Style Magazine Folsom and El Dorado Hills November 2018

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!

COVER: Top Chefs: Dan Moore, Michael Liu, <strong>and</strong> Frank Visconti.<br />



editor’s note<br />

F<br />

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

it began, some of us had never met <strong>and</strong> others were casual acquaintances. Fast<br />

forward to <strong>2018</strong> <strong>and</strong> we’re a close-knit group—affectionately known as the<br />

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

passing of a pet, marriages, breakups, career changes, <strong>and</strong> too many bottles<br />

of wine. Though the books are what initially bonded us—<strong>and</strong> still act as the<br />

reason behind our monthly meetings—it’s the laughter, deep conversations, <strong>and</strong> connections<br />

with one another that have linked us for life.<br />

Just like any gathering, our time together wouldn’t be complete without food—<strong>and</strong> wine—<br />

<strong>and</strong> lots of it. Switching houses <strong>and</strong> hosts every month means we’ve gotten to experience<br />

each person’s cooking style—from the member who owns a restaurant <strong>and</strong> serves wood-fired<br />

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

another who prefers serving heat-<strong>and</strong>-serve, semi-homemade suppers, <strong>and</strong> yours truly, who<br />

uses it as an opportunity to<br />

get creative in the kitchen,<br />

then cross my fingers, <strong>and</strong><br />

hope for the best.<br />

But the beauty of our<br />

group, <strong>and</strong> any group of<br />

true friends for that matter,<br />

is we’re not judging each<br />

other based on the spread’s<br />

success (though, not gonna<br />

lie, my girls can cook!);<br />

rather, it’s the stories<br />

shared <strong>and</strong> socializing<br />

surrounding the meal that<br />

bring us all closer.<br />

My point is, food is more<br />

than just fuel. It’s a social<br />

centerpiece <strong>and</strong> provides<br />

a foundation for some of our fondest, funniest, <strong>and</strong> most-talked about memories. And in this<br />

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

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

with their own signature cooking style <strong>and</strong> skill set. Though the types of cuisine they dish out<br />

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

them, including their food philosophies, favorite restaurants, top cooking tips, <strong>and</strong> how they<br />

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

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

out Taste (page 66) for a h<strong>and</strong>ful of autumn-inspired recipes from area food bloggers that are<br />

easy peasy to prepare, halfway healthy, <strong>and</strong> guaranteed to please; <strong>and</strong> Sip on This (page 78) for<br />

“Food is the ingredient<br />

that binds us<br />

together.”—Unknown<br />

7 local wines that’ll be the talk of this year’s Turkey<br />

Day table.<br />

For some friendly reminders on what to be<br />

thankful for, The 10 Spot by Tara Mendanha (page<br />

20) has a dozen reasons that revolve around where<br />

we live. Idyllic climate? Check. Top-tier schools?<br />

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

community comes first <strong>and</strong> appreciate the people, places, <strong>and</strong> things that make it so special.<br />

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

good food, <strong>and</strong> good times. Cheers!<br />

What’s your<br />

favorite meal<br />

in town?<br />

“I love a good taco, <strong>and</strong> the<br />

Crispy Taco at 3 Hermanos<br />

Taqueria in Lincoln is SO<br />

GOOD. Shredded chicken,<br />

cheese, sour cream, <strong>and</strong> tons<br />

of guacamole. They’re super<br />

messy but so worth it.”—Julie<br />

Ryan<br />

“My husb<strong>and</strong> <strong>and</strong> I love going to<br />

Inchin’s Bamboo Garden in <strong>Folsom</strong>.<br />

Their take on Indian-Chinese<br />

cuisine (yes, that’s a thing!)<br />

gets us salivating the moment<br />

we hit Prairie City Road. A<br />

perfect meal here consists<br />

of Pan-Fried Chili Fish, Burnt<br />

Garlic Chili Rice, <strong>and</strong> Garlic<br />

Pepper Chicken— we love our<br />

chili <strong>and</strong> garlic as much as we love<br />

Inchin’s!”—Tara Mendanha<br />

“The Yolo Mango Burrito at<br />

Dos Coyotes Border Café with<br />

pasilla chile salsa is my go-to<br />

lunch—not too heavy, not too<br />

light, <strong>and</strong> it has fruit in it!”<br />

—Gary Zsigo<br />


“The <strong>Style</strong> Roll from Suishin<br />

Sushi, of course! Yum, yum,<br />

yum!”—Terry Carroll<br />

“The Thai Seafood Fat Pot at<br />

Fat’s Asia Bistro is the perfect<br />

wintertime nosh. Spicy, creamy,<br />

<strong>and</strong> studded with seafood<br />

<strong>and</strong> veggies in a rich coconut<br />

curry sauce, it packs just<br />

enough heat, sweet, <strong>and</strong><br />

sustenance to turn my hungry<br />

frown upside down.” —Megan<br />

Wiskus<br />

“The all-you-can-eat sushi<br />

lunch at Hisui Sushi rocks. It<br />

offers a variety of things to<br />

choose from <strong>and</strong> fills me up<br />

for the rest of the day…<strong>and</strong><br />

beyond”—Debbie Newell-<br />

What are some secrets to making<br />

perfect mac & cheese?<br />

HawkinsSchool.com | 118 Woodmere Road, <strong>Folsom</strong> | 916.355.1900<br />

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

going to bake your mac & cheese, however, it needs to be less<br />

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

sauce—which should include cream, butter, flour, <strong>and</strong> milk—is<br />

also key. Next, add whatever high-quality cheese <strong>and</strong> seasonings<br />

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

jalapeños, etc.<br />

How do I know which tire br<strong>and</strong><br />

<strong>and</strong> model is best?<br />

When choosing tires, it’s<br />

important to consider how<br />

many miles you drive per year,<br />

what kind of driving you do, <strong>and</strong><br />

what your vehicle requirement<br />

is for size, speed rating, etc. I<br />

would recommend seeking a<br />

professional shop to find the<br />

best ones <strong>and</strong> avail of amenities<br />

like free rotation <strong>and</strong> tire repair.<br />

Nine-year-old Sofia Sanchez<br />

wants to change the face of<br />

beauty. Born in Ukraine, she’s<br />

one of many children with<br />

Down syndrome (DS) who are ab<strong>and</strong>oned<br />

in orphanages. Her future might have been<br />

bleak—but one day, fate intervened.<br />

At first, Jennifer Varanini Sanchez had<br />

no intention of adopting a child. She already<br />

had three boys of her own, the youngest of<br />

whom, Joaquín, has DS. But after donating<br />

online to help children with DS get adopted,<br />

she was sent a photo of the child she had<br />

supported: Sofia. “I couldn’t take my eyes<br />

off her,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘we helped<br />

her find a family, but why can’t we be that<br />

family?’” The adoption process proved<br />

far from easy, but in the end, Sofia came<br />

home to Placer County—making them “The<br />

Sanchez Six.”<br />

It wasn’t until a few years later that the<br />

Sanchez’ realized Sofia had something<br />

special. Her social media photos started to<br />

garner public attention, <strong>and</strong> well-known<br />

photographers began asking to take<br />

her picture. Then, she began modeling<br />

for major br<strong>and</strong>s, including Target <strong>and</strong><br />

American Girl. A video she posted online,<br />

in which she proudly declares, “I can do<br />

anything I want!” went viral, <strong>and</strong> she<br />

was even invited to speak on national<br />

talk shows, including The Today Show. For<br />

Sofia, now a spokesperson <strong>and</strong> advocate<br />

for those with DS, it’s about showing<br />

other kids like her that they can lead<br />

happy, fulfilling lives. “[DS] isn’t scary,”<br />

she says. “We help people to be more<br />

accepting—to be kind.”<br />

And her mom couldn’t be prouder.<br />

“Sofia opened my eyes to the beauty of<br />

imperfection,” she shares.<br />

Love Where You Live<br />

The 10 Spot by TARA MENDANHA<br />

It’s no secret that we live in one of the best parts<br />

of California—dare we say all of America…? With<br />

this l<strong>and</strong>’s bounty, beauty, <strong>and</strong> beautiful people,<br />

there’s sooo much to be thankful for—including<br />

you dear readers!<br />

Our towns constantly make the best places<br />

to raise a family list. The recent report by<br />

WalletHub named <strong>Folsom</strong>, <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> <strong>Hills</strong>,<br />

