Rhinoplasty, State of the Art: Optimal Shape and Function When Dr. Bahman Guyuron finished his plastic surgery training at Cleveland Clinic and facial surgery training at Toronto University in the 1980s, he was intrigued by his and others ability to look at the noses of rhinoplasty patients and determine which of the three famous and talented Cleveland plastic surgeons Bahman Guyuron, MD at the time had performed the procedure. Decades ago, rhinoplasty was more art than science, and art is predominantly influenced by the individual taste. Naturally, this resulted in the creation of prototype noses that looked “surgical.” From that time forward, Dr. Guyuron made it his mission to strengthen the science behind this surgery to prevent art from governing the outcomes. Following years of research, which culminated in the publication of dozens of articles, many textbook chapters and a book he authored, Dr. Guyuron developed a scientific means of analyzing an individual’s face and matching the ideal nose to their face. His state-of-the-art approach creates natural congruity, which ensures that even with a radical change to the nose, it would look like the nose the person was born with. Visiting his website’s photo gallery of patients who have allowed him to post their pictures following rhinoplasty, it becomes clear that no two noses look exactly alike. Rhinoplasty remains among the top five most commonly requested cosmetic surgeries in the nation today. Fortunately for those who are interested in making a change that will not only enhance the aesthetics of their nose, but their entire face, if needed, internationally renowned rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Guyuron is here to help. With nearly 40 years of experience performing more than 15 thousand state-of-the-art rhinoplasty procedures on patients from Northeast Ohio and around the world, Dr. Guyuron has earned a reputation for delivering visually appealing and natural-looking results. The first step toward achieving a new look is a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Guyuron, during which he evaluates a patient’s case and explains the surgery in detail, its anticipated outcomes and what to expect following the procedure.

Rhinoplasty may be an ideal solution for individuals with one or more of the following complaints: • Oversized or wide nose • Long or short nose • Asymmetrical, crooked nose • Bulbous, drooping or upturned nose • Large or flaring nostrils • Residual flaws from previous procedures Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis, using either an open or closed approach. During open rhinoplasty, an incision is made across the small area of column separating the nostrils; incisions are kept within the nostrils during closed rhinoplasty. Either approach allows Dr. Guyuron to remove or reshape cartilage, smooth out existing bumps, or make other modifications to the nasal structure. Dr. Guyuron also offers a procedure called septoplasty to correct a deviated nasal septum. The septum is the partition in the middle of the nose made of cartilage and bone that evenly divides the nose. This structure is typically straight, but when it is genetically malformed or deviates due to trauma or injury, the septum blocks the nasal passage, causing problems such as difficulty breathing, sinus headaches and congestion, nosebleeds, snoring and sleep apnea. Septoplasty involves correcting a deviated septum by removing or reshaping the deviated cartilage and bone. The procedure is often considered medically necessary, so many insurance providers will cover the cost. Additionally, a deviated septum that is abnormally in contact with other nose structures can result in migraine headaches: straightening the septum can take away or reduce these behind-the-eye migraine headaches. Individuals with a deviated septum may also have a crooked nose. When a patient suffers from both a deviated septum and crooked nose, a combined procedure of septorhinoplasty can be used to correct both conditions simultaneously. Rhinoplasty recovery is gradual. While it can take a year for the swelling to resolve and the final results of the procedure to appear, most patients are able to enjoy their new look within the first few weeks of recovery. Dr. Bahman Guyuron has nearly four decades of experience in the field of facial plastic surgery for individuals with aesthetic and reconstructive needs. To learn more about these and other options for improving the appearance of the nose, contact Zeeba Clinic at 440-461-7999.

FROM THE EDITOR

Celebrating a century n recent years, some of Northeast Ohio’s most high-profile institutions have marked 100th anniversaries, among them The City Club of Cleveland (2012), The Cleveland Foundation (2014), Cleveland Museum of Art (2016) and The Cleveland Orchestra (2018). Institutions don’t last that long without making a difference and each of these has been integral in shaping our region both civically and culturally for a century. This year, another important and impactful organization marks that milestone: The Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association, which since 1919 has matched mentoring adults with Jewish children in ways that improve the lives of those involved and strengthen the community. In this issue of Jstyle, we joined JBBBSA’s celebration by inviting Bigs and Littles to serve as volunteer models for our spring fashion photo shoot at the Great Lakes Science Center and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (formerly Quicken Loans Arena). It was a great experience. For me, the most rewarding part was the opportunity to see the strong bonds between Bigs and Littles in action – a microcosm of the meaningful connections forged by JBBBSA throughout the community for years, which

perhaps you’ve seen for yourself, too. Also in this issue, in addition to celebrating longevity, we introduce you to what’s new in Northeast Ohio. For starters, we visited Heritage Lake Farm in Troy Township, where a Shaker Heights couple produces Mike’s Maple, a syrup that earlier this year was the first in Ohio to be kosher certified. We also stopped by a gathering of the Cleveland Kosher Cookbook Club, a new group in which women are connecting over creative kosher cooking. We also tour 4th & Park, the relatively new luxury apartment building at Pinecrest in Orange, and chat with residents who say the modern amenities and access to shopping and dining the residence offers made it the right choice for them.

Lastly, we check in with a handful of Jewish female business owners whose shops and services, sort of like Jstyle, seek to meet the community’s fashion and décor needs. As that story came together, I couldn’t help but recall an article I photographed for the winter 2013 issue of Jstyle, “Style sense,” that focused on Rae and Jack Phillips, who from 1956 to 1996 owned and operated Rae Phillips Inc. clothing stores on the East Side. Personalized service was important to Rae Phillips – just as it is to the women we spoke to for this issue’s story. And who knows, with good fortune – and the passing down of their work to future generations – perhaps these women’s businesses will all celebrate 100-year anniversaries.

