GREAT HISTORY OF THE MEYER RANCH WYOMING (AEP) - When Bob Meyer came to the Montana Big Blackfoot River region in 1990, he ended his search for the perfect place to pursue his lifelong dream of returning to his agricultural roots by ranching. He settled in this region, steeped in ranching history, and successfully cultivated that history. Yet raising cattle for the future would also mean looking back to the “old-fashioned way.” After his arrival in the area Meyer bought property as it became available, piecing back together subdivided parcels and pursuing his goal of restoring a large segment of land. The result is Meyer Company Ranch-the largest working ranch in the valley consisting of 40,000 acres of ranch land. Though Meyer wanted to build a progressive ranch, he also wished to tap the historical roots of ranching in the area. Other links to the past are evident throughout the ranch. An old schoolhouse still stands on the former Wales’ property, as does the original log cabin homestead. The historic stagecoach road leading to Garnet passes through the ranch. A horse barn built in 1900 and granary built in 1910 are both still vital parts of the Meyer Company Ranch. Meyer’s working history on the land began in 1990, by establishing firm roots in Red Angus genetics, Meyer used the Meyer Company Ranch to build the foundation for an integrated natural beef program called Meyer Natural Angus, dedicated to raising Angus cattle without the use of added hormones or antibiotics. Quality has long been a sought-after goal in the ranching industry, but Meyer has stayed a step ahead of society’s growing concern over health and ethics in food production. The goal behind the Meyer Natural Angus and Meyer Company Ranch is to produce the highest quality, most consistent, natural beef available while addressing the public’s growing demand for additive-free beef and its desire to support environmentally friendly, humane growing practices. For over 18 years, Meyer slowly

carved out a niche for his company. Today, his companies produce top-quality Red Angus genetics, provide a major market for producers who wish to raise natural calves, and sell high-quality beef into consumer channels. The Meyer Company Ranch on the Big Blackfoot River continues to provide fertile ground for Meyer’s progressive vision. (FR)

FINANCIAL MARKETS

HOW THE MARKET LOOKS AT WET SEASON TUBAN (AEP) – Wet season promises good things for the economy and given the boisterousness of Envy’s menu shares in January, February is looking like it will expect more. Shares rose overall in January as a result of the success of the new menu with the great value pricing and delicious comfort food, all this gave the Envy

shares a boost over other stock markets. The biggest seller in November was again Steaks (ENSE: 0857) proving a popular stock is hard to put down, the value showed a modest increase of 6.5% overall for the month – helped particularly by the sales of the US Angus Medallion. Pastas (ENSE: 2600) soared 6.5 per cent and Envy’s famous pizzas (ENSE: 0883) climbed 4.5 percent thank in no small part to the level of fame attached to the creativity of the Envy Pizza. The big rise of the week, however, was seen by Chicken Makhani (ENSE:1385) which climbed 12.8 per cent on previous prices. Envy’s Olive Oil edged up to nearly US$108 per barrel last week, in its eighth straight day of gains, lifting energy and health shares. “It was an encouraging performance for the start of the summer” said Envy’s financial analyst Sudi, “The volume of trade picked up as well, we now have more and more people dining with us and there is a lot of optimism looking forward.” (SD)

TIPS

CHOOSING YOUR STEAK CUT WISELY TUBAN (AEP) – As the famous chef Julia Child once quipped ‘The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook’, here at Envy the chef ’s take their steaks very seriously. The steaks at Envy come from the Meyers Ranch in Wyoming USA and the Envy culinary team have selected the best cuts for their hungry guests. Here’s a brief rundown on the steaks offered at Envy….. Rib-eye - A rib steak without the bone; prized among steak lovers for its marbling and flavour.

Tenderloin - Beef tenderloin, the tenderest cut of beef, is also known as an eye fillet in New Zealand and Australia. Striploin - The striploin, also known in Australia as a porterhouse steak, is cut from the short loin.Striploin consists of a muscle that does little work, and so it is particularly tender, though not as tender as the nearby rib eye or tenderloin, the fat content of the striploin is somewhere between these two cuts.

1. Why did you become a waiter? I actually have no idea, LOL. I suppose I firstly noticed the art of serving the guests, how to give them an overall satisfactory experience.. That’s what i’m doing right now. 2. What is your favorite part of being a waiter? When I can make a hearty conversation with the guests who come to the hotel or our restaurant. I got to learn different cultures. It’s insightful. 3. If you weren’t a waiter what would you be?

