Martha Stewart Visits Leesburg
Martha Stewart was visiting the Washington, D.C. area this past weekend. She spent some time in a local Leesburg CostCo where she was signing copies of her newest cookbook, Martha’s American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation’s Most Treasured Dishes, from Coast to Coast. Of the nearly 400-pages of American cuisine, Martha said her favorite recipe was the Mile-High Apple Pie. Of course we had to asked Martha what was her favorite Costco product (besides her book) and she did not hesitate to mention the Dom Perignon. She certainly had many reasons to celebrate with her favorite Champagne as she signed about 800 cookbooks in the two hour time she allotted for her book signing.
After her book signing marathon, Martha headed over to The Wine Kitchen to checkout the local Leesburg eclectic dining charm before heading to the White House for the Corespondents dinner.
While enjoying the Wine Kitchen, Martha and her staff ordered crabcakes, pepper seared shrimp with thai spiced cucumbers, spanish salads with serrano and warm manchego, ricotta skillet cornbread with honey butter, local spinach salads with wine-battered fried red grapes and of course, the bourbon caramel torts ball (pictured below).
