Experts in MonaLisa Touch News Update: The MonaLisa Touch has now been FDA approved in the U.S. for over 2 years and at Arizona Women’s Care more than 800 procedures have brought amazing results to women across the Southwest region. This amazing NON HORMONAL treatment for vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, frequent bladder or vaginal infections and other symptoms that result from a lack of estrogen has revolutionized our success in treating these disheartening issues. In a recent Stanford University study, reductions in dryness and painful intercourse were especially marked, dropping an average of 75% and 66% respectively. As Lindsay (age 56) states, “I was skeptical, but I needed to try something. After the 3 treatments, intercourse was so much better I could not believe it. I actually asked my husband if we could do it again, and he was shocked! It has made such a difference in our relationship.” The MonaLisa Touch uses fractional CO2 laser therapy

to regenerate collagen and rid the vaginal mucosa of the dry atrophic cells. Three simple treatments in the office 6 weeks apart have shown incredible improvements in vaginal atrophy. These treatments take about 5 minutes and are virtually painfree, no anesthesia is needed. As women caring for women, our expertise and customer service are unsurpassed in the valley. Our staff of all-female physicians were the 1st board certified OB/GYNS in the state of Arizona to perform the MonaLisa Touch procedure. We welcome you to any of our open house seminars to learn more about the MonaLisa Touch! You will have the opportunity to meet with the doctors and talk with the patients who have had this life changing procedure. One last testimonial from Rhonda (age 61) sums up why we do what we do, “Thank you Arizona Women’s Care for offering me the MonaLisa Touch! It is an amazing treatment. I am 100% back to feeling like I did 20 years ago!”

MICHAEL FITZMAURICE, MD Founder of the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute Double Board Certified Hand Surgeon

Between regularly sending emails and text messages on your smart phone, spending hours gripping the steering wheel in rush hour traffic, and playing hours of tennis on the weekends, your hands are locked in an endless cycle of repetitive motions that typically go unnoticed until pain sets in. Soreness at the base of the thumb, pain, or a clicking, snapping, or locking sensation while the thumb is in motion could be a sign of trigger thumb. Trigger thumb can result from tendon inflammation due to repetitive gripping motions, or from an underlying medical condition like diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Michael Fitzmaurice has pioneered a minimally invasive procedure to treat trigger thumb in Arizona without the need for complicated and invasive traditional surgery. The EndoTech® Endoscopic Trigger Thumb Release system was designed by Dr. Fitzmaurice and is available exclusively at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute. EndoTech® uses a small incision and an endoscopic technique to fix the injured tendon in an outpatient procedure. With EndoTech® , you’ll be back in motion, firm grip in tact, in no time!

S

pring is in the air! Can you feel it? One of the more popular things to do this season is spring cleaning – out with the old and in with the new. Our cover feature (page 33) is doing just that, taking the skills from her past careers she has built up over the years to organize and create something new and exciting for herself. Chicago native Chrissy May is a jack of all trades – ice skater, fitness competitor and trainer, real estate agent, author, editor, Hollywood host, actress and now she’s using all of those experiences for her next venture, Spotlight on Arizona. We got the inside scoop on the recently launched website and soon-to-be TV show, and her journey to this pivotal moment in her career. Speaking of pivotal … we’re also covering all of the top trends this season, from pastel nail polishes (page 64) and floral fashions (page 62) to stylish sunglasses (page 63) and pops of spring shades for your home (page 60). As the weather warms up, the season brings a refresh in another way – your food and drink. We’re highlighting a creole lemonade (page 57) that’s both spicy and sweet, as well as salads (page 80) that will leave those boring greens with less-than-stellar toppings in the dust. In addition, with summer looming, many people find spring the perfect time to ramp up their workout routines. Not sure which class or fitness discipline to enroll in? We talked with six different fitness professionals (page 37) about why they chose their fields, what to eat before and after a workout and what they do to motivate their students. Are you ready to sweat (and were not talking about on the lawn at a spring training game.)? Best, Gabby Richman Editor-in-Chief gabby@richmanmediagroup.com Find our magazine on Facebook!

H AND SURGEON MICH AEL FITZMAUR ICE, MD Founder of the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute Double Board CertiďŹ ed Hand Surgeon

Dr. Fitzmaurice has performed thousands of minimally-invasive, endoscopic hand procedures in Arizona over the last decade.

You never appreciate how important the thumb is to regular activities until a tendon injury compromises movement. Repetitive motion from everyday activities such as typing on a laptop or playing a favorite sport, can lead to swelling and inflammation of the tendon sheath, the condition known as De Quervains Tendinitis. This causes pain and limited mobility of the wrist and thumb.

Developed by board certified hand surgeon Michael Fitzmaurice, M.D., and available exclusively at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in Phoenix, Endotech uses a small incision and endoscope to repair the injured tendons. Most patients experience immediate relief and improved movement immediately following the procedure, and can return to work in as little as one week!

De Quervains Tendinitis can now be treated by the state of the art, minimally invasive EndoTech Endoscopic De Quervains Release System.

THE SONG IN HER HEART Sima Verzino begins a new chapter in her storied career BY ALISON BAILIN BATZ PHOTOS BY MARK MORGAN

continued…

Sima Verzino has often been referred to as a “figlia d’arte.” “An old Italian expression, figlia d’arte roughly translates to ‘daughter of art’ in English and is used to describe children who inherit a talent for the arts from their parents,” Verzino says. Growing up in New York, Verzino was immersed in music at a young age thanks to her father, who was not only a classically trained vocalist and saxophonist, but had his own orchestra, which played all of the top clubs, music halls and social events in New York and Washington, D.C. for decades. MARCH 2017 |

up close “Dancing, singing and even playing instruments always felt natural to me,” says Verzino, who began classical dance lessons at age three, then piano lessons at age six. Just a year into her piano lessons, Verzino was invited to perform in a series of well-known New York showcases for child prodigies, and by her early teens, she auditioned for the famous School of Performing Arts – one of the inspirations for the film FAME – getting in on her first try. “I majored in drama and minored in dance – but by then I was falling in love with singing,” explains Verzino, who focused her down time on vocal lessons. “I performed as often as I could, especially with the big society orchestras in New York City. From there, I took positions on international cruise ships to sing, which led me to Europe – and changed my life forever,” Verzino recalls. In 1987, Verzino was signed to a contract to perform in Rome at Jackie O, a world-famous club in the La Dolce Vita tradition, popular with the Versace-, Armani- and Gucci-clad international jet setters. A week into her contract, media reviews poured in – all exceptionally positive. “I was honored to be earning such praise so quickly from the European media. So much so, in fact, I decided to make Rome my home,” Verzino says. She was then signed to an independent European label within just six months of her life-changing decision. “I would ultimately produce more than a dozen singles, many of which made Europe’s Hit Parade, and my biggest hit – Sexitivity – even made the Billboard Chart in America in 1991,” she says. Verzino worked steadily in Rome for 10 years, falling in love with more than just music along the way. “On New Year’s Eve 1993, I was invited to a private dinner hosted by chef Marcellino Verzino – a heralded Italian chef then at the helm of Erasmus of Rotterdam in Rome’s historic center,” Verzino says. “At the stroke of midnight, we kissed!”

