ll I want for Christmas is an easel. I belted out these words a few weeks ago as I experienced what I can best describe as an “aha” moment. Jealous of friends with admirable hobbies such as tennis, golf, knitting, singing, baking, rock climbing, rescuing animals, etc., I have longed for something to call my own these past couple years. It’s true, I do enjoy meeting friends for cocktails and shopping, but these activities always leave me longing for something more—like money for when I’m broke after combining the two. Then it dawned on me, my “aha” moment: I don’t have to be great at something to enjoy doing it! Enter painting…and the easel. I took art in high school and absolutely loved it. Did I win any awards? Nope. But that shouldn’t be an impetus for exploring life’s curiosities, right? I’m taking a page from Wassily Kandinsky, a Russian painter and theorist, and arguably one of the most important artists of his time. He gave up a career in law and economics to pursue art in his 30s, later creating what many called “visual music.” I’m sure he didn’t think he would become world famous, but after a few art classes, he too, longed for more. While I don’t expect to jump careers, I do look forward to acknowledging my artist-soul once again; we’ve missed each other. If art inspires you, take a look at this month’s feature, “Art Class: A to Z,” in which Sharon Penny whimsically catalogs all things art in a collage of shows, classes, mediums and more—all to be discovered locally! Also on display, just in time for harvest, is Morgan Cásarez’s “Through the Grapevine: Local Wine Experts Uncorked.” If you’re like me, you love good wine but often feel intimidated when it comes to the selection and pairing process. Don’t ferment, take a few of our tasting notes from area connoisseurs and you’ll be a vine-ripened pro in no time! Until next month, raise a glass and cheers to that which inspires you! — Desiree

Q&A Q: What advice would you give to your younger self? A: Take better care of your physical and emotional health. Q: What comes to you naturally? A: Creativity, ingenuity and inventiveness. Q: What’s your biggest pet peeve? A: People who say, “I can’t” without ever entertaining the possibility of “I can.” Q: Biggest life inspirations? A: Creative people, and birds because they can fly. Q: What are you most proud of? A: Finally finding a way to motivate and inspire people to re-able themselves.

rass Valley resident Rosanna Radding doesn’t consider herself disabled. After a stroke in her 40s left her unable to use her left arm and hand, she learned to consider herself “reabled,” a word she feels reflects more positively on her process of adapting to one-handed life. It wasn’t easy at first. “You can get really hungry learning how to open a jar with one hand,” she laughs, but after a lot of practice Radding is now proud to say she can do everything twohanded people can do. Radding is the founder of One Hand Can (, a website that offers support for those facing similar 12 - September 2013

challenges. Her specialty is cooking tutorials, and she is currently in the process of developing a specially designed cutting board for one-handed cooks. Radding wants to prove that re-abled people can do anything they set their mind to with a little practice and determination. She spends most of her days giving one-handed cooking demonstrations, but also continues to paint and do all the things she loved to do before her stroke. “I’ve always been the sort of person who, if somebody tells me I can’t do something, I go out and do it,” Radding insists. Considering all she’s accomplished so far, we don’t doubt it. — Amber Foster

Q: What’s next? A: Continue to share my poststroke experiences with greater numbers of people all over the country.

season’s eatings

PlacerGROWN and Foothill Farmers’ Market WHAT’S IN SEASON NOW: Peppers and local sausage One of the best things about summer and early fall is enjoying the bounty of so many colorful fruits and vegetables found at local farmers’ markets. When it comes to bright colors, nothing beats the vibrant hues of the bell pepper. A favorite of many small-plot gardeners, peppers are one of the most popular vegetables consumed in the U.S. Who can resist a pepper’s crunch in salads, soups, stews and relishes? Peppers also go great with sausage and other locally raised meats. Not only is meat from grass-fed animals more nutritious but it tastes better, too. Buying veggies DID YOU KNOW? and meat from a local farmer also means your Red, yellow and orange bell food hasn’t traveled far, so you know that it’s peppers are just green peppers fresh. that have ripened. The red variety is the sweetest and contains the most vitamins and nutrients.

To get the most flavor from a bell pepper, check for firmness and make certain the pepper is free of wrinkles. A tasty bell pepper should feel heavy in comparison to its size. Peppers will stay fresh for about a week when stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator; green peppers will keep their freshness a few days longer than red or yellow varieties.

Extreme Java Jungle Café


e’ve all been there. Sometimes, you just need a little liquid pick-me-up. So when I found myself a little less than bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on a recent weekend, I headed over to Extreme Java Jungle Café for a quick caffeine fix. Located across the street from the newly revitalized town square, and featuring a vast array of offerings—think smoothies, sandwiches, salads, beer, wine, desserts, retail and more—this downtown Roseville jewel is much more than just your average coffee shop. The café itself is a fun, eclectic mix of animal print furniture, high-tops, sofa lounges and coffee tables. The stage in the corner, decked out with band equipment, provides for nighttime entertainment, such as local bands and karaoke. Tucked into the far corner is also a kids’ area with toys, coloring books, reading books and board games. I ordered an Iced Vanilla Latte, opting to make it “extreme” with an extra shot of espresso, which was deliciously creamy with just the right amount of sweetness. And if you need another excuse to visit this character-filled café, the ladies who served me my eyeopener were super cute, too.

