Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate: Close to Home

Team cake: 2 (Chef Anne Burrell & a dude whose name I can’t remember)

Team pie: 1 (Chef Duff)

Chef Anne Burrell name-checked Smith & Wollensky’s coconut cake, which makes me want to hit the downtown DC location to get a slice to go. Apparently steakhouses make decent cake, because the other one was the ridiculous 24-layer chocolate cake from Strip House. You can actually mail order the entire 5-pound behemoth to your house for $100 plus S&H here.

Meanwhile, in the pie corner, Chef Duff talked up the Baltimore Bomb at Dangerously Delicious. It’s a chess pie made layered with Berger cookies (vanilla cookies piled high with chocolate ganache icing), a Baltimore specialty. We’ve tried this pie before and can guarantee that it’ll make your fillings ache. If you’ve got a major sweet tooth, check it out at their H Street location, or follow @DCpietruck.
