Last Week at SoFAB
We kicked off the 2014 French Market Fare Series with Chef Matthew Kopfler, who made batches of his delicious shrimp and herb calas, which we much enjoyed. We also held our third Raising the Dough Financial Literacy Class, which featured Trey Reinhardt and Nina Camacho talking about Branding. Finally, a big thank you to Alice Hopkins and the Mystic Krewe of Nyx for donating a few of their wonderful food-focused throws to the Museum. Did anyone catch one of their colanders?
