The White House released the Thanksgiving menu enjoyed by President Joe Biden on Thursday, who spent the holiday at a compound in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
The president and his immediate family, including first lady Jill Biden, son Hunter Biden, and daughter Ashley Biden, were treated to a thyme-roasted turkey, with sherry gravy, classic stuffing, cranberry relish, sweet potatoes, shrimp cocktails, seared scallops, and roasted root vegetables, according to the White House.

Hunter Biden’s wife Melissa and Biden’s grandson Beau Biden were also in attendance.
“This Thanksgiving, as homes across America fill with laughter, favorite family foods, and the joy of friends and relatives reuniting, we give thanks for everything that is good in our lives and reflect on the many blessings of our Nation,” Biden said in a Thanksgiving day proclamation. “We are grateful for our family and friends and for all of our fellow Americans, even those whom we may never meet but rely upon nonetheless.”
The Bidens also enjoyed pumpkin, apple, and coconut cream pies, and the president’s favorite ice cream: chocolate chip. The two turkeys pardoned by Biden earlier this week were aptly named Chocolate and Chip, after the ice cream flavor.
The president spent the rest of the holiday talking to military service members, delivering pies to a local fire department, and calling into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
“I want to say thanks to the firefighters, the police officers, first responders. They never take a break,” Biden said during the call.
The holiday marked the end of a busy week at the White House as it officially transitions into the Christmas season. The White House Christmas tree was delivered Monday and received by Jill Biden. The 18-foot-tall Concolor fir was grown on a farm in Pennsylvania and will be placed in the Blue Room of the White House.
