|The Queen Bee Cocktail: Belvedere vodka, yuzu, elderflower syrup, and honey water .. mmmm|
I cannot believe that in such a short time I have eaten so much food and had so many cocktails:
|Market Flatbread Pizza at B & O American Brasserie: smoked ricotta, potatoes, peas, and a fried egg|
|The Margarita Goes Upscale: the Oaxaca at Baltimore's Grand Cru|
|Watching a master pipe the perfect macs|
|The results of his labors!|
|A bronzini from Salt River Lobster Company|
|Pow Wow Participants|
|Frybread, Three Ways|
|Lumbee frybread (l) & Lumbee taco (r)|
I've also learned - and shared - some really cool recipes from local chefs, like Baltimore peach cake and a gourmet peanut butter cup. And there's plenty more where that came from ... I just have to make sure to get on that treadmill every day. Seriously. Hopefully now you'll understand why I haven't been stopping by all of your lovely blogs as much as I'd like - but I am catching up, slowly but surely.
And if any of you happen to be in the D.C. area, I'm judging an Iron-Chef style cooking competition for the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian's Living Earth Festival on Sunday, August 8 at 3 pm. You can find all the info here. Come on out if you can - I'd love to meet some of my bloggy friends in person!