From that moment on, the couple would remain together in Rome until 1996, when they decided to move back to New York City and get married. “Within weeks of coming to America, the word about Marcellino got out. Before we knew it, together we opened a series of successful restaurants, earning the coveted Award of Excellence from the New York Times along the way,” Verzino says. “The work caused me to take a break from my singing, but what we created together was worth it.” And while happy, a chance visit to the Valley in 2002 changed everything yet again. “We came out here to see friends – and fell in love with Phoenix,” Verzino recalls. “Within three months of visiting, we not only moved to the Uptown area, but opened Marcellino Ristorante in central Phoenix, receiving a five-star rating from Arizona’s then-top food critic, Howard Seftel, just weeks into service.” Marcellino Ristorante has remained among the highest-rated restaurants in Arizona to this day. Eventually the couple

moved the restaurant to a bigger space in Scottsdale in 2010, which Marcellino himself designed. Sima, of course, was his muse. “The restaurant business has been so good to us – but over the past few years, I yearned to get back to the stage,” Verzino says. “So, I began to contact local musicians that I admired with the idea of putting together an ensemble to perform the jazzy, funky R&B rhythms that made up my signature sound.” Today, Verzino is joined by prominent artists in musical conductor Mark DeCozio, who also owns the Brick Road recording studio; bassist Felix Sainz, who has opened for B.B. King and Gladys Knight, among others; and drummer Lady Sheila Earley, who’s worked with Clay Aiken and The New York Pops orchestra, in her All Star Trio. They perform weekly at Marcellino Ristorante (www.marcellinoristorante.com) and are working on adding additional members to play bigger venues in the area that brought them to the Valley by the year’s end.

THE SINGING TV GUY

Mike Chamberlin goes from television anchor to rock ‘n’ roll musician. BY BROOKE GOLDSTEIN PHOTO BY MARK MORGAN

A

t an early age, Mike Chamberlin was influenced by his musical parents to start singing, but his career ended up taking a different route – broadcast journalism. After 40 years of anchoring at different stations across the country, covering Super Bowls, World Series’ and NBA Championships, acquiring 13 Emmy Awards along the way, Chamberlin decided to retire and pursue his first love of music. He started singing at senior centers, mobile home parks and RV resorts to take any opportunity he could get. “I simply traded one microphone for another,” he says. “Being comfortable in front of a mic is very important, and I did just that my entire career, so it carried over naturally into singing.” Just over six years later, Chamberlin has played over 2,000 concerts. “Now in retirement, I’m doing what I should have my whole life … music,” he explains. “To see the smiles of my audiences is heartwarming, to hear them sing with me is uplifting.” On March 15, Chamberlin is partnering with The Phoenix Film Festival and The Listening Room to present Music From The Movies, a special concert featuring performances of songs that won Academy Awards.

Etc.

What is your favorite part of performing? The reaction from the audience. No two concerts are ever the same; no two audiences are ever the same. Biggest musical inspirations: Songs from Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin are still alive today, 75 years after they were hits. But I was also raised during the ‘60s and admire The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who. What do you hope people get out of your music? I hope when my concert ends, the audience has been informed and entertained. I’m as much a storyteller as I am a musician. UPTOWN |

TRAILBLAZING TOUCHDOWNS Kelly Vaughn dukes it out in the name of philanthropy BY BRITTANY MARONEY PHOTO BY MARK MORGAN

K

elly Vaughn is the managing editor and books editor of Arizona Highways magazine, an adjunct faculty member at Arizona State University, and she also knows her way around a football field. After watching her friend lose her mother to dementia, Vaughn got involved with Blonde vs. Brunettes, an annual all-female flag football match where two teams of women divide into a classic hair color rivalry and compete. The ultimate prize? To inspire fundraising, awareness and action in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. When Vaughn (co-chair of this year’s fifth annual event), her fellow brunette teammates, and their blonde opponents hit the grid iron it’s clear that they’re no powder puffs – especially when it comes to raising money for Alzheimer’s research. “There’s so much to love about the match, but the most beautiful thing to me is that it creates a sense of camaraderie among women — all in the spirit of philanthropy,” Vaughn says. The fundraiser, apart of the larger foundation Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ, raised over $68,000 at last year’s game with hopes to exceed the 2016 donations at this year’s April match up.

Etc.

Who are the reigning champs and is the competition fierce? Heck yes! Team Blonde is 4-0 against the Brunettes. Team Brunette is hoping for a big victory this year. Favorite place to catch a beer after the big game: Well this year we will either be drowning our sorrows or celebrating a win at Majerle's downtown. What are the event details for this year’s game? The fifth annual Blondes vs. Brunettes game will take place at Phoenix College on Saturday, April 29, at 7 p.m. For information or to purchase tickets, readers can visit www.bvbphoenix.org. UPTOWN |

O

ne could say that Mary Zarob’s fashion career was written in the stars. “From a young age, I developed a habit of keeping a sketchpad with me to create my own designs anytime I was inspired,” she recalls. Her insatiable appetite ultimately found her at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York, where she graduated with a degree in menswear. While living in the city, Zarob regularly attended New York Fashion Week and worked for Macy’s and Calvin Klein Jeans, often encountering her own designs on the streets and subways. These days, Zarob keeps busy with her personal styling business Q. Contrary, overseeing personal fittings and educating clients on the importance of detail. “It doesn’t matter if you’re presenting a million-dollar project or taking a date out to dinner,” she asserts. “Your outfit needs to fit and be accessorized correctly.” As for her own style? A peek into Zarob’s closet reveals a collection of G-Star RAW denim, edgy AllSaints tops and several nostalgias, including the first suit she made at FIT and the T-shirt she wore during her four marathons.

