Sarah Lipman is a food writer for Borderstan.
What’s the best resto in DC? Why?
Lipman: Vidalia: southern-inspired food that’s classic yet imaginative. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Describe your food writing style; what kind of story are you looking to tell?
Lipman: I want to taste as many different things as possible, connect with the fantastic city of DC and concisely tell the Borderstan readers all about it.
Which food writers are inspiring you right now? Who do you look to for food news?
Lipman: I loved Chris Shott when he was writing for Young & Hungry, and I’m now enjoying what Jessica Sidman has to say as well. The Bitches Who Brunch are a guilty pleasure.
What is your version of comfort food?
Lipman: Mashed potatoes and Thanksgiving-style stuffing. Warm and buttery, these dishes make me feel like I’m surrounded by family.
What is the cooking tool you can’t live without?
Lipman: My phone — to call for takeout or reservations.
