(Undated) -- Some central Pennsylvanians could have the chance to get a taste of what it's like to eat at the White House. Walter Scheib, who served as White House Chef during the administrations of former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, is scheduled to host a dinner at the upcoming Gettysburg Festival in Adams County. Scheib says the event at the Wyndham Garden Hotel will recreate a typical family meal at the White House. "A four-course menu is the format of a state dinner, but the actual items we're going to be serving that evening are not from a state dinner. They're very much from behind the curtain, if you will, like White House private dining," he says. "So, folks will get to try some of the food that was served at both the Clinton and Bush White Houses." Scheib is also expected to share stories and answer questions about his time in the White House. Tickets for the dinner are $100 each and can be purchased through the festival's website.
