what a month it has been!

I

n only the second month of me being editor, I took the bold (and potentially foolish!) step of going on a week-long vacation to Hawaii. Missing a week of work to lay in the sun and swim with wild dolphins was a real test, but here we are. Thank goodness for wifi and emailing! And while I would love to write about work ethic and how helpful my team is or how I'm thankful that the community we live in is so cool that it was easy to put engaging pieces together, I cannot omit the most exciting thing that happened to me this month. When on my trip to Hawaii, my boyfriend Keenan took me on a tour up to the top of Mauna Kea (elevation: 13,803 ft, temperature: 30 degrees!) As we watched the sun rise over the tropical, 50th state, he popped THE question. Yes, we are engaged now!

After posting this news on my Instagram and Facebook I was blown away by the power of social media. I received so many congratulatory messages from the Fargo community, particularly from people I'd worked with on contributions to the magazine. I only have lived in this area since May and I definitely wasn't expecting to have been welcomed so warmly here and to have so many people I only recently met help me celebrate. Fargo, you really are something special. Thank you for celebrating with me and I hope you enjoy the stories I've helped put together for this month. Don't read this issue hungry though; within these pages are many tasty creations from local food movers and shakers! Until next month,

Hector International Airport Besides the obvious reasons why I like an airport when traveling, I felt especially happy upon arriving home when I was greeted with a magazine shelf full of local publications, including this very one. Nothing says "home" quite like rows and rows of local media.

3 Dak & Co Sweatshirt When I have a long flight I want to be cozy, but I also don't want to look like a slob. Before my trip I stopped by a Dak & Co pop-up and got myself a No-Dak pullover to wear during my travels. Comfy, cute and repping Fargo!

4 The Nail Bar Who wants to go to the tropics with plain nails? Before I left, I got a manicure at The Nail Bar and chose a fun, coral hued shade that made me feel oh-so ready for the beaches. I'll definitely be going back soon.

5 Clothes Mentor When packing, I became well aware that most of my closet is black...which isn't so appropriate for Hawaii. Many stores are beginning to stock for the fall weather, so I wasn't having much luck. But I made a trip to Clothes Mentor and found some lightly loved pieces that were a bit more fun and colorful than what is typically in my closet.

14 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Have you met Harvestable? Nate Heinold and Travis Rosenbluth created the app Harvestable as a way to connect food producers to restaurants in order to create a blooming, local food network. We spoke with Heinold and Rosenbluth about Harvestable, including what it is, how it came about and why it is important to our community. The Men Travis Rosenbluth is a professional chef and entrepreneur from Philadelphia. He graduated Penn State before enrolling at the International Culinary Center in New York City. Upon graduation, Travis cooked in kitchens such as High St. on Market and the coveted Fork restaurant in Philadelphia. Later, Travis invested money left to him by his grandfather to start his own business in Fargo: TwoBear Food. In 2017, he built his first subsidiary project of Twobear Food: Phargo Food. This food truck sold original Philadelphia cheesesteaks in the downtown Fargo area. He used this as a way to serve the Fargo community a piece of Philadelphia culture via the cheesesteak, sold in the classic “Whiz wit'/Whiz witout” fashion. However, the following season, he sold the truck as a means to invest in Harvestable. Travis has also been active in the Fargo food community, opening up Wild Terra's kitchen, helping with the CassClay Food Commission and is currently the project manager for the North Dakota Culinary Institute. All in all, Travis is happiest when there is good food on the table and good people around it. Nate Heinold is a technology and management professional, originally from Milwaukee. He’s been involved in restaurant management, grocery warehousing, logistics management, project management and technology startups for the last seven years. Some of his highlights in Fargo have been growing with the Myriad Mobile team as a software development company, partnering with NASA for testing drones with Botlink and helping change the face of downtown Fargo with new accounting and project management tools at Kilbourne Group. Nate is happiest finding the simplest solution to a complex problem, and with

his background in software systems and a love for local food, Harvestable promises to be an exciting adventure for him. Travis and Nate met through a mutual friend on a mid-August day and spent hours standing on the corner of 4th Avenue and Broadway talking about our community’s food systems. Nate, coming from a systems background, and Travis, coming from a culinary background envisioned a new phase of local food distribution. From that conversation, they developed a friendship and harbored the idea of transforming the local food system. After receiving an outpouring of support from the local food community, they decided to take the plunge and start developing the platform. They’ve spent countless hours brainstorming, designing and planning Harvestable while sharing many meals and spending quality time with Juniper, Nate’s Goldendoodle. The App Harvestable is an online marketplace that gives farmers and chefs the right tools to market and transact with one another in an efficient, easy and fun way. Harvestable was started with hopes to be the best platform for any restaurant or chef to be able to source local ingredients. Without Harvestable, ordering local food is managed in emails, text messages, phone calls, excel sheets, notepads, Facebook messages… it’s a mess. Harvestable makes ordering local food as easy as placing an order from Sysco or any other large distributor. Log into one portal, order from all the available products and food gets delivered on the delivery date by the farmer! By providing a way to schedule deliveries, fewer trips with more products delivered are being made – which saves time and money. Heinold and Rosenbluth knew they needed a much better tool for farmers to connect with chefs and market their 15


