SOCIETY LIKE THOUSANDS OF ST. LOUISANS, I’M STILL BASKING in the afterglow of one Sir Paul McCartney, who, just days ago, gave us the concert of a lifetime. I find myself humming the songs, usually in the set-list order of last Sunday’s concert. Well, there actually is an explanation for that: Scientists at Georgetown University recently revealed that there’s a part of the brain capable of learning a new musical sequence, while another part retains that information—and this applies to all music, not just the Fab Four. So this explains why, after hearing Taxman, many longtime Beatles fans expect to hear Eleanor Rigby next, thanks to the quintessential Revolver album. For Springsteen fans, that means Glory Days has to be followed by Dancing in the Dark. See, your mind wasn’t really playing tricks on you.


29 THE FANCIEST CARS Have you ever woken up to a shiny, beautiful car sitting in the driveway topped with a big red bow and your significant other standing there, jingling the keys? Whether it’s a 2013 Rolls-Royce or a classic Ford Thunderbird, these local car dealers could help your holiday dreams come true.

IN FINE STYLE To sleep, perchance to dream…not a problem in these two well-designed boudoirs! Holly Blumeyer and her husband, Jeff Demerath, are in the process of remodeling a charming home in the Warson Woods area. They purchased the home in 2009; and after major renovation, moved into their new digs last year.

OVER-THE-TOP GIFTS From fine jewelry and luxurious gowns to sleek sports cars and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, some of our favorite department store catalogs have just the right extravagant gift to awe your favorite person this holiday season.

Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis



ROM 2006 TO 2009, NOT A SINGLE woman in a G-rated film was portrayed as a doctor, business leader, lawyer or politician, according to a study by the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. In fact, the study concluded that women are outnumbered 3-to-1 by men in family movies. And when they are included, women are more likely to be donning ‘sexy’ clothes and have an unrealistic figure. The study was commissioned by Geena Davis, an Academy Award winner best known for her roles in Thelma and Louise and A League of Their Own. Davis noticed a disparity of women in film while watching shows with her young daughter—a disparity that the Annenberg study confirmed— and later started the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. The actress will be in St. Louis on Wednesday, Nov. 28, to speak on changing that trend at ‘Making A Difference: Women, Girls and the Media,’ the largest annual fundraiser for Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis. “The hope is that we’ll raise some awareness, and people will start watching shows a little more critically, rather than just assuming this is

how things are—because it’s not,” says Women’s Foundation president Pat Rich. The foundation, one of 160 around the world that make up the Women’s Funding Network, raises awareness of women’s issues and supports nonprofits that make life better for women and girls. “The Women’s Foundations were started because the percentage of foundation money going directly to women and girls is less than 8 percent,” she notes, adding that while the local chapter’s funding stays within the St. Louis metropolitan area, there are chapters from “the Midwest to Mongolia” supporting women’s issues. In many cases, that means working to help raise women and girls out of poverty and help them become self-sustaining, as well as making sure they have a chance for an education and tackling difficult issues, including sex trafficking and assault. According to national studies, the chance of a disabled woman being sexually assaulted is between 65 and 85 percent. The Women’s Foundation helped fund a study led by the YWCA to discern the prevalence of this problem in the St. Louis community and find ways to deal with it. As a result of the study, “Both the city and county are funding efforts to train staff to start working

Music Man Persons of Interest: Steve Schankman


HEN I ASKED STEVE Schankman to describe himself in one sentence, he answered, “I’m the music man of St. Louis.” It seemed it would have been difficult for Schankman to narrow it down to just one sentence. He is not a man of few words—and neither are his accomplishments. Music has always been at the center of his life. His father played in the Symphony, his grandfather was a musician, and so is Schankman’s son. Schankman would probably be OK if people knew him only as a trumpet player in the Fabulous Motown Revue, but of course, he is so much more. Schankman built an empire and made millions as an event and concert producer and promoter. He’s worked with everyone from Mick Jagger to Pope John Paul II. He built Contemporary Productions into one of the largest entertainment producers in the nation before he sold it for a reported $90 million. Since then, he re-launched a new Contemporary with more a focused agenda.



NOVEMBER 16, 2012 {}

He still finds himself working with some of the biggest names in the business, but his new role and new company give him more time for important things, like playing his horn at charity fundraisers and producing other events that raise money for good causes. “We’re still booking entertainment,” he says. “But most of what we do today are events with a purpose.” In addition to helping charities and institutions raise millions, Schankman has donated millions himself, including personally writing the check that paid for the enormous, oneof-a-kind, metal animal sculpture that frames a corner of the Saint Louis Zoo. At 64 years old, Schankman isn’t slowing down a bit; and if you ask him what he has in the works, he could talk for hours. He also still loves to talk about the long road that brought him to where he is today. He started his own band when he was 13, but soon started making money booking gigs for other local bands. Before he graduated from University City High School in 1966, he was making a name as a promoter. “I had a company called Sound Productions, and I worked out of my parent’s house,” he recalls. “I had a desk in

the living room, with a reel-to-reel tape recorder, some files and a telephone.” In 1968, he took his game to a new level. He had gotten his band, called The Impact Soul Review, a gig as the warm-up act for The Temptations at Kiel Auditorium. He says that night, it all clicked for him. “I was standing on the stage and looking out and seeing 10,000 people. The tickets were $5. So I figured with 10,000 people, that’s 50-grand,” he notes. “I knew The Temptations were getting about $15,000, so I figured that even with all the expenses, somebody was making a lot of money. The next year, I brought in the Grateful Dead at the Fox Theatre.” Schankman and business partner Irv Zuckerman somehow pulled it off, avoiding disaster when the Dead were arrested just before their planned stop in St. Louis. “The band was in New Orleans and got busted for drugs. All of the band’s equipment was shipped to us by cargo, so a few of us set it up at the Fox,” he recalls. “But the band didn’t get there until 6 o’clock, right before the concert, because they had just gotten out of jail.” Later, Contemporary caught the attention of a New York agent named Frank Barcelona who Continued on page 60

