Remember when we were all complaining about how long and wet the summer had been? Now it's the time of year where we can all safely retreat indoors and stay cozy. When binging on Netflix gets old, here are four D.C. recipes to keep your stomach happy as the temperature drops.
1. Make Supra's khachapuri, "the Georgian cheesy bread of your dreams"
Earlier this year we chatted with the team at Supra to get the scoop on how to make their legendary khachapuri. The dish is a little time consuming, meaning it's a great way to spend a rainy weekend day, and you'll be rewarded with an unbelievably delicious bread boat of melty cheese that tastes like a bite of heaven.
2. Whip up some hot cocktails from D.C.'s best bartenders
We know it's hard to abandon a good happy hour, but sometimes you just want to stay inside. Fortunately, a few D.C. bartenders have clued us in on how to make some warming cocktails at home, including the classic hot toddy and beyond.
3. Master Ocean Prime's famous Warm Butter Cake
Baking can be finicky, but Ocean Prime's Warm Butter Cake is so spectacularly satisfying, you'll actually want to follow the instructions to a tee. Although you may not want to even try to calculate how many calories it has (really, just don't do that to yourself), it's a dessert that will have everyone raving about your culinary skills.
4. Serve up Chef Tim Ma's signature coconut risotto scallops
Chef Tim Ma of Kyirisan considers his coconut risotto scallops his signature dish. Topped with a not-super-sweet Thai Basil ice cream, this may not seem like the typical cold-weather dish, but the end result is creamy, warm and feels like a fancy treat.
