Food and Spirits.

I

love a great meal. There’s something about that first bite that tastes beautiful, smells delicious and leaves you longing for many more. I love visiting a restaurant with my husband, enjoying the atmosphere and selecting something fabulous to savor from a wide array of menu options. It means I don’t have to cook or clean and can simply enjoy myself. However, when time permits, I take immense joy in crafting my own meals in our kitchen. I get a huge sense of accomplishment when I spend an hour or more carefully chopping, sautéing and serving a homemade culinary masterpiece.

And then my kids bring me right back down to Earth with their comments: “It’s too fancy, Mom!” and “Can’t we just have Dad’s simple cooking?” Inside this food and spirits issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle, you’ll find many hand-crafted stories designed to tempt your palate. If you like to experiment in the kitchen, you’ll love our recipes and advice for cooking with wine. If you prefer to let someone else do the cooking for you, turn to our story on The Capital Grille to learn more about this fine dining experience just a short drive from town.

CORPORATE TEAM

New bars, breweries and restaurants are opening in West Chester and Liberty every week. We visited four this month and asked each to share the recipe for one of their most popular cocktails. If wine is your beverage of choice, look for some of the favorite picks from Kate Eberlein, the Liberty Township resident who owns Village Wines of Glendale.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

With every good meal comes someone who serves as the backbone behind the scenes. You’ll want to read about an extraordinary party planner, Sara Pattison, who was indispensable as we hosted our Home Expo in June.

OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

Each month we like to shine the spotlight on a local non-profit. This month we turn our focus to the Caring Community Collaborative as they prepare for their third annual Empty Bowls event on October 21.

Staff, volunteers, donors and local leaders all convened at Reach Out Lakota for the official expansion dedication, funded in part by the West Chester/Liberty Community Foundation in 2014.

In addition to the expansion, Reach Out Lakota renovated many parts of the pantry, helping to streamline processes of distribution and client aid. The mission at Reach Out Lakota is to give a helping hand to those living in West Chester and Liberty Township to help bridge the gap between today and tomorrow.

West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle | October 2017


As Julia Child says, "I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food I'm cooking." Wine should be added to food early enough in the cooking process that it has time to simmer. As  wine cooks down, the alcohol evaporates away and the flavors begin to concentrate. Use a light hand at first until you get familiar with cooking with wine. Typically, white wines impart their delicate flavor to seafood, and dishes like chicken piccata and vegetable risotto. Red wine adds depth to bolder dishes like beef bourguignon, mushroom  steak sauce, and of course, great-grandma's famous pasta sauce. Using wine in a reduction or to deglaze a pan creates an intense and complex sauce. It easily picks up those coveted brown bits that elevate the flavor of any dish. But be careful—light and  overly fruity wines can ruin a sauce. The fruitiness is lost during the cooking process and will  leave the sauce too acidic, ensuring those lovely brown bits have gone to waste.  Red or White? Let's be clear about what is considered a good cooking wine. The so-called "Cooking Wine" found in your local grocery store next to the fancy vinegars and Worcestershire sauce is a poor excuse for a cooking ingredient. They are low in alcohol content, highly acidic, and contain a massive amount of salt. Instead, choose a wine you would pair with the meal. Use one that is fruity, medium or full-bodied, and with little or no oak flavor. Wine aged in oak barrels tends to turn bitter and harsh when cooked in food. For red wines, Pinot Noir and blends such as Côtes du Rhône will produce consistent results. Again, avoid wines aged in oak such as the robust Cabernet Sauvignon.  White wines should also be dry and full-bodied. Try a Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked Chardonnay, or even a French Vermouth.

produce a better sauce than a wine picked from the bargain bin? Well, maybe.  America's Test Kitchen tested sauces made

from

similar

wines

in the $5, $10, $20 and $30 price points. They discovered that the $5 wines cooked down to sweet, syrupy sauces, while the $10,  $20 and $30 bottles were smoother,

making

sauces

with

multiple layers of flavor. Although tasters favored wines in the two more expensive price ranges, none thought the difference justified spending an extra $10 or $20. They found that limiting the price to $10 left cooks with plenty of good shopping options.

