The city of New Rochelle, N.Y., will soon play host to the wedding of MSNBC host Alex Wagner and White House special advisor/chef Sam Kass, Vogue Magazine’s official political “It-Couple.” And according to Politico, President Barack Obama will be in attendance.
Obama first hired Kass in 2008 as his family’s personal chef, eventually bringing him to the White House and tapping him as an advisor for nutrition policy and the executive director for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Insiders say that the president considers Kass as family, and that the two have a long-standing golf/basketball/every-sport-ever rivalry.
The New Rochelle Talk of the Sound, which broke the news of the Obamas’ visit, added that he would also attend two fundraising dinners, tickets to which cost $32,000 each.
The wedding itself will take place at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a renowned restaurant/farm run by Dan Barber and a favorite of the Obamas. If you are a follower of celebrity chef culture, this choice of wedding venue is not a surprise.
