At a White House rich in coffee lore, no word on president’s preference

It turns out that the Obama White House makes it nearly impossible to find the source of its coffee and how it is prepared.

//c.o0bg.com/rf/image_90x90/Boston/2011-2020/2014/09/15/BostonGlobe.com/Lifestyle/Images/photo.jpg Cooking tip from food editor Sheryl Julian

Instead of starting with flour and water to make your own crackers, start with big squares of whole-wheat lavash bread (available at many supermarkets, often next to pita). With kitchen shears, cut rectangles from the large flat lavash, line them on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil, sprinkle sparingly with salt, and bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.
