here are professions in which badges from a school of some kind have

become a necessity: medicine, the practice of the law, the enforcement of the law. Cooking for restaurants is heading that way, says Executive Chef William Ruiz of the Woodside Bakery & Cafe. But for now, for himself, for longtime Pastry Chef Jesus Mendoza and for Sous Chef Ismael Guido, they don’t need no stinking badges. Mr. Mendoza, who is 35, came to the Woodside Bakery 20 years ago to wash dishes, and moved up by proving himself at various pastry specialties. Mr. Guido, 42, started as a dishwasher 18 years ago; he has some sous chef duties but not the long hours, and for a reason: He also cooks at a Stanford University dining hall. Mr. Ruiz, 48, puts in long hours at the cafe and says he refined his craft while working for other chefs. He’s been the head chef at the bakery and cafe since summer 2012. At times, it’s probably a high-wire act, but always with a net: it’s a family place with a menu that changes slowly, warmth that endures, and regulars who order the same thing time after time. “I think part of the magic here is being a family business. That means a lot to people. It’s like comfort food,” says Jan Sweyer, who with her brother Mark Sweyer bought the bakery and cafe out of bankruptcy in 2006. Their joint career began with the purchase of a deli in Burlingame in 1976 and went on to include an Irish pub in Cupertino and a bar and a cafe, both in Redwood City. They grew up in Woodside, went to community schools and have worked with their classmates’ children. “We have personally hired, and fired, the children of the children we grew up with,” Ms. Sweyer says. “This is our home. This is home. We’re deep in these roots.” Continued on next page

The importance of soup

If Mr. Ruiz carries himself with the air of a street fighter, it may be a consequence of where he went to culinary school: “The school of hard knocks,� he says. Culinary schools have it backward by teaching technique ahead of or instead of cooking science; because the school environment is highly controlled, graduates tend to think they know it all, he says. Acceptance in culinary school once required two letters of reference and time in a professional kitchen. Today, “if you have money, you can get into culinary school,� he says. “Schools are a big machine, a big cog. You feed the machine to keep it turning. ... Cooking is like going to war. Who do you want doing your fighting? West Pointers or guys who have been in the trenches?� To bring out his war cry, try ordering something not on the menu. “You want to enjoy your dinner?� he says in reply to such a hypothetical request. “Good. Stay here and eat what I cook. You can cook your own dinner — at home. You come to my restaurant, you’re eating my food.� It’s partly a business decision. “If Joe Schmo comes in and asks for something completely wretched, he’ll tell his friends: ‘I ordered something that was putrid and the chef made it for me and it was putrid.’ I’d rather have him leave upset� that he didn’t get what he wanted, he says. Chef Ruiz discovered his life’s work in Seattle working for Chef Walter Pisano at Tulio Ristorante. Mr. Ruiz made a

different soup every day without traditional thickeners such as cream or roux (flour browned in butter). “Working there really pushed my soup-making capabilities to the limit,� Mr. Ruiz says. “When I went to work with Walter, that’s when I realized that this would be my career.� Asked to name a soup from those days, Mr. Ruiz recalls a white bean puree, made with onions, cannellini beans, a bay leaf, preserved lemon and vegetable stock. At the Woodside cafe, there are two soups daily, one of them always vegan and gluten-free. Spinach and mushroom soup is popular, server

Kacey Crosby says. “People come in and eat just that, just that and a focaccia.� Mr. Ruiz says that one of his first soup-related acts at the cafe was to end the use of chicken bouillon. “Throw all that out,� he says he told his staff upon seeing a big box of it. “Cooking is not about convenience, nor is it about taking shortcuts, and that’s what it comes down to.� Despite his emphasis on fundamentals, some members of the cooking staff do occasionally take a shorter route. “They think there’s a shortcut,� Mr. Ruiz says. “I tell them, ‘If there is a quicker

way to do something to where the end result is the same, I’d let you know that.’� They do get it, though, and it’s inspiring “coming in here day in and day out and seeing them grasp it.� Don’t be fat

Pastry Chef Mendoza also learned his skills on the job at the bakery. He began as a dishwasher at 15, expressed an interest in baking, and spent 18 months making Danish pastries, he says. Next came six months of cookies and a year of cakes. “Whatever station (my boss) showed me, I learned fast, quickly,� Mr. Mendoza says. He

