To Have and To Howl Wag Nation taps into Newport’s wedding scene – for dogs When mother-daughter duo Alda Fernandes and Tallia Luvera took over Wag Nation exactly one year ago, they were the fourth owners of the 10-year-old pet specialty boutique. The shop had always sold items for cats and dogs, from toys to treats, but they saw an immediate opportunity to expand the apparel section and break into a fun niche: weddings. Inspired by Tallia’s own wedding, where she incorporated her best furry friend Bogie sporting a bowtie, the pair decided to start sourcing and selling bridal accessories for dogs. Both ladies thought it was a natural fit because

of their location in Newport, one of the country’s top wedding destinations. Today, Wag Nation offers a selection of “blissfully barking nuptial items”, from collars and bandanas to bowties and dresses, most of which are customizable to your wedding colors and pup’s shape and size. There’s a doggie shirt with “Love” written in Swarovski crystals and bandanas resembling a tuxedo. Tallia recalls a man who came in looking to have his Great Dane dressed up as a groomsman – but the most memorable moment? Says Tallia, “We had a request for cat booties!” Wag-Nation.com -Megan Schmit

Happy as a Lark

In Warren, one collaborative is working to bring the community together through the power of music, movement, and tradition – now with a non-traditional twist. East Bay Contra Dance (EBCD) started back in 2013, when founder Elwood Donnelly and his wife, Aubrey Atwater, moved to the East Bay and saw a need for a space where people could come together and dance, and not the kind you need years of experience to enjoy. “Contra dancing is a social dance that one can attend with or without a partner,” Elwood explains. With mixed origins in English and Scottish country dance, as well as French styles of the 17th century, the folk dance can be boiled down to this:

12

The Bay • September 2019

meeting people, making new friends, and having fun. This year, the collaborative introduced Gender-Free Dancing in an effort to include people who may not identify within the constraints of the binary. Rather than the traditional roles of the dance, where gents stand on the left and ladies on the right, dancers are invited to choose whichever side they’d like to dance, as long as they take on the correct choreography of that role. Elwood explains their system of “Larks and Ravens”: if you want the role of the Lark, you will stand on the left, while Ravens stand on the right. The whole dance is pretty simple. Says Elwood, “The dancers form couples, and

the couples form sets of two in long lines starting from the stage and going down the length of the dance hall. Throughout the course of a dance, couples progress up and down these lines, dancing with each other couple in the line.” Newbies need not worry about getting lost in the steps; instructions are called throughout the dance, and sequences are taught before the music even starts. Basically, all you need to know is to how to count, listen, and hold onto someone. East Bay Contra Dance typically holds Gender-Free Dances on the first Friday of each month. To check out their schedule visit Elwood70.Wixsite/EastBayContra. Warren -Ava Callery

Close To Home The Bristol Historical & Preservation Society hosts its first house tour in ten years

The exterior of Mumma House, built in 1994 and designed by Lombard John Pozzi

Twelve homes, five centuries, one day. On September 21, after a ten-year hiatus, the Bristol Historical & Preservation Society (BHPS) brings back a popular tradition that started in the ‘60s: their annual House Tour. “Homes open span 321 years of architecture and history,” say committee co-chairs and board members Dodie Tschirch and Theresa Woodmansee. “The oldest was built in 1698 and the newest in 2001!” The tour is a fundraiser for BHPS, but more than that, it’s a celebration of the town’s rich history. Visitors can walk or hop on and off the private trolley through Bristol’s National Waterfront District. They’ll see examples of Greek Revival, Dutch Colonial Revival, and Federal Style. They’ll find

National Historic Landmarks that “illustrate the heritage of not just Bristol but of the United States.” They’ll discover an estate designed by NYC architect James Renwick, responsible for the Smithsonian in DC and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC. There’s a 19th century stone school and wooden carriage house creatively converted into homes. Even the more contemporary, 21st century residences are noteworthy productions of Bristol’s own restoration architect Lombard John Pozzi. “Each uniquely [offers] a glimpse and a story into Bristol’s past,” BHPS shares. In between stops, Dodie encourages visitors to venture beyond the residential and indulge in what else Bristol has to offer. “With lots of little coffee shops to stop in

during the day or restaurants to relax at afterwards, it becomes a whole day event.” Between the homeowners, sponsors, advertisers, and volunteers, the House Tour 2019 is a community undertaking. As Dodie shares, the planning and implementation process takes over a year. However, Dodie and Theresa cite many favorite parts of the event, from the excitement the morning of as people pick up their tickets, to seeing the animated homeowners sharing their stories with tour-goers. “There is a wonderful sense of community in pulling it all together,” says Dodie. “What a way to show off Bristol!” For more information or to purchase tickets, visit BHPSRI.org/House-Tour-2019 or call 401-2537223.