Doubting Thomas Farms is just one of the local growers that Harvestable aims to help. Local goods of all kinds can now find their way into kitchens with ease. Heinold and Rosenbluth aren't afraid to take on all sides of this business venture...even feeding chickens! products. They knew that farmers and food producers of all types are skilled artisans, but they often aren’t looking to create their own website and learn how to do email campaigns to promote their food. With Harvestable, the technical complexities are handled, so the producer can focus on making tasty products. "There is an enhancement of the personal relationships that happen only when sourcing locally," Heinold said. The personal touches are still present, because farmers who use the system are still dropping off their produce and meeting the chef. But this way, they don’t have to worry about writing invoices or waiting for payments. The platform eases the technical and transactional work for both parties, leaving space to delight in one another’s craft. These strong, collaborative relationships are priceless. The Idea The idea stemmed from a simple question: Why isn’t more food sourced locally? Rosenbluth said, "we live in one of the most fertile areas on the planet, and yet every week we are still getting products from thousands of miles aways delivered here." The reason, they determined, is because the industrial supply chain has built up a sophisticated system of production, distribution and marketing which has left the local food market behind and without support. Looking at systems available to local food producers, it became apparent that there wasn’t a modern solution to this problem, and so they set out to build just that. Other gig companies such as Airbnb and Etsy prove that if given the right tools, a market of independent artisans can compete with the established industrial companies. The Belief Behind Harvestable Harvestable believes in communities and the power of food. "For thousands of years, local food wasn’t a luxury, but a requirement. Strong communities existed because everyone relied on the

cooperation of their neighbors," these two men said. "Unique cuisines were inspired from the limited access to ingredients." Harvestable is a modern way of reconnecting to this very powerful network, which increases quality food access and expands opportunities for local food producers. Food is one of the most powerful ways to communicate. Sharing your produce, cooking, or sharing a table with someone is a primary form of human connection. While there are plenty of fast food restaurants that will sell you flavor and calories, you can’t mass produce that basic connection with the food you eat. Harvestable aims to flip that and empower the small food system with advanced tools that compete with the industrial food system. It’s hard to find anyone that’s not interested in local food to some extent. From the customer’s perspective, there is a strong interest in knowing more about the food they're paying for. Restaurant goers are often willing to pay more for traceable food and will more frequently visit establishments who promote this story. In the competitive world of food service, you can either be the cheapest or be different. Local food is the ultimate differentiator because it’s a complete artisan product.

20 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


ABOUT MEZZALUNA

L

ocated downtown just behind the historic Fargo Theatre is Mezzaluna, a casual, fine dining spot. Expect an upscale eatery with the decor and menu of a big-city restaurant, the warmth and familiarity of a small-town joint and the mystique of a 1920s speakeasy. South Fargo native Joe Brunner is the newest Executive Chef at Mezzaluna. Brunner, however, did not come to the chef life from birth. After a two year stint studying Criminal Justice at NDSU, he decided to switch over to NDSCS culinary school in Wahpeton to follow something he’s always known: cooking. Growing up around his mother and grandmother cooking inspired him to switch back into this life, and Fargo eaters are thankful for this decision. After working with Eric Watson, owner of Rustica and Mosaic Foods, at NDSCS, Watson approached Brunner about a job working with him at Rustica and Mezzaluna. Brunner rose through the ranks, becoming sous chef to Watson and then ultimately executive chef of Mezzaluna. In April, Brunner joined co-owner Taylor Snelling in taking over Mezzaluna, all while ensuring the Fargo staple stayed true to its roots. Brunner and his team at Mezzaluna release four seasonal menus throughout the year, so he always is on his toes and thinking of new things to feature. “We have to think of the time and what is in season with our local farmers. Me and my sous chefs brainstorm and research. We sit together and come up with ideas, maybe based on what we have done before,” said Brunner. Keeping the menu new and fresh each month is certainly a task that pays off with diners who frequent Mezzaluna. “When you find that dish and you know it’s the one, that’s the best part of the job,” said Brunner. “We’ve gone through so many dishes where you put out the dish and it sounded great in your mind, but it just ended up not working.” After processes of trial and error, Brunner noted that when it all falls into place and both himself and the customer are satisfied, it’s the most rewarding experience.

If not, I or my Sous Chefs Jared and Brittney will show how it is done. Training and teaching are a big thing at Mezzaluna. Knowing every project and station is key.

11:00 AM – 2:00 PM: Meetings with

representatives from all my distributors throughout the week. Once the prep list and store runs are finished, I give my team a little break before we roll into dinner service. During this time, I like to take a second and do some research about different seasons, different flavors, different concepts that maybe we would want to feature in our upcoming menu. Were always looking for something different.

Nevada, gets home around the same time so I like to make us something to eat, but nothing crazy. I start to wind down and just watch some TV. Some would say that’s a perfect time to try and get away from the restaurant, but that never works out. The only TV I find myself watching is anything to do with cooking and food. Even while watching TV I'll open one of my cook books and look up something I just thought of...it's never ending. But that is why I love what I do, this career is ever changing. And with what I want Mezzaluna to be, we have to stay with and even ahead of the trends. After all this, I’m ready for bed and I hit the sack, excited for what tomorrow is going to bring.

