FROM THE PUBLISHER

hello...

J

JULY AND AUGUST IN ROSWELL BRINGS CONTINUED SUMMER FUN plus music, rafting & canoeing, shopping, festivals, butterflies, cooking classes and of course, food. Night Life rocks into high gear when the weather warms. One of the highlights of the summer which kicked off in May is the Riverside Sounds concert series at Riverside Park. We give you the performance line-up on page 16. It seems we can’t put together an issue of Roswell Magazine without spending a lot of time talking about restaurants and fabulous food. This issue is no exception. Jennifer Mehall writes a piece for us about the state of the farm-to-table dining trend locally (p36). Also, stop by the Roswell Farmers and Artisan Markets every Saturday through mid-October (p8). Want to learn to cook your own delicious meals? Barrington Hall hosts cooking classes through September (p.38) Don’t blink! It’ll be back-to-school before we know it. August 8th is the first day of classes for Roswell public schools, so enjoy these last few weeks of fun in the sun while you can.

Roswell’s

FARMERS &

ARTISAN MARKET

T

THE STATED MISSION of the Roswell Farmers &

Artisan Market is: to be an advocate in building community around a local and sustainable food economy. Their objectives are: •to provide a marketplace where citizens can purchase fresh, local farm, ranch and artisan foods direct from the producer. •to promote healthy, sustainable lifestyles through educational workshops. •to encourage entrepreneurship by providing a central place of commerce, retail guidelines, marketing assistance and training. •to encourage relationships within and surrounding the local food economy . A Bit of Market History Originally conceived in 2007 in a joint venture between Roswell Recreation and Parks and Fulton County, the market started with just 8 vendors. From the start, the market was called the “Riverside Farmers Market”, named so because the first location was a dirt parking area in Roswell’s Riverside Park. Excitement always followed the ritual ringing of the cowbell signifying the start of the market. In response to feedback from Roswell citizens and founding vendors a number of changes were made. A volunteer organization was formed (RFAMA) to increase local participation in the market, the City of Roswell became the our primary partner, the name was changed to the Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market, the market season was extended by six weeks, and the venue was moved to an area shaded by majestic oaks behind City Hall.

8

After a very successful 2014 season, RFAMA broadened the all-volunteer Board, elected Woolery Back as President, brought in Tricia Nitti as Market Manager, and set out with a new vision for growing community around local, sustainable foods. Tricia led the market to a new high as the center of community activity joining the Azalea Festival, bringing in grants from Chipotle, Farmers Market Coalition and others. The market is now the “new town center” with a stable, quality vendor base and a very loyal customer base. 2016 Leadership Team President: Woolery “Woody” Back,Chef de Cuisine, Table & Main Secretary: James “Buck” Johnson, Sound Engineer at ESPN Treasurer: Amanda Back VP Vendor Relations: David Read – CEO, Farm2Market POP Coordinator: Erica Stein, Owner, Founder Jolly Green Wellness Member at Large: Melanie Callenbach, President, Toad Haven Farm Market Manager: Taylor Fridrich Assistant Manager: Jazmin Trammel The best way to help the market is to make it part of your Saturday morning routine. You’ll meet new friends, taste great foods, and enjoy some great music. If you can’t be there, please Like them or Share their posts on Facebook and visit their blog to stay in touch.

Riverside Sounds Lineup

R

BY CLAIRE MURPHY

ROSWELL RIVERSIDE SOUNDS Concert Series kicks off on May 7. This series of six FREE outdoor concerts will be held at Riverside Park, 575 Riverside Road in Roswell, on the first Saturday of the month from May through October, from 7-9 p.m.

known band with a number one hit and a gold record to their credit. Their message-driven, passion-fueled music combines world rhythms with folk roots and soulful songwriting, all informed by a global perspective.

“I am so excited for this year’s Riverside Sounds Concert Series,” said Katherine C. Jones, Cultural Services Manager of Recreation, Parks and Historic and Cultural Affairs. “What a fun, family-friendly program that we get to put on!”

AUGUST 6 – The Get Right Band - Relix magazine’s “On The Verge” pick, The Get Right Band is “hip-shaking, earth quaking pure funk fun” (The Alternate Root). Combining catchy, clever songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, the live show covers everything from funk to rock n’ roll to reggae.