Reading, Writing, and Arugula? The Edible Schoolyard teaches young students more than just a green thumb

The Bay • September 2019

Edible education for kids connects life lessons to the garden

impact factors like climate, and how to reduce vulnerability to animals and pests (for the most part, Dan practices organic and pesticide-free growing). “One of the fun things is that many of the students who have the opportunity to return from the spring sessions of programs will get to harvest and eat crops they have planted,” he says. “It is a really nice way to connect

those students to how simple it can be to grow your own food and makes it a little more special of a return trip.” And in October, for their efforts to create “positive pathways to the future”, the Edible Schoolyard will be recognized by the Rhode Island Council for Humanities as a recipient of their Innovation in the Humanities Award. Portsmouth -Andrea E. McHugh

“Edible education” was a concept first introduced to California middle schoolers nearly 25 years ago. Restaurateur and food educator Alice Waters theorized that students’ relationship with food, and their community, would strengthen as they learned to grow and eat healthy produce. The practice continues at Green Animals Topiary Garden in Portsmouth (owned by The Preservation Society of Newport County), where an edible schoolyard pilot program was initiated in 2015. It couldn’t have been a more appropriate place. There’s been a vegetable garden on-site for nearly 150 years, part of what was once a private country estate that also included a summer residence, farm outbuildings, and bucolic pasture on seven acres bordering Narragansett Bay. Under the supervision of Chief Horticulturist Dan Christina, the Edible Schoolyard’s mission is to build a curriculum for kids that focuses on environmental sustainability and connecting various subjects to the garden. At its core, the Edible Schoolyard is a teaching garden set amid the oldest and most northern topiary garden in the US (it dates back to 1872). Lessons in the classroom seamlessly link to the outside, where Dan introduces students as young as kindergarten to a wide range of dirt-to-dinner plate produce. “The students that return will be planting all sorts of crops: lettuce, radishes, turnips, beans, cabbage, kale, carrots, and various greens, [plus] some crops from seeds and some from transplants that were started in mid-August,” says Dan. “Some of these are quick crops, ready to harvest in 25 to 35 days. Some will be ready mid-October, and some will produce all the way to December – and beyond, depending on the weather!” Nearly 100 varieties can be found in the schoolyard, where Dan also showcases some of the less commonly grown-at-home vegetables including celeriac, beets, tomatillos, and herbs like lemongrass. In this savory and sustainable environment, students are not only learning about how to seed, grow, and make healthy food choices, but about where these foods come from, their cultural relevance,

HOW DOES THE SMOOTH SKIN SYSTEM WORK? A Smooth Skin System treatment involves combining several "age reversal" technologies. • Waves of energy produced by the system gently vibrate and heat the tissue, reorganizing the skin's scaffolding and stimulating new collagen production. The effect tightens and rejuvenates the skin in the targeted area. • Frequency-Specific Microcurrents are simultaneously transferred through the skin layers, improving muscle tone.

Rhode Island School of Design Museum’s current exhibit, Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance 1850–1970, was five years in the making and features over 600 pieces. The show, which has received rave reviews, was a massive undertaking involving collaboration among numerous individuals and departments with daily communication of who was doing what, when, where, and how. For RISD Museum Exhibition Coordinator Marny Kindness, this is when the magic happens. A self-confessed lover of

organization and her project manager calendar, she thrives on keeping everyone on track with the details. Having worked at the RISD Museum for a number of years in general administration and operations, the Warren resident assumed the position of Exhibition Coordinator in 2008 when the museum’s Chace Gallery opened and there was a bigger need for a designated coordinator for exhibitions, rotations, and permanent collection objects.

