To Do: Former Kennedy Family Chef Neil Connolly Reads at Olsson’s

Another presidential chef tell-all? Not quite. Chef Neil Connolly came around long after Rene Verdon and Camelot, spending 12 years in the ‘80s and early ‘90s as the Kennedy family’s personal chef in Hyannisport. He’s just released In the Kennedy Kitchen, a nostalgic new cookbook full of family memories, photos, and recipes. And while you won’t find any tawdry dish (the book was vetted by Senator Ted), you will find JFK, Jr.’s favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and plenty of uses for lobster.

Connolly talks about the book Monday night at Olsson's Crystal City (2200 Crystal Dr., Arlington; 703-413-8121; at 7 PM. Free.