There will be food trucks at each concert from 6-9 p.m. and guests are also invited to bring their own picnic and chairs as well. The following are the featured artists for each month: MAY 7 – Geoff Achison & the Souldiggers – Equal parts New Orleans Funk, driving Blues, jazzy Soul and outback Mojo, this southern blues/roots music is from the very deepest South – Australia. Geoff is a jaw-dropping, crowd pleasing guitar virtuoso with a rich vocal style from Melbourne. JUNE 4 – The Bonaventure Quartet w/Amy Pike – This longtime Atlanta outfit handily transplants you to another time and place while putting their own stamp on it all. The ensemble’s latest album, Lost and Found at the Clermont Lounge, may take its title from the Poncey-Highland dive-turned-tourist-attraction, but the disc’s 15 songs traverse decades, regions, whole continents. JULY 2 – Grace & the Victory Riders - New transplants to the U.S., Grace and The Victory Riders are an internationally

16

SEPTEMBER 3 – Stephane Wrembel - Rolling Stone has called him “a revelation.” Woody Allen recruited him to score the theme for the smash film “Midnight in Paris”, and he performed the irresistibly catchy original song, “Bistro Fada”, live during the 2012 Academy Awards. OCTOBER1 – Ed Roland & the Sweet Tea Project Named after the drink that is a cultural trademark of the band’s home region, Ed Roland and the Sweet Tea Project began serendipitously when the veteran singer/songwriter, with time off from his Collective Soul activities, began reconnecting with the rich club and coffeehouse scene in Atlanta. Riverside Sounds concerts are produced by the City of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department.

ROSWELL HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The mission of the Roswell Historical Society is to collect, preserve, share and promote the history of Roswell. roswellhistoricalsociety.org

I

Roswell Magazine is grateful to Cindi Crane for the following valuable information related to our great city’s history: Cindi Crane is a member of the Georgia Writers Association, the Roswell Historical Society, The Trail of Tears Association, Friends of New Echota and The Georgia Trust. She has a BS degree in Marketing and has worked for 25 years in the technology industry. Her husband Steve is part Cherokee. Researching his family genealogy inspired Cindi to write her first historical novel, Roswell Redemption. Her second book, A History of Roswell Presbyterian Church is an addition to the original book, written by Clarence Martin in 1984. Cindi worked with the City of Roswell to build a monument to the Cherokee – to honor those who came before us. For more information contact cindicrane@bellsouth.net. IN 1838 THE MAJORITY of the Cherokees (approximately 12k) were forced onto the “Trail of Tears.” Only about 8K made it to their new Cherokee Nation—what is now called Tahlequah, Oklahoma. After being imprisoned for several months in the stockades, many of the Cherokees died or became ill from disease, exposure and malnutrition. The prior Cherokee Nation in Georgia was the land northwest of the Chattahoochee River, including the land that is now Roswell. The land was given away in the 1832 Land Lottery. In 2013 – 2014, the 175th anniversary of the Trail of Tears, Roswell decided it was time to ensure the Cherokee history was not lost. On July 19, 2014, the City of Roswell officially dedicated the Roswell Cherokee Memorial, stating, “To honor those who came before us… Roswell honors the Cherokee who called this place their home.” This is inscribed on one of the eight boulders that are situated along the Chattahoochee River at Riverside Park in Roswell, which tell the Cherokee story.

Riverside Drive, in Roswell. This is a Roswell Historical Society Project, and plaques were written by Cindi Crane and donated by many supporters in the Roswell community. The Roswell Historical Society, established in 1971 is Roswell’s oldest historic preservation organization. Over the last 40 years, the Society has amassed considerable holdings of historically significant materials and artifacts which are recorded and preserved at the Research Library and Archives---and often displayed around Roswell. The Society and library is located on the second floor of the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. The mission of the Society is to collect, preserve, share and promote the history of Roswell. Their vision strives to tell the story of the entire community and is committed to locating a permanent and visible facility to house and exhibit the vast collection from the past to tell that story. Membership is open to everyone. The following represents the current Board: President: Cecilia Fly Vice President, Membership: Juliette Johnson Vice President, Public Relations: Rick Dreger Treasurer: Kevin Bamford Recording Secretary: Wanda Patterson Cemetery Chair: Janet Johnson Historic Hembree Farm Site Chair: Judy Meer Historic Tours: Lisa Simpson Preservation Awards/Markers: Pat Tatum Miller Decorative Arts Curator: Sherron Lawson roswellhistoricalsociety.org

