The past 10 days I’ve been on a strict seafood diet. My family is traveling down the Oregon Coast, which means we’re determined to devour as much clam chowder and fish & chips as we can. Is it just me, or do road trips beckon you to eat more (a lot more) and worry less?
Besides the lighthouses, stunning scenery, and cool coastal air, the seafood around these parts is reason enough to return.
Luckily, going on an Oregon vacay isn’t necessary to snag an award-winning bowl of chowdah or fresh-caught crab with all the fixin’s. Our region has plenty of mouthwatering fish dishes—inspired from all cuisines and corners of the globe—that are sure to have you hooked. Turn to “Seafood Spectacular” on page 57 for over 31 of our favorites, including a stunning seafood platter for two, sticky-sweet honey walnut prawns, and an indulgent lobster risotto that’ll leave you oohing, aahing, and wondering why you didn’t discover it sooner.
Something else I wish I discovered sooner? Backpacking. My husband and I went on our first foray earlier this summer, and—even though our meals were less than luxurious—the experience of wandering where the Wi-Fi was weak (actually, nonexistent), camping without another soul in sight, and witnessing the wonders of the night sky has me eager to explore more. If you, too, are interested in going off grid but clueless where to start, check out “Walk in the Woods” (page 42) for 13 backpacking must-haves and some beginner-friendly areas to explore, then turn to page 98 for 5 astronomical events happening this month like the “stellar” Perseids meteor shower from August 11-13.
What else is tucked into these glossy print pages? A roundup of must-reads from accomplished area authors (“Book Club” on page 24); a guide to helping your kiddos return to the classroom (“Back-to-School Rules” on page 36); and 5 essential experiences in Edinburgh, Scotland (page 78), where I hear the seafood—particularly the cullen skink (smoked haddock soup)—is seriously scrumptious.

| editor’s letter |

The past 10 days I’ve been

on a strict seafood diet. My

family is traveling down the

Oregon Coast, which means

we’re determined to devour

as much clam chowder and

fish & chips as we can. Is it

just me, or do road trips beckon you to eat more

(a lot more) and worry less?

So far, our favorite spot was in Newport at

an unassuming establishment on Highway 101

called South Beach Fish Market. Luckily, the

line out the door moved fairly fast, and the place

proved to be busy for a reason. Their chowder

was thick, perfectly seasoned, and packed to

the gills with fresh-caught clams; while the light,

crispy coating on the firm, flaky fish paired

perfectly with our Rogue Colossal Claude

Imperial IPAs. Based on the fact that our twoyear-old

inhaled almost half the chips—she’s a

French fry fanatic—those clearly were a win, too.

Besides the lighthouses, stunning scenery,

and cool coastal air, the seafood around these parts is reason enough to return.

Luckily, going on an Oregon vacay isn’t necessary to snag an award-winning bowl of

chowdah or fresh-caught crab with all the fixin’s. Our region has plenty of mouthwatering fish

dishes—inspired from all cuisines and corners of the globe—that are sure to have you hooked.

Turn to “Seafood Spectacular” on page 57 for over 31 of our favorites, including a stunning

seafood platter for two, sticky-sweet honey walnut prawns, and

“Being kind

is always

more

important

than being

right.”

an indulgent lobster risotto that’ll leave you oohing, aahing,

and wondering why you didn’t discover it sooner.

Something else I wish I discovered sooner? Backpacking.

My husband and I went on our first foray earlier this

summer, and—even though our meals were less than

luxurious—the experience of wandering where the Wi-Fi

was weak (actually, nonexistent), camping without another

soul in sight, and witnessing the wonders of the night sky

has me eager to explore more. If you, too, are interested in

going off grid but clueless where to start, check out “Walk

in the Woods” (page 42) for 13 backpacking must-haves and

some beginner-friendly areas to explore, then turn to page

98 for 5 astronomical events happening this month like the

“stellar” Perseids meteor shower from August 11-13.

What else is tucked into these glossy print pages? A

roundup of must-reads from accomplished area authors

(“Book Club” on page 24); a guide to helping your kiddos

return to the classroom (“Back-to-School Rules” on page 36);

and 5 essential experiences in Edinburgh, Scotland (page

78), where I hear the seafood—particularly the cullen skink

(smoked haddock soup)—is seriously scrumptious. Cheers!

Who was

your favorite

teacher?

"My PE teacher and football

coach, Jerry Deuker. Pinole

Valley High School class of

1976—the only undefeated

football team in our school's

history. RIP Mr. Deuker!”

—Lorn Randall

“Nigel Poor, my photography

professor at Sacramento State.

She opened her student's

minds and taught us how truly

powerful imaging can be.”

—Dante Fontana

“Sakina Bryant—my English/

philosophy professor at Sonoma

State University—because not

only did she see potential in me,

but she took the time to help

me turn into the kind of writer/

student I always wanted to be

and became a great friend as

well.”—Bella Nolen

“My college literature teacher

who taught me about some of

the great classics, some lesserknown

history, and always

inspired me to write about

anything and everything.”—

Ryan Martinez

“My math professor in college

taught me a lesson in the power

of a good teacher. Before taking

one of her classes I thought

‘math just wasn’t my thing.’”

—Nelly Kislyanka

“Mrs. Kuhn, my second grade

teacher. I was obsessed with

baseball stickers back in 1985

and when I aced my homework,

she would paperclip a few

stickers to it when handing it

back.” —Gary Zsigo

literally, and figuratively, turned

THE CLASS

4 A+ Teachers

by TARA MENDANHA

Amid the excitement of back-to-school

month, we’re taking a moment to cheer the

champions of classrooms: teachers. Here are

some of the most hard-working, dedicated,

and creative among them.

Daniela

Solley

6th

Grade

English

Teacher

at Glen

Edwards

Middle

School,

Lincoln

A

business major in college, Daniela Solley

struggled to find macroeconomics and

taxation interesting. That’s when a friend

suggested she change her major to education. “I

instantly loved my new classes and when placed

in a classroom for field work, I knew I was in the

right place,” she says.

Armed with a Master of Education in Curriculum

and Instruction from Portland State University,

Solley moved to the Western Placer Unified School

District in 2003 and has worn many hats since—

from elementary and middle school teacher to

assistant principal and principal. She currently

serves on the Leadership Team, Positive Behavioral

Intervention and Supports Committee, as the

English Department Curriculum Lead, Confidence

Club Advisor, and as the newest girls’ golf coach

at Lincoln High School. She’s also been an Area

3 Writing Project teacher consultant since 2007

and devised the two-sided writer’s notebook,

which has helped countless teachers and students.

What’s more, Solley was selected as the 2021

Placer County Teacher of the Year, Middle School

Teacher of the Year, and Western Placer Unified

K-8 Teacher of the Year.

Describe yourself and your teaching style. I’m

focused, organized, and flexible with a heart

of empathy and patience. My teaching style is

student-centered. As soon as students enter the

door they are warmly welcomed, seen, heard, and

respected.

What are your hopes for your students? I hope

they see their strengths, develop confidence in

their abilities, and are willing to take chances to

learn from mistakes/failures. Along with selfadvocacy,

I hope students leave with a few golden

nuggets to carry with them in the years to come.

What's the biggest lesson you've learned so far?

Balance. As educators, we tend to try and be all

things to all people, which is unrealistic and

unhealthy. I remind myself I can only do the best I

can with the time and resources I have and accept

that it is good enough.

Teaching tool/resource: Teachers from

door; hearing students share their writing; and

dinner with my husband.

Way to unwind: Lots of golf, listening

to vinyl while cooking dinner, pedaling on the

stationary bike, and reading/writing.

Rachel Stewart

Special Education Teacher,

Transition Program at

Woodcreek High School,

Roseville

W

hen Rachel Stewart got a fullride

scholarship for basketball

to UC Berkeley, her goal was to

become a child psychologist. So, what

changed? In her final semester, she

became a teacher’s assistant for an

adaptive PE teacher and got to work

with a student with spina bifida. “I

loved seeing his infectious smile as he

let his body float carefree in the pool.

He was my first experience working

with students with disabilities and I

loved every minute,” she shares.

After graduating, Stewart moved back

to Roseville and became a substitute

teacher for students with disabilities.

