Food, Glorious Food ARE YOU HUNGRY, NAPLES? We’re sure you will be when you read—or should we say devour —this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue! We spent the last few months scouring the streets in search of the most delicious bites Naples has to offer, and we found some incredibly unique, and unconventional, places for you to try (Page 18). Narrowing down all the sensational local flavors and global cuisines in town was no easy task, but we are confident this issue is an accurate representation of our emerging reputation as a diverse and evolving dining destination. While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious) but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures, and we have found some master chefs who would love to give you a food experience you'll never forget.

CRAFTSMANSHIP A GOURMET DESSERT FOR YOUR TABLE 14

Naples Lifestyle | October 2019


FIRE AND RICE QUESO FLAN INGREDIENTS

Serves 12

+ 1 1/2 cups sugar + 2 tablespoons corn syrup + 3/4 cups water + 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened + 6 large eggs + 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk + 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk + 1 teaspoon vanilla extract + Salt, to taste + 4 ounces ramekins

DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 350 F. Stir first 3 ingredients in heavy medium saucepan (should look like loose, wet sand) over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to bring to a boil without stirring until syrup turns to an amber color. Work quickly (as the caramel will continue to cook) to ladle a thin layer of caramel into the bottom of the ramekins and reserve. To make custard, combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, mascarpone cheese, vanilla extract and  salt in a blender.  Blend 30-45 seconds until all ingredients are combined.  Pour custard through a strainer into a container; pour into the ramekins with the caramel. Place the ramekins in a 2-inch deep hotel pan or baking dish and add enough boiling water to pan to come up halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Loosely cover with foil and bake 45-55 minutes. The center of the flans will still wobble slightly, but they will set as they cook. Remove flan from water bath. Refrigerate uncovered until cool; cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours before serving.  Run small, sharp knife around flan to loosen and invert on a serving dish. The flan should release cleanly, and the caramel sauce should evenly distribute itself. Garnish with seasonal berries, serve and enjoy! Note: If you have access to an oven that will hold 200 F, you can bake the flans on a sheet tray (without the water bath) for 75-80 min. Both techniques work well!

“I usually dropped a finger in my bull rope, which meant that your hand was locked into the rope,” Tom explains. “The moment the chute opened, there was some big eruption.” Skulls of man and beast collided, knocking Tom into unconsciousness. Bound tightly by the rope across the middle of the bull’s back, Tom’s hand pinned him to the thrashing animal. “So now my legs and stuff are underneath his hind legs … he’s bucking and stepping on me quite hard.” He admits it is the closest he ever came to death inside a rodeo arena.

thrills, the rise and a fall of a mountain feeds the soul of a man yearning for peace. “Nancy and I would come up to Montana in the summertime and go rodeoing out here,” he says. The appeal of the Wild West beckoned, and they loaded all of their possessions into an old pickup truck. Interestingly, the truck they used to begin their life in Montana was bought with money earned from muskrat pelts, a small hint at the future that lay in store for the Oars. “We had no idea what we were getting into or how I was gonna make a living out here. But I just had a feeling that, by God, I can do it. I can get it done.”

It would just take a little bit more luck to turn his tanning into a lucrative business. “Black Powder Rendezvous, they called them,” Tom says. “They were recreations of the old fur-trade days in the Rocky Mountains when all the trappers would meet in one spot.”

Feeling well at home amongst this like-minded crowd of mountain men, he finally discovered a niche for his handmade wares. And when Tom does something, he is certain to do it well. “The most prestigious clothing that you could wear at one of these rendezvous is brain-tanned buckskin clothing,” he says. Patrons immediately sensed the incomparable quality of the brain-tanned hides Tom provided, and the hides began to sell at a remarkable rate. Tom found his peace. Together, Tom and Nancy defied the odds. Danger lurked, isolation taunted, and the bitter chill of Montana winter bore down upon them;

When asked how he copes with the steady current of visitors making the trek to his property each summer, he just shrugs and confesses he would rather people like him than hate him. At the age of 76, he continues to toil endlessly on his craft and their survival in the mountains. “Amazing life,” he surmises. “I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. And as long as I can still do it, hell, I’m gonna do it.”