health&wellness ANATOMY AND FUNCTION The prostate gland—located beneath a man’s bladder and surrounding the upper part of the urethra—produces the majority of seminal fluid that carries sperm. Its function is regulated by testosterone, a male sex hormone produced mainly in the testicles. The prostate gland grows considerably during puberty, then doesn’t change much until around age 40, when it starts growing again. In many men, this later growth continues and can cause three common prostate diseases: enlarged prostate (BPH), prostatitis, or prostate cancer; some men may develop more than one.

prostate health 101 Keep Your Eye on the Ball by Janice Rosenthal Rock


he prostate may be a small male sex gland (about the size of a walnut), but the medical issues surrounding the gland are anything but miniscule. According to the Men’s Health Network’s Prostate Health Guide (, more than 30 million men suffer from prostate conditions that negatively affect their quality of life. In honor of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Style decided to take readers through the nuts and bolts of prostate health.

According to the American Urological Association, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common prostate health problem among men. By about age 50, approximately half of all men have begun to develop an enlarged prostate, and by age 80, ninety percent of all men have the condition. As the prostate grows larger, it presses against the urethra, narrowing the passage urine flows through. This can result in uncomfortable symptoms, such as frequent urination, inability to completely empty the bladder, difficulty starting urine flow, or weak urine stream. BPH is a noncancerous problem; however, because male urinary symptoms can also be caused by more serious conditions, such as prostate cancer, it’s important to see your doctor to determine the cause. “BPH can sometimes see spontaneous correction,” says Javid Javidan, MD, Medical Director of Mercy San Juan Medical Center’s da Vinci Surgical Services Program. “Other treatments include medications, which can relax the bladder neck or shrink the prostate, and urological surgery.”


NORMAL 22 - September 2013


Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate, often caused by an infection. It’s the most common prostate problem for men under the age of 50—so common that about half of adult men will be treated for it in their lifetime, according to the Prostate Health Guide. Prostatitis is characterized by discomfort, pain, frequent or infrequent urination, and,

sometimes, fever. It is usually quickly diagnosed and most frequently treated with antibiotics.

PROSTATE CANCER In American men, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer (after skin cancer) and the risk increases with age. As stated by the Mayo Clinic, many men with prostate cancer are more likely to die with prostate cancer than to die from it, since it is a slow-growing cancer. Although the disease is rare before age 50, experts believe that most elderly men have at least traces of it. Prostate cancer often causes no symptoms until it’s in an advanced stage. Once it begins to grow more rapidly, however, it frequently spreads beyond the prostate gland itself and is dangerous.

RISK FACTORS The Mayo Clinic says African-American men have the highest frequency of prostate cancer in the world and the highest death rate from the disease. In other parts of the world—Asia, Africa and Latin America—prostate cancer is rare. Risk factors such as age or family history (if your father, brother or son had prostate cancer, you’re at higher risk) are 24 - September 2013

out of your control; however, you can choose to live a healthy lifestyle. Men who eat a lot of red meat or high-fat dairy products appear to have a slightly higher chance of getting the disease.

DIAGNOSIS The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is a blood test showing the amount of PSA being released by the prostate gland into a man’s blood. Somewhat controversial due to the fact that a healthy man’s blood can show low amounts of PSA, this test is usually done along with a digital rectal exam; together, they can help identify men who may have prostate cancer. “Prostate cancer can only absolutely be diagnosed by a biopsy,” Javidian says. “A biopsy can show pre-cancerous lesions, how aggressive the cancer is if it is present, and can open the allimportant dialogue between doctor and patient as to treatment options. This dialogue is crucial to helping a patient make informed decisions, along with the doctor.”

TREATMENT OPTIONS Treatment options for prostate cancer depend on various factors, including the

type of cancer cells, age and other health problems the patient has. In its early stages (confined to the prostate gland), prostate cancer can be treated with very good outcomes; and fortunately, according to the Mayo Clinic, about 85 percent of American men with prostate cancer are diagnosed in an early stage of the disease. When the cancer is more advanced, treatments include hormone therapy, surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Clinical trials are constantly in progress for this particular cancer—all involve many new forms of treatment that are still being proven, such as treating only the part of the prostate that has the cancer, much like a lumpectomy for breast cancer. The latest research is found in the databases of many leading medical systems, providing information on long-term outcomes, which can help doctors determine the most effective treatment for each person. The most important thing to keep in mind regarding prostate cancer, says Javidian, is to learn all you can about your choices and talk to your doctor who will put together a team of experts who can work simultaneously to provide you with the best care possible.

