As we kick off our 2018 season, proudly entering our fourth year in business there is a lot of fondly looking back, hand horizontally perched on the eyebrow ridge, thinking about how far we have come. I’d like to think I knew what we were doing in year one, and I’m sure I believed me….

Adventures in Indian Cooking

I have an insatiable curiosity to try as many different cuisines and variety of dishes during my lifetime as possible.

Ben’s Chili Bowl U Street | Carpe DC Food Tours Washington DC

We finally made it to Spring! Although the word feels a bit overdramatic given it was one of the warmest winters on record, and that mushy white slush last week was the only venture into a white winter we had all season. Never the less, the warm weather is upon us and that means the…

First we crawl, then we walk, then we march!

Carpe DC Food Tours Washington DC

One of the cool things about this march was it represented a lot of different points of view and covered a lot of issues. I thought I was going with my family to take a stand for women’s rights, which was true, but experiencing this march with my 8 month old made me realize that…
