WHITE HOUSE EXECUTIVE CHEF, CRISTETA COMERFORD, SAYING:

"The culinary diplomacy is a great tool for chefs, because in our world, food unites. So in any table, in any gathering of eating and having communion together, we're able to exchange ideas, exchange stories and this is actually, for us as chefs, the best tool that we could ever use."

FRANCE'S AMBASSADOR FOR GASTRONOMY, GUILLAUME GOMEZ, SAYING:

"We head chefs of Elysee palace have to be ambassadors of French cuisine on the table of Britain's queen, of the American president. Of course, we think that our work has an influence at least on the ambience or over everything that could be negotiated during a visit. And our slogan in the 'Chefs des Chefs' club is that if politics divide people, good food on the table reunites, and so of course, we hope that we all have a role to play."
