Mitt Romney’s family recipes: It’s wife vs. mother

Will Lenore Romney's dish beat out Ann Romney’s? (Brady Dennis/The Washington Post)

Over at In the Loop, we’re pitting two dishes from the Romney family recipe box against one another. One, from the former Massachusetts governor’s mother, Lenore, was unearthed by a Loop reader in a 1960s-era church cookbook. The other is for a dish Ann Romney recently pinned to her Pinterest page.

So let the culinary battle begin between Lenore Romney’s Hamburger Stroganoff and Ann Romney’s healthful turkey burgers.

And who better to judge this battle royale than The Post’s resident food critic, the esteemed Tom Sietsema ?

We’ll reveal the results tomorrow, along with more about the discovery of the vintage Romney recipe. Before we do, we’re asking readers to weigh in on which dish they’d elect to eat. Cast your votes below.
