Yesterday I had the pleasure of cooking with Daniel Giusti (chef at 1789 Restaurant in Georgetown). Not only is he an excellent chef, but he is really funny and a natural on camera. Dan grew up in New Jersey but went to high school in DC and recently moved back here from working at a prestigious restaurant in Las Vegas. We ended up making each dish a friendly competition with each other to see whose plate looked better. He claims to have won each round, but I think I hung in there pretty well. Round 1: Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon Salad; Round 2: Seared Maine Scallops; Round 3: Pan Seared Black Cod. Dan had excellent presentation skills and tremendous knowledge of all of the food that we prepared. Thank you to Dan and 1789 for being part of the show! Also, thank you to my wonderful crew, David Crosson, Mary Diaz and Corey Then for all of your hard work and patience. Tune in soon to watch us throw down....
Make sure to stop in to enjoy all of the delicious dishes.
