Lifestyle Letter

Art is All Around Us

T

here is art around every corner—from the colorful mosaic cows and butterflies that have lined the streets of downtown Highland Park to the meticulously landscaped gardens at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I see art all around us. Art does not have to have a frame around it to be considered a "work of art." Daily, my children remind me that art can be found in simple objects such as sea glass washed up on the beach or the colorful canopy of leaves that change color daily.   During our monthly planning meeting, the October local art theme was created, and it was so enjoyable to piece together. Art has been a big a big part of my life since I was a little girl. I carried this passion through my studies obtaining a Bachelors of Fine Art in graphic design and minor in art history. I truly appreciate all mediums of art and am excited to show you where you can go locally to get an art fix and also give you an inside look at some very talented artists in our communities. In this issue, we take a peek inside The Art Center, which opened its doors more than 60 years ago for artists to explore their creativity and showcase their work. Next, we take a look at our friends at The Gallery in Lake Forest, a unique concept in dining that brings an art gallery and restaurant under one roof. It is an experience that will not disappoint with ever-changing art exhibits that line the walls and masterful menus that complement the art. We are also looking forward to kicking off our Halloween festivities with Highwood’s highly anticipated Pumpkin Fest and cannot wait to see all of the fun creativity that lines the streets of Highwood, as thousands of jack-o'-lantern’s faces flicker in the night!

only avoided a 45-minute wait by sitting at the bar—at 10:00 a.m. on a Friday. Being tourists, we made the required visit to Voodoo Donuts: imagine Stan’s, but if they offered 50 different specialty combinations of frosting and cake. Then you’ll understand why we waited in a line that went out the door and around the block—on a weekday morning. Of course, there is more to do in Portland than eat. Only Portland would boast a bookstore as one of its top attractions, and Powell’s, the world’s largest independent bookstore, is a wonderful way to lose one to innumerable hours. If you insist on getting some fresh air, however, 2 miles west of downtown is Washington Park, home of the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan. You can get to Washington Park by foot, car or light rail, just don’t try to ride a bike there. We learned the hard way. As one proceeds westward, Portland slopes dramatically towards the heavens making bike travel … difficult. The friendly park ranger informed us of this after we arrived at the gardens, sweaty and exhausted after 1 1/2 hours pushing our bikes uphill. But, as Lewis & Clark will tell you, if you’re going to venture west, get to the coast.  And the Oregon coast is spectacular. Through Airbnb, we found a house in Neskowin, population 170. Proprietor Nancy has been opening rooms in her family home—named Hadley Harbor—to visitors from all over the world for years, but, please, don’t tell anyone else, or she’ll be booked up forever. More an escape than getaway, leave your phone in your bag and visit the weekend farmers market, explore the miles of shoreline or, gasp, read a book uninterrupted. Whatever you do, just don’t miss the sunset. Nancy’s backyard is a stage for the Pacific Ocean, so grab a bottle of local wine from the grocer and let the sun take your worries with it into the sea. As difficult as it is to leave the Pacific, treasures abound inland.  If you take the northern route back to Portland, you travel through the natural wonders of the Tillamook Forest. To the southeast, follow the blue signs on the highway that let you know you are in wine country.  Being carted around from one winery to the next has its perks, but finding our own way allowed us to visit some places not on the tours, including our absolute favorite, Brooks Winery. A rustic façade hides a hip interior tasting room. However, that is nothing compared to the two-level patio that overlooks the vineyards and, in the distance, three(!) mountains: Mount Hood, Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens.  But don’t forget, you’re there for the wine, which is transcendent. Join the wine club or take some home with you. Just know you have to get it all back on the plane somehow.

Valentine’s Day as a couple, she painted him a picture of an oversized deer head. “I remember being completely blown away by her work,” Dominic, a James Beardnominated chef recalls. “I joked that we should do a show together called the ‘Nature of the Beast’ where her art would inspire dishes I’d create. That show never happened, but it set the wheels in motion for where we are today.” And where Dominic and Cecilia find them-

selves currently is in downtown Lake Forest as the co-owners of The Gallery—a unique concept in dining that brings an art gallery and restaurant under one roof. “Dominic and I love just hosting people,” Cecilia explains. “We always talk about how The Gallery is truly an extension of our home.” The premise of The Gallery is that the rotating art exhibits will inspire a seasonally changing menu. “The dishes don’t exactly mirror the art on our walls,” Dominic says. “The menu comes from me sitting down with an artist and understanding their creative processes and what drives them. I then translate this into our food. It’s all interpretive—very much art in its own right.” CONTINUED >

