Hello, my name is Jenna Golden.

I adore food. For as long as I can remember food has been a central part of my life and most of my major decisions revolve around where I am eating my next meal. Washington’s food scene has changed dramatically over the past few years and we now have many gems that can hold their own to some of the best restaurants in the world. It’s an exciting time to live in the nation’s capital as the culinary scene is expanding daily.

I love exploring the D.C. food scene and normally make it to new restaurants within the first week of their opening. I also love to travel so I try to infuse recommendations from other locations as often as possible. I am really passionate about good food experiences and I love to share my excitement with others. Thanks for coming along on the ride with me!

Favorite Foods: Pasta, pizza, cheese, lobster rolls drenched in butter, sole meunière, brisket, and anything coffee flavored.

Favorite Drinks: I love light-bodied and easy drinking red wines: Pinot Noir, Gamay (Crus Beaujolais s’il vous plaît), and Frappato from Sicily are a few of my favorites. For something a bit bolder I love Rhone varietals such as a Grenache, Syrah or Carignane. I love dry white wines with citrus, acidity, minerality and some zing: Sancerre, Chablis, and Grüner are some of my regular picks. I also love rosé all day, especially if it's a light-bodied and dry rosé from Provence.

Favorite D.C. Restaurants: Le DiplomateThe Red Hen, MaydanGhibellina, Elle, Tail Up Goat, San Lorenzo, All Purpose and St. Anselm.

The Best Thing I Ever Ate: The pear and cheese ravioli at Coquinarius and Trattoria 4 Leoni in Florence, Italy. It’s the most divine combination. I also regularly dream about the beef bourguignon from Chez Josephine Dumonet in Paris.

Favorite Travel Destination: Paris and African safari
