BTW: old posts can become outdated. Unfortunately, the "Biscuit Lady" has since passed. I'm sure that both her recipe and technique have survived.
Perhaps, but the biscuits are markedly different (to my palate) from what they were prior to the acquisition of Loveless by TomKats Catering in 2003. They are still good, but I can no longer detect the presence of lard, which was a primary component of these biscuits prior to 2003. The texture and the flavor is different and, to me, they are not quite as good as they were.
rest in Peace.
I really enjoy the little complimentary biscuit 'n james plate at the Loveless
. (I assume they do it as the COGS on biscuits is nearly "free" and "the freebie" really increases the after-meal sales of their high profit - and very tasty - jams & jellies).
BTW: whatever happened to the great "covers", like the pickles, bread, and cheeses at Mama Leone's
in The City, the pickles and breads at Duke Zeibart's
and Mel Krupin's
in DC, and those wonderful sticky cinnamon buns at Hogate's
(on the Maine Ave. "waterfront" in WDC)? All are gone, but none are forgotten.