stand up placer Rebuilding Battered Lives by Morgan Cásarez


hen counseling victims of domestic violence, Chivas J. Mays draws on her own experiences to heal others. “I’m a survivor, and when I was being abused many years ago, I didn’t have or know of any domestic violence resources,” she shares. “I feel my experience has allowed me to be empathetic, identify the needs of survivors, and allow those that know my story to see domestic violence doesn’t define me as a victim.” Mays serves as the housing coordinator for Stand Up Placer (formerly known as PEACE for Families), a nonprofit dedicated to rebuilding the lives of domestic violence and sexual assault victims in Placer County. Executive Director Michelle Coleman says that in the past year alone, Stand Up Placer has assisted approximately 2,400 people. Available services include a safe house for battered women and their children, supportive housing for survivors of domestic violence, legal and social services, support groups, and indi-

vidual counseling for survivors and their loved ones. “Our goal is to provide survivors with the tools and support they need to heal and set a new course for the next phase of their lives,” Coleman says. “We strive to educate Placer County residents about the unacceptable impact domestic and sexual violence has on our families, businesses [and] the community.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS), nearly 18 percent of women and one percent of men have been raped in their lifetime. Additionally, one in four women and one in seven men report being the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner. Volunteer Peer Counselor Chris Lackey has worked with Stand Up Placer for more than two years and says that as a male victim of domestic violence, “My work has assisted me in my recovery by helping others who have found themselves in a similar situation. I have also been told by female victims that they have a better appreciation for male victims and realize that not all men are abusive.” Ron Lawrence, board president and Rocklin Chief of Police, says he appreciates the organization’s ability to work alongside law enforcement officers as they assist victims in the aftermath of abuse. “For a police officer, seeing a Stand Up Placer Crisis Volunteer show up at the emergency room after a traumatic experience to assist with survivors during the hospital examination and be there during the police interviews is a tremendous part of the system,” he explains. For survivors like Amber—who is also a volunteer staff member—the ultimate measure of the organization’s success lies in its ability to create real change in their lives. “There is nothing scarier than leaving your whole life and the devil that you know for the devil you don’t,” she says, “but I can tell you that my worst day today is 10 times better than my best day before escaping. It is hard and it is lonely at times, but it is worth it. [My family and I] are now fully self-sufficient and successful, contributing members of the community.”

emember the old story that you can’t get Californians out of their cars? Scratch that. With today’s crawling traffic, $4 gas, soaring parking fees and bad air days, residents of Sacramento’s suburbs are embracing public transportation. The main reason: The service is great, it gets people just about anywhere—conveniently and comfortably—and all for less cost than a typical car trip. All four jurisdictions (El Dorado and Placer Counties, plus Folsom and Roseville), serve more than half a million people and offer at least three primary options: commuter service, local buses and Dial-a-Ride. All but Folsom run commuter buses to downtown Sacramento; Folsom instead has light rail. Buses and the train generally cost less than driving and travel faster, as they whoosh past traffic gridlock in HOV lanes or on tracks. What’s more, Placer County recently bought five plush new 45-foot buses with high back, reclining seats and foot rests; and bike riders can stow their bikes—up to four—on the front of the buses. In Roseville, transit ambassadors ride the buses to help people learn the routes. Mass transit also helps protect the air. According to the state’s Public Health Institute, California is the 12th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, with cars causing 30 percent of the emissions. Helen Dyda, marketing/communications analyst for Roseville Alternative Transportation, provides statistics: One 18-mile bus trip from Roseville to Sacramento emits nine pounds of carbon dioxide. If all 40 passengers drive, CO2 emissions total about 320 pounds. The advantages of local transit systems make it inviting to sit back, relax and leave the driving to them.

trendspotting Fall Fashion Forecast by Kerrie Kelly


nterior design is where fashion meets the home; therefore, it makes perfect sense that the top trends in fall fashion and interior design would see significant overlap. Here are some of the most exciting designs to keep you “on trend� for the balance of 2013.

A simple light fixture with a metallic shimmer quickly changes the complexion of a space.

ALL THAT SHIMMERS IS METALLIC For a touch of small-scale glamour, pump up your interior with metallic finds. Dotty metallic linen pillows can provide a kick for any space. Alternatively, you can really commit to the runway look by incorporating copper lighting, brushed brass faucets or even metallic tiles for kitchen and bath areas.

BLACK, WHITE AND BOLD Walls, ceilings and floors are black, white and bold all over. Stripes have made a major comeback via wallpaper and area rugs. Lines and patterns are playful and can create a dramatic effect for both large and small spaces. To achieve a luxe look for less, try painting stripes or other contrasting patterns on a focal point wall or ceiling treatment. Daring types can consider painting a bold stripe or chevron motifs on wood or concrete floors. 34 - September 2013

homedesign This living room reflects a softened version of mid-century modern design.

All it takes is a visit to The California Museum in downtown Sacramento to understand how Charles and Ray Eames kicked off this look. Mid-century modern designs seen today deserve some serious attention. These simple furniture lines and splashy blocked motifs are no doubt en vogue and definitely here to stay. The combination provides an optimistic aesthetic that is full of life while creating a modern vibe, too.

SOFT, NATURAL NEUTRALS Natural fabrics have been used for eons. Linen, wool and fur (we suggest faux) have been draped on everything from beds and chairs to outdoor benches. With sustainability in mind, a good portion of the interior design industry is going back to its natural roots, using elements sans dyes and toxic finishes. Major retailers have offered up organic designs that keep spaces approachable and cozy. In this nook, washed linens are paired with reclaimed wood trim and light fixtures.

This modern, geometric design becomes the dining room’s focal point.