Little by little, a big impact The Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association has long made a difference in Northeast Ohio’s Jewish community by forging meaningful, enduring connections between its adult Bigs and younger Littles. This year, the organization celebrates its 100th anniversary, and to mark that milestone, Jstyle invited men, women, boys and girls involved in the program to model and take over our spring fashion shoot. In doing so, we visited the Great Lakes Science Center in downtown Cleveland, the site of many enjoyable and educational outings for Bigs and Littles over the years, as well as Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (formerly Quicken Loans Arena), where we were given a behind-the-scenes look at the set-up for a rock ‘n’ roll concert. In this issue, not only will you get a look at the latest spring fashion trends, you’ll get a glimpse at what’s made the Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association so special for an entire century.

I was a Little, now I’m a Big, and it’s played an unbelievable part in my life. It keeps you grounded. In a crazy world of work and everything else going on in life, it’s a reminder of simple things and what’s really important in life. What do you like best about being matched with Nathan? His ability to make people laugh and really make you forget about any kind of issues. Is there anything you’ve pulled from being a “little” yourself that, as a Big, you’re able to share with Nathan? I have the good fortune to still be in touch with my Big, so I get advice from him from time to time. If there’s a situation or conversation we’re having, I’m able to pull from him. He’s a great resource to have.

Alina Litwack What do you like best about JBBBSA? I love the opportunity to get involved in the community and meet someone amazing, just like Lexi. It’s just so fun to hang out, and she’s just an amazing person. So, it’s really fun to go out and explore Cleveland since I’m new. Coming into Cleveland, she’s showing me around to all the fun things we can do. What do you like best about being matched with Lexi? Lexi is an amazing person as a whole. She’s so caring and amazing at what she does, and so generous. She’s able to have a lot of fun in what she does and is her own individual person – and I love that.

Barry Gabel

What do you like best about JBBBSA? Definitely the relationship Barry and I have developed. He’s served as a very positive male influence in my life and exposed me to so many cool things, but really, it’s just the relationship we’ve built over the last 16 years.

What do you like best about JBBBSA? For me, the best part is learning about myself as well as being a mentor for the kids I’ve been matched with. People say there’s never enough time in the day to volunteer, and I combat that by saying “that’s all you have is time.” Everybody can give financially, but there’s something that’s incredibly rewarding about giving your time, especially having a friendship from a young age to where now kids are older and we still maintain a friendship.

What do you like best about being matched with Barry? Barry is just an awesome guy. He’s super-kind, superfriendly, inviting and he’s always encouraging me to try new things.

What do you like best about being matched with Harry? We’re a lot alike. Being able to impart some of my hobbies and things that I like, and I can see that sharing music and sharing sports – things that I like, as well as work – it’s very interesting to see him become more involved and interested in some of those things. And just, quite honestly, spending time and getting to know somebody is really the most rewarding thing I like about Harry. You mentioned you had another Little. I was matched years ago, in 1985, with my first “little brother.” His name is David Roth. He’s now 38, has two kids and lives in Houston. We speak to one another once a month. Interestingly enough, Jessica (Jstyle fashion coordinator Jessica Simon), it’s her grandfather – Dan Innenberg – who matched me with David. So, it’s been great, not only being involved with these two kids, but seeing the entire organization and how the Bigs and Littles progress through the years.

LITTLE BY LITTLE Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association Cleveland’s Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Association is one of the 13 founding Big Brothers Big Sisters associations in the country. Only seven of those charter 13 remain today, and of those, only three are Jewish: Cleveland, Boston and Los Angeles. It all started at the Euclid Avenue Temple in Cleveland, where congregants concerned over juvenile delinquency in the wake of World War I formed the Jewish Big Brother Association of Cleveland as an organization independent of the temple. In 1928, the group joined the Jewish Family Service Association, maintaining its independent status in the process, and in 1948, both it and NCJW/Cleveland’s Jewish Big Sister Association became affiliated with the Jewish Children’s Bureau. In 2010, JBBBSA officially merged with Bellefaire JCB. JBBBSA Director Jill Sadowsky estimates “thousands” of Littles, young men and women who are matched with adult Bigs who serve as consistent and caring role models, have been mentored over the years. According to JBBBSA, research shows any child – whether from a single-parent home, two-parent home, an immigrant family or nativeto-Northeast-Ohio family – can benefit from having an additional supportive role model in their life. “Our program for 100 years has offered a unique, special match to Jewish families across the area,” Sadowsky says. “We have current Bigs going to the weddings of their

Littles, (and) on our 100 Year Committee of 20 involved members, we have people who have been involved since the ’40s. Our program gives Jewish families support in raising their children and provides our volunteers an opportunity to live the value of tikkun olam (repair the world).” Currently, JBBBSA has 55 active matches – but countless bonds remain active between Bigs and Littles well after their formal involvement in the program ends. It’s expected those longterm relationships will be on full display during the JBBBSA 100th Anniversary Family Reunion from 1 to 4 p.m. May 5 at Bellefaire JCB in Shaker Heights. In addition to marking the program’s milestone anniversary, the event will feature the presentation of the Oscar Steiner Award, named after JBBBSA’s first president and presented to individuals whose vision and commitment to children have enabled the organization to enrich the lives of both children and volunteers; the annual celebration of Bigs of the Year; the acknowledgment of special volunteer anniversaries; music and entertainment from Rock the House; and a barbecue picnic from Café 56.

