We love hearing from you.
Bettina Stern, via e-mail:
love the first issue! It is so great to have such a smart publication in town. It also looks wonderful and your ultimate choice of Game Changers is terrific. I would encourage you to consider profiling Stacey Price of Think Local First. She is a real game changer as well!
Mark (last name unknown), via e-mail:
Thank you for publishing your magazine although you left out many more game changers in DC. Here’s my list:
- Roberto Donna for real Northern Italian.
- Francesco Ricchi for real Tuscan cooking.
- Yannick Cam for showing what real cooking is all about, what it costs, and that cuisine is made fresh every day requiring the same cooks to be at the stoves a.m. and p.m.
- Jeffrey Buben. If you can survive him, you’re mentally ready for front-line combat.
- Chef Pastan for dedication and commitment exhibited by Europe’s centuries old connection to agriculture.
- The Congress for developing a culture of lobbying and corruption which brings large amounts of money to DC. Can’t thank you enough.
Ditto to all the new think-tank’s [sic] for attracting intellectuals from all over who appreciate good food, no matter what philosophical persuasion. I guess what I am saying is, dig a little deeper, reach a little farther.
Response from the Editor:
We’ve noted your suggestions and perhaps you’ll see some of them pop up as stories in future issues!

An Excerpt from Spreading the Local Love by www.TwoBitesataTime.com
Of all of the varied paths these conversations wander down rarely do they land on one of my favorite subjects: the ever-growing pool of fabulously creative – and productive – people who call this city home. They are folks who have turned their passions into careers, who have opened brick-and-mortar shops, who have cultivated communities online, and who have welcomed strangers into their homes just to share their craft. They are the folks who bring the inspiration, style, and love to DC every day……edibleDC. Strictly speaking it isn’t a local small business. It is part of Edible Publications, which prints community based magazines across the US and Canada. But their focus is local, informed, and engaging. From features on game changers in the culinary community, to recipes from neighborhood restaurateurs and bar masters, to the men and women who grow the food and build the buildings in which you eat, edibleDC is a cover-to-cover celebration of the passion and commitment of food growers, sellers, crafters, and lovers in our region that provides quality reading while stirring a hearty appetite. And, joy of joys, the magazine has just launched its website so its tales and tips are no more than a click away.
Response from the Editor:
Thank you so much, Katherine, for sharing your thoughts on the local figures and businesses that make DC special for you. We are humbled and grateful to be included in such good company. One small note, edibleDC is, in fact, an independent, locally owned small business. Edible Communities is a network of decentralized publications that we are fortunate to be a part of. We share a common mission of celebrating our food communities, but each magazine is locally owned and operated, and each has a distinct, unique personality that is deeply rooted in its specific time and place.
