Kelly the Culinarian: A short note

A short note

Tonight I was at school until 9 p.m. While we had some fabulous speakers this evening, I'm also fabulously tired.

So, I'd like to encourage you to check out my story for the Medill News Service about the kinds of foods served at political events. Think filet mignon, champagne and southern-fried chicken. But for the '08 election cycle, advertising just how recyclable your plates and napkins are will be a big fad. How typical Washington ...

Also, this installment of Well Fed on the Town by yours truly is about an upcoming tasting event at the National Press Club that I think it totally worthwhile for foodies and the curious alike.

Kelly,
Really enlightening story about the food served at political events. We have yet to reach that stage in Malaysia.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. As a mom I cook constantly, but it's baking that I love. Have a great day!

Good writing in your article, Kelly. I read it with plenty of interest, muttering under my breath about trendiness and the need to really get real. It also struck me that if people are going to two or three events and eating at all them, that's a lot of food being swallowed. Hmm, makes you think about the smaller portions and the environmentally friendly thing again... in a more jaundiced light. Ah, call me an old cynic if you will :-)

Darn it - stop posting tempting yummy-sounding events in the DC-area... you're tempting me!

Very interesting article; never thought about what goes into the decisions of what to serve at such events. Sounds like they should have a lot of newly married women consulting ;)

Thanks for stopping by my place; I hope you find some chestnuts soon :)

It is a small world. I was reading your blog today and noticed your reference to your article on Well Fed... Now I know where I had recognized you, I used to write for Wine Sediments! But, unfortunately time restraints were upon me and I had to stop as I could not do that plus keep up with my blog. Hopefully someday I will get back to it. Good post!
Cheers Kelly!