BUYING VS RENTING By Tracy Coles The Hernandez Group, KW Roswell

Why should you buy instead of rent? EQUITY BUILDING •Initial mortgage payments go towards paying your interest •Each payment you make increases your share of your home’s value •Equity increases your wealth. Rental payments do NOT contribute to your overall wealth. TAX PERKS •Mortgage interest & property taxes are deductible from federal income taxes. Rental payments are NOT. •Tax savings can make owning cheaper than renting STABLE PAYMENTS •Fixed interest rate mortgages mean you pay the same amount every month for the length of your loan •Your payments stay the same regardless of inflation •Rental payments may be raised every year, depending on you lease terms SECURITY •Home ownership secures a place for your family to live and grow •When renting, you run the risk of not being able to renew your lease FREEDOM •Owning a home means you don’t have to abide by a landlord’s rules •Paint, decorate, and landscape to fit your tastes •No restrictions on pets, noise, or remodeling other than legal ones COMMUNITY •Owning a home makes you invested in your neighborhood •Home owners tend to be more involved in the community than renters •Home ownership gives you a sense of place and belonging. If your personal goals include home ownership, it may be advantageous to reach out to a trusted lender to confirm your buying power, enlist the help of a real estate agent, and look forward to enjoying the benefits of living life as you’ve always imagined.

SHINE THIS SUMMER : AVOID SUNBURNS Provided by Northside Hospital Cancer Institute

GETTING SUNBURNED DURING a family vacation in your youth can lead to skin cancer later in life. That’s why 20 minutes before you run outside to enjoy the summer, do this: Put on a hat and apply sun block with a sun protection factor (SPF) 30 or greater. Sunburns are linked to skin cancer and by wearing a hat, longsleeved clothes and applying sunblock, you will help protect your skin from harm. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Most cases of melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer, are caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. Melanoma spreads rapidly and can be life-threatening if untreated. Early detection: If caught early, melanoma is curable, so early detection is crucial. The number of skin cancers diagnosed every year in the U.S. exceeds the total of all other types of cancer combined. Recognizing the risks: Pay attention to any changes in size,

28

shape and color of spots on the skin. Look for moles that are big or have a strange shape. Also note if they vary in color or change with time. If you spot anything unusual, contact your doctor. More than just sunscreen: In addition to sunscreen, protect your skin from the sun and avoid indoor tanning salons. Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours. Wear dark clothing that covers your arms and legs. Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays. More than 1 million new cases of skin cancer are caught every year. Don’t be one of them. Northside Hospital Cancer Institute hosts skin cancer screenings during the summer to help you understand your risk for developing this deadly disease. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20 Northside Hospital Alpharetta at 3400 Old Milton Parkway, Bldg. C, Suite 100/110. (first floor) For more information, go to northside.com/skincancerscreenings or call 404-531-4444 to reserve a spot.

FLEA TALK BY KEVIN ALPHA Kennel Master Crabapple Beds & Bones

T

THE TIME IS HERE AGAIN for warm sunshine, beautiful blooms, and plush greenery of the season. It also time for some things we are not so crazy about, especially: FLEAS. This brings to mind something we hear every year. I have NEVER had a flea problem!! You know the old saying, never say never, it gets us every time. The fact is you have always had fleas in your environment, but they have never become a problem. If you have squirrels and other wildlife living around your home, you have fleas. Hopefully this article will give some insight on where these pests come from how they live and the best ways to assure that you have a flea free summer. Here are a few flea facts. One flea found on you or your pet only represents one percent of the problem. The other ninety-nine percent are the eggs and larvae that are developing in and around your home. One adult flea can lay between twenty and fifty eggs per day, or up to one thousand eggs in a month, WOW!! This creates a difficult task to conquer the army of fleas that may be heading your way. Fleas like cooler moist places. The same types of areas your pet likes when outdoors in the summer. Tall grass, pine straw beds and mulched areas, places under your decks where cool dirt can be found. These areas are where the fleas will generally lay those thousand eggs per

SINCE 1998

month. If you have 20 adult fleas on your pet or in your environment that means up to twenty thousand new fleas could be coming. Boy these guys are prolific aren’t they!! The most common flea is the cat flea which infests dogs and cats. In our Georgia climate we rarely get the freezing temperatures we need for extended periods to kill the flea, eggs and larvae which can lay dormant for months. Keeping your pet on the modern topicals and systemic products is a great start in battling the fleas. Your pet must stay on these products year round to avoid an Oh No period. Missing just a few weeks or months in the fall can set you up for the summer you do not want. Also using granular products such as Dursban in beds around home and other areas previously mentioned can really help control and destroy the life cycle of the flea. Always read labels carefully to ensure that what you put out is safe for you and your pet. There are also many supplements that people swear by, like brewers yeast and garlic, that may aid in the fight against these external parasites. Always check with your veterinarian before using any supplement. Hopefully this will aid in your having a flea free summer and you don’t get caught saying FLEAve me alone.

