Winter means Green if you’re eating seasonal
The farm stand
by Betsy Denson email@example.com
Eating organic is all about enjoying what’s in season so I hope you like greens. Collard, mustard and turnip greens, kohlrabi, kale, swiss shard and broccoli are available vegetables at The Farm Stand on Wakeﬁeld in Garden Oaks right now, as well as cauliﬂower and red beets. Mickey Morales heads up the crew of The Farm Stand – who all come to the market rain or shine – and says that the end of the month will mark the stand’s two
year anniversary. They are now being hosted by Texas Auto Group and Morales thanks them for their hospitality. Because the available space for the market is limited, Morales allows farmers to bring other people’s products. He even sells chickens from Bryan Farm Chickens himself. “It’s on an honor system,” he said with regard to the organic nature of the outside products. But since the vendors who are selling them are equally committed to the organic movement, it is ample oversight. If you come for Morales’ killer
omelets and breakfast tacos with farm fresh ingredients, stay and shop with the rest of the crew. The Purma family, who lives just down the street, comes every weekend for breakfast and to buy farm fresh eggs. There are also craft vendors from time to time. Here’s a run down of some of what’s available: Cathy Sullivan of Happy Heart Farms sells produce, eggs and citrus as well as honey, olive oil and goat cheese. She says that the season for citrus is November through February, though like everyone else, she harvested trees before the recent cold snap. She also said that
Cathy Sullivan shows her organic produce to potential customers at The Farm Stand on Saturday.
WAITER OF THE MONTH
Cavatore’s Isaac Galvan ers. We’re like a big family. I want to retire from here. I can’t picture myself somewhere else.”
by Michael Sudhalter firstname.lastname@example.org When Isaias “Isaac” Galvan began working as a waiter at Cavatore’s Italian Restaurant in 1987, he never expected that he’d still be serving customers at the renowned restaurant at 2120 Ella Blvd. “(It’s rare) if someone works for 10 years in a restaurant,” Galvan said. Galvan, 53, has come to love the customers and the atmosphere of Cavatore’s over the years. Q: What do you like the most about being a waiter at Cavatore’s? “Every day is different. You never have the same day. I like to be around people and talking to people. You learn food and wine. It’s very interesting. There are so many wines and so many ﬂavors.” Q: You’ve served generations of customers. What has that been like? “They came in as young children and now they’re in college.
Q: Working at Cavatore’s has become a tradition for the Galvan family. Tell us about that. “My wife, Maria, works here as a busgirl. My 19-year-old daughter, Megan, a senior at Waltrip, is a busgirl and waitress and my 15year-old son, Junior, a freshman at Waltrip, is a busboy.”

People come back to Houston and say ‘I have to eat here’.” Q: Do you enjoy working for the Cavatore Family? “The Cavatore Family are very nice people. If there’s an emergency, they say ‘just go take care of it.’ I love this place, from my heart. I love the family and my co-work-
Q: Do you have any pet peeves as a waiter? “When someone does something bad to my co-workers, I feel like they’re doing it to me.” Q: How do you want customers to walk away from the Cavatore’s experience? “I want to make the customer feel like they’re the best in the world, because they are the best.”
man, coastal look. Construction is picking up too at the site of the new Berryhill Baja Grill on 43rd Street in Oak Forest. Although owner Park Blair was unavailable for comment, a representative from the corporate ofﬁce said that they expect Blair to announce an opening date in the next two months. It won’t be soon enough for area residents. One place where there is not a lot going on is the future site of Surﬁng Cowboys – once the home of That Pizza Place on Ella, at 3322 Ella Blvd. Liberty Kitchen’s representative tells The Leader that there are no current construction plans either for Surﬁng Cowboys or Lee’s Fried Chicken and Doughnuts. The focus right now is starting work on the Liberty Kitchen in Austin. Culture Map reports that MAM’s House of Ice has a permanent location at 1040 West Cavalcade about a mile away from their former stand. The 780-square-
foot storefront will remain open now through the grand opening of the new restaurant in late January according to co-owner Ariana Espinoza who owns the “snoball” emporium along with Mary Ann Mcbee (whose initials are the venue’s namesake). Espinoza told CultureMap that the house-like trailer that sat at 20th and Rutland Street will no longer be parked at that location, but will instead cater private events and visit festivals. It will also travel to different neighborhoods. You can get your snoball ﬁx Tuesday-Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. Upcoming Events As Elizabeth Villarreal reported in her Neighbors column, the Leather Apron Foundation will host the Leather Apron Round Up from 6-10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 at SPJST Hall, 1435 Beall