TOWN OF WOODSIDE INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR PLANNING COMMISSION Districts 1 Unexpired term to February 2016 The Planning Commission participates in the administration of the planning laws and policies of the Town. It is responsible for recommending to the Town Council ordinances and resolutions necessary to implement the General Plan and adopted development policy. The Commission also conducts necessary public hearings to administer the planning laws and policies of the Town and acts upon applications for zoning amendments, conditional use permits, variances, subdivisions and other related functions as may be assigned by the Council. The Planning Commission meets on the ďŹ rst and third Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.; Commissioners are appointed for a four-year term; one member is appointed from each Council district. A listing of district addresses is provided on the Town’s web site at www.woodsidetown.org, Town Hall, Boards and Committees, Planning Commission, Districts. Interested residents may request information and applications Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM-12 noon and 1-5:00 PM at Town Hall, 2955 Woodside Road, at the Town’s web site, www.woodsidetown.org, Residents, Volunteer Opportunities, or telephone the Town Clerk at (650) 851-6790. Deadline for applications is Tuesday, March 5, 2013, 5:00 PM.

became head baker and then pastry chef. That apprenticeship trajectory continues. He’s trained about 200 bakers, 20 of whom are now pastry chefs, he says. Making pastry is about love, Mr. Mendoza says, the love of customers biting into one and having the words, “Oh, it’s good,� arise from somewhere inside. Among his students: his future wife and his brother, both of whom still work there. Much like buying and eating pastry, making it is about self-discipline. Is it hard not to overdo the sampling of one’s work? “Yes, it’s very hard, very hard,� Mr. Mendoza says with a broad smile. Sample 10 different items and you may have ingested 2,000 calories. “You have to run every single day� to keep the weight off, he says. Conscious of this, he says he tries to keep the fat content just above the point at which its absence might be noticed. “I want customers to eat, but I don’t want them to be fat.� The bakery makes four sandwich breads for the cafe: Tuscan, ciabatta, rye and sourdough — and some 600 focaccia every day. Among breads for sale in the bakery is a 100 percent whole wheat loaf. Pure whole wheat bread can be tricky in terms of taste and texture. The key, Mr. Mendoza says, is allowing the bread adequate rise time. While white breads need just two hours, whole wheat needs six. Patience and precision are important in baking, he says, adding: “I want people to eat more healthy bread.� Timing, it’s everything

Mr. Guido, a man of few words for this interview, says he came to the attention of the management after they noticed his interest in cooking. “I noticed that I liked it, too, and I love it now,� he says. And the customers love it. “We try to take items away (from the menu) but people ask for it,� he adds. “All the food is really good.� “I don’t think anyone can touch Ismael on fish and meat dishes,� Ms. Sweyer says. It’s his timing, she says, his understanding of how the entree continues to cook after it’s off the stove. “He cooks them to perfection. It will be perfect when it gets to the table.� How is it working for Mr. Ruiz? “I listen,� Mr. Guido says. “I’ve got the knowledge, I’ve got the experience, but I listen.� A

Turkowski says, there tends to be some disagreement about the direction of songs. “There’s definitely some tribulations,” he adds. “And trials,” Mr. Sutton chimes in. The band practices when all its members are in town, which happens only when there are breaks from school. This past summer band members consistently practiced every three days to gear up for their August sold-out gig at Angelica’s Bistro in Redwood City. The main focus of the group is the instrumental sound, complemented by the deep voice of Noah Stid. As the main singer, he takes on the responsibility of writing the lyrics. “The lyrics usually have a lot of meaning behind them; we just tell him not to write about his girlfriend too much!” Mr. Sutton jokes. As a unit, the band is mostly influenced by Gov’t Mule, a Southern folk-rock group formed out of the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. T-Sex covered two Gov’t Mule songs on its first album. Yet the members have a conflicting preferences when it comes to music, ranging from bluegrass to metal. Their friendships and professionalism transcend individual quarrels, they say. The band, Mr. Sutton says, “is really what all of our tastes come together as.” Visit tinyurl.com/Band-122 to see the band’s website.