BEAUTY

Pretty in pastel By Becky Raspe Spring is here, and along with it comes flowers, warm breezes and sunshine. Makeup trends point toward incorporating floral pastels to capitalize on those spring vibes, while for hair, accessories can add floral touches and fun colors. Or, keep things simple while also playing up the romantic feeling of springtime by incorporating soft waves into your hairstyle. Either way, spring is a season to freshen your look.

Seeing green By Becky Raspe After a long and cold winter, fashion suggests the grass is greener on the other side. With spring in full bloom, menswear trends are leaning fresh, casual and crisp by incorporating green into every aspect of a look. Pair greens with blues, browns and teals. It doesn’t hurt to add a pattern or two, too.

BUSINESS -

savvy SISTERHOOD

Jewish women who operate fashion, décor and design firms join a proud lineage of such business owners in Northeast Ohio

Story by Alyssa Schmitt Photography by Michael C. Butz

R

unning a business can get messy. Keren Himmel and Jaclyn Heller learned this in the infancy of their own business, H&H Revived, a Solonbased interior design firm. In those early days, as they painted furniture, their children sometimes ran around covered in various colors. They joked they lived in chaos. When Himmel and Heller opened H&H Revived in August 2015, they became part of a decades-old tradition of Jewish women in Northeast Ohio who turned their idea for a decor, design or fashion business into a reality. While their beginnings in business differ, a theme of thriving through hectic times and growing pains threads through many of their narratives. What they also share is a sense of community – of camaraderie amid potential competition, often seeking advice from each other or those who have gone before them.

Fostering family dynamics Audrey Bergrin’s days in retail reach back to childhood, when she worked for her father, who sold kosher and kosherstyle meats. She had always worked for someone else – until, that is, she opened her own store, Audrey’s Sweet Threads. As a child, Bergrin wanted to wear upscale clothes, so she worked multiple jobs to afford them. At the time, she painted purses, tops and murals, and in the process, discovered her love of dressing other women. “It became a point that I wanted to make an income and I had seen people with stores and decided I would like to do that, and did it,” she says. As with most everything, that was easier said than done. To start her business, she went to the Chicago Apparel Mart, a clothing trade show in Chicago, and acted like she knew what she was doing as a buyer. She admits, however, she didn’t know much at the time. “I really just thought that if you just kind of sound like you know what you’re doing, you can get into different showrooms and see if they would possibly sell you

something to be able to start your own business,” she says. Apparently, though, she said the right things because she was able to start buying a small inventory of clothing to set up shop in her basement. Fast-forward to 2019, and in addition to Audrey’s Sweet Threads, which specializes in casual wear, Bergrin owns Audrey’s, which opened in April 2018 and focuses on women’s formal wear. Both are at Eton Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere. Though online shopping has risen to the forefront, Bergrin opts out of selling online in an effort to offer customers a more personalized experience. “We’re small enough to give them a different look and a different identity,” she says. “We do try to keep it where we know our customers and know their needs. ... I know that the people who shop with me really enjoy seeing (themselves) as individuals rather than seeing (the clothes they buy) on every Tom, Dick and Harry.” Growing up, Bergrin looked through the windows of My Darling Daughter in Shaker Heights and Donna Lee at Cedar Center but never entered because her mother didn’t share her interest in clothing. However, she saw other motherdaughter duos going into stores and shopping together and was inspired to create something similar in her stores. “I wanted to be able to go into a small shop and do that type of shopping,” says Bergrin, a member of The Temple-Tifereth Israel in Beachwood. “I wasn’t able to at the time and I think it inspired me. I see a lot of mothers and daughters shopping in my store now and it reminds me of what I would have liked.”

Forging community connections Similar mother-daughter pairs can be found perusing the eclectic offerings at Double Rainbow, a lifestyle and clothing boutique for girls in Shaker Heights’ Van Aken District. About four years ago, a thought popped into owner Meg Ratner’s head: What was she going to do once her children were grown? She had been a stay-at-home mom for about 11 years and wanted to rejoin the workforce. Owning her own business had always

been an appealing idea, so she started to research it. “I started to talk to as many people as I could who have businesses of their own ... and just get a sense for what it takes to run a business and everything you need to do beforehand,” she says. In October 2018, she took the plunge and opened her store. Ratner aims to offer items girls can’t find elsewhere in Northeast Ohio. The inventory ranges from stylish eating utensils and food trays to fashionable clothes and garb sporting pop culture references to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In the early going, owning a store has grown into both a family affair and balancing act. “It’s been a big change for me because I haven’t worked since my kids were born,” she says. “My approach has been really trying to manage my time between my family and my store, which means having help at the store and trying to include my family in the business process.” Even after getting in the groove of running a business, issues can arise. To relieve the stress and make her feel like she’s not alone, Ratner talks with other female business owners. “I think it’s just good to know that there are other people out there sort of going through the same thing you are, because it is a lot to manage as a woman,” says Ratner, a congregant at Park Synagogue in Cleveland Heights and Pepper Pike. “I feel no matter what, ultimately kids by default go to the mom for everything, so

we’re all sort of juggling our personal life, our family life, our business life. So, it’s nice to be able to get together. ... It sort of helps you push through when you’re second guessing how much you’ve overcommitted yourself.”

