Kerrisdale A Guide to Local Shopping & Fun Publisher’s Note There’s nothing like a Kerrisdale summer when the sun is shining, the air is warm and the kids are out of school. It is time to have fun in our backyard! You might recognize our beautiful cover model Reiko Mackenzie, who is currently starring in the reality show The Real Housewives of Vancouver. We share the inside story about this devoted mother of two, who is a supporter of all things Kerrisdale, and is a strong believer in buying and growing food locally. She is delightful and I admit that I am Team Reiko! Since starting this magazine in February, I continually hear wonderful things about Moore’s Bakery. It goes without saying that the baked goods are delicious, however the real ‘treat’ was learning about the incredible family behind this landmark business. Summer is a time for backyard barbecues – pick up some fresh meat from Shaughnessy Selected Fine Meats, fresh baked buns and dessert from Moore’s Bakery. West Coast Liquor Company has a good selection of fine wine, craft beer and premium spirits. To really wow your guests, order a custom plate from Benton Brothers Fine Cheese, or specialty chocolates from Gem Fine Chocolates. Tune up your bike at West Point Cycles, pack a picnic and head to one of Kerrisdale’s many beautiful parks. Elm Park offers many recreational opportunities, including lawn bowling, tennis, and field sports. Fraser River Park is one of the most tranquil and inspiring spots in the area with large rolling lawns perfect for picnicking or flying a kite, and offers beautiful views of the Fraser River. With it’s quiet and shaded plaza, small

lawn and children’s playground, Kerrisdale Centennial Park is a nice escape, while being conveniently located next to the Kerrisdale Community Centre. Malkin Park is a largely forested area that shelters a small field and playground. How about a challenging game of golf on the fairways and greens of McCleery Golf Course? Located on the banks of the Fraser River adjacent to Vancouver’s only remaining farmland, this golf course is a treasure within the City of Vancouver. The Kerrisdale Business Association brings back its annual Concerts Under the Clock on Saturday afternoons. In this issue we shine the spotlight on one of the community’s perennial favourites bands, Faith & Desire, who inspire people of all ages to dance and sing along to hits from the early days of rock ‘n’ roll through to the present day. I met Julia Smith a couple years ago in her backyard which is home to her chickens and urban garden. I was impressed by her passion and commitment to organic and sustainable growing. This year she will be at the Kerrisdale Farmers Market. I was pleased when she agreed to write an article for us. Plan a Saturday to stroll around the market and shop for farm produce, prepared foods and crafts, and remember to say hello to Julia if you see her. Kerrisdale has plenty of options to keep your kids busy this summer with swimming lessons at Kerrisdale Pool, the summer book club at Kerrisdale Library, classes at Oxford Learning, fun art classes at 4Cats Arts Studio, or an afternoon at Play Palace. However you plan to spend your summer, I hope you find time for the simple pleasures right in our own backyard. Carolynne Palla, PALLA MEDIA

Summer Camps At Oxford Learning

Research from Johns Hopkins Institute for Summer Learning shows that kids can lose up to 40% of their learning momentum over the summer months.

Would you turn off your brain for 8 weeks?

NO WAY!

It can take up to two months for students to get their learning momentum going when school starts in the fall. This can cause learning gaps. Summer is the perfect time to catch up in trouble areas, to get ahead, or to make those necessary connections.

COVER STORY: REIKO MACKENZIE A REAL HOUSEWIFE OF VANCOUVER by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

hair and makeup by Faye Smith in gymnastics, soccer and martial arts. Reiko enjoys baking and gardening with her daughters and feels a real bond when they share these times together. They have a vegetable garden which they all tend and eat everything they grow. Preparing meals for her family brings Reiko joy and when her children join in she says it fills the food with even more love. She describes her mother as athletic and a fashion inspiration. Her mother has always been there for her, and they have great fun together. Her father is her academic mentor. He encouraged Reiko to achieve top grades at school, and she tells us that for the most part, she succeeded.

