We have been to several 5-Star restaurants in Boise – Richard’s, Chandler’s, Cottonwood Grill, Andrae’s (when it was open) and Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, FL – and the dinner that Chef and Winemaker Storm Hodge and Sous Chef Megan Hartman prepared for us, and 50+ others, last night at the winery, gives any of these restaurants a very serious challenge. This dinner was every bit a 5-Star dinner. It was amazingly delicious. Kudo’s to the Chefs, their kitchen staff and the wait staff! I sincerely urge any of you who are in the area, to visit the Bistro on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday Brunch and have superb meal. (Here is more info at Parma Ridge Winery – Snake River AVA Happenings) Look at what they prepared and we enjoyed! (Left-Click any of the photos to see them enlarged.)
Maybe drizzly and somewhat blustery, but at least no snow or tornadoes or other such weather offerings! The crowd seemed to be down a little. Probably because of the stormy weather. Just the “die hards” ventured out to the market. We did get our fresh eggs from Meadowlark Farms, stock bones and fresh sliced pork belly from Homestead Farms, our weekly fix of sourdough bread from Acme Bake Shop – there are hot links to all of these venders in the sidebar. We also bought mushrooms, sorrel, watercress and fiddlehead ferns from The Mushroom Ranch. Enjoy these photos of the market this morning. Left-Click any of them to see enlarged. Cheers!
Such a great source to find some deliciously fresh local produce and foods. Hope to see you at the Boise Farmers Market at 10th and Grove next week. If you see me, say “Hi”. Cheers!