Learning from female leaders Isabel Pritchett, owner of Sanity in Chagrin Falls, may have gotten into the retail game later than Bergrin, but she was on the same track, just a different style. Pritchett opened her clothing boutique in 2008 with her husband, Kevin. She had been working in retail since her teenage years. The idea of owning her own store was always in the back of her mind, though it was not what her parents had in mind. “(My parents) came straight from Russia and they wanted me to be a doctor or a lawyer, and I just knew in my heart that was not what I was meant to do,” she says. “Since the day I could work, basically when I was 15 or 16 years old, I got my first retail job and I had always worked in retail and I always found so much value in that customer connection and customer service.” Opening during the recession in 2008 was daunting – and resulted in a quick price drop throughout Sanity’s inventory – but Pritchett was determined to make it work. For two years, it was she and her husband who worked at the store every day of the week. Pritchett’s early years working in retail allowed her to see how various female

general managers could lead a store, a collection of perspectives that serves as a valuable resource in her current role. She describes all of those managers as strong

women who knew how to pick up the slack and make it look effortless. “They definitely had stuff going on in their lives, but they just put that all aside

and made their job their priority,” she says. “We all have stuff that goes on in our lives, but when it comes to our customers, they come here for a great experience. So, anything that’s kind of personal, even all my (employees), I tell them you just leave it at the door.” Following those first couple of recession-riddled years, Pritchett fully took over running the store while her husband opened another business. In so doing, she has relied on employees not only to handle front-of-house matters with customers but also to assist in marketing, social media and staying in contact with customers through newsletters.

Himmel and Heller met about six years ago, when their sons were in preschool at Park Synagogue. The boys became inseparable – as did the mothers once they realized their shared artistic nature. Both had recently bought new houses and were slowly buying furniture and redesigning parts, so they often talked about their projects, which led them to taking a class on painting furniture at White Magnolia Boutique in Chagrin Falls. “We just started accumulating furniture,” Himmel says. “We kind of realized we had a thing going and we started working out of my dad’s garage.” Their work would sell at White Magnolia, and soon thereafter, customers started asking them to repaint dining room sets. That then led to customers asking about lighting fixtures and the pair opening an account with Cleveland Lighting in Lyndhurst, which in turn led them to gaining a business license to be able to resell those lighting fixtures. “It just started to turn into repeat clients asking us to design or do a room, and it just kept snowballing and snowballing. Now, we’re literally gutting a kitchen, moving it to a different place and adding additions,” Himmel says. “We don’t even paint that much anymore because we’re so busy with the interior design,” says Heller, adding they will paint a piece of furniture to fit the style of a room.

Preparing to be successful Tamar Brecher and Robin McCann met while volunteering at the Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School in Beachwood, where their children go to school. Through a shared love of spreadsheets and a desire to open up a store that would offer unique items not found in other stores in the area, the pair set out to open Luster, a gift boutique that opened in December 2018 in Shaker Heights’ Van Aken District. “When we go to a show or find an artist on Etsy or Instagram, one of the first questions we ask is, ‘Who are you selling to?’” Brecher says. “We really try to make an effort to not overlap. It has happened – we’ve gotten stuff in and we’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, this store has this’ – so we sell out of it and move on.” Luster offers items ranging from home goods and bath products to statement jewelry, accessories and handbags. One of Brecher and McCann’s goals was to build a place where other working women and mothers could cover all of their giftpurchasing needs. Balance is also important – a lesson Brecher learned from an early age. Growing up, she spent time in the nail salon where her mother ran a jewelry shop with her close friend in White Plains, N.Y. On occasion, Brecher would accompany them to Manhattan to purchase jewelry for their shop. Even while running a business, Brecher’s mother was always at home when she was needed and figured out the work-life balance, something Brecher and McCann say they’ve been able to achieve through their own business. Though Luster only recently opened, preparation began two years prior. Brecher and McCann went through three accounting boot camp sessions to learn how to do their own bookkeeping, took entrepreneurial classes at Bad Girl Ventures, an organization that enables women to start and sustain businesses by providing resources that has since turned into Aviatra Accelerators, and joined the Women Business Center of Ohio in Cleveland. “We were so careful and deliberate and slow in building it and making sure

we were educated on every piece of this business before the doors opened,” McCann says. “There’s nothing about this that we took lightly, even down to

interviewing architects (for the store’s design). ... We really worked hard to truly educate ourselves on every single aspect of this store.” js

and restaurateurs in Northeast Ohio Compiled by Michael C. Butz

Brunch pies from newly opened Ohio Pie Co. in Brunswick feature everything crusts.

First time for everything

Fans of everything bagels may want to head to one of Northeast Ohio’s newest pizza shops. Ohio Pie Co.’s weekend brunch menu features a variety of “brunch pies” all made with the shop’s signature “everything” crust and a cream cheese white sauce. Interested eaters will need to plan ahead to savor the flavor. Brunch pies are available exclusively from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays and Sundays at the Brunswick pizza shop. Ohio Pie Co., which founder Nick Robson and business partner Aaron Sechrist opened March 14 (“Pi Day”), also is home to The Original Ohio Style Pizza. Robson, who devised the Ohiostyle pie, describes it as consisting of a “simple and sturdy crust made daily that’s built to handle cheese and toppings that run right to the edge” as well as “a signature sauce swirl and square cut that ensures no two slices or bites are the same,” according to Ohio Pie Co.’s website.

