Memphis Food & Wine Festival

The Memphis Food & Wine Festival was a magnificent evening under the stars at the Memphis Botanic Garden on October 12. The premiere event featured 40 chefs, 200 wines, and Memphis music on the Live Garden stage. Guests enjoyed the incredible foods prepared by renowned chefs including local greats Wally Jo and Jose Gutierrez, plus numerous chefs from across the globe. Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits and numerous vintners were pouring the magnificent wines in signature Memphis Food & Wine Festival Riedel wine glasses. Most importantly, funds were raised for the FedExFamilyHouse, a home away from home for out-of-town families with children receiving treatment at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. At press time, Festival accounting was not yet complete, but the projected goal is to continue a six-figure donation. Kudos and congratulations for a superb 2019 installment of the Memphis Food & Wine Festival! Photography by Frank Chin.

My Big Backyard Bash

To celebrate the 10 th anniversary of My Big Backyard, the world-class children’s garden at the Memphis Botanic Garden, a Backyard Bash was held September 21. The day kicked off with a family-fun backyard party, and that evening an adults-only backyard bash featured food, live music, Wiseacre beer, live football streaming, and a silent auction. Both parties provided the perfect “big birthday” celebration ambiance. Funds raised will help support ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the current My Big Backyard spaces, as well as the construction of future projects and educational activities and exhibits.

Mrs. Jones' Take on Pumpkin Spice: We love to spruce up plastic pumpkins with SaltwashŽ� for texture and Jolie paint & wax for gorgeous colors and finishes. The silk craft-store leaves were painted with Modern Masters Metal Effects paints, which magically react and oxidize. Here, we used copper and bronze as a finishing touch. Add guests' names or your menu items using a metallic paint pen for a terrific tablescape. 50

Intercoiffure America Canada: 2019 Fall Atelier

Sheila Wilson & Chris Appleton

Story by Lesley Harris Colvett Photography by Mark O. Ramirez

S

heila Wilson, Owner of Master Design Salon & Wellness Studio, is the President of Intercoiffure America Canada, and will serve as president for the next three years. Intercoiffure Mondial, located in Paris, is a global organization for salon owners representing 40 countries. Each country has their own membership within their region/country. America Canada is the largest. Sheila is the spokesperson representing the voice of salon owners/businesses not only within our country, but globally as well. “One of the most exciting aspects that comes with this position is to be able to network, open doors globally and to highlight the many talented people into this industry,” Sheila says. Recently, Intercoiffure America Canada hosted the 2019 Fall Atelier Connect & Communicate weekend October 12-14 in New York City at the New York Hilton Midtown. The Intercoiffure Atelier is known to the world as “The Best of the Best,” and the event was attended by 800 stylists from all over the world.As president, Sheila welcomed attendees and kicked-off the mainstage presentations from industry leaders. Some of the industry legends and educators attending were: Maurice Tidy, who was Sassoon's assistant for many years and acknowledged as the man who created the layered cut; Ann Bray, who had a salon in Birmingham, Alabama, and now is credited for the designs of the hair for the royalty in Hunger Games, Game of Thrones and is currently designing the hair for the new Eddie Murphy's Coming to America 2; Chris Appleton, who is the celebrity stylist for the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande; and Tabatha Coffey from the TV fame Tabatha’s Salon Takeover. We chatted with Sheila about the latest in hair health, styles and hair color for men and women. “Hair is the main accessory that defines our look, our feelings and our confidence. We see our hair as an extension of who we are. I think most people really do not understand the importance of a healthy scalp, and why it is imperative for healthy hair. Today, we have more hair loss in both genders and in all ages than we have ever had... This is a sign of what is happening to the hair fiber externally as well as internally. There is no drive through fix... it takes a lifestyle change and an honest evaluation of what is causing the loss or breakage. We do have systems that work to increase the hair growth and now with new technology, we can chart the progress using a hand-held microscope and advise on the facts rather than guessing. Reconditioning and proper cleansing is the first item any man or woman should have in their beauty regimen. The second is a good cut that suits their face, texture of hair and lifestyle. Hair color is the enhancement of the cut or style. MEN: We have seen in the last year the global boom of a refined or definite look in a cut for the men. The awareness of groomed facial hair. The reduction of grey and more scalp treatments in the men's market. 62

