Revisiting the most mouth-watering stories from 2011.

Today we revisit some of the stories we've done about the diverse and delicious gastronomic scene here in the nation's capital. We'll head to D-C's Capitol Hill neighborhood to sample what may be the world's most gourmet pop-tarts, and we'll visit the Korean Cultural Center to learn how to make the longtime staple kimchi. Plus, we'll ride along with some Chesapeake Bay watermen and take a tour down a rather mouth-watering memory lane of long-gone Washington restaurants.