T-shirt time

Northeast Ohio’s T-shirt industry is booming – proof of which can be found by attending any area sporting event. But a relatively new T-shirt has nothing to do with sports and everything to do with arguably the most famous Jewish food. Bialy’s Bagels partnered with Lakewood-based GV Artwork to design a Bialy’s-themed shirt. The resulting blue T-shirt depicts a schmear-covered bagel encircled by the punny slogan “Where two halves make a hole.”“Bialy’s Bagels” is spelled out in the schmear, and the bagel’s hole is in the shape of Ohio. See it at @bialysbagels on Instagram. Bialy’s owners Rachel and Sarah Gross say that, at least for now, the T-shirts are available only at the Bialy’s bricks-andmortar store in University Heights.

Beard’s loss

Larder: A Curated Delicatessen and Bakery, the Ohio City eatery that offers modern, creative takes on classic comfort food, was named a semifinalist for the Best New Restaurant category for the James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards in February. In March, however, Larder – led by Jeremy Umansky, Allie La ValleUmansky and Kenny Scott – was not among the finalists. While it’s undoubtedly an honor to be recognized, Greater Clevelanders who’ve eaten at Larder know it was worthy of advancing. This marks the second time in recent years a Jewish restaurateur from Northeast Ohio was overlooked by the James Beard Foundation. In 2016, Zack Bruell was named a semifinalist in the “Best Chef: Great Lakes” category for Parallax but didn’t advance as a finalist.

FIRST COURSE

Story by Ed Carroll Photography by Michael C. Butz

In pursuing a dream, Mike and Marilyn Gardner have introduced koshercertified maple syrup to Ohio 44

M

ike and Marilyn Gardner bought the farm in 2001 and now find themselves in a sticky situation. Literally. The Shaker Heights couple purchased Heritage Lake Farm, a 100-acre plot in Geauga County’s Troy Township, mostly as an investment but also out of a shared love for nature. An attorney by day, Mike Gardner is also a botanist. As for their sticky situation, it’s also a sweet one. In 2018, the couple began producing and bottling Mike’s Maple, their own brand of maple syrup tapped and boiled on their farm. Earlier this year, Mike’s Maple earned a distinction fairly unique to maple syrup: kosher certification. Courtesy of Cleveland Kosher, the certification makes the Gardners, congregants of The TempleTifereth Israel in Beachwood, the

first – and thus far, only – kosher maple syrup producer in Ohio. Though it took 16 years for their syrup-producing goal to be realized, Mike Gardner saw the farm’s potential right away. “One of the first things I did, even before I bought it, was bring out a forester to evaluate the woodlands for maple syrup production, because I recognized the potential then,” he said. “Then I had the woods harvested, but we didn’t take out the maple trees.” Three years ago, the Gardners installed a tubing system into their sugar bushes on an experimental basis to see how much sap they could produce and whether syruping would be viable. The sap produced that year was sold to other syrup producers. The following year, they built a sugar house intending

to produce their own syrup, however, the building wasn’t finished until late in syruping season. So, February 2018 was when the couple first started actually producing syrup. “We’re kind of newbies,” Gardner admits.

From tree to table For the Gardners, syruping season begins by tapping the trees and installing their tubing system’s vials. This year, they began the first week of February, ahead of when

the weather first warmed up. When temperatures rise above freezing for an extended period of time, they can turn on their vacuum pump to extract sap from trees. Once the sap is flowing, it travels through an intricate network of tubes that zig-zags between trees to a pump house, and from there, an underground pipeline system delivers it to the couple’s sugar house. Mike Gardner says the sugar house can store approximately 1,100 gallons, and an additional 1,650 gallons can be stored outside. Due to the low amount of storage space, the couple begins boiling the sap shortly after storing it. “Initially, if we get 500 gallons, we’ll start boiling, because the sap is continuing to (accumulate),” he says.

FIRST COURSE The storage tanks are elevated and the sap transferred to the evaporator the old-fashioned way: by using gravity. The Gardners admitted they didn’t know anything about making maple syrup when they started, and as a result, they teamed up with a neighboring Amish sugar maker, Samuel E. Miller, to help make Mike’s Maple. Miller helped the Gardners finish the instillation and harvest the sap the first year and has stayed on to help ever since.

Keeping it kosher Due to the steep learning curve, the Gardners had no marketing plan for their syrup, at least initially. In 2018, the couple made 350 gallons of syrup, 270 gallons of which they sold wholesale. The remaining 80 gallons were used to gauge interest at the retail level. “The market is fairly wellcovered, so we had to find new outlets somehow,” Gardner says. “After we got the first season under our belts and some comfort in how much we were able to produce, and (with) the ability to do some planning, we decided to see if we could get it kosher certified and offer it up to the observant community.” Neither Mike nor Marilyn Gardner observe kosher dietary laws themselves, so they spoke with Malka Rosenberg, owner of Unger’s Kosher Bakery in Cleveland Heights, and noticed she carried maple syrup from New York. Rosenberg suggested they connect with Cleveland Kosher for certification for Mike’s Maple. However, due to how late in the season it was when they contacted Cleveland Kosher, they weren’t able to get certification until earlier this year, when the rabbi observed their entire syrupmaking process.

Spring 2019

There’s some debate among kosher-keepers as to whether 100 percent pure maple syrup even needs kosher certification, given that all of the ingredients come from plants or the maple tree itself. However, in the finishing process, the syrup has a tendency to foam up and boil over the pans, which creates a sticky mess, and if one isn’t careful, can become a fire hazard due to the heat involved. The Amish have long gotten around this issue by using either milk or animal fat to contain the foam as an anti-foaming agent, but using either would mean the syrup isn’t kosher. To get around this conundrum, the Gardners use a kosher antifoaming agent made largely of ground seashells. “We’re trying to expand our market, and it makes sense to us that if we’re sharing this delicious product with a non-kosher market, why wouldn’t we want to share it with the kosher market as well?” Marylin Gardner says. “I guess we feel it’s a gift and everybody is deserving of being able to have some. Not only was it a great market to tap, but we wanted to share the wealth, so to speak.”

