Jimmy Cocktail is highly respected for his skills in the kitchen, with the smoker and on the grill. When he's feeling really saucy, he's not too bad with a guitar. He long ago learned that you do not have to spend a lot of money to enjoy really good wines and he also thinks that if food and wine are good, then adding music and making it a party must be better!
Lori GardnerDining out is my passion, and often times the culmination of hours of research. This blog reflects my journey as I try to keep up with my restaurant wish list for the DC area where I live, and in my travels. It's a struggle at times, but with the help of family and friends (and a celebrity chef here and there), I manage.

I am a 30 year old consultant by day and an avid foodie by night. My husband and I like nothing more than enjoying great eating and drinking experiences, whether it be a fantastic happy hour a fabulous tasting menu or creating a new dish from farmer's market fare. In short, we love to eat and drink here in DC and during our travels around the country and the world.
My name is Anne and I'm 27 years old. I'm currently living in D.C., taking prerequisites and applying to masters programs to become an R.D. I love running, ice cream, making people laugh, wine, being outdoors, and a hot mug of tea on a cold day.
Johnna Knows Good Food started as simply a way to share my recipes and restaurant reviews with friends. Now two scores and some months later, JKGF has grown into my outlet for all things food. I.m a work in progress as is JKGF (*Note to self: I will learn how to take professional pictures.). Though a Washington, DC based food blog, I keep the range of topics/restaurants/trends broad.
I'm a 26 year old female who loves to eat out because it's just easier! I love all kinds of foods and trying new dishes and cuisines. Since I've started blogging, I've attempted to cook more, so I'd love to share the recipes, as well as random events in my life.
I have an insatiable passion for food. It consumes my life in so many ways: cooking, learning, trying new cuisines, reading books and traveling the world in search of new culinary experiences. It is for this reason that I decided to change career paths and attend culinary school.
