Little known fact, I used to blog about politics – mostly about feminism and gender issues. Eventually I decided it was more fun to blog about food and gardening, especially since politics is my day job and I like thinking about something else in my off time.
But, today, I think it’s time to do a little crossover. My friends at Smorgie.com asked me to come up a new Bite Book and challenge my readers to come up with their own. And I thought, let’s take this opportunity to highlight DC’s lady chefs, bartenders, and restaurateurs (restauranteuses?). I know I’ve got some faves, like Jamie Leeds and Chantal Tseng, but I bet there are a lot more than I don’t know about.
Go check out my Bite Book, then join Smorgie and make your own Bite Book celebrating women in the culinary world. Who am I missing? What female chefs, mixologists, pastry chefs, and restaurant owners do I really need to check out?
