Destination: Washington, DC


The Food Section travels to Washington, DC, this week for the inaugural edition of Moveable Feast, a new feature consisting of local food writing with a decidedly non-New York focus.

District of Columbia-born and based food writer Emily Kaiser has graciously agreed to guest-edit and provide a week’s worth of on-the-ground reports on all things gastronomical in the nation’s capital.

A former chef, Ms. Kaiser brings the perspective of the professional kitchen to her writing. One of her most recent articles, appearing in the New York Times, was on chefs who buck conventional culinary wisdom about how and when to use salt in cooking and “salt early if not often.” More of her articles can be found on her Web site.

While Ms. Kaiser takes the helm, Appetizers will continue to be updated daily. However, Agenda, the weekly listing of food events in New York City, will be on a one week hiatus, returning on June 2.