GETTING GEOMETRIC While leading trends include murals, coverings with an aged elegance or textured pieces, others are pushing the design envelope—adding graphic patterns and all sorts of tactile dimensions. In fact, most clients are asking for a bolder approach, even in small spaces. A shabbychic space can be quickly updated by adding a contrasted effect via fabrics or wall treatments.

Turn a bedroom from drab to fab with a simple addition of graphic wallpaper.

Okay, encaustic, you win. You are the awesomest of all arts. Meaning to “burn in,” encaustic painting involves heating beeswax, resin and powdered pigments with a blowtorch. Awesome, right?

GRAPEVINE Local Wine Experts Uncorked by Morgan Cásarez Photography by Dante Fontana

Vino, vin, wein, viini—call it what you will, but the language of wine is universal. From Spanish reds to French bubblies, there are endless options when it comes to selecting a bottle of fermented goodness, but how do you know whether you’ve made the right choice? Should pairing rules of the past dictate when and what you drink, or is it okay to throw caution to the wind? You’ve got questions and Style’s wine experts have the ultimate collection of tips, tricks and industry insights, so pull up a barstool and raise a glass to our favorite local tastemakers. 42 - September 2013

Moffat discovered that fresh popcorn with melted black truffle butter pairs surprising well with California Chardonnay.

Q&A Q: What is your favorite local wine and winery? A: I was a victim of poor judgment many years ago when I named a local wine as my favorite. I won’t make that mistake again, but I will say that Mt. Vernon Winery has always been a top performer, and I’m a big fan of Lone Buffalo Vineyards, Casque Wines, and Naggiar Vineyards and Winery. Q: What makes for an outstanding wine list? A: Diversity, accessibility and affordability are three essentials. Q: What’s the biggest mistake people make when ordering wine? A: They don’t ask for a taste before making a decision. If you’re not familiar with the list and wine is served by the glass, just ask: Most restaurants will happily provide a oneounce sample. Also, many people are afraid to ask questions. My advice is don’t be, and you’ll be pointed to a great bottle of wine. Q: What’s your favorite classic and atypical food/wine pairing? A: I’m a huge fan of Pinot Noir, and it pairs beautifully with duck dishes. At Carpe Vino, try the fresh popcorn with melted black truffle butter paired with a California Chardonnay. It’s killer.

Gary Moffat

Owner, Carpe Vino 1568 Lincoln Way, Auburn 530-823-0320, Gary Moffat learned the fine art of wining and dining after years spent working in high-tech publishing. He says entertaining clients at fine restaurants worldwide was just part of the job and gave him the unique opportunity to indulge in a wide variety of wines. In 2002, he decided to completely switch gears and open Auburn’s acclaimed Carpe Vino. “After a first career in the complex world of high tech,” he says, “I find it a huge relief and joy to own a business that I truly understand.” For more than a decade, Moffat and his son, Drew, have worked side by side to develop a following for their bustling wine bar and retail shop. When their loyal fans “demanded food to go with their wine,” father and son responded by adding a restaurant in 2006, which Moffat says has helped boost their 850-plus member Wine Club. With more than 400 retail priced wines in stock, Carpe Vino proudly caters to patrons of all tastes and budgets in a thoroughly unpretentious atmosphere where experienced staff are happy to share the story behind every top-selling bottle. “Try varietals that are new to you. Explore wine regions with which you are unfamiliar,” Moffat advises. Local favorite: Lone Buffalo Vineyard “The key is to avoid being trapped by convention.”

Q: What are three of your best wine tips? A: 1. Life is short—don’t settle for cheap wine, especially when you dine out. 2. If you find something you really like at a great price, buy a case because when it’s gone, it’s gone 3. Avoid wine ruts. I hate it when people order the same wine over and over. Q: Which wine regions do you think are underrated? Are there any up-and-coming regions you would recommend? A: In California, Paso Robles, Lake County and the Sierra foothills are making huge strides. In Washington, the Columbia River Valley and Walla Walla are sleepers. I’m also a big fan of wines from Spain and South Africa. Q: What are your favorite new trends in wine? A: Mechanical closures replacing corks, fabulous value wines from Spain, and seeing so many new faces in my wine shop and restaurant.

September 2013 - 43

Q&A Q: What is your favorite local wine and winery? A: My favorite local wine is the Sobon Estate 2011 Zinfandel from Fiddletown—a complex wine with aromas of spices and a toasty, dusty cherry component with a long finish—and my favorite winery is Naggiar Vineyards, located in the Sierra foothills, between Auburn and Grass Valley. Q: What’s the biggest mistake people make when ordering wine? A: Most people order wines before considering what food they’ll be enjoying it with, or they get into the habit of ordering the same wine, which takes away all the fun and adventure of trying and exploring new wines. Q: What’s your favorite classic and atypical food/wine pairing? A: Classic: fresh oysters with Schramberg Blanc de Blancs; atypical: rib eye steak with Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon.

Fresh oysters with Schramberg Blanc de Blancs is classic pairing recommended by de Santos.

