Art league hosting Tharsing retrospective Kentucky Join the Lexington Art League for the “Robert Tharsing, A Retrospective,” curated by Lina Tharsing. Robert Tharsing (1943–2015) created hundreds of paintings and sculptures over his lifetime, not to mention thousands of other art objects, as small as jewelry and as large as a house in Nova Scotia. This retrospective is a survey of
Tharsing’s art career, though the legacy of Tharsing’s work extends beyond the scope of his gallery exhibitions, private collections, and catalogs. A 300-page, color catalogue has been published in partnership with Institute 193 to commemorate this exhibition with generous underwriting support in honor of Ann Tower by an anonymous friend. “My father was a compulsive
maker. His peers said they admired his dedication, but for him, it wasn’t work ethic as much as drive—he was driven to make, almost as though he was possessed by an energy outside of himself,” Lina Tharsing said in the forward of the book. The exhibition at the Lexington Art League began in April. There will be a closing reception May 26 from 6 until 9 p.m.

AND THE WINNER IS ... Kentucky native Ronni Lundy sweeps the James Beard Awards
Kentucky native and food writer Ronni Lundy has received the top James Beard Foundation award for Book of the Year. Lundy also received a James Beard Award in the American Cooking category. In the debut issue of her online food magazine, The Zenchilada, Lundy wrote of New England food writer, John Thorne, “Some might call him a food philosopher; I would call him a true ruminant, turning over a recipe or a story until his taste, his instinct leads him to the place beyond ingredient and information, the place where the fundamental can be found.” The same could be said of Lundy. As her agent puts it, “She’s been called a ‘rockstar of a scribe’ and ‘food goddess’ but, really, Ronni Lundy is just a Kentucky girl who likes to wander with a fork in one hand and a pen in the other.” Victuals is the book she says she’s been writing since she was “probably about three.”
he James Beard Awards include categories
like outstanding restaurant and best chef in 10 different regions, best new restaurants, rising star chefs, pastry chefs and bakers. The chef and restaurant awards were given out in Chicago May 1. Victuals: An Appalachian Journey, with Recipes was busy making the list of 2016’s best cookbooks before it was even released (Clarkson Potter, August 2016). In the Best Of 2016 lineup that included Ina Garten, Tasting Table wrote, “Appalachian food is about to experience its heyday, and with Lundy’s lush stories about the region’s culinary narrative, you’ll come to crave the corn, braising greens and shuck beans that come with it. The desserts are particularly alluring, like gingerbread that uses black walnuts and the ‘sorghum sea foam’ frosting on top of chocolate-blackberry jam layer cake.”
6 aceweekly.com May 2017
As Jane Black pointed out in the Washington Post’s rave review of Lundy’s latest, “Today, I’ve rarely seen real green beans outside of Appalachia. It’s the last place in the country where people demand them.” She adds, “to call it a cookbook seems almost unfair.” Lundy’s books (Sorghum’s Savor; Butter Beans to Blackberries; The Festive Table; and Shuck Beans, Stack Cakes and Honest Fried Chicken) are not so much cookbooks as they are anthropology, and Victuals is no exception. Lundy says, “I would have to own that while I love to cook, recipe is not my primary interest in writing about food. I am profoundly grateful to those for whom it is and for their work, which informs mine, and I try to live up to good practice and honor great cooking when it comes to writing recipes, but I am as interested as much in why we are doing what we’re doing when we stand at the stove as the how. And that interest is personal, political, sociological and extremely historical. The great thing in writing about food (and the secret subtext hidden in many recipes) is its revelation of the voices of people who traditionally have not been consulted when history is told—even their own history. Recipe and cookbooks are where we hear what women’s lives were actually like in different eras, and what constituted daily life for the family. If you want to look at it in those terms, in food we learn the experiences of the humble, the poor and the outcast as well as those who have it made. Food is an easy door into strange cultures and stories. Plus you get to eat while you’re doing all that research.”
