The crowded event featured a pumpkin 'food fight' with creative use of pumpkin in dishes ranging from hummus to soup!
Taste of Georgetown took over Wisconsin Avenue south of M Street Saturday. The crowded event showcased the best of what Georgetown restaurants have to offer.
Several restaurants participated in the Pumpkin Food Fight, judged by:
- Tim Carman, Washington Post
- Amanda McClements, Metrocurean
- Shaun Courtney, Georgetown Patch
The judges voted that Thunder Burger Chef Ryan Fichter's pumpkin hummus on grilled bread with Jamón Serrano was the best overall pumpkin dish.
Mie N Yu's Chef RL Boyd was a runner up, wining most creative for his Spicy Pumpkin-Coconut Soup with 48 Hour Duck Confit and Pepitas.
Finally the "Best Use of Pumpkin" went to Filomena's excellent Pumpkin Cheesecake.
