This is a sampling of the absolute FEAST we had Saturday night with Mark and Ayako. It was unbelievable. Mark once had a roommate who is a professionally trained French chef. We had nooooooooooooooooo idea.... He made the bruschetta bread and other tomatoey goodies. I can't possibly describe how good the food was... please remember that we haven't eaten fresh basil, fresh garlic, balsamic vinegar and olive oil since we were in Japan.
