Food.Fun.Stuff: Internationally (Well, Locally…) Known!

[ 5 ] March 6, 2010 |

Superstar!! Johnna Knows Good Food is making waves, headlines and all the rest. We have been away for awhile but we have been Tweeting (*Follow us @jknowsgoodfood) along the way about anything new and exciting we have heard about in the DMV and beyond. While we have been away, this time has not been in vain…we have been working hard on material for various publications. Two of these publications made their debut this week and we are absolutely elated *smiles*. Check it:

>>>The Runcible Spoon– When The Grand International approached me about writing for the new “Zine” to hit the DC streets, we began searching through every recipe, rant and rave for the perfect addition to the collaborative effort. We came together and decided my “Etiquette Tuesday” posts fit into the theme of the DC quarterly publication. Alongside recipes of salsa (*courtesy Mango & Tomato), green waffles (*courtesy The Daily Breakfast) and quick desserts (*courtesy Pie v. Cake), our Etiquette Tuesday on Dinner Reservations made the cut. Check out one of the coolest, FREE magazines here that we have seen in awhile specificially catered to the District (*and we’re not just saying that because we are a Superstar writer now…;-).

The Where: You can find the Zine in the following neighborhoods-U Street; 14th and P neighborhood; Dupont Circle; Adams Morgan

>>>The Bacon Cookbook– Bacon is one of our favorite delicacies (*Ok, we know its politically incorrect to call it a delicacy but it makes us immensely happy when we smell/taste/see it sizzling on a plate). It was no question but one when we were approached about contributing to the Bacon Cookbook and that was: What shall we concoct?? All we could think of was chocolate covered bacon. Yum. That’s where the idea of a Bailey’s infused cocktail began with chocolate covered bacon. The cookbook is complete, the bacon is chocolate covered and you can get a copy of the fruits of our labor here. Big thanks to Bacon Freak for a fun and delicious collaboration…bacon is what’s for dinner.
