Any cider mills (or something similar) in metro area?

Hi there fellow Michiganders and MidWesterners! I've yet to find a proper cider mill with donuts in the DC corridor but this weekend I stumbled onto something almost as good. Distillery Lane Ciderworks in Jefferson, MD. Its a cider mill for adults! The grow heritage apple varieties, press fresh cider and make a full range of barrel aged hard ciders. 5 bucks gets you a tasting of 4 varieties of hard cider. The ciders are very dry (the opposite of Angry orchard, Redd's, or Strongbow). Afterwards pop into family meal in Frederick for some donuts and cocktails :)

I love all the Michiganders searching for the Franklin Cider Mill experience out east. An industrious person should open a proper cider mill here.

fiddleheads at trader joe's [moved from Washington DC & Baltimore board]

I bought a little bag of fiddleheads yesterday at Trader Joes (in pikesville) and I must say that they were delicious. However, I made the mistake of eating a handful of them raw. Fiddlehead Ferns should be at least be cooked lightly. Raw they have a slight toxicity and can make you sick (like i am now) if you consume a large amount raw.

Baltimore's Newest Restaurants

Hersh's Pizza in Fed Hill. My husband and I tried it the other night and thought the pizza was fantastic. IMO Baltimore is a pizza desert, this place is the only decent slice I've found in a year of living here. Hersh's serves Neapolitan style pizza, the crust is very thin, crispy on the bottom and tender in the middle. My husband have the traditional margherita pizza and I had kale and pistachio. The food was great, the service was a bit awkward and it is SO difficult to park in that area.

Sosa products in Dallas?

I'm looking for hazelnut paste in Dallas. The silky smooth kind that is used by pastry chefs and in modernist cuisine. Haven't been able to get it from whole foods

a facebook group i can really get behind.

Eat it Detroit is how I keep up with the up and coming detroit food scene remotely.

Vegan/vegetarian friendly under $100/person total ?

Coming to town for the Just Food Conference on Feb 24. My friend is a vegan leaning vegetarian and I'm a vegetarian leaning omnivore. We'd like to spend around 100 dollars each. Blossom and Candle 79 are on our radar but I'd like to know what else is out there. Thanks!
