Trouble With Toast

DC Food Blogger Potluck–the first of many! | March 19, 2008

Well, it’s official–the first-ever DC food blogger potluck was a huge success! It was so nice to combine the social aspect of blogging with tons of great grub. Seriously, these people can COOK!

My lovely, charming, hilarious, and ab-fab co-host–none other than Miss Lemmonex–has already posted a wonderful recap (complete with full attendee list), so I won’t waste too much time gushing over how amazing it was. I will say, however, that I was totally blown away by the diversity of the folks AND the food. I was also really impressed by how the conversation transitioned seamlessly from the virtues of Le Creuset cookware (I totally would have made off with Food Rockz Man’s awesome Dutch oven if I wasn’t so full, fat, and slow) to our various careers to the benefits of blogging non-anonymously to getting married just to register for new kitchen stuff.

But on to the pictures! Here are some of the delicious dishes we enjoyed…


My very own chocolate mint bars–they’re actually light! A recipe will be forthcoming.


EatFoo(d)’s tasty and creative pork belly plating (with carbonated oranges, homemade biscuits, cinnamon crumble, and raisin-yogurt sauce).


Kitchen Tango’s awesome chocolate cake–it’s gorgeous cut AND uncut!


Jacob’s ridiculous bar setup–the drinks were really inventive and tasted great.


Lemmonex’s Irish soda bread–carby goodness!


Spork and Knife’s beautiful amaretto cake. Somehow, I didn’t get a piece of this. D’oh!


DC Food Blog’s homemade shrimp and vegetarian dumplings–incredibly addictive.

Now that we’ve made “teh Interwebs” jealous of our foodie prowess, all I can say is–I cannot WAIT for the next event! Thanks again to everyone for coming out and for bringing their culinary A-games. Hooray DC food bloggers!



  1. Sputter and froth! I wish to be invited! I like food, and very, very occasionally I even blog about it. But just occasionally.

    Normally it’s about judging.

  2. Well, now that you have imbibed many beers with the organizers of the foodie funfest, maybe you can score an invite to the next one. It’s not as rowdy as Shamrockfest, but the tummy stuffed-ness provides the same sort of next-day shame. šŸ™‚

  3. I think I am finally not full. Thanks for being equally as fabulous…more even.
