Filipina in the White House
Yes, its true. Cristeta Comerford is the White House's Executive Chef. The first woman to be selected for the post, and also the first of Filipino descent. She was appointed to the position by Laura Bush in 2005 and asked to continue by First Lady Michelle Obama for 2009. Michelle Obama stated, "Also the mom of a young daughter, I appreciate our shared perspective on the importance of healthy eating and healthy families."