Manny dos Santos

Room Manager, High Steaks Steakhouse 1200 Athens Avenue, Lincoln 916-408-8327, “Growing up in the Cape Verde Islands, I started to drink wine when I was 11 years old,” explains Manny dos Santos. “My mother believed that red wine was good for the heart and would serve my brothers and me a glass of wine with our lunch.” dos Santos, room manager at Thunder Valley Casino Resort’s High Steaks Steakhouse and a 17-year restaurant industry veteran, says he can’t imagine anyone visiting High Steaks without enjoying at least one glass of wine from the eatery’s expertly curated list. “[It] is,” he says, “the equivalent of going to Hawaii and not touching the water.” As a recipient of the Court of Master Sommelier’s Level I Certification, dos Santos believes wine plays a major role in complementing the perfect steak and, for his part, wouldn’t dare enjoy a rib eye without a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon by his side. “I love the opportunity that I have here at High Steaks to work with a great group of professionals that always make me look forward [to] another evening with them,” he shares. “With their help, I have the opportunity to go from table to table talking to guests and enhancing their experience by making sugRib Eye pairs with Darioush Cabernet Sauvignon gestions of food and wines.” 44 - September 2013

Q: What are three of your best wine tips? A: 1. Attend as many tastings as you can; taste and learn, but always remember to spit. 2. Don’t fill your cellar with wines you like at the moment—I guarantee your palate will change and you will end up with a cellar full of wines that you won’t feel like drinking.
 3. Don’t fall into the trap of exclusively seeking out highly rated or expensive wines. Instead, drink widely and build up a context from which to then fully appreciate the more stellar wines. Q: Do you have any favorite wine gadgets? A: At High Steaks, we have a wine basket to carry decanted wines without disturbing the sediments, particularly in older vintages. Also, the Vinturi wine aerator is a great tool to help open up younger wines. Q: What are your favorite new trends in wine? A: Personalization of wine. If celebrities can put their name and faces on a wine bottle, why can’t we? just launched a new website that allows wine lovers to pick blank bottles and design their own label. The macro trend of personalizing everything in our lives just got more interesting!

Des Jardin suggests complementing your reds with a lamb dish, like the Rack of Lamb Provencal, available at La Provence Restaurant & Terrace.

Q&A Q: What is your favorite local wine and winery? A: Gardner: I would have to say Boeger Winery, located in the Sierra foothills east of Sacramento. The grape varietals that Boeger produces are perfect for the soil conditions and climate of the area. Boeger is still small enough to allow full attention to detail and their wine shows it. They produce a great Barbera, Sangiovese reserve, Syrah and many other wines; what’s more, it’s family owned and operated with a passion for making great wine that’s consistent year after year. It is definitely a destination to have in mind when heading up that way. Q: What’s the biggest mistake people make when ordering wine? A: Des Jardins: The biggest mistake is ordering what someone else tells you to drink instead of what you want to drink. Q: What’s your favorite classic and atypical food/ wine pairing? A: Des Jardins: For reds, any lamb dish with either a Tour de l’Isle Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf du Pape or a Pinot Noir; for whites, scallops with Tour de l’Isle Cotes du Rhone Blanc or ZD Chardonnay. Q: Do you have any favorite wine gadgets? A: Des Jardins: Yes, I love collecting wine keys (wine openers) that are unique. My favorite is one that has two levers—one shorter to start pulling the cork without torqueing it too much, and a longer one to finish the job.

Stephen Des Jardins

Owner, La Provence Restaurant & Terrace 110 Diamond Creek Place, Roseville 916-789-2002, Stephen Des Jardins first took an interest in wine when he was just 17 years old. As he explored the art of garden-to-table cooking, the young gourmand developed an appreciation for the beverage’s unique ability to express “the earth [and] the dirt in whatever part of the world it is grown and the annual changes in climate for that area, which allow one to ‘time travel’ as they try different vintages.” Now, as owner of La Provence Restaurant & Terrace, Des Jardins has the opportunity to share his affection for food and drink with the Roseville community on a daily basis. Although the menu at La Provence includes a number of wines he describes as “wonderful by themselves,” Des Jardins and his talented staff, including manager Fred Gardner, are committed to creating a dining experience that seamlessly melds the flavors of seasonal French/Mediterranean (by way of California) offerings with expertly paired wines by the glass and bottle. “People meet over the growing of food, the preparing of food and the taking of food, and we wanted to be an integral part of all that,” he shares, “similar to other parts of California and, of course, the Provence region of France.” Local favorite: Boeger Winery

For even more Q&A with these wine experts, visit

Q: What are three of your best wine tips? A: Des Jardins: 1. Don’t always decant—you miss watching the wine change as you are having a relaxed dining experience. 2. Respect your wines and the temperature at which they’re served. 3. Truly focus on what you like and let any advice (including this advice) be helpful, or not, as the case may be. Q: What’s a good go-to wine to take to a dinner party? A: Des Jardins: It’s always safe to take a Cotes du Rhone white, Cotes du Rhone red or a bottle of French rosé. Q: What are your favorite new trends in wine? A: Des Jardins: California is blending—using two or more of the five noble grapes more and more—as time goes on.

