W H E N W E S TA RT E D planning this issue, the word “savor” quickly rose to the top as the theme that embodied our goal for the summer of 2019. To savor means to taste something and enjoy it completely. It’s as simple and as complex as that. It stirs up a desire to slow the pace of life this summer; to truly taste every bite and every sip; to seek out the spaces of quiet beauty that surround us; and to experience what it means to enjoy something completely.

There are so many ways to savor this season in and around Kennett Square. From food and beer, to live music and art, we love curating these quarterly guides for you. In this issue, we focus on local food & drink (a tough job but someone has to do it). Among these pages, we celebrate the 20th year of the Kennett Farmers Market. We introduce you to some locals who are giving their time to the Kennett Food Cupboard. And we remind you of the many places to dine, wine, and shop for your favorite goodies. On page 34, you’ll find a collection of locally produced food and drinks that are grown, prepared, packaged, and offered right here in Chester County—and we’ll tell you exactly where to find them! And because summertime is ideal for exploring, we've put together a guide full of fun local destinations that you should know about.

Whether you’re looking for family-friendly activities, adventure, romance, or culture, we’ve got you covered! Turn to page 40 and start working on that summer bucket list! It’s incredibly rewarding to lift up our local small businesses, our innovative restaurants, and to spotlight the many people who make it all happen. We hope you use Fig as your guide to savoring our community. Wishing you a summer of slow-paced savoring. BRIANNA CARLISLE, BECKY GALANTE, AND THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM

AUTHENTIC: A French Connection in Kennett Square

Estelle, sharing chocolate samples at Philter.

Authentic: Estelle Tracy THE MOST COMPELLING S T O RY E V E R might be one written in chocolate. Meet Estelle Tracy— food writer, chocolate sommelier, and storyteller. Her interactive chocolate tastings, seasoned with her infectious Joie de vivre, tell stories, spark curiosity, and give participants resources for further exploration. Estelle’s own story begins outside Paris, where she graduated with a chemistry degree in 2001. She found a job in Pennsylvania, and she and her husband and two daughters are happy to call Kennett Square, this small town full of interesting people, home. Estelle’s successful blog, “Le hamburger

et le croissant,” demystifying American cuisine for French expats, led to a book—and eventually to chocolate. A friend who ran a 50K to celebrate her fiftieth birthday inspired Estelle to try something new for her thirty-seventh. When Philter’s Chris Thompson gave her a tiny piece of chocolate that “didn’t taste like chocolate,” she decided to taste and review 37 chocolates. She soon realized she wouldn’t stop at 37. “I thought of chocolate as one flavor— brownie. But not all cocoa beans are created equal.” Like wine, chocolate reflects terroir. “Some beans are so light you can eat them like peanuts. Some taste of citrus, raspberry, or lavender. Each has personality.”

The chocolate world needs guides who will open wrappers, invite people to taste, and give them a context for enjoying chocolate. Whether at the Kennett Library or a local winery, Estelle designs each tasting around several chocolates—they might share a common origin, percentage, or maker—and tells their story. These stories are just beginning. Estelle is a collaborator at heart and is exploring, for example, chocolate pairings with wine and bourbon. “2019 is for chocolate,” she says. Keep up with Estelle’s tasting schedule at 37chocolates.com.

F R E S H FA C E Welcoming new businesses to Kennett Square. Joe Varano, The Body Protocol

Fresh Face: The Body Protocol THE FUTURE OF FITNESS IS H E R E . Joe Varano, diagnosed with kidney disease at age five, is living testimony to the miracles of science. “I beat my body up doing martial arts and had five rotator cuff surgeries,” he says. His first kidney transplant was at thirteen. When that kidney failed 32 years later, he didn’t want to be on immunosuppressants anymore so he found a Northwestern Hospital research trial. Chemotherapy and radiation eradicated his immune system, and in 2016 he received his donor’s stem cells along with his kidney. Today, Joe is a new man in more ways than one. The self-professed science

geek and IT professional wants to help others be healthy. At The Body Protocol, he educates people about how advances in fitness technology can deliver results in less time per week, without injury. “We apply science to everything else— but we’ve exercised the same way for 150–200 years,” he says. Twenty-first century fitness is targeted and efficient, and Joe has the cuttingedge equipment that professional athletes use. The ARX machine provides a personalized, high-intensity, but safe workout for any fitness level in under 15 minutes. A nine-minute ride on the AI-powered CAR.O.L. bike, with two 20-second sprints, burns as much fat as

a 45-minute run. Results without sweat. Recovery, Joe says, is crucial and often overlooked. The red and near-infrared light of the Joovv provides multiple benefits, including improved skin health. A three-minute whole-body cryotherapy session oxygenates blood for increased energy and healing. “You’ll also burn 500–800 calories and sleep like a log,” Joe says. Joe enjoys living and working in Kennett Square and looks forward to helping people achieve better health. His equipment may look unfamiliar, but he urges people not to be intimidated. “It’s easy to learn,” he says—and the results are completely quantifiable.

