AU50 (PCGS) CAC H The first year of issue of

The Twenty Dollar Gold Coin Series 1907 to 1933

H The only year with Roman numerals,

designed by famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in collaboration with President Theodore Roosevelt who wished U.S. coins to more closely resemble Ancient Greek coins.

H The Roman Numerals High Relief design was

unacceptable for high speed coin production.

H In 1907, the mintage of the Roman Numerals

High Relief was very low: Only 12,367 Compared to the Arabic Numerals struck in 1907 with a mintage of 361,667

H The Mint decided to strike a limited number

and then modified the design for the balance of the year to a lower relief and with Arabic numerals.

H The CAC sticker confirms the quality for

the assigned grade.

Steve and Lesa Marsh

Beauty and the Beach Shoreline Café is truly a diamond in the sand

N

early half a mile beyond the bustling restaurants lining the harbor sits the Shoreline Café. Diners at the restaurant sport flip-flops, hats, and shorts. A pelican glides across the sea and rays of sunshine shimmer on the blue abyss. Some of the tables in the back of the restaurant sit directly on the beach so that customers can actually hear the waves crashing on the shore or dig their bare feet into the sand. Growing up in Long Beach, California, owner Steve Marsh started in the restaurant business at only thirteen years old. He claims, “Doing an office job wasn’t an option. I don’t like to sit down and be in one place.” Marsh, who shares management duties with his wife, Lesa, describes how the restaurant offers a casual, summertime setting year-round. “Many of our customers come in wearing bathing

suits or board shorts,” he says. The comfortable and unpretentious ambiance of the restaurant is also reflected in the menu. “I don’t believe in complicated food. We want to serve simple, clean food that people can enjoy day after day.” The recipes were invented with partners and friends over time, many of them on surf trips to Baja. Marsh has always believed in trial and error and a collaborative process. One of the most popular menu items is the create-your-own Baja Style Fish Tacos. Atlantic cod is deep fried and formed into tiny triangles, sitting atop a bed of green, olive oil-based cabbage slaw. Kosher salt, chili pepper flakes, and fresh-squeezed lime provide flavor boosts. There’s the option of corn or flour tortillas, which are wrapped in thin paper to stay warm. Sauces include salsa fresca, black beans, and a zesty Baja secret sauce. All sauces and dress(continued)

Breaking the bread habit

A

replacement for bread has become my new “go to.” Local entrepreneur Jeanne David of Outer Aisle Gourmet in Goleta manufactures tasty Cauliflower Pizza Crusts and Sandwich Thins/Wraps, which are now distributed throughout the West including Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and beyond. The idea for OAG’s cauliflower sandwich thins/tortillas and pizza crust was born from the decision by Jeanne and her husband, Dan, a few years ago to change the way they ate by cutting out sugar and processed carbs and increasing vegetables in their diets. Restaurants have even jumped on the bandwagon: Pizza Mizza in La Cumbre Plaza makes pizzas, sandwiches, and tasty lasagna using Foley’s products. In downtown Santa Barbara, Viva Modern Mexican in La Arcada Plaza shakes up the taco menu with cauliflower tortillas. Green Table on West de la Guerra has an amazing veggie pizza with pesto and goat cheese made with Outer Aisle’s pizza crust. Low in calories and gluten free, these “vegetables in disguise” for kids don’t quite hold together as well as a tortilla, but I heat one in a skillet, pile on my scrambled eggs, avocado, tomatoes and a dash of sour cream for a yummy low-calorie breakfast. One consumer replaced her bread habit with these and lost 30 pounds in a three-month period. Now that’s something to crow about! – Leslie A. Westbrook