Restaurant Roundup …and other Leader Nibbles Ken Bridge is ready to roll on his ﬁrst Tex Mex restaurant, which will be called The El. Already a well-known restaurateur in the area with a growing track record of success: Pink’s Pizza, Shepherd Park Draught House, Lola and Witchcraft Tavern & Provisions, the newest addition to the culinary queue is expected to be open at 602 Studewood by Cinco de Mayo. Also Bridge’s Dragon Bowl, formerly at 1221 W. 11th St. in the Heights (which is now the current location of Bridge’s Witchcraft Tavern) is expected to open in another Heights location – still to be determined – toward the end of the year. Workers are also busy at Facundo Restauranté on Alba Road in Garden Oaks. Miguel Facundo said, “Everything looks good and we are moving along again. I’d like to open in May/June but it’s also up to the city and city inspections.” The restaurant is still expected to be continental fare with a Crafts-
her eggs are in short supply October through January. Even though her chickens are slightly domesticated, their nature kicks in and the fear of having babies who won’t survive the cold slows down egg production. “I always sell out,” she said. Angela Winston who was proﬁled recently by Elizabeth Villarreal in the Neighbors column sells treats from Liberation Gluten Free Bakery every other weekend. She said that her brownies and cookies are top sellers and has recently introduced an allergy free pizza crust. On alternate weekends, Chef Megan Rasmussen sells her baked goods and preserves. Nisha’s Quick N Ezee Indian Food’s big sellers are the Lamb Samosa and the Chicken Tikka Masala although there are vegan and vegetarian options as well. Many of the all natural ingredients to make the food are purchased by owner Manish Puri at the Eastside Farmers Market where he is a vendor as well. Kristi Edmonson from Kristi’s Kitchen and her husband split their time on Saturdays. She comes to The Farm Stand and her husband goes to the Farmers Market at Imperial in Sugar Land to sell her homemade jellies. She said the Texas Pepper Jelly is popular as is the Meyer Lemon Jelly. In order to control temperature and consistency, her batches are small – one batch equals about six jars of jelly.

Brash Brewing Company Coming to Houston Ben Fullelove, owner of Petrol Station, will bring Brash Brewing Company to Houston this year, according to recent report by CultureMap.com. He secured a 13,000 sq. ft. warehouse, a 30 barrel brewhouse and canning equipment to launch the project. His goal is to deliver beer by June. He says that the growth of Houston’s craft beer scene, particularly that of Karbach Brewing Co., made him comfortable with the decision to move Brash to Houston. Brash Brewing was started by Fullelove as a contract brewing company in Massachusetts, but changes to Texas beer laws allow him to obtain a brewpub license and maintain his interest in Petrol Station, the Oak Forest bar known for craft brew.
Petrol Named One of America’s Best Beer Bars
Petrol Station was recently named one of America’s 100 Best Beer Bars of 2014 by Draft Magazine. There are new bars opening every second, and a “good beer bar” no longer equals a zillion taps. After six years of making the annual list of America’s Best Beer Bars, the folks at Draft Magazine had to rethink the deﬁnition of a top-notch beer bar. They needed to leave the places saying, “Now there’s a bar that really, really cares about your experience with beer.” That means having well-cared for, thoughtfully selected beer with an eye toward variety, trends and tradition, in the kind of place you’d want to stay awhile, delivered by someone who knows their stuff. Petrol Station is located at 985 Wakeﬁeld Drive. For more about America’s 100 Best Beer Bars, visit http://draftmag.com/features/ americas-100-best-beer-bars2014/.

Record Year for Saint Arnold
Saint Arnold Brewing Company, the oldest craft brewery in Texas, reported record shipments of more than 58,000 barrels of beer in 2013. It was the third consecutive year that the brewery’s production has increased by approximately 9,000 barrels from the previous year, representing a 19 percent increase in overall production. Since moving operations to just north of downtown in 2010, Saint Arnold’s production has more than doubled. Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower Beer was the top seller in 2013, followed by Amber Ale and Santo, a black Kölsch that was introduced in 2011 and won a World Beer Cup medal in 2012. When combined, the brewery’s lineup of seasonal beers sell more than any one year-round brew. For more details, visit http:// www.craftbeer.com/news/brew-