ALISON REILLY & ANDREW MENATTI Dr. and Mrs. William Reilly of Ladue and Barbara Reilly of Chicago are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Alison Renee Reilly, to Andrew Roberts Menatti, son of Charles and Karen Menatti of Herndon, Va. The bride-to-be graduated from Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School in 2003 and Boston College in 2007 with a B.A. in psychology. Currently, Alison is a Ph.D. student at Ohio University. The future groom graduated from University of Virginia in 2008 with a B.A. in psychology and foreign affairs. He is a Ph.D. student at Ohio University. Alison and Andrew met at Ohio University when he was interviewing for admission to the clinical psychology Ph.D. program. Alison, who was a first-year student in the program, voted in his favor. They began dating a few months later, and became engaged the following year at a bed and breakfast in Charlottesville, Va. They are planning a December 31 ceremony at Church of the Annunziata, with a reception to follow at Old Warson Country Club. Following a honeymoon at The Ritz-Carlton on the island of St. Thomas, they will reside in Athens, Ohio.

I think that’s a terrible shame. I have always loved Thanksgiving— so homey, so loving and so appropriate. Growing up, I remember my mother wrestling the biggest turkey she could find. She would wash that thing and go over every centimeter of it with a darning needle (looking for non-existent pin feathers). Even after an hour of acupuncture, the bird would be in the oven by 8 o’clock in the morning, filling the house with wonderful smells. The dozens of relatives who walked in the door would be handed a drink, something to nibble on before the feast, and usually, a baby—it was heaven on earth. A tradition we had in our family was that after the meal, we would have to stand up and tell all that we were grateful for. Mother always said all fine men and women had to have grateful hearts. (She did not terrorize that turkey for us not to be fine men and women.) I’m not sure how fine I am, but I do have a grateful heart. Having a business—and keeping it successful—is all about relationships. Through our shop and this column, I have made hundreds, maybe thousands, of wonderful relationships. Being able to help a bride achieve her dream wedding, or to calm a nervous mother, who is afraid she might spend too much—or even to have the honor of telling a beautiful young lady right before she walks down the aisle that I wish her a lifetime of happiness—these and a million other ‘special’ moments are what I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving and always. If I, through this column, helped a nervous father know the right things to say when giving the wedding toast—that, my friends, is a priceless gift. Walking through the grocery store and being stopped by someone who tells me that I was spot-on about some detail of a wedding—or just that they enjoy reading this column—is about the most perfect thing that could happen. I work for the salary, but I love the applause. I’m very grateful to live in a very nice world, filled with very nice people—people I have developed a relationship with. This is my soul food, and I want to thank you for that. I hope that through my work at Ladue News or in our shop, I’ve enlightened a few people about the importance of etiquette, courtesy and manners, all of which make our world a nicer place to live. I want to thank you for your loyal support of ‘our’ paper, your kind support of Ken Miesner’s, but mostly, for the gift of your treasured friendship. Thank you so very much. I hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving—and please, mind your manners!

Cellar Highlights


OME OF THE CITY’S EXCLUSIVE RESTAUrant wine cellars have been opened to reveal their most prized bottles of wine. Take a look at these cellar highlights, as well as their dining accompaniment recommendations. Tony’s Most prized wine: Among more than 200 wines in Tony’s cellar, Vince Bommarito says Italian Barolo stands out from the rest. The full-bodied blend from Piedmont—one of the two major wine areas in Italy—is made from grapes grown in some of the best soil in the world, he notes. “They say Barolo is the wine of kings and the king of wines.” Pair it with this: Bommarito says to splurge on a meal fit for Barolo. “While you’re having a sirloin steak or a veil chop—that’s when you drink your Barolo.”

Il Bel Lago Most prized wine: Gaja Ca Marcanda Magari is a top-of-the-line offering at Il Bel Lago. The

Italian wine, which runs $110 a bottle, is a dense red, boasting of concentrated plum and blackberry flavors. “We are partial to Italian wines because it is our family heritage,” Carmelo Gabriele says. “Italy has some of the oldest wine producers in the world, and it is one of the largest wine producers in the world—second only to France.” Ranked as a No. 91 on Wine Spectator, the unique wine is referred to as a Super Tuscan, meaning it does not have to adhere to traditional blending laws and often uses grapes that are not in the region. Pair it with this: “This is a fine red wine, so it goes great with a nice filet or veil chop,” Gabriele says. Annie Gunn’s Most prized wine: The most exciting wines on Annie Gunn’s list are five vintage Missouri Norton offerings from the nation’s oldest family-owned winery in the nation: Adam Puchta Winery in Hermann. “The luxury to me is that my cellar is an hour’s drive from all of these great Missouri

Carmelo Gabriele holds Il Bel Lago’s most prized bottle of wine: Gaja Ca Marcanda Magari.

wineries. I really like to support what we do in the state,” Glenn Bardgett says. The full-flavored red wine runs $45 to $65 a bottle. “We have wines that cost up to $2,000,” Bardgett says. “But it’s not about how expensive it is; it’s about how distinctive it is.” Pair it with this: This cellar highlight will perfectly complement any red meat, Bardgett says. “And it really goes extraordinarily well with lamb.”

