Oh my, here we go again with a delightful dinner on the First Thursday Program in Boise. The theme this time is French Tapas. Here is the menu that Mathieu sent out. Do enjoy this one!

First Thursday, June 2nd
Bonjour Mes Amis,

First Thursday in June (June 2, 2011) takes us to my native land, France where we have created some delightful tapas to tempt your tastebuds! Wine tastings from 6-8 pm, and some fabulous bottles to pair. Reservations are not required, but can be made by calling (208)336-0889. Weather should be absolutely beautiful outside so enjoy the patio, and we will see you there! Bon Appetit!

A Bientot,
Mathieu