The last time you were star-struck: I met [designer] Carolina Herrera – we rode the elevator together. She is so beautiful and petite. Of what accomplishment are you most proud? Launching my personal styling business, which has grown to serve more than 250 clients. It’s been a blast helping professionals from around the Valley to look their best, whether for the big meeting, pitch or interview. [I also love] helping couples create beautiful wedding memories by outfitting grooms and groomsmen in stylish looks. Favorite way to break a sweat: Sand volleyball. There are some great sand courts around Phoenix and Scottsdale where I’ll go for weekend or evening games. The best meal you’ve ever eaten? The Burger Joint at the Parker Meridien Hotel in NYC.


THE SEVEN SINS OF A MECHANIC SHOP How do you know if your car doctor is a bad apple? Shahe Koulloukian of Mazvo Auto Care Center gives us the scoop.

Even if your vehicle isn’t equipped with Bluetooth, Wifi, and other high-tech accessories, it’s the biggest, most expensive gadget you own. And unless you trade your car in as often as your cell phone, keeping that ride in peak operating condition is vital to keeping repair costs down over its lifespan. We’re not saying that every repair will be expensive, but some unexpected repairs could potentially turn a $180.00 oil leak into a $1,800.00 leak in your checking account. To make sure you’re spending only the necessary amounts on maintenance and repairs, you’ve got to find a shop that won’t rip you off. Unfortunately, that isn’t always simple; from shade-tree mechanics to nationally-branded repair centers and dealerships, many shops can be downright unethical when it comes to billing. So how can you know whether you’re dealing with a business that’s honest (versus honestly rotten)? We asked Shahe Koulloukian, owner of Mazvo Auto Care Center, to give us the lowdown. “Great service boils down to trust; there’s a lot to be said for knowing you’re not being taken advantage of,” Shahe says. “Even if you’re mechanically disinclined, you should always be able to rest assured that the problem will be fixed, and fairly – not just a scenario where you fork over $1000, a guy turns the thingamajig and tweaks the flippidy-wazoo, and your engine still makes that funny noise.” If you’re not sure whether you’re being taken advantage of, Shahe suggests watching out for the following warning signs. #1: Failure to listen. You drive your car every day, and are the best source of information when it comes to describing a problem – so it’s important that the repair shop listens to what you’re saying! #2: Not being available. Sure, the shop is busy, but so are you. If a repair shop can’t give you the courtesy of promptly returning your call (or asking if they can call you back), it’s a sign that they’re either unorganized, or lacking the manpower to handle the workload. #3: Underperforming. As a customer, you want three things: speed,

quality, and trustworthiness. A good repair shop should at least provide two out of three. #4: Assuming you know the lingo. The thingamajig and the muffler zipadeedoo needs replaced, but what does that mean? Breaking it down to explain how the failed part works is much more valuable than giving me names that sound straight out of Star Wars. #5: Getting angry or impatient. Absolutely no excuse for that! You’re there for a reason; anger and impatience have no room in the conversation, even if you can’t understand what he is trying to sell you. When you ask questions, the truth always comes out. #6: Lying. It may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised how many businesses overpromise and underdeliver. There is nothing worse than being told your car will be done today, only to find out that he meant “today next week.” #7: Lack of manners. One of the worst things a repair shop can do is disrespect their clients because of gender, age, lack of auto repair knowledge … or anything else, for that matter! You deserve a respectful explanation of services that informs you not just for the problem at hand, but for the future. Auto maintenance and repair may not be your favorite thing, but it’s much more tolerable when you’re confident that you’re using a reliable, trustworthy mechanic – which is why Shahe and the Mazvo Auto Care team are devoted to empowering their customers. It’s about solving, not selling. “We’ve spent multiple sessions investigating some annoying problem only to figure it out, recommend a thirty-dollar fix, and teach the customer how to do it themselves next time,” says Shahe. “For my customers, that kind of integrity is priceless.”

DRESSING FOR SUCCESS

T

ravis Shumake is known for two things: leadership and style. In college, he led Northern Arizona University as the student body president and graced the cover of The Advocate magazine. The central Phoenix native is passionate about presentation and community, and sees style as one of his most valuable avenues of self-expression. “I love all things Phoenix branded,” says Shumake, a self-described “allAmerican, Eddie Bauer mountain man meets urban downtown business man” whose wardrobe is a healthy mix of simple yet polished button-downs and State Forty Eight T-shirts. “An oxford is the most essential and versatile article of clothing a man should have in his closet,” he says. Earlier this year, Shumake was appointed as the director of development of one∙n∙ten, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting LGBTQ youth. As a community leader, Shumake sees his style as a representation of the causes and values he supports. “Finding a balance (of work and personal style) is easy when your job is an extension of your personal passion,” Shumake explains. “Authenticity in my appearance is the only way to cultivate and maintain last relationships.”

Do you have any celebrity fashion icons, past or present? I often find myself googling “JFK style” when I have a party or event that I am unsure of what to wear. What is your favorite pair of shoes? My Cole Haan camel leather wingtips. I am on my seventh pair. What is a must-have accessory for fashionable men? An iconic time piece. It doesn’t have to be expensive. My best conversation starter is an old watch my dad won at a drag race. Where are your favorite spots to see stylish Valley residents? If I am downtown, you’ll find me at Fez; midtown, having a martini at Durant’s; and when I am home in Uptown, I’ll be at Feeney’s or sneaking a 2-4-1 at Charlie’s [Phoenix]. UPTOWN |

After decades in the forefront, Chrissy May is ready to shine the spotlight on Arizona

UPTOWN |

32

| MARCH 2017


C

hrissy May was born on a warm day in May (of course) in a downtown Chicago hospital … and then again on a sweltering day in August just down the street. “I was born to a 20-year-old girl, who tried her best to care for me on her own, but within eight weeks, knew it was too much,” says May, whose birth mother took her to the Children’s Home and Aid Society that summer to give her up for adoption. May’s birth mother’s only request: the baby be given to a Catholic family. “In the late ‘70s, early ‘80s Catholics made up 43 percent of the total population of Cook and Lake Counties, and my parents were 22nd on the adoption waiting list,” May elaborates. “They were told to prepare to wait at least two years for a baby.” But, by some miracle, the May family turned out to be the first Catholic family on the waiting list. So, in August, Chrissy May was named and taken home to her forever family, which included an older brother, and – eventually– a younger sister, neither adopted. “Even as a kid, I had a mess of blonde hair and big, blue eyes – a stark contrast to my entire dark-haired family,” May says. “I stuck out even then.” MARCH 2017 |

