Sarah Meyer Walsh started The District Domestic to share her passion for incredible food, beautiful days in the garden and fine homekeeping.  She is also the Founder and Owner of Haute Papier, a couture stationery studio with locations in Georgetown and Leesburg, Virginia.  Her exquisite designs can be found in almost all 50 of the states and around the globe.  Her eye for exceptional design has also landed her in national publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings and Brides Magazine.

Growing up on a dairy and produce farm in Western New York, she was canning tomatoes and making strawberry preserves long before Mason jars graced the pages of Food & Wine.  A gourmand that knows exactly what it takes to make a perfect croissant, she’d never be caught with packaged cookies from the supermarket.  She’s truly a hostess with the mostess always planning down to the last detail of hand calligraphed placecards and menus for dinner parties.

A sucker for good books, fine wine, and a mean blue cheese mac-and-cheese, Sarah resides in Georgetown, with her husband and two dogs (aptly named Gewurz and Stella).

    Sarah..great site. I too love to cook and host parties and isn’t it funny that it was one of DC’s (your home town)finest pizzerias–Pizzeria Paradiso–which gave me the inspiration for a wood fired pizza oven in my new home! I’ll keep reading! felixpapadakis.wordpress.com

  2. Felixpapadakis – thanks for your feedback – we love Pizzeria Paradiso too!

    Watch for a post about homemade pizza soon.

    I just left you a comment on your vegetable gratin recipe – I love your site! I have a similar one that I’d like to add you to, if that’s alright with you. I think we have very similar sensibilities.

    HI Sar, is it too late for the t-shirt contest. I hadn’t checked your site in time and I would love a chance to win one.

    So, I just happened to be searching for some info on elderberry fritters, which have been an old favorite in my family but I havn’t had in years, and saw the link to your site here. I decided to check it out because I just thought it was kindof funny that, besides the Walsh part, we have the same name (and most people I’ve ever talked to have never even heard of elderberry fritters!) Anyway, you’ve got some great recipes here…I enjoyed exploring your site🙂 take care

  14. Sarah, I added your site to Dining in DC’s blogroll.
    I love your site. Keep up the great work!🙂

  15. What a great blog! Looking forward to your next posy🙂