I’m probably a little more Type A than I like to admit. I went to art school and I want to be like, ‘I’m breezy, super fun, and artistic,’ but I love control and love for things to be super organized. I keep a lot of lists and use a lot of project management software where I can zoom out and see the big picture of the entire exhibition schedule which can be three to five years out. [Others] come up with the ideas, I make sure they happen. We have 20-30 rotations spaces. In the permanent collection we have over 100,000 pieces. What I enjoy the most is working with our staff. We are a well-oiled machine. Even if curators are fairly new coming from other museums, what allows us to work so well is that we are medium-size college museum unlike an MFA, which is huge and runs almost like a corporation. With museums in general there have always been directors, curators, and installers, but it wasn’t until museums were doing multiple exhibits that they needed a dedicated person to manage it. Large museums have multiple people doing the job. There is a great group of exhibition planners across the northeast, all very detail-oriented people. When I went to my first conference, which was all exhibition managers, I walked into the room and I was like, ‘Yay, these are my organizing people!

What makes it a Rhody Gem? This Audubon location is a natural history museum that just happens to house the state’s largest indoor aquarium. That being said, it’s small size makes it just-right for a quiet afternoon of wandering indoors and learning about local wildlife found in Rhode Island. There are interactive exhibits, a tide pool filled with creatures, and a life-sized model of a North Atlantic Right Whale. There’s even a Nature Shop filled with gifts, toys, and field guides. We’re on the hunt for Rhody Gems! Every neighborhood has that secret, hidden, cool and unusual, or hole-in-the-wall spot that locals love.

AN-DID

ARTWORK Rhody craft beer cans provide a ready canvas for local brewers and graphic designers

By Robert Isenberg The first beer can was sealed and sold in 1935. The originals looked like soup cans, and the art was simple: a few colors, an inviting font, and a company logo, which tended to look like a medieval coat-of-arms. Microbreweries have changed all that. Brewers routinely invent wacky names, often based on personal references or unknowable inside jokes. The beer can becomes a ready canvas for graphic designers, and the artwork can be as colorful and surreal as the imagination permits. When a can is first laid out, the image looks flat, like an unfurled flag. To really appreciate the aesthetic expertise that goes into them, here’s a glimpse at some Rhode Island-based artwork – and the illustrators who dreamed them up.

REVIVAL BREWING COMPANY Beer: Clever Girl Paloma-Style Summer Ale Artist: A.J. Paglia

Background: “Clever Girl is a shoutout to Jurassic Park, one of our favorites, but science tells us now that velociraptors were much more colorful than they were in the film. Sean [Larkin, founder and brewmaster] wanted to do a Revival spin on mezcal paloma cocktail for summer time, and the two ideas ran together to make a great addition to our brew family.”


GREY SAIL BREWERY Beer: Flying Horse Blonde Ale Artist: Kyle Reichman

Background: “The Flying Horse Blonde Ale label was created to mark the 350th anniversary of the town of Westerly. After doing some research we decided to use the carousel as the theme for the can as it’s one of the more notable landmarks of Westerly [Watch Hill], plus it’s one of the oldest in the country. We were able to incorporate a lot of the features of the horse and saddle as well as the detail in the trim that lines the top of the carousel. The town of Westerly provided the 350th graphic that is being used on their marketing material. The beer will be served at multiple events planned to celebrate the anniversary.”

FOOLPROOF BREWING COMPANY Beer: La Ferme Urbaine Farmhouse Ale Artist: Elizabeth Atlas Weisberg Chang

Background: “The concept behind La Ferme Urbaine, which is French for ‘the urban farm,’ incorporates some of my favorite things to draw – nature and architecture. As a city dweller, drawing plants and landscapes is almost an escape from the excitement of urban life. I am constantly seeking out lush green patches of earth to illustrate! The scene for this project playfully incorporates texture, pattern, and color helps the consumer feel enveloped in a rich environment.”


Call us sentimental, but the East Bay really is a special place. We have islands, lighthouses, and inns. We’ve got pebbled beaches, feisty taverns, and 200-year-old churches. In the north, manicured suburbs; in the south, rustic countryside. Our cities are small – East Providence claims fewer than 50,000 souls, and the numbers drop from there – but my goodness, do we make up for it in character. There is so much to admire about our side of the state, and our blessings are as diverse as our people. Here at The Bay, we’ve been gushing about this community for a solid decade – and to honor that milestone, here are 10 reasons to love the East Bay.


