It was a year of change at Boise Co-op. After months of whispers and speculation, Spanish white anchovies are now offered in the deli. What, did something else go down? Sorry, we were eating one of those crunchy foot-and-a-half-long parmesan crostini from Zeppole and may have missed something. The days of unrivaled dominion are slipping away like so many grains of bulk quinoa, but the co-op still holds sway over Boise's cravings--that certain sandwich, tea tree oil toothpicks, foreign trifle, wine, the cheap-cheese bin--that ensures its future is bright.