NOVEMBER 2019


WOMEN: The global trend for women is moving to shorter hair or a more defined cut if the hair is longer. She states that in the past, women wanted to be an individual, make their own statement and trying different styles as they changed their lifestyle. “Over the last 10 years that individual statement tapered off but I see a strong confidence coming back in the women's market. It is exciting to see the return of lashes, hairpieces and brows that make a statement. Not afraid of showing their own style,” Sheila says. While Sheila has a remarkable responsibility serving as president of Intercoiffure America Canada she also truly enjoys working with her clients. “Not only do we, as stylists, help make people look better, but feel better, and touch each others lives.” Hair color and scissors/razors do not work on their own, they are the tools that the professional uses to achieve the desired results. Continued education is expected in any industry, but is a must in the beauty industry. Sheila says as she travels domestically and abroad, people get excited when they hear she is from Memphis. “They know about our food, our music, St. Jude and our city's growth. If they have not been here they all want to come. I love that I can represent Memphis and my industry at the same time.”

Owen Brennan’s: NOLA Lagniappe in the Bluff City By Sandi Butler Hughes Photography by Jim Baker

O

wen Brennan’s has been an East Memphis institution for three decades. The popular eatery has anchored The Regalia at Poplar and Ridgeway since 1990. A cornerstone since the shopping mecca first opened, Owen Brennan’s was designed by a renowned restaurant architectural design firm. With upscale and perfectly appointed details, even Hollywood took notice and used it as a movie set. Leading the “OB” team of 82 employees is Jim Baker, owner, restaurateur and patriarch. Jim, along with his wife Judy and their three children Austin, Lawson, and Becky have been the foundation of the business for 30 years. The family is lovingly represented in a large New Orleans-themed mural in the exclusive private dining room at the rear of the restaurant. 4Memphis had the pleasure of spending a day in Owen Brennan’s with Jim, Becky, and the staff as we shot our fashion feature for November (see pages 54-60). We were treated as welcomed guests, and we made ourselves at home for the day in the beautiful space. We were even treated to a wonderful spread of breakfast and lunch, complete with an afternoon snack of chocolate dipped strawberries and a bottomless pot of coffee! Between eating and shooting, we asked Jim and the family a few questions about Owen Brennan’s history and their secret sauce for success. 4M: What was the inspiration for opening Owen Brennan's in Memphis? JIM: Actually, Burt Wolf (journalist and chef) had the idea, and I was one of the three investment banking firms that raised the initial money to start the business. Approximately one year later, the restaurant wasn’t being run properly and was bankrupt. I became the General Partner/Manager with a significant ownership percentage. Over time, I bought out all of my silent investors-partners. 68

NOVEMBER 2019

Now, my family and I own 100% of Owen Brennan’s. Judy, Jim’s wife of 41 years: Jim is the business- end of our relationship, and I’m the healthcare-side. But I remember Jim telling me about the opportunity and excitement having Burt Wolf come in. We both enjoyed watching Burt on TV when he would go into different restaurants around the globe and how interesting it was to see the dishes and learn about the culture. 4M: How do you carry on the New Orleans tradition in Memphis? JIM: We are always looking for new New Orleans food ideas and recipes. We have added numerous things to the menu while we have kept 70% of our original dishes. JUDY: First and foremost you can’t walk into OB without feeling like you’re stepping into New Orleans. The décor draws you in and the sounds of Lannie’s Jazz band gets your blood flowing during Sunday brunch. We share our take on New Orleans cuisine and love to celebrate the Louisiana traditions of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras. BECKY: When you walk into the restaurant, you are instantly transported to a feeling of being in the middle of the French Quarter. With high ceilings and chandeliers to the large float pieces and intricate ironwork, everywhere you look screams “New Orleans.” 4M: What are the most popular dishes? How do you give a Memphis twist to the New Orleans institution? JIM: We are always looking for new New Orleans food ideas and recipes. We have added numerous things to the menu while we have kept 70% of our original dishes. JUDY: First and foremost you can’t walk into OB without feeling like you’re stepping into New Orleans.

