MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Shumlin is scheduled to attend a White House dinner.

The dinner is being held in honor of French President Francois Hollande’s visit to the United States.

Items on the four-course menu will be dry-aged rib eye beef, American caviar and petite radish, baby carrot and lettuce salad. Wine served will be from California, Washington state and Virginia. Dessert is bittersweet chocolate malted cake. After dinner, guests will sample fudge made of Vermont maple syrup, shortbread cookies and cotton candy.

Nine-time Grammy award-winning songstress Mary J. Blige is set to perform for the approximately 350 guests.

The dinner is being hosted Tuesday evening in a tent on the South Lawn and is the first state dinner of President Barack Obama’s second term.