Roseville, <strong>and</strong> Rocklin in the top 15 spots to raise<br />

a family in California. Given that we have topnotch<br />

schools <strong>and</strong> more than capable public<br />

servants <strong>and</strong> offices, we’re set for a lifetime of<br />

contented living.<br />

Gold Country is the portion of l<strong>and</strong> from Sierra Nevada to<br />

Sacramento Valley <strong>and</strong> we’re living in the heart of it.<br />

Named after the Gold Rush that initiated the largest mass<br />

immigration in the U.S., said Gold Rush made our little<br />

corner culturally diverse <strong>and</strong> rich in history. It’s also what<br />

catapulted San Francisco into the metropolis it is today.<br />

You’re welcome, SF.<br />

Let’s talk small businesses. Many here live the American<br />

dream, thanks to a market that’s open-minded <strong>and</strong> willing to<br />

shop small. There are numerous creative <strong>and</strong> groundbreaking<br />

businesses surrounding us, covering industries like food, finance,<br />

fitness, <strong>and</strong> more. Whatever the need, chances are, there’s a<br />

friendly neighborhood business that provides it.<br />

Location, location, location. If you hadn’t noticed,<br />

we’re bang in between the ocean <strong>and</strong> the mountains,<br />

equidistant from sky <strong>and</strong> sea. Picturesque towns,<br />

endless forest with astounding wildlife, azure blue<br />

lakes, <strong>and</strong> towering snow-capped mountains dot our<br />

l<strong>and</strong>scape. Whether Tahoe, Yosemite, or the Pacific—<br />

they’re all a stone’s throw away!<br />

With over 40 farmers’ markets in the region <strong>and</strong><br />

countless farms, ranches, <strong>and</strong> vineyards, it’s no wonder<br />

we live a farm-to-fork lifestyle. The Sacramento region<br />

produces the majority of the rice, almonds, caviar, tomatoes,<br />

<strong>and</strong> grapes (many Napa Valley wines use grapes grown in<br />

our region) we consume. The fall foods we’re now devouring<br />

(pumpkins, pears, persimmons, or plums anyone?) also add<br />

to this cornucopia.<br />

Did you know California has the highest number of craft breweries in<br />

the country with more than 900 operating across the state, including<br />

67 (<strong>and</strong> counting) here in the region? Local breweries <strong>and</strong> wineries<br />

consistently dominate competitions like the California State Fair. Most<br />

ingredients are locally sourced to form a self-sustaining industry that<br />

we’re very, very grateful for.<br />

Also noteworthy is our local arts <strong>and</strong> cultural scene. Craft, heritage, <strong>and</strong><br />

music festivals along with county fairs happen year-round. Literally.<br />

Just take a look at our Calendar section each month <strong>and</strong> you’ll see<br />

what we’re talking about. There’s no dearth of things to do, see, <strong>and</strong><br />

experience.<br />

FOLSOM<br />

Cat Haven in Central California<br />

helped rescue Ophelia—a fourmonth-old<br />

bobcat who was a<br />

relinquished illegal ex-pet—<strong>and</strong> she’s currently a resident<br />

at the <strong>Folsom</strong> City Zoo Sanctuary where she lives a happy,<br />

healthy life. Remember: Wild animals can be affected by<br />

humans; if you see one that’s injured or orphaned, contact a<br />

professional wildlife rehabber to get them the care they need<br />


by Guy Easterling<br />

We grow some of the most diverse, high-quality crops<br />

around <strong>and</strong> enjoy mild temperatures, thanks to our<br />

Mediterranean climate. With relatively moderate<br />

winters, sweltering summers, fall colors, <strong>and</strong> spring<br />

flowers, we get a taste of each distinct season<br />

here without too many of the natural disasters<br />

that plague other parts of the country. Knock<br />

on wood.<br />

If there are two things we love, it’s the great<br />

outdoors <strong>and</strong> our pets. With so many<br />

trails <strong>and</strong> parks (thank you, parks <strong>and</strong><br />

rec departments!), pets <strong>and</strong> people<br />

alike tend to lead remarkably<br />

active lifestyles away from the<br />

pollution <strong>and</strong> chaos of big cities.<br />

Biking, hiking, roller skating—<br />

we know how to keep healthy<br />

<strong>and</strong> happy.<br />

What’s the point of it all if<br />

it can’t be shared? Enter our<br />

beloved local nonprofits <strong>and</strong><br />

charities. We’re proud of each<br />

of them <strong>and</strong> come the annual<br />

Big Day of Giving, our generosity knows no bounds. We’ve already<br />

collectively donated over $30 million to our favorite causes. Our<br />

cups runneth over in every possible way, <strong>and</strong> we’re thankful that we<br />

get to share it with one another.<br />

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

thing who didn’t have the proper training <strong>and</strong> therefore became imprinted, meaning<br />

she recognizes another animal, person, or thing as her parent <strong>and</strong> cannot be<br />

released back into her natural habitat.<br />

Tracy<br />

Lauth<br />

Called to Create<br />


Award-winning plein air artist Tracy Lauth has roots rich in California’s<br />

Gold Rush history. Growing up in Salinas—where her family settled<br />

in the mid-1800s to seek their fortune—Lauth continued living<br />

in the Bay Area after graduating from the International Culinary<br />

Center. The former executive chef <strong>and</strong> owner of Black Tie Fine<br />

Catering eventually traded her pots <strong>and</strong> pans in for paintbrushes<br />

<strong>and</strong> turned her detail-oriented, artistic eye to canvas—capturing<br />

majestic cities <strong>and</strong> l<strong>and</strong>scapes filled with emotion <strong>and</strong> light. Since relocating with her<br />

husb<strong>and</strong> to Placerville, Lauth has held solo exhibits throughout the area at Marshall<br />

Medical Center <strong>and</strong> the <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> County Board of Supervisors office, <strong>and</strong> shown her work<br />

at Harris Center’s Bank of America Gallery <strong>and</strong> numerous juried competitions. “Being a<br />

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

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

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

the movies. I live a bright, fulfilling life.”<br />

Poppy Field After Spring Rain<br />


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

in, <strong>and</strong> was exclusively a studio painter. When an opportunity arose to enter a plein air<br />

competition, I took a chance. Painting outdoors was amazing; I was seeing everything<br />

in its natural state: colors, shadows, values, tones, <strong>and</strong> life! I painted the same scene five<br />

Over Placerville<br />

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

now travel to competitions, paint outs, <strong>and</strong> symposiums to study <strong>and</strong> hone my skill. I paint<br />

with oil <strong>and</strong> use brushes, fingers, sponges, <strong>and</strong> palette knives.<br />


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

look out the window, <strong>and</strong> see a kaleidoscope of colors <strong>and</strong> light. My paintings often begin<br />

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

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

breathing room.<br />


WORK?<br />

TL: The world is a beautiful place filled with amazing people.<br />

My obsession with food <strong>and</strong> art has taken me on some great<br />

adventures. Most recently, I spent a month traveling solo in<br />

Greece, going to culinary school in Athens <strong>and</strong> Poros, <strong>and</strong> visiting<br />

the ruins <strong>and</strong> smaller isl<strong>and</strong>s to photograph <strong>and</strong> sketch for<br />

paintings. The colors of the Mediterranean were stunning, but the<br />

people <strong>and</strong> cuisine were even better.<br />



TL: Identifying my own personal style [as]something that I love<br />

<strong>and</strong> embrace. Plein air allows me to be me. It’s about painting<br />

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

amazing.<br />

16 Holiday Survival Tips<br />


Not to sound like the Grinch, but everyone<br />

knows the holidays aren’t without a bit of<br />

stress. Thankfully, whether induced by<br />

family, finances, or falling off track with<br />

your health goals, there is a light at the end<br />

of the tunnel. Stay on track with these helpful tips from<br />

local experts on how to survive the holidays.<br />


Don’t Do It All<br />

1 “Simplify any area of your life that you can <strong>and</strong> let go of the idea<br />

that you have to be a superhuman. You don’t have to do it all <strong>and</strong><br />

be everything to everyone.”—Donna Webb, Instructor, THE STUDIO<br />

Martial Arts & Fitness<br />

A Gift to Cheers<br />

2 “I usually buy medium-priced bottles of wine by the case,<br />

decorate them festively <strong>and</strong> inexpensively, <strong>and</strong> gift them to friends <strong>and</strong><br />

neighbors along with a h<strong>and</strong>written note telling them why they’re so<br />

special to me.”—Renae Linder, MSW, LCSW, Vice President <strong>and</strong> Owner,<br />

