Editor’s letter:

“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” -Robert Louis Stevenson

Oh to travel! If that was your day job would you not be the happiest, most productive employee. But you’re not Tom Miller, Peter Jenkins or Eugene Foder and neither am I. We travel when time (and mostly money) allows it. Or we travel through the eyes of others - travel books, the Travel Channel, Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown (a personal fave!) and of course, magazines. May we present our yearly Travel Issue. Explore Prague through the eyes of a vegetarian, see the capital city of Kosovo - Pristina and hit the Isla de Encanto - Puerto Rico. Travel with some pretty sustainable biz ladies from JB Journeys, check out our world traveler in sketches, and learn how to create an entire vacation’s worth of outfits from thrifted pieces. And for foord & DIY, we created a day’s worth of food for those road tippers and adorable containers to keep them in.

-Charlie

So my dears, travel as much as your heart and wallet allows you to! It’s good for the soul.

Amber Paranick These books were chosen for those who have traveled widely, as stimulus for those about to travel, and as means of general culture and delightful recreation for those to view the world through the eyes of others.

where chefs eat: a guide to chefs’ favourite restaurants BY JOE WARWICK It’s no secret: Everyone knows that the industry knows where to find great food. From the neighborhood joints to the top-of-the-line establishments, chef contributors (including big names like Michael Anthony, Eric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, the list goes on and on...) give us the inside scoop on where to go for sustenance when we travel. art of travel BY ALAIN DE BOTTON This traveling compaignion focuses more on the abstract, the inner and psychological reasons as to why we travel. Some say we take off because we seek escape or we are running from something we might not want to face. de Botton explores the possibilities of why we yearn for the answers in a far-off place and helps us realize that the answer is sometimes within ourselves.

unsuitable for ladies : an anthology of women travelers. SELECTED BY JANE ROBINSON. Traveling for pleasure was once considered to be a man’s game. Robinson’s anthology, a selection of writings by women covering sixteen centuries of travel writing, proves that the ballsiest of adventurers have often been of the fairer sex and there are few corners of the world that have been untouched by women. Hold onto your horses, ladies.

the kindness of strangers EDITED BY DON GEORGE From the travel book gurus at Lonely Planet comes an anthology of short travel stories written by acclaimed writers such as Dave Eggers, Jan Morris, and Alice Waters that expands upon the human connections we make while traveling. Its stories from around the globe tell us that the unexpected kindness of strangers have the ability to transform the experience of travel. If you need more incentive, the expert on the subject, the Dalai Lama himself, wrote the preface.

The New York Times. 36 Hours. 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada BY: BARBARA IRELAND Based on the popularity of its widely-read online travel column, 36 Hours, The New York Times (along with TASCHEN) published a full-length edition complete with practical weekend itineraries for 150 cities and towns across the United States and Canada. The guide includes places in the country you’d expect to see in a US travel book (NYC sightseeing, the St. Louis arch) but also places you might have never dreamed of visiting in a fully photographed publication by renowned travel editor, Barbara Ireland. The title has since been republished in shorter editions and broken down by U.S. region. A chance to see the country (and Canada!) in one place.

A Reflection of the Past: Travel Magazines

Destination Anywhere: a Brief History of the Travel Magazine by Amber Paranick

Travel magazines offer us the world at our fingertips for a fraction of the cost. Only within the past 100 years has travel (with the advent of high speed rails, minivans, jetliners, etc.) truly expanded our horizons. Some of the earliest general-interest magazines published in the United States (circa 1791-1794) included travel stories. Newspaper editors would assign foreign correspondents to work on travel stories. For instance, the New York Tribune of the 1840’s published travel letters from its foreign correspondents. These letters provided insights into foreign countries beyond the usual political news. This orientation toward the opinions and feelings of ordinary citizens, rather than to politics, came from Horace Greeley’s Founded in NYC in 1901, The Four-Track News (later called Travel) was an early example of a magazine chiefly devoted to travel. The women’s magazine, Ladies’ Home Companion, featured travel articles for its female audience in the late 19th century. The Delineator, incorporated travel articles into its monthly issues alongside dress patterns and articles on cosmetics and literary pieces. A title we are surely all familiar with, The National Geographic got its footing in American society in 1903. In the mid 20th century, consumer and general interest magazines virtually exploded. Smart advertisers set out to reach definite segments of the population, and travel magazines were no exception.