Above: The tubing system the Gardners use to extract and transport sap zig-zags through their farm’s trees. Below: Amish sugar maker Samuel E. Miller looks on as Rabbi Shimon Gutman, of Cleveland Kosher, inspects Heritage Lake Farm’s maple syrup-making process for kosher certification.

Expanding the market Now that the first batch of Mike’s Maple is out the door, the couple is trying to change the perception of how people use syrup. Marylin Gardner points out that syrup is a lot more versatile than most think. For example, she recently used the syrup to make a sweet-tasting shaved-ice treat. “I think the typical thinking is its used primarily for breakfast foods; waffles, pancakes and French toast,” she says. “But now, it’s being used in balsamic vinegars, in different kinds of

Mike Gardner

alcoholic beverages (and) in sauces. “There’s so many uses people aren’t aware of.” Mike Gardner notes that maple syrup is a “wonderful, allnatural sweetener,” as people will put it in smoothies, baked goods and even in ice cream.

“There’s a variety of alternative uses people don’t traditionally think of,” he says. “That’s part of the marketing plan, to expand the market by increasing people’s knowledge of how (maple syrup) can be used – not just as pancake syrup.” js

Where to find Mike’s Maple

The Gardners say Mike’s Maple is available at places like Corky and Lenny’s, Davis Bakery, Juma Gallery and Luna Bakery & Cafe. For a complete list of Northeast Ohio stores and restaurants at which Mike’s Maple can be found, visit jstylemagazine.com/simply-syrup.

for the 16 women stopping by her Beachwood home to share an abundant feast and warm camaraderie. Each guest brings her rendition of a recipe by Tieghan Gerard, a native Northeast Ohioan who’s author of both a blog and cookbook titled “Half Baked Harvest.” The women gather around the table and introduce their creation, explaining

the alterations, adaptations and surprises entailed in making the recipes, like whether the love-it-or-hate-it herb cilantro was left in or taken out. Conversations are animated. The room buzzes as people catch up with old friends and newcomers are embraced by members of the group. This may sound like your typical potluck, but in many ways, it isn’t.

This is the Cleveland Kosher Cookbook Club, a group that is by and for women. Some know each other; others don’t. What group members generally have in common are a passion for cooking, a desire to expand their horizons in the kosher kitchen and a willingness to meet new people who share their interests and lifestyle.

First taste Operating as a Facebook group and consisting of about 125 members, the Cleveland Kosher Cookbook Club describes itself as “a group of friends (who) all make recipes from the same cookbook and gather to share the results, a crowdsourced feast.” It was co-founded in 2018 by Shoshana Socher of Beachwood and Navah Amar of University Heights. Amar learned of the idea from a cousin in Brooklyn, N.Y., who started a group there after reading about the concept online. “She added me to her Facebook group,” Amar says. “I mimicked it here.” Amar and Socher worked together to get the group, which meets monthly, up and running. Per standard kashrut guidelines, meals are set up in advance to be either dairy or meat, thus far alternating between the two every month. Each time a different person offers her home as a setting. That entails offering a beautifully set table. By design, the hostess doesn’t cook. Using Perfect Potluck software, people sign up for an appetizer, entrée or other dish on the Facebook site on a first-come, first-served basis. When the number of people interested exceeds the number of potential place settings at the hostess’ table, a wait list forms. The Cleveland Kosher Cookbook Club’s first meal in November was a meat meal. The women cooked recipes by Busy in Brooklyn blogger Chanie Apfelbaum, who had just released her cookbook, “Millennial Kosher.” Amar counts the first gathering as her favorite. “It was so new for everyone,” she says. “It was so exciting, and the food was delicious. So, that was definitely my favorite in terms of the overall event.”

December’s was a dairy meal, using recipes from Deb Perelman’s “The Smitten Kitchen.” For January, recipes of prizewinning Israeli chef and cookbook author Yotam Ottolenghi were used. “Literally every dish was so delicious,” Amar recalls. “It was very different. It was a very fun twist to have very Mediterranean/Israeli style.” Socher concurs. “I think our very top was the Yotam Ottolenghi (meal),” she says. Jeanine Donofrio and Jack Mathews’ “Love & Lemons” was the source of recipes for February’s dairy meal.

Food and friends The March gathering was Cleveland Kosher Cookbook Club’s fifth. For the first time, the founders polled members as to which blogger or cookbook author they wanted to use. Gerard’s “Half Baked Harvest” won. Gerard is not a kosher cook, so many of the recipes needed to be adapted. Sarah Braun, who blogs about kosher food as The Rustic Maidel “on the side,” proposed Gerard. “Without thinking about it, you could creatively adapt (one of Gerard’s recipes)

Kosher doesn’t have to be brisket and kugel.” She made oven-fried Korean popcorn chicken for the March dinner. The recipe called for dipping the chicken in buttermilk, so she used a nut-based milk instead. Braun also enjoys the camaraderie of the group.

“It’s fun, social,” she says. “It’s a mixed group of people. It’s really like women from all the shuls, the different schools. It’s fun. That’s why I keep going back.” Braun speaks of Cleveland’s limited number of kosher restaurants as a source of frustration and creativity. “We love cooking. We host our own parties. We have a smoker. We smoke our own meats,” she says. “It’s tough here, and the community’s grown so much.”