St. Louis Motorsports Recently, a longtime client of St. Louis Motorsports called the dealership with a request. He was looking for a red-on-tan Maserati convertible for his wife for Christmas. The sales department found the car on the West Coast through its dealer network; and it will arrive in St. Louis just in time for the holidays. It is just one of the ways the luxury car dealer can help customers find their dream automobile for the gift-giving season. With seven ultra-luxury brands available— Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Maserati, Lamborghini, Lotus and Bugatti—St. Louis Motorsports offers some of the most impressive cars available in the world. It has some 50 cars in inventory at any given time, in a range of colors and finishes to appeal to a variety of customers. “Offering the right color combination is extremely important,” explains general sales manager Ryan Dohogne. “We want to have that special car in our inventory that a customer will fall in love with when they see it on the showroom floor, and it becomes a must-have.” The Chesterfield dealer’s current inventory includes a 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Series II, available for $509,000—one of three white Rolls-Royces used in the Olympic closing ceremonies this summer. Another standout is a 2013 Bentley Continental GT Convertible for $237,000. Finished in blue crystal over magnolia hides, with Tamo Ash veneers, the car is one of only five offered in the U.S. in that color combination. While the majority of St. Louis Motorsports’ sales take place through the available inventory, the dealership can accommodate a client’s specific preferences. It can acquire a particular car, as was done for the red Maserati convertible, or help build a custom automobile. “A client can spend 5

ABOVE: 2013 Bentley Continental GT Convertible at St. Louis Motorsports RIGHT: 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Series II at St. Louis Motorsports

minutes or make five visits to us to complete their car, from color palate to fabrics and veneers,” Dohogne says. “It’s becoming a trend that clients will take the time to build a truly bespoke automobile. It’s usually a celebration purchase, whether it’s a retirement, anniversary or holiday gift, and it can be as personal as the customer desires.”

Classic Car Studio As Classic Car Studio worked to restore a 1940 Plymouth, the car’s owner often visited to see the progress. The car was originally owned by the client’s grandfather, and she had fond memories about riding around in it as a child. “She and her mom would come in and they were ecstatic every time they saw the car and how it was coming together,” says Noah Alexander, who owns the studio alongside partners Nick Leidenfrost and Rick Holton. Whether you’re looking for a certain classic car, or have one in your garage that you want restored, Classic Car Studio provides a variety of services for lovers of old automobiles. The Brentwood business buys and sells vintage cars all over the country and around the world, including a rotating inventory of approximately 25 American and European vehicles, with the majority from 1930 through 1970. The other side of the business focuses on complete restorations. “We Continued on page 36

Continued from page 35 take the car completely apart, down to the nuts and the bolts, and restore it from the ground up,” Alexander explains. “Everything is rebuilt so you essentially have a new car—we leave no screw unturned.” A client may have the studio restore an important family car or request a particular type of car for restoration, Alexander notes. “We can go out and procure a car that is a very good restoration candidate and build that car to a client’s exact

specifications.” In the same way, although the studio’s inventory is filled with high-quality vehicles (“For every 20 we look at, we may buy one,” Alexander says), it can search for and acquire a specific classic car that may be on a customer’s wish list. “If we find that car, we may fly out and look at it for them, do the due diligence and ship the car back,” he says. “We’ll find people exactly what they’re looking for.”

But for those looking for a classic car to gift for the holidays, Classic Car Studio has multiple options ready to drive away. A 1947 Cadillac Series 60 Sedan, available for $49,900, is essentially a small limousine and has been restored to its original condition. The current inventory also includes a 1932 Ford Roadster for $55,900, a popular automobile to modify into a hot rod, and a 1955 Ford Thunderbird for $49,900, the classic muscle car.

Ornamental Art The Perfect Scene


he Christopher Radko brand was born after the Radko family’s Christmas tree crashed to the ground, destroying hundreds of keepsake ornaments. Radko promised his mother he would replace them all, but quickly learned there were very few high-quality commercial

ornaments available. Thus, he began to design his own in 1986. And although Radko sold his multimillion-dollar company some years back, his legacy lives on. LN recently talked to Radko artist Joseph Walden about the fine art of designing keepsake glass ornaments and his upcoming visit to Christopher’s in Kirkwood on Nov. 24.

How are the ornaments made? Every ornament is hand-illustrated, then digitally rendered into what we call ‘flat art.’ They are then produced in Europe (primarily in Poland), where artisans make a three-dimensional sculpture, from which a metal ‘mother mold’ is cast using centuries-old techniques. Our glass blowers use this mother mold to mouth-blow each piece of a certain style. Before it is painted, every single ornament is dipped in liquid silver to give it extra sparkle and shine. This is part of what gives Christopher Radko ornaments their particular sparkle. Many people don’t realize that it’s the silver below the lacquer that reflects all those twinkling lights on your tree.


Does the Christopher ‘Radko Partridge in a Pear Tree’ ornament, which sold at auction for more than $2,000, still bear the distinction of being the single-most valuable ornament in the Radko collection, or has it been surpassed? Amazing, isn’t it? You never know which ornament will go on to have legendary status like Partridge in a Pear Tree. Only a limited number of each style is ever produced. Sometimes that means a design, such as Partridge in a Pear Tree, becomes very rare as time goes by, as there are only a certain number in existence. Once we retire an ornament, that design will not be created again.

Is there one ornament for Christmas 2012 that collectors should know about? My fellow Radko artist, Mario Taré, and I choose one design each year that we feel has best captured the detail and craftsmanship that makes the Christopher Radko brand so special. The Perfect Scene, a beautiful piece depicting Santa posing next to a tree overflowing with garland and candy canes, is the Designers’ Choice piece for 2012. It’s not to be missed.

How many new ornaments do you introduce each year, and how many do you retire? The 2012 Collection includes more than 650 unique styles. Roughly 500 of those are new, the rest are carried over from the previous year, based on popularity. We retire more than 75 percent of our annual line after one year on sale.


with Joseph Walden

What’s in store for people attending the Radko event at Christopher’s next week? We’ve designed a special ornament for those in attendance: Worth the Wait will be available only at signing events this year. I’m so happy and very honored to be able to sign Worth the Wait and other ornaments for customers at Christopher’s. And you never know, I may just pick up some great inspiration while we chat!