In a short time Reiko Mackenzie has gathered a following, as fans tune in to view the television show The Real Housewives of Vancouver. Reiko is a Japanese-Canadian bombshell who spends her spare time studying mixed martial arts and collecting exotic sports cars. Kerrisdale Insider was curious to learn a little more about this Vancouver housewife beyond her television persona. Reiko was born in North Burnaby. Her mother Keiko lives with Reiko and her family. Reiko’s father lives up the street from her, and has two children from his second marriage. She has a brother who lives in Burnaby with his family. Reiko and her husband Sun married in May 2002. Their oldest daughter was born nine months later. Alizée, now 9-years-old, and her 3-year-old sister Ashanti are interested

June 22 - August 17, 2012

Kerrisdale Insider was interested to know what this Vancouver celebrity thinks of Kerrisdale Village. She enjoys the Village’s laid back atmosphere which is removed from downtown’s hustle and bustle. Reiko and her family enjoy attending Kerrisdale Days. She is a fan of Starbucks. She enjoys Shota Sushi & Grill and loves Minerva’s souvlaki. She is fond of Adonia Tea House and is a fan of Cobs ham and cheese croissants, but winks when she says she does not indulge too often. Benton Brothers Fine Cheese accompanies her wine nights at home. White Spot is always a popular pick for her family. Her husband enjoys Purdy’s Chocolates. They buy raw dog food for their 6 month old Newfoundland dog from True Carnivores. For the ladies who want to know Reiko’s beauty hot spots, she gets blow-dries at Flhair Studios, and gets her nails done at Bella Nails & Esthethics Salon. She likes shopping at Buchan’s Stationery, Hobbs Florist, Hills of Kerrisdale and Cowboys & Angels Toy Store. When downtown she is approached far more frequently by people than when she is in Kerrisdale. Reiko confesses that she loves the camera and if people would like a photo, she encourages them to ask. She finds it

• www.KerrisdaleInsider.com

more difficult when she is out with her family and is pulled away for photos. Being in the limelight, Reiko has her share of stories. Recently, a young man on the verge of crying approached her as she was getting into her car. He said he felt bad because he had been following her while she was shopping, and then he kindly asked her for a photo. When she agreed he jumped up and down and “was sweet as pie”. Reiko was a little shocked because she didn't realize the affect she had on certain people.

Reiko stays fit by training in martial arts four days a week which includes Muay Thai boxing, Hapkido, samurai sword and offsets these activities with road biking. What are Reiko’s hidden talents? She enjoys singing, acting and performing. She attended film school and has a passion for writing, producing and directing films. Her future plan includes launching her own production company; however she can not divulge more information yet. People may not know that Reiko is deeply spiritual and enjoys meditation. She believes in reincarnation. While in high school she studied mechanics for two years and earned a math scholarship and drama award. Reiko holds a degree in Philosophy from UBC. She ardently believes in supporting local organic farms. How does one become a Real Housewife of Vancouver? Reiko was approached by the production company. It was a closed casting call, meaning they went out seeking the women. Reiko feels that she is portrayed accurately on the program and has no regrets. ...con’t

How has new found celebrity affected her family? Her family participated frequently in the filming therefore she was able to be with them often. The production crew spent a great deal of time at her house, even very early in the morning, although on the show, it may not appear that way. She finds new demands on her time and wishes that there was more of her to go around, especially as she places great importance on her role as a mother and a wife. She believes in supporting local businesses and non-profit organizations, and if her notoriety can lend a hand she is all for it, however, like many of us, her time is stretched; but that does not stop her from trying. We look forward to seeing what lies ahead for this Real Housewife of Vancouver who can “enter a room and turn heads in her sky-high heels, but in the ring, she’ll take you out.” www.officialreiko.tumblr.com www.slice.ca/shows/realhousewivesvancouver

MOORE’S BAKERY by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

There are few things more comforting than the smell of fresh baked goods. Writer Thomas Wolfe said, “You can’t go home again”, yet walking through the door of Moore’s Bakery, it feels like stepping through a portal back in time. I spent some of my childhood years in Kerrisdale and it feels grounding to know that this familiar business still remains. At Moore’s Bakery, the shelves are lined with a variety of breads which catch your attention, while delectable and tempting sweet treats pull your eyes downward to peek inside the glass display cases, where the goodies almost seem to cry out “take me home for your afternoon tea.” If you have the willpower to walk out of Moore’s Bakery empty handed you are a strong person indeed. The traditional pastries, cookies, baked goods, including a good selection of gluten-free baking, and a variety of breads are made from scratch daily in a gigantic industrial oven. Custom decorated cakes and cookies are available by request. Behind the scenes in the large kitchen, owner Archie Kroondyk puts in some incredibly long days to ensure that the baking is done. In fact, he is up at 3:30 a.m. and his day does not finish until 6 p.m.