Newcomers welcome Ellie Berlin joined for her first time in March. While she had known about the group and knows both co-founders,

previous meetings conflicted with her schedule. “It looked so appealing,” says the Beachwood resident who attends the Waxman Chabad Center. “I love to cook when it’s not under pressure,” she says. “I usually just cook because food needs to be eaten. It’ll be nice to try a bunch of new things that maybe I can add to my repertoire. … I like that there’s no actual agenda other than eating and socializing.” Berlin is married and has three children ages 2 to 7 years old. For the dinner, she made a double recipe of her contribution – veggie spring rolls with a mango dipping sauce – partly to share with her husband. She planned to tuck her children in before going to the 7:30 p.m. event. After that, she says, “It’s in his hands.” Another first-time participant, Gill Wolovitz, made sweet potato bisque with sage pesto and cashew “cheese.” The dish received rave reviews, and she fielded questions about how she made both the soup and the cheese. Wolowitz, who is originally from Cape Town, South Africa, grew up in an Orthodox home and now eats an entirely plant-based, whole-foods diet. “It’s so lovely to be here,” says the Cleveland Heights resident and member of Congregation Shomre Shabbos in Cleveland Heights. “There were certain things I could eat.” After the meal, Berlin says the experience lived up to her expectations. “This was awesome,” she says. “I’m very full and satisfied. This was fun.” Hostess Setnik, who attends Heights Jewish Center in Cleveland Heights and Jewish Family Experience in Beachwood, looks forward to meeting new attendees. “It’s different people each time,” she says. “There’s so many new people in Cleveland now, (and) I love to make new friends.” js

room director at the long-shuttered Mount Sinai Hospital in Cleveland. They moved into 4th & Park in August after selling their Pepper Pike home to the first person who saw it the day it went on the market. The couple was tired of home maintenance, the three children they raised over two marriages were long gone and they were eager to see more of the sky. “We talked about selling for two years, and when these (apartments) started to be built, we read about the development,” Laura says. “I said I wanted to look here. Then, when I learned it was going to have a bowling alley, a theater, all the restaurants

(and) all the retail, I really started to investigate.” The Brookses, who attend The Temple-Tifereth Israel in Beachwood, checked out other residential opportunities in the area, particularly around Beachwood Place, but even there, they would have had to get in a car and drive for shopping, let alone for entertainment and dining. At 4th & Park, all those are a walk away. Besides the diversity of Pinecrest – in offerings as well as demographics – what ultimately prompted their move was “location, location, location,” Laura says. “I wanted to be in a vibrant neighborhood, I wanted to see the

Dennis enjoys the monthly community get-togethers, while Laura likes the entertainment and culinary offerings. “I just walk out and it’s all there,” she said. Just the other day, she walked across the street to a furniture store, bought two chairs, “and they delivered them.” The chairs are a welcome addition to a newly compact home in which comfortable, vintage furniture and carpeting easily coexist with state-ofthe-art appliances, and the kitchen and living room are a continuous, flowing space. At the same time, downsizing has had its challenges. “I’ve learned that you have to get accustomed to living in an apartment again,” Laura says. Dennis, meanwhile, likes his new environment but wishes for a few more conveniences, like a men’s store, pharmacy and dry cleaner’s. And there’s much less space. “It’s good,” Laura says of their new living quarters. “It’s bad,” Dennis quips. “I can’t have a man cave.” Despite that man cave deficiency, residents of 4th & Park enjoy a community room with a fireplace and bar, a “Bark Park” for their canine occupants, a state-of-theart fitness center, outdoor grills, on-site management

and numerous shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. Shopping spans Eye Candy Optical, Apricot Lane Boutique and REI Co-op. Graeter’s Ice Cream, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and Pinstripes Bistro are some of the dining options, and entertainment comes courtesy of the highend Silverspot Cinema.

his Pinecrest residence as a second home and retains a primary dwelling in Medina. Because he’s a temporary executive, he often finds himself occupying a rental for an amount of time determined by the contract he signs with a company. He has just completed a year’s work as a senior executive with Park-Ohio Holdings Co., a publicly traded international manufacturing firm with offices in Mayfield Heights, and he needed a place nearby. Driving home to Medina at the end of a busy day was not something he looked forward to. Over the past few years, “like all of us,” he watched Pinecrest come into being. Its location near major highways appealed to him, prompting him to lease his own two-bedroom, twobath, third-floor apartment. “There’s a certain type of energy there,” he says of 4th & Park, which he called a special type of community. While it appeals to empty nesters like the Brookses and

temporary executives like Cohen, “you get all kinds of people,” Cohen said. Pets, too. The dog park at the rear of the complex is a major draw. “It’s an upscale apartment complex, and because of that, they have a competitive rate, but it’s not inexpensive,” said Cohen, a member of the Shul Boys Motorcycle Club and of the board of trustees and executive committee at B’nai Jeshurun Congregation in Pepper Pike. “It’s not for somebody who has trouble making payments.” As of the end of March, monthly rental costs for one-bedroom units started at $1,808; two-bedroom units at $2,205; and threebedrooms at $3,407. There are 36 one-bedroom apartments, 45 two-bedroom apartment and six three-bedroom units. Respective starting sizes are 882 square feet; 1,207 square feet; and 1,586 square feet, according to Mary Wojtila, residential property manager. Cohen likes the attached heated garage, and like the

Brookses, calls management “just wonderful.” If there are any issues, he says, “staff helps you resolve any problem.”