Linder Psychiatric Group<br />

Top Traditions<br />

3 “Make a 'must-do' list of the activities, events, <strong>and</strong> traditions<br />

that mean the most to you <strong>and</strong> your family <strong>and</strong> ensure everyone gets<br />

something they enjoy on the calendar. Then schedule those events now<br />

while you have control of your calendar. As other activities <strong>and</strong> events<br />

pop up, only participate if your personal <strong>and</strong> family schedule allows.”—<br />

Ann Vezey, Corporate Group Exercise Director, Spare Time Clubs<br />

Moments of Self-Care<br />

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

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

are endless!”—Kayle Torres, MA, LMFT<br />

Love Your People<br />

5 “Take a moment to remind yourself that the most important part<br />

of the holidays is the coming together with the people who matter the<br />

most to you <strong>and</strong> how lucky we are to have that gift.”—Donna Webb,<br />

Instructor, THE STUDIO Martial Arts & Fitness<br />


Press Pause<br />

6 “Take some time for mindfulness. Sit down occasionally, close<br />

your eyes, do some deep breathing, <strong>and</strong> let your mind drift without<br />

dem<strong>and</strong>ing any direction or response. Everything can be go, go, go, so<br />

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

“Forever Young” on SiriusXM Radio<br />

The True Meaning<br />

7 “Lean in to the deeper part of what the holiday means, usually<br />

it’s based on something that means peace, joy, or blessing—which<br />

we all need more of.”—Lance Hahn, Senior Pastor, Bridgeway<br />

Christian Church<br />

Giving vs. Receiving<br />

8 “Give something to someone with these two guidelines: First,<br />

give to someone who doesn’t know you. Second, give to someone<br />

who can’t repay you. Reciprocal giving is great—we lean strongly<br />

into that at Christmas—but giving to someone who can’t repay<br />

you tests the belief that it is indeed more blessed to give than to<br />

receive.”—Brad Franklin, Pastor <strong>and</strong> Storyteller, Lakeside Church<br />

Count Your Blessings<br />

9 “Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have to<br />

combat any negative thinking. Express gratitude for the things<br />

you have, <strong>and</strong> do something for those less fortunate.”—Therese<br />

Sorrentino, LMFT<br />


Freezer Meals<br />

10 “Fall is a great time for fresh fruits <strong>and</strong> veggies. Cook <strong>and</strong><br />

freeze meals now to enjoy fall’s freshness during the season’s<br />

busiest times.”—Ann Vezey, Corporate Group Exercise Director,<br />

Spare Time Clubs<br />

Food is Fuel<br />

1 “Sticking to a healthy diet is a key component of managing<br />

stress. Giving your body proper food will give you the energy you<br />

need.”—Rachael Dardano, Owner <strong>and</strong> Holistic Health Coach,<br />

Internal Wisdom<br />

Balance Your Plate<br />

12 “When you do sit down for a holiday meal, load your plate<br />

with veggies <strong>and</strong> protein first. Hopefully your first round fills you<br />

Dessert Picks<br />

13 “Pick your three favorite desserts ahead of time <strong>and</strong> tell<br />

yourself you’ll stick to only those. This will help with portion control<br />

<strong>and</strong> keep you from grazing the table!”—Kori Polee, Nutritionist <strong>and</strong><br />

Exercise Physiologist, Roseville Health & Wellness Center<br />

Hydrate<br />

14 “Cool winter air carries less moisture than warm air does,<br />

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

<strong>and</strong> coffee are dehydrating, so drink extra water if you enjoy an<br />

adult beverage or caffeine.”—Lauren Mathewson, ND, Revolutions<br />

Naturopathic<br />


Sneaky Steps<br />

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

calories. Examples are speed-walking through the mall while<br />

shopping for holiday gifts, parking further away, <strong>and</strong> taking<br />

the stairs instead of elevators <strong>and</strong> escalators.”—Lisa Robinson,<br />

General Manager, Roseville Health & Wellness Center<br />

Fitness Friends<br />

16 “Find a fitness<br />

buddy or fitness<br />

support group of any<br />

kind—whether it’s a<br />

friend who will keep<br />

you accountable,<br />

a running partner,<br />

gym buddy, group to<br />

Raley’s Food<br />

For Families<br />

Taking a Bite Out of Hunger<br />


You’ve likely seen the small<br />

collection boxes at the<br />

cash registers at Raley’s,<br />

Bel Air, <strong>and</strong> Food Source<br />

checkout st<strong>and</strong>s that say:<br />

Donate to Raley’s Food For Families.<br />

Have you wondered what happens to the<br />

money given (via cash or card) in this nopressure<br />

appeal for help? A lot, as it turns<br />

out.<br />

Raley’s founded the nonprofit Raley’s<br />

Food For Families 32 years ago to help<br />

feed people designated as “food insecure,”<br />

meaning they don’t have access to enough<br />

food for healthy living. The nonprofit’s<br />

mission is “to end hunger locally by<br />

providing fresh, healthy food to those who<br />

need it most.”<br />

Initially a canned food drive, Raley’s<br />

Food For Families now provides literally<br />

millions of pounds of nutritious food each<br />

year to hundreds of thous<strong>and</strong>s of hungry<br />

families in Raley’s service areas—from<br />

Salinas, Yreka, <strong>and</strong> Northern Nevada,<br />

to <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> County, Placer County, <strong>and</strong><br />

beyond. The need is staggering: As of 2015,<br />

in Sacramento County alone, more than<br />

240,000 people did not have enough to eat.<br />

The specter of hunger is especially<br />

acute during the holiday season, when food<br />

becomes a focus of celebration. During the<br />

last two months of the year—beginning<br />

<strong>November</strong> 4 this year—the organization<br />

holds their annual Holiday Bag Drive<br />

marked by displays of nutritious groceries<br />

at checkout st<strong>and</strong>s. For a $10 donation,<br />

supplemented by Raley’s, a family will<br />

receive a bag of food valued at $30 <strong>and</strong><br />

enough for 20 meals from such items as<br />

fresh fruit <strong>and</strong> vegetables, milk, canned<br />

tuna <strong>and</strong> green beans, diced tomatoes,<br />

pasta sauce, whole-grain<br />

pasta, peanut butter, Raisin<br />

Bran, <strong>and</strong> applesauce. “We’re<br />

very particular about the<br />

products we put into the<br />

bags,” says Becca Whitman,<br />

the program’s executive<br />

director <strong>and</strong> the community<br />

relations manager for<br />

Raley’s. “We focus on<br />

nutrition <strong>and</strong> health.” No<br />

turkeys? Not any longer,<br />

because other sources offer<br />

them. These bag donations<br />

NEW TO<br />


add up, too. Last year, the Holiday Bag Drive provided more than 3.7<br />

million meals.<br />

Four years ago, Raley’s Food For Families introduced Summer<br />

Fresh Drive, a program that raises funds to make more fresh fruits<br />

<strong>and</strong> vegetables available to schoolchildren whose summer break also<br />

means a break from free meals. This past summer, the organization,<br />

in partnership with the Sacramento Public Library, held farmers’<br />

markets at local library lunch program sites <strong>and</strong> donated bags of fresh<br />

produce to over 500 families.<br />

The success of Raley’s Food For Families relies in part on its unique<br />

distribution system. Raley’s doesn’t dole out food. Instead, it partners<br />

with county food banks aligned with Feeding America—including<br />

Placer Food Bank <strong>and</strong> Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services,<br />

<strong>and</strong> the agencies they both support—placing all the donations into<br />

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

to the needs of the agencies <strong>and</strong> communities they serve. “We’re a<br />

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

to the experts <strong>and</strong> provide them with the resources to do good.”<br />