Custom Software Can Improve Your Business

Are you still trying to fit your company to off the shelf software?

WatchTheDeer.com (a creative development of id enterprises, inc.) 32

THE MERE MENTION OF SOFTWARE causes some people to hyperventilate. Are you one of those people? Using software is a bit like getting married. If each party gives only 50%, it will fail. Both must give 100%. Does your software give you 100%? We all hate those software updates, especially the ones that will take no time. Translation, you will possibly be down a long time! Oh Joy. The thought of new software is even worse. Trying to learn new procedures is always difficult. Of course, then the software errors occur and the blame game begins. Software is a mixed blessing. I like to say software and computers are a cursed blessing, or a blessed curse, depending on your viewpoint. But software does not have to be your enemy at all. It can be tailored to fit your business, not your business fitting the software. Imagine, a screen that follows the way you want things done. One that parallels your business model and procedures? Even mundane software such as back office accounting can be made to fit your business. Most people and companies simply accept performance mediocrity as a way of life. Demand that your software work for you. Demand 100% from both parties and the marriage will work. After all, the computer is your slave, not the reverse! Tnx…id

Thank you, HRBA!

The Historic Roswell Business Association is taking an active roll in downtown projects and initiatives.

Ryan Pernice grew up in Roswell, a proud graduate of Roswell High School. After college back East at Cornell University, and 5 ½ years honing his trade in New York City, Ryan moved back to Roswell to embark on his dream. Ryan’s dream of opening a successful hometown restaurant was realized in August of 2011 when, at the tender age of 25, he opened the doors to Table & Main, a Southern Tavern and Bourbon Bar, on Roswell’s historic Canton Street. Today, Ryan owns not one, but two restaurants on Canton Street having introduced regional Italian Fare to Roswell when he opened Osteria Mattone in 2013. While the press has termed Ryan’s restaurants “instant neighborhood classics,” Ryan is thankful for the success, but concerned for the bigger picture, and the future of his town and his local business associates. That’s the reason why he sits on the Board of Directors of the Historic Roswell Business Association.

Relax...

AND LET ME FIND YOUR NEXT HOME

“The HRBA is a civic and professional networking group that is comprised of more than 200 businesses,” Ryan explained. “We formed

this collaborative entity to give a vehicle and voice to render our opinions on topics that we, as Roswell business owners, are invested in.” According to Ryan, one of the biggest tenets of the HRBA is to diligently work on, and support, projects (like Roswell’s City Green) that will spread the “good stuff” that happens on Canton Street throughout the rest of Roswell’s surprisingly large historic district. The HRBA is getting so close to unveiling exploreroswell.com, a new website and downtown map promoting the Historic District. roswellgreen.com•exploreroswell.com•tableandmain.com facebook.com/hrbaroswell

Myofascial Release

Massage

By Iris Mack, Healing Touch of the Dove

WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE Massage? What is Myofascia? It’s not just an ordinary massage! It is a therapeutic release of the tight fascia which promotes healing of the body. Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body from head to toe in a three-dimensional webbing, without a break in the pattern. It occurs along and between muscles, so it is called myo-(muscle) fascia. Why would it need to be released? The fascia can bind down or bunch up as a result of a variety of things and can cause blood flow to be restricted to cells which impacts the organs and muscles in the body. Stiffness and pain may be a by-product of the tight fascia. Fascial restriction doesn’t show up on the standard tests like x-rays, CT scans, or myograms. Trained myofascial release therapists can feel a thickness and a resistance in the fascia. With hands-on gentle pressure, the fascial restrictions can be moved and unwound. People who have had myofascial release therapy have a hard time explaining their experience to others because the fascia responds to trauma and stresses differently in each person. Your fascia will continue to unwind for a period of time. Because so many toxins have been released in your body through the fascial work, you will need to rest and drink water.

WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN WHEN YOUR FAVORITE DINING ESTABLISHMENT CALLS THEMSELVES “FARM-TO-TABLE?”

