Le Papillon Gathering

Le Papillon is not only a great restaurant nestled in Saratoga, but it is also one of the BEST catering company. Their food is delicate, beautiful and most of all, tasty!! I cannot even find words to describe Le Papillon's food. The first time I had their food was at a wedding they did in the Kohl Mansion. I was immediately hooked.

Yearly, Mike (owner of Le Papillon) invites people in the industry to join in for a lunch/dinner gathering. This year, no difference. Generous Mike invited close 60 people (a guess) to this event. From photographers to florists to coordinators. What a treat to see everyone and meet new ones!

This is the salad I had. Delicious octopus salad:

Then followed with tender duck breasts cooked medium (just the way I like it ... yum!)

Then ended the beautiful afternoon with a fruit tart.

Here is the owner Mike with his awesome chef.

OK, I had to take this picture with the great photographer Todd Rafalovich. I NEVER see this guy in any social events, so when I have a chance to see him, I don't take it lightly ;)

Fellow photographer Deanna reached out to me a few months ago about how to establish a new web site and such. We had a great talk then but never met each other. We were both shocked when we ran into each other at this event.