Archie Kroondyk is a charming gentleman with a warm smile. He told me that he loves his work and baking has been his life long profession. When he was 15-years-old he got his start as a helper at a bakery in his native Holland. He moved to Nova Scotia with his family when he was 17-years-old, and in 1969 he headed west to explore the west coast. He worked at Woodward’s Bakery and then relocated briefly with his wife Lorelei to her homeland, New Zealand. The Kroondyks have lived in Kerrisdale since 1974. Archie Kroondyk is very fit and enjoys cycling to work, his daughter Sarah Kroondyk jokes that he is a true Dutchman as Holland is known for its large number of cyclists. Sarah Kroondyk has worked in the bakery for as long as she can remember, although she did take a break to pursue a business degree. She has been working at Moore’s fulltime since 1994. A mother of two children, she manages to put in full days at the bakery with the assistance of her mother, who devotedly shuttles her grandchildren back and forth to school and activities. Their son Rob Kroondyk works alongside his father as a baker. Moore’s Bakery has a long and rich history. The original owners, the Moore family, opened

June 22 - August 17, 2012

the bakery in the early 1930s and owned it until 1962. Another baker owned it for the next eight years, and in 1973 the Kroondyk family purchased the business. In 1975 the bakery moved from its original location on W 41st to its present site. The building was formerly the home of the Kerrisdale Theatre in the 1920s. After that it became a post office, and then was renovated to house Moore’s Bakery. Their staff are exceptionally loyal, so much so that they have even had three generations work for them. High school and university students keep the counter brimming with youthful enthusiastic service. Of the twelve staff, five bake full-time including Archie, Sarah and Rob Kroondyk. ...con’t

Customer service is of utmost importance at Moore’s Bakery. They pride themselves on knowing at least fifty percent of their customers by name, and even know their orders. Young families and seniors will often come in on a daily basis. An example is Rosemary Hugh and her friends who come in each day for lunch and to purchase baked goods. The Kroondyks modestly credit both their staff and customers for the bakery’s success. Customers find the familiarity of the bakery comforting, and have come to count on their favourite goodies always being there. For this reason you will find some of the treats from the 1970s still being made, after all, when you have a reputation for the best oatmeal cookies in town, why mess with tradition? If you are not a regular customer, you may not be aware that Moore’s Bakery has a small dining area as they also sell lunch, with two choices of soup daily and made to order fresh sandwiches.

the church. They support community events through the donation of baked goods and gift certificates. They also make the lollapalooza of sheet cakes for Kerrisdale Business Association’s celebration of the Village’s birthday in August. Over 80 years of serving Kerrisdale baked goods, and going strong, Moore’s Bakery is a sweet success which has kept many generations happy as they pause in front of the display case, anticipating what they will take home today!

KERRISDALE FARMERS MARKET by Jenn Chic & Julia Smith

photos submitted

Market Co-ordinator: Jenn Chic It was just last year that the Kerrisdale Farmers Market was a pilot program and now we’re so happy to be getting ready for our first full season. Every Saturday, from July 7th until October 6th, the market pops up from 10 am until 2pm, along East Boulevard beside Point Grey Secondary School, within walking distance of most of Kerrisdale. If you happen to drive there is plenty of parking along West Boulevard just beside the market site. We do our best every week to provide you with a dynamic and fun market capable of satisfying most grocery lists. World In A Garden, Farmers on 57th, Yummy Yards and Urban Digs will be selling their beautiful produce grown in and around the Kerrisdale neighbourhood. Come and meet the innovative urban farmers who are responsible for this grass-roots food revolution. There are plenty of other farmers to get to know at the market from the Fraser Valley to

22

June 22 - August 17, 2012

Pemberton and up the Sunshine Coast. Even though they may not be organically-certified they may be growing without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Just ask. They are also great cooks, and love to share recipes that highlight their products. Above and beyond the produce, talented buskers are on hand to offer a little ambience. Enjoy lunch from one of Vancouver’s famous food trucks or take a wood-fired pizza home for a backyard picnic. Load the kids up in the wagon, put the leash on the dog, grab the shopping bags and come and join us. Visit our website or join our mailing list to find out more about the Corn Festival in August, monthly raffle days and member appreciation events. Want to volunteer? Please send me an email (jennchic@eatlocal.org). Thank you, Kerrisdale, for welcoming us into your community. It’s my pleasure to introduce Julia Smith, one of the farmers behind Urban Digs…

• www.KerrisdaleInsider.com

Vendor Profile: Julia Smith - Urban Digs Farm Urban Digs is growing right here in the neighbourhood so we're very excited to be joining the Kerrisdale Farmers Market this year. One of the biggest challenges small-scale growers face is finding time to both grow AND sell our crops. Often, urban farms like ours are “one-farmer” operations so spending a day at the market can mean that no one is farming! Having a consistent volume of produce throughout the season is another challenge for small farms that can make going to market difficult. In order to address these issues, we have joined forces with five other local farms to form a new urban farmers coop, “Metro Vancouver City Farms.” At our stall, you’ll find a wide selection of fruits and vegetables which have been grown using organic and sustainable methods less than 10 miles away from the market. Emi Do, of Yummy Yards is our market manager and it is her job to coordinate all six farms to ensure that we always have a good selection of produce to bring to market in the right quantities and of the highest quality. Emi will be manning the stall every week and the rest of us will take turns assisting her so you’ll get to meet all of us throughout the summer. We all look forward to a bountiful season and are grateful for the opportunity to share our

June 22 - August 17, 2012

harvests with our community at the Kerrisdale Farmers Market. Sign up for our weekly newsletter on our website to learn what we’ll have at the market from week to week!

