CHARLOTTESVILLE: Foodie Town with Banquets Fit for Gods

“E

at Like a Greek God” says Ambrosia’s sign at The Farmers Market in IX Park, but you can do better than that around here. Nectar and ambrosia are delicious, sure, but for every meal? Zeus and company never tried Ambrosia’s garlicky, yogurt and feta based Turokafteri spread, or Daniel Perry’s intriguing Strawberry + Sumac Jam. Sweet was the smell of a sacrificed bull, but more enticing is the aroma of Stella Turner’s fried chicken. Mortals, as it turns out, are exceptional cooks and concoction creators—clever, curious, and endlessly adventurous, as the Olympians would know if they went restaurant hopping and market wandering in today’s Charlottesville.

BY KEN WILSON cornbread and collard greens, her peach cobbler and pound cake. Turner opened Stella’s Cuisine in March of 2021, not the easiest time for a restaurant to establish itself—unless the food is really delicious. Stella’s obviously is. Raised in Charlottesville, she learned to cook from her mother and grandmother in a family where everyone wanted their turn at the stove. Later she worked in local restaurants. Now her own has survived the pandemic, in part through curbside pickup service. She hopes it will grow, with a bigger space and a larger clientele since she’s now on Grubhub. Customers can order online from the restaurant’s own site as well. Estimated wait time while Turner gets all the love in? Just 15 minutes.

The food scene in this town is well known and highly praised. Let’s sample some of the fantastic fare, and hear stories of the enthusiastic professional ‘foodies’ who make it for us.

Stella’s Cuisine Ask Stella Turner what makes her down home food so good and she’ll give you a simple answer: “I put love in it,” she says. “It’s from the heart.” Sure enough, you can taste that in the hot wings, the crispy fried whiting, and the mac and cheese she serves in York Place on the Downtown Mall. Further proof is in her

Umma’s Kelsey Naylor, one of the two chefowners at Umma’s on Water Street also grew up in the family kitchen and it shows in what she calls her new Korean restaurant. “Umma” is Korean for “mom “ or “mother,” and, Naylor says, is “kind of an homage to my mom and my grandmother,” immigrants from Korea when her mom was 15. “Between her and my grandmother is where I have a lot of my cooking foundation,” Naylor says. Nowadays her mother lives on a farm in Esmont, where she makes the restaurant’s kimchi and grows

most of its produce. Korean fans of her kimchi at the Market are coming to Umma’s now too, as are newly arrived Korean students at UVA. The rest of us have the opportunity to try dishes like Korean Fried Chicken and Pyeonyuk for perhaps the first time, on a menu that rotates roughly every two weeks based on what’s in season. The chicken is double fried and served with a choice of sauces, including Naylor’s own favorite, what she calls Santa sauce—“essentially a sweet onion and spicy gochujang blend.” Pyeonyuk is a version of Korean head cheese, made here with local pork and served with salt shrimp, Korean sesame sauce, and sesame leaves. Pickled fish and vegetables are staples at Umma’s, and the most popular thing on the menu right now is the fried rice and eel with a sweet soy glaze. The restaurant’s sizeable drinks list features no less than ten Japanese whiskies, along with a concoction Naylor and

Umma’s co-owner Anna Gardner found was the most popular bar drink during a year spent in Japan: Wine and Coke. “The signature of the drink,” Naylor will tell you, is “the cheapest red wine you get.” And at Umma’s a splash of Grenadine.

Nona’s Italian Cucina Speaking of grandmother, “Nona” is not how it’s spelled in Italian, as Yvonne Cunningham’s customers from the old country tell her. It needs another “n” after the “o.” But “Nona” is the moniker Cunningham’s teacher went by, the preferred name of the Naples grandmother who taught her to make the thick tomato sauce known there as “gravy.” Cunningham and her Navy husband chose to live off the naval base for their seven years in Naples, “and what a treat that was” she says today. But she and Nona didn’t speak each other’s language, “and the only way we communicated, was through an ltalianEnglish dictionary, and lots of hand

motions. I was in my mid-twenties and I didn’t really know how to cook, and she just took me under her wing and taught me how to make this amazing sauce that I produce today, along with pasta and bread and pizza dough and many other specialty sauces and Italian delicacies. The sauce is what my family and I took to, and what I cook every Sunday for my family dinner. I’ve been doing that for over 30 years.” Cunningham has sometimes offered lasagna roll-ups since she began selling online and on Saturday mornings in IX Park three years ago, but her small batch tomato sauce is the thing. And she knows what not to name it: “If I called it ‘gravy’ here in Virginia, people would be looking for grits and biscuits and sausage,” she notes wryly. “I did a lot of chatting with a lot of different food people and they were like, ‘I really don’t think it would be a good idea if you used gravy in any verbiage; people are going to be looking for breakfast!’” But as for “Nona’s,” without that third “n” please: “Now it’s kind of a conversation starter.”

