Food is more than just fuel. It’s a social centerpiece and provides a foundation for some of our fondest, funniest, and most-talked about memories. And in this month’s issue, we have plenty of pieces focused around it, beginning with our feature, Top Chefs (page 49), where Luna Anona introduces you to 15 of our region’s culinary tastemakers—each with their own signature cooking style and skill set. Though the types of cuisine they dish out vastly vary, all of them share a passion for preparing mouthwatering plates. Learn all about them, including their food philosophies, favorite restaurants, top cooking tips, and how they rose to the top, then stop by their respective eateries to taste the fruits of their labor.Whatever your calendar looks like these next 30 days, I hope it’s filled with good friends, good food, and good times. Cheers!

’18


editor’s note

F

or five years now, I’ve been in a book club with four fellow females. Back when

it began, some of us had never met and others were casual acquaintances. Fast

forward to 2018 and we’re a close-knit group—affectionately known as the

“Book Club Babes, aka BCBS”—who’ve been through the birth of a child,

passing of a pet, marriages, breakups, career changes, and too many bottles

of wine. Though the books are what initially bonded us—and still act as the

reason behind our monthly meetings—it’s the laughter, deep conversations, and connections

with one another that have linked us for life.

Just like any gathering, our time together wouldn’t be complete without food—and wine—

and lots of it. Switching houses and hosts every month means we’ve gotten to experience

each person’s cooking style—from the member who owns a restaurant and serves wood-fired

pizzas, seasonal salads, and craft beers from said eatery (yep, she’s a tough act to follow), to

another who prefers serving heat-and-serve, semi-homemade suppers, and yours truly, who

uses it as an opportunity to

get creative in the kitchen,

then cross my fingers, and

hope for the best.

But the beauty of our

group, and any group of

true friends for that matter,

is we’re not judging each

other based on the spread’s

success (though, not gonna

lie, my girls can cook!);

rather, it’s the stories

shared and socializing

surrounding the meal that

bring us all closer.

My point is, food is more

than just fuel. It’s a social

centerpiece and provides

a foundation for some of our fondest, funniest, and most-talked about memories. And in this

month’s issue, we have plenty of pieces focused around it, beginning with our feature, Top Chefs

(page 49), where Luna Anona introduces you to 15 of our region’s culinary tastemakers—each

with their own signature cooking style and skill set. Though the types of cuisine they dish out

vastly vary, all of them share a passion for preparing mouthwatering plates. Learn all about

them, including their food philosophies, favorite restaurants, top cooking tips, and how they

rose to the top, then stop by their respective eateries to taste the fruits of their labor.

Whether you’re playing host or guest at this year’s Thanksgiving feast, you’ll want to check

out Taste (page 66) for a handful of autumn-inspired recipes from area food bloggers that are

easy peasy to prepare, halfway healthy, and guaranteed to please; and Sip on This (page 78) for

“Food is the ingredient

that binds us

together.”—Unknown

7 local wines that’ll be the talk of this year’s Turkey

Day table.

For some friendly reminders on what to be

thankful for, The 10 Spot by Tara Mendanha (page

20) has a dozen reasons that revolve around where

we live. Idyllic climate? Check. Top-tier schools?

Check. Easy access to farm-fresh fare? Check. I hope it makes you remember why our

community comes first and appreciate the people, places, and things that make it so special.

Whatever your calendar looks like these next 30 days, I hope it’s filled with good friends,

good food, and good times. Cheers!

What’s your

favorite meal

in town?

“I love a good taco, and the

Crispy Taco at 3 Hermanos

Taqueria in Lincoln is SO

GOOD. Shredded chicken,

cheese, sour cream, and tons

of guacamole. They’re super

messy but so worth it.”—Julie

Ryan

“My husband and I love going to

Inchin’s Bamboo Garden in Folsom.

Their take on Indian-Chinese

cuisine (yes, that’s a thing!)

gets us salivating the moment

we hit Prairie City Road. A

perfect meal here consists

of Pan-Fried Chili Fish, Burnt

Garlic Chili Rice, and Garlic

Pepper Chicken— we love our

chili and garlic as much as we love

Inchin’s!”—Tara Mendanha

“The Yolo Mango Burrito at

Dos Coyotes Border Café with

pasilla chile salsa is my go-to

lunch—not too heavy, not too

light, and it has fruit in it!”

—Gary Zsigo

‘TIS THE SEASON OF THE FEAST.

“The Style Roll from Suishin

Sushi, of course! Yum, yum,

yum!”—Terry Carroll

“The Thai Seafood Fat Pot at

Fat’s Asia Bistro is the perfect

wintertime nosh. Spicy, creamy,

and studded with seafood

and veggies in a rich coconut

curry sauce, it packs just

enough heat, sweet, and

sustenance to turn my hungry

frown upside down.” —Megan

Wiskus

“The all-you-can-eat sushi

lunch at Hisui Sushi rocks. It

offers a variety of things to

choose from and fills me up

for the rest of the day…and

beyond”—Debbie Newell-

Juhos

What are some secrets to making

perfect mac & cheese?

HawkinsSchool.com | 118 Woodmere Road, Folsom | 916.355.1900

First, make sure you cook your macaroni just to al dente. If you’re

going to bake your mac & cheese, however, it needs to be less

than al dente, so it doesn’t end up overcooked. A good béchamel

sauce—which should include cream, butter, flour, and milk—is

also key. Next, add whatever high-quality cheese and seasonings

you want. This is also the best time to add any toppings, like bacon,

jalapeños, etc.

How do I know which tire brand

and model is best?

When choosing tires, it’s

important to consider how

many miles you drive per year,

what kind of driving you do, and

what your vehicle requirement

is for size, speed rating, etc. I

would recommend seeking a

professional shop to find the

best ones and avail of amenities

like free rotation and tire repair.

Diane Schuur is one of those rare

singers, like Sinatra and Judy Garland,

both superb vocalist and alluring

entertainer. Through standards from

the great American songbook, her

singing conjures the emotions that

burn in our hearts, wild romance, and

the thirst for love and happiness.

Ms. Schuur embraces this music with

artistic integrity and deep respect for

the lyrics, giving true meaning to the

elegance and swing of both Sinatra

and Getz.

This will be a rare and special evening!

what’s up

Folsom’s annual Community Service Day set a new attendance record with a

whopping 3,200 volunteers tackling 70 different projects across the city! Service

opportunities ranged from sorting donated goods at Twin Lakes Food Bank to

painting new markings on bike trails.

Fire Station 39 celebrated its grand

opening in the Empire Ranch area

of Folsom. The new station houses a

Type 1 engine for all fires and a Type

3 engine for grass fires, with room

captains and eight engineers were

promoted, and a fire prevention officer

and eight new firefighter-paramedics

were hired.

Folsom has been ranked

the number one best

city for families to live in

California, according to

WalletHub. Opportunities

for recreation and fun,

education, health and

safety, affordability,

and socioeconomic

environment rankings all

played a part in their final

score of 80.84. El Dorado

Hills came in fourth with

a score of 76.67.

What’s more, Saratoga Way is slated to eventually widen to four lanes, which will help with traffic concerns...STEM funding is always

important, and the Folsom Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD) received another $3,500 to support the program. Aerojet Rocketdyne

Nine-year-old Sofia Sanchez

wants to change the face of

beauty. Born in Ukraine, she’s

one of many children with

Down syndrome (DS) who are abandoned

in orphanages. Her future might have been

bleak—but one day, fate intervened.

At first, Jennifer Varanini Sanchez had

no intention of adopting a child. She already

had three boys of her own, the youngest of

whom, Joaquín, has DS. But after donating

online to help children with DS get adopted,

she was sent a photo of the child she had

supported: Sofia. “I couldn’t take my eyes

off her,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘we helped

her find a family, but why can’t we be that

family?’” The adoption process proved

far from easy, but in the end, Sofia came

home to Placer County—making them “The

Sanchez Six.”

