Earth Day SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG! As the last dredges of winter make their way out, and we can finally begin to stop and smell the roses, it’s also a good time to remind ourselves to take the time to appreciate our beautiful planet. While April 22 is Earth Day, here at Boise Lifestyle, we are celebrating the planet all month long. Here in this issue, we highlight the people and places in our community who are committing to keeping this planet beautiful—from local farms using sustainable practices and eco-friendly organizations giving back to the community to farmto-table restaurants focused on local ingredients to fuel-efficient vehicles for sale at local dealerships. But, you don’t have to be a farmer or business owner to do your part. Shop at the local farmers market and support local growers, visit local businesses who create eco-friendly products or even just start recycling. No matter what you do, we at Boise Lifestyle support your “green” efforts.

Soda Stop is so much more than just a great place to get a fun drink. In addition to a soda bar with endless options, they also offer on site wine by the glass and beer; local brewery options as well as national brands. With a full and varied menu, catering, drive up service, box lunch and delivery options, the needs of the customer come first. Offering exceptional food and superior ingredients, is top priority including health conscious choices, and clean label turkey, bread and salmon. This means quality food, with labels you can read, and a difference you can taste. If you haven’t tried their hallmark menu item, the grilled Panini sandwich, you are missing out. Owners Jeff and Kathy Ussery are very community focused. Soda Stop sponsors many local events. Kids can earn a free meal through Boise Hawks reading program, and Boise State student athletes sponsorship provides meals for athletes. Partnering with Boise State means Soda Stop will be serving at the stadium during games. Jeff says, “We love giving back to the community that has given so much to us.” Loyal customers are spreading the word and the business is growing, with two locations now, the original location on Overland in Meridian, and the new location on Birch Lane in Nampa. Soda Stop is not only community conscious, but environmentally friendly. The beautiful, new Nampa store features interior finishes including table tops constructed from regionally reclaimed lumber – larch wood that was logged in the 1920’s, sank to the bottom of Montana’s Flathead Lake and was salvaged by divers in 2014. A story wall with information about this project and the area logging complete with an end cut piece of an original log can be found in the dining area in Nampa. The grand opening of this new location is the first weekend in April. Quality food, community spirit, and eco-mindedness make Soda Stop a genuine asset to the Treasure Valley.

THE STORY BEHIND PEACEFUL BELLY FARMS

IT ALL STARTED WITH A DESIRE TO BRING A LITTLE PIECE OF EUROPEAN SENSIBILITY BACK HOME TO BOISE, SO CLAY AND JOSIE ERKINS DID JUST THAT WHEN THEY REALIZED THERE WAS A NEED FOR UNPACKAGED AND LOCAL PRODUCE IN BOISE. While living in Germany near a beautiful village where they worked as civilians teaching different recreational activities to the military, the Erkinses experienced the craftsman style, artisan culture of food and fell in love with it. They quickly did their research and learned about internship opportunities where they could work on farms and learn about the process. They first started at a small farm called Cosmic Apple in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and eventually found themselves volunteering for an Idaho farm called Joan’s Greens. When the owner wanted to give up the day-to-day aspect of farming, Clay and Josie took over, and in 2002, Peaceful Belly was born. Aptly enough, Josie’s pregnancy, along with the post-9/11 climate of tension and violence, inspired their name and mission, following the idea that “if people aren’t filled with good food, there can’t be peace in the world.” Their farm has recently relocated to roughly 45 acres just outside of Marsing, Idaho, where they own 30 acres and lease the other 15. They have always had a strong focus on growing everything to certified organic standards by not using synthetic fertilizers, even back before the organic food craze. They have begun researching no-till methods, which, along with organic treatment, is the ideal, but is one of the most difficult achievements in sustainable farming. By growing locally, there is less distance in the transportation, and Clay imagines a future where there are little farms like theirs all over Idaho so good food can be easily accessible rather than having to come from a central location.