How do you give a Memphis twist to the New Orleans institution? JIM: Wow! If there is one description, it’s that Owen Brennan’s is all about authentic New Orleans flavor. All of the recipes are our own. If you prefer it spicy, it is on the table in several popular varieties of hot sauce. Our favorite dishes include the Pasta Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffee, Oysters Rockefeller, Eggs Hussarde, Blackened Redfish Perez, Bananas Foster, and Jackson Square Bread Pudding with Myers’s Rum Sauce. BECKY: We have never strayed from the original recipes of our traditional dishes, and each dish is still made in house from scratch. Some of our cooks have been with us for as long as 27 years, which has helped us maintain the consistency in our dishes. 4M: What is OB best known for? JIM: All of the dishes we’ve mentioned, plus our famous Sunday Jazz Brunch. We have won the #1 Best Brunch by numerous magazine and newspaper polls over our 30 years. BECKY: Sunday brunch is like a big family get-together, with Lannie and the boys playing and families singing. And then there is Shorty throwing plates and tossing omelets! Besides our Sunday brunch we have a large business lunch crowd. With our ambiance and private dining spaces, we host a variety of business, political, social & charity events. Then you can’t forget our regulars. They are our extended family. In that way we are a “Cheers” bar. Everyone has their place in the restaurant, their favorite server or bartender. They share their lives with us and are a part of ours as well. LAWSON: I believe people come back to a restaurant for one of three reasons: food, service, ambiance. I think it’s the consistent combination of all three day after day, year after year, then eventually decade after decade. At some point, food + service + ambiance give way to nostalgia. From closing business dinners, Mother’s Day brunches, to proposals and weddings, I think lots of Memphians have life events they remember here.

working with me as an invaluable Manager over both the Front and Back of the House. All of my children and my wife, Judy continue to offer priceless advice and suggestions all of the time. I do get a lot of feedback, much of which I incorporate into Owen Brennan’s. JUDY: Everyone has worked at OB at some point in time except me unless you want to count the time I came in and rolled silverware during Mother’s Day or that I used to decorate for the holidays. Becky has a long history of working in restaurants besides OB, and she has found her niche at Owen Brennan’s. She pays close attention to details to the customer experience, general oversight of the running of the organization. BECKY: My father nurtured this restaurant with the design help of my mother while my brothers and I all at some point were working in the restaurant. We were all required to work our way up and put in our dues from front to back of house. We were raised to know the value of hard work. Lawson and I were also sent to train in New Orleans at Brennan’s and learn from the staff. We spent two weeks training with Clark and Blake Brennan.Three days after we left New Orleans, Katrina hit, and the city was changed forever. All of us in the Baker family still have our hands in the business now, whether we are present every day or not. We all love Owen Brennan’s and hope to see it grow even more in the future.

For those of you that have been a part of our history and for those that are becoming a part of our future, thank you. Thank you for growing with us and helping spread love through food. – Becky Baker

4M: What do you want Memphians to enjoy most when they dine with you? JIM: We always win the best ambiance and atmosphere. Our restaurant design was created by one of the world’s most famous restaurant design firms, Morris Nathanson Design. I can tell when someone walks in the front door if they have never been there before. We have “eye candy” from the floor to the ceiling! All of the large Mardi Gras décor pieces came off of New Orleans Mardi Gras floats. AUSTIN: There are so many charitable events that we supported over the years, and I am proud of the difference we have made. Also I have enjoyed getting to know and celebrating the employees that are like family to us. Seeing our external and internal impact through the people we have served has been immensely impactful to me. 4M: What has been the Baker family involvement at OB? JIM: All of my children have worked for me. Austin, my oldest son, was a bus boy, and later has worked with me in training our staff and managers. Austin has been very successful with his human resources consulting company, HRO-Partners. Lawson worked with me as a server and a manager before graduating law school. Becky is currently