It wasn’t until a few years later that the

Sanchez’ realized Sofia had something

special. Her social media photos started to

garner public attention, and well-known

photographers began asking to take

her picture. Then, she began modeling

for major brands, including Target and

American Girl. A video she posted online,

in which she proudly declares, “I can do

anything I want!” went viral, and she

was even invited to speak on national

talk shows, including The Today Show. For

Sofia, now a spokesperson and advocate

for those with DS, it’s about showing

other kids like her that they can lead

happy, fulfilling lives. “[DS] isn’t scary,”

she says. “We help people to be more

accepting—to be kind.”

And her mom couldn’t be prouder.

“Sofia opened my eyes to the beauty of

imperfection,” she shares.

Happenings

Veterans Day is a treasured holiday by many, but November 11, 2018,

marks 100 years since the end of World War I, making this year’s

extra special. In addition to parades, plenty of local businesses are

acknowledging veterans and their sacrifice by offering discounts.

The Wayne Spence Folsom Veterans Day Parade is scheduled for

November 11 at 9 a.m. at the Target/Home Goods parking lot before

winding through town and ending at the Folsom Community Center.

El Dorado County Veterans are hosting their annual remembrance on

November 11 at 11 a.m. at the El Dorado County Veterans Monument

(360 Fair Lane) in Placerville. The Auburn Veterans Day Parade

and Community Ceremony and Luncheon begins at 10:50 a.m. on

Hills Rotary Club is hosting Blues and Brews for Vets at District Church

(7000 Rossmore Lane) on November 10 from 7-11 p.m. featuring

and programs that support veterans. Lastly, many Apple Hill farms

Love Where You Live

The 10 Spot by TARA MENDANHA

It’s no secret that we live in one of the best parts

of California—dare we say all of America…? With

this land’s bounty, beauty, and beautiful people,

there’s sooo much to be thankful for—including

you dear readers!

Our towns constantly make the best places

to raise a family list. The recent report by

WalletHub named Folsom, El Dorado Hills,

Roseville, and Rocklin in the top 15 spots to raise

a family in California. Given that we have topnotch

schools and more than capable public

servants and offices, we’re set for a lifetime of

contented living.

Gold Country is the portion of land from Sierra Nevada to

Sacramento Valley and we’re living in the heart of it.

Named after the Gold Rush that initiated the largest mass

immigration in the U.S., said Gold Rush made our little

corner culturally diverse and rich in history. It’s also what

catapulted San Francisco into the metropolis it is today.

You’re welcome, SF.

Let’s talk small businesses. Many here live the American

dream, thanks to a market that’s open-minded and willing to

shop small. There are numerous creative and groundbreaking

businesses surrounding us, covering industries like food, finance,

fitness, and more. Whatever the need, chances are, there’s a

friendly neighborhood business that provides it.

Location, location, location. If you hadn’t noticed,

we’re bang in between the ocean and the mountains,

equidistant from sky and sea. Picturesque towns,

endless forest with astounding wildlife, azure blue

lakes, and towering snow-capped mountains dot our

landscape. Whether Tahoe, Yosemite, or the Pacific—

they’re all a stone’s throw away!

With over 40 farmers’ markets in the region and

countless farms, ranches, and vineyards, it’s no wonder

we live a farm-to-fork lifestyle. The Sacramento region

produces the majority of the rice, almonds, caviar, tomatoes,

and grapes (many Napa Valley wines use grapes grown in

our region) we consume. The fall foods we’re now devouring

(pumpkins, pears, persimmons, or plums anyone?) also add

to this cornucopia.

Did you know California has the highest number of craft breweries in

the country with more than 900 operating across the state, including

67 (and counting) here in the region? Local breweries and wineries

consistently dominate competitions like the California State Fair. Most

ingredients are locally sourced to form a self-sustaining industry that

we’re very, very grateful for.

Also noteworthy is our local arts and cultural scene. Craft, heritage, and

music festivals along with county fairs happen year-round. Literally.

Just take a look at our Calendar section each month and you’ll see

what we’re talking about. There’s no dearth of things to do, see, and

experience.

Cat Haven in Central California

helped rescue Ophelia—a fourmonth-old

bobcat who was a

relinquished illegal ex-pet—and she’s currently a resident

at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary where she lives a happy,

healthy life. Remember: Wild animals can be affected by

humans; if you see one that’s injured or orphaned, contact a

professional wildlife rehabber to get them the care they need

MEET BOBCAT OPHELIA!

by Guy Easterling

We grow some of the most diverse, high-quality crops

around and enjoy mild temperatures, thanks to our

Mediterranean climate. With relatively moderate

winters, sweltering summers, fall colors, and spring

flowers, we get a taste of each distinct season

here without too many of the natural disasters

that plague other parts of the country. Knock

on wood.

If there are two things we love, it’s the great

outdoors and our pets. With so many

trails and parks (thank you, parks and

rec departments!), pets and people

alike tend to lead remarkably

active lifestyles away from the

pollution and chaos of big cities.

Biking, hiking, roller skating—

we know how to keep healthy

and happy.

What’s the point of it all if

it can’t be shared? Enter our

beloved local nonprofits and

charities. We’re proud of each

of them and come the annual

Big Day of Giving, our generosity knows no bounds. We’ve already

collectively donated over $30 million to our favorite causes. Our

cups runneth over in every possible way, and we’re thankful that we

get to share it with one another.

so they can return to the wild. Ophelia was taken in by someone trying to do the right

thing who didn’t have the proper training and therefore became imprinted, meaning

she recognizes another animal, person, or thing as her parent and cannot be

released back into her natural habitat.

Tracy

Lauth

Called to Create

by HEATHER L. BECKER

Award-winning plein air artist Tracy Lauth has roots rich in California’s

Gold Rush history. Growing up in Salinas—where her family settled

in the mid-1800s to seek their fortune—Lauth continued living

in the Bay Area after graduating from the International Culinary

Center. The former executive chef and owner of Black Tie Fine

Catering eventually traded her pots and pans in for paintbrushes

and turned her detail-oriented, artistic eye to canvas—capturing

majestic cities and landscapes filled with emotion and light. Since relocating with her

husband to Placerville, Lauth has held solo exhibits throughout the area at Marshall

Medical Center and the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors office, and shown her work

at Harris Center’s Bank of America Gallery and numerous juried competitions. “Being a

full-time artist doesn’t mean you paint full-time—people often have an image of artists

as dark, moody, introverts hidden away in a studio surrounded by unfinished [pieces]

where they work 24 hours a day creating masterpieces,” shares Lauth. “That’s mostly in

the movies. I live a bright, fulfilling life.”

Poppy Field After Spring Rain

HLB: WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR TALENT FOR PLEIN AIR?

TL: I started in photorealism, [followed by impressionism] with a bit of abstract thrown

in, and was exclusively a studio painter. When an opportunity arose to enter a plein air

competition, I took a chance. Painting outdoors was amazing; I was seeing everything

in its natural state: colors, shadows, values, tones, and life! I painted the same scene five

times in three days until I got it right and won first place. From then on, I was hooked and

now travel to competitions, paint outs, and symposiums to study and hone my skill. I paint

with oil and use brushes, fingers, sponges, and palette knives.

HLB: WHERE DO YOU SEEK INSPIRATION?

TL: I’m obsessed with skies—clouds, sunrises, sunsets, fog, and rain. I can sit on my sofa,

look out the window, and see a kaleidoscope of colors and light. My paintings often begin

with the sky then the foreground. When I’m feeling uninspired, I just go outside. I live on

three acres at the top of a hill where you can see for miles, which gives my mind some

breathing room.

HLB: YOU’RE A BIT OF A GLOBETROTTER. HOW HAVE YOUR TRAVELS INFLUENCED YOUR

WORK?