“I saw the light in their eyes as they

attempted to make connections and

thought, ‘How lucky am I to be in their

lives?’ That thought…motivates me

daily. I am beyond blessed,” she says.

Eventually, Stewart became a

basketball coach and special

education teacher. She currently

teaches transition-age special

education students and helps

coordinate Unified Sports. As of this

past year, she’s also assistant athletic

director at Woodcreek High School.

Describe yourself and your teaching

style. I teach independence and

self-growth at the highest level

through love, care, and support. Our

classroom is safe, welcoming, loving,

fun, and engaging.

What are your hopes for your

students? My students’ motto is

“Our potential is LIMITLESS,” and it

is this motto that drives my vision

for teaching and maintaining high

expectations academically, socially,

behaviorally, and emotionally.

What's the biggest lesson you've

learned so far? When I first started

teaching students with emotional

disturbances, I quickly learned

valuable lessons. I learned how to

sit still, listen, and allow for silence

and emotional release no matter how

hard it was.

Favorites

Teaching tool/

resource: My students love

posting videos for educational

questions on Flipgrid.

Quote: “You never fail until

you stop trying.” It reminds me

of my dad’s endless support.

Part of your day: Seeing

my students’ smiling faces

followed by coming home to

my wife.

Way to unwind: Driving

down back roads with the

windows down and the music up.

s a child, Valerie Owens spent

hours in her room lining up

dolls and “teaching” them how to

Valerie Owens

Kindergarten & 1st Grade Teacher at T heodore Judah

Elementary School, Folsom

“What inspires me most are the

conversations we have as a class

throughout the year where you see

students learning life lessons—like

honesty, empathy, and kindness—and

putting them into action in class, at

lunch, or on the playground,” she says.

Describe yourself and your teaching

style. My teaching style is largely

filtered through the lens of: "How

would I want my own child to

experience this lesson?"—whether

it be academic or otherwise. I’m a

huge believer in Gardner's Theory of

Multiple Intelligences—the belief that

each human has their own unique

learning strengths and styles, and that

as a teacher, it is my goal to build a

relationship with each student and

learn how they each learn best.

What are your hopes for your students?

I want each of them to leave my

classroom knowing they are worthy

and loved just as they are; that being

kind is always more important than

being right; and that the brain and

bravery are muscles—the more you use

them, the stronger they become!

What's the biggest lesson you've

learned so far? From my students,

I’ve learned that family is more than

just who we’re related to. I love my

students deeply and unconditionally.

I’ve also learned that children learn

best when they know they’re loved

and valued. From my coworkers, I’ve

learned that we are best when we

work together.

Larry Bryant

Science Teacher, Science Department Head,

& Peer Advocate Advisor at Golden Sierra

Junior Senior High School, Garden Valley

L

arry Bryant first dabbled in marketing

and distribution for a pet food

company after getting his degree in

biology from UC Santa Cruz. Upon hiring

young college students, Bryant opened his

office after hours to enable them to finish

their schoolwork on office computers. “I

liked helping them and realized I enjoyed

teaching and missed science, so I went

back to school and got my teaching

credential,” he says.

Ever since, Bryant’s focus has been on

the youth. He’s even taken classes in

youth development, neurology, trauma

informed teaching, and adverse childhood

experiences—all of which he employs

as advisor at the Peer Advocate Program

where student advocates help other

students resolve problems, manage conflict,

and deal with stress and emotions.

Favorites

Teaching tool/resource: I love sharing my

wildlife, astronomy, and geology photos for science

lessons. It creates a personal connection to concepts

beyond the classroom.

Quote: “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can

change the world.”—Malala Yousafzai

Part of your day: Starting it with my peer

advocates. Their energy and spirit keep me going all day.

Way to unwind: Strategic board games and card

games that challenge me to think critically and plan

carefully. I also enjoy photography, especially of wildlife

and unique geology/landscapes.

Bryant has also led students on trips to

Mongolia, Russia, and Costa Rica, and

has worked for almost 20 years with

Watershed Education Summit where local

high school students do hands-on science

and water quality studies for the El Dorado

National Forest.

Describe yourself and your teaching style.

I’m a nerdy science guy. I especially love

astronomy and biology. As for my teaching

style, I'm interested in what my students

like to do and have to say. I try to connect

science to their lives and interests.

What are your hopes for your students? That

they become happy and healthy adults—

physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.

What's the biggest lesson you've learned

so far? That everyone has a story and if

you take the time to listen, you’ll find many

amazing people. Over the years, I’ve learned

as much from my students as they have

from me.

The Total Package

6 BOTTLE LABELS WE LOVE

by NELLY KISLYANKA

When it comes to beer and wine, what’s on the inside

really counts, but there’s no denying eye-catching labels

are what initially lure you in. A few local visionaries

create packaging that’s not only informational but

artistic, too—think bold lettering, distinct designs, and

pretty pictures with soulful stories. Keep reading for a

look behind six labels we love.

Pinot Meunier, for example, was made

with organic fruit sourced in Sonoma County by

Eric’s brother James. For their Zinfandel, Emily

and Eric chose to feature their nephew, Zander,

because they enjoyed the alliteration of Zander

Zinfandel. Eric’s favorite portrait, however, is his

grandmother gracing the Dolores Pinot Noir. “I

think it really captures not only her image but also

her personality,” he says.

Once Eric has decided what family member to

paint for a bottle, he starts his artistic process

by browsing old photo albums and digital artwork

to create a vision. Next comes Eric’s greatest

hurdle—starting to paint. But once he does, it

becomes a form of meditation to him. “It helps

me release my creative energy,” he says. Eric

exclusively paints his label portraits using oils

on wine barrel caps, except for some of the

original labels that came from older paintings

using mixed media. Once the painting is complete,

it’s photographed and handed off to Emily, who

designs a coordinating back-of-bottle label

complying with TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and

Trade Bureau) guidelines and sends it off to their

label printer.

Chateau Davell’s family and friends gather

quarterly to hand-bottle every wine—lovingly

filling, corking, and waxing each one. Their final

step is adhering the portraits to them. According

to Eric, “Emily likes to complain about how tedious

these days are, but she secretly loves spending a

day laughing and catching up with our loved ones.”

3020 Vista Tierra Drive, Camino, 530-644-2016,

chateaudavell.com

Chateau Davell

The labels of Chateau Davell’s wines

are a physical representation of their

guiding principle: family. In fact, owners

Emily and Eric Hays chose to name

their inaugural wine after their firstborn

child Charlotte. When she was

born, Eric painted her newborn portrait

on a wine barrel cap. When it came time

to create a label for Charlotte’s Cuvée,

they chose to feature her portrait as

a loving tribute. Since then, every label

has been adorned with one of Eric’s

paintings.

“There’s usually a correlation

between a wine and the family

member on the label,” says Eric. The

Findleton Estate Winery

A vineyard owned by a family of artists is bound

to forgo bland labels and produce exquisite works

of art for their wines. Pamela, the matriarch of

the Findleton family, is the artist responsible for

the stunning labels that adorn her namesake

winery’s bottles. Working with watercolors, she

creates a custom piece for every bottle. “Each

painting tells a story and has a relationship with

the varietal we pair it with,” Pamela says. Her

personal favorite, 20 years and 36 varietals

later, still remains the Carignon label—“a spiritual

collaboration” with her late grandmother who

was also an artist. While cleaning out her artist

studio, Pamela found an old painting created

by her grandmother, only to have it crumble in

her hands when she picked it up. “Saddened at

the loss, I immediately glued it to a canvas and

started painting using water media.” This piece,

still featuring her grandmother’s signature beside

her own, now adorns the Findleton Carignon.

After a painting is selected for a particular

wine, a high-quality image of it is sent to Pamela’s

daughter Jeanetta, who has a background in

fashion and graphic design. Jeanetta places it

on the signature dark green Findleton label and

pairs it with a new font. “We

show off the artwork as much

as possible and put all the legal

requirements on the back or

under the art. The paintings

featured on our labels set us

apart from other wineries; club

members often come into our

tasting room to purchase the

artwork they fell in love with on

the label,” says Jeanetta.

