Fall, Glorious Fall

CONTRIBUTING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Eric Branch, Leigh Martin

OCTOBER IS MY FAVORITE MONTH OF THE YEAR. It brings warm days and cooler nights, sweaters come out of the closet, football season is in full swing, the smell of wood smoke fills the air, and, if we are lucky, the glorious colors of the autumn leaves in East Tennessee will put on a show. Fall is also a great time to enjoy food and drink, whether it’s a tailgate, a night out with friends, or "name your favorite pumpkin spice product." With that in mind, here is our food-themed issue. In our main feature, "A Hundred Thousand Welcomes," we interview Jon Ferrie about Finn's Restaurant and Tavern. It focuses on the food's authenticity and the decision to open a place in the historical Baker Peters House.  In "Kitchen Accomplished," we present  a photo-focused feature on a new build in Karns. It's a chef's dream kitchen with little details that make cooking and organizing easier, along with tips from interior designer Brooke Phillips. In "Cheers to St. Midnight," Emily Crutcher, manager of Old City Wine Bar, makes a dark and spooky rum cocktail for Halloween. Our Financial Buzz feature, "Waste Not, Save Lots," offers tips from Melissa Ballard, CFP, on how to shop for groceries thoughtfully. And in Locals Only, we have "Cookbooks Worth Owning," which are selections from the staff at Union Ave Books.

Kitchen tip number 1 Instead of creating a palette of complementary colors, stick to similar tones and vary the textures. Interior designer Brooke Phillips reclaimed Chicago brick for a backsplash and whitewashed it to match the cabinetry. Similar tones were mirrored when selecting the granite countertops. Save the color for accents.

“[BROOKE] HAS AN EYE FOR EVERY PALETTE YOU’D NEED TO PULL OFF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.” –CAROL LAY Not only do pot-filler faucets make stovetop cooking more convenient, but the sleek and simple cold-water tap also increases the value of the kitchen overall.

Instead of under-cabinet lighting, use a small lamp to provide just enough light and visual interest to a small countertop space.

Kitchen tip number 2 Opt for space-saving drawers and cupboards, including cabinet doors for the refrigerator and dishwasher. It reduces the look of clutter and leaves countertop space free for baking and entertaining.

West Knoxville Lifestyle | October 2019


Kitchen tip number 3 Use utensils that are both functional and attractive. Choose durable natural elements, such as wood, stone and metal, which are universally appealing to nearly every style.  Let your cookbook collection be your art collection. Rotate a different cookbook each month or season and display it next to potted herbs or fresh flowers. 

“We used all types of raw materials, and I love that the island has rough edges. I like to show that imperfection,” Carol says.

WASTE NOT, SAVE LOTS THOUGHTFUL GROCERY SHOPPING SAVES MONEY

West Knoxville Lifestyle | October 2019


HAVE YOU EVER THROWN OUT A HEAD OF ROTTEN ORGANIC BROCCOLI AND BEEN IRRITATED ABOUT IT? Or cleaned out your pantry to find a slightly used bag of quinoa purchased for a recipe made two years ago that’s now expired? Or what about this one—you reorganized your spice cabinet and found three containers of paprika? If you haven’t already suspected it, I’ve unfortunately done each of these. Multiple times. As someone who actively works not to waste money (and to be a responsible human!), groceries are an area where I’m continually frustrated by

food waste because it’s depressing. So, what can we do to improve not only on our families’ bottom lines but also the greater waste problem? Below is some food for thought (pun intended!) that might help:

3

SHOP LOCAL

When you can, buying locally produced produce is ideal. Not only does it help

the community, but the produce also gets to your home quicker (rather than being shipped hundreds of miles to your grocer) and will, therefore, stay fresher longer.

4

BUY IN BULK

Don’t think Costco “bulk” items; think package-free and customized quantity

“bulk” from your grocery store. Whether beans, grains or spices, buying bulk and only the quantity you need for a specific recipe can help you reduce money spent, food waste and will preserve space in your spice cabinet and pantry. Just as with trying to stay on an exercise or spending plan, making incremental steps can have a huge impact over time. Saving a few cents here or there by implementing a couple of these suggestions could amount to a weekend getaway! It’s worth a shot—for our bottom lines and for our world.