TL: The world is a beautiful place filled with amazing people.

My obsession with food and art has taken me on some great

adventures. Most recently, I spent a month traveling solo in

Greece, going to culinary school in Athens and Poros, and visiting

the ruins and smaller islands to photograph and sketch for

paintings. The colors of the Mediterranean were stunning, but the

people and cuisine were even better.

HLB: WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’VE HAD TO

OVERCOME?

TL: Identifying my own personal style [as]something that I love

and embrace. Plein air allows me to be me. It’s about painting

outdoors, in person, with your subject. Aside from the heat, cold, bugs, wind, and rain, it’s

amazing.

16 Holiday Survival Tips

by KOURTNEY JASON

Not to sound like the Grinch, but everyone

knows the holidays aren’t without a bit of

stress. Thankfully, whether induced by

family, finances, or falling off track with

your health goals, there is a light at the end

of the tunnel. Stay on track with these helpful tips from

local experts on how to survive the holidays.

MENTAL HEALTH

Don’t Do It All

1 “Simplify any area of your life that you can and let go of the idea

that you have to be a superhuman. You don’t have to do it all and

be everything to everyone.”—Donna Webb, Instructor, THE STUDIO

Martial Arts & Fitness

A Gift to Cheers

2 “I usually buy medium-priced bottles of wine by the case,

decorate them festively and inexpensively, and gift them to friends and

neighbors along with a handwritten note telling them why they’re so

special to me.”—Renae Linder, MSW, LCSW, Vice President and Owner,

Linder Psychiatric Group

Top Traditions

3 “Make a 'must-do' list of the activities, events, and traditions

that mean the most to you and your family and ensure everyone gets

something they enjoy on the calendar. Then schedule those events now

while you have control of your calendar. As other activities and events

pop up, only participate if your personal and family schedule allows.”—

Ann Vezey, Corporate Group Exercise Director, Spare Time Clubs

Moments of Self-Care

4 “Self-care is important at any time, but even more so during the

holidays, so go to the gym, read a book, or take a bath. The possibilities

are endless!”—Kayle Torres, MA, LMFT

Love Your People

5 “Take a moment to remind yourself that the most important part

of the holidays is the coming together with the people who matter the

most to you and how lucky we are to have that gift.”—Donna Webb,

Instructor, THE STUDIO Martial Arts & Fitness

SPIRITUAL

Press Pause

6 “Take some time for mindfulness. Sit down occasionally, close

your eyes, do some deep breathing, and let your mind drift without

demanding any direction or response. Everything can be go, go, go, so

stepping back once in awhile can be very helpful.”—Cary Nosler, Host,

“Forever Young” on SiriusXM Radio

The True Meaning

7 “Lean in to the deeper part of what the holiday means, usually

it’s based on something that means peace, joy, or blessing—which

we all need more of.”—Lance Hahn, Senior Pastor, Bridgeway

Christian Church

Giving vs. Receiving

8 “Give something to someone with these two guidelines: First,

give to someone who doesn’t know you. Second, give to someone

who can’t repay you. Reciprocal giving is great—we lean strongly

into that at Christmas—but giving to someone who can’t repay

you tests the belief that it is indeed more blessed to give than to

receive.”—Brad Franklin, Pastor and Storyteller, Lakeside Church

Count Your Blessings

9 “Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have to

combat any negative thinking. Express gratitude for the things

you have, and do something for those less fortunate.”—Therese

Sorrentino, LMFT

NUTRITION

Freezer Meals

10 “Fall is a great time for fresh fruits and veggies. Cook and

freeze meals now to enjoy fall’s freshness during the season’s

busiest times.”—Ann Vezey, Corporate Group Exercise Director,

Spare Time Clubs

Food is Fuel

1 “Sticking to a healthy diet is a key component of managing

stress. Giving your body proper food will give you the energy you

need.”—Rachael Dardano, Owner and Holistic Health Coach,

Internal Wisdom

Balance Your Plate

12 “When you do sit down for a holiday meal, load your plate

with veggies and protein first. Hopefully your first round fills you

up, so when you go back for some carbs, you won’t overindulge.”—

Mark Cavallaro, CSCS, CPT, Head Trainer, Roseville Health &

Wellness Center

Dessert Picks

13 “Pick your three favorite desserts ahead of time and tell

yourself you’ll stick to only those. This will help with portion control

and keep you from grazing the table!”—Kori Polee, Nutritionist and

Exercise Physiologist, Roseville Health & Wellness Center

Hydrate

14 “Cool winter air carries less moisture than warm air does,

so it’s [imperative] to drink lots of water. And remember: Alcohol

and coffee are dehydrating, so drink extra water if you enjoy an

adult beverage or caffeine.”—Lauren Mathewson, ND, Revolutions

Naturopathic

FITNESS

Sneaky Steps

15 “If you can’t make it to the gym, find other ways to burn

calories. Examples are speed-walking through the mall while

shopping for holiday gifts, parking further away, and taking

the stairs instead of elevators and escalators.”—Lisa Robinson,

General Manager, Roseville Health & Wellness Center

Fitness Friends

16 “Find a fitness

buddy or fitness

support group of any

kind—whether it’s a

friend who will keep

you accountable,

a running partner,

gym buddy, group to

workout with, etc.”—Jodie Wood, NASM-CPT, PES, Personal Trainer,

Raley’s Food

For Families

Taking a Bite Out of Hunger

by LINDA HOLDERNESS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

You’ve likely seen the small

collection boxes at the

cash registers at Raley’s,

Bel Air, and Food Source

checkout stands that say:

Donate to Raley’s Food For Families.

Have you wondered what happens to the

money given (via cash or card) in this nopressure

appeal for help? A lot, as it turns

out.

Raley’s founded the nonprofit Raley’s

Food For Families 32 years ago to help

feed people designated as “food insecure,”

meaning they don’t have access to enough

food for healthy living. The nonprofit’s

mission is “to end hunger locally by

providing fresh, healthy food to those who

need it most.”

Initially a canned food drive, Raley’s

Food For Families now provides literally

millions of pounds of nutritious food each

year to hundreds of thousands of hungry

families in Raley’s service areas—from

Salinas, Yreka, and Northern Nevada,

to El Dorado County, Placer County, and

beyond. The need is staggering: As of 2015,

in Sacramento County alone, more than

240,000 people did not have enough to eat.

The specter of hunger is especially

acute during the holiday season, when food

becomes a focus of celebration. During the

last two months of the year—beginning

November 4 this year—the organization

holds their annual Holiday Bag Drive

marked by displays of nutritious groceries

at checkout stands. For a $10 donation,

supplemented by Raley’s, a family will

receive a bag of food valued at $30 and

enough for 20 meals from such items as

fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, canned

tuna and green beans, diced tomatoes,

pasta sauce, whole-grain

pasta, peanut butter, Raisin

Bran, and applesauce. “We’re

very particular about the

products we put into the

bags,” says Becca Whitman,

the program’s executive

director and the community

relations manager for

Raley’s. “We focus on

nutrition and health.” No

turkeys? Not any longer,

because other sources offer

them. These bag donations

add up, too. Last year, the Holiday Bag Drive provided more than 3.7

million meals.

Four years ago, Raley’s Food For Families introduced Summer

Fresh Drive, a program that raises funds to make more fresh fruits

and vegetables available to schoolchildren whose summer break also

means a break from free meals. This past summer, the organization,

in partnership with the Sacramento Public Library, held farmers’

markets at local library lunch program sites and donated bags of fresh

produce to over 500 families.

The success of Raley’s Food For Families relies in part on its unique

distribution system. Raley’s doesn’t dole out food. Instead, it partners

with county food banks aligned with Feeding America—including

Placer Food Bank and Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services,

and the agencies they both support—placing all the donations into

accounts the food banks can then “spend” (at Raley’s cost) according

to the needs of the agencies and communities they serve. “We’re a

middle man of sorts,” Whitman says. “We try to leave the decisions

to the experts and provide them with the resources to do good.”