Loomis Basin Brewing Company

The original labels that graced Loomis Basin’s bottles

emulated fruit packaging labels—a nod to the city’s

history as an orchard town. As the brewery has grown

and switched to cans, however, they’ve updated their

labels, holding tight to their roots by keeping the frame

border, reminiscent of fruit crate labels from the turn

of the century.

Having worked with a variety of designers over the

years, the brewery recently decided to try their hand at

original designs with a collaboration between brewers

Ben Allgood and Brady Jones and taproom manager

Clancy McCrory. The process has been an adventure for

these first-time designers, requiring them to test their

creative juices and pick up new skills like Photoshop and

Illustrator. They have enjoyed digging into original designs

and revamping them for current use, as well as coming

up with new puns for the bottom row of text found on

every bottle. Something else the design team considers a

must-have for every bottle? Color. “We like our labels to

be bright, bold, and illustrated!” says Clancy.

Loomis Basin designs their labels by first selecting a

central focus feature, such as the throwback ’90s shapes

found on their Allgood IPA. In some cases, Clancy even

draws her own central feature, such as the sword-wielding

woman on the Nemesis Imperial IPA. Next, they decide

on a coordinating background. For Clancy, “It’s really

incredible to see a sketched-out design come to life.”

Charles Spinetta

Winery

Charles Spinetta has always

enjoyed wildlife art. After

meeting accomplished wildlife

artist and graphic designer Joe

Garcia on a hunting trip, he commissioned Garcia to

create the winery’s first art labels, which also became

the first full-color wine labels in the U.S.

Each label, either designed by Joe Garcia (joegarcia.

com) or Sherrie Russell Meline (wingbeat.com), features

wildlife in a different setting unique to Northern

California wildlands. “Our labels evoke memories of

enjoying wild spaces, and each painting shows an

appreciation for wildlife,” says Charles’ son Anthony.

The artists begin their process with a sketch and

then paint the animal—its pose, gaze, and the setting—

with their choice of colors and technique, but it’s

Charles who chooses which image belongs on which

wine label. The artist’s images are then handed off

to Paragon Label, who have won numerous printing

awards for said labels.

Charles Spinetta’s labels are works of art in muted

colors and intricate detail. Due to their

popularity, the Spinetta family have also

screened the paintings onto T-shirts. “We’ve

[also] issued a limited-edition print for each

of our wine labels, and they seem to pop up

everywhere. Walking into a restaurant, office,

or lodge and seeing one of our label prints on

the wall is always a treat,” says Anthony.

Lone Buffalo Vineyards

When Phil Maddux told his wife Jill that he was

launching his passion for winemaking into a

micro-brewery and that she was responsible for

naming the wines, she was excited to bring their

story to life. Jill told Phil they weren’t going to

have “boring” names that only stated what the wine was, but

instead names that would reflect the vineyard, buffalo, and the

wine itself. This determination to tell a story is embedded in all

that Lone Buffalo Vineyards does, especially their labels.

The original Lone Buffalo labels boasted a modern design,

but 10 years into the vineyard’s success, the Madduxes decided

they needed new labels more representative of the vineyard.

In collaboration with designer Darcey Self (galfridaycreative.

com), who stayed with the family to get a feel for what they’re

all about, they chose to keep their buffalo logo and bring

Native American inspiration to the labels. Nicknamed “Buffalo”

for his burly build and collection of buffalo art, Phil visited a

Santa Fe art gallery with Jill at the start of their venture and

were stopped in their tracks by artwork featuring a buffalo

walking “backwards” (from left to right), striking Jill as a

symbol of holding back time. Jill knew then that this buffalo

was the perfect logo for their vineyard—especially considering

Phil’s love for history, traditional winemaking techniques, and

naturalist lifestyle, and Jill’s studies in cultural anthropology.

Every bottle of Lone Buffalo’s wine has three components:

their trademark buffalo, a unique name, and a Native American

symbol. For example, their signature wine, a Rhône blend, is

named Where the Buffalo Roam and features a lodge. The lodge

symbol, which looks like a wagon wheel, stands for “permanent

home” in Native American culture. The Madduxes found it

fitting for their signature blend, because they had uprooted the

vineyard from South Auburn in 2013. Settling in North Auburn,

where they had more land to expand their operations, Lone

Buffalo Vineyards found its permanent home.

New Glory Craft Brewery

What steers New Glory

Craft Brewery’s design and

marketing team when creating

fresh labels is the company’s

fun and lighthearted culture.

Within their designs, they achieve this through bright colors

and abstract patterns.

One of the team’s design goals is to create labels that catch

the customer’s eye when perusing shelves of beer. “We want

our cans to be Instagramable and expressive,” says marketing

manager Stephanie Lewis. The hope is that each can is easily

recognizable as a New Glory brew. The team is careful to avoid

customer confusion amongst the bold designs though; the last

thing they want are labels that force customers to hunt for

information about what is within the can, says Stephanie. By

keeping a few key design elements—like logo placement, color

blocking, and type size—consistent across all designs, they

achieve both clarity and branding.

To create new labels, the design and marketing team

meets with the brewery’s production team to understand the

brew’s flavor profiles, special processes, and the brewing

team’s inspiration. With this information in hand, they can

create labels that accurately represent the beer. Since 2016,

they’ve collaboratively created 300 labels, with many more

in the works.

Make the Grade

5 BACK-TO-SCHOOL RULES

after more than a year "is going to be really

awkward." Lily Beach, 13, entering eighth grade

in Roseville, is an honors math student who

worries distance learning wasn’t rigorous

enough “to let me stay in advanced classes.”

by LINDA HOLDERNESSCue the cheers. California schools are

finally opening. And with the good

news, pandemic-weary students and

their parents welcome a return to

normal. But don’t breathe a sigh of

relief just yet. More challenges lie

ahead. The new normal won’t look like the old,

and the changes, even if for the better, may be

stressful, too. After a year and a half of adapting

to distance learning and missing friends, students

will need to readjust once more.

Consider: The time of Covid was more than 20%

of a seven-year-old’s life and 10% of a 15-yearolds.

Most students look different now and

may have lost confidence in their social skills

or worry they’ve fallen behind academically.

Akkshey Vikram Raj, a Folsom 12-year-old,

missed sixth grade, the year he would have

transitioned to a new school with multiple

classes. "I’m going to be lost all over the place,"

he says, adding that seeing his friends again

The pandemic caught us by surprise, but this time

parents can plan. These tips from local therapists

and educators may help.

1 Encourage your child to talk about concerns

then listen reflectively, urges Lauren Simas, a

licensed marriage and family therapist in Folsom.

Respond with statements that show you

understand your child’s emotions—"So you feel …"

or "You’re wondering if …"—without adding your

own perspective. Reflective listening offers

empathy without judgment and helps your child

clarify conflicting feelings.

2 Reassure your child she is safe. Young people

are least likely to catch the virus. With

precautions, like masks, which are still required

in school buildings, and measures to combat the

virus—powerful disinfectants, air filtration, hand

sanitizers, distancing—the chance your child will

become sick at school is very low. The good news

is there is almost no risk out of doors so masks

aren’t needed at recess.

3 Let your child know they will be

fine academically. Even though

students may have missed some

information last year, they will catch

up. Placer County uses an accelerated

learning program that research shows

works. With accelerated learning, the

schools keep kids at grade level no

matter what they missed. "We see a

high degree of achievement with

acceleration rather than pausing for

remedial instruction," says Placer

County Superintendent of Schools

Gayle Garbolino-Mojica. "We will make

sure we are able to bridge any gap the

pandemic may have created."

4 Help your children acclimate

gradually. "We haven’t been in

social situations for a long time, in kid

time—make sure you don’t overconnect

them," says Nancy Ryan,

licensed marriage and family therapist

and owner of Relationship Therapy

Center in Roseville and Fair Oaks.


We haven’t

been in

social

situations

for a long

time, in kid

time—make

sure you

don’t overconnect

them.


Also, with parents and children both

working from home, children have

gotten used to being with their

parents and they like it, even if they

pretend they don’t, Ryan says.

Continuing family time is valuable as

the kids readjust.

5 Be alert to signs of anxiety.

Watch for isolation, irritability,

difficulty sleeping, lack of motivation,

and concerns about safety. To help

ease stress, Ryan suggests boxbreathing:

Breathe in for four counts,

hold four counts, breathe out four

counts, then hold again for four

counts. Repeat five times. Older

students may be helped by visualizing

a beach or field of flowers.

