At Home: Kapnos Kolokithokeftedes

For my next Restaurant Recreations...At Home, try these zucchini fritters, or kolokithokeftedes, as a great appetizer for your Greek-inspired meal.  These fritters are a popular item from Kapnos and Zaytinya, and was recently made at a cooking class by Chef George Pagonis.  He was gracious enough to share the recipe with me, as I remarked these are one of my favorite vegetarian dishes.

Northern Greek Cooking Class with George Pagonis

I've been to the Hill Center DC before, and returned this time for the Northern Greek Cooking Class with Chef George Pagonis. Chef Pagonis is a recent cheftestant on Bravo's Season 12 of Top Chef. This class was advertised about two months before the show aired, but knowing that our area has produced some fantastic Top Chef alums, I grabbed a ticket to this event and asked fellow blogger, Lori - who is also a huge Top Chef fan - to join me. Naturally, she agreed.

The Partisan

From the meat-loving minds behind the Red Apron, the first and only butcher shop in the nation to use 100% Animal Welfare Approved pork, comes it's neighboring sit-down restaurant, The Partisan.  Tom Sietsema recently listed this restaurant in his Fall 2014 Dining Guide with special call out to the charcuterie list that features more than 30 choices, from blood sausage to wild boar pâté.  Closest Metro is Archives - Navy Memorial.
