hope this finds you sipping sweet tea in the shade somewhere that makes you feel like a kid again. Isn’t that what summer is all about? Feeling unencumbered and inspired? I thought I’d keep it simple this month and share this recipe from a cookbook I helped edit in the 1990’s when we lived in Hong Kong. It’s a winner for BBQs and potlucks. Have fun and enjoy this issue with ideas for nearby summer outings and maybe even a little inspiration!

READERS ALWAYS Come first ARTICLE SUE G. COLLINS | PHOTOGRAPHY SCOTT AREMAN

Dear Lifestyle Publications, hen Van Council of Van Michael Salon and our publisher Jim Newman sat down last year to brainstorm

on how to engage you, our readers, they wanted to dream up something special. They called on Buckhead’s most beautiful hotel, the Mandarin Oriental Atlanta and the fabulous Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse to collaborate on an exciting project, an unforgettable BuckHaven experience for one of our readers.  We asked you to jump to our website and enter and nearly a thousand of you did. Thank you! Alicia Harden was the lucky winner and last month embarked on her 24-hours of luxury and pampering. Alicia and her boyfriend Svante checked into the Mandarin Oriental and immediately headed to the MOHA spa for a couples massage. They enjoyed a 1 hour and 20 minute Oriental Essence Massage in the VIP Couple’s Spa Suite.The private couples treatment room has a private jacuzzi and shower.  The men’s and women’s lounge each has a steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, private showers and a terrace overlooking the Buckhead skyline. Healthy snacks, infused water and tea are on tap, too, in the plush lounges. In the fluffiest robes, the couple met at the bright indoor pool for a cocktail and snack before being whisked off in the hotel Tesla to Van Michael Salon for hair and make-up services. (Van Michael Buckhead and Sandy Springs were voted as the best salons in both the BuckHaven and Perimeter North reader’s choice contests earlier this year.) Alicia received color services with Ashley and a gorgeous cut and blowout by Brandon (shoulder, head and hand massage with compliments) and Svante met with Alex for color and a cut with Erin. Back at the Mandarin Oriental, they relaxed in the city-view king room before changing for dinner.  Stopping at the The Cafe’ & Bar for a cocktail, they toasted with a signature cocktail. For dinner, Alicia and Svante were treated like royalty at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse at Phipps Plaza, and called the MOHA Tesla for luxury transport back for a lovely night at the hotel.

PerimeterNorthLifestyle.com | July 2017

Now the week has started over and we are still thinking about the special day we were able to experience on Friday.  The stay at the Mandarin was a pleasure, the room was very comfortable and a nice view of Peachtree Rd.   The spa was just beautiful we definitely relaxed and enjoyed the massages! We also got to try out some new summer cocktails at the bar, try the Caipirinha it was delicious! And the lychee martini was refreshing.  Great place to stay!!  At Van Michael salon everyone was super friendl y and accommodating us every step of the way.  They definitely have some very talented stylists who made sure we were ready for a night on the town.  We both looked like movie stars! We even received neck and hand massages now that is V IP treatment!  We made our way over to Davio's for a fantast ic dinner.   The service was top notch and the food was delicious.  I especially loved the bread, it's like nothing I had before!  Excel lent wine choices as well.   We wanted to again thank you all for this opport unity we truly enjoyed everyt hing!  Warm regards, Alicia & Svante

Food & Wine

from

Farmers Market

beginnings

B

ased in Dunwoody, Emily G’s Jams of Love has grown from its humble beginning of selling four jam flavors at a farmers market in 2008, to currently selling 18 jams, sauces and relish, with a presence in 28 states. Despite the expanding demand, owner Jennifer Burns still makes the jams using fresh, locally sourced ingredients and tests recipes in her home kitchen. With such a wide variety of jams and sauces, Emily G’s Jams provides that extra ingredient to make a dish stand out.  Sauces

such as Curry Ketchup, Pepper Vinegar Sauce and Three Pepper Relish can complement a variety of meat dishes. And while jams

and jellies are known in the South for being a biscuit spread staple, Emily G’s line includes unique flavors such as blackberry vanilla, cranberry port, pear honey and jalapeno raspberry. The products can be found in several destinations around Dunwoody with online ordering as well. One establishment with a wide range of inventory is d’Vine Wine Bar and Shop located in Dunwoody Village. Named one of the best wine bars in Atlanta, d’Vine features tasty bistro bites and a “Wall of Wine” lined by over 600 bottles. Part retail wine store and part romantic bistro, they feature more than 60 wines by the glass.  Since wine, jams and cheese are such a perfect pairing, guests can sample Emily G’s off the menu as well. Additionally, you can find the Emily G’s Pepper Vinegar Sauce on every table at Farm Burger, located in the Georgetown Shopping Center and at the franchise’s additional locations throughout Metro Atlanta. Since Farm Burger prides itself in providing local and fresh provisions, it mirrors Emily G’s mis-

sion of “We do everything for the love of food. We believe that what we eat should be prepared simply and naturally with the best ingredients available.” 24

their unique personal problems complicate matters. THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO BY TAYLOR JENKINS REID

