Lifestyle Letter

Hello BuckHaven,

L

ast month, we celebrated my beautiful niece’s engagement in Asheville with family and her incoming in-laws. My husband and his brother (the father of the bride) were shushed a few times by other members of the family who could see the trajectory of the night. They were two wound up New Jersey bulls in a china shop. Luckily my niece and her smart (and much quieter) fiance’ had recently been introduced to The Five Love Languages, author Gary Chapman’s manual for “love that lasts.” The young bride-to-be explained to her parents and aunt and uncle (both couples celebrated 29 years of marriage Happy Father's Day to this last month) the importance of understanding how your mate great dad and grandfather, expresses love. While the bulls rolled their eyes, the wives Jim Newman. nodded, recognizing that words of affirmation, physical touch and quality time were not necessarily the strongest languages of our mates. They are, however, fluent in gift giving and acts of service.  My husband and I have three kids (17, 20, 25) and just last month, he drove 14-plus hours from a meeting in Milwaukee to pick up our daughter and her three college mates when their car broke down outside Indianapolis. He didn’t think twice before organizing a hotel room for them after the tow truck dumped them off. He never forgets birthdays and anniversaries, personally picking out the flowers at our favorite florist in Candler Park.

My mom and dad spoke entirely different languages, which probably contributed to them divorcing after 36 years of marriage. Thankfully, they both found amazing spouses with whom they communicated with much more efficiently, successfully and warmly. They are both gone now, and I miss them on Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, and every day. This month, I will celebrate my children’s father’s love for them and hopefully he’ll understand what I’m saying. I’m starting with beef and red wine. Happy Father’s Day to all you dads. Enjoy this issue, which is man-centric for all the right reasons. Sue

Featuring more than 200 works, including his famous screenprint portfolios  Marilyn Monroe  (1967),  Campbell’s Soup I  (1968),  Electric Chair  (1971), and  Mao  (1972), the exhibition takes you on a journey through the late 20th century with some of the era’s most powerful and enduring images. The works in the exhibition are drawn exclusively from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon. Remarkable for their nearly exhaustive range, the Schnitzer Collections offer an unparalleled opportunity to explore the breadth of Warhol’s influential graphic production over the course of four decades.

Chef Delesandro’s crab cake instantly transported me to Maryland. I heard about this work of culinary art from my good friend Seth Herman who used to live in Baltimore and is also a crab cake fiend residing in ATL. I took his recommendation and confirmed: Delesandro knows crab cakes. Delivered in a dish with just enough depth to hold the shallow base of lemon mustard beurre blanc to surround the main attraction, the evenly browned crab cake was a quarter-pound masterpiece boasting an edge jagged enough to give each jumbo morsel its own identity. Unprecedented in my dining experience, a healthy flake of white crab meat was used as a garnish on the top. “I only use jumbo lump crab meat,” Chef Delesandro said while I cried internally due to forking the last of his crab cake. “I instruct my staff that they only use a limited amount of crushed crackers and mix it with the crab only in two tosses. No more. The meat will break otherwise. After that, it is baked. Nothing else.” Ultimately, I owe Seth a beer. This crab cake was the best I’ve ever had inside the perimeter so far. CONTINUED >

CRAB CAKE HUNT (CON TI N U ED)

Chef Charles Zeran, Stone's

EXECUTIVE CHEF CHARLES ZERAN

STONE'S CUISINE & COCKTAILS Executive Chef Charles Zeran has showcased his culinary skills throughout the East Coast including, yes, Maryland, but his crab cake style is obviously one of his own. Breaded with browned panko crumbs to provide a crunchy encasement, the slightly creamy crab filling is made with about 70 percent jumbo and a pinch of diced red peppers. “I think they should be about the crab,” Zeran explains. “Just enough seasonings to highlight the flavor, just enough other ingredients to accent, and just enough breading to keep them together.” The dish was accompanied with an extraordinary passion fruit tartar sauce, celery root, and crowned with yam straw disclosing Zeran thrives on complexity. His crab cake—as well the other picturesque, mouthwatering dishes that passed me by—boasts the delectable fusion of various textures, colors, sweet, and savory all resulting in a burgeoning legion of loyal customers. You can count me as one of them. Dennis Malcolm Byron aka Ale  Sharpton  is a world-renowned beer authority,

journalists worldwide to drive their highly-anticipated SUV on some of the most challenging surfaces Mother Nature could craft. Taking on Utah's various landscapes—from the rugged terrain of Canyon Point to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes alongside dune buggies—the fifth-generation Discovery successfully confirmed its rebirth. Drivers were instructed on how and when to activate the several driver assistance technologies such as All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) to effectively handle off-road surfaces, gun the HSE’s 340-horsepower engine to apex towering hills of unforgiving sand, and even balance the vehicle on three of the four 20-inch alloy wheels in desert regions.