May’s family was extremely closeknit, even as a young child May was told by her parents that she was “special” and “chosen,” which eventually led her to understand she was adopted – and helped her accept it from the onset. “I even joked to my mom that since she got spared labor pains that perhaps I would save the pain for later – like my teen years,” recalls May, who claims she was certainly a trying teenager at times but focused at the same time. “I participated in a lot of sports growing up and worked hard at everything I put my mind to.” On the top of that list – figure skating. After seeing the 1988 Olympic Figure Skating Championships, which featured icons Katarina Witt, Brian Boitano and Viktor Petrenko, May and her friend walked to the local frozen-over pond and tried to teach themselves figure skating moves and jumps. “Turns out, it was a bit harder than the Olympians make it seem, so I ran back to my house and pleaded with my parents to sign me up for lessons,” May says. She would spend the next 10 years training and competing in figure skating, eventually traveling to local ice shows and competitions all over the Midwest. “The most memorable, comical skating experience actually happened during a big ice show – one where Olympic gold medalist Viktor Petrenko himself would be headlining,” explains May, whose excited parents shouted for her to “break a leg” as she rushed off to rehearsal. As luck would have it, Petrenko decided he would hand-pick some of the performers and give them some one-onone coaching on jumps and technique before the show. “When he pointed to me, I nearly fainted,” May remembers. “I got a little overzealous in my first jump and landed hard. I was brought to the hospital, learning that I literally broke my leg as my parents said I should.” Though she would compete a bit longer, by age 22 May was eager to strike out on her own beyond the rink – and beyond Chicago. Interested in the health and fitness field, May visited Arizona in 1999 to check out Southwest Institute on a friend’s recommendation, falling in love with more than just the school, but with

the Valley of the Sun, too. Within months, May moved to Arizona and enrolled in a series of holistic health, nutrition and massage therapy programs, excelling immediately. “But I did miss the rush of training toward and competing in something. Enter Fitness America, which hosts fitness competitions worldwide,” says May, who discovered the organization while watching ESPN late one night. By 2000, she began training for her first competition. Soon after, she started winning them. In 2002, she was crowned the Fitness America Regional Champion and eventually earn a spot in the ESPN-led National Championships, finishing in the top 15 out of 145 competitors. “Fitness America was a gamechanger,” she says. “It became a springboard to landing an agent and being asked to model and write for fitness and mainstream magazines, including everything from Oxygen to Health & Fitness to being the cover model on (X)-Fitness,” May would also go on to serve as the model for a major GNC ad campaign for a year. Around the same time of her fitness success, May launched her first business: C May Performance. Her focus was working with women (and some men) beyond just diet tips and training, but to also help them fight through the struggles and fears in their lives that were causing their health issues, from obesity to anorexia and everything in between. “I spent two straight years dividing my time between Phoenix and L.A., working 10 days in Phoenix then auditioning, networking and taking acting classes where I could in L.A. the next 10 days,” May recalls. The time spent in L.A. was fruitful. Her modeling and acting classes led her to the opportunity to write for some media outlets as well as some bit parts on TV shows, including Las Vegas with Josh Duhamel and 7th Heaven, as well as a small role in the 2005 Bewitched movie starring Will Ferrell. “I also took on hosting opportunities when I could, including red carpet interview duties for Fred Claus, a 2007 Vince Vaughn film with Elizabeth Banks, Paul Giamatti and Kevin Spacey,” May says.

She also interviewed several then-fairly unknown actors while she was working independent film festival events, most notably Bijou Phillips and Jesse Eisenberg. But, while Hollywood and L.A. were certainly fun, the travel was taking its toll. And May missed being in Arizona full time. “In 2007, I came home to my business, and developed an interest in real estate,” May says. She had planned to get her real estate license, but then the recession hit, so she put that goal on hold for a few years, eventually earning it in 2011 and launching Christine May Luxury Real Estate. Her real estate business thrived while working with investors, which didn’t go unnoticed. A local magazine, who knew of her colorful past, came calling with a profile opportunity. “I was blown away to learn I was offered something even better – their editor position,” May says. Her eventual goal was to buy the magazine and expand it into an online show. “But, alas, the publisher changed his mind on selling it, so my vision was put on hold.” Until now. While still working full-time in real estate, May recently launched Spotlight on Arizona, an interactive platform – and eventual half-hour broadcast show – focused on shining a light on the restaurants, events, entrepreneurs, business leaders and destinations that make Arizona so unique. “I love celebrating the success of others. We need more people lifting each other up then bringing down,” May exclaims. She also is on the home stretch of completing her first book, titled The Happy, Healthy Entrepreneur, which offers inspiration and practical advice, drawing from her own experiences. In the final stages of editing, it will hit local bookstores and be sold on Amazon by early summer. “The show and my book are for those in search of positive, fun content,” May says. May is honoring her passion, moving full steam ahead to make her dreams come true. For more information, visit www.spotlightonarizona.com.

Motivation, wisdom and best practices for six types of workouts, straight from the pros

A

s the summer season looms before us – and with it, swimwear, shorts and sleeveless everything – there’s no better time to hit the gym. In honor of March being National Nutrition Month, we talked with six experts across various fitness disciplines to get a glimpse into their individual workout worlds, how they inspire others, and why they are each firm believers in their fields.

Yoga Years teaching: 3+

What are the top three songs on your class’ playlist? Top three songs? Too difficult to narrow down but top three artists I can do. My go-to artists are Glass Animals, Robin Schulz and have to throw Bob Marley in there too … I could go on and on.

Jennifer Bouche

Manager and yoga instructor at ESenEM Yoga, Scottsdale

How should people fuel up before or after one of your workouts? Hydration is key, especially for hot yoga. You sweat a lot, and it’s good to hydrate and rehydrate with electrolyte drinks. I drink water all day long, but coconut water is my go-to pre- and post-class drink. How do you motivate your class? A great playlist with upbeat music helps people get in the zone. I consistently remind students to focus on their breath; that’s always the top priority. I always notice extra effort when I mention the benefits of what we’re currently doing too. What made you choose yoga? Ever since I was a kid, I ate healthy thanks to my mom and was active thanks to my dad. After my first hot yoga class in high school, I knew I had found something great. I was hooked on the way I felt after class – calm and relaxed yet empowered! People always say if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life, and I feel so blessed to be doing what I love. What can people expect when they come to your class? A party. I’m the host and the DJ; you’re the guest and we’re going to sweat, move and jam out together. I like fun, upbeat music when the class gets difficult, but we always warm up and cool down nice and slow. It’s going to be hot and humid, but after everyone’s first class, they keep coming back for more! Any fitness tips you can share? Know your limits and be mindful with your movements to avoid injury. Do what feels good for you, especially in yoga. Each day is different so never be too hard on yourself. If you had a great class one day and the next wasn’t so great, it’s all good. Just breathe deep, flow slow and enjoy the process.

Cycling Years teaching: 10+

What are the top three songs on your class’ playlist? Missy Elliott, I’m Better; Major Lazer, Sweat; Prince, FunknRoll.