The Gallery has gained quite a following since its opening earlier this year. On most days, you’ll find the duo single-handedly managing the food and the guests. An old-school bell that was a gift from Cecilia’s grandmother is often the most important element in the restaurant, alerting Cecilia that Dominic’s food is ready to be delivered to a waiting guest. “Sometimes Dom can tell who is in the dining room based on the tickets I take back to the kitchen,” Cecilia says with a laugh. “The community has been so supportive of what we’re trying to do here.” What some may not know is that Dominic's kitchen is not typical of most restaurants. Because of the design The Gallery, he can’t use any open flames. All of his food is prepared using electricity only. “I’ve been a chef for over 20 years and I’m so grateful to be able to have this concept to keep my mind fresh and push my creativity with the challenges I have in this kitchen,” he says. “When I come up with an idea, I also have to know that I can execute it with the limitations I have, and be able to do it all by myself with a full dining room on a Saturday night. There’s a lot to think about, but there is never any monotony. I have actually had customers thank me for not having a burger on the menu. It’s very satisfying to be a chef in this kind of environment.” Dominic updates his menu as the seasons change to make use of the most current fruits and vegetables. But there are a few stalwarts that never disappear—favorite dishes like the black garlic deviled eggs with crumbled bacon and braised beef are sure to stay season after season. Customers love his take on dishes inspired by his travels around the country that translated into a finished product that only Dominic can imagine. In addition to offering lunch and dinner service, The Gallery has recently become a favorite destination for milestone celebrations. “We just hosted a retirement party,” says Cecilia, who is skilled at helping clients think through the details of hosting a party in their space. “It was an emotional occasion, but it meant so much to us to be a part of it. Events are really the icing on the cake for all that we’re doing here.” This fall, they are also venturing into catering—taking their food on site to host a high school alumni event for 80 people. "As each week goes by, we're learning the endless possibilities we have to share our food and make people aware of The Gallery," Cecilia says. In addition to the featured art exhibits, The Gallery also provides space for the Artists on the Bluff—a nonprofit group dedicated to advancing artists—offers meeting and editing space to three local photographers and provides rental opportunities for artists looking for a working studio. “The Gallery is clearly an interactive space with lots of moving parts and creative energy,” Cecilia says. “But I think that’s the amazing thing

about my partnership with Dom. What is, is never enough. It keeps us engaged and our guests excited about what is coming up next.”

Cincinnati native, who has lived in Lake Bluff with her husband and daughters since 2010, says her real joy is turning cherished memories into beautiful paintings for families across the country. Lakeshore Lifestyle recently caught up with Erin for a brief chat about her artistic process, and how a paintbrush helped her to overcome a health scare in 2014.

LAKESHORE LIFESTYLE (LL): HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME AN ARTIST? ERIN HENKEL (EH): I don't remember ever "deciding" to be

an artist. It's always just something I've done. LL: TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND. EH: I'm originally from Cincinnati. I went to college at

the College of Charleston where I studied studio art. It's a beautiful and amazing city that inspired me daily. After graduation I moved to New York City. I lived there for almost six years. I spent some time working for a fashion designer as well as an interior design firm. LL: WHAT ARTISTIC ACCOMPLISHMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF? EH: Almost all of my paintings are custom works. I've

done works of art to celebrate wedding anniversaries, engagements, birthdays, new homes, new babies and so on. I love the idea of helping someone capture a scene or place in history that means a lot to them. I've painted vintage cars, bars where people met, venues where people got married, homes where people lived and vacations that people treasure.

Some of the additions to The Art Center’s offerings this fall are new military and wellness programs, the start of an annual speaker series and a photography certification program. One of these new programs, called “Me and My Grown Up,” is geared toward children up to age 4 and their caretakers. The program allows young artists to create works of art while working on their fine motor skills. Another new program at The Art Center explores the therapeutic and rehabilitative potential of art. The center’s wellness program offers a variety of art classes designed to help people find inner peace and better health. “For people who are healing perhaps from a divorce, healing from having been diagnosed with a disease or healing from the fact that a loved one has passed away, art has been proven to be helpful,” Michele says. In addition to its educational focus, The Art Center also offers a variety of art exhibitions and special events throughout the year. In October, the Upscale Art Resale offers residents the opportunity to buy pre-owned artworks donated by galleries, estates, corporations, businesses and individuals. “People have donated art throughout the year, and we’ve got some wonderful pieces this year,” Michele says. “People come out and get really good deals, and we, in turn, are able to use that revenue towards scholarships, programming and any other needs that we have.” Next to the annual gala, the Upscale Art Resale, formerly the Recycled Art Sale, is The Art Center’s second largest fundraiser. “There have also been some pretty noteworthy exhibits here over the years,” Ilana adds. The Art Center has exhibited works from famed folk artist Ed Pashke, American street photographer Vivian Maier, internationally renowned artist Gerda Meyer Bernstein and American painter Phyllis Bramson. Upcoming exhibits include  “Narratives in Glass,” which explores the innovative process and artistry in contemporary glass through sculpture and “Moments in Time,” a juried show open to all photographers.