3 Hot Fireplace Ideas<br />


Afireplace is oftentimes the primary focal point of a living room,<br />

providing warmth, comfort, <strong>and</strong> structure. Still, there can be challenges<br />

when it comes to designing your living space around one. How close<br />

can the furniture be to the heat <strong>and</strong> flames? Is there a “best” option<br />

for placement of the sofa? What if there are competing focal points,<br />

such as in a room with a terrific view? Here are a few design tips <strong>and</strong><br />

tricks that will help when faced with such decisions.<br />

Mendota Hearth DXV45 DT4 Fireplace<br />

A<br />

so symmetrical, this configuration makes<br />

balance fairly easy to achieve <strong>and</strong> provides<br />

a cozy ambiance to the room.<br />

But what if the room <strong>and</strong> fireplace is<br />

on a much gr<strong>and</strong>er scale? If that’s the case,<br />

you would want to “pull it back,” allowing<br />

for larger furniture arrangements echoing<br />

the larger scale <strong>and</strong> to avoid having the<br />

space seem cavernous. In room (B), proper<br />

balance is the result of high ceilings <strong>and</strong><br />

windows being offset by the extra-large<br />

yet simple, non-fussy furniture selection<br />

<strong>and</strong> the oh-so-h<strong>and</strong>some fireplace that<br />

assumes the role of artwork.<br />


A not uncommon dilemma when<br />

it comes to designing your room<br />

around a fireplace is the dueling focal point<br />

issue. This occurs when there’s a second or<br />

even third focus drawing your attention,<br />

such as large picture windows with<br />

breathtaking views. In these instances, it’s<br />

often best to take your cue from the old<br />

adage: “Who says we can’t have it all?”<br />

Mendota Hearth FullView 41 Decor Wide Grac<br />

Achieving a sense of balance is<br />

always a primary goal of good design.<br />

Sometimes this is easy to accomplish, as in<br />

the photo above where two comfy chairs<br />

flank the fireplace <strong>and</strong> the sofa sits directly<br />

opposite the fireplace with a conveniently<br />

placed coffee table in front. Because it’s<br />

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

allows for a full appreciation of your fireplace, along with spectacular<br />

views, is completely doable. The trick is all in flexibility; there are no<br />

rules. Scoot that chair around at just the right angle to check out the<br />

view while still enjoying the warmth <strong>and</strong> comfort of your beautiful<br />

fireplace.<br />

Alternatively, if your sofa faces the view while being perpendicular<br />

to the fireplace, try placing a couple of easily moved or swivel chairs<br />

opposite the sofa to allow for the ultimate in viewer options <strong>and</strong><br />

comfort.<br />

3TAKE A SEAT<br />

While most often a fireplace does provide the primary focal<br />

point of a room, sometimes one is there “just because,” hidden<br />

away in a small secret nook or adding an extra architectural element<br />

where none is expected. Furniture arrangement may seem like a<br />

moot point in such a case, but the opposite is true. Though the seating<br />

may be minimal, it becomes more important than ever to provide a<br />

“l<strong>and</strong>ing pad” with at least one chair or bench so that one or two people<br />

can sit <strong>and</strong> enjoy such<br />

a treasure.<br />

So, let the fun<br />

begin, <strong>and</strong> let common<br />

sense <strong>and</strong> comfort be<br />

your guide.<br />

15 TOP CHEFS<br />

Michael Liu<br />

Hisui Sushi, 25004 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 107,<br />

<strong>Folsom</strong>, 916-985-7778, hisuisushi.com<br />

Michael Liu was born into the restaurant<br />

industry. His parents owned Chinese<br />

restaurants in the Bay Area, <strong>and</strong> he often<br />

helped out. At 16, he got his first official job as a<br />

dishwasher at a Japanese restaurant <strong>and</strong>—after<br />

learning <strong>and</strong> honing his skills from some of the<br />

eatery’s amazing chefs—went on to become the<br />

successful owner <strong>and</strong> chef at <strong>Folsom</strong> favorite<br />

Hisui.<br />

First memory of food: My gr<strong>and</strong>ma’s cooking.<br />

Since my parents were busy with the restaurant<br />

business, most of the time my gr<strong>and</strong>ma would<br />

prepare homemade meals for my brothers<br />

<strong>and</strong> me. I loved her beef noodle soup <strong>and</strong><br />

rice porridge. I still don’t know how she makes<br />

them, but I know no one can make them as<br />

perfectly as her.<br />

Food philosophy: Combining traditional<br />

cuisine with a creative <strong>and</strong> contemporary flair<br />

using only the freshest, healthiest ingredients.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: An engineer. I went<br />

to school for it <strong>and</strong> got a degree but found my<br />

passion in food. I love what I do <strong>and</strong> ended up<br />

being really good at it!<br />

Top cooking tip: Good food is actually pretty<br />

simple. It always starts with the origin of your<br />

ingredients; fresh, natural ingredients make just<br />

about everything taste way better.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: When my wife <strong>and</strong><br />

I visited South Korea, Taiwan, <strong>and</strong> Japan, we<br />

had the most amazing food experiences. The<br />

street markets during the day, the vibrant night<br />

markets, fish markets, <strong>and</strong> the food festivals—<br />

there’s such a diversity to the food they offer,<br />

<strong>and</strong> it was a true food paradise.<br />

One food I’ll never get behind: Overcooked<br />

cabbage. The smell is disgusting!<br />

Guilty pleasure food: Ice cream.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work with: Fish sauce.<br />

It’s an umami bomb that gives depth <strong>and</strong><br />

richness to sauces <strong>and</strong> main dishes.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate: A perfectly<br />

seasoned homemade pork chop with potatoes<br />

<strong>and</strong> veggies—<strong>and</strong>, of course, ice cream for<br />

dessert.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Sake with sushi. Sake is<br />

very versatile <strong>and</strong> complements many cuisines.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: Alex<strong>and</strong>er’s<br />

Steakhouse in Cupertino. It’s an American<br />

steakhouse with a Japanese flair. I love their<br />

dry-aged tomahawk chop, truffle mac & cheese,<br />

<strong>and</strong> complimentary cotton c<strong>and</strong>y.<br />

You’d never know it, but: I love playing video<br />

games.<br />

Karen Holmes<br />

Karen’s Bakery <strong>and</strong> Café, 705 Gold Lake Drive,<br />

<strong>Folsom</strong>, 916-985-2665, karensbakery.com<br />

Taro Arai<br />

Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, various<br />

locations, mikunisushi.com<br />

The self-proclaimed happiest<br />

chef ever, Taro Arai learned<br />

how to cook from watching<br />

his mother <strong>and</strong> reading<br />

books. When the raw fish<br />

aficionado <strong>and</strong> hailed “Lord<br />

of Rice” isn’t rolling delicious<br />

concoctions from the sea, you<br />

can probably find him doing<br />

charity work—or devouring<br />

his mother’s homemade<br />

dashi.<br />

First memory of food: I<br />

grew up eating my mom’s<br />

home-cooked meals, so<br />

maybe a bowl of rice with a<br />

raw egg, from one of our own<br />

chickens, or furikake, which is<br />

dried fish <strong>and</strong> vegetables.<br />

Food philosophy: I follow<br />

the three “F”s: fresh, freestyle,<br />

<strong>and</strong> freaky!<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:<br />

Working for a charitable<br />

organization, which I already<br />

do part-time at the Mikuni<br />

Charitable Foundation.<br />

Top cooking tip: There are<br />

no rules, so just cook from<br />

your heart.<br />

The best thing I ever ate:<br />

Tai (sea bream) sashimi in<br />

my hometown of Amakusa,<br />

Japan.<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

behind: I’ve traveled all over<br />

the world looking for one<br />

thing that I didn’t like, but I<br />

haven’t found it yet—I like<br />

everything!<br />

Guilty pleasure food: I never<br />

feel guilty.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work<br />

with: Fresh fish.<br />

For dinner last night, I<br />

ate: Sōmen noodles from<br />

Nagasaki, Japan, with my<br />

mom’s homemade dashi.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Nigiri<br />

