Ed Morrissey flags a fascinating (if perhaps logical) aspect of President Obama's overseas trip:
A US "taster" tested the food being dished up to President Barack ObamaBarack ObamaTrump considers naming Yellen or Cohn to lead the Fed West Wing to empty out for August construction Ex-CIA chief: Trump’s Boy Scout speech felt like ‘third world authoritarian's youth rally’ MORE at a dinner in a French restaurant, a waiter said on Sunday.

"They have someone who tastes the dishes," said waiter Gabriel de Carvalho from the "La Fontaine de Mars" restaurant where Obama and his family turned up for dinner on Saturday night.

Is this common practice for a President? Well, Morrissey points out that President Bush did the same thing when visiting Buckingham palace.

Not a bad gig for the taster, since you'd expect the President is getting the finest French cuisine while visiting, no?
