If you've never had lunch at Life's Kitchen, do yourself a treat and treat yourself to some good food that is put out by a great program.
Life's Kitchen offers at-risk kids in our area the training for job placement in the food service industry. They've had a successful run with these kids and now the program is reaching out to serve up a little Idaho flavor with the afternoon meals.
So, I am happy to let you know that starting this week, Life's Kitchen has decided it's going to celebrate “Read Me Treasure Valley,” by serving up recipes from Patrick McManus’ book Whatchagot Stew: A Memoir of an Idaho Childhood, With Recipes and Commentaries.
Apparently McManus loved Basque Soup, Salmon Quiche and even Stuffed Cabbage Rolls to name a few of his favorites.
“The ‘Read Me Treasure Valley’ event is a terrific way to learn about Idaho’s history,” said Jeremy Maxand, Executive Director of Life’s Kitchen. “We are excited to give folks a literal taste of Idaho’s past while showcasing the culinary skills of our students.”
You can taste the McManus dishes Tuesday through Friday from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Life's Kitchen Lunch Café. The special dishes will be on the menu until May 3rd.
