Trouble With Toast

Calling All DC Food Bloggers! | February 6, 2008

In a former life, I was a “regular” DC blogger–I wrote about whatever tickled my fancy, and I frequently attended happy hours organized by various individuals in the community.  When my writing became unfocused and unfulfilling, I shut down my old site and made the move to food bloggery.  I really enjoy writing on this site, and I love that I’m learning a lot about all things culinary, but I do miss interacting with other like-minded bloggers and meeting wonderful new people.

During a recent chat with Lemmonex (frequent commenter and writer of the highly informative and entertaining Culinary Couture), we decided that it was time to organize a get-together for the DC food blogging community.  So, without further ado, we present to you…

“Blogger Buffet: A DC Foodie Funfest”


Okay, once you contain your excitement, here are the (somewhat limited at the moment) details: we would like to host a potluck where DC food bloggers can meet, greet, and eat!  We can share recipes, trade tips and tricks, and gossip over which local chef we’d most like to…um…eat with.  Yeah.

We were thinking early- to mid-March, and either of us would be happy to host the shindig (as long as attendance isn’t more than about 10–we have roommates and small apartments).  We can dole out course assignments (which will, of course, be flexible) once we’ve gauged interest.  So tell us your interest!  🙂

We think this could be really fun, so definitely let me know in the comments if you want in.  If you have a big, Metro-accessible house that you’d like to offer up, all the better!  We really hope you’ll join us for food and friendship.  Looking forward to hearing from everyone!

  1. Great idea . . . I’d love to participate. Are you thinking weekend or weeknight? I’ll be out of town on the first weekend in March and the second weekend of March is also looking a little busy for me . . . I’m taking a day-long food photography class on Saturday March 8 and have a friend who I haven’t seen in years visiting on the 9th. BUT I’m free on March the 15th and 16th. Keep me posted. Cheers!

  2. Ooh ooh! I don’t actually blog about food – but I am totally envious of your get-together. I love cooking and I lurk a few DC food blogs and I swear the foodie bloggers are nearly the only ones I’ve ever thought I’d want to meet in person, isn’t that funny?! Anyway, just wanted to take the opportunity to delurk and say again that I am totally jealous. 😉
