ave a hankering for rib-eye, pork belly, tri tip, short ribs, oyster steak or some Boston butt? Look no further than the wellstocked, marbled meat options in the butcher case at Belcampo Meat Co., which opened its doors at Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village in late June. Belcampo’s claim to fame in an industry where the phrase “farm to table” has almost lost its meaning is that the company has total control over every single step of production, from start to finish. Belcampo raises its own cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, goats, lambs and sheep on a 20,000-square-foot farm at the base of Mount Shasta. The company is genetically selecting for heritage breeds and those that thrive in a fairly extreme ecosystem. The animals are fed organic greens grown on the farm. They are handled humanely in accordance with rigorous Animal Welfare Association standards. At the end of their lives, they are not trucked miles away, but brought 20 minutes down the road to Belcampo’s slaughterhouse with holding pens designed by Temple Grandin, a renowned animal behavior expert and consultant to

the meat-processing industry. The meat is all hand processed and never distributed wholesale; it all stays within Belcampo’s steadily growing network of restaurants and butcher shops. “Meat is the scariest thing to buy in America,” said Belcampo CEO Anya Fernald on a recent afternoon, sitting at one of a few tables outside of what used to be Joe Simitian’s office in the rear of the upscale Town & Country shopping center. “There are lots of places you go and you turn over a package of ground beef and it’s like, ‘This package contains product from Mexico, USA, Uruguay and Brazil.’ Do you really want to feed your family that?” Belcampo is all about challenging long-held conceptions about meat. The big one is that it’s bad for you. Belcampo’s organic meat has verified a one-to-one ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, a hard-to-achieve balance that’s sought-after for good health. Americans typically consume too many omega-6 fats and not enough omega-3 (typically a ratio of 15 to one). Omega-6s are pro-inflammatory, while omegaContinued on next page

3s have an anti-inflammatory effect, so striking a balance in one’s diet is considered important, but hard to do. Another is that cattle should only be grass-fed for two years before switching to grain to fatten them up. Belcampo animals are kept on grass for 34 or 35 months, a full year longer than most farms. This results in meat with a richer taste and more marbling than is typical, Fernald said. Fernald, who grew up in Palo Alto, arrived at some of these conclusions after spending time in rural Europe and Africa, observing much simpler food ecosystems. She graduated from Gunn High School in 1993 and headed to college with clear interest in food, but not knowing what to do with it. After graduating from college, she secured a $20,000 Watson Fellowship for independent study and travel outside the U.S. to study cheesemaking in rural communities in southern Europe and northern Africa. After the year ended, she came back to the United States, but soon returned to Sicily to do business development and marketing for a cooperative of cheese makers.

“It was the first time in my life I had been in a place where it seemed like the poorer you were, the better you ate,” she said. People ate foraged vegetables in between ice cream and brioche for breakfast, raw meat and perhaps three pounds of fresh cheese each day. Fernald experienced a health transformation on this diet, she said. She lost weight; her energy levels went up; little physical ailments that bothered her before went away. “Coming from fat-free mania” back home, this got her thinking. She eventually left Italy and got involved in the Slow Food movement in the U.S. She worked with Alice Waters to organize the first Slow Food Nation event in San Francisco and founded consulting firm Live Culture Company to help small-scale artisan food companies become profitable. Live Culture introduced her to Todd Robinson, a client with deep pockets who was interested in meat, had some land and wanted to make a profitable play for some sort of sustainable, responsible business concept. In January 2010, Fernald developed the concept for Belcampo, pitched it to Robinson and he got on board. By November 2012, they opened their first

butcher shop and restaurant in Larkspur. Since then, Belcampos have popped up in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, downtown Los Angeles and Palo Alto, with another on its way to Santa Monica this fall and a deal recently inked in West Hollywood. “I’ve been looking for an opportunity in Palo Alto since day one,” she said. Not only does she have roots here — she grew up on the Stanford University campus with her two professor parents and her first jobs were as a paper girl for the Palo Alto Weekly and at Saint Michael’s Alley — she saw a gap in the local meat offerings. “I want this to become a great Palo Alto institution,” she said. This means Belcampo has all the standard stuff — New York steaks, trip tip, bacon, brisket, smoked ham, roast turkey breast, sausages, even hot dogs — and also the not so standard. Ask about Belcampo’s oyster steak, chicken giblets, matambrito, goat or beef tongue. The butchers behind the counter are knowledgeable, friendly and won’t make you feel stupid for not knowing what something is, according to Fernald. Each cut of meat has a handy card with