THE BIKE PATH Rhode Island is crisscrossed with multi-use trails, but the bestused is the East Bay Bike Path. The blacktop surface is smooth and fast, running all the way from India Point Park to south Bristol. Most state paths are low-key routes for quiet reflection, but not this one. Every warm day, thousands of riders roll over the path, from kids on trikes to race-trainers and bona fide bike commuters. Crossing multiple bridges and connecting five distinct towns, the bike path is like an eco-friendly freeway.


HISTORIC DESTINATIONS Europeans first settled in the East Bay nearly 400 years ago, and it shows: Our cottages, farms, mills, squares, and cemeteries reflect every kind of American architecture from colonial cabins to modern ranch houses. To fully appreciate this evolution, you can tour hallowed homesteads like the Mount Hope or Coggeshall Farms and see how manual tillage was once done. For a taste of vintage grandeur, explore the opulent grounds of Blithewold, Linden Place, and Glen House Manor. Fancy yourself a history buff? Some monuments are little-known even among locals: The Bristol Train of Artillery was first opened in 1776, and the Babcock-Smith House in Warren used to host Benjamin Franklin.

Coggeshall Farm

Roger Williams University Playhouse

ROGER WILLIAMS UNIVERSITY As universities go, RWU is still young – only 63 years – but the school is an academic cornerstone of the East Bay, and it takes that distinction seriously. With 5,000 students from around the world, plus competitive Aquaculture and Cybersecurity programs, RWU is a boon to Rhode Island education. Meanwhile, the Community Partnerships Center is abuzz with local initiatives, helping such diverse organizations as Linden House, the Boys & Girls Club of Fall River, and the Bioreserve Discovery Center. Whether or not you set foot on Bristol’s main campus, RWU influences the community in countless ways.

4. NATURE’S GEMS Nothing gets your heart racing like the whoosh of falcon wings. You can hear this dramatic sound at Raptor Weekend (September 7 & 8), the annual showcase of predatory avians at the Audubon Nature Center & Aquarium. But nature is a yearround experience in the East Bay: You can walk the grassy grounds of Bristol’s Colt State Park, tote binoculars through the 325 protected acres of the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown, and browse the Audubon Center’s indoor exhibits about regional wildlife. Beyond the bike path, our towns are webbed with hiking trails, many of them skirting the water.

5. HOPE & MAIN We’ve always boasted a strong dining scene, especially where seafood is concerned, but the Hope & Main culinary incubator program has profoundly expanded our palates – as well as our dining options. Early successes like Beth Bakes and the Backyard Food Company proved how special this institution is, and its shared commercial kitchen has helped birth supermarket items, food trucks, and whole restaurants. Visitors can drop in for the weekly Schoolyard Market, and organizers are known for giving personal tours at the drop of a hat.

FARMS & VINEYARDS Between Tiverton and Dartmouth, Massachusetts, “FarmCoast” is the nickname for this stretch of southern New England, and the term aptly describes the region’s rural beauty. The East Bay is home to many of the state’s most recognized growers, from Sweet Berry Farm and Newport Vineyards in Middletown to Wishing Stone Farm and Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyard in Little Compton. Many of these estates are also destinations: The Escobar Corn Maze in Portsmouth is an autumnal treat, and Sandywoods Farm in Tiverton doubles as a Center for the Arts.

No small town is complete without a lively Main Street, and the East Bay is full of them. This is deliberate: The East Bay Chamber of Commerce works diligently to foster small businesses, as do the all-volunteer merchant associations, and each year new entrepreneurs open their storefronts. Places like Prica Farina (specialty pasta), Ink Fish Books (cookbook store), and the revamped Bristol Oyster Bar are just a few of the new and restored businesses in the East Bay. Unlike the sprawling suburbs of bigger towns, our best commercial districts are walkable, so you can window-shop, eat a meal, and even grab a late-night cocktail without ever re-parking your car.

CELEBRATIONS

10. COMMUNITY Most Rhode Islanders know that Barrington has the best public schools in the state. This is a point of pride, and it's just one of the many civic achievements the East Bay can claim. Our towns are safe and well policed; from the palatial new Tiverton Public Library to the award-winning wastewater treatment facility in Warren, from the WEBOND women's empowerment group to the many local farmers markets, the East Bay shows a startling commitment to community advancement. Wherever you go, there's a way to find people – and feel like you belong.