No comparison So what sets 4th & Park apart? What distinguishes it from other, similarly appointed and amenitied upscale apartment complexes? Adam Fishman, principal with Fairmount Properties, may have the answer. “A big part of what’s different about 4th & Park is that these apartments – living spaces, really – are immersed in a true live-work-play environment,” Fishman says. “They’re right in the midst of a dozen different dining options, entertainment opportunities, shopping destinations.” This is not a typical apartment building situated in a “sea of asphalt” flanked by parking lots. “This is an entirely different option,” Fishman said. “This is living amongst a dozen different opportunities to dine, with a state-of-the-art Whole

Foods outside your front door.” There also is “a plethora” of fitness and wellness opportunities, including that fitness center in the 4th & Park building. The target market is young professionals and successful empty-nesters “who want to live in a vibrant environment and would appreciate and enjoy being part of this new way of living,” Fishman says. “It is being at a place where, if you wanted to, you would never have to get in your car to enjoy great entertainment, great shopping, exercise trails, a dog park.” It’s a walkable, self-contained environment. With more than 90 percent of its apartments leased since the 4th & Park building opened in June, “we’re just enjoying how positively the community is reacting to Pinecrest,” Fishman says. “We feel that our offering is so different that we don’t really directly compete with other traditional apartment developments.” js

Lux�r� vinyl is the biggest flooring t�end this spring, followed closely by the use of environmentally friendly products

By Shelbie Goulding

S

pring is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. For homeowners, that can take many shapes, from minor acts of spring cleaning to major room renovations. Spring is also when many houses are spruced up before being placed on the market, providing yet another reason home makeovers are top of mind this time of year.

Whatever the occasion might be, when new flooring is part of those remodeling plans, local experts – Matt Wien, director of sales at Marshall Carpet One & Rug Gallery in Mayfield Heights; Pat Antonelli, owner of Bella Stone in South Euclid; and Taylor Lavigna, interior designer at Calvetta Brothers Floor Show, which has locations in Bedford Heights, Northfield Center, Mentor and Westlake – say two clear trends have emerged: the use of vinyl and going green. “The two most popular types of flooring we’re seeing is the luxury vinyl flooring, which is the most popular in the industry right now, and also hardwood or hard surfaces with area surface rugs,” Wien says. Luxury vinyl flooring is popular in part because it mimics real materials, such as wood, tile or stone, but it’s also in demand due to its design. “It’s waterproof, scratch-resistant and easy to install,” Wien says. “It looks beautiful.” More people are starting to use vinyl throughout the house because of its

durability and hard surface, Wien says. However, carpet – especially eco-friendly carpet – remains popular for bedrooms and some living spaces. Though going green has been popular for years, only recently have customers become more aware of chemicals manufactured into carpets, which has prompted a shift toward using more environmentally safe materials. “We are the first flooring store to partner with Earth Weave in Cleveland,” he says. “The carpet is the most environmentally friendly carpet and safest for homes. It has the least amount of chemicals and is more natural.” Antonelli agrees that keeping the at-home environment safe means a lot to customers. He says the majority of Bella Stone’s brands – including its luxury vinyl flooring – are GREENGUARD certified, a data-based third-party certification that aims to give assurances that products designed for indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, according to its website.

As for that luxury vinyl flooring, Antonelli says his store sells more of it than anything else right now. “My suppliers just came in and took out a lot of ceramics and brought in so much new vinyl,” he says, noting that because of vinyl’s enhanced design, traditional tile and hardwoods aren’t selling as well. Antonelli says vinyl is versatile enough to function in a variety of rooms, adding another reason it’s a popular choice for residential use is because it snaps together, making the installation process easier and cheaper than installing tile. Also, it’s durable – a quality homeowners look for in order to save money on possible repairs and for easy clean-up. “If you drop stuff on porcelain or tile, it could chip, but this stuff is chip- and stain-resistant,” he says. Calvetta Brothers Floor Show’s Lavigna also sees the market for vinyl flooring booming. Specifically, many homeowners are putting wood-like vinyl in nearly every room of the house: the foyer, family room, kitchen, dining room, mudroom, bathrooms and laundry room. The only room where carpet seems to be safe is the bedroom.

ROOM SERVICE “The main trend here is using one product throughout your entire home,” she says. “Less floor is the better. You really don’t want to have four or five different floors that make up your home, ideally.” Lavigna notes that wellknown brands are aware of customers’ desire to go green in their flooring choices but thinks the trend may be waning. “A lot of companies, such as Shaw and Mohawk, are very aware of that and know that it’s important to people,” she says. “So, there are things that are LEED certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and going toward the green nature of things, but I don’t think it’s as popular as it once was. It is very popular in carpet.” Mohawk has a line called SmartStrand, which is corn-

based, environmentally friendly and recyclable. Shaw has recycled materials and reused items in its carpet. Wool is also a popular carpeting choice – and always has been. “You see a lot of people use wool for area rugs and even bedroom carpets,” Lavigna says. “They’re really beautiful and obviously ‘green’ due to the nature they are made of.” Another trend Lavigna has seen is that light-colored floors are in and grays are out. “Gray was super popular in the past 10 years. We’re starting to see that dissipate, and we’re really leaning toward taupe and beiges now,” she says. “Taupe is like the biggest color and most popular. Everything is starting to warm up a bit. The trends are forecasting to go more toward taupe.” js