INTERVIEW WITH THE STAR Name : Dewa Dodeque Juli Place/Date of Birth : Gianyar, 12 July Position : Waiter With a few years of waiter experience under his belt and self-proclaimed coolness he joined Envy bartender team several years ago with great enthusiasm and pride.

I love Balinese food! A roasted suckling pig is delicious; when we have a big ceremony we make this food for family dinner. 5. What is your craziest service experience? A guest who looked very tired came in to our restaurant wanting to have dinner, few minutes after I took his order he fell asleep, I tried to wake him up when the food was ready but he was sleeping like a dead man.. finally I managed to wake him up by making a very loud sound beside his ears. LOL.

FOOD SAFETY

Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali is the first and still the ONLY hotel in Bali to be HACCP Certified TUBAN (AEP) – HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) is a globally recognised management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. It took a lot of time, training and hard work from the resort team to get everything in place. Every

step of food preparation from purchasing to deliverance was analysed for every loopholes where ‘danger’ could occur and we put processes into place to prevent that. It is now a very well oiled way of working, so strict that even the General Manager is not allowed in the kitchen without necessary precautions and approval from the kitchen team!. (AL)

FEBRUARY SUNSETS IN BALI TUBAN (AEP) – February sees the day time in Bali continue to get longer; but only marginally! 2 minutes to be precise. The time of sunrise is getting later each day through the month, starting on the 1st of February at 06.18 and by the end of the month; sunrise will be at 06:23. Sunsets are getting earlier, the start of the month, sees sunset at 18:47 and by the end of the month, sunset is at 18:40 There are some remarkable places to view the sun setting in Bali. Research tells us that one of the more famous places to watch one of Bali’s spectacular sunsets is along Kuta beach. Here you can join the masses whilst they drink in the last of the sun as it drops below the horizon and leaves wispy tentacles of pink and orange cloud trailing across the sky. The more discerning sunset viewers prefer to be in a semi-reclining position with a cocktail in hand, and if you prefer your sunsets with less humanity, then head to Tuban for the ultimate in sunset viewing.

GO ON SPLURGE (must visit shops)

PLACES

WHERE TO SHOP, DINE & PARTY... Tino Indrawanto The island of Bali has so much to offer in the way of shopping, dining and partying. In this first edition of what is chic and not chic in Bali, let’s first talk about SHOPPING! This heavenly island will pamper you with many selections of goods to be chosen from chic dresses to beautifully crafted home décor to the very well known and I guess iconic, Bir Bintang tank tops! You name it you get it all here in Bali. I’d like to first talk about our immediate neighborhood - let’s talk about KUTA, the ever congested but very FUN part of Bali offering many shops to be visited for your hungry eyes hunting cool things to buy. Let’s start from the Mall, one of Bali’s biggest malls is in the KUTA area, Discovery Shopping Mall is typical of a shopping centre that offers you some of the local brands and a great selection of international brands, overlooking the Indian Sea this mall has the best location on the Island, if you are a local brand fashion seeker this is a great place to hang out! For me, wandering around traditional market s is always fun, KUTA ART MARKET, located right on the famous Kuta Beach, is still one of the best places in Kuta to find locally made goods, find your sun dresses, colourful tops or Bir Bintang tank tops all at great prices; ranging from around 2 USD up to 4 USD but surely sure you know you’re going to have to bargain to get the best deal, a little tip when bargaining – cut the price in half and then work up a little! In addition to clothing you can also find some cute accessories and home décor here, this market is so colourful and very intimate, go and get lost there, it will be fun! After you are tired of shopping at the Art Market, go and sit and relax at a humble warung by the beach. Side by side with KUTA ART MARKET is the KUTA SQUARE, a tiny square full with boutiques and mostly surfer clothing lines and street wear, some of the biggest are BILLABONG, HURLEY, QUIKSILVER, SURFER GIRL and many mixed brands here, find your colorful bikinis here or board short s for your surfing lesson sat Kuta beach or cute dresses for your weekend ! All the shops here offer the coolest surf wear imaginable. If you walk around here you might stumble upon many high end brands and you will be amazed at the prices, be careful they are all fake from fake Paul Smith to Louis Vuitton or Gucci bags or even Calvin Klein undies. Sometimes you will even find branded Dolce Gabbana shops, yeap they are all still fake and they actually offering you ridiculous prices, if you want the originals you can only get it here in Bali at the duty free shop located at Mall Bali Galleria or at the airport, so don’t feel like you are wearing some couture as they are completely faux! In the corner of Kuta Square, if you are bit tired of those surfing togs go peek at some great Indonesian Designers collection at a boutique called SOOK, it’s a in amongst it’s contemporary décor you can find mens and ladies collection here, from cool well designed shirts to a simple dress and pants and also you will find a great collection of t-shirts here and all by Indonesian Designers, you will find lots of quirky items here. Lastly, for a long time, Kuta has been well known for many shops stretching from Jalan Raya Pantai Kuta to Jalan Legian/Legian Kelod and stopping at the border of Kuta & Legian Kaja Street, walk this path till you’re tired J there are many shops offering many great items as long as you have a good eye, if you’re keen to find nice ballerina shoes made from exotic skins you will find them at some of the leather shops selling shoes & hand bags, they set a very reasonable price and just remember bargain for everything, perhaps you want to find some fashionable sketches from local painters you will also find them here on the crowded Kuta streets, home décor and those great collections of accessories and clothing are also here. Get lost and you might stumble into what could become your favourite shop and splurge for the things you love, just make sure you wear your havaiana flip flopa to make it easier to walk around the KUTA area! Have fun people!

