Chef John Moeller is a member of an elite corps of chefs, those who have served in the White House preparing cuisine for presidents, first families and their guests, including visiting heads of state.
Chef to three first families, including President George H.W. Bush, President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush, Moeller joined the White House kitchen in 1992 as sous chef to Pierre Chambrin and later Walter Scheib, eventually acting as White House Chef in 2005.
Over the course of his career in the White House, he focused on creating unique, one-of-a-kind dishes that relied on fresh and flavorful ingredients.
He served in the White House from September 1992 until 2005 one of the longest-tenured chefs across three administrations. He helped create and prepare meals for the first families, for world leaders like Tony Blair and Nelson Mandela, for famous guests like Julia Child and Sophia Loren, and for holiday parties and trips to Camp David.
Chef Moeller has detailed his journey and White House experience in his book, Dining at the White House From the Presidents Table to Yours, published in September 2013. He runs State of Affairs Catering in his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
