Peer Tribute from Julekha Dash

Updated: Jun 11, 2021

Julekha Dash is an award-winning Maryland-based journalist. She writes about food, beer, wine and sprits, travel, business, and commercial real estate.

I first met Martha Thomas almost a decade ago at a food event at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Having worked in the Baltimore area since 2003, I couldn’t believe it had taken so long for me to meet this prominent writer and a fixture on the local social circuit. I quickly began seeing more of Martha at local restaurant and theater events and we began writing for one another. She wrote for an online magazine I edited for a time, BmoreMedia, while I wrote for the Howard County publication she edited, Her Mind. Later I would write for Maryland Sip & Savor, a magazine dedicated too local wine, beer and spirits that she launched. She organized launch parties with each issue and I attended one in Howard County filled with writers, business people and advertisers. I got to see her impressive hostessing prowess on display again in 2018 at the Robert Burns party she threw at the gorgeous, art-filled Gilford home of a friend. I will always remember her ceremoniously bringing out the haggis on a silver platter while bagpipes played.
