LETTER FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

Let me just come out and say it: Santa Barbara is probably one of the best places to live in the world.

I don’t think I will get much argument on that front. Its sheer beauty is reason number one. Its history, its people, its landscape, its activities all add up to perfection as well. I have traveled all over the world, and I can honestly say, while other places may be insanely beautiful (hello Capri, Venice, Florence, Paris!), it’s Santa Barbara that I enjoy coming home to. For many years, I’ve heard the joke that the town is filled with “newlyweds and nearly deads,” but I think that is changing. I have seen many young families who dot the parks and inhabit our diverse schools. The new stores popping up with stylish offerings, the exploding restaurant and wine scene (i.e., the Santa Barbara Public Market and the Funk Zone)…times they are a changin’ here in paradise. There is new life in our Garden of Eden. Just look at Donald Robertson (aka Donald “Drawbertson”). As a bigwig at Estée Lauder, Robertson is now indulging his artistic side. His whimsical illustrations are taking the fashion world by storm, but even more exciting for us is that he is now obsessed with all things Santa Barbara. After spending a summer here with his family—a suggestion from longtime friend Dewey Nicks—he’s roaming our streets and pumping out artwork inspired by our surroundings. He took to marker and paper for our feature “Out on the West Coast” (page 128)—a colorful peek inside his world, and what a Technicolor world it is!

Interiors icon Paul Fortune has created homes for some of the most high-profile clients in the world—Marc Jacobs being among them. When Fortune decided to forgo his Los Angeles life and find a place of respite, Ojai was his first choice. He and his husband, Chris Brock, found a hilltop plot of land and set their sights to design their dream home. Knowing that it will take a few years to create, they turned a small cottage and vintage Spartan trailer into their temporary digs. We visit them at their off-the-beaten-path haven (“Fate & Fortune,” page 122) and discover they certainly aren’t roughing it with a “guesthouse” hooked up to a Rolls-Royce! I can almost taste the delicious feast that was created by Outstanding in the Field and chef Clark Staub in front of Morro Bay’s big rock (“At Water’s Edge,” page 134). We take a seat at their creative and inspired meal. And, as it is time for the crush—grape crush that is—we peruse the Santa Ynez Valley with all of its new offerings (“Full House,” page 41) and ones to watch like Bell Street Farm’s Jamie Gluck (“SB People,” page 78). And who knew that actor Kurt Russell (“SB People,” page 76) is swilling his own vintages at the new tasting room in the 1880 Union Hotel saloon in Los Alamos? Besides launching wine and restaurant empires, Charles and Ali Banks have created an idyllic family home for entertaining in the heart of Montecito (“Southern Hospitality,” page 142). A mix of antiques and safari collectibles, it is unexpected, fun, yet traditional at the same time. The same could be said for the new reputation this town should adapt—“unexpectedly fun but still seriously beautiful?” Or, on second thought, perhaps we should keep it a secret. Do we really want to share this utopia with the rest of the world? Your call.

Jennifer Hale

AROUND TOWN

MASTERS of Craft Producing bold and original spirits from locally foraged flora, brothers-in-law Henry Tarmy and James Greenspun along with brothers Andrew and Anthony Caspary—collectively known as Ventura Spirits— are shaking up the small-batch distillery movement with their Central Coast-inspired concoctions. Using the area’s bounty of native herbs and botanicals, each of the original spirits manifests our region’s natural essence while staying true to the traditional distilling process. “We like to imagine what liquor would be like if distilling had been invented here,” says Tarmy. “Our goal is to communicate the sensory experience of a walk through the chaparral in the springtime.” While the Wilder gin (made from yerba santa, purple sage, and California sage), the strawberrybased California vodka, and Opuntia (the “tequila of California” made from cactus fruit), are quickly making their way to the top shelf, the quartet soon hopes to expand their repertoire with aged whiskeys, fruit brandies, and, in true beach-city fashion, an umami spirit from the sea. –M.

WHO Dryden Wilson Tate Brown, 18, three-time National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) scholar of the year, drydenbrown.com, @Drydenbrown. WHAT During a yearlong excursion around the globe with his family, Brown found his love for surfing in Byron Bay, Australia, where he spent almost every day after school riding waves. Having enjoyed competing in football and basketball, he decided to try competitive surfing at age 12. At 16, Brown started taking titles in NSSA competitions and is now sponsored by Channel Islands, Arbor Collective, and Smith Optics. WHERE Has surfed competitively in Fiji, Hawaii, and Indonesia, but you’ll find him riding local breaks at Coral Casino and Hammonds. HOW “One of my greatest challenges has been balancing the time demands between school and surfing. My parents understood the importance of academic achievement, so we worked to create an environment that allowed for academic excellence while giving me the flexibility to pursue competitive surfing. I was lucky to find a great surf coach, Isao Tomatsuri, who guided and shaped my growth as a surfer. After exploring a number of academic approaches, I found Eureka School in Santa Barbara—it met my need for flexibility while offering interesting yet challenging classes.” WHAT’S NEXT Traveling and working with surf photographers while applying to colleges. Look for Brown to launch a nonprofit, Street Certified, with his trainer Andy Schmeiss.

MAKE SURE the children will be busy with activities and cool stuff to do, but keep it under two to three hours max. OFFER FOOD that kids can easily eat like tea sandwiches, crudités, or fruits in cups. Make the bites smaller—same for cupcakes. Parents are happy when you have healthy options and less waste.