Holly Miller

Master trainer at CycleBar, McCormick Ranch

How should people fuel up after one of your workouts? I recommend a good meal with some lean protein and healthy carbs. If whole food is not an option, a protein shake will work. I am definitely an advocate of eating real food over shakes or meal replacements. How do you motivate your class? I try to utilize as many elements in my class as possible to connect with each individual. Some may be motivated by the music, some may be motivated by my words, some may be motivated by seeing me push on the bike. What made you choose cycling? I love the connection of music, mind, body and bike. I love that you can have a room full of people from all different walks of life and all different fitness levels come together as a group and get not only a great workout, but find a connection to something greater than themselves. What can people expect when they come into your class? Great music, high energy, lots of cues for good form, plenty of encouragement, some inspiring messages, and to walk out feeling better than when they walked in. What’s your favorite workout clothing brand? I love the quality of lululemon as well as the social commitment of the brand; I’ve been their ambassador for two years. I also love Goldsheep because they have so many fun prints! I wear their Champagne leggings every Sunday for my brunch ride – we serve fruit and mimosas after class with the intention of getting the riders to know one another better. Any fitness tips you can share? Finding a friend (or friends) to keep you accountable for your health/fitness goals. It’s way more fun to workout with other people, and I can guarantee you’ll work harder! “Stronger together” is my motto!

HIIT Years teaching: 2

What are the top three songs on your class’ playlist? Madonna vs. David Guetta, Revolver; Fifth Harmony, Work From Home; Anna Lunoe, Radioactive. I am a BIG fan of electropop/EDM music during a workout.

Jordan Lindholm

Coach at Orangetheory Fitness, Downtown Phoenix

How should people fuel up before one of your workouts? Consume a slow-digesting carbohydrate to give you sustainable fuel throughout your workout. For example, oatmeal and whole grain toast with peanut butter. How do you motivate your class? I love to give participants a positive quote to think about during their workout. One of my favorite quotes is “the body achieves what the mind believes.” What made you choose highintensity interval training? I was always a part of athletics, including volleyball, gymnastics, track and field, dance, swimming and bodybuilding. In December 2015, I became a member of Orangetheory Fitness Downtown Phoenix. After my first class, I was hooked! I left my job with the Department of Child Safety to pursue my dream of working in the fitness industry. I started off in sales and transitioned into coaching. What can people expect when they come to your class? A warm welcome, to feel motivated throughout the entire class, and enjoy an upbeat, rockin’ playlist that will keep you energized throughout the class. What’s your favorite workout clothing brand? Forever 21. Their clothing is not only well-made but fashionable too. I feel that cute and affordable workout clothes can give anyone a little boost in their step and make them feel good about themselves during their workouts. Any fitness tips you can share? One of my favorite fitness tips is to remember to drink water. It is recommended to drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day.

Pilates Years teaching: 7

What are the top three songs on your class’ playlist? Anything by Pitbull, Flo Rida and Michael Jackson always make the cut.

Adam Maielua

Lead instructor at The Body Lab, Arcadia and North Scottsdale

How should people fuel up before one of your workouts? Eat light – fruit and maybe some protein powder. You need to be hydrated hours before the session. How do you motivate your class? I constantly remind them why they walked in the door. Whatever it is they came to change, they need to own it now. What made you choose Pilates? It’s always challenging yet approachable for most and offers longevity over other forms of fitness as we age. What can people expect when they come to your class? I will challenge you to learn your own body, and I will push you to explore your limits. I will keep you safe, but you’re here to accomplish something. It’s not about what you can do; it’s about how hard you try. What’s your favorite workout clothing brand? Lululemon! I was a two-time brand ambassador so I’m biased for life. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Focus on effort, not results. If you’re not having fun, you’re trying too hard. Any fitness tips you can share? Keep learning. Try different trainers and exercise at different times. Complacency can be just as bad as no activity.

What are the top three songs on your training playlist? Ice Cube, It Was A Good Day; 2Pac, California Love; Jay-Z, Dirt Off Your Shoulder.

Jeremy Scott

Personal trainer and CEO at Jeremy Scott Fitness, North Scottsdale

How should people fuel up before or after one of your workouts? Pre-Workout: I prefer them come on nothing other than water and coffee/tea if they need caffeine. Post-Workout: 100 percent real food such as protein and veggies. How do you motivate others? By being the example of healthy living. I strive to set the bar high by how I eat, train and live my life 24/7/365. I don’t believe in teaching theory; I am a true practitioner of fitness and healthy living. What made you choose personal training? Fitness saved my life. In all reality if I didn’t change the habits I had as a younger man, I wouldn’t be here today. It was a gift to me, and I work every day to give that gift back to those I serve. What can people expect when they come into your training session? A safe, fun, comfortable atmosphere where you can be yourself and work to your full potential. Expect to be surrounded by a positive, supportive community of people who have the same common goal – to become healthy, move better, feel better and look better through hard work and consistent effort. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Comparison is the thieve of joy; never compare how you look to others you see in magazines, on TV or in the gym – we are all dealt a different genetic card and our own personal bests will differ. Just focus on being the best version of you! Any fitness secrets you can share? The real secret is that there isn’t one. There is no magic diet or training program that is going to get you results for life. Understand the only way to achieve lifelong results is by making a lifestyle change and sticking to it forever.

Barre Years teaching: 5

What are the top three songs on your class’ playlist? Deorro, Bailar; Dillon Francis, Anywhere; Adrian Lux, Alive.

Abby Watts

Master teacher trainer at Pure Barre, Scottsdale and Phoenix locations

How should people fuel up before or after one of your workouts? I personally love Quest bars. Ninety-nine percent of the time, you can find a halfeaten cookie dough bar in my purse. How do you motivate your class? I use motivational cues that remind clients how strong they are. My favorites are telling them that they can do anything for 20 seconds or that they are stronger than they think. I know when I hear those in class it makes me dig deeper, so I try to do the same for my clients. What made you choose barre? I have a dance background so after I stopped dancing and tried Pure Barre, it felt like a great fit. There’s no dance involved, but it was a natural fit since there are some positions reminiscent of ballet. What can people expect when they come to your class? To sweat! The most common misconception is that it’s an easy workout because it’s associated with a ballet barre. That is most certainly not the case. We perform small movements but the burn is BIG. What’s your favorite workout clothing brand? I’ve recently been into Goldsheep. I love a plain black legging, but Goldsheep’s outrageous patterns are so fun. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Abs are made in the kitchen. As much as you work out, it all comes back to your diet.

