Oooh, a foodie two-fer. Just ’cause I love you.
1) There’s a new pizza truck in town, ya’ll, launching in February. And it’s name is DC Slices. Much like Sauca, Curbside Cupcake and the bajillion food carts, DC Slices is just as it sounds – a truck drivin’ round and giving us pizza. (There is even a pizza oven in the truck, say what?) As with the rest of the food trucks, twitter is the easiest way to keep track of them.
2) Jane Black, one of my favorite food writers in the city (and I say this without ever having met her, which is high praise since it’s personal policy not to declare my undying love for people I haven’t actually met.), wrote a baller piece on farmers markets in the winter that I wish Donna or I had thought to write first. It’s FANTASTIC, and reminded me just how much is still able to be purchased at the markets. I’m now re-motivated to bundle up, get some fresh air, and support our local farmers. Veggilicious has a reasonably comprehensive listing of local markets and their dates.