Home is Where

the Hearth Is

3 Hot Fireplace Ideas

by KERRIE L. KELLY, FASID

Afireplace is oftentimes the primary focal point of a living room,

providing warmth, comfort, and structure. Still, there can be challenges

when it comes to designing your living space around one. How close

can the furniture be to the heat and flames? Is there a “best” option

for placement of the sofa? What if there are competing focal points,

such as in a room with a terrific view? Here are a few design tips and

tricks that will help when faced with such decisions.

Mendota Hearth DXV45 DT4 Fireplace

A

so symmetrical, this configuration makes

balance fairly easy to achieve and provides

a cozy ambiance to the room.

But what if the room and fireplace is

on a much grander scale? If that’s the case,

you would want to “pull it back,” allowing

for larger furniture arrangements echoing

the larger scale and to avoid having the

space seem cavernous. In room (B), proper

balance is the result of high ceilings and

windows being offset by the extra-large

yet simple, non-fussy furniture selection

and the oh-so-handsome fireplace that

assumes the role of artwork.

2ROOM WITH A VIEW

A not uncommon dilemma when

it comes to designing your room

around a fireplace is the dueling focal point

issue. This occurs when there’s a second or

even third focus drawing your attention,

such as large picture windows with

breathtaking views. In these instances, it’s

often best to take your cue from the old

adage: “Who says we can’t have it all?”

1BALANCING ACT

Achieving a sense of balance is

always a primary goal of good design.

Sometimes this is easy to accomplish, as in

the photo above where two comfy chairs

flank the fireplace and the sofa sits directly

opposite the fireplace with a conveniently

placed coffee table in front. Because it’s

In rooms (C, D & E), it’s easy to see how furniture placement that

allows for a full appreciation of your fireplace, along with spectacular

views, is completely doable. The trick is all in flexibility; there are no

rules. Scoot that chair around at just the right angle to check out the

view while still enjoying the warmth and comfort of your beautiful

fireplace.

Alternatively, if your sofa faces the view while being perpendicular

to the fireplace, try placing a couple of easily moved or swivel chairs

opposite the sofa to allow for the ultimate in viewer options and

comfort.

3TAKE A SEAT

While most often a fireplace does provide the primary focal

point of a room, sometimes one is there “just because,” hidden

away in a small secret nook or adding an extra architectural element

where none is expected. Furniture arrangement may seem like a

moot point in such a case, but the opposite is true. Though the seating

may be minimal, it becomes more important than ever to provide a

“landing pad” with at least one chair or bench so that one or two people

can sit and enjoy such

a treasure.

So, let the fun

begin, and let common

sense and comfort be

your guide.

Michael Liu

Hisui Sushi, 25004 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 107,

Folsom, 916-985-7778, hisuisushi.com

Michael Liu was born into the restaurant

industry. His parents owned Chinese

restaurants in the Bay Area, and he often

helped out. At 16, he got his first official job as a

dishwasher at a Japanese restaurant and—after

learning and honing his skills from some of the

eatery’s amazing chefs—went on to become the

successful owner and chef at Folsom favorite

Hisui.

First memory of food: My grandma’s cooking.

Since my parents were busy with the restaurant

business, most of the time my grandma would

prepare homemade meals for my brothers

and me. I loved her beef noodle soup and

rice porridge. I still don’t know how she makes

them, but I know no one can make them as

perfectly as her.

Food philosophy: Combining traditional

cuisine with a creative and contemporary flair

using only the freshest, healthiest ingredients.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: An engineer. I went

to school for it and got a degree but found my

passion in food. I love what I do and ended up

being really good at it!

Top cooking tip: Good food is actually pretty

simple. It always starts with the origin of your

ingredients; fresh, natural ingredients make just

about everything taste way better.

The best thing I ever ate: When my wife and

I visited South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan, we

had the most amazing food experiences. The

street markets during the day, the vibrant night

markets, fish markets, and the food festivals—

there’s such a diversity to the food they offer,

and it was a true food paradise.

One food I’ll never get behind: Overcooked

cabbage. The smell is disgusting!

Guilty pleasure food: Ice cream.

Favorite ingredient to work with: Fish sauce.

It’s an umami bomb that gives depth and

richness to sauces and main dishes.

For dinner last night, I ate: A perfectly

seasoned homemade pork chop with potatoes

and veggies—and, of course, ice cream for

dessert.

Favorite food pairing: Sake with sushi. Sake is

very versatile and complements many cuisines.

Favorite restaurant and dish: Alexander’s

Steakhouse in Cupertino. It’s an American

steakhouse with a Japanese flair. I love their

dry-aged tomahawk chop, truffle mac & cheese,

and complimentary cotton candy.

You’d never know it, but: I love playing video

games.

Karen Holmes

Karen’s Bakery and Café, 705 Gold Lake Drive,

Folsom, 916-985-2665, karensbakery.com

Taro Arai

Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, various

locations, mikunisushi.com

The self-proclaimed happiest

chef ever, Taro Arai learned

how to cook from watching

his mother and reading

books. When the raw fish

aficionado and hailed “Lord

of Rice” isn’t rolling delicious

concoctions from the sea, you

can probably find him doing

charity work—or devouring

his mother’s homemade

dashi.

First memory of food: I

grew up eating my mom’s

home-cooked meals, so

maybe a bowl of rice with a

raw egg, from one of our own

chickens, or furikake, which is

dried fish and vegetables.

Food philosophy: I follow

the three “F”s: fresh, freestyle,

and freaky!

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:

Working for a charitable

organization, which I already

do part-time at the Mikuni

Charitable Foundation.

Top cooking tip: There are

no rules, so just cook from

your heart.

The best thing I ever ate:

Tai (sea bream) sashimi in

my hometown of Amakusa,

Japan.

One food I’ll never get

behind: I’ve traveled all over

the world looking for one

thing that I didn’t like, but I

haven’t found it yet—I like

everything!

Guilty pleasure food: I never

feel guilty.

Favorite ingredient to work

with: Fresh fish.

For dinner last night, I

ate: Sōmen noodles from

Nagasaki, Japan, with my

mom’s homemade dashi.

Favorite food pairing: Nigiri

and sake.

Favorite restaurant and

dish: I have too many friends

in this field—I like all of the

restaurants!

You’d never know it, but:

I used to be very shorttempered,

but now I’m full

of joy.

At 12 years old, Karen Holmes was preparing three-course

meals—that included the ambitious Baked Alaska—for her

parents. Given her Danish lineage—where she says that

baking is part of your life regardless of age or gender—

perhaps it’s no surprise that she’s the accomplished chef

she is today. (More proof that it runs in the family? Her son,

Duncan, recently received a nod from Bon Appétit for his

restaurant Call in Denver.)

First memory of food: Plum-flavored baby food.

Food philosophy: Food should be adventurous, but also

personal. I love trying new things, but I also like food that

people would just come over to your house to eat; the

whole micro-tweezer food movement isn’t for me.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A culinary travel guide.

Top cooking tip: Be adventurous, and don’t be afraid to

try something new. We all burn stuff—you can always try it

again.

The best thing I ever ate: It was a dish in a very complex

broth with fresh peas, lots of dill, and a sous-vide egg.

The peas were raw and the warm yolk flooded the whole

thing—it was the sexiest, most delicious thing I’ve ever

eaten.

One food I’ll never get behind: I just can’t deal with

eggplant.

Guilty pleasure food: Chips and salty things—I love the

salt and pepper kettle chips.

Favorite ingredient to work with: If you took everything

away from me, I’d be the most bummed if you took away

produce. Produce is a miracle.

For dinner last night, I ate: I went to eat dinner at the

house of some friends. They’re really good cooks and made

Cornish game hen with Cuban seasoning.