A thirsty Saint Bernard took a drink of water to cool off at the annual Doggie Street Festival, where furry friends united to rejoice in all things cats and dogs. The adopt-a-thon and pet party, dedicated to increasing adoption and celebrating our companion animals, had over 35 rescue groups in attendance and more than 200 dogs seeking a new forever home. Guests (on both two and four legs) enjoyed music, yummy eats, vet tips, animal-focused speakers, pet products, pet services, and a kids’ art area.

Vietnamese-influenced Visuals

Last month, Phoenix Art Museum introduced The Propeller Group, an exhibition dedicated to the work of an international art collective based in Vietnam, whose innovative work blurs the boundaries between fine art and media production. Formed by Matt Lucero, Tuan Andrew Nguyen and Phunam, Propeller Group functions as both an art collective and production company, producing cross-disciplinary art production with a focus on global subjects with which they work. The group members utilize their backgrounds in visual art, film and video, as well as an interest in street culture. This exhibition presents a number of multipart projects developed in the past five years, including videos, sculptures, installations and more, and is one of only a few exhibitions currently scheduled in the United States. www.phxart.org/thepropellergroup.

Looking Good

The Market Restuarant + Bar by Jennifer's has a new look! The restaurant’s appearance has been changed to match its style of food – local, organic twists on American classics. The bar is now separated with seating options and full bar selections. The fresh dining area offers soft seating, including a large booth along the back wall, as well as new individual seating. The large communal table has been replaced with a long high top. The outdoor seating still exists and has been revamped with a new decorative style. www.themarketphx.com.

Funky Fresh

Beautifully in Bloom

Keep Phoenix Beautiful, who recently closed their 15-acre PHX Renews site, is on the move. America’s largest urban garden project is set to plant new roots on 18th Avenue and Pierson Street. The project, started by Keep Phoenix Beautiful and championed by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton in 2012, has over 5,000 volunteer hours invested and hundreds of local gardeners involved since the project began. As a result of their swift departure, the Keep Phoenix Beautiful team is launching an Indiegogo campaign to raise $25,000 to help with the move and beginning stages at their new site. The new site will continue to host a solar home demonstration project, sustainability workshops for the community, as well as new garden beds for local gardeners. Funds raised will go towards revitalizing a vacant plot where two abandoned homes are being cleared to make way for the new garden. Efforts will go into grading, fencing, new soil, installation of the new garden beds, irrigation, gardening supplies, lighting and infrastructure, among other moving costs. Those interested in donating can visit bit. ly/renewthegarden. For more information, visit www.keepphxbeautiful.org.

O

ver the past year, Dr Erik Svans and Dr Steven Chang have treated 100’s of teeth with a revolutionary procedure to correct Gingival Recession away from a procedure called Pinhole Surgical Technique™ or PST™. The results have been very impressive, without the need for suturing and cutting donor tissue from your palate, which was required for Traditional Gingival Grafting. Focusing on solving the original cause of the recession first (overzealous brushing, history of periodontal disease, bruxism), and treating the affected sites with PST™ second, Dr Svans and Dr Chang have been able to provide an alternative to Gingival Recession Correction

ERIK P. SVANS DDS

predictably and reliably with minimal pain—the number one reason why patients and dentists dislike the Traditional approach. Pinhole Surgical Technique was designed to help those who suffer from Gingival Recession procedure that is considered the most painful procedure in Dentistry. Dr. Svans and Dr. Chang were two of the first dentists in Arizona and the United States trained and certified as Pinhole Surgical Technique™ Providers. During your Complimentary Consult, they can educate you on this amazing procedure and how they can help correct your receding gums without sutures and with mild post operative pain.

DREAMING OF SUMMER Help preserve Arizona’s first children’s oncology camp

If You Go...

WHAT: Dreams of Summer Gala WHEN: March 11, 6 p.m. WHERE: The Camby Hotel, 2401 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix TICKETS: Individual, $175; couple, $300; table of eight, $900. INFORMATION: www.dreamsofsummergala.org.

outhwest Kids’ Cancer Foundation is continuing its tradition of raising funds for the first camp in Arizona for children with cancer and their siblings at its Fourth Annual Dreams of Summer Gala. This year, the “Under the Stars” themed event invites community and business leaders, influencers, and anyone that has been impacted by cancer to purchase tickets for the gala. Each ticket purchased helps support programs throughout the year including Arizona Camp Sunrise, a camp that has been open for 35 years for children who have or have had cancer, and Sidekicks, a camp that is in its 30th year for siblings of children who have or have had cancer. “In July, children from all over Arizona and the Southwestern United States

who are fighting or surviving cancer are provided a week of summer camp at Arizona Camp Sunrise at no cost to their families,” says Barbara Nicholas, executive director/chief development officer of Arizona Camp Sunrise and Sidekicks. “Their siblings can also attend their own designated week of camp in July through Arizona Camp Sidekicks.” The money raised throughout the evening will go toward programming for both camps, which service children ages 3 to 18, where the children can build lifelong friendships with others who understand their journey and the struggles they face on a daily basis. “Arizona Camp Sunrise gives these children the chance to be a normal kid going to summer camp – and not the kid with cancer,” Nicholas explains. “With activities such as horseback riding, fishing, and gathering around a campfire, UPTOWN |

campers are able to enjoy their summer as any other kid would, while also receiving the medical attention and assistance they need on-site. Through our sibling’s camp, siblings of kids diagnosed with cancer are also able to go to camp with peers who share a similar life experience.” Upwards of 300 attendees will gather for this cause while they enjoy a cocktail hour, silent auction, elegant dinner, music, and live auction hosted by renowned charity auctioneer, Jennie Heal. “This year’s live auction items include many wonderful getaways including a trip to Las Vegas; Rocky Point, Mexico; the resort town of McCall, Idaho; and the beautiful Chateau St. Michelle Winery in Washington. We also have several pieces of choice jewelry that will be auctioned off live,” Nicholas shares. The silent auction includes experience packages from Arizona sports teams, items from local boutiques, and photography sessions. The evening will also showcase a special performance by the children who attend the camps. “The audience will be able to feel the sense of community among the children and see firsthand the impact that the camp has on their lives,” Nicholas says. Last year, the Dreams of Summer Gala raised $120,000 that went towards funding Arizona Camp Sunrise and Sidekicks. This year, Southwest Kids’ Cancer Foundation’s goal is to raise $150,000 in order to bring in the highest amount ever raised through the gala.

