Well, at dinner last night we found out a few of our members are going to be at these two nights of LA/Paris food love! I just thought I'd put this up so we could communicate and meet up with each other during the events. If you haven't gotten tickets and are unsure about the hoopla, our member Kelly reports that she's gone to events in Paris- it's about fun and great food! And the chefs from France are supposed to be amazing.