Nobody parties like we do. Yes, the East Bay is tranquil and easygoing most of the year, but when we get together to celebrate something – watch out. Bristol’s Fourth of July celebration is, of course, world-renowned, and the relatively new Warren Folk’s Fest attracts music fans from across the state. The Tiverton Arts and Artisan Festival floods the Mill Pond Shops with culturati, and don’t forget Saint Patrick’s Day at Aidan’s Pub in Bristol. Bonus: Whenever the action dies down around here, there’s almost always something cooking in Newport.

Phototgraphy by

Warren is sometimes described as the “Brooklyn of Rhode Island,” but in our opinion, it’s even better. With performances at The Galactic Theatre, local handicrafts on display at Made in Warren, and scores of aspiring artists taking workshops at The Collaborative, this little village is overflowing with creative characters. The summertime Bristol-Warren Art Night is a great excuse to meet creative folks outside their ateliers. And Warren isn’t alone: Art galleries line the Bristol waterfront and congregate at Tiverton Four Corners. Live music and open mics dot the East Bay, and Bold Point Park, that massive new concert venue in East Providence, is hitting its stride. In every town, there’s an arts event worth investigating.

Ship Shape For as long as David Norton can remember, he’s loved sailing. His family would take their Pearson 36 Orion sailboat to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island, and beyond. A staple of the experience was always donning an old school turks head bracelet, also known as a knot bracelet. “The cotton ones that shrink to your wrist, they get funky by the end of summer… but that was the whole point,” David chuckles. However, as an adult, David thought there’s got to be a better – and cleaner way – to wear one’s passion for sailing and summertime. Brainstorming over Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktails in the cockpit of his boat, a concept for marine-grade knotted bracelets was hatched. “Where better to drum up salty creativity than in your favorite harbor, drinking your favorite drink,” says David, who uttered “Lemon & Line” for a company name, and it stuck. Nearly a decade since debuting their version of the classic square knot, the range has expanded to include belts, dog leashes, and more. Bracelets and accessories are constructed from seaworthy materials like recycled plastic, with features like stainless steel hardware that won’t rust, corrode, or fade, making products suited for both land and sea. Products are handcrafted in Newport and available around the state.

Life & Style HOME

by Elyse Major

Welcome Aboard Streamlined style abounds in the Barrington Cape of Lemon & Line’s founders

One step into the Rumstick Village home of Elizabeth and David Norton and it’s evident that this pair loves the ocean. Not because the house is filled with anchor motifs – it’s not – but because the decor is the sort of efficient utility found on a boat. Think: hooks, furniture with storage, benches with flat cushions, and pendant lighting. This design makes perfect sense when you learn that David is as passionate about sailing as Elizabeth is about interior design, and their family business is Lemon & Line, a marine-grade accessories company whose motto is Sail More. Work Less. Elizabeth and David grew up together in Barrington. “We lived in the same neighborhood,

went to the same schools, and ran down the same docks at the Barrington Yacht Club,” she begins. “Our nostalgia and our nearing kindergarten-aged daughter eventually drew us back to town in 2016.” With a checklist of being close to the harbor, the town center, and their former elementary school, it took the Nortons nearly two years to find the right house, which turned out to be an expanded Cape next door to Elizabeth’s childhood home. In addition to its location, the couple was drawn to the home’s high ceilings, natural shingles, finished basement, and big backyard. However, they weren’t fans of some of

Walls are painted watery neutrals and framed by crisp white. Windows are either left bare or covered with roman shades. Natural textures like sea grass and twine appear in most rooms via rugs, baskets, and most strikingly a table base, formerly a cable spool that the couple wrapped in 700 feet of line. “Both Dave and I have a

very similar aesthetic – simple, streamlined, and subtly coastal – which makes it easier to design a house together. We like our living spaces to look thoughtful and cohesive but inviting and cozy at the same time.”

GET RHODY STYLE Display love for living by the water in subtle ways with these takeaways from Elizabeth Norton.

Map Quest The Nortons use a chart of Narragansett Bay as wall art. Framed maps also add a waterside vibe.

