Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

Obviously, I'm no fashionista; I'm a foodie. And if you're reading this, you are too.

So while I did not care who designed Michelle Obama's dress, I did want to know what our new President ate at his Inaugural Luncheon.

The Official Inaugural Website has the menu, including a link to the recipes, should you want to replicate the lunch yourself. The dishes followed the theme of "A New Birth of Freedom," celebrating the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth, which means these are foods that Honest Abe himself would've reportedly enjoyed.

Here's the menu:

FIRST COURSE
Seafood Stew
paired with
Duckhorn Vineyards, 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

SECOND COURSE
A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck)
served with Sour Cherry Chutney and
Molasses Sweet Potatoes
paired with
Goldeneye, 2005 Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

THIRD COURSE
Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glacé
 paired with
 Korbel Natural "Special Inaugural Cuvée"