TRAFFIC

MOTORBIKE INCIDENT IN KUTA TUBAN (AEP) – With all the motorbikes in Bali it is inevitable that there will be a few bumps and scrapes each day between vehicles. But what are the odds of bumping into the car of someone you know, let alone when that someone is your boss! This unfortunate incident occurred last Tuesday morning in Kuta. Sudi, a waiter at Envy, driving

his motorbike to work when he bumped into the back of a car (a Honda CRV). The bump was quite hard and as a result Sudi slipped off the side of his motorbike. As he lay on the road, the driver of the Honda got out and Sudi saw who it was, none other than his boss, the General Manager, Pak Stephane. Fortunately no on was hurt, damage was minimal and everyone was able to have a little laugh about the incident, including all of Sudi’s work colleagues. (FF)

COCKTAILS

COCKTAILS FOR THE MODERN AGE TUBAN (AEP) - How about something cool and a little bit different? Those were the criteria used when I spent the last few weeks searching for the ultimate cocktail in Bali. My ‘tiring’ (!) research persuaded me that the days of sickly sweet cocktails filled with cloying syrups and juices are well and truly over. There is a new cocktail age in town and if I may use a pun; I have found somewhere in Bali that has really ‘raised the bar’ when it comes to making cocktails.

Wandering along the beach at sunset in Tuban (South Kuta) I heard the sound of drumming in the distance, like a net, the beat pulled me towards the sound and I found Envy – home of cocktails for the modern age. Settling down at the bar I spoke to Indro, one of the bartenders on duty, his first recommendation to me was the Envy Foam, he described it to me as “a simple but radical fusion of vanilla infused vodka, butterscotch schnapps and finished with our homemade butterscotch and cinnamon foam” it sounded too good to miss, so that was the first cocktail on my voyage of discovery. Whilst enjoying my Envy Foam, Jaya was joined at the bar by his boss, Ode, and after Jaya introduced me, Ode was more than happy to talk to me about the history of cocktails and the history and development of Envy’s special breed of cocktails.

By this time I had drained my Envy Foam dry and was ready to move onto the next cocktail, this time Jaya led me towards their Envy Cappuccino which he told me was “a quirky alcoholic twist on the classic cappuccino, with vodka and espresso laced with caramel syrup and kahlua and topped off with a nitrogen charged sweet espresso foam and finally dusted with freshly grated chocolate”. It was amazing, truly the nectar of the caffeine gods. So, dear reader, I can confidently say that I have found my ideal cocktail destination in Bali. Great cocktails, beautiful sunsets and the friendliest staff on the island. What more could anyone want? For a full list of cocktails at Envy, please see page 10

EUROPE (AEP) – There is no question that the price of Italian cuisine is Pizza. With it’s long and colourful history, and regional varieties, pizza is what most people first think of when thinking of Italian food. Whilst the first record of pizza was in 997AD, the history of the Margherita pizza started much more recently, in 1889. In 1889, Queen Margherita of Savoy, accompanied by her husband Umberto I, decided to tour her kingdom. During her travels around Italy she saw many people, especially the peasants, eating large, flat, round bread with various ingredients on top. Curious, the queen ordered her guards to bring one of these pizza breads. The Queen found the bread delicious and would eat it every time she was out amongst the people, which caused some consternation amongst her courtiers. It was not seemly for a Queen to dine on what was seen as peasant’s food. Ignoring the consternation the Queen summoned the famed Chef - Raffaele Esposito from his famous tavern – Pizzeria di Pietro e Basta Cosi , she asked him to bake some pizzas for her. Chef Raffaele created a special pizza for her, deeming the traditional garlic to be unfit for the royal palate, he used tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil (to represent the colours of the Italian flag – red, white and green) and named the pizza after the Queen.