ings are made fresh from scratch every day. Guests can create their own tacos with the portion size and amount of sauce they desire. The smaller size of the entrée leaves room for one of the many appetizer options beforehand. For the cooler winter months, the hearty Shoreline Seafood Soup appetizer is a savory start to lunch or dinner. Crafted in homemade fish stock with an abundance of halibut, snapper or sea bass, calamari, shrimp, and mussels, this soup gives guests a sample of the local sea fare. Leeks, fennel, and onion add subtle aroma and flavor to the appetizer, which is served with grilled bread. On a lighter note, the spicy ahi appetizer is seared rare with olive oil, soy sauce, and spicy seasonings. Carrots, cabbage, and onions accompany the ahi, which sits on a bed of sticky rice. Sunset happy hour specials featuring beer, wine, and cocktails are served Monday-Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. Buckets of Dos Equis or Coronitas heighten the summertime nostalgia year-round, along with the fact that opening hours are posted but no closing time. Marsh explains: “We close when business stops. We don’t define our closing hours.” For a truly Santa Barbara dining experience, postcard paradise is found on the Shoreline Café sand. Kicking back with a beer in hand and eating a fish taco, guests can watch kite surfers gliding, seagulls flying, children building sand castles, and a get a taste of vacation even if it’s just for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. -- By Julie Bifano Boe.

Blue Ribbon Brew Captain Fatty’s takes gold in Colorado

C

aptain Fatty’s Brewery was conceived in 2013 by three home brewers making beer on a small scale for events like First Thursday. In 2014, the facility located at 6483 Calle Real in Goleta opened. Today, only three years later, they have a fully operational brewery and taproom. The energetic owner of Captain Fatty’s, Preston Angell, believes beer brings people together and supports conversation amongst friends. He relates, “We don’t limit ourselves to any one particular style because we believe there is a style of beer for everybody.” The brew team includes Angell, Jason Osborne, and Colin Honeybourne, along with director of sales and marketing Matt Minkus. The core beers offered include Blue IPA, Vortex IPA, a German pilsner called Beach Beer, Calypso Cucumber Sour, and Stonehouse Ale, which is brewed with apricots (a personal favorite). Every month the brew team comes up with two to three new beers, one of which is always a Northeastern IPA. Their innovation was recognized this past fall at the Great American

18

FOOD & HOME

Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. With over 8,000 entries from across the United States, the competition was intense. A standout from Captain Fatty’s, a must-taste creation called Kalliope, won the gold medal in the Berliner Weisse beer category. Kalliope offers tart fruit characteristics, a touch of funk, and an overall crisp and refreshing flavor. Quality control manager Jason Osborne describes his thoughts on the gold medal win: “When they called out, ’Kalliope, Captain Fatty’s, Goleta, California,’ I actually just sat there for a few seconds – so long that my wife had to punch me in the arm and tell me to go get the award.” The Goleta tap room will be moving 100 feet just across the parking lot at the end of January 2018, and will have the same entertaining atmosphere with UNO cards on every table, other board games, and even ring toss. Weekly live music will continue as well as food from local vendors. Cheers! — Julie Bifano Boe www.captainfattys.com w w w. f o o d – h o m e . c o m

NEW ON THE SHELF

Chase Bar & Grill

Downtown Dish

L

et me play among the stars…” Ol’ Blue Eyes is singing and I’m sitting at the bar of the Chase Bar & Grill on State Street with a generous glass of velvety Cabernet. Just across from me on the wall, a tongue-in-cheek photo of Frank Sinatra’s 1938 mug shot hangs on the wall. The entire restaurant sparkles with lights that reflect off the gold mirrors and polished marble, giving this place a warm but elegant feel. The menu offers a drink intriguingly named the Al Capone, but the barkeep recommended the Happy Hour red. Winter means it’s already dark and chilly on State Street, the perfect time to be indoors with warm spirits. I sip wine and ponder a plate of spicy-chili fried calamari. Crispy and salty on the outside, tender heaven on the inside. I could pass a few hours here at the kind of bar where you expect to see Dean Martin drinking a cocktail, but my friend arrives and we proceed to a soft red-leather booth for dinner amidst a swirl of soft lights, clinking glasses, and big band standards. As I slide into our cushy booth, it feels like we’re welcome to stay for a few hours, that dinner is expected to be an event worth savoring. Soft and fluffy bread arrives with butter and a bowl of fresh Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top. I nibble as I read through a menu that’s classic New York Italian. Chicken picatta in a wine & lemon sauce, ziti mostaccioli, or perhaps a filet mignon steak with pasta. Most of the entrees come with salad, and we opt for Caesars, which arrive in chilled bowls and are just the right mix of crunchy and creamy. Tonight for me the entree is the eggplant rolletini, a dish so luxurious and filling that I’ll have plenty left over for lunch tomorrow. Strips of eggplants are breaded and fried, then rolled with a rich ricotta filling, topped with a light-handed marinara, and then baked under a soft blanket of mozzarella. This alone could be dinner, but the Chase serves it with a generous side of creamy fettucine. It’s the kind of supper you eat slowly, have a sip of wine, chat, and then eat some more. — Silver Webb