STYLE THE SPARK The

two met in Spanish class the summer before their senior year at Pepperdine University. The first day of class, the professor asked everyone to mingle with one another and converse with someone in Spanish. Angelia bluntly admits, “I made a beeline for Viktor.” Hola and gracias quickly found common ground (their parents lived a mere two miles from each other in Montecito). Disregarding the professor’s request that they speak only in Español, the conversation turned into a first date at the Hollywood Bowl’s Bob Marley tribute concert and a weekend riding Vespas around Santa Barbara. The rest is history. Cayman Island-raised, great-grandson of oil tycoon and famed art collector Dr. Armand Hammer, Viktor serves as the vice president of the Armand Hammer Foundation, an honorary board member of the Hammer Museum in Westwood, and is a financial advisor with Morgan Stanley. Angelia is an academic (magna and summa cum laude in double majors), athlete (NCAA Division I tennis player), and writer (now a new associate editor at Santa Barbara Magazine). They were married last August in a traditional ceremony at the Old Mission Santa Barbara.

THE WHO’S AND I DO’S

LIVING IS GIVING The

duo is committed in service to others—they serve as honorary board members of research-aid organization Stop Cancer, among others. And Angelia, with her mother Evon, founded El Campo del Sol, a summer camp for the children of Carpinteria’s migrant workers.

Rebecca McKinney, owner of downtown’s latest style nucleus Whistle Club, is a bicoastal voguish wonder. From the moment she completed her undergraduate degree at UC Santa Barbara to her first corporate job at e-commerce giant Gilt Groupe followed by a graduate degree in fashion marketing from Manhattan’s Parsons New School for Design, McKinney had her eyes and heart set on returning to Santa Barbara. “I knew there was an untapped opportunity in the contemporary to entry price point designer market,” she says, and introducing an “East-meets-West coast design sensibility would offer something new to the community.” Acknowledging the shift in her own closet from a darker monochromatic palette with sharp textures to lighter colors and flowing fabrics since moving back to the left coast, she affirms her main goal is to “fill the niche” and introduce “a playful edge” to our beachy-boho sensibility. –A.

Passion for life experience and meaning is probably the most common thread to compel artists of any medium. For Bryan Babcock and his wife, Lisa Boisset-Babcock, it’s their love that brought them to Santa Barbara, >

SB PEOPLE but it’s their passion for their separate crafts and careers that brings their creative paths together in a new tasting room. In Santa Barbara County, one of the prolific pioneers in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is the Babcock estate vineyard. Bryan’s father bought the property in 1979 and planted mainly white wine varieties he loved to pair with seafood at the family’s restaurant, Walt’s Wharf, in Seal Beach. In 1984, Bryan returned from Davis just shy of a masters in enology to help with the first harvest. He never went back and since, has been producing wines of distinction with a maverick spirit and relentless drive. Today, this experience extends further as Lisa joins in to revamp the tasting room, bringing her personal touch with a bold look and creative vibe, including items from estate sales and flea markets that express her mantra of “Savor the past; live in the present.” As Lisa explains, “I love the personality behind each find.” Though a mutual friend introduced Bryan CLOCKWISE FROM TOP and Lisa at Occidental College in 1980, it LEFT: A peek inside wasn’t until 10 years later that the two started the recently redecodating and eventually married. At first, they rated tasting room. each made the commute between Los Angeles “Bryan makes incredible handcrafted juice, and the winery, nestled in the rolling hills continuing a tradition between Buellton and Lompoc, but after seven that I supplement years, the couple decided to make Santa Barwith my own je ne bara their full-time home, eventually moving to sais quoi,” says Lisa. Montecito, where they now live with son Sean, 16, and daughter Chloe, 12. Lisa’s career in fashion still takes her to Los Angeles two days a week where she acts as vice president of merchandising for Forever 21. Originally, she had seen herself in a social working job—perhaps as a therapist helping people—but a chance meeting with the general manager of the Beverly Center, Bullock’s department store offered her a job in training to be a buyer. “Serendipity put me on a track to making my living from shopping, creating, and transacting with others,” she says. “It brought out a different creative side of me.” Growing up in Tehran, Iran, Lisa recalls the city’s bazaars that shaped her inquisitive gypsy style. “I remember loving the one-of-a-kind nature of it all, the intricate rug patterns, the juxtaposition of the colors in the textiles, the rambling nature of items being strewn about,” says Lisa, who derives the inspiration for the finds in their tasting room’s decor, which combines a flea market atmosphere with an elegant, yet midcentury, rock ‘n’ roll cool. “Bryan had changed a barrel room around for a party, and I said, ‘Why can’t we do this all year round?’” For Bryan, it’s the continuation of a great unfolding story in Santa Barbara County wine, although in the beginning, while helping his father with the winery, he wasn’t all too convinced of the wine business. “I wasn’t completely sure if it was where I saw myself for the long run,” he thought as he worked on the family vineyard. Then five years into it, Bryan “went on a Sangiovese crusade to Italy. When I walked into Castello di Volpaia—here is a place that they had been making wine for 2,000 years, winemakers were revered, and wine was so important— that’s when I thought to myself, The sky is the limit with what wine can mean.” Since then, Bryan has always been looking to take things further and make his time count. Although coming from seemingly divergent creative directions, Bryan and Lisa have found each other in the commonality of the wine experience and passion in the pursuit of a good life. –ROB DAFOE 74

At the Work’s winery, Russell produces 1,500 cases of handcrafted, high-end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for his label GoGi, his nickname since childhood. “I make wine for myself. I make it to my taste, to what I like, and my hope is when somebody opens it up, they share that with me. I’m in that bottle, and I’m clear about that, and I just love the reality of that,” Russell says. “And now that I have a place to showcase it, I’m really happy.” GoGi and Ampelos wines are poured in an affable atmosphere, their new tasting room, The Wine Saloon, which opened this year in the 1880 Union Hotel in Los Alamos. “We wanted to make it a place where people who like to try wines and buy wines and drink wine would have the opportunity to do all three and do it in a historic setting,” he says. “It gives wine drinkers a saloon to go to.” –Wendy Thies S ell

Jamie Gluck fa s h i o n t o fa r m f r e s h

Strolling into Bell Street Farm—the popular wine country cafe/market situated in the sleepy town of Los Alamos up the 101—one immediately gets a sense of owner Jamie Gluck based on the hearty welcome and friendly hugs he doles out to his customers as he takes their orders behind the walk-up counter. The casual yet refined American restaurant not only offers fresh food and local wine of the same caliber but reflects the full circle Gluck, now 47, has made—starting with his upbringing in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and in the kitchens and on the floor of his family’s fine-dining French restaurant, then to a sophisticated career in fashion marketing and merchandising on the East and West coasts, to an authentic life split between the Santa Ynez Valley and Los Angeles. Having learned the ropes in his family’s restaurant—“my dad was a French-trained chef who taught me to cook ‘with feeling,’’’ he says—“French food has been a strong influence throughout my life.” The style and flavors are evident in his simple, distinctive menu that boasts salads, sandwiches, and charcuterie and cheese plates cocreated with his Santa Barbara-born chef, Jason Iroff. It even boils down to the French rotisserie used for roasting succulent chicken and pork. But it wasn’t always fine cuisine for Gluck. After graduating from the Art Institute of Southern California with a degree in graphic design in 1996, he immediately landed a job with apparel company Wet Seal and worked his way up to the position of creative director. During that tenure, he was introduced to Los Alamos in 2002 by some friends who had purchased a weekend home there. Inspired by their experience, Gluck and his husband, John Wentworth, “were looking for a remodeling project and a weekend getaway ourselves, so we bought an 1882 four-square house on a corner lot in town in 2007,” he says. Enter Bell Street Farm, which Gluck opened in August 2011. “After a couple of years of bringing friends up to see the beauty of the valley, I was determined that there was a need for more food,” he says. “I decided to return to my restaurant roots and bring the valley a fast, casual, farm-to-table, French-influenced cafe.” When Gluck and Wentworth are in Los Alamos on the weekends, you will find them at PHOTOGRAPHS BY MEGAN SOREL S A N TA B A R B A R A

the restaurant, jovially interacting with diners, then likely to be entertaining friends at home or at one of their favorite restaurants—“the original pioneers in Los Alamos (Cafe Quackenbush and Full of Life Flatbread) as well as the newer valley spots like Mattei’s Tavern, SY Kitchen, and Sides,” he says. As for the future of Bell Street Farm, Gluck plans to eventually expand the hours as well as the catering side of the business and

host events such as grilled cheese night with the Cheese Shop of Beverly Hills. “I’m always doing research to bring new foods and ideas to my customers,” says Gluck. “We just got back from eating our way through Spain and France and it was so inspiring.” But he’s staying put for the time being, doing what he does best: “We are truly bringing the best from local farms to a hungry audience. My focus is to make everyone leave happy.” –GINA Z. TERLINDEN FA L L 2 0 1 4

20,000 DREAMS Celebrating the Dream Foundation’s 20th anniversary

Amid Santa Barbara’s steady stream of soirees, the Dream Foundation’s annual Celebration of Dreams Gala remains unparalleled in the frenzy it stirs and the seven-figure revenue it generates. Yet, as we await this year’s event—produced by party planner extraordinaire Merryl Brown—on November 8, we anticipate a night laden with meaning as the organization celebrates its 20th anniversary, pays homage to its inception, and, most significantly, honors the “dreamers” for whom it is all intended. “We want a celebration of the life of the organization,” says executive director Kisa Heyer. Akin to any lasting story, the foundation’s two-decade-long narrative is rife with challenges and victories. When founder Thomas Rollerson sought an adult wish-granting agency on the heels of his partner Timothy Scott Palmer’s passing, he faced a rather bleak nonCLOCKWISE FROM profit landscape. Resolute in his campaign, his unceasing passion ignited TOP : Dream a firestorm of support, resulting in his founding and leading the first recipient Julie Harding with national charity aimed at realizing the wishes of terminally ill adults. her children; Despite Rollerson’s recent resignation as its president, Palmer’s Ronald Boyd; memory—along with the first “dreamer,” 40-year-old Santa Barbara loSeth Lasane. cal, Anthony, as well as the 20,000 dreams granted to recipients during the past two decades—remains a perpetual engine in the organization’s pursuit of bringing solace and quality of life to its recipients. With the help of individuals and commercial sponsors spearheading corporate responsibility, the Dream Foundation hopes to bring its own wishes for its dreamers and its future as an organization to fruition. For Heyer, the sky’s the limit. Though the foundation’s core programs (Dream Granting, Toy Program, and Flower Empower) “will remain unchanged going forward,” she looks toward “expanding and improving them” by way of widening “the reach of and leveraging the patient base of potential corporate partners” via specific programs for particular diseases. Here’s to 20,000 more dreams and dreamers. –ANGELIA DE MESITRE-HAMMER

H4O

Hands 4 Others brings freshwater to impoverished countries worldwide

Seventy percent of the earth is made up of water, but less than one percent is drinkable. Because of this, nine million people will die this year from lack of access to clean water. Since founded in 2009 by Laguna Blanca High School grad (class of 2011) Spencer Dusebout, 21, and his two friends Jack Davies and Scott Schurmer, Hands 4 Others—with the help of Water Mission International and hundreds of other like-minded activists—has provided clean water to nearly 150,000 people in poverty-stricken countries. “The goal is to change lives by giving them clean water, and in the process, show our generation that giving back feels good and is something we all ought to do,” says Dusebout. While the world’s water crisis is the principal driving force behind the youth-led nonprofit, H4O is bettering the future of our own community—and others like it—by granting young people a vehicle to make a tangible difference. Fostering citizenship, awareness, and leadership among middle school, high school, and college students around the globe, the organization hopes to generate life-long volunteers committed to making the world a better place. Each year, H4O awareness and fund-raising events such as letter-writing campaigns, walkathons, and spare-change drives culminate with the highly anticipated “vision trips” where volunteers install water filtration systems and witness first-hand the impact of their efforts. “I’ve seen women and children walk hours for water that looked more like coffee,” says Dusebout. “So watching someone drink clean water for the first time is a life-changing experience.” Expanding their venture, the water warriors have added a new program to their arsenal of initiatives, the H4O Marketplace. Slated to kick off this fall, the program collects donated used goods in lieu of money to then auction off through its online eBay store. “The thought process is: Look around the house, find an old iPhone or other items you no longer use, and donate them to the H4O Marketplace,” says Dusebout. “This is an easy way to help us solve the world’s water crisis while also allowing young people to take ownership.” –GRACE WOOLF

ost Californians would be surprised to learn that their indoor/outdoor lifestyle is largely the creation of one very creative man: Cliff May. Despite never having studied architecture and lacking a college degree, May (1908-1989) was responsible for transforming the Golden State’s residential landscape with his designs for custom and mass produced ranch-style homes, whose owners unconsciously adopted May’s vision of how life in California should be lived. A sixth-generation California native, May grew up in San Diego and spent considerable time on his family’s ranchos, where he fell in love with traditional U-shaped adobe ranch homes. “To me, when we lived on the ranch,” May once said, “with cross-ventilation and rooms spread out and around courtyards—basic old California plans—it seemed to be a much better way to build and live.” The quintessential Cliff May ranch house is a U-shaped post and beam building with several wings surrounding a courtyard or patio, and often includes May’s signature high-ceilinged livTop to bottom: Cliff May in the last house ing room topped he designed for with an overhead himself in Los Angeles skylight. “The in 1958; a May design ceilings are high in Borrego Springs, California; a recently and there’s a conrestored Cliff May tinuous skylight home in Montecito. going through the ridgeline that brings in this glorious wash of light,” says interior designer Micholyn Brown describing a 1969 Cliff May home she recently restored in Montecito. “I haven’t taken one person through who hasn’t been completely in awe and uplifted when they walk in the front door,” says Brown. The same can undoubtedly be said of May’s Oxbow residence in Alisal Ranch, which features a dramatic outdoor room shaded by an A-frame structure covered with rustic grape stakes—a visual reference to Santa Ynez Valley’s vineyards. Originally built in 1968, it is currently undergoing a respectful renovation. “We’ve known about this home for years,” says its enthusiastic new owner. “Our goal when we finish is that the home Cliff May built, and the home 50 years later, have the exact same feeling.” Cliff May got his start at age 24, designing and building spec homes

in San Diego with his father-in-law, a real estate developer. Based on that success—they sold 35 homes—May teamed up with a Los Angeles financier and designed small housing developments in Southern California. In 1950, taking advantage of the postwar building boom, May established Cliff May Homes with architect Chris Choate to design and sell low-cost home “packages” with preassembled panels to tract home builders. After the demand for mass-produced housing cooled, May went back to his true passion: designing custom homes. He continued to promote his view of the California lifestyle along with his house designs, aided by Sunset and House Beautiful magazines, which touted May’s designs not only for their progressive style but for their capacity to give homeowners access to a “special way of living—informal, yet gracious.” Over the course of his remarkable career, even as his floor plans became grander and his styling more modern, Cliff May remained faithful to the timeless essence of California adobes and ranch buildings and the lifestyle they represent. His designs and ideas remain relevant today, as evidenced by the renewed popularity of his tract homes, many of which are being restored by a new generation of owners who would likely agree with May’s conviction that people who don’t live in ranch houses “don’t know how to live.” –L.D.

Recognized near and far for our Moorishinspired architecture, warm terra-cotta-hued rooftops, and Mediterranean panache, Santa Barbara is a source of inspiration for interior decorators, doubling as a quiet yet superbly curated design shopping mecca. The epicenter? Tileco. With a three decade-long presence in the community, a new showroom in Santa Barbara, and freshly renovated store in Ventura, its top-notch service and carefully edited collection of rare and custom tiles can transform any kitchen, bathroom, or living space from run-of-the-mill drab to flip-worthy fab. Worth noting among its highly specialized and exclusive offerings are Italian porcelain planks (pictured below) in a range of sizes, textures, and colors that mimic “many different types of stone or wood, from traditional looks to rustic barn wood,” says vice president of sales and marketing Gina Flint. The tiles (from $3.95 each) can “take what is in nature and make it better while preserving it,” she says. Our fave? The bamboo-hued tile that lends a modern, Zenlike appeal to any space. She adds, “the possibilities are staggering, and more are coming in every month.” –A.d.h. TILECO. 7 N. Nopal St., Santa Barbara, 805564-1868, tilecodist.com.

FoR THE MOMENT ,

Alex Rasmussen’s creative talents receive more design recognition in Paris than in his native Santa Barbara, where he runs Neal Feay Company, an aluminum fabricator founded by his grandfather in 1946. Earlier this year, as part of the annual D’Days design festival in Paris, several vividly colored aluminum shelves, wall sconces, and salvers > Close-up view of anodized aluminum shelving produced by Neal Feay Company in collaboration with Opening Ceremony. 95

The process for produced by Rasmusmulticolored aluminum anodizing sen’s Santa Barbarabased company. was pioneered by Rasmussen’s grandfather, and over time, Neal Feay has produced everything from jewelry to high-end audio equipment casings. For several years, Rasmussen—a technical whiz and self-taught designer—has collaborated with top international designers (Holly Hunt, Jony Ive, Marc Newson) and luxury retailing powerhouses (Louis Vuitton, Opening Ceremony, Kenzo) to produce aluminum objects, furniture, and large-scale architectural facades.

WRITING ON THE WALL it’s easy to forget that until recently, the main source of information for most people was the public library. In “Requiem for the Bibliophile” running September 7 through December 14 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCA), six artists address the fate of the modern library in the digital age. Conceived and cocurated by MCA executive director Miki Garcia and curator J.V. Decemvirale, the show’s artists form an international group, hailing from New Zealand (Mickey Smith), Cuba (Carlos Garaicoa), Mexico (Jorge Méndez Blake), New York (David Horvitz and Xaviera Simmons), and California (Nancy Gifford). Artist Jorge Méndez Blake focuses on the political and architectural structure of libraries. His installation, Project for an Empty Library I—a scale model of a library’s interior skeleton with rows Gifford’s 10-foot-by-32-foot Lament. of empty bookshelves—is a potent reminder that books are vanishing; but the framework suggests the possibility of a future library under construction. Santa Barbara artist Nancy Gifford mourns the potential demise of books in her monumental installation, Lament. Gifford covers an entire wall with layers of tattered and worn antique book covers, some bearing traces of faded gilding. Detached from their readable content, the repurposed covers are a memento mori to the power books formerly had to convey knowledge. Featuring newly commissioned artworks, including architectural proposals, video, and large-scale installations, this timely exhibition is an elegant and thought-provoking examination of the ever-changing way information is consumed in the 21st century. – L .

The Right Stuff Considering his time spent piloting a U.S. Air Force metal-clad fighter jet, it’s no surprise architect Barton Myers is world-renowned for his metal buildings, including his own much-published Toro Canyon home. An award-winning éminence grise of the architecture world (and Annapolis Naval Academy graduate), Myers is the subject of a retrospective at UC Santa Barbara’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum from September 12 through December 12. Culled from his donated archives housed within the museum’s Architecture & Design Collection, “Barton Myers: Works of Architecture and Urbanism” presents an extensive overview of the architect’s prolific 50-year practice. “While he is known best for his steel and glass pavilion houses here, he is well-known elsewhere for his exceptional theaters,” says the exhibition’s curator, Kris Miller-Fisher. His most recent public theater design, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Florida, opens its doors on Myers’s 80th birthday in November. –L . D. P.

Yet, on the ground, air heavy with salty moisture and roadside stalks of sweetgrass serve as gentle reminders that Charleston, South Carolina, is just a different sort of Southern gem.

The scent teases you the moment you enter the boutique hostelry on the white-sand beach in Tulum. That’s as it should be, because the perfume is part of the story of Coqui Coqui, which includes not only the seven-room inn on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, but a four-room property near the Mayan ruins in Coba and residences in the colorful colonial towns of Valladolid and Merida. The tale begins here in 2001 with a day spa that Argentine-born model Nicolas Malleville opened with a friend and the signature botanical lotions and perfumes he created. Eventually, Malleville and his Italian-born wife Francesca Bonato added rooms, renovated an abandoned perfumery in Valladolid, and set up a botanical garden on a lagoon in Coba. Their simple but unique hotel—publicized by friends like Jade Jagger and other fashion industry insiders—has grown into several stylish sanctuaries. The Coqui Coqui Tulum remains spare and minimal, decorated in tones of chocolate and burlap, which contrast with the brilliant turquoise sea visible from the terrace.

ince moving to Ojai last October,

Paul Fortune and Chris Brock have by all means gotten back to the basics. Albeit, basics for this interior design icon (Fortune has spruced up Marc Jacobs’s New York townhouse, Aileen Getty’s San Francisco palatial home, art world It Girl Dasha Zhukova’s Saint Bart’s compound, not to mention reviving Hollywood’s deco landmark Sunset Tower Hotel) is a picturesque two-bedroom bungalow and a vintage RollsRoyce up a dusty trail while drinking in the “Pink Moment” sunsets on the Topatopa Mountains. A far cry from the starlets and stimuli of Los Angeles, where the recently married couple of 14 years lived the luxe

life in Laurel Canyon, and lead successful design, floral, and garden businesses. “After 30 years, we needed somewhere that felt restorative, not redundant,” says Fortune. “We found that Ojai fit the bill.” And did it ever. While both practice yoga and meditation daily, Brock is now exploring large ceramic forms with art deco influence, and Fortune continues consulting with clients and is considering opening a gallery for “really rare and beautiful art, ceramics, and antiquities,” he says. Herewith, we had the fortune (pun intended) to spend a day with the sartorial duo, indulging in opera, paying homage to David Hockney, and discovering that a Paul Fortune-decorated aluminum trailer might just be the chicest guesthouse ever.

What was the final or definitive push to leave Los Angeles? We found that the things we liked about L.A. were

fast disappearing and we didn’t like what they were being replaced with. After Les Deux Cafes closed (where we met in fact, and which I designed and was a partner in), we didn’t really have a place to go. We like tablecloths and a place where the noise level doesn’t make your ears bleed. The Sunset Tower Hotel was a final try at restoring some of the old Hollywood glamour we loved, but it was overrun by the new Hollywood and that was that! What’s a typical day for you both now that you’re off the beaten path? We do yoga and qigong classes with Ingrid Boulting at The Sacred Space, lunch at Farmer and the Cook, and gardening. I still work on projects and

ome people gaze at Morro Rock—which juts up out of the ocean up the coast from Santa Barbara—and think, Wouldn’t it be interesting to kayak around it? Not Clark Staub. The chef and entrepreneur behind Full of Life Flatbread in Los Alamos had long imagined a seafoodbased feast out on the water in the rock’s shadow. “I like to cook embracing what’s surrounding me,” Staub says. So when Outstanding in the Field’s Jim Denevan asked for suggestions for one of their artisanal farm-to-table dinners, Staub seized his opportunity. Last November, 118 lucky diners sat down at Outstanding in the Field’s signature long communal table, which had been placed not on seafaring vessels, but more prudently in the shelter of a dune on a pristine sand spit between the channel and Morro Bay. The spirit of adventure presided over the event all the same, beginning with the boat ride that shuttled guests to the venue and including the sensation of being in a wild unpopulated place exposed to the elements as the late fall weather changed from a sunny midday to a blustery late afternoon. OITF dinners are always about introducing guests to the farmers who provide the ingredients for the meal. In this case, the “farmer” was Neal Maloney, proprietor of Morro Bay Oysters. While Denevan gave his introductory remarks, Maloney, wearing vivid red-orange waders, was pulling up the crustaceans from the water and shucking them for appetizers on the spot. As the guests mingled, they also sampled Staub’s seafood sausage and artichokes stuffed with eggplant, and sipped a Tolosa rosé—the first of the sustainable, solar-powered winery’s vintages that were paired with each of the evening’s courses. Also on offer with the appetizers was a vodka from Paso Robles-based Re:Find, which distills its handcrafted spirits from spent grapes. The meal continued with dishes that evoked the tastes and sights of the sea, as well as other fresh, local products. The unusual salad was composed of foraged ingredients: “Purslane is a succulent,” notes Staub. “It literally grows

wild, but it’s high in vitamin C.” Another succulent, samphire—sometimes called sea beans—added a salty flavor and crunch, while nasturtiums, an edible flower, contributed color. Staub followed that course with the flatbread pizza he’s known for, this time topped with oysters and pork belly. “We also used stinging nettles, which are super nutritious,” he says. The heat of cooking eliminates the sting of the plant, which grows in water or where the land is moist. The entree was sea bass, caught out at the Channel Islands, filleted, and roasted in the portable pizza oven Staub had barged out to the sand spit. He served the fish atop vegetables ingeniously designed to resemble a tide pool. Braised and roasted multicolor peewee potatoes provided the bed. “We slow stewed kale,” he says, “so it looked like seaweed, then we took the stems of rainbow chard, all different colors, and put them in ice water, so they curled.” To create his sea kelp ice cream for dessert, Staub had paddled out to Cayucos and harvested kombu, a seaweed that contains a natural preservative. “We brought the kelp back to Los Alamos, made ice cream, and steeped the kombu in the cream, which gave it a kind of salty, umami taste,” he says. Warm quince bread pudding provided a contrast of temperatures and textures, and a topping of homemade hard candy broken into bits added the look of “sea glass.” The dinner was a way of “bringing fun and adventure to dining,” says Denevan, who was able to use the waterside sand to create his installation art circles. “You get deeply involved in the elements” in a venue like this, he adds, with Morro Bay and the rock right there. “Clark is up for anything, and he pulls it off with aplomb.” n 139

F HOSPITALITY is an art, Charles and Ali Banks are creating museum-quality work. Sharing good times with family and friends seems to be second nature to the couple. Which may explain why they enjoy meshing their private lives with an astonishing number of businesses that range, not surprisingly, from restaurants and food and wine events to vineyards and wineries in California, France, New Zealand, and South Africa. Inspired by the smell of jasmine on a February morning, the couple—both originally from Atlanta—moved to Montecito from San Francisco in 2001 and have lived in several houses since. But the two-story half-timbered home they bought almost seven years ago has proved to be the perfect backdrop for their lifestyle and their three children, 18-yearold Mini, 10-year-old Charlie, and 9-year-old Augusta. “It’s a family house,” says Ali, “and works best as the site of house parties.” With seven bedrooms and five baths in 7,000 square feet, “we can fill it up and everyone runs around. Kids and dogs are welcome.” Built in 1926, the house was the creation of a builder rather than an architect, and it “has a lot of quirks,” she adds, “with passageways and panels that open. In the library, the fun thing is a hidden closet with a pass-through to the guest room”—great for a game of hide and seek. “When we bought it,” Charles remembers, “Ali said we don’t have to do anything except get rid of the 144

trash compactor in the kitchen and the pink tile in our bath. Both are still there, but every couple of months, Ali gets the itch to do a great project.” Indeed, she’s responsible for the decor, with the help of designer friends Kirsten Fisk and Christina Rottman— “great editors,” Ali calls them. “People say the interior is a 3-D biography. It’s an expression of things we love in life,” things that are “layered with story and emotion.” For example, the chinoiserie chest in the foyer “was the first antique we bought when we were young and just married in Atlanta 23 years ago,” says Charles. And the chandelier in the dining room—which combines kudu horns and ostrich eggs—and the giraffe and zebra rugs are pieces the pair brought back from South Africa, where they own three wineries, Mulderbosch, Fable Mountain, and Marvelous Wines. “We love the place,” notes Ali, who’s quick to point out that the animals died in captivity: “We’re not hunters!” A mounted water buffalo head adds a bit of exotica to the dramatic two-story entrance hall, which is a light-filled space with a view toward the mountains. “People walk in and think it’s going to be a dark house, but it’s Y-shaped and the rooms are bright,” says Charles. One particular favorite sunny spot is known as the coffee room. “It’s tiny, with four chairs—perfect for conversation,” says Ali. “Charles and I start our day in that room.” And while there really aren’t formal spaces in the house, the living room, with its lacquered navy blue walls, is where winter dinner parties start and end, with meals served in the dining room. Equally important for entertaining

Navy lacquered walls flank the living room fireplace, one of seven in the house. Opposite : From paintings on the wall to the egg-andhorn chandelier and the giraffe rug underfoot, African accents add singular touches to the dining room.

“Our style of entertaining? Call it Old World. It’s often intergenerational and family style.” —Ali B a nks

is the underground wine cellar, which is “large but not fancy,” notes Ali. “Charles puts the money into the wine, not the room, and it allows us to share wines with our guests.” Although the Banks are involved in 14 different wine businesses, the cellar “is mostly filled not with our wines. It’s important to always be drinking other people’s wines. That’s how we learn.” Of course, much of the year, the focus moves outdoors. “We have a pretty great open yard with views of the ocean and the mountains,” says Charles. “And when you live in Santa Barbara, why not be outside?” adds Ali. There’s a pool, an outdoor fireplace, a movable fire cauldron, and several dining areas. But the key to the couple’s hospitality is really their penchant for mixing guests and making them all feel at home. “Our style of entertaining? Call it Old World,” says Ali. “It’s often intergenerational and family style. We do most things ourselves, and the guests help out. We love to have diverse conversations, and we want a lot of different viewpoints at the table.” The gatherings often include business associates like other winemakers; the Banks’s partners in Mattei’s Tavern; in CLM, which owns restaurants and events in California; and in Terroir, which oversees their wineries as well as Cultivate, a wine enterprise that donates 10 percent of its revenue to community reinvestment. If juggling those enterprises—and a new high-design glassware company called Vessels— seems like an unbelievable feat, well, “It works because we have great partners,” says Ali. “We work from our home, and we’re friends with the people we work with. It’s a delicate balance of art, business, and life, and we try to make that seamless.” n

”I

have vivid childhood memories of going to my great-grandma Francis’s house, pulling up a chair to her table while she walked to the back of her pantry and came out with a mason jar,” says Carla Malloy, reminiscing of things past. “She would twist off the lid, and then I’d hear the unmistakable pop of the canning lid being opened. She would pour out chunky cinnamon applesauce into a bowl and I would dive right in.” It’s this sweet tradition that inspires Malloy’s Gaviota homestead today. Raised by her German-born mother, Karin, who grew up in postwar Berlin, after Karin immigrated to America, “she just continued to do what her mom did,” says Malloy. “She taught me how to knit, sew, cook, bake, and you could always find her in the garden.” After a short career in the surf industry, where she met her husband, the couple moved to his hometown of Ojai in 2004. “We found a 1930s farmhouse on one flat acre next to a creek ” she says. “I planted a small garden before the paint was dry.” That first summer in Ojai she recalls, “our aunt had a very large plum tree. I couldn’t let them go to waste, so without knowing what to do, I went to the store, bought the mason jars I had seen my grandmother use, and made my first batch of jam ” After her two kids were born and she started acquiring pets and animals (they currently have horses, goats, chickens, a cat, and a dog), four years later, the Malloys wanted a change—and more open space— so they packed up and moved to Gaviota. There, she grows a little bit of everything. “Home gardeners should grow something they can continually harvest over the season, like tomatoes, lettuces, and kale,” she says. “If you’re a juicer, plant carrots, beets, and celery. If you’re a canner, plant tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and peppers.” In addition to the strawberry jams and pickled carrots she cans, in autumn, Malloy looks forward to preserving her abundance of tomatoes. “I put up marinara, ketchup, barbecue sauce, tomato jam, and my own V8 juice,” she says. It’s a tradition that’s become a way of life for her. “All my family and girlfriends up here can, and we are always trading with each other and sharing recipes,” she says. “My favorite thing

to do is can with my sister-in-law, Grace. We garden together, kids get to peel apples and pour in the sugar, and we handle the rest, usually talking about what we are going to plant the next season.” n

“ We have figured ou how to can, freeze, and dehydrate all this food. Once you produce your own food, it’s hard to see it go to waste.”

FOOD+WINE | BITS&BITES

Raising the Bar Over the hill in the Santa Ynez Valley, two new tasting rooms call Los Olivos home. Located in the backyard of Mattei’s Tavern, The Watering Hole, 805-688-1341, is a relaxed environment to enjoy local wines such as Sandhi and Qupé while you lounge at the picnic tables or spend an evening by the fire. Small-town charm drew Zinke Wine Co., 805-691-9718, zinkewines.com, owners Michael and Ashley Zinke to Los Olivos. The tasting room—which offers single-vineyard Rhône varietals from the Central Coast—invites customers in and makes them feel like family with its soothing outdoor atmosphere complete with bocce and corn hole. As one of the oldest wineries in the area and the first to plant Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County back in 1971, Sanford Winery & VineyarD continues to expand with its tasting room, 805-770-7873, sanfordwinery .com, located in downtown Santa Barbara’s La Arcada plaza. Further down State Street, El Paseo has become home to three new tasting rooms, bringing the total to six, which are now formally referred to as the Wine Collection of El Paseo. Family owned and operated, Happy Canyon Vineyard, 805-232-3549, happycanyonvineyard .com—best known for its award-winning Bordeaux varietals—also has another location in Santa Barbara inside Chuck’s Waterfront Grill at the harbor. After success with Wine Cask and its first tasting room adjacent to the restaurant, Margerum Wine Company has opened MWC32, 805-845-8435, margerumwinecompany.com, a space to display and show off its collectible and rare wines such as the limited, small-production Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc ($21). A newcomer to the wine world, Jamie Slone Wines, 805-560-6555, jamieslone wines.com, showcases the diversity within Santa Barbara County vineyards. A former professional race car driver and radio broadcasting executive, Slone got into the wine business after falling in love with Santa Barbara and its world-class terroir. After this year’s harvest, the winery plans to add Rhône varietals of Grenache Blanc and a red blend to its portfolio. Down in the Funk Zone, four new tasting rooms have opened their doors. Lafond Winery, 805-845-2020, lafondwinery.com, provides customers not only with excellent wine, but also a rare view into the bottling warehouse to witness the behind-the-scenes action.

The newest hipster haunt to open its doors: Outpost, outpostsb.com, at the new boutique Goleta hotel The Goodland. There, chef Derek Simcik whips up a food-forward, evolving menu of shared dishes such as appetizers (yellowtail crudo with pickled radish, stone fruit, and avocado oil), salads, entrees, and internationally inspired tacos, empanadas, and bao buns. “I’m excited to use all of the great ingredients that are available in this area,” says Simcik. “I want to cook food that’s fun, delicious, and inspired by all of the great cultures in Southern California.” –G.Z.T.

At SAARLOOS & Sons tasting room in Los Olivos, 805-688-1200, saarloosandsons .com, the wines are delicious (I love the Wife Grenache Blanc), and the space is super rad. The people who work there are just downright cool. • Tuesday and Saturday downtown farmers market, sbfarmersmarket .org, is a must. I can pretty much do 100 percent of both restaurant and my personal grocery shopping there. I couldn’t ask for a better selection and quality. • A burger and old fashioned at American Ale, americanale .net. What else needs to be said? • The fish and meat selection at the Santa Barbara Public Market, 805-770-7702, sbpublicmarket .com. The local uni and spot prawns at Santa Monica Seafood are beautiful. And Belcampo Meat Co. offers everything from bacon to bone-in pork chops. Whatever you need, it’s all under one roof. • Tiki Tuesday at the Canary Hotel’s Finch & Fork, 805-879-9100, finchandforkrestaurant.com. It’s like a weekly Hawaiian getaway.

A Taste of Italy A year in the making, the Mediterranean-style Villa Wine Bar and Kitchen recently opened downtown in the Anacapa Villas to offer small bites from 11 am to 9 pm. It’s the second business for Vino Divino wine shop owners Sean and Gabriella Larkins, who “wanted a downtown location off of State Street that would be desirable to locals as well as tourists,” says Gabriella. Inside, the Italian tiled fountain, woodbeamed ceiling, and terra-cotta floors lend an American Riviera feel while the Mediterranean-inspired salads and panini satiate wine and beer lovers alike. Chef Ruan Tomas has created a menu of items such as caprese with buffalo mozzarella, roasted pepper and eggplant salad with goat cheese, arugula topped with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella, and more to go with the Firestone and Figueroa Mountain beers, Goodland and Samsara

EAT + GREET

Celebrate our town’s best Cali cuisine and Euro-style eateries with EPICURE.SB, 805-966-9222, santabarbaraca.com/ epicuresb, the entire month of October. Capitalizing on Santa Barbara’s copious harvest season, warm fall days, and multitude of urbane restaurants, the event gives local gourmands the opportunity to taste and experience our town’s finest gastronomic offerings. Under 2014’s greater theme—epic-Scoop—participating businesses may choose one of three different supporting pillars, wherein their guests can taste an off-the-menu item, take part in a culturally inspired occasion, or enjoy a one-time pop-up event via epic-Dish, epic-Venture, or epic-Gathering. Not much of a restaurant goer? Take your appetite to the street—Carpinteria’s Linden Avenue, that is. A southern Santa Barbara fall mainstay, the CALIFORNIA AVOCADO FESTIVAL, 805-684-0038, avofest.com, October 3 through 5, draws crowds from near and far for its plethora of avo-inspired treats (think World’s Greatest Guacamole Contest and

avocado ice cream), Mexi-Cali eats, and live entertainment, compliments of 75 different bands playing across four stages over the course of the weekend. A true community affair, the foodie fest (admission is free) also doubles as a platform to promote and raise funds for a number of community-based nonprofit and service organizations. Go green, go avo! –ANGELIA DE MEISTRE-HAMMER

THE WAY WE WERE

R oa d to vic to ry, 19 6 8 Republican presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon takes the stage at the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, where he is greeted by a fervent crowd of young, hopeful Americans during the first stop in the California leg of his national campaign tour. Presenting his signature “V” for victory stance, Nixon—who was in his second running after a defeat by John F. Kennedy in 1960—soon claimed the election over democratic opponent Hubert Humphrey and went on to serve as the 37th president of the United States from 1969 to 1974. –M a is ie Zi mm erman
