i’m a self-professed food snob for many reasons.

I had a father who was way ahead of his time, and I often think favorably about my childhood experiences growing up on an organic farm in Lancaster County. I can almost taste the sweet homemade jams and jellies squishing out of my sandwiches with each bite. At Fig®, we believe that food is at its most powerful when it’s an expression of love. Whether knowingly or blithely unaware, each of us explores our relationship to food and its connection to our identity in all forms— personal, familial, and cultural—every time we eat. Everything about eating: how much we consume, who makes it, who we share it with, and how we acquire it is rich with meaning. Our attitudes, practices, and rituals surrounding food become indisputable facts about our most intrinsic beliefs about the world and ourselves. That’s what food is all about. It’s personal. It connects us to a person, a place, or a special moment in time. Our society has reached a tipping point when it comes to satisfying appetites and simply feeding. We’re capable of more. We crave sustenance and significance. Everything, then, becomes an opportunity to add to our food histories. The stories we tell, the recipes we write, they become the seedlings for future generations. As we break bread and say grace or simply garnish and gratify—the beginnings unfold. This issue we are proud to present insider tips about your favorite local restaurants. We are happy to share fun facts about heritage brands made in Lancaster. And finally, we’re pleased to honor those farmers, keepers, and growers of wild things who don’t just innovate—but surprise and captivate us with pure magic wonder. To the chefs who skillfully lead us through taste bud adventures and do so with humility and bravery—thank you. We’re encouraged and blessed to live in Lancaster and we implore you to explore and celebrate more than just a pretty plate—but the art of truly tasting and savoring the immeasurable fullness of life.

the highly anticipated arrival

of King Street’s 26 East manifests top-notch culinary delights, entertainment options, and an elevated experience unlike anything else in Lancaster. The first floor is Barberet Bistro & Bakery. The second floor is an event space, and the third floor is Altana—a rooftop lounge with intensely breathtaking views of the City. Barberet Bistro & Bakery is the namesake of Cedric and Estelle Barberet, a French couple who have a passion for creating something beautiful. Cedric is a renowned pastry chef with training and skills from world-class restaurants and clubs. Estelle has mastered the art of charm and is the first face customers see when they arrive. The bakery sells macarons—the jewel of French pastries. “The selections are very flavorful with bright colors that are appealing to the eyes,” Cedric says. He also creates smooth and rich truffles as well as individual pastries and large cakes—from raspberry and coconut tarts to something more elevated like milk chocolate desserts with crème brûlée centers. Patrons love the flawless chocolate sponge cake and not-toosweet summertime favorite: vanilla macarons with lime mousse and raspberry gelée. Scrumptious gluten-free options are also available.

Cedric & Estelle Barberet

The bistro offers a comfortable and affordable dining experience. Led by Chef Tyler Boell, the vision is a distinctive taste of quality within a casual and welcoming environment. “I always wanted to be somewhere you could create something to love. And I think Lancaster is that perfect place,” Cedric says. Learn more at 26eastlancaster.com. 6 26 east king street 26eastlancaster.com

iconically lancaster FINE DINING DOWNTOWN

in chef we trust

Owner Dean Oberholtzer originally wanted The Belvedere to be a sandwich shop. It was his chef who convinced him it should be a fine dining restaurant.

The Grilled Caesar Salad is the most famous and bestselling item on the menu. It was inspired by a trip Dean took to a Washington, D.C. restaurant. In fact, it’s so popular that The Belvedere now offers options like chicken, salmon, tuna, and scallops.

such great heights

The Belvedere (Italian for “beautiful view”) earned its name from the gorgeous 4th floor view of the City. John Rohrer, a tobacco tycoon from Strasburg, built the house in 1869 as a private residence. 402 north queen street 717.394.2422 belvederelancaster.com 11

food brings us together in a way that nothing else can. We live in a society that’s obsessed with food, and from the moment we learn to differentiate what we like from what we do not, we are building a knowledge base of rules we abide by when we eat.

Read some of our Fig® food rules and remember that from the pleasant to the persnickety, the rules were meant to be broken. Label less and enjoy more!

“I always order a salad and a side of French fries. It’s a balanced meal, right?” – marie kojitani

“When ordering Long Johns: 1. It has to be Achenbach’s. 2. Go with peanut butter.” – theresa yerger

“GREEN IS GOOD!”