ookbook author Kendra Bailey Morris
writes, “Ronni Lundy’s Victuals is a beautiful testament to Appalachian food and culture. If you want to learn more about this region, especially from a culinary, historical, social context,
this is your read. Oh, and recipes—pepperoni rolls, chili dawgs, fried pies, pea salad, fried chicken and white gravy. Almost heaven, indeed!” Of the “chili dawgs,” Eastern Kentucky natives need not fear that their beloved chili buns have been neglected. Lundy points out that the book includes “a big full color photo of Chili Bun with upstart Slaw Dogs on p. 99 and a lovingly crafted recipe for Chili Bun Chili along with tips for picking the right bun. PLUS my version of what should be the city seal of Corbin, rendered by brilliant tattoo artist Ash Swain, on the front end pages. Three pool cues crossed representing Nevels, The Dixie, and The Fad.” Last fall’s book tour took her to Kentucky haunts like 610 Magnolia in Louisville and Morris Book Shop, before it closed. Now she’s taking a few victory laps, with multiple signings and appearances.
From corn bread to James Beard
A native of Corbin, Kentucky, Ronni Lundy grew up in Louisville, and is the author of Sorghum’s Savor; Butter Beans to Blackberries; The Festive Table; and Shuck Beans, Stack Cakes and Honest Fried Chicken. Her landmark Esquire essay, The Tao of Cornbread, began with the line, “If God had meant for cornbread to have sugar in it, he’d have called it cake.”
Lundy attended the University of Kentucky during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, “three sophomore years,” as she puts it, one of the school’s more creatively fertile periods. Lundy wrote about both music and food for the Courier Journal after she returned to Kentucky from New Mexico, but was far from a typical restaurant critic, acknowledging, “I was a little unusual in that I actually worked in restaurants for 12 years, front and some back of the house, before I started writing. I think that gave me a knowledge of how things worked, a little more compassion when they went wrong and more genuine excitement when someone nailed it. I still take that with me to restaurants and
I’m still pretty aware of what is going on around me/under the surface. I am less interested in being entertained by food these days than a critic can be, hallelujah. I’m more interested in being nourished by something real on the plate and something genuine in the people and experience. One thing that hasn’t changed is that I have little patience with disinterested service and none with haughty - which is sadly too much the norm.” She has served as a music and food critic at Louisville’s Courier Journal; editor of Louisville Magazine; and editor of Cornbread Nation 3: Foods of the Mountain South. She has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Foodways Alliance.
High Praise for Victuals
By RL REEVES JR On January 2nd of this year we penned “2016 Cookbook Of The Year Award Goes To ‘Victuals’ By Ronni Lundy. The James Beard people took our lead and ran with it, and Ms Lundy’s ‘Victuals’ won first place in the ‘American Cooking’ book category. Congratulations to Ms. Lundy. Now go out there and eat a chili bun to help the Corbin native celebrate. Here’s what we said in January: We get dozens of cookbooks shipped to us in the mail for review here. It’s part of the job. We rifle through all of them, and if we’re lucky, we get one good recipe out of each work. But once or twice a year we get a cookbook that has dozens of good recipes, and if we’re really lucky, the tales that go along with the formulae are just as compelling. Enter Ronni Lundy. In 2016, the Kentucky native published (Clarkson Potter) ‘Victuals’ which has quickly become one of our most prized possessions. Over the course of some 300 pages, Lundy speaks eloquently on her life as a writer and adventurer with deep Appalachian roots.