Fat Cat Creamery
1901 N. Shepherd Drive www.fatcatcreamery.com Ice Cream Scoops: $3.50-$5.50 Floats and Shakes: $6.50 Sodas and Sundaes: $3.75-$9.50 Kid Friendly: Every kid likes ice cream, but it might be second ﬁddle to exotic frozen yogurt LE’s Favorite: Spiced Cream Crunch in a Waﬄe Cone
Review: Fat Cat Creamery
adds sophistication to dessert
There is a scene in the Quentin Tarantino classic ﬁlm “Pulp Fiction” where John Travolta’s character Vincent is appalled that a milkshake in a swanky retro diner in Los Angeles would charge $5. He doesn’t dare order it himself but makes sure he takes a pull of the rich ice creamy drink from Uma Thurman instead. Leader Eater couldn’t help but think of what Travolta said next when I swung by the newly-opened Fat Cat Creamery and took a sip of their pricey milkshake I had ordered for The Bomber (my ﬁve-year-old going on 15). “I don’t know if it was worth ﬁve dollars,” Travolta said in Pulp Fiction, “but it was pretty good.” (I made a minor tweak to the exact quote to account for this being a family publication.) Now you have to take into account that Tarantino’s ﬂick hit theaters in 1994 and factoring in CPI over the last couple of decades, the high-end milkshake market has long surpassed the $5 peak. But we can all agree that Fat Cat’s asking price of $6.50 is in the upper echelon of stirred ice cream and milk “I don’t know if it was worth $6.50 but…”). Fat Cat is justiﬁed in cranking up the asking price for its wares. Their ice creams, push pops, sundaes, sodas and of course milkshakes are all cow to cone, incorporating Texas milk and eggs as well as preservative-limited ingredients into their creatively distinct small-batch ice cream. The Cats, as they call themselves, have been slinging this stuff out of local coffee shops, food trucks and even their own ice cream cart for years. The space on Shepherd Drive is Fat Cats’ foray into brick and mortar
and the quaint space has the feel of old-time drugstore soda fountain, minus the squatty-seated counter. But as I said before, their prices don’t take me back to generations of old. Before I start veering off into curmudgeonly, skinﬂint territory, for the record, Leader Eater doesn’t mind shelling out premium prices for what is clearly topshelf desserts. Fat Cats have injected culinary sophistication into ice cream with top shelf twinges like Mexican Vanilla in their vanilla ice cream, Callebut milk chocolate and Texas stouts in their chocolate ice cream and hand cut strawberries in their pink stuff. Leader Eater was more than satisﬁed with the Spiced Cream Crunch in a Brown Butter Brown Sugar Wafﬂe Cone, which was part of Fat Cats’ roster of rotating seasonal ﬂavors. My other choices on this particular day included Creamy Winterberry, Brown Butter Praline, Waterloo Strawberry Buttermilk and Boozy Eggnog made with Gulf Coast rum and brandy, to name a few. But if you are bringing the kids by Fat Cat, be prepared that, with the invasion of Technicoloredtoppings and DIY frozen yogurt joints in this part of town, they probably aren’t going to recognize the value in a high-end Milk Chocolate Stout milkshake. After devouring the whipped cream on top and taking a half-dozen or so polite slurps of said milkshake, The Bomber handed it back to me to ﬁnish. Fat Cats might be revolutionizing high-brow frozen dessert but its ice creams are probably best suited for those of the age that can also enjoy watching a movie like Pulp Fiction.
Neighbors: Just what is the Leather Apron Roundup? by Elizabeth Villareal firstname.lastname@example.org Who knew 80 could look this good? Happy, happy birthday to Irene Evans who will celebrate her 80th birthday on Jan. 17. Irene is a very busy woman who enjoys going out to eat with friends, traveling and having adventures with various groups of friends, taking exercise classes at Evans was a long the YMCA, way from 80 in this and solv- picture but she just ing Sudoku reached a milestone. puzzles, her favorite hobby. Irene’s family, children Denise, Darby, Welton, Duane, Reonda; grandchildren Holly, Anthony, Daron, Mack, Rachel, Travis, Kari, Tyler, Daniel, Jacob, Alanna and Tony; great-grandchildren Dillon, Hannah, Skylar, Lylah, JJ, Falon, and Brooks; along with Irene’s special friend, Mike, loves her very much and would like for her to know how very blessed they all feel to have her in their lives as a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. The Leather Apron Foundation, a new organization in our community, is hosting its inaugural fundraiser, Leather Apron Roundup, at SPJST Lodge No. 88 from 6 to 10 p.m. on Jan. 25. In 1727, Benjamin Franklin formed the Leather Apron Club of skilled workers and visionary thinkers; they came from different backgrounds, yet they all shared a common spirit of inquiry and a desire to help their community. The Leather Apron Foundation formed by several neighbors is based on the philosophy “com-
passion for neighbors, service for community,” which truly deﬁnes the wonderful neighborhoods of Garden Oaks, Oak Forest, Shepherd Park Plaza, Greater Heights, and surrounding neighborhoods. The goal of the LAF is to deliver direct, no-strings-attached donations to local individuals in need and to foster community through low cost, family-friendly gatherings and events. With the LAF’s philosophy in mind, this ﬁrst fundraiser at SPJST, located at 1435 Beall Street, will beneﬁt three entities: the Faith Alliance who each year chooses a junior student at St. Pius X High School who makes service a priority in his or her life and will thus be awarded a scholarship towards his or her senior year tuition (several LAF members are St. Pius X alumni); Grace United Methodist Church’s Food Pantry in the Heights; and Oaks Dads Club with the funds earmarked to go towards providing deﬁbrillators to be strategically placed on its grounds. This family friendly event will feature BBQ by the Whiskey Wasted Cookers (some of whom you just might know), beer, and a live musical performance by the Darwin Macon Band. A silent auction will be held with items such as a wine tasting for six at The Corkscrew (ol’ Andy Adams is also a St. Pius X alum) and custom made children’s picnic tables, and there will also be a rafﬂe to beneﬁt the family of Matthew Garman, a beloved ﬁrst grader from Oak Forest Elementary who recently passed away, to help defray medical expenses. For more information or to donate a silent auction item, check the web site leatherapronfoundation.org or contact Jonathan Kolmetz at email@example.com or 281-723-5707. Donations of silent auction items will be accepted through Jan. 17. You will be hearing more about the LAF, a group of our amazing neighbors who are truly making a difference.

