Thanks to everyone who came out to our Nosh Mob at Yin Yankee in Bethesda. Executive chef and “gastronaut” Jerry Trice gave a fascinating discussion about the history of sushi and how he and his staff prepare their signature dishes.

Raters enjoyed delicious samplings of summer gazpacho, rodan roll, and kafir-kissed cheesecake spring roll. Jerry also explained that many fruits can also be used to make gazpacho, including watermelon. As the heat climbs, that’s good to know.

Congratulations to Rater Samantha Yarbrough, who won a free $200 meal at Yin Yankee! We’ll have another Nosh Mob soon, and remember that every time you rate, you are entered into a drawing for a free meal at the restaurant of your choice.

Bon appétit!
