MetroCooking DC arrived at the Washington Convention Center for its annual show last weekend, smoking up its specialty food pavilion with some outstanding BBQ on its first day.
David Guas, chef and owner of Bayou Bakery, headlined the BBQ Bash, providing a cooking demonstration and displaying his own bakery’s buttermilk biscuits with a pork BBQ. We do recommend checking out those fantastic biscuits for yourself at Bayou Bakery’s Capitol Hill location on the grounds of Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital (901 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, DC).
