Taste of Dupont

Tonight we did an event called Taste of Dupont. It is similar to the Taste of DC but smaller, confined to the Dupont Circle neighborhood.

14 restaurants participated. Guests walked around to each of the different restaurants, tried what they were serving and then moved onto the next. Finally, they cast their vote for the Dupont Chef of the Year.

We served the ever famous liquid center ravioli. This one is a butternut squash filled ravioli served with a seared diver scallop, brown butter foam and maple syrup.

As I was in the process of making 200 ravioli (on a hand crank machine), I began to wonder why I chose this dish. It sure sounded good when I submitted it to the event promoters! In the end it was worth it, it all came together nicely. Maybe I’ll be the next…
Dupont Chef of the Year!