Keep it Simple “Although living in the Ocean State gives you the green light to embrace a coastal style, try to keep it subtle and authentic. Don’t go overboard! Kitschy is never okay,” says Elizabeth.

Shop Local “Support your local business, they really depend on it,” says Elizabeth who cites Barrington Books, Vienna Bakery, and Anytime Fitness as favorite spots, noting “We still reminisce about the good old days of Chellel’s, The Boston Store, and Benjamin Franklin.”

423 HOPE STREET, BRISTOL | 401.396.9849 My style is classic with a trend forward edge. Think Jackie O. meets J.Lo – I think I’m trying to make that a thing. My look changes a bit depending on the season. A great pair of jeans is always the best, but in the warmer months I gravitate toward fun, brightly colored dresses. One item that I wear mostly everyday would be a pair of statement earrings. I feel they complete an outfit. My go-to choice is a pair of hoops. Maybe I’m taking the J.Lo thing too far, but I feel they make you instantly cooler. When I dress for television, I wear more form-fitting clothes, which is not my comfort zone, but anything loose or baggy on TV can read as frumpy or make you look like you put on extra pounds. I recently wore a wicked cute jumpsuit, which is adorable in real life, but on camera I looked like a blob. Lesson learned. I can find a piece of clothing I like almost anywhere, but more often than not I am a bargain hunter. I love searching the racks at Wrentham Outlets and TJ Maxx because you can find high-end pieces for lowend prices. I splurge on occasion for classic pieces such as a great blazer or something fabulous. I try to shop locally when I can, as well as to find pieces that are special or know will be unique. Everyday is different at work and I’m constantly meeting new people and learning about places. I love that no matter where you are in Rhode Island, you are never far from the ocean. Being able to sit by the water with a little breeze and relax is my absolute favorite thing to do. I went to Roger Williams and have been obsessed with the state ever since. The dining scene is unparalleled and there are always up and coming shopping areas that I love to explore!

MAKING ARRANGEMENTS Flower farmer Beth Harris show us how to create a bountiful floral display

By Elyse Major

There’s something about a floral centerpiece that elevates even a simple table setting into something special. Today’s versions aren’t the tightly manicured bunches of even a few years ago. Often housed in atypical vessels, modern centerpieces celebrate the wild forms and colors of nature and almost anything goes. Think branch clippings still covered with leaves, berries, and buds; unkempt fragrant herbs; and of course, flowers at varying heights. Assembling one yourself isn’t as difficult as it seems. We asked Beth Harris, owner of Fairest Flowers Farm in North Scituate, for tips on how to create a beautiful and impressive display. Beth grows and sells a stunning variety of flowers, including dahlias with names delightful names like sunkissed, daydreamer, and moonstruck. From her website (FairestFlowersFarm.com) she sells dahlia bulbs, or “tubers,” but offline, drive along Route 116 to Trimtown Road in North Scituate and be instantly smitten with her charming flower cart filled with jars of spectacular seasonal offerings. Bring cash to the roadside attraction and treat yourself to a fresh bouquet. See what’s blooming on Beth’s Instagram at @FairestFlowers

PREP Before starting, you’ll need something at the base of the container to insert stems and secure the arrangement in place. This can be done using floral foam cut to fit and saturated with water. Alternatively, for a more eco-friendly foundation, use a flower frog (those flat disks with upright pins or half spheres with holes); construct a grid affixed toward the base using floral tape; or scrunch a small section of chicken wire.


CREATE 1. Place selected foundation at the bottom of your container. Fill with water.

4. Begin by inserting shorter leafy stems around the inside rim to conceal the top of the container.

2. Gather your flowers and foliage and cut stems at a slant to increase water intake.

5. Next, add medium sized blooms working your way inward, followed by increasingly larger blooms toward the center.

3. Cut leafy greens shortest and work your way up in length to the flowers you want to stand tall.

6. Finish with long sprigs of flowers or branches in an almost random pattern.

TIPS FROM BETH • Add your most beautiful bloom last, and place it where it will shine. I call it the "hello" flower. • Use foliage not so much for filler, but rather, as an interesting texture, color, or to define shape. • Forage and use most anything!