Attendees will learn what the Steele Children’s Research Center does and how it helps children throughout Arizona. “Guests will enjoy a complimentary bar for the first hour while the silent auction is taking place, then they will move into the ballroom to hear speakers impacted by Steele Children's Research Center, take part in a live auction, enjoy a delicious meal and see 55 amazing child models strutting their stuff down the run way!” says Tammy Ryan, event co-chair. The models will be sporting fashions from The Garage and all shoes will be designed by each model and produced by Vans. As for the auctions... “We have a proven history of continuing to raise the bar… you’ll just have to attend to see what’s in store this year,” says Janey Cook, event co-chair. While we can’t give away all of the live and secret auction secrets, we can tell you that it’s all about the experiences – think private planes, fabulous wine, incredible food, luxurious resorts, live music and, of course, diamonds. This year’s event will focus on the theme, "It's A Small World" and raise money for PANDA’s Children’s Autoimmunity and Allergies Project. The project seeks to help unravel the mystery of common autoimmune issues among children–  type 1 diabetes, juvenile arthritis, Crohn’s disease, colitis, severe food allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis, and celiac disease.

FARMER IN THE HOUSE

Indulge in the 11th annual farm-to-table dinner series BY ALISON BAILIN BATZ

E

ach year since 2006, fourth generation farmer Pat Duncan, whose popular Duncan Trading Company farm in Laveen, Arizona grows more than 150 fruits and vegetables for use by local chefs and resorts, has partnered with restaurants across the Valley on a series of hyperlocal, farm-to-table dinners affectionately called “The Farmer in the House.” “Through the program, each chef creates a unique menu utilizing the freshest, most flavorful fruits and vegetables from my farm,” Duncan explains. “Each chef also aligns with a vineyard partner or works with his/her in-house team to pair each course with wines that highlight the produce and flavors of each course.” A portion of the proceeds from each event are donated to the Association of Arizona Food Banks, whose mission is to deliver food and services to food banks and to foster relationships in support of eliminating hunger across our state. Each dinner starts at 6 p.m. (with the exception

of Blue Hound Kitchen beginning at 6:30 p.m.) and prices for the dinners range from $60 to $110, which vary based on the venue, winery partner and number of courses. Here is a sneak peek at some of the restaurants hosting this year:

VINCENT’S ON CAMELBACK March 24 Chef/owners Vincent and Leevon Guerithault are partnering with DRNK Winery for the dinner, who focus on small lot wines that are based in the Russian River Valley in Northern California. www. vincentsoncamelback.com.

CREOLE LEMONADE

A New Orleans-inspired beverage bursting with flavor BY ALISON BAILIN BATZ PHOTO BY DEBBY WOLVOS

M

ardis Gras might be over, but there is always Big Easy flavor on tap at Southern Rail, especially when it comes to their libations. “Our crowd favorite Creole Lemonade is a slight variation of a gallon jug drink my friends and I would make for our days out waterskiing on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. The main difference – we use better ingredients than in our cash-strapped youth,” says T. Scott Stephens, managing partner of Southern Rail. Served year-round in a mason jar, the Creole Lemonade ($10) begins with homemade lemonade. Cedar Ridge Rum and Hangar Citron then serve as the base spirits of the cocktail, which combine to create a smoky, bright citrus foundation. “We also add Tapatio Tequila, a fullbodied, 75-year-old Mexican brand only recently available in the United States, as well as Pimm’s, a gin with herbal botanicals, caramelized orange and delicate spices, into the mix,” Stephens says. The spirits are combined in a shaker over ice, and strained into a mason jar. “The wow factor – we add a dash or two of Louisiana’s own Crystals Hot Sauce – and true to its name there are actual physical crystals of hot sauce.” The result is slightly sweet and pleasantly sour with clear notes of citrus and mini explosions of heat.

cuisine

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY? The food industry is deeply ingrained in both sides of my family. I come from a long line of very successful entrepreneurs in the food industry. I have some pretty big shoes to fill. I'm working on making them proud. WHAT INSPIRED YOUR STYLE OF COOKING? My style of cooking is specifically inspired by my mother’s side of the family, which is 100 percent Hispanic. TO YOU, FOOD IS… Memories. IF YOU WEREN’T A RESTAURATEUR, YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE… A shoe or handbag designer. WHEN YOU’RE NOT AT THE STAND, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU? Watching my kids play soccer – I have a 16-year-old and a 12-year-old that play club and I really enjoy watching them play. Out in the beautiful weather on a lawn chair is a great day for me! WHAT’S SOMETHING READERS WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT THE STAND? The Stand used to be a Dairy Queen! Also I'm have celiac disease, so 99 percent of the menu is gluten-free. We have glutenfree buns upon request. I can't claim that my place is 100 percent gluten-free because of the mainstream buns that I serve. However, we always do our best to keep from cross-contamination. WHAT’S YOUR STAND ORDER? My stand order is a standard with cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, Stand sauce, ketchup, crispy fries, and a chocolate chili shake. WHAT’S UP WITH THE MIX OF BURGERS AND TACOS ON THE MENU? It's a nod to all communities that reside in Arizona. We have a cultural mix and I wanted to address that with our menu offering. We have something for everyone! ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED STAND MENU ITEMS IS: The chocolate chili shake – it's spicy, chocolatey and straight up delicious! The Stand Burgers & Tacos, 3538 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix; 602.314.5259; www.thestandbnt.com.

THE BEST OF BALI

Escape to paradise with overthe-top luxury in Indonesia BY SUSAN LANIER-GRAHAM

Mandapa: A Rare Resort Located about 90 minutes north of the airport, Ubud is the cultural center of Bali; Hindu temples and rice terraces define Ubud much the same way today as it has for centuries. Nowhere will you find that better exemplified than at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Mandapa, named after the Sanskrit word for temple, opened in September 2015 as the third Ritz-Carlton Reserve property in the world. Mandapa is extraordinary, hugging the banks of the Ayung River, surrounded by lush forests but close to the center of Ubud. The intimate retreat has 35 luxurious suites and 25 private pool villas, each with its own Paith (butler). The best accommodations are the riverfront private pool villas, decorated in traditional yet contemporary Balinese design. There is a Balinese garden with an outdoor shower, a massive indoor

shower and soaking tub, a separate house with a living/dining area, and breathtaking views from your private pool. For all-day dining, taste traditional Balinese cuisine and sample items from the chef’s organic garden at Sawah Terrace, which overlooks rice terraces and the tropical forest. For dinner, dine in one of nine private bamboo waterfront cocoons at Kubu, the resort’s fine dining Mediterranean-European restaurant. Mandapa Spa offers a tranquil sanctuary rooted in holistic Balinese customs. Every visit to the spa begins with a traditional Balinese welcoming foot ritual and ends with a cup of infused tea. The spa’s signature massage treatments – Royal Spice Ceremony, Romance Ritual and Journey to Serenity – highlight indigenous ingredients, while alternative healing treatments, like Reiki, help align the mind, body and spirit.