<strong>and</strong> sake.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong><br />

dish: I have too many friends<br />

in this field—I like all of the<br />

restaurants!<br />

You’d never know it, but:<br />

I used to be very shorttempered,<br />

but now I’m full<br />

of joy.<br />

At 12 years old, Karen Holmes was preparing three-course<br />

meals—that included the ambitious Baked Alaska—for her<br />

parents. Given her Danish lineage—where she says that<br />

baking is part of your life regardless of age or gender—<br />

perhaps it’s no surprise that she’s the accomplished chef<br />

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

Duncan, recently received a nod from Bon Appétit for his<br />

restaurant Call in Denver.)<br />

First memory of food: Plum-flavored baby food.<br />

Food philosophy: Food should be adventurous, but also<br />

personal. I love trying new things, but I also like food that<br />

people would just come over to your house to eat; the<br />

whole micro-tweezer food movement isn’t for me.<br />

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

Top cooking tip: Be adventurous, <strong>and</strong> don’t be afraid to<br />

try something new. We all burn stuff—you can always try it<br />

again.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: It was a dish in a very complex<br />

broth with fresh peas, lots of dill, <strong>and</strong> a sous-vide egg.<br />

The peas were raw <strong>and</strong> the warm yolk flooded the whole<br />

thing—it was the sexiest, most delicious thing I’ve ever<br />

eaten.<br />

One food I’ll never get behind: I just can’t deal with<br />

eggplant.<br />

Guilty pleasure food: Chips <strong>and</strong> salty things—I love the<br />

salt <strong>and</strong> pepper kettle chips.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work with: If you took everything<br />

away from me, I’d be the most bummed if you took away<br />

produce. Produce is a miracle.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate: I went to eat dinner at the<br />

house of some friends. They’re really good cooks <strong>and</strong> made<br />

Cornish game hen with Cuban seasoning.<br />

Favorite food pairing: A lot of people like charcuterie <strong>and</strong><br />

cheese, but I love charcuterie <strong>and</strong> dried fruit.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: Anything at Manfreds & Din<br />

in Denmark—they’re constantly changing the menu.<br />

You’d never know it, but: I race Porsches.<br />

15 TOP CHEFS<br />

Frank Visconti<br />

Visconti’s Ristorante, 2700 East Bidwell<br />

Street, Suite 700, <strong>Folsom</strong>, 916-983-5181,<br />

viscontisristorante.com<br />

He’s twirled pies in the Bay<br />

Area <strong>and</strong> sharpened his Italian<br />

culinary skills in Chicago, but<br />

one thing Frank Visconti hasn’t<br />

done is perhaps a blessing:<br />

He’s never deviated from<br />

cooking Italian food—having<br />

done it now for 33 years. He’s<br />

just as committed to the love<br />

behind the plate as he is to<br />

what’s on it, which may be why<br />

his restaurant has become<br />

such a staple in <strong>Folsom</strong>.<br />

First memory of food:<br />

Thinking I was a chef by<br />

playing with my mom’s pots<br />

<strong>and</strong> pans when I was around<br />

five years old.<br />

Food philosophy: To pass on<br />

the tradition of homemade<br />

food made with love <strong>and</strong><br />

passion for not only the meal<br />

itself, but also what that<br />

entails—the meaning of family.<br />

Italians are known for growing<br />

our own fruits <strong>and</strong> vegetables<br />

while making all of our meals<br />

from scratch with the family,<br />

<strong>and</strong> it’s a way for us to get<br />

together <strong>and</strong> bond.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A<br />

Ferrari mechanic.<br />

Top cooking tip: Cook with<br />

pride <strong>and</strong> fashion.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: My<br />

gr<strong>and</strong>mother’s veal rollatini.<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

behind: Liver.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work<br />

with: Garlic <strong>and</strong> white wine.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate: A<br />

ribeye steak.<br />

Favorite food pairing:<br />

Eggplant alla mama <strong>and</strong><br />

gnocchi alla vodka.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish:<br />

The King Arthur cut at House<br />

of Prime Rib in San Francsico.<br />

You’d never know it, but:<br />

Other than cooking, I’m<br />

passionate about cars <strong>and</strong><br />

construction.<br />

Nick Dedier<br />

Milestone, 4359 Town Center Boulevard,<br />

Suite 116, <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> <strong>Hills</strong>, 916-934-0790,<br />

milestonerestaurantedh.com<br />

Nick Dedier has traveled leaps <strong>and</strong> bounds<br />

from his college days of working as a casual<br />

server <strong>and</strong> even as a dishwasher at Strings<br />

Italian Café. From attending the Culinary<br />

Institute of America in New York <strong>and</strong> holding<br />

varying positions at numerous Michelin star<br />

restaurants—Daniel Boulud Brasserie, Gary<br />

Danko, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group—to<br />

working with Auberge Resorts, it’s safe to say<br />

this superstar has an impressive résumé—<strong>and</strong><br />

some serious culinary chops. Decorative<br />

background aside, however, his true joy lies<br />

in supporting small businesses by cooking<br />

solid, locally sourced, seasonal food for the<br />

community.<br />

First memory of food: Making scrambled eggs<br />

with my mom <strong>and</strong> Aunt Jan. I learned on my<br />

own that the more cream I added the better<br />

they were.<br />

Food philosophy: Always cook like you're<br />

cooking for family <strong>and</strong> friends, not customers<br />

or the bottom line. Keep it classic, not trendy;<br />

rich <strong>and</strong> valuable, not precious <strong>and</strong> pricey.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A fishing guide.<br />

Top cooking tip: Chefs only become better by<br />

using better quality ingredients with diligently<br />

practiced techniques.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: Oysters <strong>and</strong> Pearls<br />

at The French Laundry in Yountville.<br />

One food I'll never get behind: Vegan food<br />

made to look like meat.<br />

Guilty pleasure food: Any hot dog from<br />

Ruffhaus Hot Dog Co.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work with: Great food<br />

is loaded with love; considering I’m my own<br />

boss working with my fiancé in a New American<br />

restaurant, I get to work with that ingredient<br />

every day <strong>and</strong> am proud to say it shows. Also,<br />

salt. Developing a method <strong>and</strong> a madness to<br />

salt usage really makes food sing. The famous<br />

chef Jean-Louis Palladin made the inference<br />

that people don't go to restaurants because<br />

[chefs] know how to cook, they go out because<br />

[they] know how to use salt.<br />

For dinner last night I ate: Leftover Chinese<br />

food in the only fashion acceptable—the dregs<br />

from every box, in a bowl, with white rice<br />

heated up <strong>and</strong> devoured.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Sparkling wine <strong>and</strong><br />

anything; or pork <strong>and</strong> fruit.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: “Chip <strong>and</strong> Dip”<br />

at State Bird Provisions in San Francisco.<br />

You'd never know it, but: I grew up absolutely<br />

loathing onions.<br />

Jarunee Fleming<br />

Thai Paradise, 2770 East Bidwell Street, Suite 100,<br />

<strong>Folsom</strong>, 916-984-8988, thaiparadisefolsom.com<br />

If you look far enough down<br />

Jarunee Fleming’s résumé,<br />

you’ll find the time she<br />

honed her cooking skills in<br />

Bangkok, Thail<strong>and</strong>, which<br />

explains why her Thai curries<br />

are so popular—<strong>and</strong> one of<br />

her favorite things to cook.<br />

Her focus today? Bringing the<br />

authentic flavors of Thail<strong>and</strong><br />

to <strong>Folsom</strong>. Yes, please.<br />

First memory of food: Being<br />

six years old <strong>and</strong> eating rice.<br />

Food philosophy: I just love<br />

making people happy <strong>and</strong><br />

healthy.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d<br />

be: Growing flowers <strong>and</strong><br />

vegetables.<br />

Top cooking tip: Taste what<br />

you cook before you serve it!<br />

The best thing I ever ate:<br />

Cioppino at Sotto Mare in San<br />

Francisco.<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

behind: Beef.<br />

Guilty pleasure food: Ice<br />

cream.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work<br />

with: Chiles.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate:<br />

Veggie soup!<br />

Favorite food pairing:<br />

Shrimp <strong>and</strong> greens.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong><br />

dish: Cioppino at Sea Chest<br />

in Cambria.<br />

You’d never know it, but:<br />

I’m a great singer.<br />

Christine Ondrus-Lykos<br />

Farmer’s Delicatessen <strong>and</strong> Bakery, 3952 Cambridge<br />

Road, Cameron Park, 530-672-6800, farmersdeli.net<br />

John S<strong>and</strong>ers<br />

Old Town Grill, 444 Main Street, Placerville, 530-622-<br />

2631, otgplacerville.com<br />

John S<strong>and</strong>ers always<br />

knew he wanted his own<br />

restaurant. He’s clocked 41<br />

years as a chef (18 at the<br />

grill) <strong>and</strong> while food will<br />

always be his first passion,<br />

his other passion is helping<br />

folks develop a solid work<br />

foundation right in his own<br />

kitchen.<br />

First memory of food:<br />

Coming from a family of<br />

nine children—yes, nine—my<br />

dear mother would prepare<br />

a meal for the family <strong>and</strong><br />

we’d all share the day <strong>and</strong><br />

enjoy it together.<br />

Food philosophy: Take<br />

advantage of the local<br />

resources <strong>and</strong> bounty that<br />

our area has to offer.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:<br />