Favorite food pairing: A lot of people like charcuterie and

cheese, but I love charcuterie and dried fruit.

Favorite restaurant and dish: Anything at Manfreds & Din

in Denmark—they’re constantly changing the menu.

You’d never know it, but: I race Porsches.

Frank Visconti

Visconti’s Ristorante, 2700 East Bidwell

Street, Suite 700, Folsom, 916-983-5181,

viscontisristorante.com

He’s twirled pies in the Bay

Area and sharpened his Italian

culinary skills in Chicago, but

one thing Frank Visconti hasn’t

done is perhaps a blessing:

He’s never deviated from

cooking Italian food—having

done it now for 33 years. He’s

just as committed to the love

behind the plate as he is to

what’s on it, which may be why

his restaurant has become

such a staple in Folsom.

First memory of food:

Thinking I was a chef by

playing with my mom’s pots

and pans when I was around

five years old.

Food philosophy: To pass on

the tradition of homemade

food made with love and

passion for not only the meal

itself, but also what that

entails—the meaning of family.

Italians are known for growing

our own fruits and vegetables

while making all of our meals

from scratch with the family,

and it’s a way for us to get

together and bond.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A

Ferrari mechanic.

Top cooking tip: Cook with

pride and fashion.

The best thing I ever ate: My

grandmother’s veal rollatini.

One food I’ll never get

behind: Liver.

Favorite ingredient to work

with: Garlic and white wine.

For dinner last night, I ate: A

ribeye steak.

Favorite food pairing:

Eggplant alla mama and

gnocchi alla vodka.

Favorite restaurant and dish:

The King Arthur cut at House

of Prime Rib in San Francsico.

You’d never know it, but:

Other than cooking, I’m

passionate about cars and

construction.

Nick Dedier

Milestone, 4359 Town Center Boulevard,

Suite 116, El Dorado Hills, 916-934-0790,

milestonerestaurantedh.com

Nick Dedier has traveled leaps and bounds

from his college days of working as a casual

server and even as a dishwasher at Strings

Italian Café. From attending the Culinary

Institute of America in New York and holding

varying positions at numerous Michelin star

restaurants—Daniel Boulud Brasserie, Gary

Danko, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group—to

working with Auberge Resorts, it’s safe to say

this superstar has an impressive résumé—and

some serious culinary chops. Decorative

background aside, however, his true joy lies

in supporting small businesses by cooking

solid, locally sourced, seasonal food for the

community.

First memory of food: Making scrambled eggs

with my mom and Aunt Jan. I learned on my

own that the more cream I added the better

they were.

Food philosophy: Always cook like you're

cooking for family and friends, not customers

or the bottom line. Keep it classic, not trendy;

rich and valuable, not precious and pricey.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A fishing guide.

Top cooking tip: Chefs only become better by

using better quality ingredients with diligently

practiced techniques.

The best thing I ever ate: Oysters and Pearls

at The French Laundry in Yountville.

One food I'll never get behind: Vegan food

made to look like meat.

Guilty pleasure food: Any hot dog from

Ruffhaus Hot Dog Co.

Favorite ingredient to work with: Great food

is loaded with love; considering I’m my own

boss working with my fiancé in a New American

restaurant, I get to work with that ingredient

every day and am proud to say it shows. Also,

salt. Developing a method and a madness to

salt usage really makes food sing. The famous

chef Jean-Louis Palladin made the inference

that people don't go to restaurants because

[chefs] know how to cook, they go out because

[they] know how to use salt.

For dinner last night I ate: Leftover Chinese

food in the only fashion acceptable—the dregs

from every box, in a bowl, with white rice

heated up and devoured.

Favorite food pairing: Sparkling wine and

anything; or pork and fruit.

Favorite restaurant and dish: “Chip and Dip”

at State Bird Provisions in San Francisco.

You'd never know it, but: I grew up absolutely

loathing onions.

Jarunee Fleming

Thai Paradise, 2770 East Bidwell Street, Suite 100,

Folsom, 916-984-8988, thaiparadisefolsom.com

If you look far enough down

Jarunee Fleming’s résumé,

you’ll find the time she

honed her cooking skills in

Bangkok, Thailand, which

explains why her Thai curries

are so popular—and one of

her favorite things to cook.

Her focus today? Bringing the

authentic flavors of Thailand

to Folsom. Yes, please.

First memory of food: Being

six years old and eating rice.

Food philosophy: I just love

making people happy and

healthy.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d

be: Growing flowers and

vegetables.

Top cooking tip: Taste what

you cook before you serve it!

The best thing I ever ate:

Cioppino at Sotto Mare in San

Francisco.

One food I’ll never get

behind: Beef.

Guilty pleasure food: Ice

cream.

Favorite ingredient to work

with: Chiles.

For dinner last night, I ate:

Veggie soup!

Favorite food pairing:

Shrimp and greens.

Favorite restaurant and

dish: Cioppino at Sea Chest

in Cambria.

You’d never know it, but:

I’m a great singer.

Christine Ondrus-Lykos

Farmer’s Delicatessen and Bakery, 3952 Cambridge

Road, Cameron Park, 530-672-6800, farmersdeli.net

John Sanders

Old Town Grill, 444 Main Street, Placerville, 530-622-

2631, otgplacerville.com

John Sanders always

knew he wanted his own

restaurant. He’s clocked 41

years as a chef (18 at the

grill) and while food will

always be his first passion,

his other passion is helping

folks develop a solid work

foundation right in his own

kitchen.

First memory of food:

Coming from a family of

nine children—yes, nine—my

dear mother would prepare

a meal for the family and

we’d all share the day and

enjoy it together.

Food philosophy: Take

advantage of the local

resources and bounty that

our area has to offer.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:

I’m living my dream job.

Top cooking tip: The three

“T”s ensure a finished

product—time, temperature,

and taste.

The best thing I ever ate:

A perfectly seared and

seasoned chuck-end, bonein

ribeye.

One food I’ll never get

behind: Mushrooms—I like

the earthy profile, but I can’t

handle the texture.

Guilty pleasure food: My 10

p.m. snack!

Favorite ingredient to

work with: Walking through

our farmers’ markets and

utilizing whatever came out

of the farms that day.

For dinner last night, I

ate: Shrimp fajitas in a cast

iron skillet cooked on an

open fire alongside zucchini

stuffed with crab, salmon,

scallops, and lobster.

Favorite food pairing: Wild

game with a deep, earthy

sauce and fresh herbs.

Favorite restaurant

and dish: Cioppino with

sourdough bread at Scoma’s

in San Francisco.

You’d never know it, but:

I have more than 30 years

being clean and sober, and

my passion through food

is to help others who just

need a break or a chance.

Christine Ondrus-Lykos thought she might attend the

Culinary Institute of America some 20 years ago, but

instead, the self-taught chef blazed a trail all on her own

by traveling through Europe and gaining an immense

appreciation of what other countries and cultures bring

to the American palate—and plate. Now the native New

Yorker is doing the same at her beloved bakery and deli in

Cameron Park.

First memory of food: I visited Hungary and Romania

when I was four. I remember playing with pigs and chickens

on a remote farm, and I vividly recall seeing a whole animal

being cooked on top of a spit in an open field.

Food philosophy: Keep it simple, take your time, and mind

your energy in the kitchen—energy is an ingredient!

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A rally sports car driver.

The best thing I ever ate: Crème caramel in Barcelona.

One food I’ll never get behind: Escargot.

Guilty pleasure food: Pizza.

Favorite ingredient to work with: Garlic—yum!

For dinner last night, I ate: Chicken salad with avocado.

Favorite food pairing: Clarified butter and garlic.

Favorite restaurant and dish: The Cashew Chicken at Thai

House.

You’d never know it, but: When I was younger, I wanted to

be a dancer.