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda


LU SEASON STARTED EARLY IN ST. LOUIS THIS YEAR. By the end of October, several cases of influenza had been reported. Concerned public health officials advised everyone older than 6 months to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Yet there are plenty of people who reject the flu vaccine. “The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from getting the flu,” says Dr. Tim Pratt, chief medical officer at SSM St. Clare Health Center and a primary-care physician. “There are very few contraindications for individuals not to get the flu shot. Currently, the pneumonia vaccine also is recommended for the 50 and older population.” Seasonal flu vaccines protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although the process of predicting flu strains is not foolproof, the vaccine usually provides a good measure of protection. “Flu seasons are unpredictable in a number of ways. Although epidemics of flu happen every year, the timing, severity and length of the epidemic depends on many factors, including what influenza viruses are spreading, whether they match the viruses in the vaccine, and how many people get the vaccine,” says Linda Maly, manager of infection prevention at St. Luke’s Hospital. People who are allergic to eggs should opt for the nasal spray form of the flu vaccine, which is safe for healthy, non-pregnant people from 2 to 49 years old, rather than the injected vaccine, which may contain very small amounts of egg protein. Aside from this small group of egg-allergic people, the flu vaccine BY CONNIE MITCHELL

Keeping Yourself In-Check


RE VISIONS OF SUGARPLUMS DANCING IN YOUR HEAD yet this holiday season? If you’ve managed to keep the sugarplums in your head and out of your mouth, you’re doing well. For many, the siren call of holiday goodies coupled with the tantalizingly easy access to holiday treats at parties and events is too much to bear—we find ourselves looking in the mirror on Jan. 1 with a few post-holiday pounds around the middle. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and planning is key. “There is a major holiday almost every month of the year. When you’re serious about reaching your goals, you’ll make a way regardless of the time of year; when you’re not, you’ll make excuses,” says Charles D’Angelo, a weight-loss coach and author of Think and Grow Thin. “An important key that’s helped all of my clients reach their goals is replacing spontaneity with strategy. Knowing what to do and doing what they know consistently is key. Temptation is weakened and your willpower is strengthened with a plan that keeps you feeling full and energized.” Scheduling small, frequent meals throughout the day at about three-hour intervals, starting with a healthy breakfast, is one of the suggestions D’Angelo offers for creating a successful weight-loss SHERRI HOYT, dietitian strategy. He also urges people to maintain a regular exercise schedule. Sherri Hoyt, a registered dietitian with Missouri Baptist Medical Center, agrees with D’Angelo and adds, “Exercise helps us reduce stress, and the holidays can certainly be very stressful. Think of it as your time out or your recess—it’s your special time.” Hoyt reminds clients that holiday beverages can be just as fattening as cookies. “I suggest that people eat their calories instead of drinking them,” she says. A five-ounce glass of red wine is about 120 calories, so a single indulgence won’t wreck your diet. A chocolate martini, however, can exceed 450 calories, as much as a small meal. Hoyt is a proponent of sparkling water and tea as drinks to keep in hand without packing on the pounds. Another of Hoyt’s suggestions involves bringing healthy items to holiday potlucks. “Instead of another high-calorie dish, bring a big garden salad for the buffet table,” she says. “And remember, croutons, cheese and bacon don’t grow in the garden.” Filling your party plate with vegetables and lean protein, like cooked shrimp, will keep calories down while filling you up. Hoyt’s final words of wisdom involve the true meaning of the season. “Holiday gatherings are about celebrating with family and friends,” she says. “Focus on the people, not the food. You can’t talk with people when you’re spending all your time eating.”

Balance in the Bedroom





o s l e e p, p e r c h a n c e t o dream…not a problem in these two well-designed boudoirs! Holly Blumeyer, owner of Holly Blumeyer Interior Design Group, and her husband, Jeff Demerath, are in the process of remodeling a charming home in the Warson Woods area. They purchased the home in 2009; and after major renovation, moved into their new digs last year. “When the real estate agent asked me how many

more homes we were going to have to look at, I said None! This is it!” Blumeyer grins. The guest room is the perfect combination of masculine and feminine. The red and white Manuel Canovas fabric on the curtains, chair and custom bedding is the feminine ying to the masculine mahogany wood yang on the casegood pieces. A Stroheim & Romann toile adds a little whimsy on the toss pillows. K’ang-hsi period vases made into lamps add the complementary blue and white to the room. Additional blue and white accents

pull it all together. There is a sense of history and family in this space, as many of the pieces belonged to Blumeyer’s great-grandparents and great aunt. “When I married, my mother sent the slipper chair with me so I have had it all my life,” she says. Also lovers of art, the couple found the pieces that hang above the bed at the Saint Louis Art Fair. Mixing the old with the new is one of the talents Blumeyer does best. The master bedroom is part of Blumeyer’s original vision for the home. This seamless addition

The mahogany inlaid armoire anchors the room and reflects other family pieces, bringing a sense of history to the space.


The branches of a Carvers Guild mirror are reminiscent of the pattern of the F. Schumacher fabric selected for the curtains and bedding.

Detail, detail, detail. From the lampshade to the rushing on the headboard and trim on the toss pillows, attention is paid to every surface and element of this room.

The blue and white garden stool is the perfect scale next to Blumeyer’s slipper chair that has followed her everywhere since she left her childhood

added just the right amount of room to balance the floor plan. By borrowing from some of the original space, and adding the new, what evolved were a bedroom, generous master bath and two separate walk-in closets. A blue and white tweed Stark wool carpet is underfoot and lays the foundation for the striped Thibaut wall-covering that surrounds the space. The bedding and windows are created from a soft blue, cream and light gold pattern that is easy on the eye. On the day of our photo shoot, the

couple’s cat, Mao, maintained his position on top of the bed, clearly used to visitors and being photographed! Instead of a foot board, Blumeyer uses a great aunt’s Italian table with a stone top set in the fashion of pietra dura, in which hard, semi-precious stones are set in a plainer stone to create a pattern: Butterflies swirl around this tabletop. A pair of Chelsea House bedside table lamps found at Brody’s illuminates the masculine and feminine treatment of bedside furniture—an antique chest for him and a luscious skirted table

for her. The writing desk, which is an American antique, was purchased at Ivey-Selkirk years ago when American pieces were just becoming in vogue. “Bruce was so upset that I got it at such a low price,” Blumeyer shares. To which, I respond, “It’s a bargain to a burglar!” remembering one of Mr. Selkirk’s famous lines when items were not bringing the price he had hoped for. This space is serene and sophisticated, the perfect place to start and end each day!

