Lobster, beef and shrimp on Donald Trump's post-inauguration menu

Donald Trump will dine on Maine lobster, Virginia beef and shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico just after taking office on Friday.

Mr Trump and vice president-elect Mike Pence will attend the traditional inaugural lunch in the Capitol shortly after their swearing-in.

They will be joined by their families, congressional leadership, members of the Supreme Court and their future Cabinet secretaries.

According to a menu released by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, they will enjoy a three-course meal of lobster and shrimp with a saffron sauce and peanut crumble, a second course of beef with dark chocolate, juniper jus and potato gratin, and a chocolate souffle and cherry vanilla ice cream.

The courses will be served with California wines.
