National Geographic Premieres: “Eat: The Story of Food”

National Geographic 1

My Twitter handle is @foodobsessed6.  My obsession primarily relates to dining, but I also have a growing interest in food on a much broader level, including the evolution and future of food.

Serengeti: A Really Good Kosher Steakhouse in Baltimore

Many kosher restaurants frustrate me, particularly those in the DC/Baltimore area.  They have a captive audience of diners, which may be why atmosphere, cleanliness, and quality of food are often not on par with non-kosher restaurants.  I frequently find myself saying “it’s good….for a kosher restaurant.” I wrote about this last year in an article published by Tablet Magazine called  “It’s […]

If the word vegan makes you go “meh,” it’s time to reconsider.  Vegan sometimes gets a bad rap.  The vegan brunch at Equinox can help sway a non-believer to gain an appreciation for the no meat, no fish, and no dairy side of cuisine. If you think you need a little something extra to persuade you, […]

As a new season of “Top Chef” premiered last week, numerous articles have appeared about current contestants.  DC’s own George Pagonis of Kapnos received a fair amount of press, and there was a collective sigh on my Twitter feed when he was sent home less than half way through the first episode. (I am hoping we will see […]