Today, we see travel magazines for every type of traveler, from the armchair tourist seeking to explore a new world from her chair, to the mountain biker seeking to explore a new path to adventure in the farthest region of the world.

Yasmin Bowers of YB Green

It has officially been one year since we introduced you to one of our first Girls on the Up - Yasmin Bowers.

Yasmin is jumping continents this summer to learn the ins and outs of traditional European glass-making techniques, innovative recycling processes and cross-cultural exchanges between post-disaster communities. So of course she makes a perfect World Girl for this year’s Travel Issue! The brains and designer behind YB Green, jewelry made out of glass collected in New Orleans, Yasmin’s grant takes her to Germany for over a year . She’ll be using Germany’s historical reputation and precedence in glassworks and recycling to highlight the parallels between Germany and post-Katrina New Orleans. We asked her to explain a little more about this innovative work and the future of YB Green once she is back stateside. Tell us a bit more about what you will be studying: My research is designed to create a transcontinental relationship where two seemingly different communities are connected by their reunification and recovery, and showcased through social enterprise, art, and the environment. I founded YB Green out of the lack of glass recycling in post-Katrina New Orleans. I used a model of social enterprise to offer a small recycling service to a community in need, while creating accessories that represent an environmental message for others to relate. I’ll be researching the impacts that German reunification has had on environmental issues, especially access and adherence to recycling.

YB Green Studs made out of glass collected in the lower 9th ward of New Orleans 18 Yasmin Bowers | YB Green

The research also includes traditional German glassmaking and metalsmithing and marketing and design plans that convey this experience in an effective, efficient, and sustainable way. YB Green’s global collection will be launched as a celebration of transcontinental cultural exchange. Overall, the project will enhance the repertoire and designs of YB Green and create relationships with communities in Cologne that will be sustained after the fellowship.


world girl How long will you be there? I will be in Germany for 15-18 months. The first 3 months are dedicated to language, the 4th month is dedicated to cultural immersion and the next 11 months are dedicated to the research. What’s your plan for YB Green when you come back? My plan for YB Green is to really put forth an intensional effort in New Orleans. The New Orleans market has been a challenge for me, but it has had more to do with the business/management/relationship side than the customer base. People love the product and the story, and I will be focusing on how the new collection will cater to New Orleans. Part of the design will be a modern take on expressing both cultures while supporting the community in which the raw materials (aka glass bottles) are harvested. Therefore, I will hope to revive my non-profit, Consciously Rebuilding, to create a school program or work with an existing school program that encourages and provides mentorship and micro-funds for junior high and high school students to be entrepreneurial while also helping their community. I want YB Green to represent this overall concept of taking a community issue and creating a service or a product that addresses it--whether it’s in Germany, the 9th Ward, or Washington, DC.

Responsible Adventure Travel JB Journeys is more than a travel agency, it’s an agency that travels.

This virtual small biz (that’s right, the greenest type of office) was started by Jean Warneke and Barbara Baggett. Both veterans of the travel business, these ladies started JB Journeys as a way to sell small experiences that are good for the traveler and the destinations.

Jean & Barbara

Barbara Baggett

Jean & Barbara

“Because we work really close with the client, almost everything is customized, about 80 percent of the travel,” said Jean. “We put you in the hands of someone who maybe you’d be friends with if you lived there.” Destination specialists with first hand experience, Barbara and Jean travel the world. Their travels connect them to local business owners (hotels, places to eat, adventures) and they customize travel packets so that the traveler is connecting to the actual people who benefit from that city’s economy. In essence you shop small business when you travel through JB Journeys. “Our goal is that your vacation has a positive social and environmental impact on the region you are visiting,” said Jean.

