Steady70 joins Chef Andy Trousdale @ the Funky Food Club

This was the 2nd time I had a chance to join Chef Andy and Elin Trousdale at their Funky Food Club (FFC) event. Once a month, about 20 seasoned connoisseurs  join together and share a table, tell tales and enjoy a unique experience over wine and original creations of a passionate chef......

The (FFC) at Le Bistro Restaurant Chef Andy serves whatever his heart desires based on his inspiration at the local markets. At times it's served with a smile, but most  times the chef stands just out of the way of the tables while absorbing the reaction of his group's insatiable tongues attempting to describe the dish's ingredients.  It brings me back to the times of elementary school when all the kids raise their hands and shout out at the teachers to pick them to give the right answer, or answers, before being shhhhssssed to be quiet!

But it's all fun and games here. Great people, great food... I find myself counting down the days to the next one.....
