White House Chef Salary?

The official chef of the White House is Cristeta Comerford, she previously was with Bush and the Obamas decided she could stay at the white house as the chef.
I was wondering what is her salary? She must have a higher salary than a chef from a quality restaurant in France I suppose. What is the White House Chef's salary?

The White House is not required to publicly release the chef's salary. From a 2005 story by the NY Times they quoted the salary range as 80,000 to 100,000.

"The pay, $80,000 to $100,000 a year with no overtime, for what is essentially a private family chef who occasionally has an opportunity to show off at a state dinner, is well below what top level chefs can earn on the outside."

But the salary may be more than that.

One chef at the White house is a pastry chef and makes nearly $120,000 a year in salary.
