FIRST TOOTH FIRST BIRTHDAY FIRST DENTAL VISIT

Making the old – new BY DAN DICKSON

T

hey were built primarily between 1920 and the early 1930s, from the blossoming of the “roaring 20s” into the throes of the Great Depression. Chevy Chase homes, many constructed on relatively modest-sized lots by today’s standards, ran the styling chart from Bungalow, Dutch Colonial and Tudor Revival to Foursquare, Craftsman, Cape Cod and more. Historians describe the neighborhood in which they were built as an example of an early automobile suburb. In their day, these homes were considered solid, affordable and modest; today, they make up one of the most charming and coveted neighborhoods in Lexington. Nearly a century after many of the homes were erected, modern Chevy Chase homeowners keep the area desirable to potential buyers, say realtors. They do this by maintaining and respecting the historical charms of the neighborhood, even when updating the homes to meet contemporary demands. “The McMansion thing –– that era has come and gone. People now are smarter about what will last forever and have historical reference,” said Deborah Back, a realtor for Milestone Realty Consultants who has sold many Chevy Chase homes. Graham Pohl, a principal at Pohl Rosa Pohl Architectural Design in Lexington and a Hanover Avenue resident, says there were totally different expectations for homebuilding when the neighborhood was new. “In general, the size of homes has steadily increased since 1970,” he said. “Average square footage has ballooned, unfortunately.” Pohl advocates returning to “what we need” in homes, not buying big just because we can afford it. But as charming as Chevy Chase houses are, today’s homeowners want updated features, such as open living space; bigger, modern kitchens; larger bathrooms and closets and more storage. That means reconfiguring original home spaces or building additions. Kitchens in Chevy Chase were built when size wasn’t important –– though the kitchen is often now the central focus of a home, they were often given “short shrift” in the ’20s and ’30s, said Pohl. “Today, the kitchen is where everyone gathers. When you entertain, people migrate there,” said Pohl. “You have to find ways to reinvent the way a house is used. You can move the kitchen into a different place or leave it where it is and knock down walls and install new windows.” Susie Rodes, broker for Prudential A. S. de Movellan Real Estate, agrees that more and more new homeowners in the neighborhood are looking for modern, open floor plans. “Combining rooms is big, like having kitchens open to living areas,” she said. “Even though Chevy Chase residents love their older neighborhood, they want open and less formal rooms in the homes.” Homes in the “early automobile suburb” of Chevy Chase can provide the perfect palette for remodels accommodating contemporary lifestyles, yet maintaining historic integrity and charm.

Rodes added that modern homeowners also want good storage space, which can be a challenge in these old homes. Bedroom space issues include fitting king-sized beds into smaller bedrooms that were built before larger beds became popular. One common response to this concern is to combine two bedrooms into a master suite with big closet space. In the 1920s, wardrobes weren’t nearly as extensive as they are today, so closet space was minimal. Closets matter today. To expand closet space in an old house, bedroom space is often sacrificed. “I have clients who filled two bedrooms with closets,” Pohl recalled. Brad Hawkins, owner of Dudley Road Bungalows, acquires, renovates and sells Arts & Crafts and Mission-style bungalows in Chevy Chase and adjoining historic neighborhoods. He concentrates on “not so big houses,” working with existing spaces. “I try to focus on what you’ve already got to create better space without building additions.” Depending on the structure, Hawkins says old wiring and plumbing are the biggest challenges with remodels. Building codes drive a lot of decisions. It takes creativity and good planning to succeed. Back says there are two types of buyers in Chevy Chase –– those who have renovated before and are onboard with unexpected problems; and those who might have great plans for changing the kitchen and gutting the bathrooms, but upon looking more closely at the old infrastructure, find it costs much more than they were prepared for. Oh yes –– the costs. Pohl says many who come to him for design work grossly underestimate renovation costs. “HGTV [the TV network] makes people think things are half the cost of what they really are. The numbers they throw out are absolute nonsense,” he said. The investment is a worthy one, according to Hawkins, who says homeowners have a responsibility to be caretakers of historical homes. “It’s our obligation to maintain, enhance and make them better for later generations,” he said. “Maybe in 80 or 90 years, another reporter will talk to a guy about homes built in the 1920s, and how well they’ve been maintained. over the years.” cc

