Washington’s various Winter Restaurant Weeks begin on Friday, 10 January 2018, and run nonstop through 4 February 2018—I’ve already started to make reservations—so I won’t be spending much time in the kitchen during the next month.
I’m looking forward to launching the 2018 Cookery Project by mid-February.