Myron “Mike” Beigler Nov. 8, 1926 – Jan. 17, 2013

Myron “Mike” Beigler, biochemist, artist, and longtime resident of Portola Valley, California, died from cancer on January 17, 2013, at the age of 86. Mike was born in 1926 in Detroit, Michigan. Invited to join the Army Specialized Training Program at 17, Mike was preparing to join the troops abroad when he contracted meningitis, causing him to lose most of his hearing, but enabling him to study biology at the University of Michigan through the remainder of the war. In 1947, Mike moved to New York City to attend the Art Student’s League, immersing himself in the burgeoning abstract expressionist movement with fellow students Larry Rivers and Alfred Leslie. Together they transferred their GI Bills to New York University in 1948, where Mike earned a BS in Art Education, learning and teaching ceramics while spending his evenings with Tony Smith, Robert Motherwell, and Willem deKooning amongst others. Soon thereafter, matters of practicality turned Mike’s attention from art towards his other true passion: science. He earned his BS degree in biology and chemistry from NYU in 1953, eventually moving to California to work for Lockheed on the Polaris nuclear submarine missile system, preparing reports for President Eisenhower. Mike then embarked on an innovative and prolific career in the field of amino acids and nutrition science. By the end of his career, Mike was named on over 40 U.S. and international patents, having traveled the world and worked with companies in Japan and Germany. From the late eighties onwards, Mike rededicated himself to ceramics and sculpture. He developed a technique whereby he immersed cloth in hot wax, draping the pieces over each other, and finally creating a bronze rendition of the sculpture. In hanging each piece, Mike sought to explore the beauty and simplicity of gravity itself. Mike will be remembered for his extraordinary intelligence and talent in both the arts and sciences, his insatiable curiosity, kindness, and readiness to support and mentor those who were lucky to call him friends and family. He is survived by his wife of twenty years, Foster Beigler. PA I D

Kramer wins Cyclo-cross title Henry Kramer of Menlo Park won the men’s 55-59 UCI Cyclocross Masters World Championship on Jan. 31 in Louisville, Kentucky. Racing for the California Giant Berry Farms team, Kramer finished the threelap race in 37 minutes and 43 Henry Kramer seconds, just 4 seconds ahead of the second place finisher, Randy Fields. The world championship is an event Kramer has competed in 10 times, eight times in Belgium. A sportsman who has been bicycle racing for 30 years, he says cyclocross racing has “quite a group of riders in Northern California, especially around Santa Cruz. This is one of six master titles that has been brought back to the Bay Area. Several of us hope to defend our titles next season, which will probably mean returning to Europe.�

This is the first time in its 64-year history that the championship has been held outside Europe, he said. According to Wikipedia, cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing that is strongest in the traditional road-cycling countries, such as Belgium, France and the Netherlands. Races typically take place in the fall or winter and consist of many laps of a short course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles, requiring the rider to dismount, carry the bike, and remount. One story about the origins of cyclocross is that European roadracers in the early 1900s would race each other to the next town over and were allowed to cut through farmers’ fields, over fences, or take any other shortcuts in order to win. This was a way for them to stay in shape during the winter months and put a twist on roadracing, says Wikipedia. Continued on next page

Olympian heads aquatics outreach Brenda Villa, the most decorated female water polo player ever (four-time Olympian, three-time world champion), has joined Menlo Swim and Sport as head of aquatics outreach. Ms. Villa, who won a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics with the U.S. women’s water polo squad, will be in charge of launching a new water polo program for girls 14 and under at Belle Haven pool in Menlo Park. The program, which starts in March, will emphasize reaching girls in the neighborhood. She will also hold girls’ performance clinics and camps for experienced water polo players from around the Peninsula. Cost of the Belle Haven water polo program will be $80 a month, which includes two lessons a week. Scholarships will be available through the Beyond Barriers Athletic Foundation. The Belle Haven pool is located at 100 Terminal Ave., across the street from the Onetta Harris Community Center. Until this year, it was closed in the winter.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap. com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search� to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction. com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

On March 12, 2013, at 12:30pm, CalWestern Reconveyance Corporation, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded April 10, 2008, as Inst. No. 2008039519 in book XX, page XX of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of San Mateo County, State of California, executed by Consuelo De Guzman, A Married Woman, will sell at public auction to highest bidder for cash, cashier's check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the financial code and authorized to do business in this state: At the main entrance of the city hall of records 401 Marshall Street Redwood City, California, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: Completely described in said deed of trust The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1658 Purdue Ave East Palo Alto CA 94303-1239 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $321,013.84.

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you

to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1369338-31. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web Site.