“There is great excitement in the

school community to resume ‘normal’

operation,” says Garbolino-Mojica.

“We are working hard this summer to

make sure we do just that.”

of friends and family,

Fireside Pizza Company

(firesidepizza.com) has

become one of the

region’s most beloved

places for fresh-baked

pies. Wondering what

to order? The Pear

PRE-HIKE

STRETCHES

Stretching is

a key factor

in preventing

Leg Swings.

Lock one leg,

hold onto

something for

balance, and

swing the other

leg.

Benefits:

Stretches your

hamstrings and

engages the

quadriceps.

Calf Stretch.

From standing,

step one leg

back into a lunge

position. Bend

your front knee

and straighten

your back leg,

keeping your

the ground. The

more distance

between your

legs, the deeper

the stretch.

Benefits: Warms

ASK THE

EXPERTS

by EMILY PETER-COREY

Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE

LONG-TERM BENEFITS OF

GETTING REGULAR MASSAGES?

A: Relaxation is one of the most

loved benefits of massage therapy;

long-term, however, your wellbeing

is improved through regular

massage by reducing physical and

emotional stress. What’s more, it

provides relief from depression

and anxiety by promoting the

release of dopamine and serotonin.

Long-term massage therapy also

relieves muscle pain; eases joint

pain by increasing blood flow to

sore and stiff joints; and improves

mobility, posture, and your health.

Regular massage therapy is

beneficial to support a healthy,

active lifestyle.

Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET

FAMILY PORTRAITS DONE?

A: I encourage families with

children under 10 years old—

especially those with babies and

toddlers—to book twice a year,

so they can reflect upon how

much (and how quickly!) their

kiddos change over the years. The

majority book in late summer or

early fall for holiday cards, but I’m

able to accommodate whatever

works best for each family.

ona Sinor, founder of

Ironhorse Interior

Design (ih-id.com),

has nearly two decades of

home remodels and

redesigns. Since launching

her full-service firm, Sinor

has been involved in every

project—working closely with

clients to achieve their

desired goals.

Focusing on design

layouts; new construction

(exterior and interior);

3D and hand renderings;

custom designs, furniture,

and accessories; conceptual

landscape design, and more.

“The collaboration of genuine

hands-on hard work and the luxury

of high-end style is the philosophy

that every one of our projects is

based on,” she says.

For a recent home renovation

project, she and her company

flipped this house in a fourmonth

renovation (after the

design was finalized) with a

$100,000 budget. “Our design

goals—to develop a high-level

design style and make a nice

profit—were achieved,” Sinor

says. “The house sold for more

than a home down the street that

was 1,000 square feet larger.”

For this flip, the kitchen was

fully renovated. And with such a

big project, problems are likely to

occur. “The most challenging issue

that arose was moving plumbing

in the concrete slab so we could

put the sink and dishwasher in the

island,” Sinor says. “It cost around

$6,000, but it was money well

spent to achieve the layout.” As a

solution to save money elsewhere,

they used the existing kitchen

cabinets and repurposed them.

Additional projects included

renovating the bathroom finishes

and adding faux beams in the

great room. All new wood flooring,

window treatments, and fresh

paint and texture were also added

throughout the house.

While this was an in-house

project for Ironhorse Interior

Design, the team was very happy

with the outcome and finished

It’s important

to have your

team lined

up prior to

starting any

construction.



home. “We more than doubled our

money and created a space that an

active family of five is now enjoying.”

If you’re thinking about your own

home renovation, Sinor has two

tips for all homeowners to think

about. “The number one question

homeowners should ask themselves

is where they will be living during

the renovation. Dust, noise, and other

inconveniences can add stress to a

household,” she says. “Although we

take all precautions to make our

renovations be as pleasant as possible,

the fact is, there is no way around

having to deal with these factors.”

Having a plan is just as imperative,

too. “It’s important to have your

team lined up prior to starting any

construction. Having a budget, a design,

and a project calendar will ensure

your remodel runs smoothly and your

budget stays intact,” she says.

When it comes to seafood, the world is your oyster. Whether

you prefer hearty fare like fish & chips, lobster-studded

sushi, or perfectly prepared poke, our region is full of

must-devour dishes starring the sea’s most mouthwatering

treasures. Dive into this list of our favorites...

AUGUST 2021 | stylemg.com 57


Scallops call for delicate handling,

and no one knows that better than

Bacchus House Bistro. Their Fresh

Day Boat Scallops are fine dining

at its finest. Pan-seared to perfection,

they’re served with a vibrant Meyer

lemon beurre blanc on a bed of the

restaurant’s signature risotto alongside

organic micro greens.

FUN FACT: Searing scallops enhances

their sweetness and makes them a

surefire match with chardonnay—of

which Bacchus House has plenty.

1004 East Bidwell Street, Suite 100, Folsom,

916-984-7500, bacchushousebistro.com

You may have heard seafood and cheese

are an unsavory combo, but one bite of

the Garlic Shrimp Pizza at Iron Horse

Tavern and you’ll realize some rules are

meant to be broken. The hand-crafted pie

boasts a delightfully chewy crust with just

enough crispness, plus parmesan cream

sauce, fontina, chili flakes, cilantro, red

onions, and the namesake garlic shrimp.

For fans of fish and pizza, it’s a match

made in foodie heaven.

FUN FACT: In Italy, fish is a somewhat

common pizza topping—particularly

Italian tuna packed in olive oil, along

with anchovies, shellfish, and shrimp.

460 Palladio Parkway, Folsom, 916-618-4322;

1800 15th Street, Suite B, Sacramento,

916-448-4488, ironhrosetavern.net

Folsom Palace’s Hong Kong-Style

Bird’s Nest is essentially a work of art. A

fried noodle “bowl” is loaded with seafood

(scallops, prawns, calamari, and crab meat)

and vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, snow

peas, chayote, carrots, shiitake mushrooms,

celery, and green onions)—all flavored with

aromatic garlic and ginger and tossed in a

house-made white wine sauce.

FUN FACT: Bird’s nests are usually served at

high-end Chinese restaurants specializing in

Cantonese cuisine and may also be seen at

traditional 10-course Chinese banquets for

weddings or other special occasions.

1169 Riley Street, Folsom, 916-983-8880; 3941 Park

Drive, Suite 10, El Dorado Hills, 916-936-0808,

Hot days call for cool dishes, like the

refreshing El Rey Ceviche—served

tostada-style with shrimp, cucumbers,

onions, cilantro, and tomatoes in a

citrus marinade—at Granite Bay’s El

Rey. With three to a serving, it’s the

perfect shareable and satisfies without

completely stuffing you.

FUN FACT: Ceviche is a Latin American

recipe for raw fish and seafood

marinated in citrus juice (mainly lime

and lemon). The juice’s acidity breaks

down the protein in the fish and

replicates the process of heat being

applied to the meat.

Cascada’s Camarones Sante Fe

has all the celebratory flavors of our

neighbors down south. Shrimp is

sautéed with butter, garlic, and spicy

Southwest seasonings, and sprinkled

with parmesan cheese. This fiery

fiesta is served with cilantro rice

and vegetables (zucchini, snow peas,

broccoli, and red bell peppers) for a

non-boring nosh.

FUN FACT: A decadent dinner calls for

dessert, and Cascada has it all—from

churros and cheesecake chimichangas

to sopapillas and flan.

384 Main Street, Placerville, 530-344-7757,

cascadainplacerville.com

Plank Craft Kitchen + Bar is still

relatively new to the block, but their Cedar

Plank Salmon guarantees they’re here

to stay. A gorgeous fillet of North Atlantic

salmon is cooked to perfection on a cedar

plank, absorbing the flavors and moisture

of the warmed wood. In case that isn’t

enough flavor, the salmon is given a crust

of Japanese panko crumbs, spicy chorizo

sausage, Italian parsley, and tangy lemon

zest, then drizzled with a buttery lemon

beurre blanc. Served with your item of

choice from Plank’s “Marketplace Sides”

menu, you’re in for a memorable meal.

FUN FACT: The Marketplace Sides menu

features chilled, lighter fare, like an

avocado, cherry tomato, and pine nut

salad tossed in lime vinaigrette.

