Launched in 2004, DCFüd is an Online Magazine devoted to the food and food lovers of the Washington, DC area.
Jason is a food writer, editor, and judge. He is originally from the most culturally diverse county in theUS, where he grew up eating dozens of cuisines. He is culturally diverse in his own right, and learned how to cook at his Mom’s side as a kid. Jason tends to write about ethnic foods, bargains, and events.
A drink was named after him – the “flaming foodgeek” – habaneros, honey, triple sec, orange juice, vodka…and a prayer. 😉
Angie is a marketing enthusiast, and has been a food lover since the day she was born. At an early age she was brought up in the food industry, and taught to live life to the fullest and enjoy the many delicious foods that are available to us. She was raised in a Vietnamese-Taiwanese household and ate foods growing up that most kids turned their noses to and thought to be “weird,” including stewed duck’s tongue and cow stomach stew. Her grandmother owned a catering business back in Saigon, Vietnam. And her family ran a successful Peking-style Chinese restaurant in Richmond, VA. So to say the love of food is in her blood is only stating the obvious. She’ll try everything at least once, and isn’t afraid of a food challenge. From the words of one of her favorite executive chefs, Andrew Zimmern, “If it looks good, eat it.”
Lia is a Massachusetts girl, born and raised (hometown: Salem). She moved to the D.C. area in 2010, fell in love with it, and decided to stay. Lia lives in Arlington, but spends all her time (well, like 95% of it) in D.C. and know everything about the city. Her love of food was nurtured when I spent a summer watching Travel Channel, and became a passion thanks to Anthony Bourdain. You can usually find her at a great happy hour or fun brunch, and she loves international cuisine from small, locally owned restaurants. Besides food and cocktails, she is obsessed with makeup, and I would live in a Sephora if I could.
Michael is a DC native who picks his produce by smell as opposed to
look or feel, leading to much tastier dishes and also confused looks
from other customers. He started cooking at a young age, having
discovered that the easiest way to get what he wanted for dinner was
to cook it himself. Never shy about trying new things or making a
mess, 10-year-old Michael’s curried mac+cheese was fantastic; his
curried chicken Parmesan not so much.
He took a one-day lesson in being a restaurant critic from the
Washington Post’s Phyllis Richman in the 9th grade, and decided that
that sounded like a fun thing to do once in a while. Years later, he
joined the original lineup of DCFüd and has been doing it once in a
while ever since.
Watch Michael’s NBC4 Feature.