Signs not only display the price and name of the cut, but also a diagram showing where on the animal it originated

its name, price and an image of the part of animal it came from. Because of the limited space at this 900-square-foot operation and the nature of other Town & Country tenants, Belcampo’s prepared food options are somewhat limited. But that hasn’t stopped them. There’s a pulled pork bun with roasted jalapeùo and cilantro aioli, daikon and pickled carrots ($5); a lamb belly bun ($5) with meat that’s slow braised for four hours with paprika, garlic and cumin; a rotating sausage offering that comes with tailored toppings on a buttered bun ($8); and a hefty meatball sandwich with tomato sauce, provolone, garlic butter and basil ($12). Recently added are chicken and steak salads and Fernald said they plan to offer marinated meats and prepared dinners. The kitchen is headed up by Antonio Varillas, a chef from Peru with a degree in economics from Santa Clara University. The butcher case has its own head: Joey Ada, a local selftaught butcher who loves cutting lamb and Belcampo’s nose-totail philosophy (you’ll even find leather banquettes at the San Francisco restaurant made from their cattle).

for some of the cuts (oyster steak goes for $24.99 per pound; tri tip, $20.99; slab bacon, $14.99), but that’s the true cost of production for an operation like Belcampo, Fernald says. “I’ll pay double if I know that (the meat) is healthy and it’s clean,� she said, “but our product is not necessarily for everyone. There is a beautiful culture in the U.S. that celebrates cheap food. Part of what we’re doing is challenging the cost or talking about the cost associated with that cheap food and saying, ‘Here’s the real cost of food.’ “This is definitely not cheap food, but it’s clean food,� she said. “It’s gratifying food.�

(Century 16, 20) Unless you’re an 8-year-old just getting acquainted with them, you probably made up your mind about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles long, long ago. After all, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s heroes in a half-shell debuted 30 years ago, when their cheeky action adventures had the foresight to spoof the ‘80s even while they were happening. Well, they’re back on the big screen again for a fifth goround after three ‘90s live-action films and a 2007 CGI-animated one-off. The new picture, titled simply “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” blends live-action (most of the settings and all of the humans) with CGI (most of the action and all of the nonhuman characters). And you’re either really excited to see them again (and, if so, may I just say, “Cowabunga, dude”) or have already turned to something more interesting, like the real estate listings. So that leaves it to me to describe the reboot by Jonathan Liebesman, a Hollywood go-to-guy for mid-range hor-

ror pictures and action flicks no one else wants (“Wrath of the Titans,” anyone?). Look, despite the looming presence of crap-maestro Michael Bay as producer, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” isn’t so terrible. It fits the brief, as it were, with some variations on the concept that don’t challenge the fundamentals, four of which are in the title. So the TMNT — Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello — study ninjitsu under a similarly mutated rat named Splinter (to whom an unbilled Tony Shalhoub gives voice) and make their debut as vigilantes battling back the criminal Foot Clan. This gets the attention of fluff-piece reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox), who aspires to serious journalism and turns out to have all sorts of history with the people and creatures currently making news: industrialist Eric Sachs (William Fichtner), the Turtles and Splinter. Pulling the strings of the Foot Clan is Shredder (Tohoru Masamune), a big guy in a robotic samurai suit who seems to have escaped from one of Bay’s “Transformers” flicks. O’Neil’s surprising ties to the Turtles may rankle purists,

but to be fair, this isn’t “War and Peace.” It’s a movie with a nunchuk-wielding reptile standing over 6 feet tall, drooling over pizza and making boner jokes about Megan Fox. So we can be choosy about what we complain about. To be fair to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” it’s aimed squarely at action-loving tykes, and they’ll duly love it. The script is an unironic throwback to ‘80s action movies (OK, some irony when they make Batman cracks), and though the blank Fox is less a star than a placeholder, her foil is Will Arnett as a funny cameraman. Most of the one-liners are pretty lame, but kids won’t agree, and they’ll be held rapt by the head-spinning (3D, if you want it) action, from acrobatic fights to an insane chase down a snowy mountain and a climax over Times Square ripped wholesale from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” And what does it all amount to? Nothing more than a seemingly self-descriptive bit of scripting uttered by Arnett: “Froth. It’s nice.” Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence. One hour, 41 minutes. — Peter Canavese

clash comedy, travelogue and romance gently establishes, in middlebrow just-go-with-it fashion, the tone of a fable. The opening scenes in Mumbai pulse with existential zen-ofcooking hooey: leading character Hassan Kadam fondles a sea urchin and is declared “the boy who knows�; his Mama (Juhi Chawla) instructs him, “You cook to make ghosts ... can you taste them?� and then Mama obligingly expires in an almost comically abrupt fire started by a crowd of election rioters. Mama’s death sends the family on a Search for the Right Place to Be (the film’s primary theme) that takes the Kadams to the likes of London and Rotterdam before Papa (Om Puri) gets ghostly approval from Mama to settle in the south of France, in the picture-book village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val. Papa and the grown Hassan (Manish Dayal) are “eat local� adherents (except for Mama’s suitcase of spices, to which they cling), and

