D.C. chefs dish: D.C. area blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. Looks like we might be in for more wintry mix Thursday evening, but at least we got a slight warm-up today. I know it was a pain to get around, but if you had a moment to look around, the "icing" in the trees was quite nice. Check out the posts from some of our D.C. area bloggers who captured some great shots of the "icing" as well as a post on sushi etiquette and an unusual "Ladies Night."

A DC Birding Blog managed to get outside Tuesday and take some lovely shots of ice-covered trees and plants. More ice storms shots from Feast After Famine.

Ah yes, we’ve all heard of “Ladies Night” – but here’s an evening out for women with a twist. Fifth Street Hardware in Northwest Washington is hosting a DIY evening where women can get advice on home makeovers, see demos and yes, eat cupcakes, indulge in massages and snag a goody bag. The Triangle has the details.

The real dish. Best Bites blog offers this juicy post in which it asked local chefs who the most over-hyped and under-appreciated cooking talents are in the D.C. area. “For a chef without a restaurant, I’ve never seen someone get so much publicity,” comments one about Barton Seaver.

What could be better than a chocolate chip cookie? How about a secret chocolate chip cookie? Photos and a recipe from D.C. Ladies.

From Plight of the Pumpernickel – A lesson on proper sushi etiquette from Darren Lee Norris and Ari Kushimoto Norris, owners of Kushi Izakaya & Sushi. Yes, it IS okay to eat with your hands.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading. Have a suggestion for a great blog I need to add to my regular list? Post below or send me an e-mail at