LN LANDSCAPE Sugar and Spice We have just about wrapped up this year’s herb garden, but I still have enough lavender and mint to make Julie’s herbed sugar. For each cup of fresh herbs, measure two cups of white sugar. Wash and dry the herbs. Pick out all stems or woody parts, then bruise the herbs well with a mallet on a cutting board. Crush them until the aroma fills the room, then mix the leaves with the sugar and put them in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake the jar every couple of days and let it mellow for about two weeks. Use mint sugar to make your own peppermint candy. Lavender sugar is awesome in cookie dough. Use it in your favorite cardamom spice cookie recipe or for traditional lemon bars with an herbal twist. Holiday baking will never be the same! One of my favorite spicy flavors is anise, either regular European anise (Pimpinella) or one of the Asian star anises (Illicium). We enjoyed the delicious Turkish Arak while cruising on the Bosporus in May. It is only one of the dozens of anise-flavored liqueurs for holiday quaffing. A friend of mine makes the most wonderful German holiday cookies, pfeffernüsse and springerle, using anise as a key ingredient. Very similar in flavor to licorice, anise is easy to grow in the herb garden.

Spice It Up! ONE OF THE GREATEST JOYS OF HAVING A GARDEN, INDOORS OR out, is to prepare your own delights from the good earth’s bounty. Whether you grow it yourself or get the freshest produce at the local market, nothing makes the holiday season more special than ‘homemade.’ BY PAT RAVEN, PH.D., AND JULIE HESS

It’s All in the Spice! The Honey Crisp apples have been extraordinary this year. The fresh harvest carries with it a stronger perfume than apples that have been stored in the cooler for six months. One crunchy, crisp bite reminds me that autumn is apple pie season. Apples pair well with most traditional baking spices. We are fond of apples with cloves, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom and, perhaps surprisingly, white pepper. Make an easy holiday treat for your neighbors by whipping up some custom apple-pie spices by blending: 1 T cinnamon, 2 t ground nutmeg, 1 t ground cardamom and 1 t ground allspice. Put it in a decorative spice jar and attach a copy of your favorite pie or strudel recipe. Or, follow Julie’s favorite autumn ritual: stud an orange with cloves and simmer it in fresh, local cider, along with a few sticks of cinnamon for a hearty, mulled cider. Top it off with your favorite ‘hot shot’ for a heavenly warm cocktail. Perfect Pears My pear tree has outdone itself this year. It is a very old tree, probably planted about the time the house was built in 1935, and we have no idea what variety it is. It seems to be disease-resistant. I never spray it, and it is self-fruitful unless there is a boyfriend tree hiding in our neighbor’s woods. As an alternate bearing variety, this venerable tree gave us nothing last year, but this year—in spite of such a beastly summer—we have a bumper crop of fruit. It did get regular watering from the irrigation system, but that heat still was brutal for tender young, developing fruits. To enjoy these golden orbs all year, wrap them in newspaper and lay them out in single layers covered with light tissue.

unreliable, secondhand gossip from around the world* DEMI LOVATO The former child star and current X Factor judge got into it with the omnipotent Simon Cowell on the show last week. She criticized Cowell’s creation, the boy band One Direction, saying putting the group together was a mistake. Huh, interesting move on Demi’s part. I mean, I’ve seen careers die before, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen one get whacked.

CHARLIE SHEEN The Anger Management star is being investigated by Los Angeles police after a man claimed Sheen threatened to blow his head off with a shotgun. Sheen apparently texted a mutual friend with the threat, and the friend alerted authorities. I’m sorry. There is something about this story that is patently unbelievable. Anger Management is still on TV?

MADONNA The aging pop star stopped her performance mid-concert on Election Night when it became clear President Obama was going to be reelected. Madge gave the crowd an impassioned speech, thrilled that Obama would be serving four more years...which is odd because she’s normally so private about her politics…

Sleep Deprivation


’M IN A QUANDARY. THERE IS SOMETHING I just don’t understand. Granted it’s not a mystery of the universe, nothing Socrates and Plato would have debated, but still. It literally keeps me up at night. Most things seem aptly named, don’t they? I mean, a bookstore sells books. Little Women is, in fact, about little women. If you name your son Jeeves, he will most likely become a butler. So why on earth do they call it a slumber party? There is no slumber: They don’t slumber, I don’t slumber and I’m fairly certain a few of the neighbors didn’t slumber. So, in an attempt to pay it forward, shall we say, I have a few suggestions for more appropriate names for this auspicious event. You are cordially invited to a: Run-Around-the-Neighborhood-Until-theGrumpy-Neighbor-Calls-the-Police Party Apparently, there is a finite number of times kids can ring your doorbell and run away before you snap. More sympathetic I could not be. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local law enforcement for their restraint in handling what are sure to be several future whitecollar criminals.

TANGENTIAL THINKER Ruin-My-Rug Party This one is self-explanatory. Suffice it to say, it is amazing what spray cheese, Silly String and colored hair spray can do to a cream carpet.

Eat-Everything-in-the-Pantry-at-Four-in-theMorning Party This one actually is a big advantage: I honestly don’t know how they did it. I had a bag of corn chips in there older than one of my kids. The one thing the party isn’t is a slumber party. I guess what I should be calling it is an At-Least-IGot-a-Column-Out-of-It Party...and hopefully, a nap.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular

RATING: 9 out of 10



Returning to their roots in St. Louis, the precision dancing Radio City Rockettes perform a number of familiar fan favorite routines, as well as sprinkle in a couple of new bits to herald the holiday spirit for young and old alike.

