We're going "Down the Hatch" with our annual show about all things edible and drinkable in the national capital region. We'll explore the dispute over the District's reputation as a culinary capital. We'll chow down on cookies and croissants as we dig in to the city's burgeoning bakery craze. And we'll visit the nation's first farm built on the grounds of a low-income housing complex.