Hisui Sushi photo by Ray Burgess. Wally's Pizza Bar photo courtesy of Wally's Pizza Bar.

Crispy Calamari is a perfect seafood

starter—especially at Wally's Pizza

Bar. Lightly battered and fried,

allowing the flavor of the fish to shine,

it's served with fresh-cut lemons and

zesty marinara dipping sauce. Tender on

the inside with a golden-brown crust,

this must-order appetizer is always a

crowd-pleaser.

FUN FACT: Calamari is the Italian

word for squid. It originated in the

Mediterranean and quickly spread into

North America as a popular deep-fried

dish in the mid-'80s.

4079 Cameron Park Drive, Cameron Park,

530-677-5205, wallyspizzabar.com

Hisui Sushi’s Chirashi

Don is a treat for the senses.

Donburi is typically a rice

bowl (akin to deconstructed

sushi) and a serving of it

promises the chef’s choicest

fresh fish and complimentary

accompaniments artfully

placed over sushi rice.

FUN FACT: Chirashi might

sound like a poke bowl, but

there’s a difference. Poke

bowls tend to be one or

two types of fish (tuna and

salmon) marinated in a sauce

and served on white rice,

brown rice, or salad; chirashi

has no sauce and uses several

types of fish, including

tuna, salmon, yellowtail, eel,

shrimp, and roe.

Heyday Café serves up

a refreshing Skuna Bay

Salmon Tartare marinated

in a citrus ginger marinade

with capers, cucumbers,

green onions, avocado, and

micro fennel, to be spooned

atop a toasted baguette. It’s a

perfect, not-too-heavy starter

to prepare your palate for

one (or more) of Heyday’s

exceptional entrées.

FUN FACT: Skuna Bay

salmon is a sustainably

farmed food that’s not only

good for human health but

kind to the health of the

environment, too.

530-626-9700, heydaycafe.com

Based on the beautiful hue and aroma of the

Prawn Red Curry from Thai Paradise, you

know you’re in for a treat before you even take a

bite. Red chili curry paste gives the rich coconut

milk base of this dish its eye-catching color, to

which green beans, eggplant, bamboo, red bell

peppers, and fresh Thai basil are added. Mixed

into this medley are a generous portion of

large prawns. Ladled over a soft bed of rice, it’s

Thailand’s take on savory comfort food.

FUN FACT: Thai Paradise’s co-owner and head

chef, Jarunee Fleming, earned her culinary

skills working in a five-star hotel in Bangkok.

Goose Port Public House’s

Spicy Poke Nachos brings

sashimi-grade tuna, serrano chilis,

pineapple, green onions, sriracha

aioli, wasabi soy, sesame teriyaki, and

crispy wonton chips together for an

upgraded version of “fish and chips.”

to up your raw seafood game.

Soak up the suds at Bricks Eats

& Drinks with their hearty Tuna

Melt. Layered with cheddar, onions,

savory house-made tuna salad, and

a hefty helping of creamy avocado

on grilled marble rye bread, it puts

tinned tuna subs to shame and is

the perfect midday meal—especially

alongside one of the eatery’s

seriously scrumptious salads or an

order of sweet potato planks.

FUN FACT: Instead of reservations,

Bricks has a “fast pass” that allows

you to get the first available table

ahead of any walk-ins.

482 Main Street, Placerville, 530-303-3480,

Although Bar 101 offers elevated

pub fare, they keep their handdipped,

beer-battered Fish & Chips

without any frills, giving the people

exactly what they want: flaky cod

encased in a never-soggy-alwayscrisp

golden shell alongside housemade

tartar sauce and freshly fried

chips that are always on point.

FUN FACT: For the quintessential

pub experience to go with your

fish & chips, attend Bar 101’s trivia

night on Mondays, open mic on

Wednesdays, or live music on

Fridays and Saturdays.

The Macadamia Nut Crusted Pacific

Halibut from Scott’s Seafood

Roundhouse is an elegant dinner perfect

on a night out. Beautifully flaky halibut

is dressed in a crunchy macadamia nut

crust, cooked to perfection, and finished

with browned butter. Served alongside

the fish are the season’s ripest veggies and

the kitchen’s unusual but oh-so-satisfying

coconut-cilantro rice topped with mango

chutney—a savory condiment slow-cooked

to sweet, spicy, and tangy perfection.

FUN FACT: To uphold their commitment to

only serving the freshest quality seafood,

Scott’s substitutes the equally flaky

seabass for the halibut in off seasons.

824 Sutter Street, Folsom, 916-989-6711,

scottsseafoodroundhouse.com

You can never go wrong with Prawn

Fajitas—especially at La Rosa

Blanca. The succulent crustaceans

are marinated in a house special

sauce and combined with onions,

bell peppers, and tomatoes to make

the perfect, build-your-own bite.

FUN FACT: La Rosa Blanca brings

the fiesta every day of the week

with Taco Tuesdays ($2.25 tacos),

Classic Wednesdays (classic cars

get a discount), Thirsty Thursdays

($7 margaritas), and Fiesta Fridays

($24.95 platter for two).

Folsom Tap House offers a

Honey Walnut Prawns entrée

served over rice that’s brimming

with bright flavors and varied

textures. Generous with the prawns

and the candied walnuts, the dish

is topped with nutty sesame seeds

and pungent green onions to

complement the sweetness.

FUN FACT: Folsom Tap House offers

around 20 bottled beers plus 22 beers

on tap—including four on nitro.

Main Street Tap House has a

delicious dinner option of Grilled

Salmon if you ever have the

hankering for good fish. Paired

with a fragrant coconut, lime, and

basil sauce, the fillet is treated with

utmost care and served with herbed

rice and veggies.

FUN FACT: Grilled salmon pairs nicely

with a classic pilsner—which you

should have no trouble finding here.

209 Main Street, Placerville, 530-330-4648,

taphouseonmainstreet.com

The Independent Restaurant

and Bar has a gorgeous Ahi Niçoise

Salad. Sesame-crusted yellowfin tuna is

seared and laid on a bed of mixed greens,

accompanied by a boiled egg, bistro olives,

potatoes, beans, and fried capers—all

tossed in a light lemon Dijon vinaigrette.

The salad is so wholesome and filling you’ll

want for nothing more…except maybe their

chocolate pot de crème!

FUN FACT: Salade Niçoise is a salad that

originated in the French city of Nice. It is

traditionally made of tomatoes, hardboiled

eggs, Niçoise olives, and anchovies

or tuna then dressed with olive oil.

629 Main Street, Placerville, 530-344-7645,

independentplacerville.com

Bennett’s Kitchen Bar Market

has an array of seafood dishes to

choose from—think fresh Alaskan

halibut fillet and blackened Pacific

redfish—but their heaping bowl of

Steamed Mussels doused in a

savory garlic butter sauce and served

with parmesan bread takes the cake

for its simplicity and elegance.

FUN FACT: Mussels are a great source

of iodine, vitamin B12, selenium, zinc,

and folate—so load up!

If you’re longing for lobster, Land

Ocean New American Grill offers

Twin 6 oz. Cold Water Lobster Tails

bathed in an intoxicating herbed butter

accompanied by coconut jasmine rice

and broccolini. You could also try their

surf and turf option, but why pass on the

chance for double the lobster?

FUN FACT: Cold water lobsters are

bigger and better in flavor and texture

than their warm water counterparts.

They also tend to be slightly more

expensive as a result.

When you can’t decide on one type

of sashimi, why not try all of them?

Hasu Teriyaki & Sushi serves

a Sashimi Combo consisting of

salmon, tuna, and yellowtail (hamachi)

for that refined seafood palate. The

delicately sliced fish is presented in

all its glory bringing you freshness

and flavors straight from the sea.

FUN FACT: Sashimi is an appetizer

meant to be had before sushi. To

aid digestion, begin your meal with

miso soup.

The Cioppino from Visconti’s

Ristorante takes fish stew to luxurious

levels with top-tier seafood—calamari, jumbo

prawns, New Zealand green-lipped mussels,

and last but certainly not least, Day Boat

scallops. The latter are nicknamed “jewels of

the sea,” because being harvested by small

fleets, packed on ice, and never treated with

preservative chemicals guarantees the most

delicate texture and flavor. The shellfish are

prepared in an aromatic broth of white wine,

garlic, Italian herbs and spices, and marinara

reduction sauce, then served with salad and

house-made garlic bread.

