Cheers to Beer: Blue Duck Tavern

By Lauren Rosalanko


The Blue Duck Tavern welcomes their newest addition, Sophie Slesinger, a cheese specialist. Prior to working at The Blue Duck Tavern Slesinger worked as cheesemonger at GCDC in Washington, DC. Throughout the evening I was able to sample five of the seasonal cheeses offered this spring at The Blue Duck Tavern with three beer pairings. While having wine paired with cheese is more typical the three different beers perfectly complemented the cheese tastings, offering a new spin on alcohol and food pairings.

Easter recipe: Potato Gratin

Love these potatoes! This recipe was featured in the Capital Cooking Cookbook.
