Dinner with the Destinate crew and Founding Farmers in Tysons. We picked a great one. What else would you expect from a group of food writers!

And on to supper. A wonderful sweet-salty crostini with figs and proscuitto: lj011017dinner06

The. Best. Biscuits. EVER. And all the accoutrements were perfect. Three different hams, butter, chutney, jam. Heavenly butter.lj011017dinner07

My shrimp and grits. Very good! A little more other items in the dish than I expected, but it worked! Rich, sweet, creamy.lj011017dinner08

Annette’s scallop risotto. Not the most successful risotto in the world, but she loved it and that’s what matters!

Here’s what you get at Founding Farmers. Chicken and doughnuts. No kidding. It’s called Spicy Fried Chicken and Jefferson Donut. It comes with mac and cheese. And it’s fabulous.