FUN FACT: Legend has it that New

Zealand green-lipped mussels are packed

with health benefits and can even be

La Provence Restaurant &

Terrace makes a comforting yet

indulgent Lobster Risotto from

cold water lobster claw meat. Cheeses

like mascarpone and parmesan bring

a depth of flavor while fresh arugula

and spring onions brighten the

overall flavor palate.

FUN FACT: La Provence hosts wine

dinners, which entail a five-course

meal with individual wine pairings

from a selected cellar. Check their

website for details.

When you think of the coast, great

seafood comes to mind, of course.

The Coastal Rice from Mezcalito

Oaxacan Cuisine invokes the best

of coastal cuisine with fresh salmon,

mussels, and prawns lavishly decorating

soft rice. Fresh, seasonal veggies—like

garlic, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and

Fresno peppers (a mildly hot and smoky

chili pepper)—are added then mixed

with a touch of cream sauce. One

bite and you’ll be transported to your

favorite seaside bistro.

FUN FACT: Oaxaca, one of the 32

states that make up Mexico, is known

as a gastronomic hub, thanks in part

to its legendary seven moles.

Fresh and light perfectly describes

the Atlantic Salmon BLT from

Wise Villa Winery. The farm-tofork

bistro overlooking the vineyard

piles tender Atlantic salmon (the

“king of fish”), applewood smoked

bacon, crunchy lettuce, and tomatoes

onto soft multigrain bread spread

with tangy basil aioli. Served

with French fries, it’s a simple but

satisfying midday meal.

FUN FACT: Order a glass of Wise Villa’s

zinfandel for the perfect pairing.

4200 Wise Road, Lincoln, 916-543-0323,

wisevillawinery.com

Hawks—one of our region’s most wellreceived

restaurants—has been at the

forefront of farm-to-fork fare since opening

in 2007. From plates that change based

on what produce can be picked, to their

chef’s immaculate attention to detail,

and sophisticated-without-being-stuffy

ambiance, it’s the perfect place to celebrate

a special occasion and enjoy dishes like

Wild Alaskan Halibut. Fresh-caught and

butchered in-house, then skillfully seared

and pan-roasted, it’s served with baby

butter beans, roasted red peppers, and a

rich Romesco sauce.

FUN FACT: The largest flatfish within the

flounder family, male halibuts typically won’t

grow to be over 100 pounds whereas the

females can live longer and grow to 600

pounds or more.

The Prawn Chow Fun from

Lotus 8 is just that—FUN! Chow

fun is a popular Cantonese stir-fried

rice noodle, flat and wide in shape,

with a delightfully chewy texture.

Lotus 8 stir-fries their noodles in a

sweet and savory brown sauce with

crunchy bean sprouts and green

onions, but the real fun of this dish

are the large, fresh prawns.

FUN FACT: Lotus 8 was strategically

named by combining two traditional

symbols of beauty and luck within

Chinese culture—the lotus flower and

the number 8.

With two decades of experience

dishing up authentic Italian cuisine,

it’s no wonder Papa Gianni’s

Ristorante makes a delizioso

Frutta di Mare. Mussels, shrimp,

and buttery scallops are sauteed in

a white wine, garlic, and light cream

sauce and served over delicate,

perfectly chewy linguine. Served with

garlic bread, you’ll be craving this

entrée long after the final forkful.

FUN FACT: Frutti di mare is Italian

for ”fruit of the sea.”

Sienna Modern Kitchen’s Thai

Chili Alaskan Halibut is all about

layers of mouthwatering flavor. The mild

and slightly sweet essence of the white

meat halibut is the perfect base for a

macadamia nut crust and fresh pineapple

salsa topping, which is then stacked on a

bed of cilantro rice drizzled with sweet

and tangy house-made Thai chili sauce

that’ll have you hankering for more.

FUN FACT: Halibut contains a trace

mineral called selenium, an antioxidant

that helps decrease inflammation and

repair damaged cells.

You can’t get Honey Walnut

Prawns anywhere else like you can

at Sunny Garden Restaurant.

The caramelized sweetness and

perfect crunch rise above the rest.

Fresh prawns are battered and fried

to a lightly golden color, then coated

in a creamy, sweet honey sauce.

Crunchy caramelized walnuts finish

off this seafood stunner.

FUN FACT: Honey walnut prawns

are a popular banquet dish because

both shrimp and walnuts carry good

omen in Chinese culture.

You can’t go wrong with the Grilled

Fish Tacos from Mexquite when

you’re craving a taste of the sea. Wild

caught Icelandic cod is seasoned

with salt, pepper, chili powder,

paprika, and garlic, then grilled and

served over a cheesy corn tortilla.

Each taco is topped with crunchy

iceberg, cilantro lime dressing, and

pickled onions marinated in vinegar,

salt, lime juice, and oregano.

FUN FACT: In addition to great

food, Mexquite is beloved for its

festive atmosphere and lengthy

margarita menu.

916-984-8607, mexquite.com

The Farfalle al Salmone from

Vaiano Trattoria is a true taste

of Tuscany, and it’s no wonder

considering two of the restaurant’s

founding partners were born in Italy.

Garlic and white wine are sautéed

with marinara and cream to create

a rosé sauce. Next, fresh-chopped

smoked salmon is added, followed by

bowtie pasta and spinach.

FUN FACT: Vaiano, after which

the restaurant is named, is the

hometown to two of the restaurant’s

founding members.

When craving something warm and

comforting, order the Seafood Pho

from Pho Mimi. Chicken broth and

rice noodles are the perfect base for

the showstoppers of this Vietnamese

soup: shrimp, squid, and delicate

scallops. Topped with white onions,

fresh green onions, and cilantro,

then served with bean sprouts,

Thai basil, lime wedges, and sliced

jalapeños, this fresh-made meal is

equal parts healthy and hearty.

FUN FACT: Pho is pronounced

fuh and is typically eaten for

breakfast in Vietnam.

916-542-7913, phomimi.com

Relish Burger Bar wanted to bring

some California flair to a Louisiana

classic when creating their EDH Po’

Boy. All-natural shrimp are dipped in

seasoned tempura batter (lighter than

most other batters because it contains no

breadcrumbs, which means it requires

less oil) and fried to a beautiful golden

brown, then sandwiched in a roll with

crunchy cilantro lime slaw, tart pickled

jalapeños, and house-made roasted garlic

aioli. This seafood sandwich is served with

your choice of salad or French fries.

FUN FACT: The po’ boy originated in

New Orleans and was named after the

“poor boy” on strike in the 1920s for

whom the original sandwich was created.

Lobster isn’t the only seafood the

Lobstermania Roll from Mikuni

Japanese Restaurant & Bar

boasts; the addition of scallops, shrimp,

crab mix, and salmon make this roll a

serious seafood party. Asparagus and

cream cheese are stuffed into the mix,

too, with an array of creamy, sweet

sauces and crunchy arare.

FUN FACT: Arare is a bite-sized Japanese

cracker with a soy sauce flavor.

Can’t decide between oysters,

ceviche, prawn cocktail, or

Alaskan king crab legs? Neither

can we. Luckily, at C. Knight’s

Steakhouse you can have all the

above in their big, bold, beautiful

Seafood Platter. Perfect for a

party of two, it’s easy on the eyes

and satisfying on the stomach.

Served atop crushed ice with all

the requisite sides and sauces

(mignonette, cocktail sauce, and

melted butter) it’s a richly refreshing

way to kick-off a meal at El Dorado

Hills’ most beloved steakhouse.

FUN FACT: Seafood platters,

known as plateau de fruits de

mer (plate of fruits of the sea),

are a traditional French feast

that typically include a variety

of shellfish (mussels, shrimp,

lobsters, crabs, clams, and

oysters) served cold. Usually,

they’re eaten with bread and a

bottle of crisp white wine.

Exploring Edinburgh

5 ESSENTIAL EXPERIENCES

by TOM MAILEY

Edinburgh Castle

It was February, pre-pandemic, and we didn’t

know what to expect in Edinburgh, Scotland.

