Former White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier spent over two decades sweetening the lives of five American presidents, from Jimmy Carter to Dubya, and has wowed dignitaries with inspired creations such as mint tea sorbet sculpted into the shape of a tea kettle. His new book, “All the Presidents’ Pastries: Twenty-Five Years in the White House,” not only dishes about the eating habits of our nation’s leaders, but also includes observations from someone who watched world events unfold from the nexus of American power. Tonight at 7, he’ll read from and sign his work at Olsson’s The Lansburgh, 418 7th St. NW. What’s his favorite dessert? According to the White House Web site, the Frenchman fancies good old apple pie — with ice cream when he’s feeling indulgent. Call 202/638-7610 or log onto www.olssons.com for further details.