FLOWERS USED Berries, herbs, roses, Shirley poppies, and wildflowers

Sweet and Salty GG’s Pretzels are the perfect snack for any time of day Chocolate-covered pretzels are a whimsical thing of childhood. Thinking about them – the sugar, the different toppings jutting off the top – makes you want to be a kid on a holiday morning again. Made with different types of chocolate, and then rolled in everything from crushed-up peppermint to coconut flakes, these sweet treats can be morphed and melded to fit any taste. George Lefebvre and Gina Ferrara, owners of GG’s Pretzels, have harnessed the versatile power of the salty/sweet creation, and now, they’re in business to share it with Rhode Islanders. Says the couple, “We believe that chocolate-dipped pretzels provide a sweet and salty flavor combination that is loved by many. We feel that it is a way to treat yourself – but without the guilt.” Like many business ventures, the idea for GG’s Pretzels began as a well-loved, home tradition. George remembers that Gina used to make chocolate-dipped pretzels to hand out to family and friends during the holidays. At first, her combinations were simple: a chocolate

one here and a white chocolate one there. But, as time went on, the soon-to-be entrepreneur began coming up with more creative flavors, venturing into the confectionery realms of caramel and seasonal flavors like pumpkin spice. From there, the business took off, and the couple began working with the food incubator Hope & Main to get their endeavor going. Today, the company has over 20 flavors of pretzels. With this many options to choose from, the decision might be hard, but fret not! Gina and George recommend their GG’s D’Lites because they taste “exactly like the Girl Scout Cookie”, and are made with dark chocolate, caramel, and topped with coconut crunch. The company has also begun making soft pretzels to accommodate the heat and humidity when they are out at fairs, brewery events, and farmers markets. Find information about GG’s Pretzels events on their Facebook and Instagram pages. Warren, GGsPretzels.com. -Lauren Vella

Food & Drink EXPERIENCE

Deep Dive A depth of flavors at 15 Point Road Restaurant Located in Island Park, a charming residential community on a peninsula in northeast Portsmouth, 15 Point Road Restaurant overlooks the meeting point of Narragansett Bay and the Sakonnet River. To compete for attention with this scenic backdrop, the food must be epic – and 15 Point Road did not disappoint. Outfitted in nautical chic, the dining room features clean white wood paneling with navy blue accents. Oversized windows cover the far end, giving diners stunning water views that reach over to picturesque Tiverton on the other side of the river. After the sun sets, the hurricane lamp lighting

casts a pleasant glow. The restaurant is dim enough to be festive but has enough light so you can still see your meal. Low music allows for easy conversation. The tables are wide, giving ample room for plates and drinks. While both the indoor dining room and quaint patio were packed on a Saturday night (pro tip: make reservations), the wait staff was friendly and efficient. The welcoming maître d’ made sure everyone felt right at home. Our patient waitress was stuck waiting for us to decide what to order – everything on the menu, mostly locally sourced, sounded divine. 15 Point Road boasts an impressive wine

list. Like their food, beer specials focus on local brews. Spirits lovers will find their creative cocktail concoctions delightful. For starters, we went with the stuffies. The locally harvested clams were piled high with a delicious breadcrumb filling that retained plenty of briny flavor. The Wild Mushroom Ragout, a filo pastry base covered with meaty mushrooms in a brandy demi-glaze, was delightfully decadent. Fittingly, locally caught seafood is a highlight of the 15 Point menu. Our entrees reflected an oceanic delight. The Pan Seared Scallops, fresh from George’s Bank, were

A few years ago, Roger Williams University received an unusual distinction: According to the website BestColleges.com, RWU had one of the best dining halls in the country. If that surprises you, it shouldn’t; Thrillist.com listed RWU’s dining hall as one of the 14 best in the United States, beating out more than 4,000 competitors. And while “Best College Food in Rhode Island” might seem like a humbler title, this last one came from USA Today. “We want to offer them a rich palate of choices,” says Dr. John King, Vice President

of Student Life at RWU. “We want to give them the opportunity to experiment with foods from around the country, locally sourced food, fish they may not have encountered before.” 80 percent of students enroll in some kind of meal plan, even if they’re not required to, but does John eat on campus, too? “Every chance I get,” he says. Much of the credit goes to Bon Appetit, a California-based management company that specializes in college campuses. Bon