No matter what, when you hop a plane, you’re contributing to emissions. But by booking a responsible excursions, there are ways to offset that. According to Jean, their hotels are put through a set of standard rules: Who do they employ (locals or foreign staff)? Large hotel chains usually bring in their own staff, especially in the higher management positions. How do they handle their waste? Is it recycled, composted, etc?

Jean making tortillas in Antigua Guatemala

Food sources? Do they follow the regions natural growing season, source from local vendors or do they ship it in on airplanes from all over the world? Central America has a 12-month local food source, do they use it? How do they do their banking? You want your money to go directly into that local economy you’re visiting. Do they participate in offsets? Certain websites let you offset your traveling carbon footprint by funding environmental causes. “People have to want to do this, the traveler that we have is someone who gives these standards a second thought, said Jean. Not only do Jean and Barbara help connect travelers to great green things, they keep their business on that same level.

Their office is virtual. “We don’t commute or contribute to energy, we give a water bottle to each of our travelers, to cut down on water bottle waste. Their clients are provided virtual documentation through a private Google site, it’s all on your computer or ipad, tablet, smartphone, no more paper,” said Jean. Connecting explorers to Central America and some areas of Africa, Jean and Barbara help you travel in a sustain-a-biz way! The Travel Issue | May/June 2013 | luri & wilma

A Veggie Girl in Prague

A view from the famous Charles Bridge.

Photos & Copy by Megan Paranick Being a veggie isn’t easy when traveling to a new city, let alone another country. Luckily, there are many options for vegetarians worldwide, so you can now take that trip to the faraway land of your choice (even if it’s in the barbecue capital of the world - Lexington, North Carolina).

Now, fresh fruit and veggies are available yearround, making healthier options readily available. When vegetarians do venture to a new city, the best thing to do is plan, plan, plan and make eating part of your travel plans.

Traditional Czech food (heavily influenced by German and Hungarian cuisine) focuses on meat In this feature, we visit a few of my favorite picks for as the main form of protein. Historically, this could a vegetarian in “The Golden City.” be derived from long winters without fresh produce.

Lleka hlava (Clear Head)

This restaurant is located in a renovated house that was first purchased in 1410! The seitan roasts with red cabbage and potato dumplings, the rustic salad (green leafy salad with roasted potatoes, roasted vegetable sausage and beetroot dressing), Pâté from smoked tofu and cashew nuts are a few favorites. For the main course - cranberries and bread, grilled goat cheese with walnuts, served on potatoes au gratin and steamed spinach leaves. The raw cheesecake, made with cashew nuts, walnuts, raisins, coconut, and honey - that’s an absolute must-try!

Maitrea

This lovely, relaxed, sister restaurant to Lleka hlava has a feng shui interior with two fountains, a fireplace and a retreat with Buddha. Its namesake translates to “loving kindness.” Maitrea has something for everyone, including traditional Czech dishes - veganized. Examples of these include: Staročeský dish - pancakes made from beetroot, cabbage, polenta dumplings. Vegan bacon with onions, spicy stew with seitan, served with bread dumplings. Traditional seitan beef with dumplings, cream and cranberries. Marinated grilled vegetarian “no-duck” breast with John Lennon Wall cabbage, dumplings, and fried onion.

Trdelnik

Favorite indulgence (a pastry that’s sweet smell wafts throughout the city)! The Trdelnik can be found in markets, in parks, or at window shops. It is made when dough is wrapped around a cylindrical stick, grilled, then topped with sugar and a walnut mix. Note that this delight does have eggs and butter, so it is not vegan.

In the rare instance you find translating difficult, try translation cards. You can find these at www.selectwisely.com. They have a ton of languages and, in addition to the vegetarian/vegan cards, they have ones with food allergies, intolerances and preferences.

En Route: A Journey to Kosovo

Prizren Fort

Photos & Copy by Amber Paranick The Republic of Kosovo may not be on your “Places to Go before I Die” list. In fact, some people wouldn’t consider this region in Southeastern Europe a travel destination. But you should!

