Louisiana Tastes Umbria’s Rural Goodness (Mar. 5-6, 2014)
Cooking links people – and Mike, host in Ruston, LA. of two events, put the concept into practice in two delightful events he hosted.
He summed up our evenings like this:
“Thank you so much for making your way to Louisiana to spend time with Argent Financial clients and friends. Everyone had such a fantastic experience. Food and friendship: the bonds of life. I do appreciate the way you gifted us with the opportunity to learn the way families and friends experience food in Umbria, Italy. The flavors and tastes were superb. As we couldn’t all fly to Italy for an authentic Italian experience, it was great to have a bit of Italy come to us.”
You’ll see the enthusiasm of all our “Ruston cooks” in the photos below.
Mille grazie, Mike and Byron, for co-hosting two stellar Umbrian cooking evenings – and let us cook again soon together. At our Assisi farmhouse?
