Cristeta Comerford to be White House Chef

As you may have heard, the Obamas will be keeping White House Executive Chef Christeta Comerford. She has been Executive Chef at the White House since 2005 and is the first female and minority to hold the position. She has been working in the White House kitchen since 1995.
Chef 'Cris' Comerford was raised in the Phillipines. After culinary school, she trained in classic French cooking in Vienna, Austria.

"Cristeta Comerford brings such incredible talent to the White House operation and came very highly regarded from the Bush family," Michelle Obama said in a statement released by the transition team. "Also the mom of a young daughter, I appreciate our shared perspective on the importance of healthy eating and healthy families."
