Cookbook Love from DC to Austin

What better way than food to share our love for one another? My dear friend Emily of Wild and Crazy Pearl combined her love of food and photography to put together, along with writer Beth Kanter, Washington, DC Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Nation’s Capital.
It’s a beautiful book, and Emily spent much of 2012 photographing each and every image that appears in it (other than her head shot of course), at visits to Washington, DC restaurants either early in the morning, during lunch, and after work, while still managing to excel …