1213 Northern Pacific Ave Suite 100, Fargo

24 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


ABOUT PRAIRIE ROOTS FOOD CO-OP

A

ptly named, Prairie Roots Food Co-Op embraces all that our local prairie has to offer by providing downtown Fargo with locally harvested or prepared foods. Providing a mix of natural and organic foods, you can gather your groceries here or enjoy their hot bar of ready-to-eat dishes. New to Prairie Roots Co-Op, but an 11 year veteran of the Fargo area is Joey Haynes. Growing up with an Air Force father and moving around from San Antonio to Grand Forks to Fargo, and many places in between, Haynes is used to bouncing around a bit. After finishing college at NDSU, he dove right into the food world. His resume includes working in the bakery at Hornbachers, helping open all the Panera’s in North Dakota, being head chef at Vinyl Taco when it opened, then opening his own Green House Cafe. Since August however, Haynes has taken on the new deli manager and chef role at Prairie Roots Food Co-Op. With Prairie Roots only being just over a year old, Haynes is taking on this position as a way to bring in some fresh ideas and provide some great dishes. Haynes noted that lots of people stop by the Co-Op for groceries and produce, but often breeze past the hot food bar and deli section. He wants to change that and give customers more and more options for tasty foods, especially vegan items. “Since it’s a hot bar and it’s serve yourself, there tends to be a lot more comfort foods and home cooked type meals here. It’ll be nice to expand on because a lot of people don’t have time to cook anymore,” said Haynes. He intends to include some favorites, such as the Green House Cafe vegan mac and cheese, to allow shoppers to have access to good, quick bites. “It’ll fill you up, it’ll taste good and you won’t feel like crap afterwards,” said Haynes.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

10:00 AM: Start to set up for lunch. We have a hot food bar, salad bar and daily soups. Everything is fresh, so timing changes according to the daily menu, but it is important to give yourself enough time.

11:00 AM-2:00 PM: Lunchtime. Working a weigh 6:00 AM: Wake up. Take out our dog, Rooper, while I drink a glass of lemon water. Then I take Rooper back inside, wake up my wife, Abby, and tell her bye for the day. She works at 7am, most days. I also check emails and our employer phone app for anything urgent.

6:15 AM: Go work out. I feel like I need to

work out before work almost every day, or else my mind is a mess while I am in the kitchen.

7:30 AM: Get ready and leave for work. 8:00 AM: Look at our Grab & Go case for

holes and check with our prep cook, Roxy, to make sure all is going well. Help with whatever needs to be done. Make coffee and breakfast sandwiches, as needed.

26 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

and pay food bar is much different from restaurants. Rather than waiting on orders to come back to the kitchen, we have to keep a constant eye on the bar to stay ahead of daily demand. We don’t keep back up items warm, because we want to keep everything as fresh as possible, so we have to make sure we are starting items well before they run out.

2:00 PM-4:30 PM: Our hot bar is open the

whole day, 11am-7pm, but this time is generally a bit slower. So, this is when I try to get to all of my meetings and phone calls. Working at a co-op is great because we work with so many local food vendors, but of course, everyone’s schedule is different, so it gets tricky sometimes. In general, everyone is very flexible and great to work with.

4:30 PM: Make sure the hot bar and salad

bar are nice and full for dinner and make a night prep list for the closing cook.

5:00 PM: Ask around the co-op to see

if anyone else needs help with any miscellaneous tasks. I love the environment here, because no matter what part of the store you work in, everyone is willing to lend a hand.

5:30 PM-6:00 PM: Get home and make dinner for Abby and I.

6:00 PM -10:00 PM: I rarely sit down in a day,

but if I do, it’s during this time to watch one of our favorite shows. Otherwise, I do some yard work or housework, or we go find some live music to enjoy while I bounce recipe ideas off of Abby. Abby doesn’t cook too much, but when she does, it’s great, and she is great at telling me how appealing an idea sounds before I even try it, which is almost as important as how it tastes.

ABOUT LUNA

L

una is a neighborhood kitchen and wine and beer lounge. Midwest tastes can be found at Luna with their ever-evolving menu of dishes that embrace local providers and the community. Beginning as a coffee shop, this Fargo staple has since transformed into a full eatery with a menu designed for sharing. Ryan Nitschke is the executive chef at Luna. He found his way to Luna after being the executive chef at The HoDo for eight years and then being approached to take over and create a kitchen for Luna. What used to be a wine and cheese hot spot has turned to a full neighborhood restaurant thanks to Nitschke. This has allowed him to be able to have freedom with the menu, a cool and lucky thing, he notes. Running the kitchen of a place like Luna has allowed him to have more freedom and be more experimental with his cooking. “The experimental part of it never stops. That's kind of my identity, being an experimental cook and a farm-to-table cook,” said Nitschke. “I’m really passionate about working with the farmers that I’ve been working with the past 10 and half years. I cook a lot with seasonality, so the menu changes a lot with that. Whatever the farmer drops off, I cook with.” Luna has a seasonally driven menu, ensuring that the food available from local farmers gets used at its freshest and most abundant. Being able to work with these area farmers is the backbone of a lot of what Luna does. Being able to keep a rotating menu allows guests to try a variety of different things with each recurring visit.

While we spoke with Andrea about her experiences here, she made an emphasis on the fact that the operation is a team effort and would not be possible if it was just her doing it alone. BernBaum's came to life two and a half years ago and has been serving up delicious dishes consistently ever since. When her son was school-age, Andrea didn't want to have to be working nights, so she took a job outside of restaurants for about 2 years. However, with a background of about 20 years of experience here and there in the culinary industry, she found herself unable to stay away form the heat of the kitchen long. With Brett being Jewish and Andrea being Scandinavian-German, they noticed that the Fargo area did't really have any restaurants that highlighted those backgrounds. With experience of doing bagels in her previous jobs, the idea for BernBaums came to life naturally. Brett was already running Mid-Mod Madhaus in a space with plenty of extra room, so they decided to launch to bagel empire there. Tucked away in the back is a kitchen that contains all the prep stations that allow for timely service up front. "We built the most minimal kitchen here to see if it worked and did," said Andrea. 33


On one of her favorite parts of the experience Andrea said, "It's the community of people who decide to eat here. Whether that's regulars who become friends, or if someone just comes in once. I think it’s very gratifying to have those types of relationships with people and to be able to provide something in their life." Even while speaking with her, Andrea was able to greet everyone who walked in the door by their name and with a warmness that felt like home.