WHAT’S HOT ON DVD If you’re waiting for the Skyfall line at the box office to die down, here’s what’s hot on DVD: The Amazing Spider-Man Andrew Garfield breaths new life into this fresh take on Peter Parker. Garfield’s real life girlfriend, Emma Stone, co-stars. The plot? Uh, it’s Spider-Man. It’s a 7. Brave Pixar’s animated tale of a Scottish lass who refuses to follow the social mores of her world. Good message, forgettable film. It’s a 6. The Watch Normally, if you ask me if I wanted to see the new Ben Stiller/ Vince Vaughn movie, I would jump at the chance. But run from this movie like it’s a rabid dog. A group of men on neighborhood watch discover aliens are invading their subdivision. This movie does not have an I.Q. in the triple digits. It’s a 3. The Queen of Versailles To be perfectly honest, this is the next movie on my list to watch. It’s the documentary about a billionaire real estate mogul and his family, and the sudden challenges they face after the collapse of the housing market. Ruby Sparks If you missed this in the theater, it really is worth the rental. A young novelist (Paul Dano) discovers that the female character he is writing about, Ruby Sparks (Zoe Kazan), is alive and well, and living in his house. It’s an 8.



NOVEMBER 16, 2012 {}

HIGHLIGHTS This season’s Christmas Spectacular includes a dazzling, 50-foot LED screen in the background that features eye-popping visuals to enhance various numbers, most impressively the Act I finale, a scene titled New York at Christmas that transports the troupe on a double-decker bus through the streets of Gotham as the bus ‘winds’ its way through the city. The Christmas Spectacular is best appreciated by youngsters, who are the target audience in this family affair that more often than not seems plucked from the 1950s. It’s the type of show that would play well in Branson, where the Rockettes indeed have performed in the past. Overly familiar routines such as The Nutcracker definitely show their age, even if they appeal to the tykes. Sprinkled in, though, are newer bits such as the very clever Here Comes Santa Claus, in which that LED screen is put to imaginative use to explain how Santa can be in so many places at the same time. Two numbers in the first act demonstrate the dancers’ disciplined agility. The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers showcases their skill marching in unison and then ‘falling’ in a handsomely choreographed bit that has the soldiers collapsing one after another in domino fashion. The Rockettes’ legendary tap dancing expertise is underscored in the engaging Twelve Days of Christmas routine as they take turns tapping out the familiar, repetitive melody in engaging fashion.

MUSICAL: Radio City Christmas Spectacular GROUP: Radio City Rockettes VENUE: Peabody Opera House DATES: Through Nov. 17 TICKETS: $26-$92; 800-7453000 or ticketmaster. com More theater reviews available on laduenews. com.

Julie Branam directs everything with her own brand of precision based on the original production directed and choreographed by Linda Haberman. While the Radio City Christmas Spectacular plays it safe to the point of tedium for some patrons, it nicely fits the cozier confines of the Peabody Opera House, offering both children and adults the opportunity to marvel at the LED creations, as well as the disciplined dancing diligence of those 21 Rockettes.



K, I DON’T WANT TO spend too much time on this movie because you’re either going to see it or you’re going to see it. Seriously, if you have no plans to see it in the upcoming weeks, I will assume you have already seen it. This Bond makes you realize that it’s not always about raising the bar—a bigger explosion, a cooler gadget—it’s about a compelling story and great acting. The plot, as always, is simple: good versus evil. Bond (Daniel Craig) has been shot and is presumed dead. Our villain, Silva (Javier Bardem), a sexually ambiguous rogue agent, has stolen the list of MI6 agents undercover in terrorist groups around the world and, for lack of a better word, is ‘outing’ them. Silva is driven by a twisted need to exact revenge on M (Judi Dench) for a decades-old betrayal. So it is up to 007 to save the day. The filmmakers do something very smart with this film: To be progressive, they go old school with just a gripping story and a tremendously talented cast. Craig takes Bond seriously, and he’s a pleasure to watch.

RATING: A 3.5 on a scale of 1-to-5.


spicybits Setting the ‘Bar’ Bartolino’s Osteria

For those just not up to the chore of making a Turkey Day feast for the whole fam, Cielo Restaurant in the Four Seasons downtown has the answer: Chef FABRIZIO SCHENARDI and his crew are whipping up Thanksgiving dinner to-go. The dinners include delectable items like roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted sweet potato puree and a take on a holiday favorite, green bean casserole, as well as a whole roasted free-range turkey (brined for a full 48 hours before baking), and a choice of two pies from pastry chef PETER WHITLEY. The cost per dinner is $295 (excluding tax) and it feeds 10. Orders have to be received by Monday, Nov. 19, and can be made by calling 881-2105.

There will be a new brew out this month from Schlafly. The 21st Anniversary Single Malt Scottish Ale is brewed with a special malt from Scotland and aged in Scotch whisky barrels from Glen Garioch Distillery in Aberdeenshire. Also new on the hops front, O’Fallon Brewery and Stringbean Coffee have teamed up to create a new winter seasonal beer, Cocoa Latte, using cocoa from Bissinger’s. The brew will be available on draft around town only through December.

