Both are fans of still water, lightly sweetened coffee, and tea -- iced or hot. As well as simple meats, breads, cheeses and fruits, nothing too sweet or too dense.

He prefers well-aged single malt scotch and a good IPA. And believes vegetables are what food eats.

She sips a dry white wine or low sugar spirit -- such as vodka -- occasionally. (And rarely indulges in an icy cheerwine). Please note Her Excellency has several food sensitivities and begs your forgiveness in advance if she is unable to partake in your delicious creation. She is allergic to pork, cilantro, and coriander. And she believes fish are friends, not food.

If you are making things foodie or crafty they prefer that you create gifts for largess or gift baskets as there are so many amazing people they'll want to recognize.