“Order everything—ok, maybe not everything—with a side of barbecue sauce.” – josh seibert

– emma parnham

“Eat something sour each day. Pickled Beets!” – amy hynes

“EVERYTHING (YES, EVEN CAKE) IN MODERATION.” – jena miller

“Always eat with friends.” – deb brandt

“CUT OUT MEAT—OR TRY EATING LESS.”

“Moderation is ok for some things but, when possible, eat all of the meats!” – mike miville

“Eat to live, don’t live to eat.” – nicole patterson

high fashion

Owner Susan Louie used to be a fashion designer in New York City. She brings that same attention to texture, color, pattern, comfort, and art to Citronnelle. She designed the space for balance, incorporating elements of earth, wind, air, and fire. Citronnelle is French cuisine and midcentury modern style mixed with Asian and Moroccan details.

Try the 8 oz. Prime Cut Sirloin Steak (or the Market Vegetable Bisteeya if you prefer vegetarian cuisine), and it’s BYOB for maximum enjoyment. Special date? Ask for Table 7—the best seat in the house.

where it all started

Chef Rafael grew up in his mother’s kitchen near Brooklyn’s Chinatown. He is classically trained in French as well as German, Italian, American, and several Asian cuisines. “You have to be happy when you cook. Your energy goes into the food. The flavors will sing if you are happy,” he says. 110 west orange street 717.208.6697 citronnellepa.com

Expect a changing menu, as the chefs are constantly re-evaluating what’s new, what’s fresh, what customers like—and it’s all made in an open kitchen.

something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

The fruit and yogurt parfait (the #1 breakfast item) found its way onto the menu after owners Matt and Kathleen Smucker served it at their wedding in 2010. The blue bicycle in Café One Eight’s window was also at their wedding and came out of her dad’s barn.

Kathleen’s mother always taught her to have something red at the table to make the food more attractive. Diners will find pops of red on the plate from ingredients like strawberries and roasted red peppers.

love is burritos

The Lancaster Burrito is a farmer’s breakfast in a wrap—made with ham, sausage, bacon, eggs, shredded potatoes, and American cheese. Café One Eight sold more than 1,300 Lancaster Burritos in 2014.

community alive and thriving, with the sounds of laughter and family, the three couples reimagined the space and the menu.

“We’re all friends and neighbors. We would all come here during the summer and when the place went up for sale, we all thought it was a great idea and a great opportunity because it’s a cornerstone property and a neighborhood gathering place,” said Dave Brown, the primary owner and operator.

Customers will soon be able to enjoy the new outdoor patio as well as interior seating and wifi. All the cold, creamy choices like sundaes, milkshakes, and floats will be available. Both hot and cold sandwiches will rotate and include ham, turkey, and roast beef paninis and unique kid classics like peanut butter and banana and grilled cheese sandwiches. Healthy and seasonal salad options and homemade soups will also grace the menu.

Dave and his wife Emily as well as Jason and Melissa Cavallaro and Jim and Dawn Cox have been friends for years. The previous owners closed the shop last July, citing family health reasons. Wanting to keep the symbol of

“I brainstormed the name and realized a peach is an exceptionally attractive person or thing. What I like about the name is that it allows me to define the brand according to my own terms.” – Latoya Holt, Owner & Buyer

fresh face: ONE LUCKY PEACH to everything there is a season. peaches are no different. They are at their best

near the middle or end of summer— offering only a tiny window of opportunity for a truly exceptional and rare taste of goodness. Owner and buyer Latoya Holt is a refreshing addition to the 300 Block. She’s ambitious, creative, and smart. Her boutique is simple, yet inspired, and casual, yet polished. “One Lucky Peach is where you’ll find amazing items below $100 and also where you’ll find splurgeworthy closet staples, little luxuries, and stylish investment pieces,” Latoya

says. Shoppers will appreciate her careful consideration of quality brands like leather accessories company Status Anxiety and contemporary clothing lines like The 5th Label and Lovers & Friends. Latoya knew she would one day own her own business. She grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and quickly learned the importance of customer service. After working other jobs and learning more about herself and her strengths, she started freelancing as a personal stylist. “Everything had been leading me to want to open my own store.” When the time came to choose a location, she knew it had to be

Lancaster—just a short drive from her York home. She remembered the First Fridays she’d attended with her husband and her daughter. “I love Lancaster. I love to see growth, and Lancaster is very progressive and thriving and connected.” “The One Lucky Peach customer is a beautiful mess. She has effortless style. She’s fun and funny and confident. And she’s perfectly imperfect,” Latoya says with a sweet laugh. Everything is made beautiful in its time. Visit One Lucky Peach or shop online at oneluckypeach.com—with available pick up in store option.