Exploring Ubud Mandapa can suggest a driver who will take you around Ubud for the day, and your driver can point out the many Hindu temples dotting the city. While some are closed to the public, others welcome visitors. Exploring the local market is a great way to experience local life and the hustle and bustle that can only be found in Asian markets. Afterward, head to the nearby Museum Puri Lukisan, Ubud’s oldest museum. It offers a glimpse at the heritage of Balinese art, and while the museum itself is quite small with a selection of paintings and woodcarvings, the grounds are exquisite.

It’s also brimming with rare plants, Hindu temples and walking paths. Bali Pulina Agro Tourism is about five miles outside Ubud, surrounded by rice terraces. This is an ideal spot to learn about Ubud’s agricultural richness, and the coffee in particular. Bali Pulina will let you do a tasting of different types of coffees and cocoas along with the most expensive Balinese coffee: Kopi Luwak. It’s a lovely way to spend a couple of hours, sipping coffee from a high terrace and looking out across the lush Balinese countryside.

Because it is only

seven miles from Ngurah Rai International Airport, this is an ideal spot for your last few days in Bali. While RIMBA Jimbaran features beautiful rooms and suites with natural themes, over-the-top experiences await at The Villas at AYANA, where guests have their own 24-hour butlers. There are 78 pool villas and your wish is only a call away, whether it’s a Champagne brunch in the pool or a floral bubble bath for two. There is a shuttle between each of the resorts, giving guests 18 dining and bar options, several private beaches and 11 swimming pools.

The deviled eggs ($2 each) at Beckett’s Table are heaven sent. Sourced from Hickman’s Farms, Chef Justin Beckett was inspired to add the Southern staple to the menu after eating his way through several dozen in Austin. He first folds sour cream, mayonnaise, roasted garlic, salt and pepper into the cooked yolks as the base. Then, based on the season, news of the day or his mood, Beckett compliments the classic recipe with a cheeky twist – perhaps by adding green chili pork, bacon onion jam or Thai curry, among other inspired ingredients – both inside the yolk and on top. The result is an explosion of flavor that changes weekly. 3717 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix; 602.954.1700; www.beckettstable.com. MARCH 2017 |

GO GREEN!

7 spectacular salads that make eating your veggies a delight ALISON BAILIN BATZ

W

hat better time than March to think green – as in salads. But if salad conjures images of simple mixed greens with less-than-thrilling garnishes, think again. Thanks to the ingenuity of local chefs, salads have gone from “rabbit food” to plates of refreshing, flavorful art. So, before you skip over the salad section of the menu, take note of these seven noshworthy veggie variations.

Nook Kitchen Dish: Harvest Quinoa, $15 About: A base of mixed baby greens is paired with celery, avocado, roasted sweet potatoes, shredded manchego cheese, white quinoa, granny smith apples, dried cranberries, spiced pecans and tossed in Champagne vinaigrette. With the amount of ingredients that go into this dish, it sure is a feast! 3623 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix; 602.651.1390; www.nookkitchen.com.

Blue Hound Kitchen & Cocktails

Different Pointe of View Dish: Roasted Golden Beet & Frisee Salad, $10.95 About: Are your taste buds ready? This plate packs a refreshing punch of sweet and bitter flavors as the natural sugars in the beets and oranges balance the slight bitterness of the chicory lettuce. The apricot stilton pulls the salad together as pine nuts lend a warm undertone and provide a delicious crunch. 11111 N. 7th St., Phoenix; 602.866.6350; www.tapatiocliffshilton.com. UPTOWN |

HOW SWEET IT IS

Longtime pie business opens its first brick-and-mortar locale BY GABBY RICHMAN PHOTO BY DEBBY WOLVOS

lthough Traci Wilbur can’t exactly remember the first pie she ever made, she knows it was probably as an assistant to her mother – a woman she deems a great beaker and her inspiration. “She was and still is the pie baker extraordinaire,” Wilbur admires. In addition to the family tie she has to baking in general (she also assisted her grandmother), there’s something about pie that Wilbur can’t shake. “I like the simplicity of the ingredients and the complexity of the emotions that they [pies] evoke in people,” Wilbur says. So much so that she decided to start a business based on pies eight years ago called Pie Snob. “When I first started the business, I was looking online for [name] ideas and I noticed that when people were talking about pie they kept saying ‘Well, I'm a pie snob’ and I thought, ‘Yes! That is exactly how I feel about it!’” Wilbur recalls. Pie Snob has been running as a special-order business and now the company is finally taking the leap, opening its very first storefront location this month. The space, found by Wilbur’s husband, is a cozy shop adorned with black-and-white tile (taking inspiration from their existing bakery) and pink accents. The store has a slight vintage vibe with a welcoming, comfortable feel that makes you want to cuddle up with a slice of your favorite pie and a cup of coffee. “[Expanding to a storefront] has always been something we talked about” Wilbur explains. “When this location came

to our attention we knew it was the time to give it a try.” Customers will have the opportunity to pick up a pie (or slice) on a whim, although Wilbur still suggests pre-ordering if you have a specific flavor in mind. “Now my customers will have the opportunity to pick up a pie last minute,” she says. “I hope it opens us to new customers who have wanted to try, but didn’t want to take a chance on a whole pie. It also allows me to experiment with flavors and seasonal offerings.” Some varieties that Pie Snob will carry include customer favorites such as the apple pie (their biggest seller on the menu), cream pies and lemon meringue pie. In addition, the store will also offer some unusual flavors such as green chile apple and some old fashioned throwback flavors like buttermilk. As for seasonal flavors, Wilbur gave us a sneak peak of what is to come: “Rhubarb and rhubarb combos such UPTOWN |

as strawberry rhubarb will be making their first appearance this year. Springtime is also when we sell quite a few of our lemon tarts. They are just so pretty. I think they scream spring,” she says. Whether you’re ordering a classic or a new, unique offering, there’s something that all Pie Snob varieties have in common – Wilbur’s secret to a great pie. “A really good, flakey crust. Crust can make or break a pie,” she divulges. And although it’s clear from the sweet shop’s name that Wilbur’s main gig is pies, Pie Snob also offers exciting other sweets, such as cheesecakes and tarts. “The new store will allow me to try out new flavors, and offer more varieties. We already make five flavors of cheesecakes, but will probably expand our tart selection.” Pie Snob is open Tuesday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 3630 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix; 480.635.2425; www.piesnob.com.