D R . R I C K Y H A U G , after completing residency at Thomas Jefferson University, spent seven years practicing in West Grove and felt frustrated that patients were having to wait so long for appointments, and were offered limited time and access to the doctors. And beyond that, he recognized that his patients were spending excessive amounts of money on insurance premiums, medications, and lab testing. Inspired by the oldfashioned doctor-patient relationship he envisioned while at Temple Medical School, Dr. Haug decided to open a new kind of medical practice with a model called Direct Primary Care.

Dr. Ricky Haug, MD and April Hipkins, LPN

A refreshingly different model of primary care

14


Core Family Practice was this vision brought to life, and opened its doors in 2016 in downtown Kennett Square with a mission to offer each patient a caring, personalized experience. Direct Primary Care means they do not accept traditional health insurance. Although most patients do have some kind of health insurance policy, Core Family Practice does not bill the insurance companies. Payment works like a monthly membership—similar to joining a gym or Netflix. By removing

the insurance company middle man, Dr. Haug is able to practice the medicine he believes is truly best for the patient—unhurried time with each patient, easier access to the medical team, and appointments available within 24 hours or less. If you would like to get to know the Core Family Practice team and learn more about the Direct Primary Care model, call to arrange a meet and greet.

As more patients have joined the practice, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Paul Yerkes to the team.

Paul Yerkes, MD graduated from Villanova University and, after practicing as an Engineer for five years, decided to pursue medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine. He completed his Family Medicine residency at Christiana Care Health System where he also served as Chief Resident. Dr. Yerkes is passionate about serving the community in which he was born and raised, and hopes to bring a return of the “town doc” feel by providing high quality primary care built on a foundation of meaningful relationships, access, and trust. Dr. Yerkes pursued a job in direct primary care, as he believes the cost of health care should be transparent and insurance should not inhibit care. In addition to serving his community, Dr. Yerkes has also served his country as a Combat Engineer in the United States Marine Corps and has a passion for providing healthcare to veterans. Outside of medicine, Dr. Yerkes enjoys running, mountain biking, gardening, and spending time with his two daughters and his wife.

GIVING BACK Making a difference in our community.

Giving Back: Dennis Babcock & Pete D'Angelo DENNIS BABCOCK AND PETE D’ANGELO have been friends for over 50 years. “We always got along,” Dennis says. They both laugh. “Most of the time,” they say in unison. “We have the same thoughts on most things,” Dennis says, including a strong commitment to community, service, and family. They met after Dennis got out of the navy, then they married their wives, who are also friends and volunteers, on the same day in 1971. Their dedication to community service goes way back too. They were both in the Jaycees, and in the 1970s before the Food Cupboard was established

they helped with a Christmas food program. Pete and Dennis began volunteering at the Food Cupboard after retiring, respectively, from banking and DuPont. They’re there most days, doing “whatever needs to be done.” The Food Cupboard provides a bridge to the next paycheck for about 400 families monthly, but it’s only one part of the holistic services that Kennett Area Community Service (KACS) and its dedicated staff provide. Lack of affordable housing, Pete and Dennis say, is one of the area’s biggest problems. “So many people work hard making minimum wage and still struggle to

get by,” Dennis says. People are very appreciative, but Pete and Dennis say their biggest reward is seeing lives turned around. “We live in a generous community,” Pete says. “KACS welcomes all donations of food and money—and volunteer time.” They encourage others to join them. “When you retire,” Dennis says, “it’s not the work you miss, but the people. This keeps me busy, involved, and meeting people.” He quotes a line from the Jaycee Creed: “service to humanity is the best work of life.” Both men agree that sums it up well.

Designing a better space for healing

TO GET A TRUE IDEA OF THE TIME and effort that’s been invested in the expansion of Chester County Hospital and the renovation of its Emergency Department, imagine the undertaking as an iceberg and the construction as the part that sits above the water’s surface. We physically only see part of the larger picture. For over two years, starting in 2015, the architects, Ballinger, met with clinical staff to seek their feedback on each of the areas—operating rooms, Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, patient rooms and Emergency Department— that comprise the largest expansion in the hospital’s history.