Mark Berkner

Taste Restaurant, 9402 Main Street, Plymouth, 209-245-

3463, restauranttaste.com

Mark Berkner serves as the

department chair for the

San Joaquin Delta College

of Culinary Arts, a tasty full

circle from when he was a

student studying culinary

arts at Contra Costa College.

The chef and educator

believes that all chefs are

artists, and after a bite of his

foie gras or seared scallops,

we’re inclined to agree.

Food philosophy: Food

should be prepared and

consumed at its most

optimal freshness and

ripeness while showcasing

the natural flavors of the

ingredients. It shouldn’t be

intimidating, but it should

be a nourishing experience

that makes your taste buds

happy.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:

Test driving dirt bikes.

Guilty pleasure food:

Reuben sandwiches.

Favorite ingredient

to work with: Wild

mushrooms that I’ve

foraged.

For dinner last night, I ate:

Liverwurst on crackers at 10

p.m.

Favorite food pairing: Toast

paired with anything!

Favorite restaurant and

dish: The Waterboy, and

anything on the menu.

You’d never know it, but:

I’m a professor.

Dean Hiatt

Poor Red’s Bar-B-Que, 6221 Pleasant Valley Road, El Dorado,

530-622-2901, poorreds.com

Dean Hiatt might just be one of the last nice chefs standing. Most

chefs have a story or two about how fiery the kitchen can get—in

more ways than one. Instead, Dean says he watched chefs mistreat

their employees as he worked his way through kitchens and vowed

to never do the same. He also supports what he calls “reverse

farming”—where local farms come to him and ask what they can

grow for the restaurant, instead of vice versa, which puts less strain

on the environment.

First memory of food: My biological mother left when I was

younger, so it was just me, my brother, and my dad. I remember

watching Julia Child with my dad—he’d take notes and then make

us dinner later.

Food philosophy: I like my food to tell a story, especially a story of

the landscape—so if I serve venison, I also serve mushrooms; or if I

serve fish, I also serve nuts from the river.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: I’m currently in my third dream job—

previously, I was a firefighter and a musician. If I had to move on

from here, I’d be a police officer.

Top cooking tip: Coco Chanel says that before you leave the

house, you should take one thing off—I think before you send

out a plate, you should take something off. Don’t overthink or

overcomplicate it.

The best thing I ever ate: Barbecue back home in Texas.

One food I’ll never get behind: Sushi. I like looking at it, but I just

can’t eat raw fish.

Guilty pleasure food: I like to dip a spoonful of peanut butter in

chocolate chips.

Favorite ingredient to work with: Sage. It reminds me of home.

For dinner last night, I ate: I made sage dirty rice with a sagestuffed,

bacon-wrapped pork loin, and winter roasted vegetables,

and yes, sage.

Favorite food pairing: Some kind of root vegetable and ribeye.

Favorite restaurant and dish: I love The Independent Restaurant

and Bar! Every time I go, I’m always going to get their California

Chicken Sandwich; I have them take the avocado off though—it’s a

texture thing.

You’d never know it, but: I was homeless, living in my truck in

a parking lot in Las Vegas trying to put myself through a culinary

education working under some chefs for not a lot of money. I guess

the dream was bigger than anything else.

and undeniable passion?

Fellow chefs that he's

First memory of food: My

It was—and still is—the best.

Food philosophy: Use what

Mother Nature has provided

us and enhance it with

passion and love.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A

Top cooking tip: Have

passion. If that ingredient is

missing, then forget it.

The best thing I ever ate:

My mother's home cooking. I

want some now, actually!

One food I’ll never get

behind: Liver. Never.

Guilty pleasure food: Sushi.

Favorite ingredient to work

with: A homemade, slowly

simmered stock. From that,

the magic blossoms.

For dinner last night, I ate:

Sushi.

Favorite food pairing: A

magnificent Port paired with

a magnificent dessert—paired

with me and close friends on

the beach.

Favorite restaurant and

dish: The Albacore Pepperfin

and Lobster Roll at Mikuni.

You’d never know it, but:

I absolutely love hard rock.

The louder and harder, the

Angelique Miller

Zest Vegan Kitchen, 2620 Sunset Boulevard, Suite 1,

Rocklin, 916-824-1688, zestvegankitchen.com

Plant-based kitchen virtuoso

Angelique Miller traveled for

work when she was young,

studying food every new place

that she went. In 1995, she

began a vegetarian diet, and

further honed her producetransforming

chops after going

vegan in 2008. Now she’s

devoted to demonstrating how

delicious food can be without

meat.

First memory of food: My

dad, who is Croatian, would

make palacinkas, which are

like a thick crêpe. I used to

smother them in jam and roll

them up.

Food philosophy: I love to

celebrate plants in all their

beautiful glory. Delicious

colors, flavors, and textures

can happen with the simplest

ingredients. I strive for food

being not only delicious and

beautiful, but nourishing and

joyful.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:

I’d love to spend more time

being creative and innovative

while other trusted individuals

handled the daily business

aspects of running a restaurant.

Top cooking tip: Use whatever

tools you can find to make

cooking fun and easy, and get

in there and play.

The best thing I ever ate: I’m

still haunted by the memory of

a breathtaking chile relleno I

had as a kid in Arizona at a tiny

hole-in-the-wall restaurant. So

uniquely and freshly prepared,

it inspires me to this day. I

also once had a cherimoya

fruit that was so perfectly

sun-ripened and flavorful

that it was bliss beyond belief,

eliciting audible moans and

head-to-toe tingles. I’m still

chasing that experience each

time I buy a cherimoya.

One food I’ll never get

behind: Animals.

Guilty pleasure food:

So Delicious cashew ice

cream (salted caramel and

snickerdoodle).

Favorite ingredient to work

with: Besan (a smooth yellow

chickpea flour found in Indian

grocery stores). It’s shockingly

gross when tasted raw, but

borderline magical after it’s

freshly cooked.

For dinner last night, I ate:

Veggie enchiladas, green

cilantro rice, chips, and salsa

Favorite food pairing: Fruit

and herbs, like blackberries

and sage or watermelon and

mint.

Favorite restaurant and dish:

The vegan OMFG roll from

Lou’s Sushi in Sacramento.

You’d never know it, but: My

kids were born in Haiti, and

I have a deep appreciation

and love for Haitian culture

and food, which is mainly

Caribbean with a French

influence. I offer Haitian dishes

sometimes at Zest and am

thrilled when people try them.

Kara Taylor started working in coffee and donut shops

when she was 13, followed by a pie-making stint at an apple

orchard. By 15, she was cooking on the line at a fine dining

Italian restaurant. Today? You can find her slinging some of

the best duck confit in Northern California, among other

things.

First memory of food: Eating lobster at a birthday party

when I was four. Growing up in coastal New England, it was a

family tradition to eat lobster on our birthdays.

Food philosophy: Less is more.

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: Doing community development

work in the nonprofit or public sector.

Top cooking tip: Don’t rush it. Dishes cooked “low and

slow” like confits and braises are my specialty.

The best thing I ever ate: Lobster in butter, lobster bisque,

lobster roll—I really love lobster.

One food I’ll never get behind: I can’t think of anything I’ll

never like!

Guilty pleasure food: Fried chicken, but I don’t really feel

guilty about it.

Favorite ingredient to work with: Pork.

For dinner last night, I ate: A sausage sandwich with

grilled peppers and onions.

Favorite food pairing: During fall, butternut squash and

chipotle chili.

Favorite restaurant and dish: Chile Relleno and Blood

Sausage Tacos from Santa Maria Taqueria.

You’d never know it, but: I spent a year working as a tool

librarian, lending out tools and fixing small engines on lawn

mowers.

