"An abstainer is a weak person who yields to the
temptation of denying himself a pleasure."
~~ Ambrose Bierce
There are no such weak
persons here! When you love the pleasure of food and wine, music, art, film, theater and travel, the one thing
that makes it even better is sharing it all with friends. For years friends
have come to me for advice on restaurants to try, food & wine pairings, gastronomic, cultural and social events. "Ask Donna ...she always knows what's going on!" As a former winemaker and current wine judge, I strive to demystify wine and encourage its enjoyment. My experiences
as a television reporter, a writer, photographer and wine educator all lead me
to create DC digest.
The dictionary defines "digest" as
1. Transitive verb -To process food in the body
into a form that can be absorbed and used
2. To think over so as to understand; absorb or
3. To organize into a systematic arrangement, usually
by summarizing or classifying.
The goal of DC digest is to explore the vast world of food, wine and fun in
and around Washington, DC, in Florida, and far beyond in our travels, digesting the salient information according
to the second and third meanings of the term so that you are free to relax and
enjoy the first one!
Keep in mind that if you're not having fun, you're probably not doing it right!