But we’re mainly in it for the recipes. While we love a good tale or backstory, the reason we routinely hit flea markets, book stores, and garage sales is to add to our absurdly big recipe collection. Without good recipes, a cookbook is a naked fraud. We hit the ground running for our range when we saw that Lundy had included Colcannon in her repertoire. We know this dish as stamppot but the gist is the same: creamy, rich potatoes are enlivened with fresh, sauteed greens. We’ve crisscrossed Amsterdam for 20+ years looking for the best version of stamppot, and this recipe is a fine take. We have a big sack of ‘leather britches’ or dried, shuck beans sitting on our kitchen table right now. They were a final gift from Mom before she left this firmament last October. Lundy’s recipe is easy once the hard work of drying the beans is done. Back home in Knox County, we routinely ate our body weight in this classic mountain dish. You couldn’t hire us to eat pickled baloney when we were kids. Fried
baloney or no baloney was our cri du coeur. Anything else would have just been so much phonus balonus. But as adults our tastebuds have tempered somewhat. We haven’t tackled Lundy’s Pickled Baloney with Peppers recipe just yet but we are casting an eye toward doing so sometime this year. Perfect fried chicken is every selfrespecting Kentuckian’s birthright. More chicken is fried up each year in the state of Kentucky than all other southern states combined. Kentucky produces 1.6 billion pounds of broiler chickens each year which lands us one notch below Texas (which is nearly 7 times larger in landmass). We laud Ms Lundy for contributing her fried chicken recipe to this volume, and it’s a good one. We’ve never tried ‘lid-on’ fried chicken so we’re looking forward to learning a new technique in 2017. To be great, a cookbook has to be more than just a compendium of good recipes. It has to have stories woven into the receipts. And this is truly where Lundy shines. While her formulae are sound
it’s her narrative tales that drive the book. While reading ‘Victuals’ it’s as though Miss Ronni is sitting on the other end of the couch with a stiff drink chatting excitedly about bootleggers, corn growers, chili buns, and tattooed ruffians who have most likely taken up the cooking trade to stay out of the pen. Once we picked this book up, we weren’t able to put it down til suppertime, and starvation finally wrenched us off the sofa. We expect another avalanche of cookbooks to arrive this year, but it will take one hell of an author to knock Ronni Lundy off her perch as queen.

Get ramped up Spring treasures won’t be around long
amps are the fleeting darlings of the early spring farmers’ market. With a very short three to four week growing season, they’re usually the first thing to arrive at the market and the first to go. Blink and they’re gone. Members of the allium genus, ramps are also referred to as wild onions, wild leeks, or wild garlic. With feathery leafy tops and long purplish stems, they have a pronounced garlic aroma with a strong onion flavor, making them interchangeable with both garlic and onions in most recipes. If you run across ramps at the market, catch them while you can. I got lucky. Red River Farm had buckets of gorgeous ramps at the Lexington Farmers’ Market. Even with their beautiful leafy tops fluttering in the morning breeze, most of the people in line were buying eggs and bacon. I filled my bag with ramps. I toyed with the notion of tossing the ramps over burning coals to char before serving them on newspaper like Spanish colcotes (early spring green onions) with a ruddy Romesco sauce. In the end, I went with a very simple spring soup. Chilled Ramp Soup with Blackened Sea Scallops. Typically, ramps are a bear to clean. They’re usually covered in crud and
take time to prep. Because they stored them in buckets of water to keep them fresh, the ramps from Red River Farm were almost pre-prepped and ready to go. I simply snipped the roots from the bulbs and gave them a quick rinse. After slicing the greens from the stems, I set them aside before roughly chopping the stems and bulbs. After heating a skillet over a medium high flame, I sauteed the ramp stems in a combination of olive oil and butter.
When they started to caramelize, I deglazed the pan with 1/2 white wine, let it reduce by half, and added 2 cups chicken stock. I brought the stock to a boil, reduced the heat, and added 2 peeled and chopped Elmwood Stock Farm new potatoes. While the potatoes simmered away in the ramp stock, I blanched the ramp greens along with a handful of fresh spinach (in heavily salted water) for exactly 45 seconds before plunging them into a salted icewater bath. When the potatoes were tender, I scooped them into a blender along with the cooked ramps, stock, and drained greens. After adding 1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano cheese, a splash of fresh lemon juice, salt, and white pepper, I blitzed the soup into a verdant puree before sliding it into the
refrigerator to chill. I wanted the scallops to have bite. To counter and play off of the delicate spring ramps. I slid a small cast iron skillet over a blazing hot flame. When it started to smoke, I added a whisper of oil to the pan, dredged the dried scallops in cajun seasonings, blackened them on each side for 90 seconds, scooped them out of the smoky mess, and set them aside. I ladled the chilled ramp soup into shallow bowls and nestled the blackened scallops into the center of each bowl before topping them with slivers of mango, red bell pepper, and shallots. After scattering Garey Farms micro mizzuna and arugula over the scallops, I finished with a few drops extra virgin olive oil. Simple. Bright. Light. Fabulous.