Faith & Desire by Sarah Gordon

photo submitted

Faith & Desire is a band that you are likely familiar with if you attend Kerrisdale Business Association community events. This foursome is made up from previous members of Trooper, Strange Advance, The Northern Pikes and Rymes With Orange. Comprised of Ian Cameron (electric guitar, violin & vocals), Gary Gillespie (lead vocals & acoustic guitar), Tim Hewitt (bass & vocals), and Doug Lechinsky (drums & vocals), this current line up of musicians have been together since 2001. How did the band’s name originate? It was a couple of words which they felt worked well together and reflects what is required of a musician. You need to have “Faith” in what you do and the “Desire” to follow your dream. In 1990 Gary Gillespie, who is Faith & Desire’s front man, began looking for a new vehicle for his vocal talents. Prior to Faith & Desire, his singing career had taken him on cross Canada tours with his band Broken Toys, which had the honour of winning a spot in the finals of CBC Television's Battle of the Bands. Gillespie and Ian Cameron were introduced to each other by a recording engineer. The pair struck up a relationship which has seen them write, record and perform together. Not wanting

24

June 22 - August 17, 2012

to limit themselves or their opportunities to perform, they decided that Faith & Desire would be both an original band and perform cover songs. Described as a “vocal chameleon with an amiable nature and quick wit”, Gillespie has an ability to work the crowd, getting them on their feet and singing along. Faith & Desire promise that their music will “make a party happen.” Their repertoire ranges from Buddy Holly through to the Black Eyed Peas. You can expect to “…not know what to expect…” at their gigs. Cameron is a guitarist and classically trained violinist who plays numerous traditional fiddle styles. He contributes to the band’s unique sound through the substitution of violin where keyboard would normally be played. Tim Hewitt joined the group in 1998. He previously belonged to the bands Rymes With Orange and Trooper. Hewitt has shared the stage with bands such as Loverboy, Bachman Turner Overdrive, and Three Dog Night. Having recorded for various Canadian and European bands, he brought a wealth of experience to the project. His vocal abilities, instrumental talent and stage presence make him a valued band member.

As a member of The Northern Pikes, Doug Lechinsky toured extensively through Canada, Asia and the Middle East. As the newest band member, Lechinsky provides the heartbeat for Faith & Desire’s live shows with his energetic drumming, vocals, and electronic percussion. Faith & Desire are available to play at company openings, movie wrap parties, high end corporate events, parties at private homes and weddings. They are happy to do whatever it takes to customize your event. Their extensive song list and vast experience ensures that they can adapt to any demographic and venue. They say “performing at weddings these days isn’t what people might imagine. Good food and happy people make for a great gig.” They perform at approximately twenty weddings a year, and they enjoy every one, as do their clients. Three of the band members have young children and enjoy their time at home, therefore they currently do very little touring. Their children enjoy coming to Kerrisdale events where they dance along as their dads perform on stage. All four band members have their fingers in many musical pies; hence these projects make it difficult to schedule time on the road. They feel fortunate that they have enough work to provide stable home lives. The entire band works in the music industry. Gillespie is a music teacher, and has a “school of rock” which teaches groups of kids

June 22 - August 17, 2012

how to work together and make music. The other three band members run small studios. Hewitt has produced and mixed bands as diverse as Prism and Genetic Control, while being the Music Director / Producer for a web series (Mumu Ci) coupled with his busy solo career. Cameron plays on tracks for producers worldwide via his efiddler.com website and is a fixture in Whistler where he is part of the fiddle and guitar duo Ruckus Deluxe. Faith & Desire have released two cds internationally; they have a long credit list of diverse performances which includes everything from Disney World Florida's Main Stage to opening for Richard Marx in Hawaii and they musically backed up Jim Belushi. Add to this list hundreds of events for law firms, conventions, business associations, fundraisers and sporting events and it is clear that they have accomplished what they set out to do through hard work, along with some Faith & Desire. www.faithanddesire.com
