Rita Jammet, of La Caravelle, has added this wonderful little tidbit:
Loved seeing that you included a recipe by René Verdon, the Kennedy White House chef.

Fred and Robert brought in René, trained him (at La Caravelle) for a few weeks to prepare the Kennedys favorite dishes. One of them was la Poularde Maison Blanche, with a champagne cream sauce!