Free Will Astrology
By Rob Brezsny
ARIES (March 21–April 19): I have misgivings when I witness bears riding bicycles or tigers dancing on their hind legs or Aries people wielding diplomatic phrases and making careful compromises at committee meetings. Take advantage of opportunities to make deals and forge winwin situations. But also keep a part of your fiery heart untamed. Don’t let people think they’ve got you all figured out. TAURUS (April 20–May 20): “One of the advantages of being disorderly,” said author A.A. Milne, “is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.” I must suggest that you consider experimenting with jaunty, rambunctious behavior in the coming days, even if it generates some disorder. The potential reward? Exciting discoveries, of course. GEMINI (May 21–June 20): According to my reading of the astrological omens, it’s time for you to take a break from the magic you have been weaving since your birthday in 2016. That’s why I’m suggesting that you go on a brief sabbatical. The hard work you’ve done should be balanced by an extended regimen of relaxed playtime. CANCER (June 21–July 22): Apparently, a lot of kids in the UK don’t like to eat vegetables. In response, food researchers in that country marketed a variety of exotic variations designed to appeal to their palate. Be imaginative as you expand the range of what your colleagues and clientele have to choose from. LEO (July 23–Aug 22): Many of us never succeed in becoming ourselves. Luckily for you, Leo, in the coming weeks and months you will have an unprecedented chance to become more of who you really are. To expedite the process, work on dissolving any attraction you might have to acting like someone other than yourself. VIRGO (Aug 23–Sept 22): On numerous occasions, French acrobat Charles Blondin walked across a tightrope that spanned the gorge near Niagara Falls. His cable was three and a quarter inches in diameter, 1,100 feet long, and 160 feet above the Niagara River. Once he made the entire crossing by doing backflips and somersaults. Now would be an excellent time for you to carry out your personal equivalent of his feats, Virgo. What daring actions have you never tried before even though you’ve been sufficiently trained or educated to perform them well? LIBRA (Sept 23–Oct 22): Ready for some subterranean journeys? They may not involve literal explorations of deep caverns and ancient tunnels and underground streams. But then again, you might. At the very least, you will encounter metaphorical versions of some of the above.
What mysteries would you love to solve? What secrets would be fun to uncover? What shadows would you be excited to illuminate?
SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): Why would you guzzle mind-clouding moonshine when you will eventually get a chance to sip a heart-reviving tonic? Why spoil your appetite by loading up on non-nutritious hors d’oeuvres when a healthy feast will be available sooner than you imagine? I advise you to suppress your compulsion for immediate gratification. It may seem impossible for you to summon such heroic patience, but I know you can. And in the long run, you’ll be happy if you do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): “You’ll always be my favorite what-if.” Many years ago, I heard that phrase whispered in my ear. It came from the mouth of a wonderful-but-impossible woman. It allowed us to move on with our lives and pursue other dreams that were more realistic and productive. I invite you to consider triggering a liberation like that sometime soon.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): I’d love to see you increase the number of people, places, and experiences you love, as well as the wise intensity with which you love them. From an astrological perspective, now is an excellent time to upgrade your appreciation and adoration for the whole world and everything in it. To get you in the mood, I’ll call your attention to some unfamiliar forms of ardor you may want to pursue: eraunophilia, an attraction to thunder and lightning; cymophilia, a fascination with waves and waviness; chorophilia, a passion for dancing; asymmetrophilia, a zeal for asymmetrical things; sapiophilia, an erotic enchantment with intelligence.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): You could build a sacred crazy altar in your bedroom where you will conduct rituals of playful liberation. Or how about this? Acquire a kit that enables you to create spontaneous poetry on your refrigerator door using tiny magnets with evocative words written on them. Can you think of other ideas to revitalize your home environment? It’s high time you did so. PISCES (Feb 19–March 20): Texas has the third-highest rate of teenage pregnancies. Uncoincidentally, sex education in Texas is steeped in ignorance. In the coming weeks, Pisces, you can’t afford to be as deprived of the truth as those kids. Even more than usual, you need accurate information that’s tailored to your precise needs, not fake news or ideological delusions or selfserving propaganda. Make sure you gather insight and wisdom from the very best sources. That’s how you’ll avoid behavior that’s irrelevant to your life goals. That’s how you’ll attract experiences that serve your highest good. recommended
