Behind the Scenes

My. Happy. Place. I ate here
"My. Happy. Place. I ate here at the age of 11 never knowing what a big deal it was only knowing that my step mom grew up in Catalonia and shared with me the delicious magic of tapas. I begged for my parents to take me every time I was in DC because I was so purely taken with the flavors and craved them. The food memories that I’ve experienced here are too many to number and they are still bringing the fire 🔥! jaleobyjose"

🚨🚨Reporting live from these
"🚨🚨Reporting live from these chorizo and egg breakfast enchiladas- wish I took more pics of the Mexican brunch this weekend, but the entire handle of Bacardi in the mojitos said no. Not pictured: the entire handle of Bacardi (+elote guacamole deviled eggs with pickled red onions, fresh pico de gallo, and charred poblano and cilantro crema)! 🍴 • • • • • • • #sfeats"

Thinking about hosting weekly
"Thinking about hosting weekly brunches at my house and trying out new recipes and ideas 😉 This brunch was an ode to rosemary and ricotta: crostini with mushrooms, shallots, rosemary, ricotta, microgreens, and poached eggs; with ricotta pancakes topped with caramelized apples and rosemary maple syrup. Is it savory or is it sweet? 🤷🏼‍♀️ • • • • • • • #sweetandsavory"

Made a twist on a classic
"Made a twist on a classic French moules frites (mussels and fries)- and it was too good not to share the secret! Umami guaranteed 😋 #nomnomnom 🍴Cut potatoes into thin circles. Drizzle generously with olive oil, salt, and pepper and bake on 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Flip, turn the oven up to 425 degrees and bake for 10-15 more minutes. 🍴POUR YOURSELF A HUGE GLASS OF WINE! 🍴Slowly cook shallots and garlic in olive oil in a large deep pan. 🍴Add a nub of butter, a fresh rosemary sprig, cherry tomatoes, red chili flakes, and dry white wine (I used Pinot Grigio). 🍴 Cook for about 4-5 minutes to let the alcohol cook out. 🍴 Add fresh mussels and stir. Cover with a lid and let cook for 4-5 more minutes. 🍴 Add a splash of heavy cream to the pan, then add freshly chopped parsley right before serving. • • • • • • • #spoonuniversity"

Still eating through the
"Still eating through the mountain of hummus I made from a week ago 😍 Pro tip: garbanzo beans more than double in size when you soak them. 😂 Best homemade hummus I've ever made- with tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, za'atar, and fresh parsley. Can't forget the freshly baked pita bread! #nomnom • • • • • • • #beans"
