A Food52 Potluck in D.C.

May 24, 2011 • 35 Comments

We cook, therefore we potluck. Last weekend, jestei, aka Jenny's in the Kitchen, welcomed the D.C. metro area food52ers into her house in Tenleytown for some serious brunch-time potlucking. While some members of the group have been cooking, canning and sipping together for quite some time, it was the first time Jenny met the majority of the group, and everyone made new buds. Aspic! Lamb galore! The only downside was that Jenny could have used a few more bottles of prosecco -- we like to drink at brunch in D.C. and the rosemary lemon sparklers were a hit. The D.C. group's next outing involves rhubarb. Stay tuned. - Jenny

This makes me want to plan my next trip to DC to coincide with the next potluck! I've been wondering -- any food52ers in the metro Detroit area?

I'm an Arlington, VA dweller!!! Love to join you sometime! Just made a strawberry rhubarb tart - a version of the Queen of Baking Perfection: Rose Levy Beranbaum. Pretty divine.

I'm positive there are no Food52ers in Indian Wells, but I hope we have one in Los Angeles. I need a potluck! This makes me green with envy!

I love how food52 is redefining the social landscape of food. It is all about sharing.....and what an amazing way to suss out that KEY. Someday I'll bring together a group of food52ers in Nigeria........I hope (when I move back). Till then, I'll enjoy all the inspiration.
