With hundreds of restaurants and offices closed for Sandy, many Washingtonians spent the day cooking up their own kind of storm. Readers sent us pictures of everything from whiskey-spiked venison chili to mushroom pizza fired on a hotel stovetop. Click through the slideshow to see all the tantalizing hurricane-inspired dishes, or head to our Twitter feed to read the tasty descriptions of meals made during Sandy.

We will be updating the slideshow throughout the day Tuesday, so check back for more photos soon.