Les Légumes: Vegetable Recipes from the Market Table, the third volume in Pascale Beale’s Market Table series, revels in cooking with vegetables throughout the seasons. Grouped by key ingredients in 12 chapters, with stunning full-page photos of every recipe, delightful anecdotes, practical tips, and easy-to-make recipes that work every time, Les Légumes transforms healthy vegetable dishes into the highlight of any meal.  This book is a compendium of 110 delicious plant-based dishes, brimming with innovative ingredients and creative flavor combinations. The author’s recipes were inspired by, among other things, munching on raw asparagus in a friend’s garden, childhood adventures in the kitchen with her grandmother, and, of course, the ingredients she finds every week at local farmers’ markets. Her passion for creating vibrant, flavorpacked dishes is evident in the vast array of mouth-watering appetizers, soups, salads, and main courses that make up this title.  Highlighting the flavor, textures and colors of more than 40 different vegetables,  Les Légumes is the vegetable cookbook that truly celebrates eating  with the seasons, with spectacular and creative savory dishes. Food Network star Chef Cat Cora provides the forward. To learn more about the book or to purchase, go to pascaleskitchen.com

Buy Local, Think Global: Vino from near and far

F

rom downtown Santa Barbara (just off State Street in the “arts district” and in an industrial park off Haley) to tony Coast Village Road and to an industrial warehouse space in Carpinteria, these wine sellers each have great inventory, but more importantly a passion for their wares.

Savoy Wines

From Lazy Acres Market to his pithy wine columns (some for this magazine) to managing The Winehound, Bob Wesley has been a wine fixture in Santa Barbara since 1995. Now operating out of a 1902 building, the wine aficionado/buyer/manager is focused on value (70 wines for $15 or less, many $8-$15) with imports from Spain, France, Italy, and Australia that blend nicely with “old favorites” from our 22

FOOD & HOME

region, including Melville, Jaffurs, and Vogelsang. California varietals occupy 50 percent of the space; imports from other international small producers round out the stock. If money is no object, check out the “what’s hiding in back” blackboard — like the 2014 Screaming Eagle Cab for $1,799.99. Wesley has a keen eye for close-outs and deals, pleasing not only customers but also bosses, Savoy Deli owners Paul and Kathy Shields. Savoy Wines Santa Barbara, 18 West Anapamu Street, SB, phone: (805) 962-5353, savoywinessb.weebly.com

Renegade Wines

Steve Wayne has a penchant for any fine wine, but his Italian selection and forays are of particular note. Wayne hosts terrific wine and cheese tastings, where some of SB’s pickiest oenophiles gather to stock their cellars. Don’t have a cellar? Renegade has been storing wine for customers for over 25 years and provides redundant temperature and humidity systems, fire sprinklers, and 24-hour surveillance cameras, so you can sleep at night knowing your

bottles of 1953 Chateaux Margeaux are safely tucked away. Renegade Wines, 417 Santa Barbara St, Santa Barbara, Phone: (805) 568-1961

Carpinteria Wine Co.

Jane and Frank Dambach’s First Friday wine tastings are a must for Carpinterians who mingle with tourists who happen to find their way to “The Row,” an industrial complex off the beaten track that also boasts a brewery and meadery. Great values (and usually a free chocolate from Cali Bressan next door) make this a super wine-shopping stop. And being in a warehouse means they offer best possible prices for Central Coast faves like Brander, Margerum, and Palmina Arneis, as well as imports.

2. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium-low heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic; be sure to stir constantly so the garlic doesn’t burn. Cook until soft and translucent, roughly 5-6 minutes. Remove from the heat. 3. Transfer the onion and garlic to the blender with the tomatoes and chilis. Puree all of the ingredients together until very smooth. 4. Return the soup pot to high heat. Add the pureed tomato chili mixture all at once. It should sizzle immediately. Continue to cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens substantially. It should resemble tomato paste. Southampton by Wood-Mode.

Passilla Turkey Fritters from Savoy Café & Deli paired with Sauvignon Blanc from Stolpman Vineyards.

F

or many people, eating turkey other than on Thanksgiving is typically reserved for sandwiches or perhaps a large pot of chili. However, Paul and Kathy Shields, the owners of downtown Santa Barbara’s Savoy Café & Deli, will help you see turkey in a whole new light. Their recipe for Pasilla Turkey Fritters, served warm with creamy aioli, might just find you saying sayonara to the cranberry sauce for good!

SAVOY OFFERINGS

SAVOY CAFE & DELI Family-run Savoy Café & Deli is a local’s favorite, and for good reason. Here, The Shieldses offer a variety of comforting and healthy dishes featuring local and regional ingredients – all made from scratch every day. With a rotating selection of house-made soups, prepared salads, quiche, sandwiches, hot foods and a large variety of baked goods and even gluten free options, Savoy Café has something tasty for everyone, regardless of the time of day. WINE PAIRING When spring arrives, I tend to reach for bright, crisp and herbaceous white wines. Wines with these flavor profiles are particularly complementary to dishes featuring the abundance of green vegetables readily available this time of year – think leek and asparagus quiche, leafy green salads and spring green soup. For this 32

FOOD & HOME

A new way to gobble

By Hana-Lee Sedgwick recipe, the Shieldses suggest pairing a local Sauvignon Blanc like the 2016 Stolpman Sauvignon Blanc, which is bright, smooth and “enticingly pleasurable,” says Paul, who also co-owns Savoy Wines in Santa Barbara. “The wine’s minerality, purity of fruit and Meyer lemon characteristics are a lovely match for the green notes in the dish.” Another easy choice? “Austrian Grüner Veltliner,” he adds. “The herbaceous notes, high acidity, low alcohol and citrusy, grapefruit characteristics perfectly compliment our warmly seasoned Turkey Fritter.” After trying, I would agree that either of these are wonderful pairings with this simply delicious and comforting spring-forward meal. PASILLA TURKEY FRITTERS 2 cups shredded turkey meat 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno, roughly chopped 1 tbs pickled jalapeno juice 1 tsp fresh jalapeno, finely minced 1 pasilla chile, julienned 1 russet potato, shredded 1 tbs chopped fresh cilantro 1 tsp sea salt

1 egg, beaten 2 tbs rice flour 1 tbs sunflower oil

Directions Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Combine the turkey, pickled jalapeno, pickled jalapeno juice, fresh jalapeño, pasilla, potato, cilantro, and salt in a mixing bowl and fold together. Add the beaten egg and evenly mix into the fritter mixture. Evenly sprinkle the flour over and combine to mix in. Form into 4 patties. Heat the sunflower oil in an ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat and place the fritters in the pan. Cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes, and then flip. Place the frying pan with the fritters in the oven to finish, 10-12 minutes. Chipotle Aioli: 1 cup mayonnaise 1 tbs fresh cilantro leaves 1 tsp chipotle in adobe 1 tsp salt Zest and juice of 1 lime Combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, chipotle, salt and lime zest, and juice in a food processor and mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 20 minutes. Serve alongside fritters. Recipe courtesy of Paul Shields, Savoy Café and Deli w w w. f o o d – h o m e . c o m