Great kitchens of the Bluegrass

From country to contemporary, traditional to timeless, these local kitchens inspire more than great cuisine

T

oday’s kitchens are far more than a place to store and prepare food –– they are the heart of the home, designed as much for comfort and style as for function. The modern kitchen is an open space that spills into adjoining rooms and accommodates large groups. No longer hidden behind doors and walls, it is the place to entertain; prepare and serve food; work; and spend time with family. The kitchen is the new living room. On the following pages, we offer you a glimpse into a few of Lexington’s finest kitchens. Feast your eyes, imagine the possibilities, borrow ideas, and be inspired.

A Historic Kitchen Made New

DESIGNER: CRAIG RUSHING, RC3

The modern renovation of this 100-year-old South Ashland home began with the dismantling of a three-story, inoperable brick fireplace. This enabled the wall between the living room and the kitchen to be removed, opening up the space and creating the functional family room/kitchen. The cooktop and hood were located on the peninsula, allowing for an open and functional area to prepare and serve food. The necessary structural beam was disguised in a continuous soffit that became a custom design element and lighting trough.

Top 5 Local Burgers

The Idiot Lexington’s self-proclaimed “first gastropub,” The Village Idiot delivers a slightly more outrageous take on burger deliciousness. Sure, they have a regular burger, and it’s great. But their signature burger, The Idiot, makes for a truly interesting burger experience.They start with house-ground beef from Marksbury Farm, a Garrard County farm, market and processing facility so obsessive about their beef that each patty comes from the same cow. Next, they top the patty with Tillamook Cheddar and a huge onion ring filled with braised short rib meat. Served with fries and one of 20 draft beers or dozens of bottled, The Idiot is a great choice if you’re feeling adventurous.

Classic Burger Sawyer’s began as a sit down, table service restaurant specializing in chili. Over the years it has morphed into one of downtown’s favorite burger joints. Popular with downtown lunchers and huge on game days, the Sawyer’s Classic Burger is always a hit. Inspired by his grandfather’s hamburgers, owner Jim Sawyer changed the restaurant to a line order when he introduced flat iron burgers to the menu. What makes Sawyer’s burgers special? First of all, you’ll likely be welcomed by Jim, one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Order your burger, and they’ll get to work, cooking it up on a flat iron griddle that came from a Navy ship. Next comes the interesting part, the toppings bar.Think salad bar, but for your burger. Sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, melted cheese ... dress your burger just the way you like it. Add fries or house-made chips and you have an American classic.

O’Round Since 1981 Lynagh’s has been the campus version of the laid-back Irish pub. During this time, they have been serving up what is arguably the most iconic burger in town. Offered eight different ways, this beauty has been a staple of locals and college students alike. It just works. The only thing holding the O’Round back from burger immortality is ... potato chips. Potato chips just don’t cut it as a side unless they are house-made. Mercifully, they have added some optional sides in the past few years. But, get a fryer! Burger + fries = win.

193 Burger County Club’s 193 Burger began as a fundraiser for local nonprofit art gallery Institute 193, but was so popular that it quickly became a regular menu item. Chef/owner Johnny Shipley and crew create this little marvel from a blend of 80/20 Creekstone no-ash beef seared on a griddle.The patty is topped with bacon jam created from bacon, jalapeño, coffee, maple syrup and vinegar, finished off with smoked portobella and sharp cheddar, and served on a Sunrise Bakery bun smeared with gochujang ketchup (a savory, pungent and generally awesome fermented Korean condiment, made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans and salt). Pair the 193 with some poutine — County Club’s version of the Canadian dish featuring French fries smothered with homemade gravy and cheese curds — and a beer from the wellcurated menu, and you’ll be happy.

Though New England writer and grower Eliot Coleman is often linked with introducing in the 1980s the use of unheated plastic “hoop-style” greenhouses as a means of extending the harvest season into winter months, we actually owe the original conception of these ingenious structures to “the father of plastic greenhouses,” former University of Kentucky horticulture professor Emery M. Emmert.

