Michael Tusk is cooking a private dinner for Barack Obama next Thursday for a fundraiser, and you are not invited. Sorry. But there are lots of fun details to share. Tusk has put together a very special menu that showcases his relationships with local farmers at Marin Roots Farm, Straus, Full Belly and a lot of other recognizable names. He's an open fan of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move program, and he says the meal he's cooking will fall in line with her standards. Take a look at all the fancy courses after the hop. It should be a nice lead into Obama's subsequent speech and a reception with Chris Cornell crooning away.
