First Lady ~Michelle Obama~ was making the rounds in the Bay Area on Tuesday June 14th, first dining on a brunch prepared by Alice Waters while at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Berkeley. She then attended a luncheon prepared by chef Gustavo Romero Veytia of Credo in San Francisco’s Julia Morgan Ballroom; the luncheon was hosted by ballroom owners Clint and Janet Reilly. Chef Gustavo, after learning of Mrs. Obama’s favorite food, created a special order of tamales just for her, made from his family’s recipe.