HOW TO MAKE A PIZZA SPECIAL BALI (AEP) – Take one adventurous chef, one ticket to Italy, add 365 days of learning and eating, blend well and leave to simmer for a few years. Oh yes, and don’t forget a good serving of some red, juicy tomatoes with just the right mixture of herbs! Chef Chris spent a year eating his way through copious amounts of pizza whilst attending cooking school in Italy, as a result his palate is finely tuned to how an authentic pizza tomato concasse should taste. The pizzas at Envy have one particular ingredient that make them very special and that’s the tomato concasse layered between the thin and crispy base and the selection of ingredients and mozzarella cheese on the top. Because of the myriad ingredients that can be on top of a pizza, the tomato concasse is often lost in the overall flavour, but a good tomato concasse makes all the difference to the total taste sensation. Chef Chris keeps his recipe secret but if you offer him a nice cold ginger beer, he has been known to pass on his recipe!

WHAT IS CHILL OUT MUSIC

CULTURE

BARONG DANCE Barong is probably the most well known Balinese dance. It is a story telling dance, narrating the fight between good and evil. This dance is the classic example of Balinese way of acting out mythology, resulting in myth and history being blended into one reality. The story goes that Rangda, the mother of Erlangga, the King of Bali in the tenth century, was condemned by Erlangga’s father because she practiced black magic. After she became a widow, she summoned all the evil spirits in the jungle, the demons, to come after Erlangga. A fight occurred, but she

INTRODUCING OUR CARTOONIST BALI (AEP) - Julian Lee has joined the Envy Times as the lead cartoonist. He comes from the background of arts as his grandfather is a painter. Julian discovered his loves

and her black magic troops were too strong that Erlangga had to ask for the help of Barong. Barong came with Erlangga’s soldiers, and fight ensued. Rangda cast a spell that made Erlangga soldiers all wanted to kill themselves, pointing their poisoned keris into their own stomachs and chests. Barong cast a spell that made their body resistant to the sharp keris. At the end, Barong won, and Rangda ran away. Somebody can die or get seriously injured in a Barong dance. It is said that if Rangda’s spell is too strong, a weak soldier may not be able to resist it, even with the help of Barong. He may end up hurting himself with his own keris. The masks of Barong and Rangda are considered sacred items, and before they are brought out, a priest must be present to offer blessings by sprinkling them with holy water taken from Mount Agung, and offerings must be presented.

BALI (AEP) - Chill out music, sometimes simply called ‘chill’ first emerged in the early 1990s when relaxing, mellow music was played in designated ‘chill rooms’ at dance clubs. Chill music covers a few styles of electronic music with the tracks always having a mid-tempo beat and being relaxing in mood. An entire culture has evolved around chill out music, with many bars, clubs and hotels around the world catering to a relaxed, chilled out atmosphere through the design of the venue (muted tones, relaxing furniture – day beds, comfortable chairs), the food and beverage product (creative cocktails, simple and tasty food) As a result of its relaxing and mellow beat, chill out music has proved very popular at beachside locations with great sunset views, such as Café del Mar in Ibiza and Envy in Bali.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Sir, I wonder if you could settle a matter of great debate in my household. We cannot agree on the subject of where the best sunsets in the world can be viewed. Some in my family say Hawaii, others say the Philippines, however, I believe the best sunsets in the world can be viewed from Bali, and as head of the household I feel that my opinion is the correct one and should win the debate. What are your thoughts? E.N. Smith, Ulan Bator