DINING SPOTLIGHT

Amore Mio

Italian Bistro

Love at First Bite

by LORN RANDALL // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Salsicce e Pollo in Coppia

64 stylefedh.com // NOVEMBER 2018 // /stylefedh /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemagfedh


By strange coincidence, when I was asked to review the Gold Country’s

newest Italian bistro, I had been craving the authentic, rustic cuisine of

Northern Italy. I just didn’t expect it to be in Placerville. As my plus one

and I strolled down a quaint courtyard off

Main Street, we came upon our destination: “THE BISTRO IS THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN OWNERS SIGRID

Amore Mio.

AND MARI—TWO PERSONALITIES BUBBLING WITH GIOIA E AMORE

The bistro is the collaboration between

owners Sigrid and Mari—two personalities (JOY AND LOVE), THANKS TO A PASSION FOR THEIR NEW LIFE IN THE

bubbling with gioia e amore (joy and love), thanks to a passion FOOTHILLS, THEIR CUSTOMERS, AND EACH OTHER.”

for their new life in the foothills, their

customers, and each other. We witnessed

the latter when Sigrid brought Mari

flowers as consolation for “a tough day.”

The “awww” factor was palpable.

After a glass of local vino was poured,

my trip back to Tuscany officially began

with il fritto misto della casa—delicately fried

zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella

alongside arancini (breaded risotto balls)

and a drizzle of balsamic reduction nestled

atop fresh greens and diced tomatoes.

While it’s possible to find arancini on

menus from time to time, the addition of

fried zucchini flowers is a rarity, making

this a must-order antipasti.

My mother recently blessed me with

a parcel of melanzana (eggplant) from her

garden, so I was excited to see the oblong

purple orb featured in Amore’s di rughetta,

pomodorini e melanzane. Grilled eggplant

strips, rolled and filled with ricotta and

sun-dried tomatoes, accompanied by

cherry tomatoes and fresh-picked arugula

was a salad match made in heaven. The addition of sun-dried tomatoes gave the subtle flavors

of eggplant and ricotta a bright burst, while the arugula provided a palatable, peppery bite.

The entrée round at Italian eateries always torments me: pasta or protein? Fortunately,

I had already forwarned my girlfriend that I would be pirating the gnocchi in liguria from her

plate (she will always order gnocchi in creamy pesto), while

I savored my way through the salsicce e pollo in coppia. My

dish, sausage and chicken with peppers and onions

in tomato sauce, was hearty and satisfying, and

I knew I could enjoy any leftovers later; but

the large bowl of pillowy potato dumplings

in basil-infused cream with pine nuts and

parmesan could not be postponed. Gnocchi

in creamy pesto waits for no one, and those

that pirate from their significant others are

soon rewarded—or so the saying goes…

mangia bene!

3 Autumn-Inspired

Dishes

Friendsgiving, or seeking some easy-to-make fall recipes, the following dishes deliver

big flavors with minimal mess.

Persimmon & Pomegranate Salad

@therusticfork

Persimmons and

pomegranates

Cove goat cheese (or other goat

cheese)

Acorn Squash with Apple Stuffing

Submitted by Allie and Dan, Sacramento-based

bloggers at Love & Risotto, loveandrisotto.com,

@loveandrisotto

• 2 acorn squash, cut in half

• 2 tbsp. olive oil

• Salt and pepper

• 1 apple, chopped

• 1 box stuffing

• 1 1/2 cups water

• 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

• 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Halve the acorn squash from each pointy end. Remove

the seeds and rub with olive oil. Season with salt and

pepper. Turn squash halves over and place in a

baking dish. Quarter the apple and put in the

same baking dish. Place in oven and bake for

25-30 minutes.

Mix stuffing and water and cook on stovetop according

to package directions.

With baked apples, stuffing, and cranberries, this

stuffed acorn squash is completely tasty. In a few steps and

with very little time and energy, the perfect bite of fall is ready.

Once the acorn squash is roasted, evenly spoon in the

stuffing. Top with the baked apple, dried cranberries,

and parmesan cheese.

These bars are similar to

the Cranberry Bliss Bars you

can buy at “that one” coffee shop

but without all of the chemicals, refined sugars,

additives, and oils.

• 1 cup organic flour

• 1 tsp. organic baking powder

• 1/4 tsp. Himalayan sea salt

• 1 tbsp. fresh ginger

• 1/2 tbsp. fresh turmeric

• 1 scoop (add more if you want!) Vital

Protein’s Collagen Beauty Water

(Strawberry Lemonade)

• 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar

• 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

• 2 tbsp. organic coconut oil

• 1 organic egg

• 1 cup fresh organic cranberries

For the Frosting:

• 1 brick softened organic cream cheese

• 1 tbsp. lemon zest

• 1 tbsp. organic coconut sugar

• 1/2 cup unsweetened dried cranberries

Add flour, baking powder, and sea salt to a

medium mixing bowl, then add the fresh ginger

and turmeric and combine. Next, add 1 scoop of

collagen beauty water and combine again.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the coconut

sugar, vanilla extract, coconut oil, and egg and

whisk together (do not overmix). Combine all

ingredients together with a mixer on low speed.

Remember: Do not overmix or your dough may

Healthy Cranberry Delight Bars

come out in clumps. For the smoothest dough possible, mix everything together

slowly; no need to rush this part.

Once your dough is at the desired consistency, fold in 1 cup of fresh cranberries

until combined. Spread dough mixture evenly into a greased baking pan (I use

coconut oil spray). Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. (Do not

overbake if you want a chewy-gooey middle). Stick a toothpick in the bars to

ensure they’re done; if it comes out clean, your bars are ready!

While the bars cool, make the frosting. Combine softened cream cheese, lemon

zest, and coconut sugar in a mixer until the frosting comes out smooth.

Place the bars in the fridge for 10 minutes to thicken up a bit. Once cooled, cut

them. Top with frosting, dried cranberries, and more lemon zest. The bars will keep

in the fridge for up to one week in an airtight glass container.

Reel Poké Cove // I love restaurants where you can build your own meal. It means you get

to avoid the “I’ll have that, but without those, and add this” conversation. Reel Poké Cove in the Galleria

at Roseville lets you choose everything you want in your Poké Bowl—ensuring it’s crafted exactly to your

palate’s preference. First commit to your base, which could be salad, sushi rice, or brown rice. Second, pick

your protein(s). Options include ahi tuna, shrimp, salmon, scallops, tako, and tofu. On my visit, I chose ahi

tuna and shrimp; yes, you can do that! Step three is your “mix”—select from a spoonful of onions, cilantro,

masago, scallions, sesame oil, Hawaiian salt, edamame, and jalapeños…or all the above. Next, get saucy

with eight options—from a sriracha aioli to a slightly sweet unagi and spicy Thai chili. Your final decision,

step five, is toppings. Go crazy and add ‘em all (we won’t judge), or keep it simple like me with fried onions,

cucumbers, and avocado. For those who haven’t jumped on the poké craze quite yet, you’re missing out,

but you’re also in luck: Reel serves a variety of cooked, island-inspired plates, like garlic shrimp, onigirazu

(essentially a sushi sandwich) seared salmon, and fried “mochiko” chicken. What’s more, the family-owned

restaurant uses only California-grown produce and 100-percent sustainable seafood, so you know you’re

getting a quality meal with reel ingredients. Oh, and here’s a little secret: They make Dole Whip Floats that’ll

change your life. You’re welcome. . 1151 Galleria Boulevard, Roseville, 916-771-3989, reelpokecove.com.