Four Season Farming

How several local growers seasoned this winter’s extreme weather

BY RONA ROBERTS

F

our season farming? Winter harvest? Season extension? Those ag-speak terms equal big changes on central Kentucky dinner plates: locally grown fresh greens in January and February, and slices of deadripe local tomatoes a month early. We owe all that to a Kentuckian who died more than half a century ago and to what he called “field greenhouses.” Though New England writer and grower Eliot Coleman is often linked with introducing in the 1980s the use of unheated plastic “hoop-style” greenhouses as a means of extending the harvest season into winter months, we actually owe the original conception of these ingenious structures to “the father of plastic greenhouses,” Emery M. Emmert. Born in Iowa in 1900, he was hired to teach horticulture at the University of Kentucky in 1928. When he died in 1962 after 34 years on UK’s faculty, Dr. Emmert had developed ways to use plastic and the earth’s own heat to grow vegetables and fruits both earlier and later than usual, offer

fresh produce in winter months, and increase yield. Today, growers call the plasticcovered, unheated, lightweight structures he introduced “hoop houses” or “high tunnels.” Krista Jacobsen, assistant professor in UK’s Department of Horticulture, shared Emmert’s story as a way of explaining the decades-long reach of UK hoop house research. Practical application by central Kentucky growers is still in its infancy, though. “In Kentucky we have outstanding growers using high tunnels,” Jacobsen said. “There’s Au Naturel Farm near Bowling Green and growers in northern Kentucky and Louisville, but we don’t have that many locally yet.” Perhaps any grower wearing her thinking cap would look at the winter we just survived and be shocked to see that any midwinter crop production survived the extreme conditions. Yet UK and other experienced hoop house growers produced at least some fresh winter vegetables in spite of 2014’s boomeranging polar vortex. UK’s January and February harvests from three fixed and three movable hoop houses included kale, arugula and carrots. Strawberries (left), greens (right) and tomatoes (top) at the University of Kentucky’s South Farm all weathered winter's extremes. Thanks to hoop house protection, these crops mature earlier than those planted outdoors. PHOTOS BY SARAH JANE SANDERS

Berries on Bryan owner and grower Erik Walles was able to save his early chard this year, but the cold in December overwhelmed his lettuces.

PHOTOS BY SARAH JANE SANDERS

Erik Walles began growing coldloving vegetables in an unheated green house in 2006 at his Berries on Bryan Station. He said that season extension has benefitted the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) baskets produced at his farm by allowing the CSA season to start earlier and providing stronger and fuller baskets. “It allows the farmer to have a unique advantage,” he said. “You can sell good food early, and that secures loyalty.” Walles calls the hoop houses “beautiful tools, great technology.” He added a hoop house in 2012 and just completed a new hoop house this winter.

“They are in constant production,” he said of his three structures. The earth itself provides their only heat. This year so far, Walles managed to save his early chard, but the cold in December overwhelmed his lettuces. In past years, in addition to offering CSA shares and other sales, Berries on Bryan’s lettuces and greens have filled plates at nearby Windy Corner Restaurant every month of the year. Even this cold year, Walles delivered his first 10 pounds of greens to a restaurant client on the first day of spring, well ahead of outdoor crops –– credit Emmert for the assist.

Season extension tools such as hoop houses “allow the farmer to have a unique advantage,” said Erik Walles of Berries on Bryan.“You can sell good food early, and that secures loyalty.” april 2014 chevy chaser magazine | 37

Count Henkle’s Herbs & Heirlooms in Nicholasville among the latest growers to put Emmert’s findings into practice. Though relatively new to season extension, husband-and-wife team Mark and Velvet Henkle pour out enthusiasm for growing their business, and back that up with sheer hard work. Mark Henkle said, “I planted 34 varieties of pink tomatoes this year –– I have no self control.” And yes, he planted the rest of the rainbow, too. “In January, we sleep,” Velvet Henkle said. “Or we used to,” Mark added with a laugh. This January, after years of preparation, saving, grant writing, construction wrangles and sheer effort, the couple completed an eco-friendly wood boilerheated greenhouse. Like many organic and sustainable vegetable growers who need healthy, organic transplants in months when none can be bought, the Henkles plan to rely on the separate strengths of their heated greenhouse and the unheated hoop house they built in 2012. The heated greenhouse will provide the warmth that seeds need to germinate. Once the plants reach transplant size, the hoop house will provide moisture control, protection from wind and other benefits, without requiring heat.