To be honest, we picked this city (pronounced

ED-in-burrah) as our first place ever to visit

abroad because, well, an acquaintance owns a

flat there and offered it at an off-season price

we couldn’t refuse. Thus, winter weather kept

us ducking in and out of doorways all week.

Snow, wind, cloudbursts…we were hit by all

of it, often all within minutes. But there is

no bad weather, just bad gear, right? So, we

came prepared, and the upside was crowds

were light, lines were nil, and the pubs all felt

that much warmer when we stepped inside.

Our flat was in the “new

town” part of Edinburgh

(meaning it was built

a mere two and half

centuries ago, after

the “old town” became

impossibly overcrowded

(more on that later). But

we found both sections

to be vibrant and incredibly walkable for anyone

in reasonably good shape; we crushed our

10,000 Fitbit steps every day we were there.

Part of our pre-planning was to sketch out a

game plan, and we were glad we did, especially

since we were only there a week. We arrived

with a good basic idea of Edinburgh (I’m a

dork for history so did a pretty deep dive

into the city’s rich and storied past; my wife

researched shopping, dining, and modern points

of interest). Even though we knew

what we wanted to see, do, and

experience, we still left room for

some improvisation—like spending

an unplanned afternoon in an old

pub drinking cider and listening to

Scottish folk music after stumbling

on an impromptu jam session (the

upright bass player was working a

crossword puzzle between songs).

Or the day that, on a whim, we

caught a train two hours north to

the beautiful riverside village of

Pitlochry at the doorstep of the

Cairngorm mountains.

Our take away (which is also what

they call “take out,” fyi)…? Our

brief visit was a fulfilling first

glimpse of a friendly, thriving city

and country we cannot wait to go

back to and explore more deeply.

These highlights were part of our

basic outline.

1VISIT EDINBURGH CASTLE

Edinburgh’s past is present,

always and often literally, starting

with this ancient fortress built atop

the plug of an extinct volcano. It can

be seen from nearly everywhere in

the city and is impossible to ignore.

In fact, it’s where the city began.

That Mary Queen of Scots gave

birth to her only heir here is just one

of its many fascinating stories. In

summer, lines can be long, so buy

your pass ahead of time—or do like

we did and visit in a snowstorm.

TAKE A HIKE

2 The weather was too blustery

for us to conquer Arthur’s Seat,

another extinct volcano rising above

the Palace of Holyroodhouse, but

we did hit Calton Hill. This 338-foot

knob just off the urban buzz of the

Royal Mile is a great place for views:

the city, distant hills, the bay (called

hike but well worth it. Plus, it’s dotted

with several time-worn monuments,

including a tower that looks like a

telescope and an old jail that looks

like a castle.

3NATIONAL MUSEUM OF

SCOTLAND

A beautiful, mind-blowing place

that we visited twice…and still only

saw maybe a quarter of. Learn

the history of Scotland, including

drama from royal families that

makes the Kardashians seem like

the Waltons. Plus, there’s so, so

much more. And, it’s free.

4PALACE OF

HOLYROODHOUSE

Completed in the 17th century (but

with some parts of the grounds

dating back much further), the

palace anchors the lower end of

the Royal Mile. It is the “Official

Residence of the Queen,” and she

still visits annually. Of course, it

too is steeped in royal history

but also features changing

exhibitions; we took in a visiting

collection of original drawings

from Leonardo Da Vinci (he was

pretty good).

5THE ROYAL MILE

All of it. Travel writer Rick

Steves describes this street as

“one of Europe’s best sightseeing

walks” and, indeed, it is packed

with pubs, shops, five-star

restaurants, pubs, ancient

churches, tearooms, pubs, whisky

tasting, hotels and, did I mention

pubs? But don’t just eat, drink,

and shop; take time to learn the

street’s backstory. We hired a

guide and were glad we did: At

one time Edinburgh was one of

the most densely packed cities in

the world, with tens of thousands

living along this one stretch of

commerce. That overcrowding

led to the building of some of the

world’s first high-rise buildings,

many of which became, over

time, squalid tenements for the

poorest residents. It’s fascinating

and reminds you that while royals

may have done some high living

here, the bulk of the residents

who helped create this beautiful

city did not.

Dining Out

Plank Craft

Kitchen + Bar

by LORN RANDALL | photos by DANTE FONTANA

Dre's BBQ Burger

Burgers

are a

mainstay

at

Plank,

and they

do them

well.



You never know what

it’s going to take for a

restaurant to be successful

these days. Ever since Covid,

the old standards have gone

by the wayside and forced

new models of operation. It seems more

and more of us are looking to make our

dining experience simpler and more

comfortable—hence the popularity of

comfort food.

Michael Sanson, restauranteur and

owner of Historic Folsom’s newest

eatery, Plank Craft Kitchen + Bar, has

acknowledged and embraced that

concept. His remodel of the building

at 608 Sutter Street is a relaxed

atmosphere of wood and warmth,

including the bar that he painstakingly

refinished by hand.

I sat at said bar and sampled a few

items from the lunch menu. First, I went

82 stylemg.com | AUGUST 2021 | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


Buttermilk-Baked Chicken Sandwich

Southern comfort—as in Nashville hot

chicken wings. Having sweated my

way through the original (reputedly)

at Prince’s in Nashville, I was hoping

these were a bit tamer. They were even

possibly a bit too tame for chicken

bearing the “Nashville hot” moniker.

Plank bakes their wings (fine with me),

unlike the deep-fried version doused

with cayenne that Prince’s lover served

him the morning after he cheated on

her in the 1930s. The rest is chicken

history.

Next up, a tasty rendition of one of

my favorites: roasted beet salad. Spring

mix, roasted beets, toasted walnuts,

green onions, and goat cheese with

honey dijon vinaigrette combined for

a refreshing, healthy starter—or an

entrée with the addition of one of five

available proteins. Either way, you can’t

go wrong if you like roasted beets.

Burgers are a mainstay at Plank,

and they do them well. I got the

Dre’s BBQ burger at the risk of being

redundant, because that’s what I

like on a burger. A 1/3 pound of beef,

lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese,

zesty BBQ sauce, applewood smoked

bacon, and a crunchy, fat, onion ring

on brioche proved to be as good as

it looked. I could’ve opted for their

panko-crusted, buttermilk-baked

chicken sandwich with fried green

tomatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon aioli,

and bourbon-bacon slaw, but that will

be a must-try on my next visit.

Another forward-thinking idea

from Mike and his team is the

“Marketplace Sides”—four lighter

additions that take the place of the

usual fries, tots, or rings. I ordered

Roasted Beet Salad

avocado, cherry tomatoes, and pine nuts

meal. Though a small upcharge, it was

well worth it, in my opinion.

ordering the cheesecake (both are made

There’s a new sandwich shop in town, and if you’re a fan of quality

then Timmy Ginger’s is the place to try. Located on the corner of

Pleasant Grove and Foothills Boulevard, TG’s serves up 32 specialty

sandwiches (16 meat and 16 vegan), as well as build-your-own options, salads,

sides, and a kids’ menu. It was nice to see a line of folks ordering (including some first responders) and

dining both inside and out on the patio. I ordered a #2: brisket with creamy horseradish,

coleslaw, bacon, and house dressing on a sweet roll (they offer seven bread options). I

sat indoors and watched my beloved San Francisco Giants on the TV while uptempo music played

over their sound system. The brisket was lean and flavorful, and the house-made coleslaw added a

freshness to the meaty behemoth. The next day, I returned for another round, this time opting

for one of the intriguing vegan options, the #18, with a decidedly un-vegan name: Hot

Chicken. The menu lists it with hot chicken, bacon, avocado, provolone,

house slaw, and “kicken sauce”—all of which are plant-based and decidedly

delicious…easily one of the better vegan sandwiches I’ve had. Owner Tim, aka

Timmy Ginger, goes the extra mile by not using things like prepackaged shredded

lettuce and cheap cuts of meat. What’s more, he makes all the sauces in-house,

including vegan mayonnaise. When the sandwich craving hits, stop by and grab one

of Timmy Ginger’s (soon-to-be famous) specialty sandwiches—made fresh to order!

by MEGAN WISKUS

Cooking, for many, is cathartic. No matter your comfort level

in the kitchen, we have some tips and tricks to ensure every

meal you make is mouthwatering.

