Gifts presented by First Lady Michelle Obama on the occasion of the 65th Anniversary of the United Nations General Assembly
September 24, 2010
"A special recipe of pickled, hand-picked ingredients from the White House Kitchen Garden, including sun gold tomatoes, okra, cucumbers, chocolate bell peppers, carrots, lemon verbena, and fresh herbs are presented in jars with the First Lady's signature. The jars are topped with original artwork done by California artists, Michael Cronan and Karin Hibma, who were inspired by a photo of Mrs. Obama tending to the garden with children and a wheelbarrow."
"...to work and collaborate on this project was indeed a pleasure and a privilege." – Michael Patrick Cronan
