Taste of Idaho

So, I am blessed to have good friends, great community etc...

The 2nd Annual Nampa's Taste of Idaho, presented by St Luke's was another wonderful evening. As with the inaugural year, celebrating the harvest brought the community together.

We fed close to 350 in Lakeview Park in Nampa Idaho. I was the Architect of the menu and Dustan the Meat and Au Gratins. Agri-beef and Simplot were the main in kind Food Sponsors and they really stepped up! Saint Alphonsus for the Salad and Symms Fruit Ranch for the those beautiful peaches and Huston Vineyards for their wonderful Riesling (to give those peaches a bath in)