54

“There’s a lot that had to be worked out [before construction] because everybody had different views on how everything had to fit in particular rooms,” says Larry Bell, the hospital’s Senior Project Manager for the expansion and renovation. “So, a lot of time and energy went into ensuring that the designs met everyone’s respective needs,” says Jen Corse, the hospital’s Nursing Business Manager and clinical lead for the project. In each meeting, Ballinger architects would arrange a large-scale layout of the specific floorplan across a table and populate it with proportionate, 3D printouts of the various pieces of

equipment that would fill the space. The architects and clinicians then discussed how they could improve current deficiencies and maintain other positive aspects. PLANNING FOR A RAPIDLY EVOLVING FUTURE was also an integral part of most conversations, especially with the operating room teams. “To try to figure out what the next 50 years is going to look like in an operating room is difficult to wrap your head around,” Corse says. “What kind of technology will be available? What will the equipment look like? You’re using your current day knowledge and a little creativity to try to understand

701 EAST MARSHALL STREET, WEST CHESTER 610.431.5000 CHESTERCOUNT YHOSPITAL.ORG/EXPANSION


an unknown. As one of the clinicians involved, it’s been a little daunting. You try to prepare for every scenario. “What we tried to do was provide a lot of flexibility in the design, to the extent that we could, in an effort to ‘futureproof’ the facility,” Bell says. The operating rooms, for example, will be especially large spaces that will be able to accommodate large equipment and added personnel for increasingly complex surgeries. TO AID THE EFFORT, full-size mockups of each of the floor-plans were also created in an unused corner of the hospital and presented to the clinicians.

In the case of the operating rooms, that meant a 750-square foot room and a 1,100- square foot room complete with walls and equipment. “It goes beyond just looking at a drawing and trying to guess, ‘Is this adequate circulation space?’ ‘Is this where we want to place everything?” Bell says. “We even did an elevator mock up because one of the critical parts of treatment is patient transport in the elevators.” The design meetings concluded before the start of the construction in May 2017. A similar round of sessions are expected to begin in the coming months and this time they’ll address how to best

incorporate the new and updated spaces into the rest of the hospital so that they will function seamlessly. The project will include 15 modern operating rooms, as well as 13 Emergency Department rooms, three state-of-theart labs for catheterization and other procedures, new areas for noninvasive cardiology and pre-procedure testing, 99 inpatient rooms, and a new entrance.

ENTHUSIASTIC TOO:

“I recommend [Springfield Hospital] to everyone. It’s clean, and the nurses are friendly, helpful, and efficient! The doctors go out of their way to help you and get you the right care. I give this hospital 5 stars.”

The needs of the community and patients come first. That's why Crozer Keystone has been hard at work renovating their most commonly used areas at Springfield Hospital—such as the Short Procedure Unit reception area, their inpatient rooms, and Women’s Imaging Center. They’ve nearly doubled their bed count, and all patient rooms are now private. Pair these enhancements with valet parking, a concierge program, and a veteran clinical team and you will quickly see what all the excitement is about.

HYPERLOCAL FRESH PRODUCE is the year-round standard rather than the exception at Garden Spot Village. The community’s state-of-the-art Aeroponic greenhouse allows Executive Chef Michael Pezzillo to use ultra-fresh herbs in his recipes. Greenhouse-to-table literally takes minutes when salad greens are harvested mid-morning and served at noon. “Quality, fresh ingredients make all the difference,” Chef Michael explains. “Garden Spot’s on-site greenhouse opens possibilities for a year-round, seasonal

and sustainable menu. Plus, the carbon footprint for fresh produce in February is minimal when our lettuce, tomatoes, and spinach only travel 2,700 feet instead of 2,700 miles. In the summer we partner with Lancaster County farmers to source additional seasonal produce like corn, beans, and asparagus.” Your best meals have yet to be enjoyed. Enjoy lunch or dinner at one of Garden Spot Village’s award-winning restaurants today. Read more: gardenspotvillage.org/ aeroponic-greenhouse

Anyone who eats with us is

Delivering to all of Kennett Square and Hockessin

BYOB BRING YOUR OWN BOTT LE

in 1974, three cousins bought a little neighborhood shop known as ‘Pat’s.’ From the very beginning their

motto has always been “Family first—and anyone who eats with us is family.” With this commitment to service and quality in mind, ‘Pat’s Pizzeria’ began to develop a reputation for its name and expansion soon followed. Three generations later they still maintain their commitment to providing the freshest meals of the highest quality with impeccable service. Pat’s continues to honor the traditions of their original authentic recipes with dough made daily and fresh chopped salads.

The Pat’s menu is always expanding, adding new, wellcrafted items and there is truly something for everyone with selections from hamburgers and cheese steaks to hot or cold subs and quinoa bowls. You can customize your meal exactly the way you like it with build your own options including salads, subs, strombolis and pasta dishes and even gluten free pizza. Pat’s welcomes you with a casual atmosphere to enjoy a meal with family, and feel free to BYOB to pair dinner with your favorite bottle. They offer total convenience with online ordering as well as tracking to make dinner planning easy so you know exactly when it will arrive. Bring on the yum!