LOCAL FLAVOR PHOTO COURTESY FOUNDATION SOCIAL EATERY

BY JENNIFER MEHALL

IT’S FRIDAY NIGHT. YOU DON’T FEEL UP TO COOK-

ING, BUT ARE LOOKING FOR A FRESH, HEALTHY MEAL FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY OR DATE. What is so special about the meals you’ll find at many Alpharetta establishments is the farm-totable freshness! The term “farm-to-table” has been around for many years and could be considered tired, and worn out. But a few local restaurants celebrate this like a happy, seasoned marriage: Fresh ingredients and great food! Farm-to-table dining began as a backlash against the industrialization, commoditization, and centralization of our food production system. The farm-to-table “movement” first began in the 1970’s with the public’s recognition of the benefits of organic vegetables.

By the end of the 1990’s the initiative slowly picked up steam and moved beyond vegetables to meats. First, grass-fed beef. Then, freerange chicken. Later, pastured pork. The production and consumption of lesser known livestock species soon began to gain momentum. These days, “farm-to-table” is a fairly ambiguous concept used in a variety of different ways in restaurants’ marketing, as well as in their kitchens. While some sales and marketing executives and journalists continue to use the term, most chefs and independent restaurant owners have stopped. “Farm-to-table” is an improperly and overly used adjective to describe various levels of food items on a restaurant’s menu which are sourced from local farms and markets.

grown, organic ingredients from the restaurants’ own gardens, as well as from local farms and markets.

Ryan Pernice, Owner of Table & Main and Osteria Mattone in downtown Roswell explains, “We make every possible effort to source through local farms. In fact, our Executive Chef Woolery Back (“Woody”) is the President of the board of the Roswell Farmer’s Market.” Farm-to-table is not just a restaurant philosophy, but is beginning to evolve as a lifestyle choice for many. “Thanks to the many food television series, social media, Pinterest and blogs, consumers are more educated and excited about what’s going on with their restaurant fare. They’re also more savvy and want to know exactly what they’re being served,” explained Chef Woody. At Foundation Social Eatery in East Roswell, Chef Mel Toledo offers, “If you’re a really good restaurant and really good at what you do, then you’re going to try to source from local farmers and use fresh food from local markets as often as you can.” He goes on to explain how the term “farm-to-table” has been abused by some to simply mean, “We’re healthy!” When, in reality, it is much, much more than that. “The use of locally grown food is a win/win/win for the restaurants, the patrons and the local farming industry…not just a ‘healthy choice.”

Very, very few restaurants are purely, entirely “farm-to-table.” Any restaurant using a single garnishing flower picked from outside can now call themselves, “farm-to-table.”

Toledo uses seasonal ingredients from local farms like Buckeye Creek Farms in Woodstock. He frequents the local farmer’s markets in the area. He works with Sweet Apple and Artisans Market Owner Christy Hood who fills his wish list of farm foods.

However, we are happy to offer up a handful of fabulous local restaurants in the Roswell area that do a pretty darn good job of it: Table & Main, Osteria Mattone, Foundation Social Eatery, Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails and Peach & Pork Chop. These restaurants seem to us to go out of their way to source regional cuisine using locally

He elaborates, “How can I use in-season ingredients and make them shine? How can I treat an ingredient differently to get a different texture-- like his menu item which turns cauliflower into a scallop dish with almonds, apple slices and cauliflower puree.


OSTERIA MATTONE Canton Street, Roswell

One thing that Chuck Staley knew when he opened Peach & The Porkchop is that today’s dining guests want to know exactly where their food is coming from. In designing the menu, Staley researched the local farms that could provide hormone-free, all natural foods and would fit into his North meets South menu. “We found the best local farms with the most responsible practices to supply us with fresh eggs, produce and meats…not only for our adult menus, but for our children’s menus as well,” reflects Chuck. “At many restaurants, the adult menu is filled with garden-fresh ingredients, while the kids are given a choice between frozen chicken fingers or pre-packaged Mac & Cheese. One of our focal points at Peach & The Porkchop is to provide the same high quality ingredients for both adults and children. There are more than 20 different farm fresh dishes on our children’s menu,” he adds. Local farms which provide these ingredients to our best restaurants are all located within a 25-mile radius of North Fulton and run by local Georgians who take pride in the products they produce. Some of these farms include Circle-A Farms in Cumming, Fat Land Farms in Roswell, Morning Glory Farms in Cedartown, Maxwell Farms in Dallas, Georgia, Gazaway Farms in Cumming and Buckeye Creek Farms in Woodstock. Chef Derek Dollar at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails in Crabapple sources his ingredients not only from local farms but from the restaurant’s own “Milton’s Acre.” The acre behind this local, fine-dining establishment provides fresh, in-season produce year-round. Dollar says, “People are doing ‘hyper-local’ dining, choosing eateries that have fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