Some of the major reasons tourists travel to the area is for the Ottoman architecture, the religious heritage an its natural landscapes. And it’s on the Euro. 32 En route: A Journey to Kosova

The nation itself is young. Officially indepepndent in 2008, more than half of its residents are under the age of 25. Kosovo also boasts a great location. Though landlocked by Albania to the west, Macedonia to the south & Montenegro to the northwest, it’s a quick plane ride across the Adriatic Sea from Italy and a bus ride away from Greece.


Its largest city and capital is Pristina, where we do the majority of our traveling. But don’t think it’s a large city, a taxi can get you just about anywhere, despite the language barrier. In fact, you can easily get by just knowing a few words and phrases.

travel

“Faleminderit” (thank you) and “ska problem” (no problem, everything’s fine).

a little history...

Long before recent escalations in the country made front-page headlines in the U.S. during the 1990s, Kosovo was famous for a 14th-century battle in which invading Ottoman Turks defeated a Serbian army led by Tsar Lazar at Kosovo Field (aka Field of the Blackbirds) in 1389. Kosovo was under Turkish rule from then on, until the Balkan War (1913) when Serbia took over the territory. After World War II, Kosovo became an autonomous region within Serbia until the late 1980s when the President of Serbia, Slobodan Milosevic, arranged for the elimination of Kosovo’s autonomy in favor of more direct rule from Belgrade. As a result of oppression, Kosovo Albanian leaders led a peaceful resistance movement in the early 1990s and established a parallel government funded mainly by the Albanian Diaspora. The strife between ethnic Albanians and Serbs in the province escalated in the late 1990s into a military occupation of the province by Serb/Yugoslav troops, with the expulsion of some ethnic Albanians and the flight of hundred of thousands of other refugees. NATO forces came to the rescue and pressed the withdrawal of Serb/Yugoslav troops in 1999, and ever since, the province has been occupied by NATO and Russian peacekeeping forces.

Through the work of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), Kosovo now has a framework in place that allows for self-government. Kosovo officially declared its independence in 2008. Today, there are monuments to Bill Clinton, who was then the U.S. President. There’s a large statue of a waving Clinton on the eponymously named Bill Clinton Boulevard, the major artery into the city. The Travel Issue | May/June 2013 | luri & wilma

Places to stay:

The Swiss Diamond Hotel http://swissdiamondhotelprishtina.com/ Centrally located in the heart of Pristina, on its public square on Sheshi Nëna Terezë (named after Mother Theresa), the Swiss Diamond is a luxury resort complete with all the amenities. If there’s anywhere to remedy a tired and aching back, it’s the spa located right in the hotel. You can schedule a massage (or pedicure, like me) or lounge in the pool or Turkish baths, saunas, or salt room.

Hostel Han http://www.hostelhan.com/ An inn within short walking distance to major Pristina sights offering reasonably priced accommodations (and complimentary tours!).

To do:

There are so many hidden gems in the city but you’ve got to get out an explore! The Ethnographic Museum, the clock tower and the Jashar Pasha Mosque are big attractions. To stretch your tired gams after a long day of exploring the city, check out Germia Park. During the summer months, you can go for a swim in the lake. Even though I work in a library during my 9-5 job, I often find myself gravitating to them, even on vacation. The Library of University of Pristina is definitely worth seeing. It looks like a honeycomb on the outside. 34 En route: A Journey to Kosova


travel Ethnographic Museum (Muzeu Etnologjik Emin Gjiku) B-1, Rr. Iliaz Agushi An 18th century house converted into a museum which features exhibits on the art and architecture of the country, as well as the history of the region.

Clock Tower (Sahat Kulla) B-2, Rr. Ylfete Humolli. Constructed of sandstone and bricks in the19th century, the clock (like every other market town in the Ottoman Empire) was built for the purpose of telling residents when it was time to pray. A new clock was installed with help from the French KFOR troops in 2001.