Born to Cuban immigrants in Hell’s Kitchen, Evelyn Elena Herrera became Hollywood film star Evelyn Hugo through a series of gambles. Now nearing the end of her life, major publishers and media outlets beg her to share her life story. Instead, Evelyn chooses unknown magazine writer, Monique Grant. She gives every juicy detail of her ruthless ambition and, of course, about her seven husbands. She also divulges her great forbidden love and a long-held secret that reveals why Evelyn really chose Monique for the coveted job. THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING BY GRANT GINDER

The People We Hate at the Wedding is funny family drama at its finest. In the Chicago suburbs, widowed matriarch Donna spends her evenings drinking wine and watching her favorite television shows. Two of her children, Paul and Alice, are struggling with relationship and career issues, while her eldest daughter from a previous marriage, Eloise, lives the pampered life in London. When the dysfunctional clan gathers for Eloise’s spectacularly fancy wedding, small details like embroidered napkins stir up a handful of underlying resentments. THE IDENTICALS BY ELIN HILDERBRAND

Identical twin sisters, Harper and Tabitha Frost look alike, but lead wildly different lives. Laid-back and easygoing Harper can’t hold down a job or a relationship on Martha’s Vineyard. On Nantucket, Tabitha has a taste for fine wine, owns a fashion boutique, and is mother to a rebellious daughter. After more than a decade apart, in an attempt to end their sibling rivalry, Harper and Tabitha swap islands and identities for an unforgettable summer that will change their lives forever. IT'S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND BY MICHELE CAMPBELL

Twenty years after three women become college friends, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge while someone urges her to jump. With a storyline alternating between the women’s college and adult lives, the layers are peeled back on their complex relationship. Filled with lies, betrayal, bribery, infidelity, and murder, this page turner will have you on the edge of your seat right up to the finger pointing finale.

ere are two automobiles—the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF and 2017 Focus RS—that are not only stellar buys, but come

with a manual transmission for the true driving experience.

Mazda MX-5 RF

2017 MAZDA MX-5 RF

Even more sexy and powerful. Mazda’s Miata has a cult following and for good reason. Their attractive two-seaters are not only reliable, but attractive, inexpensive and simply a joy to drive. The latest edition—the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF—is loaded with options, rests on 17-inch alloy wheels, and gets 155 horses darting out of its SKYACTIV, 2.0-Liter, 4-cylinder engine. Graciously, all of this power still won’t make this two-seater constantly thirsty thanks to a combined 29 miles to the gallon. Inside, a booming BOSE nine-speaker sound system, push-button start, Bluetooth technology, leather-trimmed sport seats, and convertible roof with automatic activation further justify its loyal fan base. Need we say more? At $34,310 with all the bells and whistles, the RF is even harder to pass up.  Fuel Economy: 26 city/33 highway/ 29 combined Base Price: $32,620 MazdaUSA.com 28

2017 FORD FOCUS RS

Unleash the beast! Even Waldo is easier to find than a new American automobile boasting manual transmission, but thankfully the beastly 2017 Ford Focus RS hatchback has saved the day. Flexing a road-terrorizing 350-horsepower engine from its 2.3L EcoBoost engine, the signature Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive System for optimal maneuverability, and different power modes including Normal, Sport, Track, and Drift are just a few of the mouthwatering performance options lighting up the auto industry.  While its muscular exterior complete with a menacing front grille, rear spoiler, custom fog lamps, dual exhaust, and optional 18-inch RS Sparkle Silver-painted alloy wheels turns heads, the interior is just as attractive. The high-performance RECARO seating; leather and alloy stick shift; advanced, yet user-friendly SYNC3 interface; 10-speaker Sony sound system; and rear view camera further enhance the riding experience. Ultimately, this Ford is a monster any thrill seeker would love to unleash.
