i’ve been thinking a lot about desserts and the locales with which they are identified.
there are some obvious ones, like new york cheesecake, and some less obvious ones, like philadelphia’s tastykakes.
but there’s no one dessert that is identified with our nation’s capital. and quite frankly, we need one. the only food items associated with dc right now are half-smokes (literally) and pork (figuratively), both of which are items millions of people don’t eat.
as a result, we are desperate for a dessert to put the right dc taste in the mouths of Americans. my only caveat is that it’s something that tastes good in the humidity.