Khadija’s Kitchen

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

The food Khadija Hemmati helps prepare at Marigold, Jean-Georges’ fabulous restaurant at Keswick Hall, is elegant and sophisticated with Southern, French and Asian touches. The beautiful dishes she makes on her own, sells online and at farmer’s markets, and caters to numerous groups around town, she calls authentic Afghan cuisine with an international twist. In this city with its diverse population and its avid homegrown foodies (with educated palates eager to explore new cuisines) Afghani cooking is right at home. The Boys and Girls Clubs here know Khadija’s Kitchen, and so do the

International Red Cross and UVA student associations. Born and raised in Afghanistan, Hemmati came to the U.S. with her children in 2016, dreaming of a better life—and she sure knew how to make it. She took ESL classes; she worked in a UVA cafeteria; and she studied farmers markets, opening her own booth in IX Park in 2018. Today the chicken kabobs and falafel are her most popular items, but the rice and lentils have their fans, and regulars know to expect a new dish now and then. One you can find online. Hemmati’s gholpi (cauliflower stewed with peppers, onions, tomato sauce, and a Persian spice blend called advieh,) can be ready in 25 minutes.

Althea Bread Stop into Althea Bread and you may leave with something that looks delicious and goes by the name KouignAmann—whatever that is. Kouign-Amann is actually an indulgence dreamed up in the northwest Brittany region of France: a cakey confection loaded with “caramelized sugar, local raspberries, crispy, buttery palmiers, and pumpkin cookies,” says Althea’s Susan Bayker. It is based on her wife and business partner Marian Bayker’s favorite childhood recipe. Marian began her baking career at Mudhouse in Crozet, then moved to Marie Bette in Charlottesville. As her curiosity and passion grew, she experimented with sourdough breads made from local grain she milled herself. Together the Baykers launched their microbakery in 2018 in southern Albemarle County, in a little rustic cabin they called Althea, selling what came out of the oven to friends, who spread the word. Soon they had a little bread delivery service. Today they bake breads and pastries on Henry Street in Charlottesville and offer them Saturdays mornings at the Farmers Market.

Real Estate Weekly THE

Freshly stoneground local and regional grains, natural sourdough leavening—even in the croissants!—and long fermentation times given Althea’s creations their complex character. “Our classic Country Sourdough is probably our bestselling bread,” Susan says. “We also make seeded and whole grain sourdough loaves, baguettes, and a very special sprouted rye loaf that we call Breakfast Bread, a hearty Danish style delight. We make a variety of pastries, including plain, chocolate, pretzel, and almond croissants.”

says. “The fruit in the strawberry, peach, apricot and cherry territory get overly sweet as a jam; so those guys like having something tangy, something floral, something herbaceous in there, to break up that sweetness and keep it from getting cloying.” Damson Plum is “a classic, old-fashioned preserving plum,” and a favorite of moonshiners. “It’s a little like if a Kalamata olive had the skin of a blueberry. It has a big stone in the middle and it’s really tannic and tangy. The jam is almost red winey.” Golden Shiro Plum Jam is seasoned with tumeric, ginger, and black pepper, a blend based on golden milk in Indian cuisine. “Yellow fruit lends itself to having a golden veneer put on it,” Perry says. His own ginger and tumeric is locally sourced.” And what’s his own favorite variety? “I really love the tart cherry and apricot.”

A Great Vibe

Jam According to Daniel Great bread loves great jam. Daniel Perry was with friends at college in Massachusetts in 2004, not far from a large farm, when someone suggested they go raspberry picking. “We put them into the soup pot and cooked them down to one jar of jam, and we’d do that a couple of days a week,” Perry recalls. When he came back home to Virginia that summer, he saw a classified ad in the daily newspaper—“Local jam maker looking for help; Kluge Estate”—got the job, and began learning the trade seriously. In the last 14 years, Perry has made as many as a 150 varieties a year, sourcing his fruit from local farms, where farm owners are happy to have him buy their surplus. Nowadays he’s settled on 60 to 75 flavors and makes 10 to 11 thousand jars a year, selling half at the farmers market, a quarter to specialty food stores, and a quarter by mail. Scan the names of Perry’s many successful experiments, and it’s hard to know what to try first. Strawberry + Sumac? Apricot + Calamondin? You can tell the guy’s a born inventor. “All the fruits have their own sweetness,” he

Talk to any chef, producer, or grower in these parts, and they’ll remark upon what a special place this is. “I love the fact that we’re in a centralized location with so many farms in the counties surrounding us,” Naylor says. Cunningham agrees: “I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’ve done with my sauce if we hadn’t moved to Charlottesville. That’s for sure. This is such a food-centric area. You wouldn’t think this is such a great area to grow because of the red clay. But the grapes love it, the hops love it, the wheat loves it, tomatoes love it, peppers love it, herbs love it—this is just a valley of food, this whole area.” But the privately-owned organic farms aren’t all that make it special here. So do the camaraderie and the cooperation. “The energy is so different from the toxic chef bro stuff that you hear about,” Perry notes. “It’s a really great vibe.” Yes, we foodies are awfully fortunate. We have banquets fit for gods with inquisitive appetites. We have professional foodies proud to honor their mothers and adopted grandmothers. The names alone are alluring. “Althea” is Greek for wholesome and healing; “Ambrosia” means “immortality.” Our bakers and chefs and sauce and “gravy” and condiment makers don’t promise eternity in an entree, but a mouthful tastes like heaven, and a bellyful may even produce enlightenment. Just try it. Who knows!