oodles - the glorious comfort food that reminds so many

cultures of home. Noodles have become the staple food worldwide (from Rome to Bejing) for centuries. The oldest evidence of man enjoying a good ole noodle dish dates back to nearly 4,000 years ago! We can thank Asian origins for the creation of the noodle, which, in 2017, is consumed across the globe.  Recently, noodles have been growing in popularity as carbohydrates are no longer the notorious demon of the diet world. Although, keep in mind, not all noodles are created equal. Noodles made with white flour are still bad  but

CROCKPOT CARAMELIZED PORK RAMEN NOODLE SOUP W/CURRY ROASTED ACORN SQUASH by Half Baked Harvest | @halfbakedharvest | HalfBakedHarvest.com prep time:  25 minutes |  cook time:  7 hours | total time:  7 hours 25 minutes | yields: 4 bowls of soup + extra pork 

INGREDIENTS

• 2-3 pounds pork shoulder roast • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (or butt)

• 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar

• 4 cups low sodium chicken broth, • 2 cups wild mushrooms, left whole plus more of needed

• 1/4-1/2 cup + 2-4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce (Use low sodium) • 1/4 cup + 2-4 tablespoons rice vinegar

- or button mushrooms, sliced • 4 packs Ramen noodles, seasoning packets discarded • 4 soft boiled or fried eggs, for serving • Chopped carrots, sliced jalapeño, cilantro + green onions, for serving

• 2 tablespoons fish sauce (optional)

Curry Roasted Acorn Squash

• 2 tablespoons thai red curry paste • 1 medium acorn squash, • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (chili paste) • The juice of 1 lime

seeded + diced • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted • 1 tablespoon curry powder • 1 tablespoon white miso paste

• 1 tablespoon Chinese five spice • 1 tablespoon brown sugar • 1 teaspoon black pepper

• Pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Add the pork to the bowl of a crockpot. Pour the chicken broth, 1/4-1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice vinegar and fish sauce over the pork. Add the Thai red curry paste, ginger, sambal oelek, juice of 1 lime, Chinese five spice powder, black pepper and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. 2. About 40 minutes before you are ready to eat, roast the squash. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 3. In a small bowl mix together the melted coconut oil, curry powder, miso, brown sugar and a good pinch of pepper. Add the cubed squash to a greased baking sheet and pour the curry mixture over the squash. Toss well. Bake for 30-40 minutes, tossing a couple of times during cooking. You want the squash to be lightly browned and crisp. 4. Meanwhile, remove the pork from the crockpot and add the mushrooms. Cover the crockpot and crank the heat up to high. Lightly shred the pork with two forks or your hands. 5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sesame oil. Once hot, add enough pork to cover just the surface of your skillet, do not overcrowd the skillet. Sprinkle a little brown sugar over the pork, add 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, toss. Allow the pork to caramelize, about 2 minutes. Stir and allow the pork to continue to caramelize, about 3-5 minutes total. Remove the pork from the skillet, repeat with the remaining pork. Keep the pork warm. 6. Add the Ramen noodles to the crockpot and allow them to cook 5 minutes. Once the noodles are cooked, stir in only half of the pork. Ladle the soup into bowls.

COLD AVOCADO CUCUMBER SOBA Serves: 2

INGREDIENTS

Ingredients • 4-6 ounces soba noodles • 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil • 2 medium cucumbers (or 1 large seedless cucumber) • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar • 1-2 tablespoons ponzu sauce (or extra tamari & rice vin with a squeeze of lime)

• Avocado slices • Sesame seeds Optional additions: • tofu or a protein of your choice • sriracha or chile flakes Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

Rice Noodles

• ¼ cup chopped scallions

1. Boil the soba noodles in salty water until al dente. Blanch them for 30 seconds in a bowl of cold ice water, then drain. Return them to the (empty) bowl and gently toss with a splash of sesame oil so they won’t stick together while you finish everything else. 2. Thinly slice the cucumbers using a julienne peeler (you could also use a mandolin or veggie spiraler). Discard the first peel (it will be all skin) and carefully make your slices around the seeded part in the middle. 3. Toss the cucumber slices and scallions with the soba noodles. Add tamari, rice vinegar, and ponzu and toss again. Taste and adjust seasonings. Top with sliced avocado and sesame seeds. Serve cold.