“I planted 34 varieties of pink tomatoes this year — I have no self control.” MARK HENKLE, HENKLE’S HERBS & HEIRLOOMS

While the Henkles built most of their two plastic-covered season extension “tools” themselves, funds came from multiple sources, including the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund, the Jessamine County Community Agricultural Investment Fund, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service of the United States Department of Agriculture. Special help comes from Mark Henkle’s father, Hubert, who often takes the deep night shifts when the temperature drops and the greenhouse boiler needs fresh wood every four hours. “He’s living my dream,” Hubert Henkle said of his son. Emery M. Emmert helped realize that dream. Emmert Farm Road, which leads to UK’s research farm off Nicholasville Road, reflects UK’s esteem for this 20th century horticulturist. When you eat that perfect local strawberry three weeks early this spring, tip your fork to his legacy. cc

Facts about four season farming and season extension • Before plastic, the construction of greenhouses, orangeries, and conservatories depended on glass. Plastic shields many greenhouses today. • Typically, but not always, greenhouses include a heat source and can be closed on all sides, with plants growing in containers that hold planting media. Hoop houses (high tunnels) often feature open ends, with plants often growing directly in soil. • Growers use both hoop houses and greenhouses to stretch the growing months (e.g., lettuce in January) and to produce tender crops early (e.g., strawberries and tomatoes a month early.) These practices give growers market advantages. • Hoop house kit vendors offer options suited to both typical northern winters and typical southern winters. “Northern” kits feature sturdier construction, in anticipation of greater snow and lower temperatures.

Spring ‘Tonic’ Salad Spring is known as a time for rejuvenation and rebirth. Spring tonic recipes traditionally utilize the early greens and plants to help cleanse the body, restoring fresh vitamins following a long (and often stagnant) winter. This version of a spring tonic combines local greens, herbs and eggs with a hot bacon vinaigrette. All of these ingredients will be available locally at the Lexington Farmers’ Market — which celebrates its spring grand opening April 5-6 — in the early weeks of April. For more information, times and locations of Lexington Farmers' Market, visit www.farmersmarket.com. Our Spring Tonic Salad ingredients: • A mix of local greens, including mustard greens, kale and chard, harvested from Berries on Bryan • Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 tsp. • Seeded, savory stone ground mustard, 1 tsp. • Red Wattle Bacon from Hood's Heritage Hogs (Mt. Olivet, Kentucky) – 6 slices • Missing Link Farm eggs, hard-boiled and chopped • A mix of fresh herbs, including chives, peppery oregano, and French Sorrel from Michler’s Greenhouse

Recipe: • Stir cider vinegar with seeded, savory mustard. • Saute bacon, reserving the hot fat. • Pour the hot fat from the pan over the greens in a heat-proof bowl; toss quickly and thoroughly. • Add the vinegar-mustard mixture. • Add salt and pepper to taste. • Top with chopped bacon, sliced eggs, and fresh herbs.

Chevy Chaser’s Drink of the Month

The Sazerac Created in pre-Civil War-era New Orleans, the Sazerac is often considered to be America’s first branded cocktail.A variation of the Old-Fashioned, its original main ingredient was brandy, but rye whiskey now frequently replaces that liquor. A classic recipe includes an absinthe rinse of the glass, and the addition of Peychaud’s bitters (comparable to Angostura bitters) as well as a lemon. In our version, orange bitters replace Peychaud’s and the twist is orange. INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

• 3 oz. rye whiskey • 1 sugar cube • 3 dashes orange bitters • 1 teaspoon absinthe • 1 orange peel • Ice cubes • Old Fashioned glass

• Chill an Old Fashioned glass by filling it with ice. Let sit while preparing rest of drink. • In a separate glass, muddle a sugar cube and bitters. Add rye whiskey and ice to the bitters glass; stir. • Discard ice from the chilled glass and pour in absinthe. Swirl the liquid in the glass, discard liquid. • Strain whiskey mixture glass into Old Fashioned glass. • Twist orange peel over glass and hang on side as a garnish. (Do not drop peel in glass.)

laire Danes, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Obama are just a handful of clients whom pattern maker, designer and recent Lexington transplant Jacques Mugnier has had a hand in dressing over the course of his 23-year fashion career. One of the newest members of the Lexington Fashion Collaborative, Mugnier spent much of his career in Paris and New York, working as a pattern maker and draper for designers including Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Jason Wu and J. Mendel. But many of Mugnier’s most recent dresses are inspired by Kentucky, the place he has called home since last August. “I find that you draw inspiration from things that are around you,” said Mugnier. “Moving to a place that’s as beautiful as Kentucky –– you find it everywhere.” Mugnier is one of 20 local fashion designers whose work is currently on display at the Headley-Whitney Museum, as part of “Stitching Art: A Lexington Fashion Collaborative Exhibit.” The exhibit, which also features the work of seven area fashion photographers, highlights the diversity of Lexington’s burgeoning fashion scene and the primary organization that binds it.

Lexington Fashion Collaborative founder and executive director Soreyda Begley PHOTO BY MICK JEFFRIES

Formed in 2009, the Lexington Fashion Collaborative was created to support and promote local designers, models, photographers and hair and make-up stylists. The organization was co-founded by Lexington designer Soreyda Benedit-Begley following the inaugural “The Future of Fashion,” a runway event organized by several local designers. Begley said the event, which has become an annual occurrence, brought to light the abundance of fashion talent in the city and region. While the organization was initially established with a focus on creating venues and opportunities for collaboration with the presentation of original fashion designs, since incorporating as a 501c3 non-profit, LFC has recently been focusing more heavily on developing programs geared toward educational and skill development. “We are looking more into helping our members develop not just the creative/artistic side but also the busi-

ness side of fashion. The industry can’t be established here unless it is generating income for the people involved,” Begley said. “This industry is still very young in the local scene, and we are all learning how to keep it going and make it work.” The Lexington Sustainable Education and Workforce Solutions (LexSEWS) program, an initiative that LFC has been working on for the past two years, seeks to address one of the largest barriers to creating a profitable local industry: manufacturing. “I have tried several times to start a clothing line, but it’s difficult because we don’t have access to a local manufacturer,” said Begley, whose primary business is generated from creating custom designs for weddings, pageants and dancers and other performers. “There’s a great need for it.” LexSEWS seeks to place refugee women in jobs manufacturing locally designed fashion pieces. Still in its

early stages, the LexSEWS project has formed important relationships with OWL, a non-profit organization that aims to help employ individuals with barriers to employment, the Kentucky Refugee Ministry and the LFUCG office for multi-cultural affairs. Begley hopes the project will ultimately help place refugees with much needed work, as well as help bolster the growing local fashion industry by providing resources for production. While Begley is excited by the interest that the LFC has garnered over the past five years, she admits she is often disappointed by the promising local talent that vacates this city for larger markets with more opportunities. Sarah Estes, LFC’s co-founder, recently moved to Los Angeles, where she now works as the manager of Elder-Statesman’s sewing room; other LFC members have moved to Atlanta and even Louisville to pursue their careers in recent months. The organization continues to

grow, however, with a regional network that Begley says is close to 1,500 strong. In addition to hosting annual runway shows and other fashion events, the organization serves as an important central hub and resource for area fashion enthusiasts of varying styles, interests and skill levels. “For some it might be kind of a hobby, but for some it’s a business that they are growing or building,” said Amy Gundrum-Greene, the museum’s executive director and curator of the exhibit, said of the participating fashion artists. “For some of them, it’s a second career.” Designers represented in the Headley-Whitney exhibit include established designers like Mugnier and internationally renowned milliner Polly Singer –– whose hats are often seen on Millionaire’s Row at the Kentucky Derby –– as well as up-andcoming designers, such as 16-year-old Naomi Connor and 28-year-old Heidi McKenzie.

“The Lexington Fashion Collaborative has helped me pursue any dream I’ve had of being a clothing designer,” said McKenzie, who said she always had an interest in fashion but only started pursuing design on a professional level after seeing Begley speak at a Morehead College event a couple years ago. McKenzie, who was paralyzed in a car accident at the age of 21, was inspired by Begley; she is now working on a handicap-accessible clothing line geared toward clients in wheelchairs. “There’s not a lot out there for people with disabilities,” she said. McKenzie has several removable fashion collars, which she coined “necklars,” featured in the exhibit.

A New Lexington BY HARRIETT ROSE

R

eading the Lexington HeraldLeader front page suggests that we old Lexingtonians may soon need a new map in order to recognize our own town. Changes are anticipated by the dozens, not to speak of those that have already occurred. Since I no longer drive, it is no longer my responsibility to watch where we are going. I also don’t usually backseat drive, so changes occur without my noticing them as a passenger. The anticipated newness will have to be seen once it arrives, I imagine. What I’ve been calling the “Meadow on Main Street” has already been transformed, with accompanying blasting sounds; it will be followed by the erection of a hotel-shopping-apartment dwelling with a garage underneath. On the other side of the street, we will have a luxury hotel, complete with a modern art gallery. Just two or three blocks to the west will be a new Civic Center and a glassed-in Rupp Arena; behind that, a mega movie entertainment center. In addition to the announcements, I am amazed at the amount of money we are set to spend to turn Lexington into a big city. I thought we had money problems, but obviously the kind of arithmetic I learned has been replaced by a new kind, called “financing.” It goes like this: a million here and a million there — pretty soon you’re talking about Money! Old friends who once I knew

are, or will be, gone. Sears Roebuck has left us, as has Miller and Woodward and other family businesses whose owners I once knew, but who, like me have succumbed to the years, leaving the roles of bigman-in-the-city to younger faces and names that I read on the business pages. Since I’ve almost always lived here, I’ve watched the boys we called “big men on campus” evolve into “big men in the city” or “big men in the state.” I’ve given up reading about the divorces — most people I knew have stuck with the final choice. The hot blood has cooled. People I once knew are more likely to be found with the obituaries. When I was driving, I got used to one-way streets — knowing which were one-way, and what direction they went. Now drivers will have to learn it all over, I suppose — not me, I still won’t drive — and those who drive me will know the new location of the restaurants we like. Good places to eat don’t seem to close — they just lose their leases and go to another location. It might sound as if I don’t like change because I’ve gotten old. That’s not the case — I’ve never liked change. My husband told me, “You either change or stagnate.” I must have accepted that — I’ve changed countless times, but I’ve disliked the prospect every time. I think it’s because I have almost always liked the way my life was going — believing that change would make it better has always been a hard pill for me to swallow. cc

The artisans and craftsmen of Prajna Design and Construction exhibit a painter’s and sculptor’s sense of directness to the art of building. The exhibit demonstrates how Prajna combines the ideas of beauty and perfection from the Greeks and the harmony and simplicity of the artisans of Japan to every project they work on, from large commercial builds to the small bus shelters, residences or small remodels. Artist reception April 18 in conjunction with Gallery Hop. Gallery hours: Tues. - Fri., 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., Sat noon - 3 p.m. and by appointment. M.S.

This exhibit brings together two nationally recognized artists, Morgan Craig and Colin Doherty, who use architecture as a metaphor via exquisitely painted canvasses. Philadelphia artist Morgan Craig creates large-scale paintings that depict abandoned ruins of factories and dilapidated urban dwellings as repositories for societal memories. Formerly from Los Angeles and now residing in Lexington, artist Colin Doherty paints architectural landscapes that convey a deep sense of yearning within a vast open horizon. Both artists create melancholy works that question our identity as well as our collective obligation to the architecture that we produce for both current and future generations. Gallery hours: Mon. - Fri., 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sat, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Living Arts and Science Center, 362 N. Martin Luther King Blvd. (859) 2525222. www.lasclex.org.
