Earlier in this in in another blog, I posted a lead-in article about Tapas At Le Café de Paris. It was a great evening and Barbara Herrick joined us. I talked to Mathieu and told him that this was probably one of the best tapas events that he has held. And it was awesome! Here are some photos of the tapas night. Robin is posing in festive Cinco de Mayo costume at the Boise City Hall Fountain. Enjoy!
We shared with Mathieu and his Staff, some Lemon Huckleberry Curd that is made here in the Boise area. It is really good on the bread.