BRINGING PEACE THROUGH PRODUCE

(CON TI N UED)

There is much to be excited about, though the 3 acres of heirloom-variety cider apple trees may be a good place to start. Peaceful Belly has partnered with Snake River Winery and has delved into the world of hard cider. Dubbed Stack Rock, you can find products around town in places such as Bittcreek, Red Feather and the Boise Co-op. This new location, The Vine and Branch Ranch, has led the Erkinses to dream up and execute all kinds of possibilities, so not only is Peaceful Belly a farm, but it's also a gathering place where they can showcase their bounty through delicious recipes. They plan to open on Mother’s Day weekend in conjunction with their Freaks of the Garden sale. The farm will feature more farm-to-fork dinners and pickyour-own produce events this year, so be sure to check out the website, PeacefulBelly.com, to keep abreast of all the happenings this year. Peacefully Belly exists in a symbiotic relationship with the community, where the community supports the farm by buying its food, whether from the market or through the farm's Community Supported Agriculture program, and the farm supports the community by providing them fresh and healthy food. Peaceful Belly has set the bar for high-quality produce in the Treasure Valley, which make it that much more difficult to return to your regular grocery store goods. These fruits and vegetables are the same fruits and vegetables that Clay and Josie feed their family, and there’s something special about knowing exactly where your food came from and how thoughtfully it was chosen for your table.

DRY CREEK RANCH ANSWERS THE CALL

FOR RESPONSIBLE GROWTH Prior to the Great Recession, the Treasure Valley was growing rapidly – a fact that provoked both native residents and transplants to begin voicing concerns about how we manage such growth. While the economic downturn temporarily put the brakes on growth, our Valley is booming again. Not surprisingly, the new surge in building and economic activity has reignited understandable concerns about how we grow. Such questions and concerns should be top of mind for developers, who conceive of and build homes and workplaces to accommodate the demand created by the Boise area’s growing popularity and famed quality of life. When Boise Hunter Homes purchased land in Dry Creek Valley in 2016—land that Ada County had already approved for the aggressive development of 3500 residential units, 4 school sites, and commercial space the size of The Village at Meridian—such a development didn’t feel right to us. We had an alternative vision for this unique area and went back to the Ada County Commissioners with a vastly scaled back proposal that would be more consistent with the surrounding area and with the agricultural heritage of the land.

Our plan for Dry Creek Ranch, now approved by the County, includes setting aside 1/3 of acreage for open space; features many miles of trails, greenbelt, and equestrian facilities; creates a farm-to-table theme with community farming plots for local food production and sets aside $3 million for a wildlife mitigation fund. We’re committed to investing $20 million to improve public safety through road, traffic and infrastructure upgrades. Furthermore, in focusing on the self-reliance and sustainability of this thoughtfully designed community, we are investing in our own water system which taps into the same groundwater source that’s been used to irrigate for a century, as well as a state-of-the-art waste water treatment facility, whose reclaimed water will irrigate the land. Recently, we’ve heard some refer to a similar but more extreme form of NIMBYism— BANANA, or Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything. Concerns about growth are warranted; we have responded by creating a community with an eye towards sustainability and honoring the area’s agricultural traditions.

“CREATING THESE DISHES HELPS ME MAKE A CONNECTION WITH THE GUESTS, THE FARM AND THE COOKS WHO PREPARE OUR FOOD.” -CHEF RICHARD JIMENEZ

Hello

spring! spring is the perfect time to:

· assess for damage that may have occurred over the winter · Check for plant nutrition needs · Assess for unusual pest activity

Richard Jimenez has generously shared a makeat-home version of his beet salad. The original version of this complex dish involves many techniques that might be a stretch for the average home cook. This simplified version will transform the way you feel about beets. For a truly magnificent salad, visit Le Coq d'Or to try the menu version. After trying this salad, you will want to have a ready supply of fresh beets, so don't forget to plant some in your home garden.   “As a chef, I work hard to manipulate one ingredient in multiple directions which adds complexity to the flavor within a dish helping it take on different characteristics," he says. "Creating these dishes helps me make a connection with the guests, the farm and the cooks who prepare our food.”

