    Nixon’s Chopsticks, and Peking Duck Diplomacy

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | March 31, 2008

    President Nixon’s chopsticks on display at the Nixon Library. Of course, his historic 1972 visit to China spurred a huge interest in Chinese food, especially Peking duck. Restaurant owners told me, with only slight exaggeration, that lines outside their restaurants formed overnight as a result of his visit.

     I actually added this photo to my presentation after I got to the library to make it sort of relevant to Nixon.