While Andrea and Brett are the masterminds of BernBaum's, they place a huge value on their whole team. “At this point in my life, the most important things to me are the fact that it’s a team sport. It’s very important to me who I work with and it’s very important to me to impart that it’s really not about me,” said Andrea. Besides Andrea, the team that makes this all happen consists of Paul Perez (chef), Amy Rice (front of house), Brett Bernath (owner) and Pat McCoy (kitchen).

#EATfargo You know when you see an advertisement on TV of a beautiful, slow motion shot of a juicy hamburger being assembled? And then all you can think about for the next few hours is how much you need that TGI Friday's burger? Media has a way of getting in our heads (and tastebuds) and making us hungry. However, here at Fargo Monthly we are about all things local. So we've put together a small selection of #fargofoodie Instagrams to get your tastebuds watering for some local dishes you can find just right down the street.

38 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

The Red Silo's Bobby Jo Cody teamed with WildMoon Salsa's Knutson family to create a unique collection of recipes celebrating the heritages this area is so warm to.

WildMoon Enterprises, LLC. WildMoon is a family, veteran and woman owned small business specializing in salsa, and Livin’ On Salsa Time apparel, totes and gift boxes. With everything else these women do, they are adding one more notch on their belts: cookbook authors. Bobbi Jo and the Knutsons teamed together to create a cookbook that will spread the love of Scandinavian, German, German Russian and Russian dishes. To fit the unique contents of the collection is

a unique way of presenting them. One half of the cookbook is Scandinavian recipes, but when you flip the book around, the other side has German, German Russian and Russian recipes. Within these pages, you can find about 200 recipes, accompanied by some handwritten recipe cards, jokes, pictures and proverbs. The passed-down, family recipes mixed in with these personal touches make this cookbook unlike anything you'd ever find at WilliamsSonoma.


On the German side, you will find Durch Deine Gabe (Through Thy Bounty). The recipes in this portion were collected by Bobbi Jo from her Great Grandma Remboldt of Gackle, N.D., as well as from a bushel of Kriegar, Schaffer, Remmick, Zenker and Obenauer folks, just to name a few. Many of these recipes were served for holidays and special occasions. Now flip the book over and find the Scandinavian portion called Our Scandinavian Heritage and Farm Family Favorite Recipes. This selection is based on generations of family cooks, beginning with the Knutson's Grandma Lee, born in 1888, and continuing with their mother Dorothy. Extended family members also contributed recipes for this cookbook, bringing

quite the variety of tastes and preferences together. These women were raised on great cooking and enjoyed countless meals around the family table, which makes their decision to bring together this selection of eats feel so natural. "Our mother Dorothy and our sister is Jennifer are the cooks of the family now, they are the brains and the hands behind everything," said Pernelle. Paulette echoed this by saying, "They were the ones who selected the majority of the recipes." "Many families celebrate multiple cultures, as they may have had ancestors from a variety of places around the world," said Bobbi Jo. "We know that many people love to cook. They like local and they like a North Dakota

connection. People also enjoy eating delicious tasting food. This cookbook features recipes from two of the largest immigrant groups in North Dakota."

When to get it

Early November (Just in time for the holidays!)

Where to get it

Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcases throughout the State of North Dakota, The Red Silo in Downtown Fargo, Amazon.com and at WildMoonSalsa.com.

Whether you spend copious amounts of time in the kitchen or prefer pre-made meals, this book is made to be user friendly to all ranges of culinary abilities. The Knutson sisters said, "They are made with common ingredients and use clear directions. As our mom says, 'Cooking takes experience and practice, and above all, it should be fun!'" They noted that their older relatives did so much cooking every day and became so experienced that they did not require extensive directions, but you can still count on these recipes to be very accessible.

DIGS DOWN TO BUILD UP

In November 1930, in the midst of an economic depression, George M. Black was so confident in the future of Fargo, North Dakota, that he planned, financed, and built the tallest building in the state at the time. As The Forum reported then, hundreds of community members gathered to watch the cornerstone be laid at 118 Broadway, for the eight-story tower of commerce. For decades, retailers and office dwellers thrived in the building, which was referred to as a masterpiece of modern architecture.

On September 12, 2018, construction kicked-off on the 18-story mixed-use Block 9 tower at the corner of Second Avenue North and Broadway in downtown Fargo. The project comes with a central community plaza; a place where all are invited to spend time, relax, and enjoy the city.

Now, 88 years after the construction of the Black Building, hundreds of people again gathered at the Block 9 site to celebrate a building milestone in vibrant downtown Fargo. A party was held in the plaza, with the goal of giving people the experience of what the plaza will hold when it’s fully open for public use in the fall of 2020:


Fargo citizens gather downtown to celebrate the breaking ground of Block 9 on September 12th

Block 9 will include an 18-story mixed-use tower (including office space, boutique hotel, residential condos and retail businesses), a community plaza for public use and a 379-stall parking garage.

Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney joined local civic and business leaders to break ground on Block 9.

It’s taken 10 years of planning and hard work on behalf of so many partners to get here. But the real foundation making this project possible is you, Fargo. Just as the Sears Roebuck store made the Black Building possible in 1930, R.D. Offutt Company is the cornerstone of Block 9. Scott Neal, President of R.D. Offutt’s real estate division, told the crowd at the ground breaking that his company had several options to consider with its growth plan.

“Moving to a hub city makes good business sense,” Neal said. “We wanted to keep our roots here in North Dakota; specifically, in Fargo. R.D. Offutt Company will continue to invest and hire and grow in this area.”

Design Partner Brian Lee of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) said, “Fargo is the future of great American mid-sized cities, representing a rich heritage and quality of life while fostering the opportunity to create a new urban story.”

“Adventurers willing to explore the largest city in North Dakota will find an underappreciated art scene, incredible craft beer and cider and friendly locals in this off-the-beaten-path destination.”

Washington Post “You’re going where? Fargo”

Aparium Hotel Group doesn’t create hotels in cities they don’t fall in love with. After exploring local flavor through places like Wild Terra Cidery, Prairie Roots Food Cooperative and Young Blood Coffee Co., the Aparium team fell for Fargo. They discovered talented, hard-working people who care about their community and are making an impact.

“Locals are quick to credit their forebears — the Scandinavian settlers who depended on each other to raise barns, harvest crops and recover from floods. That same work ethic, dynamism and community support help a new generation of makers, entrepreneurs and artists who dream big and often succeed.”

We can’t wait to add Aparium’s hospitality experience to downtown Fargo.

Livability “Can We Talk About How Cool Fargo Is?”

Financing institutions support this project because they see the momentum building in downtown Fargo. They see entrepreneurs taking risks to turn their dreams into community treasures, new jobs and unique experiences.

It's no coincidence that huge numbers of young people are moving to Fargo, eager to take advantage of the small-but-growing city's energy — and affordability.” The Block 9 Partners are full of gratitude to the Fargo community for the opportunity to build a new piece of the downtown skyline.

Just because it’s October and we’re creeping closer to Halloween - ghouls, costumes and frights - oh my! - you don’t have to be afraid of some spookygood fall style. For a big Halloween candy bowl teeming with easy and fun style insight you know who to call (NOT Ghost Busters!) – me! Get ready men, your style is about to be sharper than one of Dracula’s fangs. Let’s take a moment to highlight a very special word: dapper. Raise your hand if you know the definition of that word. If you just raised your hand, how would you describe “dapper”? If you said, “of a man, neat and trim in dress and appearance,” you are correct! (By the way, is that oxforddictionaries.com pulled up on your phone?) Looking polished and put together is vital to successful business meetings, first dates, social gatherings and frankly, even how you feel about and carry yourself.

HEALTH & WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT

hungry

or just

unhappy? BY C.J. English

I tell my clients all the time that in order to lose weight, you have to change your mindset. You have to re-wire your thinking, change your relationship with food, ask yourself why you eat and most importantly you have to find happiness. Every diet will help you to lose weight if you follow it. But what happens when you go off of it and back to your life? That’s when your old habits creep back. You have not done the hard work of re-wiring how you think about food or changing your lifestyle which was the root cause of your weight gain in the first place. Losing weight is the easy part; keeping it off is immeasurably more difficult because it requires you to incorporate one major factor overlooked in your previous diet plan: Happiness. 48 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

I have coached hundreds of clients along their weight loss journey and taken note of common threads among those that are successful and those who are not. One factor stands out among those who meet their goals: they are truly, intrinsically, happy. Happy with their lives, with their lifestyle, in their relationships, with who they are as a person, what they are pursuing as a career etc... They might not have been that way on day one when they came in wanting help to lose weight, but on day 300 they have made the right changes that have moved them into a more pleasant state of being. Without this happiness factor firmly in place, I have yet to see anyone be successful in their long term wellness and weight loss goals.* Each of us goes through bouts of the blues at times. Not being happy for a short period of time is normal. What’s not normal is to never come out of that state, to live in a perpetual cycle of discontent. It is those individuals who do not reach their weight loss goals, long term. The key here is working with the hand you’ve been dealt, no matter how crummy your cards. We must always be doing something to better our situation and move toward being happier. If not—long term permanent weight loss may continue to elude you, no matter what diet you try or how many times you go to the gym each week. Happiness matters. Before I take on a new client I’m always evaluating if I’m the right fit for this person or if they would do better off seeing a counselor first. I do this because my experience is that people generally know what to do in order to lose weight. When someone has a lot of stress or an unhappy life situation, knowing what to do for weight loss isn’t the real problem, it’s the stress and unhappiness that got them there and continues to hold them back. Unless those factors are addressed, any weight loss will generally only be temporary. If you feel like you


If you want to know more about losing weight by not dieting or going to the gym check out C.J.’s bestselling weight loss book, "WTF Am I Supposed to Eat? A Dieter’s Manifesto," available online through Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Wal-Mart and other book retailers. cjenglishauthor.com

might fall into this category, consider going to a licensed processional clinical counselor before trying another diet. Talking to someone to help solve some of the unhappy situations in your life will go a lot further than eating more protein at this point. If I have someone I’m working with who is generally a happy person who has their lifestyle together, but has used food to fill moments of discontent, I will ask them to make a list of "things that make me happy." I require them to go home and think long and hard about what makes up that list and to keep this statement in mind: "no-one and no-thing can make me happy. I have to figure that out by myself." While I want the things on their happiness lists to include traveling or scuba diving, these such items that require time, other people and money should not make up more than one quarter of their list. To overcome eating when you’re not hungry, you must come up with a list of things you can do when you’re alone that do not require anyone else or an unreasonable amount money. Your list must also encompass things that can be done at all hours of the day and night. You’re not always going to feel like taking a walk or reading a book. So when you’re trolling the kitchen at eleven at night about to eat out of boredom, you can stop yourself, refer to your list, remind yourself that you are no longer going to use food to make you happy, you are going to find other things. Or in this case, just go to bed.