West Knoxville Lifestyle | October 2019


Pop into Finn’ s

RESTAURANT AND TAVERN ON ANY GIVEN EVENING, AND YOU’LL IMMEDIATELY FORGET YOU’RE IN KNOXVILLE. Through the front door, under the American and Irish flags, you’ll take to the wooden staircase and be greeted into the restaurant by two painted murals: Céad Míle Fáilte (Gaelic for “A Hundred Thousand Welcomes”) and the traditional Irish blessing, “May the Road Rise to Meet You.”  Or, you could take the side entrance, up an outdoor covered stairwell that leads directly to the sports tavern outfitted with plenty of pub chairs, TVs and beer selections. (Liverpool FC fans are extra welcome.)   Whether through the front door or up the side staircase, walking into Finn’s is the next best thing to

Finn's Draft System

boarding a plane for Ireland. Then again, that was the point. When Jon Ferrie and his business partner, Dan Hale, decided to open Finn’s, the first area of focus was authenticity, starting with the building. “Dan learned the Baker Peters House was available, and I knew it’d be perfect for an Irish tavern. It was built in 1830, but Ireland’s houses are some of the oldest on the planet. I love the preservation of history, so when you walk in, it’s like a functioning museum,” Jon says. “We went for mid-century style, but the green velvet couches are like what you’d see in Ireland today. They all preserve history. They are proud of their heritage, so I wanted to keep the story of the past alive.” Jon is clear about this. Finn’s is not a stereotypical American version of an Irish pub. There are no Irish pubs in Ireland, he says, tongue-in-cheek. They’re just pubs. Local, comfortable, traditional.  He’s been down this restaurant road before. When Jon moved from Ireland to the States in 2004, he and his wife set up a life in Florida. Then their children reached school age, and the couple decided Knoxville would be a better place to raise a family. When they realized Knoxville lacked an Irish

Baker Peters House

pub, they opened Irish Times in Turkey Creek, which operated successfully for eight years. When the lease ran out, they closed, leaving faithful patrons without their trusty neighborhood pub. That is, until now. Named after the Irish mythical hunter-warrior Finn McCool, the new restaurant and tavern has a little bit of everything, from traditional Irish fare to American favorites. The atmosphere and aesthetic shifts from room to room, so romantic dinners, family gatherings  or a cheerful night out with friends are all welcome at the Baker Peters House.  CONTINUED >

“Since having the Irish Times, we’ve seen a lot of chefs come and go and had a great reputation already, so our crew here is hand-picked,” Jon says. “Some of the dishes are traditional, like cottage pie, corned beef and Chicken Tipperary, and we have fish and chips with fresh cod. We have a European environment and flavor, but our menu is split because not everyone is into that. We have burgers, rib-eye and salmon and now a charcuterie board to encompass everyone’s palette.” Finn’s also serves the “holy trinity” of beer—Guinness, Smithwicks  and Harp—along with their own lager, Finn McCool’s Lager, which is made locally by Marty Vales at Fanatic Brewing Company. If lager and ale don’t suit your taste buds, the wine list is extensive, as are the signature and classic cocktails. (Everyone must try the James & Ginger.)  Below the restaurant is the dental practice of Dr. Larry Tragesser, who bought the building 30 years ago and initiated getting its historical marker. It was Dr. Tragesser’s and Jon’s shared love of history that made the pairing of Finn’s and the Baker Peters House make sense.  “Most restaurants and bars in the States are in strip malls. They’re purposely built for that reason. With Finn’s, you can’t work against the house. You have to work with it. When you walk in, it’s like you’re in a home. It’s not a chain, and you know it,” Jon says. “It wasn’t thrown up in a few weeks. There’s craftsmanship that you can see from the 1800s. It’s a part of local history.”  20

Whether you’re in the mood for a full Irish meal, like corned beef and cabbage, or craving a lighter bite, like Salmon Leap, take a pick at Finn’s charcuterie board.

Charcuterie Board

Perfect for sharing (or not), it’s definitely a crowd-pleaser.

Drink

There is something for everyone at Finn’s— wine, cocktails, ale—but for a true taste of Ireland, order their signature James & Ginger. Crisp and refreshing, it’s the perfect, palate-pleasing mixture of Jameson Black, Domaine de Canton, lemon, sage and honey.

Be Merry

Watch all the Premier League games, Formula 1 races and Tennessee Vol games in the tavern. Rent out the firstfloor room for family reunions, parties  or other private gatherings. (Rent the whole house, if you want to.) The restaurant opens at 4 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. On Friday and Saturday nights, Finn’s offers live music and stays open until 1 a.m.

STOP IN TO THE OLD CITY WINE BAR FOR HALLOWEEN SWEET TREAT EMILY CRUTCHER, GENERAL MANAGER OF OLD CITY WINE BAR, KNOWS HOW TO MIX A GOOD COCKTAIL. She spent seven years as a bartender in Knoxville (nearly half of that at Old City) and enjoys crafting new seasonal drinks for patrons to try. Whenever she’s crafting a cocktail, Emily starts with the visual. “I visualize what I want it to look like, and for this one I wanted a deep purple color to showcase the violet flavor,” she says.  For October’s menu, Emily wanted to create a dark, dramatic drink that captured the aesthetic of the witching hours. She started with dark rum as the base. Then, she added an elderflower liqueur, Creme de Violette  and lime juice, then finished  it with a splash of bubbly.  The result is a sweet and citrusy cocktail perfectly suited for a spooky autumnal night.
