Five days later, on Sunday, November 9th, we “held” our first L.A. Food Night.

Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. While KB and I did cook the meal that night—chicken manicotti—our friend Denise hosted, and the group was admittedly small. It was us, Denise, Lille, and two people we had just met, but would soon become close friends with: Mel and Kyle.

Here’s a photo of them with KB from that night:

And here’s another photo of the three of them nearly seven years later, shot during our going-away party on September 24th, 2015.

Our last official Food Night in L.A. was held on Sunday, September 20th, 2015. Unlike the first L.A. Food Night, a bunch of folks came out including our good friend Theune…

…Dima, Mana, and Greg…

…and a whole slew of other folks we love and miss dearly.