4M: What are some memorable moments over the past 30 years? JIM: For 2 ½ days, the movie “The Firm”, with Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman, filmed at Owen Brennan’s. Tom would go straight back to his trailer after a shot was filmed, but Gene always stayed around and talked with everyone. He would go to the kitchen and cook up a storm! We have hosted numerous political leaders including Senators and House members from Washington as well as a host of Tennessee politicians. Major Fortune 500 companies have hosted events with us, including Fred Smith of FedEx. We have a state-of-the-art video system in our private dining room – plus a 30’ ceiling and beautiful light streams in the windows. JUDY: What I think is most memorable are the relationships our staff have with the customers. Some people often come in on certain days when they know a waiter or bartender typically works because they always take great care of them. One of our bartenders Brian who worked for us for many years recently moved to California. Brian always took great care of his customers. He would even ask Jim and I to move when we were sitting at the bar to ensure his customers got a seat! Not many staff members would be comfortable asking their boss to move but Brian did, and we respected him for it. During his last week with us, so many of his long-time customers came in to wish him the best. To me, that says a lot about what type of customer service and longstanding relationships we have at Owen Brennan’s. AUSTIN: Personally one of my earliest memories was getting pulled out of school to see “The Firm” be filmed in the restaurant. Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman were right there in front of me, and it was surreal to see all the production that was going on, it was incredible. LAWSON: I remember throwing up in the restroom after eating way too much dinner plus a Bananas Foster on the patio for my 11th or 12th birthday! BECKY: Most of my memories come from growing up in the middle of the restaurant. I have known some of our employees and regulars for more than half of my life. They are my family. They are a part of me and who I am. We laugh, cry, learn and grow together. NOVEMBER 2019

#IN THE KITCHEN WITH

enny Kish loves to cook for her family and friends. Her kitchen is centrally located in her home and features a large island for cooking. One of her specialties to make is Baklava, a Middle-Eastern dessert made of phyllo pastry filled with chopped nuts. Jenny grew up in Beirut, Lebanon, and her husband Sarkis grew up in Damascus, Syria. They met in Montreal, Canada, and later moved to Memphis where they raised their two children - Mary Anne and Sarko. Mary Anne lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, with her husband and two children, and Sarko lives in Memphis and runs the family business Sarkis Kish Oriental Rugs. Sarkis has retired from the business but still consults and works with his son Sarko on a regular basis. Her children, grandchildren, and friends love all of her cooking, but Baklava is one of their favorites! Jenny says her mother-in-law taught her the Baklava recipe, and Jenny makes it for the holidays, her bridge playing group, family, and dinner parties. “Instead of bringing a bottle of wine to dinner parties we are invited to, I take a big tray of Baklava,” Jenny says. She and Sarkis have supported many charities over the years, including Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis, The Orpheum Theatre and its auctions, The Buckman Performing Arts Center at St. Mary’s School, The Dixon, and Opera Memphis to name a few. “In the past, I gave a dinner party at my home as an auction item because I like to help as much as I can. At a recent Boys & Girls Clubs auction, a dinner party I donated to host at my house went for $2,000,” Jenny says. We bet guests were treated to Jenny’s delicious and famous Baklava!

BAKLAVA:

2 cups pecans, finely chopped 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped 2 tablespoons sugar ½ teaspoon cinnamon Dash of clove 4 sticks of unsalted butter Phyllo dough Mix the pecans, sugar, cinnamon and clove in a small bowl. Melt 4 sticks of unsalted butter and spread over the bottom of a pan. Next, layer the phyllo dough, letting it hang over the side of the pan, then brush butter on the top layer of the phyllo (butter the phyllo as you are layering it). After several layers of phyllo dough brushed with melted butter spread the pecan mixture over the phyllo. Next, layer the phyllo and brush with melted butter. Once finished, cut into angled pieces. Pour sugar topping* over the top and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

SUGAR TOPPING:

Jenny says this is best to make a day ahead and leave out at room temperature. 1 ¼ cup sugar 1 cup water 1 stick of cinnamon 2-3 cloves Add all the ingredients to a small pot and cook over medium heat. Stir at the beginning and at first boil put in 2-3 drops of lemon (so the sugar does not harden). Let it boil for about 15 - 20 minutes, and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes. If you overcook it, you won’t be able to pour it over the Baklava. Jenny says she makes the Baklava the “morning of”, or at least lets it cool a few hours before serving or taking somewhere.