I’m living my dream job.<br />

Top cooking tip: The three<br />

“T”s ensure a finished<br />

product—time, temperature,<br />

<strong>and</strong> taste.<br />

The best thing I ever ate:<br />

A perfectly seared <strong>and</strong><br />

seasoned chuck-end, bonein<br />

ribeye.<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

behind: Mushrooms—I like<br />

the earthy profile, but I can’t<br />

h<strong>and</strong>le the texture.<br />

Guilty pleasure food: My 10<br />

p.m. snack!<br />

Favorite ingredient to<br />

work with: Walking through<br />

our farmers’ markets <strong>and</strong><br />

utilizing whatever came out<br />

of the farms that day.<br />

ate: Shrimp fajitas in a cast<br />

iron skillet cooked on an<br />

open fire alongside zucchini<br />

stuffed with crab, salmon,<br />

scallops, <strong>and</strong> lobster.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Wild<br />

game with a deep, earthy<br />

sauce <strong>and</strong> fresh herbs.<br />

Favorite restaurant<br />

<strong>and</strong> dish: Cioppino with<br />

sourdough bread at Scoma’s<br />

in San Francisco.<br />

You’d never know it, but:<br />

I have more than 30 years<br />

being clean <strong>and</strong> sober, <strong>and</strong><br />

my passion through food<br />

is to help others who just<br />

need a break or a chance.<br />

Christine Ondrus-Lykos thought she might attend the<br />

Culinary Institute of America some 20 years ago, but<br />

instead, the self-taught chef blazed a trail all on her own<br />

by traveling through Europe <strong>and</strong> gaining an immense<br />

appreciation of what other countries <strong>and</strong> cultures bring<br />

to the American palate—<strong>and</strong> plate. Now the native New<br />

Yorker is doing the same at her beloved bakery <strong>and</strong> deli in<br />

Cameron Park.<br />

First memory of food: I visited Hungary <strong>and</strong> Romania<br />

when I was four. I remember playing with pigs <strong>and</strong> chickens<br />

on a remote farm, <strong>and</strong> I vividly recall seeing a whole animal<br />

being cooked on top of a spit in an open field.<br />

Food philosophy: Keep it simple, take your time, <strong>and</strong> mind<br />

your energy in the kitchen—energy is an ingredient!<br />

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

The best thing I ever ate: Crème caramel in Barcelona.<br />

One food I’ll never get behind: Escargot.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Clarified butter <strong>and</strong> garlic.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: The Cashew Chicken at Thai<br />

House.<br />

You’d never know it, but: When I was younger, I wanted to<br />

be a dancer.<br />

15 TOP CHEFS<br />

Mark Berkner<br />

Taste Restaurant, 9402 Main Street, Plymouth, 209-245-<br />

3463, restauranttaste.com<br />

Mark Berkner serves as the<br />

department chair for the<br />

San Joaquin Delta College<br />

of Culinary Arts, a tasty full<br />

circle from when he was a<br />

student studying culinary<br />

arts at Contra Costa College.<br />

The chef <strong>and</strong> educator<br />

believes that all chefs are<br />

artists, <strong>and</strong> after a bite of his<br />

foie gras or seared scallops,<br />

we’re inclined to agree.<br />

Food philosophy: Food<br />

should be prepared <strong>and</strong><br />

consumed at its most<br />

optimal freshness <strong>and</strong><br />

ripeness while showcasing<br />

the natural flavors of the<br />

ingredients. It shouldn’t be<br />

intimidating, but it should<br />

be a nourishing experience<br />

that makes your taste buds<br />

happy.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:<br />

Test driving dirt bikes.<br />

Guilty pleasure food:<br />

Reuben s<strong>and</strong>wiches.<br />

Favorite ingredient<br />

to work with: Wild<br />

mushrooms that I’ve<br />

foraged.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate:<br />

Liverwurst on crackers at 10<br />

p.m.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Toast<br />

paired with anything!<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong><br />

dish: The Waterboy, <strong>and</strong><br />

anything on the menu.<br />

You’d never know it, but:<br />

I’m a professor.<br />

Dean Hiatt<br />

Poor Red’s Bar-B-Que, 6221 Pleasant Valley Road, <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong>,<br />

530-622-2901, poorreds.com<br />

Dean Hiatt might just be one of the last nice chefs st<strong>and</strong>ing. Most<br />

chefs have a story or two about how fiery the kitchen can get—in<br />

more ways than one. Instead, Dean says he watched chefs mistreat<br />

their employees as he worked his way through kitchens <strong>and</strong> vowed<br />

to never do the same. He also supports what he calls “reverse<br />

farming”—where local farms come to him <strong>and</strong> ask what they can<br />

grow for the restaurant, instead of vice versa, which puts less strain<br />

on the environment.<br />

First memory of food: My biological mother left when I was<br />

younger, so it was just me, my brother, <strong>and</strong> my dad. I remember<br />

watching Julia Child with my dad—he’d take notes <strong>and</strong> then make<br />

us dinner later.<br />

Food philosophy: I like my food to tell a story, especially a story of<br />

the l<strong>and</strong>scape—so if I serve venison, I also serve mushrooms; or if I<br />

serve fish, I also serve nuts from the river.<br />

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

previously, I was a firefighter <strong>and</strong> a musician. If I had to move on<br />

from here, I’d be a police officer.<br />

Top cooking tip: Coco Chanel says that before you leave the<br />

house, you should take one thing off—I think before you send<br />

out a plate, you should take something off. Don’t overthink or<br />

overcomplicate it.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: Barbecue back home in Texas.<br />

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

can’t eat raw fish.<br />

Guilty pleasure food: I like to dip a spoonful of peanut butter in<br />

chocolate chips.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work with: Sage. It reminds me of home.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate: I made sage dirty rice with a sagestuffed,<br />

bacon-wrapped pork loin, <strong>and</strong> winter roasted vegetables,<br />

<strong>and</strong> yes, sage.<br />

Favorite food pairing: Some kind of root vegetable <strong>and</strong> ribeye.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: I love The Independent Restaurant<br />

<strong>and</strong> Bar! Every time I go, I’m always going to get their California<br />

Chicken S<strong>and</strong>wich; I have them take the avocado off though—it’s a<br />

texture thing.<br />

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

a parking lot in Las Vegas trying to put myself through a culinary<br />

education working under some chefs for not a lot of money. I guess<br />

the dream was bigger than anything else.<br />

learned under—<strong>and</strong>, most<br />

importantly, his mom.<br />

First memory of food: My<br />

It was—<strong>and</strong> still is—the best.<br />

Food philosophy: Use what<br />

passion <strong>and</strong> love.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: A<br />

rock star.<br />

passion. If that ingredient is<br />

missing, then forget it.<br />

My mother's home cooking. I<br />

want some now, actually!<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

dad, who is Croatian, would<br />

make palacinkas, which are<br />

like a thick crêpe. I used to<br />

smother them in jam <strong>and</strong> roll<br />

them up.<br />

Food philosophy: I love to<br />

celebrate plants in all their<br />

beautiful glory. Delicious<br />

colors, flavors, <strong>and</strong> textures<br />

can happen with the simplest<br />

ingredients. I strive for food<br />

being not only delicious <strong>and</strong><br />

beautiful, but nourishing <strong>and</strong><br />

joyful.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be:<br />

I’d love to spend more time<br />

being creative <strong>and</strong> innovative<br />

while other trusted individuals<br />

h<strong>and</strong>led the daily business<br />

aspects of running a restaurant.<br />

Top cooking tip: Use whatever<br />

tools you can find to make<br />

cooking fun <strong>and</strong> easy, <strong>and</strong> get<br />

in there <strong>and</strong> play.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: I’m<br />