Mediterranean Omelet

Café Americano Now Serving Everyone’s Favorites by Kelly Soderlund Photography by Dante Fontana


’m kind of breakfast person—I literally wake up hungry. But honestly, it really doesn’t matter to me what time it is; I just love breakfast food. Luckily for me, Café Americano serves breakfast all day. (Well, until their 3 p.m. closing time, that is.) Located next to California Family Fitness on Foothills Boulevard, this familyowned eatery opened in March, thanks to husband-and-wife duo Ralph and Caterina

50 - September 2013

Muhareb. Ralph has been a professional chef for more than 15 years, previously working in a number of Italian restaurants and breakfast spots throughout the Fresno region. And it shows. I visited the quaint café on a recent Sunday afternoon, hankering for my favorite breakfast item: a ginormous, generously filled omelet. Café Americano offers a staggering 17 (!) varieties, each made with three fresh, extra large eggs and served with your choice of a muffin, toast or biscuits and gravy, and hash browns or home-style potatoes. After a lot of hemming and hawing, I finally settled on their fluffy Mediterranean version. Loaded with sautéed spinach, onions, tomatoes and mushrooms, then topped with feta cheese, this was one omelet that left a certain breakfast connoisseur completely satisfied. My dining partner chose a more traditional lunch selection, opting for the crispy chicken salad, a mélange of deep-fried chicken pieces, diced bacon and tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, green onions and olives. Beyond their large and varied breakfast, lunch, senior and kids’ menus, Café Americano also serves Peet’s Coffee (be sure to check out their popular espresso bar), as well as homemade scones, cupcakes and other goodies. The word on the street is that the “neighborhood favorite” breakfast items are Café Americano’s homemade eggs Benedict and the corned beef and hash, which sounds justtempting enough that this omelet lover may have to expand her repertoire.

Pour the warm milk into a large bowl. Mix in 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and sprinkle the yeast over the top. Let stand until the yeast begins to bubble, about 5 minutes. Whisk the egg, butter, salt, vanilla, the remaining sugar, and the orange flower water into the milk. Add 2 cups of flour and work into the wet ingredients using a wooden spoon. Add another cup of flour and gather the dough into a ball. It will be sticky. Knead the dough and add the remaining flour, 1/4-cup at a time, until it forms a smooth yet soft ball— stop adding flour at this point. Transfer the dough to a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for 1-1/2 hours. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and roll out to a 1-inchthick rectangle. Cut the dough lengthwise into 4 pieces, and then cut it crosswise into 6 pieces, creating 24 small beignets. Cover the dough with a clean, dry dish towel and let rise for 1 hour. In a large deep skillet over high heat, warm the oil until it reaches 350 degrees. Use a candy thermometer to check the temperature. Fry the beignets in small batches of 2-3 in the hot oil, turning them every 30 seconds or so with tongs, until they are puffed and golden brown all over. They cook quickly and will start to burn if left too long in the oil. Remove 54 - September 2013

JACKSON-TRIGGS VIDAL ICEWINE 2007 Ice wines are made mostly in Austria and Germany—where it’s known as “eiswein,”—and Canada where it’s spelled “icewine.” The production of this wine is risky, as all of the grapes have to be picked in the middle of the night, at the same time, while still frozen (according to the law). What’s more, the grapes are left on the vine for an extremely long time, so if the weather doesn’t cooperate, a producer of ice wine can lose their entire crop. For this reason, ice wines, which come in small, 200 milliliter or half-bottles, are very expensive (typically between $20 and $50 for a half-bottle). Luckily, you don’t need much to set your taste buds on fire. Jackson-Triggs Vidal Icewine 2007 hails from Canada and is completely different from most wines you’ve tried. Fresh tropical aromas of papaya and mango, as well as apricot, fill your glass with a huge mouth-filling flavor that lingers. Try a bottle with fruit, cheese, your favorite homemade dessert—perhaps this month’s beignets—and, if you can find any, foie gras. You won’t be disappointed. —Richard Righton Local Restauranteur

kaua’i Island Time

by Jennifer Dunham Starr Photography by Jennifer and Cory Starr


he oldest of the Hawaiian Islands, Kaua’i is known as the Garden Isle. With a reputation for lush rainforests, spectacular waterfalls and the friendliest residents in Hawaii, Kaua’i is an easy choice for an island-getaway like no other.

CENTRALLY LOCATED: Where to Stay Major vacation spots in Kaua’i include Poipu in the south and Princeville in the north. The western Napali coastline roads don’t allow access from north to south, requiring visitors to travel the long way around to each. Wanting to explore the entire island on my recent visit, I opted to stay somewhere more centrally located: Marriott’s Kaua’i Beach Club in Lihue. As expected, the Beach Club’s room was nice and clean, but besides location, the hotel’s enormous 26,000-square-foot swimming pool was a highlight not to miss. Typical morning adventures culminated with lounging at the pool each afternoon. Shady cabanas located poolside fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve early. Mornings were delightfully quiet, as I often had the entire pool to myself while swimming laps before breakfast. Lihue is the governmental and commercial hub of the island, so it can get a bit congested with traffic at commute hours. Avoiding these times or taking the back roads is recommended. Home to Kaua’i’s main airport, the Beach Club is a mere five minutes away; rest assured, however, as I didn’t hear a single plane from my room. Lihue also boasts Nawiliwili Harbor, the island’s major commercial shipping center and cruise port. I watched ships come into Kalapaki Bay from the balcony of my room with the dramatic Haupu Mountains set as the Marriott Beach Club backdrop. View of the Napali coast from helicopter