To eat:

A Balkan staple, burek (similar to Greece’s spanakopita), is a tasty snack. Try the spinach or pumpkin stuffed option with a bit of drinkable yogurt. A no-name Mediterranean vegetarian restaurant right off of Mother Theresa Square is the perfect spot to meet tourists and expats alike for dinner after a long day of sightseeing. You won’t find an address listed, but you’ll soon recognize its retro 1950s-style décor and a warm welcome from a bow-tie wearing bartender/maitre d/chef. Typical cuisine is a fusion of-sorts. You’ll find street vendors selling roastedd chestnuts, crepes and snacks. The equivalent of a bathtub gin of the Balkans is called Raki. It’s very strong and cheap hard liquor. Honey is locally produced in the country and is sold in the grocery stores and tiny specialty stores.

It’s unbelievably affordable to dine in Kosovo. Seriously. A Euro for a Peja, a locally produced beer, and 50 euro cents for a macchiato.

Amélie A/B-2, Rr. Fehmi Agani 10 tel. +377 45 5805 80 Named after my favorite movie, and serving my favorite beverages, this coffee & tea chain is just my cup. Also on Rr. Perandori Justinian E1 (open 07:00-21:30) and Rr. Agim Ramadani

Restaurant Pinocchio Rr. 24 Maji nr.115 Arberi Prishtine Situated at the top of the city, the restaurant offers a beautiful view of the city. It’s a perfect place to go on your last night in the city to celebrate. You’ll see family members dining as well as international professionals and diplomats alike.

Day Trip: Prizren During my final day, we took a bus to the historic town of Prizren, located on the slopes of the Šar Mountains. Once you climb the steep hill to the north of the city you’ll reach the medieval fortress, Kaljaja or “Prizren Fortress.” You’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the town below and the mountains in the distance. If you’re lucky enough to be there during the Islamic call to prayer, adhān (which happens 5 times a day), you’ll hear the minarets in harmony from all of the mosques located below (notably the Our Lady of Ljeviš, Minaret of Arasta Mosque, Sinan Pasha Mosque).

Smart ladies’ budget guide to travel by Necole Peralta

When daydreams of sandy beaches and colorful margaritas begin to fill your day or you can almost taste the delicious, handmade pastas in Italy, it might be time to sit down and start planning that much needed vacay. Having doubts on whether or not you can afford it? Well, we’re here to help with some travel tips from Audrey Laster, co-owner of City Travel and owner of Final Faze Productions, an event planning company. Plan early: Your dream vacation can come true (and on a budget), if you plan at least one year out, especially for foreign travel. This gives you an advantage on those early bird deals on airfare and packaged vacations. If you are just a last minute shopper at heart -no worries - shop destination deals. These deals are often found on websites like Expedia, Travelocity, and Hotwire. They can offer you some pretty cool deals to great places, spur of the moment (just how you procrastinators like it). However, keep in mind procrastinating does come with some consequences, many of these deals have black out dates and certain travel restrictions. Get yourself a good travel agent: No, the days of hiring a travel agent to help plan and coordinate your adventures are not over. In fact, a good agent can not only help you plan your dream vacation, but will make sure that all of your activities, fave foods and gorgeous hotels are included-all while staying within your budget.

Audrey, an avid traveler herself, is not your average run of the mill agent. She’s the “wake up at 2am to shop middle of the night specials for clients and book it on the spot” type of agent. She helps her clients navigate through those tricky and often bad “cheap deals” offered on the Internet through her working knowledge of all of the cities and countries she’s traveled.

There are very few places she hasn’t been. So when her clients come to her with a cheap deal, she cautions them to beware of the hotel 44 Travel on a Budget

accommodations and less-than-friendly areas some of these “deals” will put you in. A good agent should know where you are traveling and which hotels will be best suited for your travel needs. Additionally, a great travel agent will be one who jumps on any issues that arise during your travels and corrects them quickly so you can enjoy your stay.


travel

Purchase package deals: To purchase or not to purchase a package deal? That is the question., when it really shouldn’t be. A package deal can literally make all the difference on your wallet by the end of your vacation. And package deals are not just for cruising the royal seas! As Audrey always says “I can package anything, no matter the destination.” This is the kind of talk we love to hear coming from an agent. According to Audrey, a package can bundle your flight, gorgeous hotel stay, activities, food and drinks! Imagine the cost of each when spending a la carte - no gracias.