still haunted by the memory of<br />

a breathtaking chile relleno I<br />

had as a kid in Arizona at a tiny<br />

hole-in-the-wall restaurant. So<br />

uniquely <strong>and</strong> freshly prepared,<br />

it inspires me to this day. I<br />

also once had a cherimoya<br />

fruit that was so perfectly<br />

sun-ripened <strong>and</strong> flavorful<br />

that it was bliss beyond belief,<br />

eliciting audible moans <strong>and</strong><br />

head-to-toe tingles. I’m still<br />

chasing that experience each<br />

time I buy a cherimoya.<br />

One food I’ll never get<br />

behind: Animals.<br />

Guilty pleasure food:<br />

So Delicious cashew ice<br />

cream (salted caramel <strong>and</strong><br />

snickerdoodle).<br />

Favorite ingredient to work<br />

with: Besan (a smooth yellow<br />

chickpea flour found in Indian<br />

grocery stores). It’s shockingly<br />

gross when tasted raw, but<br />

borderline magical after it’s<br />

freshly cooked.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate:<br />

Veggie enchiladas, green<br />

cilantro rice, chips, <strong>and</strong> salsa<br />

Favorite food pairing: Fruit<br />

<strong>and</strong> herbs, like blackberries<br />

<strong>and</strong> sage or watermelon <strong>and</strong><br />

mint.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish:<br />

The vegan OMFG roll from<br />

Lou’s Sushi in Sacramento.<br />

You’d never know it, but: My<br />

kids were born in Haiti, <strong>and</strong><br />

I have a deep appreciation<br />

<strong>and</strong> love for Haitian culture<br />

<strong>and</strong> food, which is mainly<br />

Caribbean with a French<br />

influence. I offer Haitian dishes<br />

sometimes at Zest <strong>and</strong> am<br />

thrilled when people try them.<br />

8140, ourfarmtable.com<br />

Kara Taylor started working in coffee <strong>and</strong> donut shops<br />

when she was 13, followed by a pie-making stint at an apple<br />

orchard. By 15, she was cooking on the line at a fine dining<br />

Italian restaurant. Today? You can find her slinging some of<br />

the best duck confit in Northern California, among other<br />

things.<br />

First memory of food: Eating lobster at a birthday party<br />

when I was four. Growing up in coastal New Engl<strong>and</strong>, it was a<br />

family tradition to eat lobster on our birthdays.<br />

Food philosophy: Less is more.<br />

If I wasn’t a chef, I’d be: Doing community development<br />

work in the nonprofit or public sector.<br />

Top cooking tip: Don’t rush it. Dishes cooked “low <strong>and</strong><br />

slow” like confits <strong>and</strong> braises are my specialty.<br />

The best thing I ever ate: Lobster in butter, lobster bisque,<br />

lobster roll—I really love lobster.<br />

One food I’ll never get behind: I can’t think of anything I’ll<br />

never like!<br />

Guilty pleasure food: Fried chicken, but I don’t really feel<br />

guilty about it.<br />

Favorite ingredient to work with: Pork.<br />

For dinner last night, I ate: A sausage s<strong>and</strong>wich with<br />

grilled peppers <strong>and</strong> onions.<br />

Favorite food pairing: During fall, butternut squash <strong>and</strong><br />

chipotle chili.<br />

Favorite restaurant <strong>and</strong> dish: Chile Relleno <strong>and</strong> Blood<br />

Sausage Tacos from Santa Maria Taqueria.<br />

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

librarian, lending out tools <strong>and</strong> fixing small engines on lawn<br />

mowers.<br />

Amore Mio<br />

Italian Bistro<br />

Love at First Bite<br />

Salsicce e Pollo in Coppia<br />

By strange coincidence, when I was asked to review the Gold Country’s<br />

newest Italian bistro, I had been craving the authentic, rustic cuisine of<br />

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

<strong>and</strong> I strolled down a quaint courtyard off<br />

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

Amore Mio.<br />


The bistro is the collaboration between<br />

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

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

for their new life in the foothills, their<br />

customers, <strong>and</strong> each other. We witnessed<br />

the latter when Sigrid brought Mari<br />

flowers as consolation for “a tough day.”<br />

The “awww” factor was palpable.<br />

After a glass of local vino was poured,<br />

my trip back to Tuscany officially began<br />

with il fritto misto della casa—delicately fried<br />

zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella<br />

alongside arancini (breaded risotto balls)<br />

<strong>and</strong> a drizzle of balsamic reduction nestled<br />

atop fresh greens <strong>and</strong> diced tomatoes.<br />

While it’s possible to find arancini on<br />

menus from time to time, the addition of<br />

fried zucchini flowers is a rarity, making<br />

this a must-order antipasti.<br />

My mother recently blessed me with<br />

a parcel of melanzana (eggplant) from her<br />

garden, so I was excited to see the oblong<br />

purple orb featured in Amore’s di rughetta,<br />

pomodorini e melanzane. Grilled eggplant<br />

strips, rolled <strong>and</strong> filled with ricotta <strong>and</strong><br />

sun-dried tomatoes, accompanied by<br />

cherry tomatoes <strong>and</strong> fresh-picked arugula<br />

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

of eggplant <strong>and</strong> ricotta a bright burst, while the arugula provided a palatable, peppery bite.<br />

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

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

plate (she will always order gnocchi in creamy pesto), while<br />

I savored my way through the salsicce e pollo in coppia. My<br />

dish, sausage <strong>and</strong> chicken with peppers <strong>and</strong> onions<br />

in tomato sauce, was hearty <strong>and</strong> satisfying, <strong>and</strong><br />

I knew I could enjoy any leftovers later; but<br />

the large bowl of pillowy potato dumplings<br />

in basil-infused cream with pine nuts <strong>and</strong><br />

parmesan could not be postponed. Gnocchi<br />

in creamy pesto waits for no one, <strong>and</strong> those<br />

that pirate from their significant others are<br />

soon rewarded—or so the saying goes…<br />

Persimmon & Pomegranate Salad<br />

get soggy.<br />

Acorn Squash with Apple Stuffing<br />

Submitted by Allie <strong>and</strong> Dan, Sacramento-based<br />

bloggers at Love & Risotto, love<strong>and</strong>risotto.com,<br />

@love<strong>and</strong>risotto<br />

• 2 acorn squash, cut in half<br />

• 2 tbsp. olive oil<br />

• Salt <strong>and</strong> pepper<br />

• 1 apple, chopped<br />

• 1 box stuffing<br />

• 1 1/2 cups water<br />

• 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated<br />

• 1/4 cup dried cranberries<br />

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.<br />

Halve the acorn squash from each pointy end. Remove<br />

the seeds <strong>and</strong> rub with olive oil. Season with salt <strong>and</strong><br />

pepper. Turn squash halves over <strong>and</strong> place in a<br />

baking dish. Quarter the apple <strong>and</strong> put in the<br />

same baking dish. Place in oven <strong>and</strong> bake for<br />

25-30 minutes.<br />

Mix stuffing <strong>and</strong> water <strong>and</strong> cook on stovetop according<br />

to package directions.<br />

With baked apples, stuffing, <strong>and</strong> cranberries, this<br />

stuffed acorn squash is completely tasty. In a few steps <strong>and</strong><br />

with very little time <strong>and</strong> energy, the perfect bite of fall is ready.<br />

Once the acorn squash is roasted, evenly spoon in the<br />

stuffing. Top with the baked apple, dried cranberries,<br />

<strong>and</strong> parmesan cheese.<br />

These bars are similar to<br />

the Cranberry Bliss Bars you<br />

can buy at “that one” coffee shop<br />

but without all of the chemicals, refined sugars,<br />

additives, <strong>and</strong> oils.<br />

• 1 cup organic flour<br />

• 1 tsp. organic baking powder<br />

• 1/4 tsp. Himalayan sea salt<br />

• 1 tbsp. fresh ginger<br />

• 1/2 tbsp. fresh turmeric<br />

• 1 scoop (add more if you want!) Vital<br />

Protein’s Collagen Beauty Water<br />

(Strawberry Lemonade)<br />

• 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar<br />

• 1 tbsp. vanilla extract<br />

• 2 tbsp. organic coconut oil<br />

• 1 organic egg<br />

• 1 cup fresh organic cranberries<br />

For the Frosting:<br />

• 1 brick softened organic cream cheese<br />

• 1 tbsp. lemon zest<br />

• 1 tbsp. organic coconut sugar<br />

• 1/2 cup unsweetened dried cranberries<br />

Add flour, baking powder, <strong>and</strong> sea salt to a<br />

medium mixing bowl, then add the fresh ginger<br />

<strong>and</strong> turmeric <strong>and</strong> combine. Next, add 1 scoop of<br />

collagen beauty water <strong>and</strong> combine again.<br />

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the coconut<br />

sugar, vanilla extract, coconut oil, <strong>and</strong> egg <strong>and</strong><br />

whisk together (do not overmix). Combine all<br />

ingredients together with a mixer on low speed.<br />

Remember: Do not overmix or your dough may<br />

Healthy Cranberry Delight Bars<br />

come out in clumps. For the smoothest dough possible, mix everything together<br />

slowly; no need to rush this part.<br />

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

until combined. Spread dough mixture evenly into a greased baking pan (I use<br />