Living Foods Market and Café

56 - September 2013

Founded in November of 1916 by Denjiro Ota, and now run by his great-grandson, Tip Top Motel Café & Bakery has been serving the people of Kaua’i for more than 85 years. With such amazing food, including their famous banana/macadamia pancakes and local cuisine such as oxtail soup, I returned four times during my stay. Make sure to order the fried rice with breakfast and arrive early—it gets busy with locals. Living Foods Market and Café is a healthy dining alternative featuring the island’s largest selection of organic, sustainable and locally grown produce (comparable to Whole Foods). Located in the Kukui’ula Village on the South Shore, they even make fresh breads (including gluten free options). Preferring to end most days back at the Marriott pool, I didn’t stray far for dinner. With Duke’s Barefoot Bar mere steps from the hotel, you’ll find happy hour from 4-6 p.m. daily, live local music and $3 Taco Tuesdays. Locals and tourists flock here so be sure to arrive early. I sampled almost everything on the menu, but the highlight was the kalua pork sandwich. Other delicious items included the Korean street tacos, calamari, cashew chicken


TOP 5 HIT LIST: What to Do 1. Beaches. Some of the lesser-known beaches promise a more relaxing experience (arriving early before locals may even find you alone on the pristine sand). Maha’ulepu (south) and Polihale (west) were two of my favorites; SUVs or Jeeps are recommended, as the roads can be formidable to rental cars. 2. Jack Harter Helicopters. Riding in the Hughes 500 birds with the doors off and the wind in your hair, as you tour the Napali coastline and spectacular canyons—16 miles of cliffs rising 4,000 feet, harboring lush valleys and innumerable waterfalls—was an unforgettable experience.

3. Waimea Canyon. Known as “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” the Waimea Canyon sparkles like jewels in reds and greens, as it covers the dramatic ridges and deep ravines shaped over centuries by Mother Nature’s hands. Trails beckon as they extend in every direction for hikes of varying lengths.

4. Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse. This 52-foot tall historical lighthouse, built in 1913, once boasted a 9,000-pound Fresnel lens—one of the largest

stir-fry, and beet salad. After resolving to sample as many sugary drinks by the pool as possible, I found my favorite of the trip at Duke’s: El Patron “da original,” made with freshly squeezed limes. 58 - September 2013

5. Waterfalls. One can’t visit Kaua’i and not see Waihua Falls, the famous waterfall featured in the television show Fantasy Island. Just as spectacular and easy to visit is Opaeka’a Falls. Across the street from the viewing area is a panoramic view of the confluence of the Wailua River. Both falls are located off of Highway 56 on the west side of the island.

introducing Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? I’m in the business of helping people plan for their future. As a financial planner, my responsibilities are to assess where my clients are succeeding, where they can use improvement, and then implement a strategy to achieve their goals. I started investing in college and once I found out that I could help people invest for a living, everything else seemed to fall into place. What life accomplishments are you most proud of? I recently became a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®), which is among the highest designations I can have in my industry. Only 17 percent of people who call themselves financial advisors are CFP® professionals. The other two accomplishments I’m most proud of are being a husband and father. Who is your role model in business or in life, and why? My dad—he ran his own law firm for 37 years and taught me two very important Peter Ashby lessons in business. Firstly, that there is always room at the top if you work hard and continue to educate yourself. Secondly, he showed me that character and integrity matter above everything else. Adams Ashby What’s your biggest job perk? Financial Advisors Independence. Being independent from any company or product gives me the 967 Reserve Drive freedom put my clients’ interests in the forefront of my decision-making process. Roseville Where do you and your family go locally to have fun? 916-740-1116 We love to use the city’s bike trails and playgrounds. I also organize and play on many recreational sports teams at Mahaney Field and Maidu Park. And finally, customer service is…? Communication. Every successful relationship is based on how well you communicate. I set high expectations and then strive to deliver above and beyond what is expected.

72 - September 2013

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? Simply put, my business is helping others. I learned long ago the positive difference I could make in a child’s life when I volunteered in a classroom. Since that realization, I’ve dedicated my professional career to making a difference in people’s lives. What life accomplishments are you most proud of? Being a good father. My children mean so much to me, and the happiness and joy they bring me makes the hard work worth it. Who is your role model in business or in life, and why? My role models are my parents. They have shown me love and support that I wish every child could experience. They also provide a wonderful example of what makes a marriage work; they’ll be celebrating their 42nd anniversary soon. Where do you go when the going gets tough? I go to my wife. The support and guidance she has given me is priceless. She is someone I can count on to be honest, even when honesty may be hard to hear, and supportive to whatever decision I make. Her strength and determination inspire me to be my best. What’s your biggest job perk? Knowing that I made a positive difference in someone’s life. Whether it be helping a couple through marital difficulties, helping a person work through depression, or assisting a child in managing their anger. Helping others brings a satisfaction that makes a difficult job worth it. And finally, customer service is…? Customer service in therapy is helping a family or individual in identifying a goal they would like to accomplish and how to best meet that goal. Therapy is providing the vehicle for that person to make that positive change in their life.