Smoke on the Bayou (middle label) has a following but sample them all to pick your favorite.
Craft Brews Put a Buﬀ Brew Tour on your To Do list A non-descript building at 5301 Nolda Street really comes alive each Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. That’s because it’s the location of the Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company who started offering brewery tours in May 2012. On a recent Saturday afternoon, more than 200 people – their biggest crowd yet – came in to ﬁnd out just how Buff Brew makes their Heritage Series beers (1836) and their ever growing Secessionist Series (examples of which include Gingerbread Stout, 1912, Summer Ale, Smoke on the Bayou and More Cowbell). Of course they also want to sample the product, and there’s plenty of that too, as well as games and sometimes food trucks. And just who leads the tours? Surprisingly enough, it’s volunteers like home brewer Devin Brennan and Sarah Power who came in for the ﬁrst tour and then helped lead the second one. “Devin talked to owner [Rassul Zarinfar],” said Power. “It’s all volunteers, that’s why it is so fun.” Paul Kurywchak recently moved to Houston and he quickly became part of the Friends of the Brewery too. “It’s not really formal. When people wonder in we just show them around,” said Kurywchak. “We don’t take tips.”
Event coordinator and friend of the owner, Tre’ O’Brien said the event is growing in popularity and that weather pending it’s an indoor/outdoor event. Formerly, people paid for the tour itself and enjoyed a sample after, but after a change in the laws, people can come buy tokens for beers, which they do, even if they don’t take the tour. The brewery itself is Houston based and is inﬂuenced by Texas tradition. Head brewer Ryan Robertson crafts beers that are sold at Bombers, Specs, D&Q Market and the Hay Merchant, as well as establishments in Katy and Austin. The Buff Brew group said that the Gingerbread Stout – the ﬁrst beer after 1836 – enjoys a cult following as does Smoke on the Bayou in which the barley is, you guessed it, smoked. As far as trends on the craft brew scene, O’Brien said that barrel aged beer is something that a lot of people are doing right now. Beer that is aged in barrels which once held merlot or bourbon will pick up the ﬂavors of it as well. Don’t take my word for it, stop in for a tour yourself and sample the stock. - Betsy Denson

Are you a responsible pet owner? What about your neighbors?
The American Veterinary Medical Association has approved these Guidelines for Responsible Pet Ownership • Committing to the relationship for the life of the pet(s). • Avoiding impulsive decisions about obtaining pet(s). • Recognizing that ownership of pet(s) requires an investment of time and money. • Keeping only the type and number of pets for which an appropriate and safe environment can be provided. • Ensuring pets are properly identied (i.e., tags, microchips, or tattoos) and that registration information is kept up-to-date. • Adherence to local ordinances, including licensing and leash requirements. • Controlling pet(s)’ reproduction through managed breeding, containment, or spay/neuter. • Establishing and maintaining a veterinarian-client patient relationship. • Providing preventive (e.g., vaccinations, parasite control) and therapeutic health care for the life of the pet(s). • Socialization and appropriate training for pet(s). • Preventing pet(s) from negatively impacting other people, animals and the environment. • Providing exercise and mental stimulation appropriate to the pet(s) age, breed, and health status. • Making alternative arrangements if caring for the pet is no longer possible.
Always call your Vet if you have any concerns or questions
