“Let Them Eat Chocolate Malt Devil’s Food Layer Cake with Pear and Almond Brittle”

UAW President Bob King sat down to dinner with Ford’s CEO, Alan Mulally at the White House, where President Obama feted the president of South Korea.

They dined on butternut squash bisque, honey-poached cranberries, pumpkin-seed pralines, Virginia cured ham and crPme fraiche – that was the first course! Second course was a fall harvest salad on daikon sheets. Then came the main course: orange-ginger fondue, sauteed kale, roasted kaboche squash and Texas waygu beef. Dessert was that to-die-for cake! Undoubtedly they clinked glasses with some outrageously expensive bubbly in toasts to their partnership – and the newly passed free-trade agreement with South Korea!

Gorging all that food, they must have suffered a little indigestion watching no-votes come in at Ford!