THE BARTOLINO NAME HAS BEEN A fixture in the St. Louis restaurant community since the early 1960s, associated with a stable of eateries that includes Bartolino’s South, Chris’ Pancake and Dining and the latest object of our attention, Bartolino’s Osteria. The restaurant is located on the edge of The Hill in the Drury Inn and Suites at Forest Park, just down the road from the original Bartolino’s location, which is the current home of Joey B’s. Just like some restaurants located in strip malls and shopping centers, those that reside in hotels sometimes get overshadowed by their surroundings. Certainly, Bartolino’s doesn’t look like much from the outside. But once inside, there was nary a trace of the hotel to be found; and the ambiance was welcoming, comfortable and low-key, with diners attired in everything from business suits to sweat pants. The main dining room was separate from the bar area, which created a nice buffer between diners and happy-hour revelers. The Bartolino’s menu boasted the motto, Cook Good Food And Give Plenty. This proved to be quite the understatement, as every course that came to the table seemed plated for two. Our first thought was to start with the Antipasto plate ($13), and then delve into a salad. But the Bartolino’s Special Salad ($12) contained almost the same ingredients—salami, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts—as that starter, so we decided to take out two birds with one stone, so to speak. This tasty take on the classic Hill salad put some others we’ve sampled recently to shame. The provel was freshly grated on top—not dumped out of a bag— and the dressing was sweet with a bit of bite, but not cloying. There also was no shortage of salami, either—always a plus! Growing up in St. Louis and making frequent excursions to The Hill, the Traditional Bartolino’s Pizza ($17) from the original location was one of our favorite pies. Could the current edition live up to those fond childhood memories? Happily, yes. In fact, it may even have exceeded expectations. We ordered the 14-inch version, and it was every bit the classic St. Louis-style pizza we recalled: crispy thin crust with plenty of provel at the base, then piled ridiculously high with Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and onions. It paired up quite well with a glass of Ciacci Piccolomini ($8), a bold Super



Kudos to chef CASEY SHILLER, executive pastry chef at Jilly’s Cupcake Bar & Cafe and coordinator of the baking and pastry program at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park. He was recently named Chef of The Year by the American Culinary Federation’s Chefs de Cuisine Association of St. Louis. Congrats to the folks at The Sweet Divine. They competed for the second time on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars Nov. 4. Though they were vanquished this time around, they proudly represented the Lou and put forth a fine effort. Well done! The Presentation Room at L’Ecole Culinaire is featuring some fall feast specials for lunch and dinner through Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Tuscan wine that stood up to the hearty toppings. The House Special Risotto ($18) was next on the dining agenda. Aside from containing really tender risotto and a rich sauce of white wine and cream, what set this dish apart were the chunks of sweet Italian sausage, with hints of fennel that seemed to be in every bite. It was definitely worthy of being the vanguard of the risotto selections. We saved just enough room to split a classic Cannoli ($8) before we pushed ourselves away from the table. In addition to being delicious, the food was very reasonably priced, and the service also was more than adequate. Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing; and his wine recommendation was spot-on. Bartolino’s transcended its so-so surroundings and definitely lived up to the reputation it’s earned over the years for fine food and service. 2103 Sulphur Ave. (Hampton at Wilson), 644-2266,

Locally Conceived


N A WHIRLWIND OF JUST FIVE SHORT years—and four locations—business partners Maddie Earnest and Patrick Horine have made their mark on the St. Louis food scene. Open daily, their Local Harvest Grocery, Café and Catering has made regional crops and goods grown and produced in rural Missouri and Illinois readily available on a consistent basis in this big city, starting with their first location in the Tower Grove neighborhood in 2007. But Earnest remembers that it was soon after volunteering to help Horine and his wife, Jenny Ryan, to start the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market in 2005 when the idea actually came to her. “I had read an article in The New York Times about a store in Portland, Ore., that got about 20 percent of its inventory from local farmers and producers,” Earnest recalls. “So I sent Patrick that article and said, We should do this in St. Louis!

Well, he was very receptive, saying he had been thinking about this very same thing. What I didn’t know at the time was that he had grown up in the grocery business.” That first store on Morgan Ford Road, which included a sandwich counter, was only 650 square feet, so it wasn’t too long before they realized they needed more space. About a year later, Earnest and Horine opened their first café across the street, and then moved the grocery store into a larger space. “We literally had a box-and-bag brigade as we moved, with people stretching from the old space to the new store about 400 feet away!” Earnest laughs. Then in 2012, they opened two new locations: a cafe in The Old Post office building downtown and a grocery and café in Kirkwood. Although each of the cafés serves breakfast and lunch, the downtown location provides full dinner service,

and the Kirkwood café serves a limited dinner menu, including seasonal vegan entrees, Braised Grass-Fed brisket with Onion Confit and Stuffed Poached Missouri Trout. And with even more square footage in the Kirkwood grocery store, the selection is even greater, and features relatively unusual items like sustainable wines and beers, green coffee beans in bulk to roast at home, as well as cheese-making supplies. In addition, there’s a large selection of local meats, Earnest notes. “We have an area that I call our ‘tip-to-tail’ section for those who are interested in using the whole animal—for our more adventurous cooks, you might say.” On Dec. 8, Local Harvest is hosting holiday tasting fairs at the Tower Grove and Kirkwood stores. “It’s going to be really fun and a great way for people come in and learn a little bit more about us,” Earnest says. “And we will have our holiday baskets out, as well, with themes including Local Sweets, Winter in St. Louis and Kids Stuff.” Other special holiday stock will include turkeys, ducks, geese, pheasants, Cornish hens, chestnuts “and as much local produce as we can get, like tomatoes, turnips, lots of squash, sweet potatoes, pie pumpkins and greens,” she adds. “One thing that I’m super excited about is some purple cauliflower that we have now. Don’t get me wrong—my son, who is 5, is not perfect eater. But we recently went to a potluck on our street, and it was the purple cauliflower that he went for first!” she laughs. “You know, we tend to think of produce as being one way: there’s one type of carrot, one type of celery. But really, there are myriad varieties out there—we’re just not used to seeing them. It’s fun to be able to expose people to that! And we’ve had customers who just did not believe they were real.” Among Earnest’s personal, seasonal favorites are kale, collard greens and Brussels sprouts, including a recipe for Sautéed Brussels Sprouts that is certain to be on her holiday table. With more than 100 products from local vendors, Local Harvest continues to see growing sales each year, according to Earnest. “Buying local means that we are supporting and buying from farms that are using sustainable farming methods and growing practices, and that’s important,” she says. “These are practices that work with the earth, instead of just taking from the earth. And the more you can buy from local producers and farmers, the more money you keep in the region, which translates to a stronger region. People can directly impact their area by just buying local.”