ROASTED BEET SALAD I N G R E D I ENTS + Red and yellow beets + 1 head of frisée, cleaned and torn into 2-inch sections + Goat cheese parfait + 1 cup roasted hazelnuts + Grapefruit sections, membrane removed + Candied grapefruit zest + Hazelnut vinaigrette

D I R E C T I ONS 1. Using a pastry bag with a ¾-inch tip, pipe about 2 ounces of goat cheese parfait in a continuous line across the plate. 2. Season beets in a bowl with a splash of oil and offset the beets from golden to red across the line of parfait. Between the beets, place two grapefruit segments, and press four or five hazelnuts into the goat cheese. Lightly dress with vinaigrette. 3. Between grapefruit segments and the beet, place small pieces of frisée evenly through the salad then lightly drizzle vinaigrette on top of the frisée. Use only ½ ounce of frisée per plate, as more will make the salad bitter. Finish salad with four pieces of candied grapefruit zest.

BEETS I N G R E D I ENTS + 2 medium red beets + 2  medium yellow beets + 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

D I R E C T I ONS 1. Rinse and scrub beets, pat dry and toss in oil salt and pepper. Wrap individually in foil and roast at 400 degrees. 2. After 30 minutes, agitate beets by shaking them in the roasting pan. Check after 1 hour by poking to check texture. The knife should move through the beet easily with little resistance.  3. Once cooked, cool, peel cut into wedges and set aside.

HA ZELNUT VINAIGRET TE INGREDIENTS + 1 tablespoon honey + 2 egg yolks + 1/3 cup Frangelico hazelnut liqueur + ¾ cup sherry vinegar + ½  teaspoon salt + ¼  teaspoon ground black pepper + 2 ½ cups blended oil

DIRECTIONS 1. Heat a sauté pan on high; add a pinch of water to see if it sizzles. 2. Once pan is hot, add Frangelico and shake pan until alcohol is flambéed. 3. Once alcohol is burned off and flame subsides, take off the heat and reserve. Add sherry vinegar to pan. 4. Using a quart container or mixing bowl, add vinegar-Frangelico mixture, salt, pepper, honey and egg yolks. Mix with immersion blender or whisk until incorporated then slowly drizzle in 2 1/2 cups of the blended oil until emulsified and set aside.

GOAT CHEESE PARFAIT INGREDIENTS + 16 ounces Montrachet chevre (goat cheese) + 1 cup heavy whipping cream + 1 tablespoon sugar + Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS 1. Whip in a stand mixer on speed 1 for 30 seconds. 2. Increase to speed 2 for 2 minutes, until fluffy.

CANDIED GRAPEFRUIT ZEST 1. Heat two small pots of boiling water and set up an ice bath with a colander for blanching. 2. Once water is boiling, add the pith and zest from the grapefruit, stir for 15 seconds, remove from boiling water and shock in ice bath for 15 seconds; repeat process five times. This process is very important as the grapefruit zest will be bitter if it’s not blanched long enough. 3. Once cooled, use a sharp knife to fillet grapefruit zest from pith until there’s no white on the zest; slice into uniform strips. 4. Make simple syrup using 1 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water with a pinch of cream of tartar to stop syrup from crystallizing. Heat mixture until it reaches the consistency of syrup, then add grapefruit zest and simmer on medium heat until zest is translucent. 5. In a spice grinder or coffee grinder, blend a cup of granulated sugar until powdered. Strain grapefruit zest, allow to slightly cool but not completely. If the zest is too hot the sugar will clump; if it’s too cool, sugar will not adhere to the zest. 6. Coat the zest by sprinkling with powdered sugar mixture and tossing in a bowl continuously until a layer of sugar has adhered to the grapefruit zest. Place on a perforated rack or pan.

ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

FAMILIES NEVER RECEIVE A BILL FROM ST. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. There are many St. Jude patients in the Treasure Valley area that receive treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and who benefit from the life-saving research that is shared with hospitals throughout Idaho and around the world. More than 75 percent of St. Jude's budgeted costs are covered by public contributions and campaigns like the Boise St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. This year, 9,777 $100 tickets will be sold to Idaho residents for a chance to win a beautiful house in Meridian, valued at $460,000. Construction on the 13th Annual Boise St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house is well underway.
