Kathy White House

by Vincent Carmody

A young Listowel girl who happens to impress the world famous industrialist JP Morgan, with her cooking skills, while working in a hotel in Waterville, County Kerry, has her life transformed. Kathy Buckley travels to America to cook for Morgan and many other high powered families, before reaching the high point of her culinary career when she became the cook for three Presidents in the White House. This book is not just a biography of the amazing life of a Kerry emigrant in the U.S.A. It also includes recipes, menus and details of musicales held in the White House. Kathy’s story of how she befriended two Presidents and became a family friend gives a fascinating insight inside the first families in Washington.

Kings, Queens, world leaders and ambassadors were all entertained and well fed by Kathy. The book has a foreword, written by food connoisseur Laura Shapiro and Dr. Miriam Nyhan Grey gives a fascinating historical account of how young emigrants integrated in the U.S.A. Anyone interested in slow cooking and reverting to eating like our forefathers did, would do well to read this book.