Tip: When traveling with kiddies, book flights with layovers. This gives you time to get them off a crowded plane and running through the terminal exhausting built up energy. Hey, it beats them tearing down the aisles of the plane, right? You don’t want to be those peeps. Enroll in a Rewards Program:

This is important, especially if you would like your budget to include 4 to 5 star accommodations-and seriously who wouldn’t? If you’re a credit card holder or a frequent traveler, chances are you’re already earning rewards that are probably going unused. Look into what kind of reward programs you qualify for, and enroll to stay abreast on their offerings and expiration dates. When that free night at the Ritz Carlton rolls around, then it’s time to cash in! No time to manage all those points, receipts and such? Check out a great website that allows you to track all of your reward points and notifies you when it’s time to redeem. And yeah, it’s free at www.myrewardstree.com. Last, but certainly not least...

Open a Travel Savings Account:

No matter your financial institute of choice, bank or credit union, you are sure to have a vacation savings account at your fingertips. Some credit unions even offer a small dividend return on your deposit and restrict your access to the funds (forced willpower of sorts) for one full year. With a set amount deducted from your paycheck twice a month for a year, imagine how much you’ll have saved when it’s time to hit the blue skies!

Travel smart!

Load up on style without the bulk. by Beth Barrett

With warmer weather comes lots of traveling, whether it is a short beach weekend or a cross country trip. Even with the excitement of a trip approaching, I always dread…packing! Within the past year I have started traveling more and more, both for work and personal, so I challenged myself to pack smarter and lighter. I found it isn’t as foreboding as I thought, and have come up with some simple tips that can get everything you need for a long weekend trip into an actual weekender bag (imagine that?)!

Recycle garments:

It is unheard of, re-wear the same thing twice in one week? But it can save a ton of space (for those found treasures, of course). Mandy makes six different looks work mixing and matching seven pieces (plus accessories of course).

Multi-use accessories:

Pick items that can be dressed up or down:

Pick two shoes (maybe three):

Pick a special piece for a special day:

Accessories really make an outfit your own, and you can often use them in more than one way. Plus they take up so little room! Mandy is wearing the red pleather piece as a belt for a night out and as a fun necklace on another evening!

It can be done ladies! Don’t get me wrong I am a shoe gal, but they take up so much space in your luggage. Most of the time you only need a pair of flats and heels (or wedges), and Mandy makes two pairs of shoes work with six (very different) outfits.

Pieces can easily be dressed up and down to make an outfit work for both evening and day. Mandy makes the white silk blouse daytime appropriate by pairing it with pants and flats, but takes it evening with funky heels and a skirt!

Every girl has that special piece that makes her feel unique and free, so make sure to bring that on your trip (you can even disregard tip 1 here)! Mandy is wearing a pink and white polka dot dress that would make her stand out in any crowd. The Travel Issue | May/June 2013 | luri & wilma

Double duty makeup by Anika Rich

When you’re trying to pack, the goal is to make all of your things fit in as small a bag as possible (checked bagage fees, no thanks!). But what if you could cut your packing list down to half? Well, when it comes to your beauty routine, you can do just that. Here are some products that have a number of uses, which saves you valuable space in your carry-on. Lip balm will not only smooth out chapped lips, but also works as an effective brow gel. You could even use it on small dry patches on your skin if the need arises. Hair conditioner can double as shave gel. It will leave behind silky-smooth skin!

Lipstick can become your cream blush, depending on the color. A red, pink, or peach colored lipstick would transfer perfectly to cheeks. Be sure to blend well! Bronzer not only gives a subtle glow to the places where light hits your face, but can also be used as a neutral eye shadow for a natural day time look! A few other multipurpose beauty things include cotton balls, clear nail polish, and toothpaste. You never know what you might need in a pinch!

Day Trippin’ A portable road trip lunch or dinner packed in adorable DIY’d containers.

Photos, styling & copy by Mandy Pellegrin

DIYing your own lunch totes is a perfect way to banish the boring and ensure you’re using something reusable and eco-friendly. Plus it makes road trips fun & easy on your wallet (save those potential fast food dollars with yummy grub you made yourself). To that end, we’re showing you how to make your own lunch duffel, hoagie and utensil keepers, and travel napkin.