Carol Campbell, Owner

authentic: CAROL CAMPBELL carol campbell believes that being healthy is a universal goal. For years she worked as an elementary school counselor for the School District of Lancaster, guiding children to make practical, healthy decisions— to care about themselves and others.

Sponsor of Fig® Authentic and supporter of Skinny Park Juice, Patti S. Spencer, Esq., of Spencer Law Firm in Lancaster, focuses on estate planning, tax controversies, expert witness work, and is a nationally recognized author. SPENCERLAWFIRM.COM

She remembers the fun of cooking with fruits and vegetables from a childhood favorite: Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen. Credited with moving plant-based cuisine to the center of the American dinner plate, she quite literally changed the way many Americans, and one Lancaster teenager, thought about food. Carol reminisces about her first vegetarian meal at Liquid Earth in Baltimore. “I had a green juice, probably celery, kale, and lemon with a shot of wheatgrass—and then I had a raw taco served in a collard green leaf and it was the best food ever,” she says.

That good, healthy feeling she got from that meal stuck with her and opening a café or juice shop was something she longed to share with her community. After raising her two sons and watching them graduate from college, the timing was right. In November of 2013 she made the leap of faith and opened Skinny Park Juice—named after the linear park that runs behind it. “I care about people a lot,” she says. “Helping people live healthfully—and enjoying their experience at Skinny Park Juice—means so much.” And she is finding it exciting to see people enjoy the benefits that super foods and an organic lifestyle can provide.

Meet new local businesses that add to the texture of our thriving City. Look for our Fig® Fresh Faces in every issue.

“For me, it all began when I would go into stores and I would be uninspired. I really couldn’t find things that were unique.”

Ashley Mudge, Owner & Buyer

fresh face: BECAUSE I LIKE U kindness in giving creates love.

Because I Like U is thoughtfully displayed—thanks to Ashley’s background in fashion merchandising and window design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. “My main goal is that I want to make people happy. I want customers to come into the store and be inspired to think of someone else.”

“For me, it all began when I would go into stores and I would be uninspired. I really couldn’t find things that were unique,” says owner and buyer Ashley Mudge.

Gift givers will find imaginative gifts for every occasion. The store is filled with curated items from Etsy as well as other small companies and designers. Stationery, paper goods, jewelry, and baby gifts to home and décor items and other unexpected surprises, there’s definitely something for everyone.

Because I Like U is a destination for everything necessary in the gift-giving process: from the gift and the card to the presentation and packaging— it makes sharing sentiments a fun and easy experience.

Because I Like U started as a blog where Ashley would write about distinctive gift ideas and addons. After gaining a following both online and at trade shows, Ashley realized people wanted to know where to buy her items. “It has always been my dream to have a store. I really knew I wanted to be on the 300 Block because I think this block is a real gem,” she says.

“Sometimes it’s about those ‘just because’ moments,” Ashley says. “Just because you like them…or you love them,” she says with a smile. Shop at the new location or online at becauseilikeu.com.

guess who’s back in town? Rumor has it that the President has been practicing his golf swing. He was recently spotted working on his short game back at Wheatland with his niece Harriet. Evidently they plan to attend the U.S. Women’s Open this July. Buchanan has also been spotted dining, dancing, shopping at Lancaster Central Market, and enjoying a glass of Madeira at a local pub. And on First Fridays we’re told he’ll be downtown cruising around in his beloved Jag convertible or strolling Gallery Row in search of collectible art.

At Fig®, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. For 2015, we have chosen three innovative nonprofits whose good works contribute immensely to our thriving, local community:

Milagro House, A Week Away, & Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic. Please join us as we support these inspiring causes this year.

PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING THESE

milagro house Milagro House has served the Lancaster Community since 1998 providing education, housing, and counseling to women and their children who are experiencing homelessness. They offer an on-site GED school taught by a certified teacher as well as a post-secondary track, and are the only organization in the community that offers homeless mothers the opportunity to further their education—a key ingredient to obtaining employment and providing a self-sustaining income. milagrohouse.org

worthy causes

a week away The mission of A Week Away is to coordinate and finance respites for individuals and their loved ones who are dealing with a life-threatening illness. They can’t cure someone’s illness, but they can give them the hope to keep fighting. They take care of everything from travel expenses to medical care to lost wages. The burden of battling a life-altering diagnosis does not fall solely on the shoulders of the patient, but on the caregivers and loved ones as well. Their goal: provide a stressfree experience to the whole team. aweekaway.org

second sky VOICES

PRESENTS SECOND SKY TUESDAY, JULY 23 | TELLUS360

You’re invited to a Fig® Presents concert event at Tellus360, on July 23. For tickets and info, visit figlancaster.com/voices or tellus360.com.

Wes Dilorio & Bill Lascek-Speakman

“A band influenced by The Beatles and electronic music is a wonderful combination. Of course I’m a huge fan of both, plus add in anyone who enjoys the band Genesis. You should check out Second Sky.” HELEN LEICHT, WXPN

80 figlancaster.com

FIG® VOICES IS SPONSORED BY


URBAN WANDERLUST second sky is the trio of singer Billy Medina, bassist Wes DiIorio, and drummer/producer Bill Lascek-Speakman. The group regularly recruits local talent— including sitarist John Protopapas and horn section Todd Fulginti, Darnell Scott, and Alex Banias as well as vocalist Tina M. The singer, Billy Medina, lives in Vermont while their record label, Rhythm & Culture Music, is based in Washington, D.C. Their self-described sound blends past with future, and organic with electronic; it mixes travels and music from other cultures. Speakman laughs as he says, “I think that we try to draw from that urban feeling of a mix of cultures and maybe that is reflected in our sound—it’s more like urban wanderlust than backpacking barefoot through somewhere.” Their newest album is titled Touching the Surface. “It is influenced by the Beatles; there’s a lot of dub production involved in what we do and that is sort of labeled as ‘trippy’,” Speakman says. Using pop, classical Indian, jazz, and chillwave, their distinctive sound creates an expansive imaginary landscape—for some listeners, an escape. DiIorio says they like to forge a space with music that shapes something inside the listener, a folding into self. “It’s more like setting a mood. It’s good headphone music,” he says. The name Second Sky is based on finding new boundaries beyond visible boundaries. But, of course, they also prefer a certain amount of ambiguity. One thing is for certain: The band is happy to record here (sometimes at Tellus360’s Sugar Tank Studio) and use musicians from this area. Second Sky’s desire for that urban wanderlust and yet locally precocious sound is perfectly suited here in Lancaster. Speakman says, “I think Lancaster has a great music scene that we love being a part of.” Visit soundcloud.com/secondsky to listen to tracks off Touching the Surface.

With advice from a friend, she turned to the Lancaster County Council of Churches and was back on her feet in a month. “They are a blessing!” she exclaims. Now, the Council of Churches will be able to support even more families with their new Food Hub. The Community Foundation is proud to support the innovative new facility that will provide fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables.

Dr. Ton-That & Rebekah Cafrelli

live fully

HEALING WHAT PAINS “about 5 years ago the arthritis in my neck went from being moderate to severe,” said Rebekah Cafrelli. She was having headaches as well as intense arthritis pain in her neck. The exacerbating cycle was awful. She was tired of having her days robbed of enjoyment. “The pain affects your whole life. It takes away your day,” she said. After years of trying physical therapy and various medications that would lose their efficacy, “acupuncture seemed time tested and I felt it was worth a try,” she said.

Rebekah was fortunate to find Lancaster NeuroScience & Spine Associates. Dr. TonThat explained the history of acupuncture as well as the current thinking. Each twenty-minute appointment was a minimal time commitment, and Dr. Ton-That treated Rebekah once a week for four weeks. “At the end of my treatment, I distinctly remember sitting up and realizing that I hadn’t been realizing how bad I had been feeling. And when I sat up after my first appointment, I felt so good,” she said.

Dr. Ton-That says, “As a physiatrist, my goal is to restore function for patients with acute and chronic pain—back and neck pain, nerve pain, and pain from work-related injuries. If I can help the patient get better, the whole family will be better.” This summer Rebekah is excited to get back to her garden, out with her family, and soon she’ll be able to take the dog on some long walks. She’s thrilled to get back to living— pain free!

It has been months since she stopped her treatment, but she can still tell a difference. “I feel that Dr. Ton-That not only listened to what I had to say, but he knew what questions to ask me for things I didn’t even realize I should tell him,” she said.