Winter Fare

Classy comfort food served in Central Coast style

hen the nights are long and the coastal air is crisp, Santa Barbara’s comfort food is at its very best. Offerings of hearty meats with mushrooms and garlic mash, short ribs, lamb, chili, soups and stews are the staple choices on most winter menus. Pair with a local Santa Rita Hills Pinot or rich Santa Ynez Valley Syrah and you have the classic winter fare experience on the Central Coast. And the winter crops in this region are far more exciting than most people realize, making for some great sides and desserts, too. Prime time citrus, cherimoyas, several types of avocado, dates, leafy greens, artichokes, walnuts, arugula, and mountains of cabbage give local kitchens the necessary farm to table tools to create signature comfort food that goes way beyond what many of us can do at home. Many chefs owe their livelihoods to creating comfort connections with their customers…a connection that brings them back with friends and family in tow. The following are some of the best local offerings that we are so fortunate to enjoy all winter. w w w. f o o d – h o m e . c o m

olitical representatives looking to revive State Street may want to take a gander at the 1300 block, which has recently gotten jazzier thanks to new energy in the area. This fresh “design district” has two new shops, Giannetti Home and Early California Antiques, that bookend Indigo, the shibui shop that paved the way. Toss in a few great locally owned restaurants (Jane and Opal, CAVA, and Renaud’s across the street), a finally bustling Public Market around the corner (along with bouchon, The Nugget, Scarlett Begonia and the Olio e Limone restaurants), great theaters, and voila! here comes the neighborhood. The area is booming at night with increased foot traffic. Forerunner Genny Cummings opened her popular home furnishings showroom Indigo Interiors in this block almost 30 years ago and is thrilled with what’s happening along this section of State Street. “Downtown is changing a lot. This area, which a long time ago was the shopping district, has really undergone a renaissance and we are really happy about it,” Cummings said. “Even Indigo has evolved. We started with Asian antiques, and now we focus on contemporary furniture and have an art gallery.” Indigo mounts noteworthy art shows – like the recent paperthemed exhibit – that support artists in the community. An interior design boutique since its inception, Indigo, which also carries a wide range of unique window coverings, has evolved as tastes change. The two new home and lifestyle showrooms drawing shoppers to this “design block” are wildly different, but equally appealing. Husband/wife design duo Brooke (an interior designer) and Steve (an architect) Giannetti recently launched Giannetti Home with a well-attended opening. Oftentimes when incorporating antiques into their designs, it was difficult finding upholstered pieces to compliment their projects, so they decided to design their own. Their home furnishings line includes fine linen upholstered pieces that “reflect the California lifestyle,” elegant wooden tables,

chests, and chairs. All are made in California and all mix nicely with favorite Swedish and French antique pieces. Light and bright is the mantra at the mixed-use home furnishing/work studio/clothing space: “We design to create a calm emotional response and use a lot of natural materials, including warm leathers and velvet,” Brooke noted. Soft cashmere throws and pillows and unique decorative accent pieces include charming architectural plaster castings ($75-$400) culled from Steve’s roots: his grandfather and father restored historic buildings in Washington, D.C., as well as Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. Next door to Distinctive Framing N Art (drop your art for framing here), Eric Berg’s chockablock Early California Antiques glows with Catalina tiles and a rare Malibu tile table, alongside Bauer, Pacific, and other vintage California pottery. In addition, the store offers hundreds of one-of-a-kind pieces such as a vintage globe, a 1940s microphone and a case full of vintage jewelry. Art lines the walls – Anders Aldrin is spotlighted – and prices run the gamut. “Santa Barbara is a destination for people who love old Spanish, Californian, and Mexican style and architecture,” said Berg, a former awardwinning costume designer and stylist for 120 music videos, who has draped Angelina Jolie and Janet Jackson. He moved his Hollywood showroom to our area, and has found the perfect spot to showcase his wares and furnishings. These include Monterey design furniture that perfectly reflects the nearby Arlington Theatre’s 1930s Mission Revival style. If you can’t find something to take home from his new shop, there are over 5,000 items displayed on the website and some 4,000 additional pieces in his Oxnard warehouse. — Leslie A.