1 apple, diced


1 lb. Brussels sprouts, sliced thin

3/4 c heavy cream

2 to 3 garlic cloves

3/4 c walnuts, chopped

3 T olive oil

3 to 4 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the garlic and onion until tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the sprouts and sauté for 3 to 4 more minutes, and then add the apple and sauté for a minute or two more. Stir in the cream and walnuts, continuing to stir for two to three minutes longer. Plate, sprinkle the bacon over the top and serve.

Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis Continued from page 19 on this issue—it gives systemic change, not only helping victims but changing some of the baseline numbers,” Rich says. “It will promote prevention programs, increase awareness and work with counselors who are often already trained in sexual assault, but are not necessarily trained in working with developmental disabilities. They’re working across the board to solve—or at least lessen—this

problem. It’s an issue people don’t really like to talk about.” The Foundation also has recently provided funding to Safe Connections, a counseling agency for victims of assault; ROW (Redevelopment Opportunities for Women), which provides financial counseling; and Marian Middle School, just to name a few. In addition to its annual fundraiser, the

Foundation receives funds from Rung, a resale fashion boutique in Rock Hill that helps women find professional clothing to start their career. “Women can donate articles they no longer wear to someone who can use them, and the proceeds get donated to helping women again,” Rich says. It’s a circle of helping that just needs one donation to get it started, she adds. “It’s a win-win-win.”

The Flu Shot Continued from page 43 is considered very safe for almost everyone. One concern cited by some individuals involves potential exposure to thimerosal, a preservative used in many types of vaccines. “Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative that has been used for decades in the United States in multi-dose vials of some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs, bacteria and fungi that can contaminate them,” Maly explains. “There is a large body of scientific evidence on the safety of thimerosal. Numerous studies have found no association between thimerosal exposure and autism.” Another common anti-vaccine argument is that the flu vaccine may actually cause a case of influenza. Again, experts dismiss this concern. The worst potential side effects are minor, Maly says. They include soreness, redness or swelling at the injection site, low-grade fever, or aches. “The viruses in the injectable influenza vaccine are inactivated (not live) so they do not cause influenza,” she emphasizes. “The Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine (LAIV) is made from weakened viruses and does not cause influenza. It may cause some mild illness, runny nose, headache, sore throat or cough.” In fact, some people who claim to come down with flu after being vaccinated may have instead suffered from a ‘flu-like illness.’ “In the winter, we do see many cases of flu-like illness, which are due to different viruses,” Pratt says. “These are not protected by the flu vaccine. Usually these illnesses are of a milder nature than the true influenza infection.” He also notes that it takes about two weeks after vaccination for full immunity to occur. Sometimes, flu is contracted during this period of time. With a low risk profile and the benefit of protecting yourself and your loved ones, consider getting your flu shot and enjoy a healthy holiday season.

ln landscape Continued from page 51 sweet treasures is mixed with butter lettuce or mixed baby greens, candied pecans and Maytag blue cheese crumbles. Add mild white balsamic vinaigrette and a grind of fresh black pepper, and you’ll have a blissfully delicious salad. Next on my culinary list for blending spices and fresh fruit is pear-fig chutney. Even the slightly ugly, dented dropped fruits can be magically transformed into a magnificent compote. With the redolence of fresh spices, including sharp cinnamon and nuanced nutmeg, the simmering sweet pears and figs had us all salivating before the fresh rosemary-rubbed pork roast came out of the oven. Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme Both the rosemary and sage shrubs have been bounteous in spite of July’s killer heat. The summer-dried sage sachets are ready for holiday giving. There should still be fresh sage in the garden for stuffing the turkey next week. My sage

went feral during my travels abroad, crowding out the more genteel herbs and rooting in where it touched the ground. Now there are seven plants where once there was one. It would be nice if rosemary was so rambunctious! I’m testing the newer variety of rosemary called ‘Arp’ since some fellow gardeners say it’s hardy enough for St. Louis now. Both of my ‘Arp’ plants did well last winter, but it was unusual winter and hard to judge. If these plants hold well this year, I’ll let you know because you, like me, are probably tired of dragging heavy pots of rosemary into the house each winter or buying new plants every spring. I’ll keep my fingers crossed! The rest of the primary herbs, oregano, thyme and parsley, all have rebounded extremely well since the cooler autumn weather and rain have arrived. The Italian parsley has prospered in my absence and begat a million babies. Now, I’m busy transplanting seedlings to wider spaces and dreaming of next year’s pesto. Happy Harvest!

Persons of interest Continued from page 20 represented all the big English bands. Schankman says that led to another turning point. “In ’71, we did Yes at Kiel. We sold out two shows,” he says. “Barcelona gave us all of his acts, giving us our first big break.” Not long after that, they booked The Rolling Stones to play before an intimate audience at Kiel Opera House. “Here they were, playing in a 3,500-seat theater, grossing only $35,000, but Mick Jagger loved it because it was so small and they had been playing in stadiums all this time.” Contemporary also became the nation’s biggest producer of comedy shows, launching the careers of Cedric the Entertainer, Roseanne Barr and many 60

others. “We gave Tim Allen his start right here in St. Louis,” Schankman notes. “He had gone to prison for selling cocaine, but we booked him at the American Theatre, and the rest is history. We did all of his live dates before he went to TV.” Schankman literally has thousands of stories about the shows and the countless stars he’s worked with for the past 40-plus years. His 2008 book, Produced by Contemporary, details much of his work. But he says among his most memorable moments came in 1999, when he was asked to be the lead event coordinator for the historic St. Louis visit of the Pope. “It was the two most special days

of my life,” he says. Schankman adds that he introduced himself to the pontiff by saying, “Shalom,” and the Pope was pleased by the greeting. To say his career has been an incredible success would be an understatement, but Schankman says it all comes back to the music. “You gotta be grounded and that’s what the music does for me,” he says. “When I play, I’m just a trumpet player in the Motown Revue—nobody knows who I am.” If you look at Schankman’s high school yearbook, the quote next to his picture says Let the music within us never die. It seems that same legacy still is alive for the ‘Music Man of St. Louis.’
