Since November 1999, he has worked full-time as an independent jewelry appraiser, enlightening clients on their exact contents of their collections and their true value. Once your collection has a safe to go home to and the collection’s true value is known, it’s time for the third and final step in long term security of your jewelry collection: insurance. Craig McElhaney of StateFarm, a Nashville native whose own father was an agent in Green Hills, is your man. He is an expert in insurance with vast experience in all areas — home, life, health, business and property such as jewelry. As long as Craig has an appraisal that is less than two years old, he can craft the most effective coverage at the most reasonable price. One of Craig’s current accounts provides $278,000 in coverage for a single diamond. A more modest collection, say one worth $30,000, can be insured for an affordable $325 a year. In all cases, Craig will take the time to get to know you and your insurance goals.

SANTO’S CENA AL TA R T U F O B I A N C O, THE WHITE TRUFFLE DINNER AN ELEGANT EVENING. AN ELEVATED EXPERIENCE.

EACH DAY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, SANTO CREATES AN ELEVATED DINING EXPERIENCE OF SEASONALLY INSPIRED, MODERN MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE. While located in Green Hills, Santo would no doubt prove fully at home were it situated instead next to Manhattan’s more notable restaurants, Eleven Madison Park and Le Bernardin included. Its Green Hills location, however, gives Santo’s patrons an advantage that other elevated dining experiences often lack, convenient and complimentary self and valet parking — no trivial matter as, once you sample executive chef’s Sal Avila’s inspired artisanal dishes placed before you with impeccable service, you will want to return again and again.     But just as Everest towers above the surrounding peaks, so too does one particular elevated dining experience at Santo attain unmatched heights. Benvenuti alla cena al tartufo bianco — welcome to the white truffle dinner and — ohmygoodness — are you in for one memorable meal, a six course symphony of gastronomic art with the world’s most delicious fungi, the white truffle, serving as leitmotif.  The genesis of the dinner sprang from a late October conversation between Doss Posey, Santo’s general manager, and a fabulous family of regulars discussing white truffles. It was there that Doss decided to do a very exclusive white truffle dinner, explaining his vision to the group and his experience in putting on a score or more of truffle dinners over the years in Atlanta, Boston and Manhattan. They decided to go for it. Easy to say, but not easy to do. 20

SANTO ’ S CENA AL TAR T UFO BIANCO (CONTINUED)

Clearly so. Chef Alvia’s six dishes were each extraordinary in their own right -- the foie gras torchon with apple, the crispy halibut with melted leeks, the braised veal with cipollini onion, the list goes on — but each course was made even more flavorful by the fragrant flakes of white truffle Doss would sprinkle on from above. “We will absolutely be holding this every year in celebration of the most delicious fungi on the planet,” Doss promises.  “But also as a celebration of the conclusion of another year.”  So start planning ahead, dear readers!  The next white truffle dining experience at Santo is a mere ten months away.  To stay abreast of this and Santo’s many other special events, simply add your email to their events page at www.santonashville.com or follow them on Instagram @santonashville.

French gourmet Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarian called Piemonte’s white truffle “the diamond of the kitchen,” referencing its rich flavor. Equally true, they’re one of the world’s most expensive foods: grown under specific conditions and harvested in fall and early winter following the keen noses of specially trained dogs.

Don’t let that intimidate you, though; with 71 different runs and eight different ski lifts, this resort has something for every skill level, whether you’ve been shredding powder for years or if you’ve never even touched a set of skis. Speaking of never touching skis, Brian Head also offers beginners classes to show you the ropes necessary out on the mountain. And, to make sure you don’t have to worry about anything other than skiing, Brian Head’s housing is top-notch. Whether you want a hotel, lodge, condo, or yurt, Brian Head has you covered.

at Brian Head, though. Snowboarding is another obvious one, but snowmobiling, mountain biking, and scenic chairlifts are all available options. All this might make Brian Head seem pretty cramped, especially around the winter holidays, but that is surprisingly not true. A mixture of a massive resort, the 71 runs mentioned above as well as three terrain parks, two tubing hills, and tons of backcountry access keep these mountains surprisingly open. It’s a veritable hidden gem nestled into the Utah mountains. Great food and great views are certainly a draw as well. Brian Head Resort will quickly help you work up an appetite for après-ski cuisine in the gorgeous lodge facilities. The Grand Lodge’s Leany’s Steakhouse boasts an in-house baker, the elegant Lift Bar and Patio, and a great view of the surrounding landscape. It’s a cool place to share food and drink with friends. Book a hotel room here and spend a few nights enjoying all the amenities, from spa treatments to a fitness center and meeting rooms. And while the views aren’t usually the first reason one books a ski resort, Brian Head can easily change that. Stunning red rock views are seen from every peak, and the Cedar Breaks National monument is a sight to behold. Brian Head is an extraordinary place to visit and the perfect place to enjoy as your winter getaway. 28

tips

wood to your liking.

Don’t be afraid to do something different, and don’t take things too seriously. If the piece you’re working with doesn’t have any real value, you have so many options to liven it up, including paint, finish and hardware.

Make your piece multi-purpose by turning the lid into a game table or by storing your cocktail accessories inside for an easy-access mini bar!

Spread the vintage love. Use antiques strategically and as accent pieces to keep your overall aesthetic from coming off as too dated.

Repurpose old tins, mugs, teacups or storage containers into succulent gardens. Because succulents have shallow root systems, they can survive (and thrive!) in smaller spaces.

Make it art. Don’t be afraid to display unique pieces as wall art. Consider creating a gallery wall that mixes vintage photographs, prints, mirrors and china.
