DC's Diverse Cuisine

Episode: CCETS-207H

People from nearly every country make their home in Washington, D.C., and they don't keep their food traditions locked inside the gates of the embassies. A mile past the White House is an old neighborhood that's become the new capital of the Washington food scene -- 14th Street Northwest. At Estadio, Chuck learns the secret to making the perfect tortilla Espanola, a dish that chef Haidar Karoum went to the far corners of Spain to learn. At The Pig, chef Robert Cain blends American farm-to-table philosophy with European technique to prepare barbecued pigtails. Chuck visits Pearl Dive Oyster Palace where he samples the saltiest oyster around along with the best fried chicken in D.C., then stops by Andy Shallal's Busboys and Poets, a cafe named for D.C.'s most famous busboy, poet Langston Hughes.
