Cool Pics from the Kojo Nnamdi Show in Today’s Post

There was a Washington Post photographer in the studio during my recent appearance on the Kojo Nnamdi show to illustrate a piece in today’s food section about Kojo’s James Beard Award-winning Wednesday food segment.

I had already planned to bring some of my pickles along for Kojo to sample. But when I heard a photographer would be on hand, I thought I’d add a little catering flourish–plates of zucchini carpaccio and an hors d’oeuvres constructed of zucchini slices topped with goat cheese and our favorite green tomato chutney.

The result is captured in a slide show attached to today’s story by Tim Carman (himself nominated for a Beard award for the second year running.) You can read the story here, and view the slides here.

If you have a tree killer edition of the Post, look at the bottom of the front page. There’s a picture of Kojo holding a jar of my pickles.

Can I just say, Kojo loved my version of sweet pickled zucchini that was named “Best D.C. Grown Food Product” at last year’s first-ever D.C. State Fair.

    Congratulations, Ed! Both you and the food look fantastic! And Lane must have been happy you weren’t wearing one of your beloved Hawaiian shirts on this visit to Kojo. 🙂 Love to you all- d.

    Dana, she was even happier I wasn’t wearing the corduroys she hates so much.

    You know, one solution would be to send her out to buy you a whole new wardrobe. My SIL has always called me the Queen of Tacky and her bro, my hubs, does have better taste in clothes than I do….. 😉 But if you do this Lane has to foot the bill, as well.
