In Good Company.

The other night I found myself at an intimate fundraising dinner hosted by the wonderful Owner and Baker, Pascal Rigo and Alain Bourgade, Chef de Cuisine, of La Boulange. The evening offered a welcoming aperitif and three course family style meal baked right out of the bread oven. The donations collected were matched by La Boulange {a total of $10,600} and went directly to La Cocina*. C'était délicieux!

*La Cocina is a nonprofit incubator kitchen inspired by the ethnically diverse, economically vulnerable community and created out of the belief that given the correct resources, these natural entrepreneurs can create self-sufficient businesses that benefit themselves, their families, and their community.