Cozy Contemporary By Bryan Henson

A

rchitecture and design are continuously evolving. Trends come and go, color palettes change, and our homes’ dÊcor evolves to reflect our current culture. In the last five years we have noticed a subtle change in the architecture of local homes that we have been building and remodeling. Many traditional cottages, bungalows, ranch houses and even Spanish colonial revival homes are being transformed into a more contemporary look and feel. Many people consider contemporary homes to be cold, stark, monochromatic, and unlivable. Though it is true that many of the cutting edge architectural homes can seem like this, most contemporary homes are being built to live in. Contemporary homes can be warm, inviting and yes, even cozy. Most of our clients want to simplify and declutter their homes. Heavy moldings, ornate cabinetry, and complicated systems no longer top the wish list. At the same time, they want their homes to be durable, easy to maintain, and inspiring to live in. Contemporary architecture can achieve all of these design criteria, especially if you focus on a few important features. 46

FOOD & HOME

Many of our past clients especially like how contemporary homes are typically easier to maintain. Contemporary homes tend to use more durable materials, like concrete, stucco, hardwoods, and stone as the basic building materials and finishes. These materials hold up better to the elements and wear and tear. Additionally, because of the lack or ornate detailing, they are often easier to clean and keep looking great. The right blend of natural materials, stone, furnishings, and plantings can bring warmth to any space. Wood elements, such as built-in cabinetry, wood ceilings, floors, and accent walls and can be brought in to soften harder, colder surfaces like concrete and glass. Artwork, furnishings, and accessories can be used to add color, softness, and comfort to the simplicity of a contemporary home. A strong visual connection to the outdoors, water, and plant life also contributes to a warm, homey feel. Fireplaces are also a great way to warm up as space both physically and psychologically.

IN THE GARDEN

A rose is a rose is a rose… Preparing for the splendor By Lisa Cullen

T

he Rose is one of the oldest flowers known to man. First cultivated about 5,000 years ago in China, it is said that the Emperor at the time of Confucius had 600 books in his library dedicated to their care. The Rose garden of the Empress of France, Josephine, contained an astonishing 2,562 roses and included every known variety. Roses take a bit more work than Ceanothus, but I think they are worth the extra effort. With a small amount of knowledge anyone can have nice Roses.

Location, Location, Location

This mantra doesn’t just apply to Real Estate. Roses want sun (at least 5 hours a day), good airflow and good drainage. If you have clay soil you would do better to build raised beds. When planning a dedicated “Rose Garden” allow at least 3 feet between each plant. Hybrid Tea Roses and Floribundas (such as Peace and Julia Child) are best planted in their own designated area, as they need special treatment. In contrast, Landscape Roses (such as Icebergs) can be integrating into your existing landscape and are practically year-round bloomers. Once you have selected the location, prepare for planting. The holes should be 18” deep and about 2 feet across. Amend the soil in a ratio of about 50% Rose Planting Mix and 50% native soil. Mix it really well, put some Bone meal at the bottom of the hole and then plant your Rose. If you replace a Rose in your garden, be sure to clean out all of the old soil and use new soil and new amendments, never put a new Rose in an old hole. w w w. f o o d – h o m e . c o m

Choosing Roses

When selecting Roses, shop at one of the local nurseries rather than the big chain stores. The local nursery will only stock varieties that thrive in our zone and will take the time to help you choose the perfect rose for you. Winter is a good time to plant new roses, particularly because January is bare root season, when you can get the best value for your money. The best place to buy Roses in Santa Barbara is La Sumida Nursery (165 S. Patterson Ave). They have a very large selection and the expertise to guide your purchase.

Rose Care Basics

After planting, apply a thick layer of mulch and water roses well. Feed them Mid-March and again in June. It is important to stay away from chemicals. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides kill microorganisms in the soil that the plants need to thrive. A number of excellent organic Rose foods are available at your local nursery. A weekly application of compost tea and spraying with a natural soap and water solves most pest problems, so there is never a need to resort to toxic chemicals. Continue to “dead head” your roses to keep them flowering. Around September cut them back by about a third and feed one last time. This will ensure a beautiful new round of flowers in 60-70 days. Each year Roses need a 2-3 month “rest”. When November rolls around, stop dead heading, allow them to make hips and do nothing but water. Pruning midJanuary “wakes them up” and they start growing again.

If you want to learn how to prune roses, volunteer Mid-January at the Rose garden across from the Santa Barbara Mission, where you’ll get instruction from Master Rosarians. Also, in January, there are free rose pruning workshops at La Sumida Nursery.