70 Travelin’’ DIYs


see & do

To make all these projects, you’ll need a spool of thin ribbon , 8” of thicker ribbon, and the following cuts of fabric: •7.5” diameter circle (lunch duffel) •15” x 25” rectangle (lunch duffel) •4” x 22” rectangle (utensil keeper) •6” x 26” rectangle (hoagie keeper) •17” x 17” square (travel napkin)

Mandy Pellegrin

Lunch Duffel

Step 1: With right sides facing inward, starting about 1” from the shorter end, sew the 25” edge of the fabric rectangle (the duffel’s sides) to the edge of the circle (the duffel’s bottom). This stitch should begin and end at the exact same point. In doing so, leave the shorter ends of the duffel’s sides loose, and don’t overlap them. Step 2: Pin the unsewn ends of the duffel’s sides together. Beginning at that start/stop point in the previous step, sew the ends together. Leave an un-sewn gap about ¼” long about 1” from the top edge of the bag. Trim any excess fabric and the seam allowances away – preferably with a set of pinking shears.

Step 3: Fold the top, unsewn edge over about an inch. Take a piece of thin ribbon about 8” longer than the circumference of the duffel, and tuck it under the folded edge. Thread the ends of the ribbon through the ¼” unsewn gap. Pin in place. Step 4: Stitch the folded edge down all the way around about 5/8” from the top. Turn right side out.

Step 5 (optional): Add a leather strap by wrapping it all the way around the bag and securing in place with 2 rivets on each side and 2 on the bottom. To stabilize the rivets, be sure to include a small cut of leather on the back side of each rivet inside the bag.

Utensil & Hoagie Keepers

world girl

Step 1: For each of the keepers, fold each rectangle in half lengthwise with right sides facing. Stitch along each of the long sides, leaving a ¼” unsewn gap about 1” from the top of one of the sides of each keeper.

Add the drawstring and finish them off by repeating steps 3 and 4 from the Lunch Duffel tutorial.

Recipes & copy by Chris McLaurin Photography by Roy Moody Don’t have time for a global adventure? Try a quick weekend road trip. Call up a few friends, pack your picnic basket, and hit the road. None of these dishes need to be warmed so are great while in the car or at a scenic overlook. This sandwich in particular, gets better with a few hours. There’s nothing that can get soggy so you don’t have to worry about a limp, sad sandwich. Roll your windows down, turn the music up, and enjoy!

Basil

In the summer basil is everywhere. Find it in simple salads, on top of pizzas, and even in ice creams. After a trip to the farmer’s market or to your backyard garden you might end up with more basil than you know what to do with. These recipes will help extend the life of this fine herb and keep you smiling.

Basil Oil Ingredients: Olive Oil and Basil Putting It All Together: Warm oil, add basil, and allow to steep for several hours in a warm place (discard the basil after using). This flavored oil is great in salad dressings, on top of pizzas, or as a great way to finish any chocolate and berry dessert!

86 1 Ingredient, 3 techniques | Basil

Basil Oil


Try: Basil - Walnut - Parm - Lemon - Red Chili Flake - Olive Oil Basil - Pistachio - Goat Cheese - Garlic Lime Juice - Olive Oil Basil - Almond - Feta - Roasted Red Pepper Red Wine Vinegar - Olive Oil Putting It All Together: Pesto is extremely simple to make. Just throw your basil, nuts, cheese, acid, and any other flavorings into a food processor. Turn on and add a steady stream of olive oil. You can decide how much oil to use. Less and you’ll have a more rustic pesto, more and you’ll have a smoother spread. Season and you’re all done. To extend the life of your pesto top with a thin layer of olive oil. This will keep air away and your pesto a bright green!

July/August 2013

One easy use for basil is pesto. And while your general pesto is (basil - pine nuts - garlic - parm - lemon - olive oil) you can definitely vary it up depending on what you have. An easy guide is basil, nut, cheese, and acid)