Describe your business. My business offers small-group personal training classes designed for all fitness levels at an affordable price. How are you involved with both the community and your customer? I’m a member of the Roseville and Rocklin Chambers of Commerce, and I also like to volunteer at community events. What life accomplishments are you most proud of? Receiving my kinesiology degree in exercise science from CSUS; also, being a part of a PBS documentary about childhood obesity and eating disorders. Who is your role model in business or in life, and why? Definitely my parents—they are amazing people and have helped me so much over the years by raising me with good morals and always encouraging me to do great things. Brandon Daniel What’s your biggest job perk? Being able to control my own schedule and set my own hours is nice. What’s All The Way Fit more, I get to meet some amazing people and help transform their health in ways they 3031 Foothills Boulevard often can’t imagine. Suite 130 What’s your favorite local event that you go to? Roseville I really enjoy when I get a team together for a local 5K. They are great causes and it’s 916-715-6156 nice to build that camaraderie with my clients. If you could be any other profession, what would it be? I would be a musician, if I could sing. I love music and being able to express myself verbally. I’ve always had a lot of respect for singers/songwriters. And finally, customer service is…? Being friendly, well mannered and able to help someone as a professional.

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? I once managed a store selling all kinds of products for organizing. Customers would come in and buy products but often came back asking how to get organized! Getting organized is so much more than simply putting things in bins. One day, I took a leap of faith and started my business helping other people organize. How are you involved with both the community and your customer? I’m a member of the Roseville Chamber of Commerce; as well, I’ve served as an ambassador, ambassador chair and co-chair for many committees including Ignite, a young professionals group. I’ve also served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for Placer County. I work with clients and members of the community to help them with time management, organizing, and behavior modification skills to make their life easier. It’s about changing behaviors that have proven to be detrimental and haven’t worked in the past, and implementing systems that will serve them instead. It’s never about the “stuff.” If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why? Definitely Jesus. Whether you’re a Christian or not, Jesus, arguably, was one person in history who made a global impact in His short life. What’s your favorite local event that you go to? Ignite’s Winter Bash and Roseville Chamber’s SPLASH event. What’s your favorite local business other than your own? Mission Carpet Care. If you could be any other profession, what would it be? A crime scene investigator (CSI)—I’m very good with details! And finally, customer service is…? The ability to identify your clients’ specific needs with integrity and respect, then design and implement a plan that will exceed their expectations—all without compromising your own values.

express yourself Starving Artists Feed the World by Tom Mailey

74 - September 2013

a couple of things. One, that artists can be weird. Hey, the late great Bob Ross himself once said, “People might look at you a bit funny, but it’s okay. Artists are allowed to be a bit different.” And that leads to number two: Weirdness is okay. It’s what enables artists to see things differently than the rest of us; it allows them to flip the ordinary and shows the world—or just to those on an art walk—a potentially new and revealing point of view. It may not be a perspective we agree with and it may not be something we can even identify, but if it makes us think, gets us talking, strikes an emotional chord or sparks some sort of visceral, intellectual or sentimental reaction, then it’s done its

job, hasn’t it? In a way, we’re all artists, clove cigarettes or not. It’s just that, as we grew up, most of us forgot how. In a great online essay recently, comedian Ricky Gervais wrote about the importance of play as a catalyst for real creativity. “Everything I’ve ever written, created or discovered artistically,” he said, “has come out of playing.” For an edgy comedian like Gervais, he likely means play literally. But in a broader sense, it’s being able to let your imagination ramble and roam, something that’s easy as a kid, not so much as you get older. “You have to let yourself go to be creative,” Gervais says. “Children possess this quality but then seem to lose it as they are told, ‘it’s not the done thing.’” So I say, let’s hear it for artists—the real, the aspiring, and the one inside each of us. Let’s hear it for those who hang onto their childhood imagination, quirks and all, and in the process have made the world a far more interesting place...ever since the first one took a piece of charcoal from a cold fire pit and scrawled a woolly mammoth on a big cave wall centuries ago—quite possibly while listening to a Neanderthal version of The Cure.

ack in the ’80s, while in college, I briefly dated an art major. In fact, my time with Cathy compelled me to go through an “artist phase.” At the time I thought I was doing it because I had finally met someone who revealed to me the banality of existence and the superficiality of society. In retrospect, I admit it was only to give myself a better chance of seeing her easel...if you know what I mean. I got a hoop earring with a cross dangling from it. I started wearing a frayed, old army jacket from a secondhand store. I let my mullet grow long, and moussed my hair with cynicism and apathy. I may have let her briefly talk me into wearing eyeliner (reminder: It was the ‘80s). I became immediately dismissive of anything that smacked of “the establishment,” even though I had no idea what “the establishment” meant. Meanwhile, as I discreetly hid my Phil Collins cassettes, we drank cheap wine, smoked clove cigarettes and “enjoyed” The Cure on my dorm room boom box. In short, I became unbearable. It didn’t help that I had no discernible creative ability or eye for art. In fact, our relationship began to fall apart when I casually remarked that a wire sculpture of hers, which—I soon learned—represented the holistic healing properties of the infinite universe, looked to me like a badly damaged hamster cage. I never did get to check out her easel. But being around her did teach me
