A Surprise Visit From The First Lady

I have the greatest admiration and love for first lady Michelle Obama.  In this video she surprises several local gardeners as part of her work with Let’s Move.

This is a must watch, delightful, inspiring and just plain adorable.  I love the reactions of people when she just walks in the door – priceless!  We have never had a first lady like this and I doubt we ever will again.

Let’s Move is the organization spear-headed by the first lady to encourage healthier eating and tackle the alarming rate of obesity in young people by educating them about good eating and exercise.

She could surprise me at one of our dinner parties any time she wanted to!  Hey Michelle all my food is from the locally sourced!   Swoon.  

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com

    I saw the video, and I love that she does this! Really important to show genuine support for a cause by interacting with the general population.