Here are some of the things on my own personal happiness list. • Take the dogs for a walk and listen to a book on tape • Write about something that matters • Fundraise for the rescue, help plan an event, give back, make a difference • Go to the bookstore or library • Meditate • Turn on your favorite music and do yoga • Go to the gym • Enroll in a free community class/ teach a community class • Go visit someone

• Pick weeds from the garden with headphones on or plant a new tree, shrub or flower seeds • Teach the kids how to play the piano/ learn how to play guitar • Drink wine on the patio/drink wine on the porch/drink wine and write down all the words that describe it • Look through the dictionary and make a list of words I like • Clean the house • Organize the Tupperware • Do a DIY project

As I’ve fine-tuned my list, I’ve crossed off the items that no longer make me happy or have a tendency to make me angry. I have also not listed some things that make me very happy, but that I can’t do on a random Wednesday night like hike the Suicide Peaks in Alaska or snorkel in Maui. If you put some time into figuring out the small things in life that make you happy and do them instead of eating, you can train yourself to be happier and thus… healthier. *I’m not saying that if you have not been successful in reaching your weight loss goals that you are an unhappy person. The opposite may be true. Over indulging in happy hour beginning at four and ending at eleven might very well be a factor. If that is you, I have a different lesson for another time.


CULINARY SPOTLIGHT

In the kitchen of one of Watson's classes at Minnesota State's Culinary Arts program

By Eric Watson Photos by Alexandra Martin 50 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


culinary education You Get Out What You Put In

I

graduated culinary school in 1997. It seems like just yesterday to me, but I’m sure my cooks see me as the old guy in the kitchen nowadays. After school, I spent three years in a culinary apprenticeship program that allowed me to experience a wide variety of kitchens and chef personalities. One of the issues with a formal culinary school format nowadays is that they often lack the “real life” experience needed to succeed in the restaurant industry. A controlled cooking lab can certainly provide a great learning experience, but oftentimes leaves a student lacking a basic understanding of a professional chef's daily expectations. The truth is: the culinary industry is not as much about being trendy and cool as much as it is about turning a profit and staying in business. It doesn’t do much good to serve the coolest food in town if you not able to make payroll next month. Recently, my wife and I took on a whole new career venture. Rather than continuing to run restaurants day-today, we are now looking into teaching others how to. I will be the first to admit that the difference in managing a crew of cooks in a restaurant and teaching a classroom full of students is tremendous.

The daily expectations are nowhere near the same from the student or the chef. In a restaurant, I pay folks to come to work. I have a legitimate expectation that they will follow my repetitive routine day in and day out with the understanding that they may someday be the next in line for a sous chef position. In a classroom, however, the student is “technically” paying my salary. My how the tables have turned! My wife Sara and I are trying to think outside the box and create a culinary program that bridges the gap of traditional culinary education with an apprenticeship format. We are trying to lay out the textbook information and theory side-by-side with our own experiences. Oftentimes, our own experiences suggest that the text book is just plain wrong. Other times, the text book suggests that Sara and I were operating inefficiently. We want to lay it all out there for the students to consider. We’d also prefer that they graduate with a modest sized set of solid skills, as opposed to a vast variety of fragmented notions and techniques.

want to have a fun and somewhat gentle experience while in school. I realize that college isn’t supposed to be a job, but I also have an old school mindset that you’re supposed to push yourself to be exceptional at work and at school. Culinary school is often seen as a way to pursue a career of glamour and trendy cooking techniques. It's seen as a way to secure a sweet gig at a top rated restaurant in a cool, urban environment. When in fact, our job as an instructor is to prepare you for the inevitable butt kicking you will be receiving once you walk out those doors. If we don’t prepare you for that, then we have failed miserably. I’d like to think Sara and I will be doing just that. Providing our students with information, tools and opportunity. What the student choose to do with it is up to them. We hope to continue serving the culinary community for many years to come. Just in a different capacity.

Our new job is a delicate balance of being just firm enough to provide a realistic experience of what may lie ahead with the understanding that they also

Boasting different theme nights for each day, including Pride Night, Latina Night and Afro Night, owner Ritchell Aboah said, "We want to give everyone a place they can come to where they can say, 'this is for me.'"

Q&A ABOUT MICA

I'm originally from Georgia and I came here to Fargo for more opportunities. It's a very competitive market there, so I wanted a new start. I started bartending here at Awake by just walking in and deciding I loved the scene, I loved the vibe of everything. I've been bartending here since July, so it's been a lot of training and a fast paced environment, but I like it a lot.

WHATS THE BARTENDING EXPERIENCE LIKE AT AWAKE?

I started bartending here. I had always thought about bartending, but I wasn't sure if the lifestyle would be for me. But when I got here I just loved the vibe and wanted to start serving people and getting to know more people in the community here. We get different customers every single night so you meet all sorts of people that I never would have met before. The theme nights help bring in different people each night.

