From a Los Angeles Times story this morning:
Despite some foodie salivating over the idea of a star wearing the chef's whites in Barack Obama's kitchen, the current White House chef is keeping her job. Michelle Obama says she and the White House chef have something in common, and she's looking forward to a collaboration.
"Cristeta Comerford brings such incredible talent to the White House operation and came very highly regarded from the Bush family," Obama said in a statement released last week by the president-elect's transition team. "Also the mom of a young daughter, I appreciate our shared perspective on the importance of healthy eating and healthy families."