THE HOT LIST

6 Best Baked Goods

compiled by STYLE STAFFERS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Who here loves the smell of freshly baked dough and the melting of buttery pastry in your mouth? All of

us at Style say “aye.” Read on for a sampling of some of our favorite goodies. In no particular order…

BJ Cinnamon

Julian’s Pâtisserie and Café

Icing on the Cupcake

Starbread

North Star Home Baking

“The Hungarian Apple

Strudel from Farmer’s

Delicatessen and Bakery

in Cameron Park is a

traditional Hungarian pastry

featuring flaky, crisp layers of

buttery phyllo dough, golden

raisins, walnuts, apples,

sugar, and cinnamon. It’s an

extra rich treat that’s become

a fast favorite (I even got my

family hooked). Each strudel

is individually handmade, and

you can taste the attention to

detail in every bite. This treat

is all kinds of wonderful.”

farmersdeli.net

Folsom’s BJ Cinnamon is

like pastry heaven. I think

I’ve tried almost all of their

baked goods (cinnamon rolls,

sticky buns, donuts, cake,

fritters—name it, I’ve had it),

but I keep going back to the

Cronuts. They’re the perfect

mix of buttery croissant

and sweet donut, and they

NEVER disappoint. The

croissant-doughnut hybrid is

great with just plain sugar and

exceptional with chocolate, or

a maple glaze. They’re best

warmed and had with a cup of

hot coffee.” 916-608-8824

“The Almond Croissant

from Julian’s Pâtisserie and

Café in Folsom is filled with a

delectable almond cream that’s

the perfect consistency—not

too thick and just enough with

every bite. The pastry itself is

nice and crisp and never dry

with layer upon layer of flaky,

buttery goodness. The outside

has a bit of the same almond

cream, topped with toasted

slivered almonds and powdered

sugar. It’s the best thing

outside of Europe! I’m guilty

of having made this a weekly

habit.” julianscafe.com

“Icing on the Cupcake is

famous for their Red Velvet

Cupcake—and for good reason.

I like getting it ‘baby-bite’ size

so I feel less guilty. (It’s warped

logic, I know.) The moist, neverdry

cupcake isn’t overly sweet

and come with a heavenly cream

cheese frosting that makes for a

spot-on confection every single

time. Red sprinkles and a tiny

red heart on top are the icing

on the cake! I’ve also heard

great things about their glutenfree

and vegan cupcakes.”

icingonthecupcake.com

“Starbread in Roseville is the

greatest Filipino bakery in the

region—possibly in existence.

Their signature Señorita

Bread dances lightly on your

taste buds—and your wallet!

What’s more, the customer

service is always on point.

These little finger rolls are

light and airy and slathered

with butter and sugar…it’s

remarkable how something so

simple can be so addictive. I’ve

downed 10 of these babies in

one go. They should seriously

come with a warning!”

starbreadca.com

“North Star Home Baking in

Rocklin is a feast for the eyes.

From artisan tarts and pastries to

breads and savory items, all of their

European and Mediterranean treats

are ‘handmade with love’ as the cute

stickers on their packaging claim.

Owner Metin Emek also shares

his love of baking with everyone

he meets. Fresh fruit galore,

their Fruit Puff cradles a rich,

homemade French pudding topped

with fresh fruits of the day that

sometimes include figs, kiwi, and all

types of berries. I’ve never seen or

tasted anything so gorgeous before.”

7505 Wise Road, Auburn, 530-823-1159,

If you want a great white wine

alternative, go for a rosé! This

particular bottle has fruity, cherry,

and strawberry characteristics and a

tart, dry finish that pairs wonderfully

with ham or turkey. It spends a little

more time on the skins prior to

fermentation, giving it a deep color

(that looks especially nice on a fall

table) and complexity, enabling it to

stand up to the meal.

This unique blend

of Syrah, Grenache,

Alicante Bouschet,

and Zinfandel has

enough red fruit and

berries to pair nicely

with the softer flavors

of Thanksgiving, but

it also has enough

structure and alcohol to help cut

through the richer, heartier items like

gravy and stuffing.

Thanksgiving Wines

By Ashleigh Gruenwald

Cheers to stuffing your face, minimal family drama, and an all-day football marathon.

But what’s Thanksgiving without a glass (or three) of wine? Make this year’s

celebration extra special by serving—or gifting your hostess—with a bottle that’s

sure to get guests talking.

Mettler Family Vineyards 2015 Lodi

Cabernet Sauvignon

ABV: 14.5%

PRICE: $24.99

Purchase: 7889 East Harney Lane, Lodi, 209-

369-3045, mettlerwine.com

This Cabernet is full of personality and

perfect for your Thanksgiving Day table.

Medium- to full-bodied, it stands up

to hearty stuffings and rich sauces but

is versatile enough to enjoy with the

holiday’s lighter fare like savory roasted

veggies and juicy turkey. It offers inviting

aromas and graceful flavors of cherry,

cranberry, and sweet oak with a rich

mouthfeel and long finish.

Fawnridge Winery

2015 Sierra Foothills Pinot Noir

ABV: 14.5%

PRICE: $30

PURCHASE: 5560 Fawnridge Road, Auburn, 530-887-9522,

fawnridgewine.com

This Pinot Noir is rare for the foothills and works in wondrous

ways. Its softer, lighter style is augmented by a greater fruit style,

making it perfect alongside poultry or served with appetizers.

introducing

Q&A WITH LOCAL COMPANIES

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

Belle Mode is a women’s consignment boutique that carries highquality

clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories and has been in

Folsom since 2002. Prior to purchasing the business earlier this year, I

was a Belle Mode customer. When the owner decided to retire, I offered

to purchase it, and here I am!

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from

the experience?

I began working summers for my grandparents when I was 15. They

taught me what it means to have a strong work ethic and how to be a

responsible employee and reliable person.

How are you involved with both the community and your

customer?

I’m proud that Belle Mode—through its loyal and generous customer

contributions after consignment—donates thousands of items each

year to organizations such as Snowline Hospice, WEAVE, and a local

women’s shelter.

What’s your hidden talent?

I’ve been blessed with a green thumb and love gardening.

What’s your biggest job perk?

The relationships that have developed with so many amazing women;

also, providing beautiful items of quality for each woman’s unique style.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

La Placita.

Belle Mode

Consignment Boutique

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

Camping at Union Valley.

KATHIE TYLER

1012 East Bidwell Street, Suite 500, Folsom,

916-983-5330, bellemodeboutique.com

What’s your favorite local event that you go to?

Outdoor concerts at Harveys Lake Tahoe.

And finally, customer service is…?

What makes any business successful.

Performance Heating

& Air Conditioning

CORREEN BERGQUIST AND CURTIS BROWN

5011 Golden Foothill Parkway, Suite 5, El Dorado Hills, 916-933-2683,

performanceheatingandairconditioning.com

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

I’m a second-generation HVAC business owner. My father was a

heating and air contractor in Burlington, Vermont, and I worked

for him at a very young age. I ended up moving to Walnut Creek

and starting my own business. In 1995, I moved the business to

El Dorado Hills and have been serving the community—both

commercial and residential—since 1995.

How are you involved with both the community and your

customer?

We’ve been serving 15 convalescent homes up and down the

Highway 99 corridor for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on

knowledge and honesty, allowing customers to make the decision

on how they would like to spend their dollars. We have also

donated time and services to the local chapter of Habitat for

Humanity.

Why is your staff the best in the business?

They’re knowledgeable about the inner workings of HVAC

systems—from large commercial boilers, to complicated controls,

and new communication technology, all the way down to the basic

air flow needs of residential homes. We pride ourselves on being a

one-stop shop for all your heating and air conditioning needs and

are one of the few companies left who will "service" your HVAC

system—not just tell you that you need to replace it.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

Our favorite is The Independent (especially when we get Jake as

our waiter). Bricks, Jack Russell Brewery, and Cascada are also

great.

And finally, customer service is…?

Having the ability to share a friendly voice and handle a customer’s

needs. Also, giving clients value and being available to answer their

questions and fix the problem is imperative in this industry.

DO YOU KNOW THAT OUR EDITORIAL IS NOT PAID FOR, NOR CAN IT BE PURCHASED?

In fact, our Introducing and Eat & Drink section reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at megan@stylemg.com. Once we

determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
