  1. Just an fyi, I wrote this up for BYT, but a new french-inspired place is opening on 9th Street. Here's a first look. "Brought to us by Phil Rodriguez and Joey Belcher, of Sticky Rice on H Street, and Mick Mier and Joe Steger the design team responsible for Science Club, Napoleon and Sesto Senso, 1905 will offer French-inspired bistro fare. They hope 1905 will be a cozy addition to the neighborhood. The kind of place you want to eat, hang out, drink some wine, then come back the next night and do it again."
  2. It's not a real South American barbeque until you have kids cleaning out intestines with a garden hose before they get seasoned and grilled. Or was that just my childhood?
  3. The roasted cuban big has to have tender meat and a very crisp skin. Most pig roasts I've been to are just a cinderblock oven built over a driveway with the pig flattened inside of heavy duty metal mesh. Similar to this: http://cuban-christmas.com/pigroast.html. I want to buy a Caja China, but my basement apartment in Shaw might not work. Although I could chain it up out back with the grill and the patio furniture.
  4. I'm watching "Throwdown" (which is terrible) but realize The Caja China solves my problem of wanting to do a Cuban pig roast for my boyfriend's birthday. Having lived in Miami, I love a pig roast, but don't think my landlord wants me to dig a hole or build a cinderblock oven. Does anyone have a Caja China that they may want to rent? Or know of such a thing?
  5. Hi, thanks for the welcome and the permission. I'm a food blogger who also happens to do publicity for National Geographic. I've been a longtime reader of donrockwell.com and thought this was as good a time as any to finally make a post. As NGS only hosts 2-3 food or wine events a year, I'll probably spend more of my time discussing my personal endeavors. Regardless, I've been to a cheese event at National Geographic which Josh spoke at. I really enjoyed his speaking, and definitely enjoyed the eating and drinking.
  6. National Geographic Live! presents Joshua Wesson, well-known wine consultant and co-founder and wine director of Best Cellars, in a return engagement to celebrate the Wines of France. Recognized early in his career as “Best French Wine Sommelier” in the United States and honored in an international competition in France as one of the top five sommeliers in the world, Wesson has gone on to become a leading authority on the pairing of food and wine, known for his provocative combinations. He is the author of the award-winning book, “Red Wine with Fish: The New Art of Matching Wine with Food.” He writes for numerous magazines, is a regular contributor to NPR’s “The Splendid Table,” and has been a guest on “The Today Show” and “Good Morning America.” Awarded the prestigious Ambassador’s Award from the European Wine Council in 2003 for his knowledge of wine and his educational efforts, Wesson presents at numerous wine and food events, and is a frequent speaker at the Oscars of the food world, the renowned Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. In an evening of Wines of France, Wesson will take the audience on an entertaining gastronomic tour through the French countryside to sample his personally selected line-up of great French wines paired with French cheeses and other accompaniments. This event is co-sponsored by Best Cellars. National Geographic Dining Hall National Geographic Society 1600 M Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. TICKETS: $70 for members, $80 for non-members.