FAVORITE PART

I love meeting the people. They get so comfortable with you and you learn a lot about them. When they come back it's like, "oh it's my regular from last time!" and you have more to talk about, like asking about their kids and whatnot. I also get to open up more about myself and make those back and forth connections. To me, the most important part is meeting all sorts of people I might not have been able to meet before.

MOST POPULAR DRINKS LATELY

Our crowd loves Sex on the Beach, Long Islands, and Alaskan Teas.

ABOUT THIS DRINK

This is the Ghostbuster, perfect for the Halloween season! We put Pop Rocks around the rim and then we have blue curacao, banana and vodka.

The Closer to Spirits

S

he’s a mother, she’s a Long Island native, she’s a New York Times best-selling author and she’s...a medium? Since its debut in 2011, TLC’s Long Island Medium and its charismatic, big-haired star Theresa Caputo have become household names. Running 8 seasons strong, the show follows Caputo throughout her home of Hicksville, N.Y. and features her doing readings on clients and, often, readings on anyone who passes her by. As a medium, she connects with spirits of the passed on and shares messages from beyond. She will be bringing her clairvoyant skills here to Scheels Arena on November 7 for her popular tour, “Theresa Caputo Live! The Experience.” We got to speak with her about her special gift and what to expect out of her live show experience.

Q A

Have you ever been to Fargo before? I have, I was there for another live show. The shows are always different though. You never know what to expect when Spirit is around. I always say to people that the only thing you can expect when you come to a live show is that it’s going to be like watching Long Island Medium... but without shopping. It’s strictly me channeling people. The tour is in large spaces, but I am so proud of the intimate moments that we have been able to create. I come out on stage, I give about a 10 minute speech and then Spirit will guide me around. I am not on that stage. I am in the crowd right in front of you, delivering messages. We also have cameras following me and screens set up so you can follow me around this amazing experience.

Theresa Caputo Brings Her Live Tour to Fargo


Spirit is going to take them on an emotional rollercoaster of being able to feel their loved ones. They can feel the grief, the sorrow or even the pain, but in the same breath Spirit is going to give us the gift of laughter. Spirit is going to give us the validation that there is more to life than just the physical world. That souls are still with us. I want everyone to know that they have that connection with their loved one. Those little things that go on around them that remind them of the loved one, I want them to know that that is a direct connection. They're not crazy, it’s not their imagination. It is truly the soul of their loved one letting them know they are still with them.

Q A

Q A

What's it like bringing your show across the country and going on tour? What's your favorite part? My favorite part is that I get to meet my fans in person. They get to see Spirit channel live. I have the most amazing fans and I love and appreciate every one of them. They understand and they get it. Because of my gift, it has helped them to embrace and to live life a little easier. Life is hard and nothing is easy, but by sharing certain messages from Spirit, it hopefully can make it easier to embrace life with happiness and joy. You mentioned having wonderful fans all across the country. What’s it been like becoming such an icon in this field that has come more to the mainstream in recent years? It's insane. I still look around like no one knows who I am. It’s crazy that I go places and I’m like, "you know who I am?" That's so weird to me! I forget sometimes that I have a reality show. During Long Island Medium, I’m still living my life, nothing has changed. The only thing is that there are cameras. I’m still living life like Theresa Caputo has lived her life. It’s such a blessing, and to be able to take that live is really incredible.

Q A

With that attention, I'm sure you're used to the skeptics and people trying to stump you. How do you respond to this? Honestly, I don't pay attention to that. It's someone's opinion and everyone has the right to their own opinion. And I get it. I’m the first one to say that what I do is crazy. But I know what is happening to me. I know that I am sensing and feeling things that have no effect on me, but are lifechanging to someone else. This isn’t about people believing in what I do. It doesn't matter if people believe in a medium. What I want people to do is believe in themselves and to know that their loved ones are with them and that they still have that bond with the souls of their loved ones.

Q A

In regards to the criticism and skeptics, you easily could have kept this gift to yourself. Why did you decide to embrace it and share it to such a wide arena? You have to understand, I’ve been sensing and feeling Spirit since I was four. For me, I thought it was normal. I thought everyone was feeling what I was feeling. I was never able to express as a child what I was sensing and feeling. It wasn't until later in my 20’s that I discovered that not only was I connecting with my old loved ones, but with other people's loved ones too. After I learned to embrace that, I was like, who’s gonna want to come talk to a medium? Who’s gonna wanna talk to their dead relative? I couldn’t understand that. But what I learned from my experiences is that not matter who we lose or how they die, we are left with a burden and guilt. In the physical world we are left with these shoulda coulda wouldas and the what-ifs that hinder the ability to heal. Coming to my live shows, you will experience Spirit validating to us that they don't want us to carry these negative emotions. They want us to release these burdens and guilt and embrace life with happiness and joy.

THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL

BY Dr. Corina Todoran

corina

A Multicultural Learner and Educator Esteemed Readers: Someone once told me that if you want to be successful and achieve great things in life, you have to surround yourself with achievers and successful people. This month I am introducing to you Dr. Corina Todoran, who came to NDSU by way of Romania. For those that know the long journey that graduate school can be, Corina has managed to surf through these academic years, juggling numerous roles on campus. I know that I wouldn’t have been as involved on and off campus, had I not seen Corina do it while getting her PhD. I kept on repeating to myself that if Corina could do it I should at least try to emulate her level of engagement. Visualization is an essential step in achieving monumental goals of life and this is why I feel honored and privileged to have crossed the path of Corina during the 2016 NDSU homecoming parade that I met her at. I was just embarking on my 56 | OCTOBER 2018 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

graduate school journey and she proved to be a great example to me. She is the crossroad of world diplomacy, academic excellence, servant leadership and global citizenship…all in one person. She is a globe trotter and to those of us who cannot travel as frequently as she does, she makes those of us fortunate enough to call her friend feel a part of her travel via her numerous stories and pictures from these voyages. Between conferences for her multicultural education PhD research work to traveling for leisure, she provides a lot of this! Romania is fortunate to have her represent its rich culture, NDSU is fortunate to count her as a proud alumna and I really hope that an employer in the Fargo/Moorhead area will recruit her and keep her here. She really helps make the world feel like a smaller and more understanding place! Cheers! -Alex Cyusa

Why did you come to Fargo?

As a teenager and young adult, I have always been passionate about learning and traveling. I studied foreign languages while in high school and have visited a number of European countries. I always thought about the U.S. as one of the most fascinating countries and dreamed to have a chance to see it. So, after I finished my Master’s back in Romania I applied for a Ph.D. degree at NDSU and started this exciting journey. I came to Fargo in 2013 to start my doctoral degree in the NDSU School of Education. I recently graduated and it’s bittersweet to leave the campus because I have really enjoyed my time as part of this community.

What's it like looking like the majority population, yet feeling like an outsider?

Even before coming to Fargo I was told that winters are cold and long, and after my arrival I kept hearing people talking about this as the dominant feature of the FM area. Now I understand why I was warned about Fargo winters, and even though I must admit I still don’t like living in a cold place, I discovered many other positives that enhanced my stay in this


area. Although the population here is mainly homogeneous, I noticed the diversity of perspectives shaping this community. I have interacted with many international students and faculty and we often share our stories about what it means to live and study in a foreign country. In fact, these conversations led to my interest in studying international doctoral students’ experiences in the U.S. academic, social, and cultural settings. Twenty-five international students shared with me their unique life stories and my hope is that this research is valuable for the FM community as well. Back to my own journey, I must say that I have never experienced direct discrimination and I was always glad to share with the community the beauty of my home country, Romania. However, after my arrival here, I realized I was part of a minority. I had never felt like that before. At a first glance, I look like the mainstream population, but each time I begin to speak and people hear I have an accent, the next question is “Where are you from?” I didn’t have a very hard time getting used to that, but at first I admit it felt like a handicap. Eventually I got used to it and I enjoyed seeing that people were interested in knowing more about my story. I am aware that I am an outsider, but I have always felt nurtured and appreciated for who I am and that has always brought a smile on my face and an increasing self-confidence.

What are your hopes and visions for Fargo-Moorhead area?

I think the FM area keeps evolving and I am pleased to see a variety of events and initiatives enhancing the experiences of this community. Indeed, the weather is not always friendly, but people here are extremely

nice and kind, and this is what really matters and makes it a safe and great place.

How have your NDSU years shaped you?

Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all the opportunities and people I have met here. I am so thankful that I have been exposed to a variety of people who are diverse from different standpoints such as nationality, religion, culture, socio-economic status and sexual orientation and, more importantly, I had the chance to know them deeply. Back home such opportunities were limited. I believe it is not only important to be exposed to diversity, but we should also be a pivotal factor of change. We should address and celebrate diversity in all its forms. Also, it is essential to understand that as foreigners, we become ambassadors of our home countries. Living and studying here over the past five years has been a transformative journey for me. This experience has shaped who I am, both personally and professionally.

Hands-On

Cooking Classes for All Skill Levels

Why do you still call Fargo "home?"

I just graduated in August, so I'm still figuring where I want to land. And even though I might choose to move elsewhere later, Fargo has been my home away from home and I hope to be able to stay here. It is not easy to live far away from family and friends. I had to adapt and accept that it was my own decision to study abroad. I thus focused all my energy on my degree, the classes I taught, my research and other leadership activities to keep my mind busy. I believe that people here have made this experience smoother for me and I feel I am a valued member of this community.

Barking Up Fun with Downtown Dogs

R

achel Mrozinski works for US Bank by day, but after-hours she is the face behind "Downtown Dogs." In 2016, as a new dog owner and a new resident of Fargo, Mrozinski was inspired to start the Downtown Dogs club as a way to meet new people for herself and to meet new dogs for her furry companion. With the help of her lab Quincy, Mrozinski started Downtown Dogs to engage and make a difference in the community, not only by providing fun experiences and places to create friendships, but also to be able to use these connections to fundraise for local shelters and groups to help dogs and cats in need.

"My favorite part is constantly meeting new people and instantly connecting with them over our love of dogs. I also love that it is a supportive and caring community of people," said Mrozinski. If you have an active dog, you know it's never fun to go to an empty dog park. With Downtown Dogs's weekly meet-ups, you are guaranteed to have a variety of playmates for your pooch to frolic with. All dogs big or small, old or young are welcome and it creates the perfect opportunity to socialize your pup. Surrounded by fellow dog-lovers, it can be a great time to socialize yourself as well.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND RACHEL AND DOWNTOWN DOGS

?

Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. at Dike East Dog Park facebook.com/pg/DowntownDogsFargo @downtowndogsfargo

The Last Page is a space to highlight community members of all ages who are helping to create the culture in the Fargo-Moorhead area, making it such a wonderful place to live.
