Becky Raymond was the first-prize winner of SRC’s second “Wine Dinner for 12” raffle at Cafe Capricio in Albany. Here is her report:
“What a memorable evening I and my book club members and husbands had last night. Chef Jim and his staff gave us not just a meal, but brought us into the Cafe Capriccio family, and made us feel as if we had landed in Italy for a marvelous family meal. And what a meal! It was way more than we could eat.
“Every aspect of the meal was explained to us, from the ingredients (mostly locally sourced), to the regional origin of each dish. We also learned about Cafe Capriccio’s semi-annual culinary trips to Italy. At least one of our members says she would like to go and bring her son, a chef.
“We were very pleased that Debbie and Chuck Rodriguez could join us. Debbie was able to answer Jim’s questions about Rotary.
“Thank you for arranging this amazing event. It’s a great fundraiser and one we hope will happen again. Not for us, but so that others may also experience it.”
