A Chef's Affaire 

Raising money for the Idaho Foodbank (and savoring an amazing meal) for 30 years

Thirty years ago, Boise was hardly the place it is now. The Eastman Building was still three years from the fire that would transform the architectural landmark into the infamous Boise Hole. There was still a push to build a suburban-style shopping mall downtown, and the Grove was a parking lot.

It's hard to believe that this is the 30th anniversary of A Chef's Affaire, an event put on by the Idaho Foodbank where Boise food enthusiasts savor a six-course meal prepared by eminent area chefs, partake of wine and beer tastings, participate in live and silent auctions, enter raffles and dance. Less palatable is the hunger that's still pervasive in the Treasure Valley, which A Chef's Affaire was established 30 years ago to help alleviate.

In a fit of nostalgia for the golden age of hairspray, denim jackets and John Hughes films, the theme for this year's Affaire is the 1980s. Bonus points for rolling up to the Boise Centre, where the Affaire is held, to fight hunger in a Delorean.