Dear Sir, Whilst in Bali one evening, I sat holding my chilled cocktail and watching the sun set and wondered why it is that not all locations in the world can be so relaxing and offer such a wonderful way to spend a holiday. I would be interested in your other reader’s opinions. J.K. Philus, Tokyo Dear Sir, If you have just quit your job at The Bali Journal and just joined The Envy Times, you probably remember my letters of August 20, 1997 & Jan 11, 2000. If you haven`t changed your job recently

please ignore the earlier sentence. This letter is to bring to your notice that the glamour quotient in your newspaper has been dipping. In the last six months you have carried only three photos with the navel showing (one of which was a man`s) and only five photos with the cleavage showing (two of which weren`t clear because the color had smudged). Please compare it with the statistics of your glamour quotient between Sept 2002 to Feb 2003 ��� 16 navel shows, 24 cleavages and 6 bikini shots. Please explain. Mrs, A. L One, Middle of Nowhere

DESSERT

TIRAMISU Anna Maria Volpi

I was in Italy at the time. A friend of mine told me about this new cake recipe she got. She was so enthusiastic about it that I felt compelled to try it immediately. The taste was unbelievably good, as I had never tasted before. Since then, I have been in love with this dessert. Everybody knows by now that Tiramisu’ means “pick-me-up” in Italian, named for the high energy content (eggs and sugar) and the caffeine of the strong espresso coffee. There are many different

ET/E.J

stories about the origin of Tiramisu’. It is a layered cake, so some people place its origin in Tuscany, where another famous layered Italian dessert is very popular. It is called “Zuppa Inglese” (English Soup). It is neither English nor a soup. It is a simple cake of ladyfingers or a sponge cake soaked in “alkermes” liquor with alternating layers of chocolate and egg custard. Layered cakes have been around for a long time. The brilliant idea in Tiramisu’ is not in the technique of layering, but in the components. It was a great idea to combine coffee, zabaglione cream, and chocolate together. This is the true innovation of Tiramisu’. I love to study the history of food. In my book The Timeless Art of Italian Cuisine – Centuries of Scrumptious Dining, there is extensive information about the culinary history of the Italian regions. I tried to trace the origin of Tiramisu’ by investigating Italian cookbooks. Open an old Italian cookbook, browse through the index and… surprise! There is no Tiramisu’

cake recipe. My first encounter with Tiramisu’ was in 1985. The first clue is by the famous Italian gastronome Giuseppe Maffioli. In his book Il ghiottone Veneto(The Venetian Glutton) first published in 1968, he talks extensively about zabaglione custard. The name of this cream originates from Zabaja, a sweet dessert popular in the Illiria region, a coastal area across the Adriatic Sea that was Venetian territory for long time during the golden age of the “Repubblica Serenissima” (“The Most Serene Republic”) of Venice. Zabaglione was prepared in those times with sweet Cyprus wine. “The groom’s bachelor friends,” says Maffioli, “at the end of the long wedding banquet, maliciously teasing, gave him a big bottle of zabajon before the couple retired to guarantee a successful and prolonged honeymoon.” “The zabajon,” Maffioli continues, “sometimes had whipped cream added, but in this case was served very cold, almost frozen, and accompanied by baicoli, small thin Venetian cookies invented in the 1700’s by a baker in the Santa Margherita suburb of Venice.” The combination of added whipped cream, the serving temperature, and the cookies are close to the modern Tiramisu’ recipe. And even the allusion to the energetic properties of the zabaglione seem to refer to Tiramisu’s name. Later in my research, the oldest recipe I could find was in a book by Giovanni Capnist titled I Dolci del Veneto (The Desserts of Veneto). The first edition was published in 1983 and has a classic recipe for Tiramisu’. But the final word on the origin of Tiramisu’ is from a book by Fernando e Tina Raris named La Marca Gastronomica published in 1998. It is a book entirely dedicated to the cuisine of Treviso. The authors remember what Giuseppe Maffioli wrote in an article in 1981: “Tiramisu’ was born recently, just 10 years ago in the town of Treviso. It was proposed for the first time in the restaurant Le Beccherie. The dessert and its name immediately became popular, and this cake was copied by many restaurants first in Treviso, then all around Italy.” The restaurant “Le Beccherie” still makes the dessert with the classic recipe. They use ladyfingers soaked in bitter strong espresso coffee, mascarpone-zabaglione cream, and bitter cocoa powder. Alba and Ado Campeol, the owners of the restaurant, regret not having patented the name and the recipe to avoid all the speculation and guessing about the origin of this cake and the diffusion of so many recipes that have nothing to do with the original Tiramisu’. I have tried countless different recipes among the infinite variations of Tiramisu’, but the classic one, the recipe from Le Beccherie restaurant, is still the one I prepare today and the one I prefer.
