they were both so beautiful!
Here are a few of Ike’s favorite recipes:
And because I can’t resist, here’s Ike in his apron.

Cool pictures. Who would’ve thought? Wonder what other presidents, statesmen, and big politicians were cooks.
It is always a pleasure to read your articles, books, and blogs. Love the photos and, unknown, information about President Eisenhower. You have definitely encouraged me to photograph even more of my food!
