A little while back I interviewed Lauren DeSantis, the host of the public access show Capital Cooking. And even though my write up wasn’t terribly nice, Lauren entertained my idea of meeting up to talk about featuring DC food bloggers on her show. I’m such a self-serving little bitch. I know.
Anyway, Lauren and I hung out at her and her husband’s gorgeous Penn Quarter apartment (she’s a lawyer by day) and chatted about her show, about food, about Alton Brown. And how in awe I was of her ability to cook, look cute, not cut herself and make conversation all while being filmed. But I’ll get back to that in a second. By the end of the night we came up with some fun ideas on how to incorporate the vibrant blogging scene on to her show.
Hence the FOOD BLOGGERS CHALLENGE. EEK! Lauren rounded up three other DC food writer/enthusiasts and we’re gonna fuck shit up on public access!
We wanted to really play up the idea of blogging and make it as interactive as possible so we need your help with Phase 1. We’re letting our combined blog audience pick which dish we’ll make on the show. The episode will air in winter so we’re going with a comfort food theme.
The Choices Lasagna / Chili / Chicken Potpie / Mac-n-Cheese
Everyone will create their interpretation of the dish and then be judged…I’ll let you know more about the judging in a bit…
And let’s start thinking about my on-air outfit! Britannia? Help! And yes, I know, I have many hours of practice just by looking at the photo above. (I’m wearing this band on my shirt.)