Cooking Tips:

• Add a light, dry white wine

to melted butter and baste grilled, broiled, or baked fish. • Mix wine with different herbs and olive oil to make a delicious salad dressing. • Stir in a couple tablespoons of red wine into brown gravy. Slowly simmer to create a luscious sauce for beef. • Freeze leftover drinking wine in ice cube trays for future cooking use. • Use a wine-based marinade to help keep meat, poultry or seafood moist while it cooks.

RED WINE REDUCTION FOR SAUCES

Makes about 2 tablespoons Two tablespoons of this potent wine reduction can be substituted in a recipe, such as a pan sauce, tomato sauce, or roast beef jus, that calls for one-half to three-quarters cup of wine. Add this  reduction near the end of the cooking time—the way you might finish a sauce by swirling in some butter. The reduction can be kept for up to two weeks in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 1 small carrot, chopped fine (about 2 tablespoons) 1 medium shallot, minced (about 2 tablespoons) 2 button mushrooms, chopped fine (about 3 tablespoons) 1 small bay leaf 3 sprigs fresh parsley 1 cup fruity, smooth, medium-bodied red wine blend Heat all ingredients in 12-inch nonstick skillet over low heat; cook, without simmering (liquid  should be steaming but not bubbling), until mixture reduces to 1 cup, 15 to 20 minutes. Pour  through strainer and return liquid (about 1/2 cup) to clean skillet. Continue to cook over low heat, without simmering, until liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons, 15 to 20 minutes.

PATTISON’S PARTY POINTERS The holiday party season is right around the corner! From the small and intimate New Year’s Eve celebration to the office-wide corporate holiday event, the party season is upon us. Sara Pattison offers her top tips for your upcoming seasonal gatherings. 1. SIMPLIFY YOUR GUEST LIST Avoid including the guests you “should” invite. Surround yourself with interesting people you enjoy or want to get to know better. 2. NEVER SKIMP ON FOOD AND DRINK The menu doesn’t have to be complicated, just fresh and tasty. Guests aren’t expecting an open bar—instead, feature one or two signature cocktails alongside a small selection of beer and wine. Craft beer is considered a delicacy in Cincinnati. 3. DECORATE WITH FRESH FLOWERS Don’t underestimate the decorative power of a beautiful bouquet and a few well-placed clear vases showcasing single blossoms. 4. LOOK AHEAD AND PACE YOURSELF FOR SUCCESS Skip the day-of-party stress by spreading your to-do list over the week before your event. Hand off the day-of duties so you can enjoy time with your guests. 5. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION On a budget, home is the best venue for a social gathering. Pattison rearranges furniture to accommodate traffic flow. For corporate events, it’s all about convenience for colleagues and customers. Pin down a location that is central and accessible for guests. Give yourself and your guests the gift of a free consultation from Sara Pattison of The Perfect Party Planner.

The 2017 Empty Bowls event is Saturday, October 21 at Liberty Center's Sabin Hall.

C3 President Lynda O’Connor presents at Lakota’s Back To School Kick-Off event. C3 will be one of the benefactors of Lakota’s “Casual for a Cause” staff fundraiser.

“We’re constantly working to come up with ways that we can help and grow our community in a positive and impactful way as neighbors helping neighbors. It seems to naturally flow from the energy we have within the group,” O’Connor explains. The C3 team consists of leaders from the business, faith and education communities as well as service providers, locally elected leaders and more. It’s a broad spectrum of perspectives on purpose. As a collective, the team is responsible for many events and initiatives including drug addiction, veterans’ issues, mental health, homelessness, hunger, needs of the elderly, interfaith understanding and youth and generational issues. One upcoming fundraising event is Empty Bowls, which benefits Reach Out Lakota and the Faith Alliance Summer Lunch and Learn program. On Saturday, October 21, guests can purchase a handmade bowl and enjoy a meal together while contributing to these non-profit organizations.

gundy tones on the chairs and booths are counterpointed with dark wood walls. Beautiful portraits of local Cincinnati leaders mingle with classic hunting scenes below low golden lamps. Clean white tablecloths lay across every table and a soft, yet upbeat hum of jazz music can be heard from every corner. You feel an ambiance of elegant history when first entering. Then, the glass windows surrounding the modern open-floorplan of the kitchen hint at what is to come.

The Capital Grille dry-ages its steaks right on-site—a unique feature that’s accented with deep flavors like their signature 15-year aged balsamic vinegar. Just around the corner from the kitchen, the main seating area also showcases the wine vault.
