Food in the 'Hood
Former InTowner Food Writer Joel Denker’s New Book Published
Published: November 28th, 2015
On December 3, 2015, Dupont Circle’s Glen’s Garden Market at 20th & S Streets, NW hosted a preview event of the wonderfully engaging and informative new book by Joel Denker, The Carrot Purple and Other Curious Stories of the Food We Eat. To learn more about this book, visit the author’s “Food Passages” blog.
After more than 25 years contributing his popular series to The InTowner, known in its early years at “The Ethnic Bazaar” and later as “Food in the ‘Hood,” Joel Denker decided devote his energies to not only researching & writing this new book as well as producing an expanded output of food writing. We have been honored that this well-known scholar of the history of food had chosen us to be the publisher of his highly readable and informative essays which always pointed our readers to neighborhood restaurants and purveyors of specialty foods in keeping with our mission of hyper-local reporting; many of those essays served as springboards for essays in this book.
