SAVEUR Magazine released April's list of books worth buying and we're beyond thrilled to be on the list! Laura Sant states, "The book confirms what I always knew in my heart to be true: Richmond is a great food town. Half catalogue of the city's restaurant scene, half recipe collection, 804ork is a beautifully designed look at the Virginia capital's culinary landscape…" Read her full review and see the rest of the collection here.
Nathan Cushing of RVANews was nice enough to interview Susan Howson and Carrie Walters about the process of working on 804ork for RVANews. The article, "Recipes from RVA restaurants featured in 804ork" discusses the behind the scenes challenges and goals for the project. Hop over to RVANews for the full piece.
In case you missed it, the interwebs have been buzzing about "The 30 places to eat in Virginia before you die." Of this selective list, six picks are from right here in Richmond. We're proud to say that 4 of those are featured in 804ork, and 1 more is listed as a resource in many recipes. Check out what they had to say about Aziza's, the Roosevelt, Kuba Kuba, Lemaire, and every chef's secret weapon, the Belmont Buchery.
It's official!!! We've been waiting to make this announcement for so long, so here's the real deal:
