MY DELICIOUS SUMMER

I

IN HONOR OF OUR JOINT MILESTONE BIRTHDAY this summer, my best friend, Josalyn, and I traveled to Mexico City. Between visiting museums and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, we checked out the coolest food hall – Mercado Roma – where we could (and did) eat everything from patatas bravas to paletas. (I’m so excited that we’ll soon have our own, Blue Dogwood Public Market, here in town with chocolate, Italian baked goods and tamales all under the same roof.) We chased after local specialties from pulque, a fermented milky alcoholic beverage, to the ubiquitous street tacos. We treated ourselves to dinner at one of the world’s best restaurants, Pujol, a meal that reminded me of Fearrington House Restaurant in its attention to detail and creativity. All in all, a delicious trip. It was then fitting that I returned to work on our eighth annual Foodie Issue that’s chockful of stories about tacos, budding foodies and a new cookbook. Then the next day, I left for Iceland for our first family vacation in years. Somewhere over the Atlantic on my flight home from the Nordic nation, I had a pang for Acme’s tomato plate. I had bought a food magazine called “Gestgjafinn” to look at since I could only understand the obvious words like hummus and limoncello. As I flipped through the pages, the juicy tomatoes on skewers and served bruschetta-style caught my eye. I knew I had missed Acme’s annual tomato festival and for a second, I was regretful. Of course, if I had stayed home, I wouldn’t have fallen in love with an Icelandic white ale or had the best French onion soup of my life. Like kid chef Gill Corbett on page 86, who spent the summer in South Korea taking cooking lessons and visiting markets, my travels made me appreciate home even more and expanded my horizons. (Though I wasn’t brave enough to try shark. When something is described as having a smell “reminiscent of rotten cheese mixed with ammonia,” it’s a hard pass.) If you need me, I’ll be staying put for a while, enjoying as many peaches and tomatoes as I can and stretching out the last weeks of summer. CHM

A HUGE HEART The family, friends and teachers of Dhillon Shah, a beloved Montessori Community School student who would have graduated this year, gathered at a ceremony in June to dedicate special “Buddy Benches” on the school playground. Dhillon was born with a severe congenital heart defect and passed away two years ago at 12 years old. The benches are meant to be a refuge for any student who needs someone to play with and are a perfect tribute to the outgoing Dhillon who always looked out for his classmates and kept them laughing.

The Chapel Hill Public Library (CHPL) has gone mobile! The Circulator made its debut at Movies Under the Stars this summer as the first stop to bring books and even crafts, costumes and games to the public. CHPL director Susan Brown says, “On any given day we might take cookbooks to the farmers market or STEAM programs and storytimes to schools and neighborhoods or graphic novels and games to a Comic Con.” The vehicle has bookshelves, a book return and even solar panels on the roof – look for it around town.

John and Wendy Cappelletti in their Briar Chapel restaurant.

THE TRUCK STOPS HERE MY FONDEST FOOD MEMORY is my great-aunt Clotilda, who would make the pilgrimage from Florida every

summer when I was a kid. Being part of a large Italian family, food was central to everything that we did and [every occasion we would] gather around a plate of food. At the time she was in her eighties, and she was quite a lady. She would make pasta or bread or pizza. After she was done, she would pick zucchini flowers and look for the dandelions to pull the green leaves. She was way ahead of her time – fried zucchini flowers in the ’70s! – and she was onto things that would later come to be very trendy. And it’s funny, you don’t realize how things come back to you later down the road in life – the smell of the flour mixing with water, the smell of eggs and pasta, the fresh pasta being made. 34

I grew up in Waterbury, Connecticut, which had [something like] the second highest Italian-immigrant population in the Northeast through the ’80s. And so with that came all of the great food – and just a stone’s throw away from New Haven-style pizza. I really fell in love with the coal-fired pizzas – the flavor, the style. For years, we’d go once a week to get pizza and a beer or two at a place called Richter’s. We got hooked on the pizza, so when we came down here [to North Carolina in 1994], having it was a necessity. I did a lot of reading and taught myself everything I could about making pizza, including crazy stuff like putting the oven in cleaning mode [so the temperature would hit 900 degrees F]. We’d have pizza dinner parties on Sunday nights and we got pretty good at it. People started saying, ‘Oh, you gotta do this, you gotta do this.’ „

I found this mobile wood-fired pizza oven on a trailer, and I was like, ‘Yeah, we could do that.’ I left my job in 2010, and in 2011, we [started] Capp’s Apizza, which was the mobile food unit. We worked farmers markets, music festivals and neighborhoods including Briar Chapel, The Preserve and Fearrington Village. A lot of people from

up North move to Fearrington and they were all like, ‘Oh my God, it’s just like New York pizza, or just like Connecticut.’ We were very fortunate to have that exposure ... one thing led to another and here we are [with a brick and mortar]. Capp’s Pizzeria opened the third week of October [2016]. Somebody got on Nextdoor and

told Briar Chapel that we were open. We had a line down the sidewalk and a packed restaurant for three hours. It was insane, and it was quite an intro to the restaurant world [on the owning side of the business]. [Over the years] my wife, Wendy, and I have worked in a lot of restaurants – that’s how we kind of met. Wendy and I had actually gone to grammar school together, and I’d always say, ‘That MacDermid girl, she’s cute.’ I did a lot of [hospitality] work – bartending jobs, catering jobs, worked in kitchens. Then when we were catering at Westside Lobster House [in Waterbury] after college, Wendy was there on the crew on the first day. We started hanging out together, and we had a lot of the same interests. Getting into the restaurant business is kind of nuts. It’s a lot of hours, it’s a lot of work, but it’s also been very rewarding. That’s the connection that I never really made between my Aunt Clotilda and food and comfort. It’s a really great feeling to put a plate of food in front of somebody, have them enjoy it and say, ‘That was fantastic.’ And I think that’s the reward. That’s music to my ears, that means I’m doing my job and they get it. –as told to Jessica Stringer CHM

We announced in October [2016] that we’re going to be inducted in the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. There’s a lot of good stuff happening, and I want to stay on the course that we’re on. This isn’t your first Chapel Hill performance. In fact, y’all formed in Chapel Hill. Are there spots

It’s Not If But When – High School • Help your high schooler build skills and strategies to resist peer pressure and avoid underage drinking • Consider establishing an “X-Plan” with your high schooler to help them navigate out of situations where underage drinking is present (see reverse side for more information).

With New Beginnings Come New Challenges - College • During the first 6 weeks of college, students are at a higher risk for dangerous drinking. Approximately 12.5% of UNC freshman report drinking alcohol in the summer before college. After the first 6 weeks of their first semester, approximately 75% of UNC freshmen report drinking alcohol. This trend mirrors national statistics among college students. • Set clear expectations about academic performance, financial responsibility, and how underage alcohol use can impact both. • Validate that abstinence from alcohol is a healthy, safe and acceptable decision. • Discuss strategies that your child should use to avoid drinking dangerously, if they choose to drink.

around town that you guys always go back to?

You know one of our very first gigs was at Linda’s Bar & Grill, not that we go back there very often but we have very fond memories of that spot. We go back to Weaver Street Market a lot, and we go to Top of the Hill. We kind of bounce around … we like to walk to campus. I think the best thing that we’ve done besides play at Memorial Hall is we’ve been invited to sing the National Anthem at the Dean Dome three or four times … It’s such an honor to come back to Chapel Hill. We don’t take it lightly that the University has embraced us… Coming back to Memorial Hall is kind of a homecoming for us, so we’re thrilled to do it. –As told to Lauren Wilkinson „

Dutch and Flemish masterworks, with seven of them drawings by Rembrandt van Rijn. Sheldon, an orthodontic specialist, educator and art collector, is a Durham native and UNC alumnus. He and Leena have made previous contributions to the museum and joined the Ackland’s national advisory board in 1987. The Pecks’ generosity also allows the museum to create a new curator position whose work will focus primarily on European and American art before 1950, including the new Peck Collection. With this endowment, the Ackland will be able to acquire additional works of art and continue digitizing and conserving its collection. The outcome of this gift is sure to be long-lasting. In a press release, museum director Katie Ziglar says, “Works of such high achievement and quality will fascinate and delight Ackland visitors for decades to come.” Since the announcement early this year, the

The ArtsCenter, Carrboro’s education center and cultural gathering place, is going on its 43rd year. Started in 1974 by Jacques Menache – now a full-time artist and electrician – he saw a need for art classes and began to offer painting lessons in what was called “The ArtSchool.” Originally housed in Carr Mill Mall, The ArtSchool soon outgrew that space and moved in 1986 to its current location. The ArtsCenter currently has two main performance spaces, several multi-use classrooms, different studios and a public gallery space. With classes, concerts, theatre productions, art shows and more, they’ve got something for everyone. “We are unique in the area in that we do a lot of different things that are not found together in the same building. There are a lot of great venues in town, but there are not a lot of places where so many activities can overlap,” says Patrick Phelps-McKeown, who came on a little over a year ago as marketing director. For many of their programs, they offer scholarships and partner with schools to make sure that anyone interested can have access to their resources. New for The ArtsCenter is the introduction of an official performance season. In the past, there have been mini-series or festivals, but the 2016-2017 season was the first curated series for the whole year. And the center is excited to have an even bigger season for 20172018. Our picks include “Ira Knight Presents: Mandela, An Interpretation” in October, Ranky Tanky in November and Jason Marsalis & the 21st Century Trad Band in January.

THE EBERTS CUSTOMIZED THEIR WESTWOOD HOME TO MAKE IT THEIR OWN

BY MORGAN CARTIER WESTON PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIANA BROUGH

WHEN ANGELA AND SAM Eberts began searching for a home in Chapel Hill,

they knew they needed something special. The pair had been living in a converted cookie factory in Chicago, and weren’t afraid of a renovation – but every home they saw seemed wrong. “We must have looked at a thousand homes before we found this one,” says Angela, senior director of the Duke Futures Program at Duke September/October 2017 chapelhillmagazine.com

The investors had made some major decisions already, but the Eberts family was able to chime in on

features both functional and aesthetic that made it feel like their own. VERDANT VIEWS Originally built in the 1950s, the Westwood home was formerly occupied by the late Dr. Frederick Eldridge, who retired in 1997 after nearly 25 years on the UNC School of Medicine faculty. He and his wife, Mary

yard was bountiful,” says Angela, noting views of the yard from the home’s many windows as one of her favorite features. Evidence of the previous owners’ hard work in the secluded 1-acre lot can be felt in the comforting shade of towering magnolias and traditional hedges, while wire lounge chairs, stone and metal

sculptures and a bubbling water feature modernize the outdoor retreat. Landscaper Jim Flanagan helped the Eberts curate the abundant existing plantings and introduce new ideas. “It’s so peaceful out there,” says Sam, who serves as chief legal officer and senior vice president of corporate affairs at LabCorp. “We feel lucky to be so close and yet able to get away from it all.” „

C’est si Bon! Cooking School every summer while he

attended Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill. “It definitely made me more open to trying new foods and cooking more at home,” he says. Daughter Grace, 15, a sophomore at Trinity School, enjoys baking, and often employs that talent as a Chapel Hill-Carrboro Meals on Wheels volunteer. When they’re not in the kitchen, Jackson can be found bikepacking or hiking (the Haw River is a favorite spot), and Grace spends six days a week dancing at Triangle Youth Ballet. Angela and Sam remain pleasantly surprised by the arts community in the area, and frequent PlayMakers Repertory Company, DPAC and Silverspot for entertainment yearround, as well as Durham’s annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and American Dance Festival. “I always said we’d move back to Chicago one day, but now, I’m not so sure,” Angela laughs.

his summer, Midway Community Kitchen offered cooking camps for budding foodies in town. We caught up with a few campers as they cooked their way through Asia.

Sanze, 6 ON LEARNING HOW TO COOK We have a paper with all

the ingredients. We get to know how to make it and mix all the ingredients together. NEW FAVORITE I hadn’t heard of samosas before but I like them now. ALL-TIME FAVORITE FOOD Chocolate cake.

Eva Choe, 9 FAVORITE THING LEARNED AT CAMP

Maybe cutting because before I never got to use one of those really big sharp knives. At camp I learned how to use it. FAVORITE FOOD I really like sushi. And mango and mochi. I really like Japanese food.

Anya Kallepalli, 8 TAKEAWAYS I only cooked a little bit

at home before because I thought it wouldn’t be fun, but now that I came here, it seems more fun. Since my family’s Indian and we have samosas, I might start helping with those. LESSONS LEARNED We know how to carry the knives when we’re walking and we always have to use oven mitts when near the stove.

Matteo Chi, 7 LESSON LEARNED

Now I know how to chop with a knife. FAVORITE PART ABOUT COOKING

Using the stove. My mom and dad don’t let me do that at home. FAVORITE FOOD Macaroni and cheese.

Mirabelle Chi, 9 COOKING AT HOME I help my

grandmother with cookies or brownies. Two days ago I made chocolate chip cookies with walnuts. That time I actually made them myself. SWEET TREATS We made a semolina cake in camp. It turned out good except we forgot to add almond.

his summer, folks living near Cedar Falls Park could buy fruits and vegetables during a pop-up farmers market on Sunday afternoons and they had a 12-year-old to thank for it. Marin Lissy, a seventh-grader, dreamed up the market a year ago when answering an essay contest prompt looking for ideas to help increase access to healthy food. Her essay – that included an idea for a fundraising cookbook for Farmer Foodshare – won out and her suggestion became Produce for Parks in July. “I [thought] about a mobile farmstand because a park in my community was getting a lot of use. I had seen a sno-cone truck go through there and being a kid, I was interested in that,” Marin recalls. “Then I started thinking, ‘Well, if there’s a sno-cone truck, why can’t we have fresh produce?’” Her efforts were supported by the Town of Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation and funded by the Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties. She reached out to farmers and brought on

Minka Farm, Jimmy Acres Farm and the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market, which had a selection of excess produce from their Saturday market. As for her impact on the community, Marin says, “I’d really like to see some family going to the park and not necessarily expecting a farmers market. They might play a little bit, buy some fresh food, go home and make a really yummy dinner. That just makes me smile – thinking about how this could impact people.”

espite only being 5 years old, Hannah Joshi has already gotten a taste of helping out the community through PORCH. When she was in preschool, Hannah rode along with her mom, Kelly, a neighborhood coordinator for the organization that collects and distributes food to families in need. “They make bags and they leave them on their porch,” Hannah says of her neighbors’ contributions she and her mom pick up and bring to a central sorting location. In the summer, older siblings, Neil, 11, and Siena, 8, can help out too and they’ve got their own roles. Neil carries donated items from the volunteers’ trunks inside and Siena sorts through the snack items with her sister. In addition to PORCH, the siblings also have worked with the Town of Chapel Hill’s Food for the Summer (FFTS) program. After the lunches are delivered, Hannah says they can stick around and play with the other kids. “Sometimes we draw or jump rope,” Hannah says. “Sometimes we can read to them.” Their involvement in the programs gives them a unique view on making a difference. “I think most people often think of volunteering as a chore or something you have to be doing, while PORCH and Food for the Summer are an enjoyment,” says Neil, who also served as a swim teacher through the YMCA’s Swim for Life program in the afternoons. When the kids aren’t out with their mom, you might find them at the table enjoying an Indian dish like dal dhokli or khichdi from their grandmother who lives with the family half of the year. Or they might be baking – the kids’ food allergies mean avoiding dairy and eggs – and a vegan banana bread is a favorite. It’s a crowdpleaser in part because they all get to “lick the bowl!”

ost chefs twice or three times Gill Corbett’s age haven’t accomplished nearly what the kid chef has at age 11. Already, he’s appeared on a Food Network show, raised money for food nonprofits and written a book. This summer his family spent time in Seoul, South Korea, thanks to his dad’s work trip, and Gill took cooking and language classes and visited local markets. Immersed in the culture, he learned about traditional cooking where the chef cooks directly over ashes and developed an affinity for bulgogi, a dish with shredded beef and vegetables. Gill got started at age 3 as he tended to the two family gardens. “One giant garden has everything: radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, okra – and then I had an herb garden with basil, oregano, parsley,” Gill says. Lessons in the kitchen were picked up as he helped as his family’s sous chef cutting up vegetables and putting ingredients in the pot for meals and soaked up anything he could from watching the Food Network. When the opportunity arose to audition for the “Kids BBQ Championship,” Gill made surf and turf for his Skype interview. He flew out to California to compete against three other kids and would rather you catch the episode that aired in June – available to download on Amazon – than reveal how he fared. “They give you the dish and you make it your own,” Gill recalls. “Then you walk over to the pantry to pick ingredients to make your signature sauce.” Returning home from his TV experience, he penned a book called “Gill on the Grill” and raised funds for TABLE and No Kid Hungry like the high-profile chefs he admires. As for the future, Gill is learning how to help fight global hunger like one of his charitable role models. “I do like Guy Fieri and all the restaurants he goes to,” Gill says. “He always wants to try something new.” CHM

for almost a decade,” she says of “The Farmhouse Chef” due out this month. “As life evolved and the farm grew and the businesses grew, people were constantly asking me to share recipes or teach cooking classes.” All those years of cooking and entertaining yielded a gracious plenty of recipes Jamie knew she had to put in one

place. “For me, cooking is a very joyous thing – it lets me take things that I’ve raised and turn them into things that are going to nourish my friends and my family,” she says. Inspired by ingredients grown or raised on their 55 acres of farmland, Jamie divided the recipes up by season, starting with summer. “You’re barely even cooking

[in this season] – you’re just pulling delicious vegetables from the garden and who doesn’t love to do that.” Even the recipes from the other times of the year are meant to be approachable. “They should all be things that you can make after you’ve had a long day at work, picked the kid up from soccer and gotten home.” Their kids, David, 26, Josh, 25, Matthew, 23, and Rachel, 21, are all local and drop by to enjoy a weekend dinner or restock their freezers on a weeknight.

In an age of convenience when cooking – whether it’s a pre-bagged salad or frozen vegetables – Jamie says she is hoping for a return to thoughtful meals made of just-picked produce and sustainably raised meat. “If you’re using fresh ingredients you don’t need hours to make them taste good. They are going to shine with very little effort on your part,” she says. “I hope this cookbook gets people back to using fresh and local ingredients. I hope it brings people together at the table to share life in a happy way.” „

Sage Butter Pork Tenderloin

“O

ur butcher calls pork tenderloins the pig’s “catfish.” It took me several visits to figure out what he was talking about, but a fresh-cut heritage breed pork tenderloin looks exactly like a catfish fillet – fat at one end and skinny and pointy at the other. That makes it a piece of meat to cook for a crowd. Folks who want theirs rare can have a slice from the fat end, and the well-done crew gets the tail end. This recipe adapts well, so get multiple tenderloins if you’re feeding a crowd and adjust amounts accordingly,” says Jamie. Makes 4–6 servings 1 whole pork tenderloin (about 1  ½ pounds) 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled 1 tsp. dried sage Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste 1 Tbsp. olive oil 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 450°. In a shallow bowl pour the melted butter over the pork tenderloin. Sprinkle the tenderloin with the sage, salt, and pepper and set aside. In a medium cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and garlic and sauté for 1 minute, stirring to keep the garlic from sticking. Add the tenderloin to the pan and turn regularly to sear evenly on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Transfer the skillet to the hot oven and continue cooking for 10-15 additional minutes. The internal temperature at the center should be 145°. Remove it from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. Slice and serve immediately.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Cinnamon Butter and Shallots

“F

all squash like pumpkins, acorn squash, and butternuts are storage crops, so they keep at room temperature for months. They’re usually pretty, so I sit them around as decoration, until I want to use one. Leftovers can be puréed and added to chicken stock for soup or diced up and served cold as a salad ingredient. This recipe offers a very basic way to cook butternuts. Feel free to add all kinds of herbs and flavorings to make it your own,” says Jamie. Makes 4–6 servings

The Place to Be!

1 butternut squash 1 tsp. olive oil 1 large shallot, finely chopped 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Preheat the oven to 400°. Spread the olive oil evenly on the bottom of the baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to slice off the ends of the butternut squash and then slice the squash in half. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds (save them for roasting later). Slice the squash in 1-inch-thick slices, and arrange them with the skin side down on the oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle the shallots on top of the butternut squash. Drizzle the melted butter over the squash and shallots. Finally, sprinkle cinnamon, salt and pepper over everything, and toss it all to coat, making sure again that the squash end up skin side down. Place the pan in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Flip the slices to ensure even baking. Put the pan back in the oven to continue baking for 10-20 more minutes. The squash is done when it’s fork-tender. Remove from the oven and serve. „

ike falling leavings and autumn bonfires, our drink this fall spotlights a warm, aromatic pairing: whiskey and sage. We love finding new ways to use these iconic, complementary flavors. The addition of foamy egg white makes this mix a little unusual, giving it a silky texture. (Use pasteurized carton egg whites found in your local dairy section.) The result is reminiscent of the 1920s when so many classic whiskey cocktails were born. Yet, the layering of sage makes it thoroughly modern and completely indulgent to the senses. Get your taste buds ready for this soothing, smooth flavor. SAGE ADVICE 2 oz. TOPO Organic Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey 1 oz. Grapefruit Juice 1/2 oz. Lime Juice 1/4 oz Agave Syrup 3 tbsp Pasteurized Egg White (one egg’s worth) 3 drops of bitters Fresh Sage leaf

A SOFT, AROMATIC SAGE LEAVE FLOATS ON TOP OF THIS DRINK, MAKING IT SMELL AS WONDERFUL AS IT TASTES.

Combine whiskey, grapefruit, lime, agave and egg white in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until very cold, about 20 seconds. Do not overshake. The mixture will be foamy and light.

Pour mix into a martini or a coupe glass. Place the fresh sage leaf in the palm of your hand and “spank” it to once bring out the oils. Float the sage leaf and three small dots of bitters on the top. Drag a toothpick across the bitters dots to make a flower.

Enjoy this mix with either TOPO Organic Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey, or our newest family member, TOPO Organic 2017 Reserve Carolina Whiskey– an incomparable barrel-aged whiskey only available through our limited release this fall. –Esteban McMahan, TOPO Spirit Guide

Moroccan On My Mind

What started as a passing experiment for Janet Elbetri of Sandwhich one Saturday morning in 2015 with an impulse-bought press turned into team-building tortilla madness. The delicious result sold out that first day in an hour and a half and has been a solid special ever since. The Moroccan influence of their tacos comes from Janet’s original business partner, Hich Elbetri. “We put our heads together when we developed the menu nearly 13 years ago, and so the menu has always been a nice MoroccanAmerican-eclectic combo of things,” Janet says. When Sandwhich started making tortillas in house, it was only natural to spice the pork shoulder, chicken or roasted butternut squash as Hich would. Since the start, tuna salad tacos and brunchy tacos have also been added to their repertoire. „

For a bite that “is nutty, a little sweet, with a pop of bold flavor from the red curry,” look no further than one of executive editor Jessica Stringer’s favorites: the butternut squash red curry tacos at Lucha Tigre consisting of pureed butternut squash and red curry, topped with a crema drizzle, radish and cilantro. “It fits perfectly with our fusion concept of an Asian flavor (red curry) paired with a veggie into a taco,” says managing partner Khoa Dinh.

A Seasoned Favorite

For the last 20 years, if you were craving tacos, you’ve likely been sent to Carrburritos. I’m a fan of the carnitas variety – slowroasted pork made tastier with beer and garlic, then shredded lean. “We’re originally from California,” owners Gail and Bill Fairbanks say, “where emphasis on fresh food made daily was a big deal. Everything we do [at Carrburritos] is made every day.”

Taco the Town

As fast as bartaco at University Place popped up, it was filled with customers who had heard about or tried their famed varieties in places like Asheville or New York. Chapel Hill’s menu features everything from fresh-juice cocktails to fruit skewers for the kiddos, but it is mainly separated between “tacos” and “not tacos.” My interest was piqued by the sesame ribeye, fried oyster and duck tacos, but dynamic flavors can be found elsewhere, too, in offerings like tuna poke and mushroom mole tamales.

tacos to go Moveable feasts

Carrboro is blessed with a bounty of all types of food trucks, and one of the longestrunning and most beloved is the pair of taco trucks collectively known as Latin Grill. In business for a decade now, the two chefs split the week at the Fitch Lumber parking lot on North Greensboro Street. (They’ve expanded, addressing the frequent complaint on the mostly 5-star Yelp reviews of past years: that the truck wasn’t open nightly.) Latin Grill has a dedicated clientele of both walk-up and drive-up customers. A couple of evenings a month, either my husband or I will ask the other, “truck tacos?” Then we’ll walk the few blocks from our house and place our order. (It’s usually a taco each, and sometimes guac or rice and beans to share – but everything we’ve tried is delicious.) We fill up a to-go container or two of the creamy verde salsa and carry it all home to enjoy with a couple of beers. And sometimes, if we’re feeling fancy, we even transfer some of the food to our own plates. –Sarah Arneson

From a traditional Latin ceviche to shrimp and grits to, of course, lots and lots of tacos, there is something for everyone. Come for the signature guacamole prepared tableside so guests can customize the flavors to their liking. As of press time, Babalu was set to open early fall. –Tia Nanjappan

If you’re looking for something glutenfree, Atlas Taco Bar is the place for you! Acme Food and Beverage Co.’s owner Kevin Callaghan is opening this taco bar at South Green, a new shopping center expected to be finished in Carrboro in late 2018. Encompassing the same lively energy as Acme, the taco bar will also use only locally sourced ingredients to embody the fresh flavors inherent on Acme’s menu. “I really look forward to creating the team that will launch Atlas,” says Kevin. While there is no tentative opening date as of yet, this is one to add to your list. –Tia Nanjappan CHM

Transplanting Traditions provides refugees with a comforting link to home

W

hen refugees began arriving in Chapel Hill from Myanmar around 2007, they struggled to cook unfamiliar American vegetables and hungered for traditional foods that would keep them culturally connected. Families who continue to arrive from Burma are just as eager to access familiar foods. But today, they know where to find them. The Transplanting Traditions Community Farm, founded in 2009, grows close to 80,000 pounds of food a year, including more than 40 traditional Asian herbs and vegetables: Studded yellow bitter melons, lime leaves and lemon grass, pretty pink shunkyo radishes and orange-middled turmeric. To the 36 refugee families growing food here and many more who enjoy the produce, being able to cook traditional crops into their version of “soul food” is emotionally and spiritually fulfilling. “Folks have been through a lot in leaving their countries, living in the camps, getting resettled. There’s a strong desire for community connectedness and cultural cohesion,” says Kelly Owensby, Transplanting Traditions’ project director. “The farm is a space where they feel they’re back home.” Refugees transform farm produce into traditional soup, thick with turkey and vegetables. Or pennywort salad, a mix of vitamin-rich pennywort leaves, tomatoes, onions, lime, garlic, roasted peanuts and a CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT Cingh Neam, a Chin farmer from Burma harvests sugar-lime fish sauce. Malabar spinach; project director Kelly Owensby; Jular bags vegetables for the CSA with her great-grandson, Sermoeyela Wei. “There seems to be this idea of traditional food being filling in a way that is not just about feeling full,” Kelly says. Packed into boxes for 140 CSA members and sold at farmers markets, the produce is an important source of income for the growers. But the farm also provides invaluable psychosocial support for refugees who can sometimes feel isolated, and a sense of well-being to those farmers who also work long shifts at multiple jobs. “They work 24/7,” says 17-year-old Tatha Hso of his parents as he blends pennywort leaves into juice for a demo at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. “The experience to be able to relax, get some fresh air and farm – it’s like a passion for them.” “At school we learn about what culture means and food always comes up,” Tatha says. “Food is the background of any culture. It shows who you are.” –Jennifer Brookland „ September/October 2017 chapelhillmagazine.com

For formerly incarcerated women, farm life serves as a stable transition

n the barn at Benevolence Farm, Brooke Mann is sorting Sun Gold cherry tomatoes into pint baskets. “I sowed and planted them, and now I’m picking them,” she says. “I didn’t used to like tomatoes, but I eat them now.” To her right is a big stack of cardboard boxes waiting to be filled with cucumbers, shishito peppers, squash, green beans and the tomatoes. Later in the day, Brooke and others will drop them off in Chapel Hill, Burlington and Durham for CSA customers who’ve signed up to receive the farm’s vegetables. Brooke, 33, is the field manager here; her job is to make sure the plants are thriving. She’s also a former inmate of the N.C. Correctional Institution for Women in Raleigh, and this farm, located just west of Chapel Hill in Graham, is her first stop as she transitions back to regular life. Helping Brooke and women like her find their footing is Benevolence Farm’s mission: it’s a place where they can live and be supported as they map out their next 108

steps. “We’re using our collective resources to connect them with their goals,” explains executive director Elly Goetz. “Every resident has different needs.” While they figure out their plans, the women work on the farm, taking on roles like greenhouse manager or packhouse manager that give them some responsibility over the two-acre farm’s output. Those jobs are necessary, but they’re also therapeutic. Getting out of prison can be disorienting, says farm manager Matt Ballard, and feeling needed can counter that. “That way, the women don’t feel lost,” he says. Benevolence Farm is still very young; the first vegetables were planted last year, and the first residents arrived in December. Currently, only two women are living in the house on the property, which can sleep up to six; the farm’s staff members plan to bring more in gradually. Meanwhile, a big swath of land was recently cleared that will practically double the farm’s production; Matt says they’ll begin seeding it with fall crops. Brooke is moving forward too: she recently got a job working at a local domestic violence shelter, taking her first steps toward real independence. But she’s still working on the farm on a daily basis, looking after the plants as she herself grows stronger. This place, she says, “gives me a chance to breathe. And it’s something to get me up and going again.” –Amanda Abrams

The Carrboro nonprofit tackles childhood hunger while educating and expanding palates

T

he average seven-year-old doesn’t usually dream of sinking her teeth into a fresh radish or gooseberry. But for hundreds of kids served by TABLE each year, the food they receive isn’t just a way to fill their tummies, but a way to expand their minds. “Food insecurity can be missing meals, but it can also be not having consistent access to healthy foods,” says executive director Ashton Tippins. “That can really shape their food tastes.” TABLE’s bread and butter is making sure kids have healthy food to eat on weekends and during the summer, when school lunch programs stop and kids are left vulnerable to hunger and poor nutrition. Pallets of peanut butter, Annie’s organic mac and cheese, fruit cups and other food donations pour in from Weaver Street Market, just a few blocks away from TABLE’s new, nearly 2,000-square-foot space in Carrboro, and from Durham’s Farmer Foodshare, UNC Newman Catholic Student Center and various community businesses. TABLE expects to bring nutritious food to 650 food-insecure kids this coming school year. To reshape their palates and show them what’s possible, TABLE also takes kids on field trips to nearby farms and dairies and invites little ones to inventive programs like SnackChef. There, they learn to make nutritious snacks with ingredients they may have never tried before, like pineapple, feta cheese or pomegranate seeds. Of course, the kids enjoy cooking on their own terms. Like the girl learning to make “ripped roll-ups” who chucked the directions and stuffed the whole-grain tortilla, cheese, arugula and mustard inside a sweet red pepper, grinning as she took a giant bite. A 2016 survey of participating families showed kids involved in SnackChef were more willing to try healthy food and also ate healthier. Now in its tenth year, TABLE continues to add programming including Camp TABLE, a summer camp for other budding Chapel Hill foodies who learn about nutrition and food issues and spend time volunteering to bag food for their friends and classmates. –Jennifer Brookland CHM September/October 2017 chapelhillmagazine.com

PAULA GILLAND DOESN’T HAVE TO VISIT her son Taylor in California to get an acai bowl anymore. “We were out visiting him in San Francisco and I had one and it was delicious,” she recalls. “I said, ‘We’ve got to get this in Chapel Hill. I can’t believe we don’t have this [there].’” Led by Taylor, the family opened The Purple Bowl in July and now Paula can get her fix on West Franklin Street, just a few miles from home. For those unacquainted with acai bowls, think of it as a smoothie you eat with a spoon. Made from a base of unsweetened acai, strawberries, bananas and hemp milk, the bowls are topped with fruit, bee pollen and chia seeds, making them a treat for the eyes too. Customers can customize their bowls or order offerings like avocado toast, Japanese-style iced coffee and fresh coconut. Taylor, who holds a double major in commerce and economics 110

from UVA, will serve as the main owner from California but thankfully has plenty of reinforcements in Chapel Hill. “It’s actually been a whole family adventure,” Paula says. “It’s just been kind of a fun side project where we’ve all pitched in and worked on it together.” Daughter Laura is in PA School at Duke, husband Wendell is a professor at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and son Kevin just followed his brother cross-country to start at Berkeley. In their first few weeks of service, Taylor says the reception has been welcoming. “[It’s] really cool to see all the different people from the Chapel Hill community coming in and giving it a try. We have UNC athletes, Carrboro people, old people, country people, high school kids and families all coming in,” Taylor says. “[I] hope it can be a melting pot of our unique community where students and townspeople meet.” CHM

AMONG MY FAMILY and friends and even our two dogs, Lola and Cooper, I’m known for my baking. Each evening when my husband and I are relaxing after putting the baby to bed, Lola (the brown one) starts “singing” and pawing at me. Cooper then joins in, tilting his head to ask if it is indeed time for biscuits. Not only have they learned that I’m the one who gives treats, but they also know they can convince me to whip up a batch from scratch if we’re all out. They haven’t quite figured out that they have to wait to eat them from when they first smell the peanut butter in the recipe until the timer goes off, signaling they’re done in the oven. You’re probably wondering why anyone would make homemade dog cookies when you can buy so many brands in the store. I mean, really, you can even buy treats that are a higher quality than a lot of human food. I bake my own for a few reasons. One rationale is that I enjoy figuring out how to make everyday items into a homemade version that is better than a purchased one. I also like to know what the ingredients are so that I know what comes out of our kitchen and how I can substitute ingredients if necessary. Our little guy Cooper has special dietary needs, which is fairly common in both boxers and

Boston terriers (he’s half of each). After trying many foods and treats and finding that he can tolerate this recipe, we decided to not disrupt his very sensitive digestive tract and just bake biscuits ourselves. While these are all pretty great reasons, the primary reason for homemade dog biscuits is because I love our furry children and it brings me joy to see them happy. I’m a huge fan of spending time in the kitchen for those I love. This recipe can easily be doubled and frozen, which we often do. It is gluten- and dairy-free as well if your dog, like ours, has jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon. CHM

Jackson’s Smart Farm Suddenly there was a demand for more unfamiliar produce: leeks, artichokes, eggplant, asparagus, raspberries, tiny new potatoes, fresh herbs and edible flowers. Enter Tom Jackson, a former English professor descended from generations of Sampson County tobacco farmers. By this time, the N.C. tobacco industry was on the decline and, along with most tobacco farmers in the area, Tom’s father was struggling to survive. Tom, aware of Triangle chefs’ craving for more varied produce, introduced the idea of replanting the old tobacco fields to supply quality produce-oriented restaurants. Under Tom’s guidance, Sampson County farmers began meeting the demand. Every week Tom made the rounds between Nana’s, Four Square, The Carolina Inn, La Residence and Crook’s Corner delivering his and his neighbors’ produce and taking orders for next week’s seasonal specials. Three decades later, Tom and his wife, Jan, a potter and accomplished cook, still live on the 200-year-old family farm

where Jan maintains a potting studio. Tucked into the woods on the edge of their pastoral paradise is an old twobedroom guest house, lovingly restored with a screen porch overlooking a small lake. The verdant Sampson County farmland feels like another universe, peaceful and unchanging. The hospitable Jacksons rent out their enchanting guesthouse – the perfect place to commune with nature, meditate, hang out with old friends or a new love… or to write a cooking column. For information about the Jackson Farm Guest House, go to jacksonfarm.com

Jan Jackson’s Zucchini Pie 3 large eggs ½ cup olive oil 1 cup Bisquick 4 cups diced zucchini 1 chopped onion, preferably Vidalia 1-2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped ½ cup grated Parmesan or cheddar cheese 1 teaspoon fresh marjoram or oregano ¼ teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 1-4 teaspoons chopped parsley (optional) PHOTO BY JAMES STEFIUK

Before the Carrboro Farmers’ Market opened in 1977 and way before “farm to fork” dining was taken for granted here, fresh local veggies were not so easy to come by. Back in the day, our best source was Fowler’s Food Store, a stone’s throw from the more pedestrian A&P downtown on Franklin Street. Fowler’s offered an admirable selection of produce (along with superior meats, exotic beers and shockingly unfamiliar canned goods such as escargots). During the growing season, a couple of farm stands appeared one day each week. The original Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market set up behind Brady’s Restaurant where The Siena Hotel now stands; the other, in back of the current Pantana Bob’s on East Rosemary. These pop-up markets offered typical Southern staples – yellow squash, green beans, shell peas, okra, tomatoes and cucumbers. Julia Child’s revolutionary TV show and a young generation of innovative chefs created a demand for cooking and eating outside the traditional Southern box.

Whisk together the eggs and oil until well blended. Mix in Bisquick, then add the remaining ingredients and pour into a buttered 10- x 6-inch or 8- x 8-inch pan. Bake 35 minutes at 350 F or until golden brown. Variations: Add diced ham, cooked bacon pieces or other suitably flavored diced meat or shrimp, Swiss or mozzarella cheese. CHM

MIXTER & GRIBBON BY ZOE PHARO PHOTOGRAPHY BY KATE HARRISON KATEHARRISONPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

S

E N G A G E M E N T

Sarah Mixter and Brian Gribbon didn’t meet until their junior year

at UNC, when they both worked as student ushers with Carolina Performing Arts. Little did they know that the first shift they worked together would turn into many more shared moments. Brian asked Sarah on a date to Bub O’Malley’s the fall of their senior year, and their shared love of breweries continues to send them all over the country. When Sarah and Brian planned a road trip to visit his family, they decided to stop for a night in Asheville. When they left to eat breakfast, Brian knelt to “tie his shoe,” but disregarded his laces as he surprised Sarah by proposing. The couple spent a beautiful day exploring Asheville and as loyal Tar Heels, they planned to watch the UNC Sweet 16 game that evening. Brian surprised Sarah yet again when he arranged for her family to come celebrate with them. The wedding will be held March 24, 2018 at The Parlour at Manns Chapel. The couple currently lives in Chapel Hill with their dog, Gus. CHM

PETERSEN & WOLF

M S BY TIA NANJAPPAN PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEFF TESNEY JEFFTESNEYPHOTO.COM

Margaret Petersen and East Chapel Hill High grad John Wolf met

while attending UNC School of Law, but they bonded over their love for their dogs, Beretta and Wendell. Under the pretext of celebrating their move into a new home together, the couple went to dinner at the Angus Barn where John surprised Margaret by proposing. The couple was married in Margaret’s hometown of Mobile, Alabama, with a beautiful ceremony at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Margaret contemplated having a “first look” before the ceremony, but ultimately decided against it, concluding that John’s expression when seeing her for the first time while walking down the aisle was more than worth it. Despite being surrounded by family like Debi and Bill Wolf, Kathryn and Owen Drey and Bendt Petersen, Margaret and John felt like they were the only ones in the room during the ceremony. “From the moment Margaret walked through the doors in the church, we were both somewhere between tears and laughter for the duration,” says John. Groomsmen Grant Gibson, Graham Kawula, Daniel Bell, Ryan Pasquini and Noel Myers along with bridesmaid Cara Wolf and reader Sheldon Schenck also joined the happy couple on their joyous day. Margaret works in Corporate Transactions in Denver, NC, while John will practice construction litigation in Durham. The couple resides in The Oaks along with their pups. CHM

BY ZOE PHARO PHOTOGRAPHY BY HEBA SAL AMA HEBASAL AMA.COM

Stephen Rayfield and Jared “Jay” Bates made last-minute plans for

their first date on Thanksgiving Eve nearly three years ago. That date would turn into many more shared moments over the next few years. At Jay’s own birthday party at the couple’s home in Chapel Hill, Jay surprised Stephen by proposing, and the festivities turned into one of the most memorable nights of their lives. This spring, a rainy forecast for Memorial Day weekend gave way to a perfect day, and the couple was married under clear Carolina blue skies with a wedding on the Governors Club golf course. Friends traveled from as far away as the Middle East to celebrate the special day with Stephen and Jay. The ceremony concluded with bluegrass music from Big Fat Gap during the cocktail hour, bourbon and wine barrels and Carolina blue rocking chairs. The bourbon- and bow tiethemed wedding blended evening formality and Southern charm, a nod to Stephen’s roots. After the wedding, the couple honeymooned on the other side of the world, splitting two weeks in Australia and Bali, Indonesia, where they saw the rainforest and dove the Great Barrier Reef before heading to the beaches of Bali and exploring temples. They wrapped up their adventures in Hong Kong and returned home, where their stateside adventure is just beginning. The couple resides in Chapel Hill. Stephen is a teacher at McDougle Middle School and Jay is the Senior Business Director for North America at ALK-Abelló. CHM

SMITH & FOX

J

BY LORA GRIFFITHS PHOTOGRAPHY BY KRYSTAL KAST KRYSTALKASTPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

Julia Smith and Carl Fox found each other on Match.com. Early

in their courtship, doctors diagnosed Carl with myelodysplastic syndrome, a deadly blood cancer. Carl and Julia created Save the Fox, a nonprofit to raise awareness of the disease, and after a long wait he received a bone marrow transplant at UNC Medical Center in 2015. During a trip to visit Julia’s family in Arkansas in 2016, Carl bought a ring and carried it around for months, waiting for the perfect moment. After getting her father’s blessing, Carl took Julia to Glasshalfull where they had their first date. When the tables were too close together to get down on one knee, Carl proposed the next evening during the Democratic National Convention speeches, something Julia says was “perfect!” They were married on May 5, 2017 at the Church of the Holy Family with Julia’s father walking her down the aisle. Her daughter, Susan Smith, was her maid of honor and Antoine Puech was Carl’s best man. Julia also included her late mother in the ceremony – the sleeve of her mother’s 1954 wedding dress was used to wrap her bouquet. Memories of Julia’s mother were present at the reception at The Barn at Fearrington, too. The pair would brunch together at Fearrington Village where her mother would always buy a grapevine ball with lights from Dovecote Style. For the occasion, the barn was transformed into a night garden with white lights, greenery and hydrangea and the band Liquid Pleasure kept everyone dancing. It was truly a day of celebrating family, friends, life and love. CHM