wherever they will live and cook must have ideal juicy, colorful produce. But wouldn’t you know it? Papa’s ghost-approved spot to resettle and open a restaurant is directly across a thin road (let’s call the distance between properties a hundred feet) from Le Saule Pleureur, the Michelin-star-awarded haute cuisine pride of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val. There, prim and proper Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren) rules the roost, with tall, tightly coiled posture and hovering nose. To satisfy the plot, the widowed Madame Mallory goes through the five stages of disbelief: xenophobic disdain, “this means war� stridency, fear, jealousy and, of course, acceptance that Indian food is actually pretty good (and that Papa is rather charming...). Meanwhile, Hassan keeps proving his bona fides, first as chef of Papa’s Mumbai Maison, then as the French-cuisine pupil of Mallory’s pretty sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le

Bon) and, at last, Mallory. Though it’s difficult to swallow the characters and situations, and the film certainly drags as it approaches the two-hour mark, “The Hundred-Foot Journey� is actually a bit less annoyingly cloy than Hallstrom’s “Chocolat.� . What makes the fable function shouldn’t surprise. The performance ingredients, in and of themselves, are nothing special, but together they help to bind the meal into something hearty enough to tide over the film’s target audience. Mirren and Puri’s experience and innate charm are invaluable, and the ingenues Dayal and Le Bon prove sexy in their subtleties. Add in ideal locations and some good food-porn sequences, and “The Hundred-Foot Journey� makes for a tasteful enough meal. Just don’t blame me if you’re hungry in an hour. Rated PG for thematic elements, some violence, language and brief sensuality. Two hours, two minutes. — Peter Canavese

INTO THE STORM 01/2 (Century 16, 20) Sometimes the line between real-life tragedy and action escapism is mighty fine. Wide-release movies have been known to get cold feet (post-9/11 and post-mass shootings) but always return to the well of exploiting our anxieties for cash. Perhaps that’s why the tornado-packing “Into the Storm� feels like a disaster movie (all but a remake of “Twister�) crossed with a horror-movie aesthetic (the found-footage craze). It used to be a showbusiness gag: how will it play in Peoria? Given that Illinois is tornado country, one might well wonder. Scripted by young writer John Swetnam and directed by Steven Quale, “Into the Storm� features a motley, essentially unproven cast in a rail-thin tale of survival. Though largely composed of faux found footage from the pro cameras of reality-TV storm chasers and TV newscopters and the consumer-grade handicams of high-schoolers, Swetnam also includes omniscient-narrative footage when the conceit requires, diluting the purity of the style. It’s a style that, already tired — yep, “The Blair Witch Project� was fifteen years ago — has the added effect here of insensitive tackiness in the context of global climate change and an apparent increase in the frequency and severity of fatal storms. It’s ironic but true that

Richard Armitage heads the large cast of “Into The Storm�.

“Twister� remains more palatable by being a consciously entertaining action fantasy, a cinematic roller-coaster, rather than a hellish “you are there� safari tour through death and destruction. The paper-thin characters include the aforementioned storm chasers (Sarah Wayne Callies of “The Walking Dead,� Matt Walsh of “Veep,� Jeremy Sumpter of “Friday Night Lights�...), high-schoolers on graduation day (wet blankets Max Deacon and Alycia Debnam Carey, and wiseacre Nathan Kress), and the boys’ cranky vice-principal dad (Richard Armitage of “The Hobbit�), who inevitably finds paternal redemption. Tornadoes strike: these good folks dodge them or chase them and regret it. “But how are the tornadoes?� you ask. Indeed, they are the real stars, and the digital effects

increasingly wow as the picture goes on. Conserving budget and building suspense, Quale uses the ol’ “Jaws� technique: hold back the shark. Early storm sequences tease with cameras knocked out of commission before paying off with anything too close to a money shot, the better to induce gasps with the multiple climaxes to follow. If there’s one thing Hollywood is good for these days, it’s delivering exactly what’s on the tin. The results tend to be mulchy and of dubious artfulness, but will anyone really feel cheated by a carefully marketed genre pic like “Into the Storm�? It’s for people who want to be scared by storms for 89 minutes, and they’re welcome to it. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense destruction and peril, and language including some sexual references. One hour, 29 minutes. — Peter Canavese

MOODY, Public Administrator of the County of Santa Clara be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on August 22, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in Dept.: 12 of the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located at 191 N. First St., San Jose, CA, 95113.