Appetit is known for local sourcing and environmental responsibility, as well as sensitivity to individual dietary needs. But RWU is deeply invested in its own food services; the line staff consists of RWU employees, and their head chef is a Bristol native, Jon Cambra, who is deeply knowledgeable about Rhode Island growers. “I’m fortunate that I’m a Rhode Island resident,” says Jon, who trained at the New England Culinary Institute. Jon says he owes much of his attitude and connections to Casey Riley, former chef at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport. “I latched onto his ideals right away. There are three or four farmers that Chef Casey already had in his pocket, if you will. It was just really cool to meet these farmers on a regular basis. I’m saying to myself, ‘This is what I want to do. I believe in what they’re doing.’” RWU has a close relationship with Farm Fresh RI, and the kitchen receives regular deliveries from regional farms through the Market Mobile program. “We can buy beans from Maine, we can buy cheese from Connecticut,” Jon says. “Not everything we do here is local. But as Market Mobile expanded, our relationships expanded.” The menu showcases seasonal favorites and New England delicacies, such as scup, monkfish, and swordfish, as well as locally processed fruits and tomato puree. Potatoes are grown on Lacerda’s Farm in Portsmouth, and all the French fries are hand-cut. The main dining hall is bright and spotless, and signs identify the origins of different ingredients. Jon is humble about their achievements, and he gushes about his RWU kitchen staff. He even appreciates the students. “Our students come to see us more than their professors,” he says. “They’re with us three times a day, if they’re on a full meal plan. Maybe even more – they might come in for a snack in the middle of the day.”

The Bay • September 2019

In Rhode Island, hot wieners are a way of life. Many greasy spoons have them on the menu, but only a few can count them as iconic. Rod’s Grille is one. “The Coney Island sauce is my great grandmother’s recipe,” Meghan Rodrigues shares. Meghan, who runs the diner with her father, is now the fourth generation Rodrigueses to feed the East Bay, which she considers “an honor.” Located on Washington Street just off of Main in Warren, its kitschy signs, black and white tile flooring, and red diner stools are an homage to an era when the diner ignited the American imagination. “Warren is such a small town, everyone knows everyone,” she says. “It’s fun seeing so many generations come through our doors. Even if they move away, when they come to visit family, Rod’s is their first stop.” Meghan began working at Rod’s on weekends and holidays when she was 15 years old. “I started washing dishes, just like everyone else,” she says with a laugh. She studied culinary arts in college, graduating from Southern New Hampshire University. After a pastry internship in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, Meghan returned to Rhode Island

where she worked at Castle Hill Inn in Newport and with Russell Morin Catering. When her aunt retired in 2012, she officially joined the family business. Along with Rod’s famous hot wieners, the diner is known for its chouriço-based hash that’s a nod to the family’s Portuguese heritage. Citing the recent avocado craze, Meghan says she doesn’t feel any pressure to force the diner into the 21st Century. “We don’t chase trends. We focus on quality and consistency – the Coney Island sauce recipe on our hot wieners hasn’t changed since 1955,” she explains. “We offer simple comfort food. That’s what our customers want.” After working at high end establishments, returning to Rod’s was a welcome homecoming. “I love working with my family. Most of our staff has been here so long they are like family. Customers remember me from when I was a toddler. I love knowing that people are happy that there’s another generation that’s going to take care of this place.” “We definitely have that Cheers vibe,” she continues. “If we don’t know your name, we absolutely know your order.” Warren. -Karen Greco

THE TOAST OF THE TOWN The anatomy of the dish that put Sydney on the map

d o l o re c i t l Mu irloom He toes To m a

By Lauren Vella Photography by Nick DelGiudice

Sydney’s avocado toast is the kind of food that makes you do a double take and say, “I want that!” It’s ‘grammable, it’s gourmet, it’s a textural symphony. Seriously, one bite and you’ll get everything you wanted out of a dish in a mouthful – the tang of the tomato and feta, the silky-smooth creaminess of mashed avocado, and the loud crunch of the crusty bread that holds it all together. It’s one thing to enjoy this creation, it’s another to know the secret behind Sydney’s famous open-faced sandwich. We got some insider info on what actually makes this avocado toast so delectable, and we’re here to share it with you. Locations in Providence, Garden City, and Portsmouth. SydneyPvd.com