TASTE YOUR FOOD AS YOU GO.

Ingredients vary in flavor depending

on the season, ripeness, or (if not

fresh) brand. Tasting your food as you

go ensures you can adjust for all these

variables every time.

DON’T BE AFRAID OF HIGH HEAT.

Seems obvious but so much flavor

comes from searing and sautéing at

those high temperatures. You may

have been burned in the past by high

heat, but with the right cookware

for the task at hand, those high

temperatures are the key to building

flavor without overcooking your

ingredients.

LEARN THE “WHY”. We often get

tripped up by thinking that if we’re

missing an ingredient for a recipe,

we can’t move forward, which is

almost never the case! Learning

why an ingredient is there and what

it’s adding (sweet, salty, umami,

leavening) can open you up to a world

of substitutions (like when

making chimichurri). When

in doubt? Ask the Internet!

Chimichurri

1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley (about 1 bunch)

1 cup fresh cilantro (about 1 bunch)

1/2 cup red onion, diced (sub: 1 shallot)

3 tbsp. fresh oregano (sub: leave out)

3-5 cloves of garlic, peeled

2 tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice (sub: orange juice

with an extra splash of vinegar)

2 tbsp. red wine vinegar (sub: champagne or apple

cider vinegar)

¼ tsp. salt (or more to taste)

¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 jalapeño, stems and seeds removed to reduce

spice, as desired (sub: red pepper flake or a few

dashes of your favorite hot sauce)

1/2-3/4 cup high-quality olive oil

Add all ingredients except the olive oil

to a food processor; pulse a few times

until chopped. Slowly stream in the olive

oil, while pulsing the mixture a few more

times until the olive oil is combined,

stopping to scrape down the sides of the

food processor if needed. Add olive oil

until sauce reaches desired consistency.

Serve immediately or refrigerate in a

sealed container for up to 3 days.

Wondering what to do with leftover

chimichurri sauce? Get creative! Try

stirring it into soups, pasta dishes,

dolloped on top of a baked potato, or

over your morning eggs to add a bright,

fresh, and flavorful punch.

Cranberry, Pistachio, & Honey Energy Bites

1 cup dates, pits removed

1 cup dried cranberries

1 cup pistachios

2 tsp. honey

ADDING A SQUEEZE OF ABOUT HALF

A LEMON to roasted or sautéed

vegetables helps to brighten the flavors.

Make sure to add it toward the end once

the vegetables are cooked.

WHEN A RECIPE CALLS FOR MELTED

BUTTER, BROWN IT in a saucepan on

your stove instead to create a more

deliciously rich flavor.

PICKLE YOUR EXCESS PRODUCE! Don't

let it go to waste. Cauliflower, radishes,

rainbow chard stems, carrots, asparagus,

green beans, onions…the list is endless.

Make sure to scale the liquid, depending

on how much you’re pickling and the size

of the jar.

Rough chop the dates. Add all ingredients to

food processor. Pulse until well mixed. Roll

into small balls. Makes 20 balls.

Quick Pickled

Veggies

4-6 tbsp. sugar

2 tbsp. kosher salt

2 cups hot water

2 cups vinegar (rice wine or

apple cider)

Veggies of choice (cauliflower,

radishes, carrots, green beans,

etc.), cut into 1-inch pieces

Optional ingredients to add

additional flavor: rosemary,

thyme, red pepper flakes, or

peppercorns

Dissolve sugar and salt in hot

water; add vinegar and stir. Prep

veggies and add them to a glass

jar. Pour liquid mixture into the

jar, ensuring it covers the top of

the vegetables and none float

past the surface. Place the lid on

top and allow it to cool before

refrigerating. They taste best

after about 2 days and will keep

up to 1 month in your fridge.

PREPARATION IS KEY. Keep a bowl of

salt and pepper blend on your counter

for basic seasoning needs. Instead of

grabbing the salt and pepper separately,

it’ll save you time and a step.

USE SQUIRT BOTTLES FOR YOUR OILS.

Forget messing with a lid—just grab and

squirt! I cook mostly with avocado oil

and olive oil, so those two are always on

my countertop.

BUY A GOOD CHEF'S KNIFE AND

KEEP IT SHARP. My favorite one is

the Wusthof Grand Prix (Hollow Edge

Santoku), which you can sharpen with a

stone soaked in water.

LET MACHINES DO THE WORK! Using

tools like food processors make recipes

like my homemade cranberry, pistachio,

& honey energy bites

easy peasy.

PAT THE FLESH ON FISH COMPLETELY DRY AND SEASON WITH

ONLY SALT AND PEPPER. Then get a cast iron or heavy pan very

hot with a little bit of canola or other high-temp oil and place

the fish flesh side down. Once there’s a golden-brown crust,

flip; the fish is finished once it's flaky.

WHEN ENTERTAINING, PICK A DISH THAT HAS AT LEAST ONE

DO-AHEAD COMPONENT, such as a sauce that can

hold well and is interesting like blistered pepper &

heirloom tomato sauce. It pairs well with proteins,

elevates any dish, and makes final preparations

easier to pull off and less stressful.

Blistered Pepper

& Heirloom

Tomato Sauce

1 Anaheim chili pepper, stems &

seeds removed, cut lengthwise

1 Fresno chili pepper, stems &

seeds removed, cut lengthwise

1/2 yellow bell pepper, stems &

seeds removed, cut lengthwise

1 yellow onion (approx. 2 cups),

chopped into big pieces

4 large garlic cloves, whole

3 lbs. heirloom tomatoes (mostly

red but any variety)

1/4 cup loosely packed basil

2 tbsp. unsalted butter

2 tbsp. olive oil + more to cook

Salt and black pepper

Line a sheet pan with parchment

paper. Lay peppers down, skin

side up, along with the onion and

garlic. Drizzle with olive oil, season

with salt and pepper, and broil until

the skin on the peppers is blistered or

blackened. You may need to rotate the

pan under the broiler to achieve this.

Move peppers to a bowl and cover

with plastic wrap. Wait 10 minutes and

remove the skin from their flesh.

Core the tomatoes and cut into large

pieces. In a large pot, heat olive oil, and

add the chopped tomatoes, salt, and

pepper. Cook over medium heat until

the tomatoes start to break down.

Add the peppers, onions, and garlic

into the tomatoes and cook for 10-

15 minutes. Add the mixture to a

blender. Add butter and basil. Blend to

combine and then turn speed to purée.

Pour sauce into glass jars or freezer

containers, if storing, and use with

your favorite recipe.

Where We Live

“It’s a priceless privilege living where I’m able to easily get away from the

hustle and bustle of everyday life and find solitude outside. Gazing at the

stars puts things in perspective and makes life seem so simple.”

REACH FOR

THE STARS

As if you needed

another reason

to get outside,

August marks one

of the best months

for stargazing.

Don't miss these

astronomical events.

August 1, Saturn at

Opposition

During this once-a-year event,

Saturn will be closer to Earth

and its face fully illuminated

by the sun, making it appear

about 40% larger than usual.

A medium-sized (or larger)

telescope will allow you to see

the planet’s rings and a few of

its brightest moons.

August 8, New Moon

The first phase of the lunar

calendar, new moons occur

when the sun and moon are

aligned—making the moon

invisible from Earth and

creating the darkest sky of the

month. This is the prime time

to observe star clusters and see

the Milky Way.

August 11-13, Perseids

Meteor Shower

Regarded as one of the best

meteor showers of the year,

you can witness up to 60

shooting stars per hour (that’s

one per minute!). To maximize

the number of meteors you see,

try watching after midnight but

before dawn.

August 19, Jupiter at

Opposition

During this once-a-year event,

Jupiter and the sun are in

opposite directions, meaning

the planet is closer to Earth

and appears about 70% larger

than usual. A medium-sized

telescope will allow you to see

some of the details in Jupiter's

cloud bands, while a good pair

of binoculars should allow you

to see its four largest moons

(appearing as bright dots on

either side of the planet).

August 22, Blue Moon

Since this is the third of four

full moons this season—a

rare calendar event that

only happens once every few

years—it’s known as a blue

moon (hence the term “once in

a blue moon”).
