Re: “Miss Tami's Tea Room and Cottage Expressions

April 15th... I brought my Granddaughter and friends to the tea house for her birthday. Think you need to update your site when you change your hours...Tried to call endlessly before coming, the phone had a constant busy signal. Signed, 5 disappointed customers.

Re: “Going Local is Not as Simple As It Sounds

We have a central market online that anyone can buy a yearly subscription to and buy local produce, meat, and other local products with very little effort. I live up in Bonner County. Come up for a visit.

Re: “Passover Primer

Hosting this to the general public is a great idea. Thanks for spreading the word. I'm not a fan of most of the offerings at Deli Days (too assembly-line, cafeteria-style-ish), so this should be a better representation of quality Jewish cuisine. I yearn for a Jewish deli in town, but I don't think that'll ever happen.

Re: “Bunny Buffet

Reply to Jessica - Yes, all animals have (or should have) similar rights not to be harmed. Sadly if you're allowing (or instructing) your children to eat rabbits and other animals, you are teaching your children to disregard this basic right. You are giving them a fine example on how to bully those smaller, more helpless than you. It demonstrates an attitude of might makes right... After all, we do not require flesh to thrive and be satisfied.

Re: “Bunny Buffet

I raise meat rabbits. I'd rather know that the animal had a good life and was not mistreated before it died, than buy it from a store and have no idea if it was treated correctly or not. I want to know what the animal I am eating has ingested. Meat from the store has traveled a long way via truck, emitting tons of noxious gasses into the air. It is full of hormones, fed GMO food. I really don't see why a rabbit makes more fuss than another animals. Is it an immoral decision because one is cuter than the other? Don't all animals have similar feelings and similar "rights"? I want my children to know where food comes from. It isn't just made in the store. ALL meat has a face.

Re: “Pour-Over Coffee

ballsymcgee.. where do you get off on making assumptions like this? They are bringing something different to Boise, stimulating the LOCAL economy and they brew a tasty cup of coffee. Stop with the negativity.

Re: “Schnitzel Garten

Disagree with assertion of Schnitzel being deep-fried. Firstly, Schnitzel is not German - it is an Austrian dish. Secondly, my wife is Austrian and I lived there for two years with her and the family. They do not 'deep-fry' Schnitzel, it is pan-fried. Americans overall are culturally ignorant and should be more charitable about their supposed expertise, unless substantiated by real-life experience.

Re: “Feathers and Horns

Congratulations on joining the Small Herd Exemption program. I believe Marvin Patten (head of dairy at Idaho USDA) thought that the program would be shut down in the early days due to someone getting sick from unpasteurized milk. In four years it has not happened....came close down here in Magic Valley with milk that had "Streptococcus too numerous to count" (goat owner encouraged to raise calves/pigs) and over by Idaho Falls/Pocatello..."Q-Fever" (animals doctored and healthy now). Q-Fever is a common bacteria that is everywhere.

More people are waking up to wanting natural, healthy food choices, I find. As for the dairies losing lots of milk customers to Unpasteurized (REAL), the dairies already lost the customers as they've been going to Alternative milks (almond, coconut, soy, etc) for years now. I find most people that buy Unpasteurized milk to be VERY informed about the "risks" that MAY occur with drinking REAL milk.

Good luck in your endeavor.

Re: “Schnitzel Garten

I just want to call out GOODMUSIC71. You are a moron! The Schnitzel IS DEEP FRIED, Maybe that is the reason why they did not print your ignorant letter. Before pointing fingers, you need to know what the hell you are talking about.

Re: “Feathers and Horns

These people convey the human tradition with the milk cow: care and compassion. This is in contrast the the Idaho Legislature's view of abuse of cows with the ultra right wing, protect one industry at any cost, ag gag law. Butch Otter is complicit.

Re: “K-Fusion Korean BBQ and Grill

Not all Korean food is "tearfully spicy." Depending on the region, family recipes, and preference (as many Koreans do not automatically tolerate or like spicy foods), the flavors can range from very spicy to delicate and subtle. Korea is also very cosmopolitan--a side of cheesy potatoes can share the dinner table with a bowl of steaming kim-chi stew. If you get a chance visit Korean restaurants in a place like Los Angeles, for example, you will find that Korean food is diverse, complex, and that yes, sometimes a small side of potato salad does show up on the table next to the spicy octopus. BTW, I loved K-Fusion. The bulgogi is fantastic and the cook will make the soondubu seriously spicy if you ask.

Re: “Luciano's Italian Restaurant

Good place to eat but they do not take reservations on the weekend which makes no sense. Especially on Valentines which is one of the busiest nights of the year. Who wants to wait possibly an hour for a table on Valentines Day to get a seat somewhere?