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

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

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

While the bars cool, make the frosting. Combine softened cream cheese, lemon<br />

zest, <strong>and</strong> coconut sugar in a mixer until the frosting comes out smooth.<br />

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

them. Top with frosting, dried cranberries, <strong>and</strong> more lemon zest. The bars will keep<br />

in the fridge for up to one week in an airtight glass container.<br />

We Love...<br />

FIND<br />

by JULIE RYAN<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

masago, scallions, sesame oil, Hawaiian salt, edamame, <strong>and</strong> jalapeños…or all the above. Next, get saucy<br />

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

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

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

but you’re also in luck: Reel serves a variety of cooked, isl<strong>and</strong>-inspired plates, like garlic shrimp, onigirazu<br />

(essentially a sushi s<strong>and</strong>wich) seared salmon, <strong>and</strong> fried “mochiko” chicken. What’s more, the family-owned<br />

restaurant uses only California-grown produce <strong>and</strong> 100-percent sustainable seafood, so you know you’re<br />

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

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

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

“The Hungarian Apple<br />

Strudel from Farmer’s<br />

Delicatessen <strong>and</strong> Bakery<br />

in Cameron Park is a<br />

traditional Hungarian pastry<br />

featuring flaky, crisp layers of<br />

buttery phyllo dough, golden<br />

raisins, walnuts, apples,<br />

sugar, <strong>and</strong> cinnamon. It’s an<br />

extra rich treat that’s become<br />

a fast favorite (I even got my<br />

family hooked). Each strudel<br />

is individually h<strong>and</strong>made, <strong>and</strong><br />

you can taste the attention to<br />

detail in every bite. This treat<br />

is all kinds of wonderful.”<br />

farmersdeli.net<br />

“<strong>Folsom</strong>’s BJ Cinnamon is<br />

like pastry heaven. I think<br />

I’ve tried almost all of their<br />

baked goods (cinnamon rolls,<br />

sticky buns, donuts, cake,<br />

fritters—name it, I’ve had it),<br />

but I keep going back to the<br />

Cronuts. They’re the perfect<br />

mix of buttery croissant<br />

<strong>and</strong> sweet donut, <strong>and</strong> they<br />

NEVER disappoint. The<br />

croissant-doughnut hybrid is<br />

great with just plain sugar <strong>and</strong><br />

exceptional with chocolate, or<br />

a maple glaze. They’re best<br />

warmed <strong>and</strong> had with a cup of<br />

hot coffee.” 916-608-8824<br />

“The Almond Croissant<br />

from Julian’s Pâtisserie <strong>and</strong><br />

Café in <strong>Folsom</strong> is filled with a<br />

delectable almond cream that’s<br />

the perfect consistency—not<br />

too thick <strong>and</strong> just enough with<br />

every bite. The pastry itself is<br />

nice <strong>and</strong> crisp <strong>and</strong> never dry<br />

with layer upon layer of flaky,<br />

buttery goodness. The outside<br />

has a bit of the same almond<br />

cream, topped with toasted<br />

slivered almonds <strong>and</strong> powdered<br />

sugar. It’s the best thing<br />

outside of Europe! I’m guilty<br />

of having made this a weekly<br />

habit.” julianscafe.com<br />

“Icing on the Cupcake is<br />

famous for their Red Velvet<br />

Cupcake—<strong>and</strong> for good reason.<br />

I like getting it ‘baby-bite’ size<br />

so I feel less guilty. (It’s warped<br />

logic, I know.) The moist, neverdry<br />

cupcake isn’t overly sweet<br />

<strong>and</strong> come with a heavenly cream<br />

cheese frosting that makes for a<br />

spot-on confection every single<br />

time. Red sprinkles <strong>and</strong> a tiny<br />

red heart on top are the icing<br />

on the cake! I’ve also heard<br />

great things about their glutenfree<br />

<strong>and</strong> vegan cupcakes.”<br />

icingonthecupcake.com<br />

“Starbread in Roseville is the<br />

greatest Filipino bakery in the<br />

region—possibly in existence.<br />

Their signature Señorita<br />

Bread dances lightly on your<br />

taste buds—<strong>and</strong> your wallet!<br />

What’s more, the customer<br />

service is always on point.<br />

These little finger rolls are<br />

light <strong>and</strong> airy <strong>and</strong> slathered<br />

with butter <strong>and</strong> sugar…it’s<br />

remarkable how something so<br />

simple can be so addictive. I’ve<br />

downed 10 of these babies in<br />

one go. They should seriously<br />

come with a warning!”<br />

starbreadca.com<br />

“North Star Home Baking in<br />

Rocklin is a feast for the eyes.<br />

From artisan tarts <strong>and</strong> pastries to<br />

breads <strong>and</strong> savory items, all of their<br />

European <strong>and</strong> Mediterranean treats<br />

are ‘h<strong>and</strong>made with love’ as the cute<br />

stickers on their packaging claim.<br />

Owner Metin Emek also shares<br />

his love of baking with everyone<br />

he meets. Fresh fruit galore,<br />

their Fruit Puff cradles a rich,<br />

homemade French pudding topped<br />

with fresh fruits of the day that<br />

sometimes include figs, kiwi, <strong>and</strong> all<br />

types of berries. I’ve never seen or<br />

tasted anything so gorgeous before.”<br />

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?<br />

Belle Mode is a women’s consignment boutique that carries highquality<br />

clothing, h<strong>and</strong>bags, shoes, <strong>and</strong> accessories <strong>and</strong> has been in<br />

<strong>Folsom</strong> since 2002. Prior to purchasing the business earlier this year, I<br />

was a Belle Mode customer. When the owner decided to retire, I offered<br />

to purchase it, <strong>and</strong> here I am!<br />

What was the first job you ever had, <strong>and</strong> what did you learn from<br />

the experience?<br />

I began working summers for my gr<strong>and</strong>parents when I was 15. They<br />

taught me what it means to have a strong work ethic <strong>and</strong> how to be a<br />

responsible employee <strong>and</strong> reliable person.<br />

How are you involved with both the community <strong>and</strong> your<br />

customer?<br />

I’m proud that Belle Mode—through its loyal <strong>and</strong> generous customer<br />

contributions after consignment—donates thous<strong>and</strong>s of items each<br />

year to organizations such as Snowline Hospice, WEAVE, <strong>and</strong> a local<br />

women’s shelter.<br />

What’s your hidden talent?<br />

I’ve been blessed with a green thumb <strong>and</strong> love gardening.<br />

What’s your biggest job perk?<br />

The relationships that have developed with so many amazing women;<br />

also, providing beautiful items of quality for each woman’s unique style.<br />

performanceheating<strong>and</strong>airconditioning.com<br />

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?<br />

I’m a second-generation HVAC business owner. My father was a<br />

heating <strong>and</strong> air contractor in Burlington, Vermont, <strong>and</strong> I worked<br />

for him at a very young age. I ended up moving to Walnut Creek<br />

<strong>and</strong> starting my own business. In 1995, I moved the business to<br />

<strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> <strong>and</strong> have been serving the community—both<br />

commercial <strong>and</strong> residential—since 1995.<br />

How are you involved with both the community <strong>and</strong> your<br />

customer?<br />

We’ve been serving 15 convalescent homes up <strong>and</strong> down the<br />

Highway 99 corridor for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on<br />

knowledge <strong>and</strong> honesty, allowing customers to make the decision<br />

on how they would like to spend their dollars. We have also<br />

donated time <strong>and</strong> services to the local chapter of Habitat for<br />

Humanity.<br />

Why is your staff the best in the business?<br />

They’re knowledgeable about the inner workings of HVAC<br />

systems—from large commercial boilers, to complicated controls,<br />

<strong>and</strong> new communication technology, all the way down to the basic<br />

air flow needs of residential homes. We pride ourselves on being a<br />

one-stop shop for all your heating <strong>and</strong> air conditioning needs <strong>and</strong><br />

are one of the few companies left who will "service" your HVAC<br />

system—not just tell you that you need to replace it.<br />

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?<br />

Our favorite is The Independent (especially when we get Jake as<br />

our waiter). Bricks, Jack Russell Brewery, <strong>and</strong> Cascada are also<br />

great.<br />

And finally, customer service is…?<br />

Having the ability to share a friendly voice <strong>and</strong> h<strong>and</strong>le a customer’s<br />

needs. Also, giving clients value <strong>and</strong> being available to answer their<br />

questions <strong>and</strong> fix the problem is imperative in this industry.<br />


In fact, our Introducing <strong>and</strong> 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<br />

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