SPORTS

By Lillian McCrary

n October 3rd Memphis definitely went mad at MEMPHIS MADNESS! The FedEx forum hosted a huge kickoff for the 2019-2020 Tiger’s basketball season. The sold-out event started with the reveal of this year’s court and an amazing performance from the Memphis Pom Squad and Cheer Team. Up next was the introduction of the men and women's rosters, coaches, and staff. The crowd was especially excited to see James Wiseman, former number one high school player in the country. It was also exciting to see Men's head coach Penny Hardaway, a tiger alum! After everyone was announced it was time for some friendly competition. At this point, Future, Lil Baby, and Moneybagg Yo came to pump up the crowd! During the dunk contest, Damion Baugh made an impressive jump over his competition, James Wiseman, for the win! After a few more games and friendly competitions, rappers, Key Glock and Young Dolph, came out to wrap up the night! Now, the Tigers prepare to take on the CBU Buccaneers on October 24th to kick off the season. Go Tigers!

GIRLS ON THE RUN By Elizabeth Moody Photography by Stephanie Ramirez

T

o many young girls, running can seem difficult or intimidating due to the misconception of running being a stereotypical “male sport.” However, running is a lifelong skill that some girls can learn to love if given the chance. Girls on the Run is a non-profit program committed to mentoring girls through running. It has many programs across the United States including multiple groups in Memphis. Throughout the greater Memphis area, there are eight program sites with runners ranging from third to eighth grade with various practice times and locations. Although this ten-week program is designed around running, coaches incorporate lessons from self-confidence to healthy lifestyles to build the girls’ success and take-aways from the program. The practices consist of stretching, running, games, and lessons taught by female adults and teenagers. The main purpose is to empower girls by teaching them that their future has endless possibilities despite what they might see as a hurdle. Once or twice a week, girls from different backgrounds and areas train and form relationships with other girls and their coaches, creating a large community through running. I have been volunteering this fall, and I love seeing the girls improve in their running and self-confidence. This community of girls supporting girls is empowering. The season for the Memphis teams concludes with a 5k race at Shelby Farms on Saturday, November 9. This will be a chance for the girls to showcase and celebrate all they have accomplished in the season. Crossing the finish line will show them that they can achieve their own goals. It is very important to have volunteers to come support these hard-working girls, so if you are free, please come out for a fun, encouraging Saturday morning!

ART

FEATURED ARTIST: ALEXIS PELLICCIOTTI FROM CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL By Laila Travillion

A

lexis Pellicciotti is a senior and talented art student at Central High School. For as long as she can remember, art has been a huge part of her life. With two parents in creative careers, one an interior designer, and the other an architect, Pellicciotti has always found inspiration and encouragement from her family. At a young age, Pellicciotti was introduced to her mother’s wide variety of art supplies, and soon gravitated towards pencils (both graphite and colored) as her favorite medium stating, “Pencils have always felt the most natural for me and give me the most control over the lines I create.” Moreover, she believes she has her art teachers and AP Studio Art program to thank for helping her develop as an artist. “When I was younger, I would primarily doodle all over my assignments in school. However, being in high school art classes, especially the AP program, has really made me focus more on coming up with original compositions and techniques,” says Pellicciotti. In the future, she hopes to follow in her parent’s footsteps with a career that grants her creative freedom and fun opportunities. As an artist herself, she believes art can obtain something “magical to society” in its “ability to visually express emotion and convey messages that can create conversations within communities.”
