a (sort of) night in italy

Last year, my parents stumbled upon a husband and wife duo that was providing cooking classes out of their home in the adorable North End of Boise. They attended a few of them and finally decided to invite us along. So, on Christmas Eve, my husband and I along with my parents and brother and sister-in-law went to our first one together. It was an amazing evening spent learning about some tasty, beautiful—yet very simple—Thai cooking techniques. The next day, my brother and I were already talking about when we could plan the next one.

Well, the night finally arrived. Last weekend we spent the weekend in Boise and Saturday night my family and some friends of ours had another amazing evening—but this time we learned about some Italian foods. We made pasta, steamed fish, and a bringyoutoyourkneesgood chocolate mousse. The whole night was filled with laughter, good wine, and delicious food. Pretty much perfection. I love how food can do that.

This week, Colby and I are going to try some of the recipes on our own and I’ll post those recipes when we’re done. If you’re interested in attending one of the classes you can go here and sign up to be on their mailing list. They truly are lovely people and are so generous to open up their home like this.
