M A K I N G ‘ T H E B AY ’ You know the first thing I had said to the models was, “If you’re late, do NOT show up on set!” So when they asked me what time they were starting and I said “5:30AM,” they all laughed at me, doing a double take and asking again, “No SL, really what time?” So of course I placed my hands on the conference room table and quietly, yet assertively said “5:30am.” The models knew I was serious and from that point on, the notebooks came out, making notes feverishly into their smart phones and laptops came next, followed by a slew of other questions like; “Will we be doing our own makeup?” “Will there be food?” “How long do you think the shoot will take?” I outlined out the shoot, every detail, every hour, every look, prop and shot selection. On the day of, precise like military, my shoot routine goes off! My alarm clock beckons for me to get out of bed at 4am. I shower, brush my teeth, throw on my clothes and start moving my equipment to the front door so that I can start packing my car. I had my camera on my back, batteries charged and lenses polished. I was really excited where this was concerned cause I;d just acquired my dream lens, the NIKKOR 70200mm f2.8 telephoto lens, and for those of you who are not camera literate, this is a Mercedes Benz of lens and I was about to take it for its first drive. We got to the location, 5:20 to be exact and I met cars at the gate of the beach home. Once we got inside, I was playing parking attendant, directing everyone how and where to park their cars. My hair stylist had arrived, my assistants had arrived and by 5:30am, 95% of the models we accounted for…not bad at all, not bad at all!

Once the beauty station was set up, I directed the girls to their section of the home and likewise the guys. The sun had just begun to rise and everyone seemed up and ready to take on the day. The shoot started about 9, after hair and make-up of course and it was great from the jump. From the very first shot, frame after frame, the modesl came prepared and it reflected in the images I was seeing in my camera. The day moved smoothed, sounds of dance/ house & hip hop playing in the background. Those models whose turn it was not, were watching TV, talking with each other or snacking on the food that everyone brought. Speaking of food, by about 1pm that afternoon, we breaked to eat lunch. Our hair stylist Cashera had her cousin come down and grill some chicken for everyone, Fit that with some corn on the cob, bread rolls and salad and we had a lunch fit for…KINGS? Well, to end things there as my mouth waters, the rest of the day wetn great. Shooting the models was a lot of fun. It was easy, free flowing and most of all, I got countless frames that I thought were great for this issue. If you wanna see how ‘The Bay’ was made.

CHEF SIMEON HALL

30

JULY 2011


The Blanket transformed from a tablecloth to a bedspread as they recovered from the intoxicating lunch they just devoured. It was their intention to leave right after dining, but nestled in his arms on this secluded beach, she couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. This was more than the “itis” - this was true comfort. This was safety and security. This was love. The picnic of BBQ ribs, three-bean salad and grilled bread was a delight. But the coup de grâce was simply being in this moment. The book that she had given him – 30 Recipes Every Man should prepare for His Woman - did not allude to the possible side effects that these recipes could have on those on the receiving end. And to think she had 29 more to go!! Her smile deepened as she looked up at her “chef!”

1. Never ever boil meats for the grill. To pre-cook use a low oven temperature. 2. When marinating meats always ensure that the ratio of oil to the remaining ingredients is not too much or too little. Too much will cause excess flame and too little will cause meats to stick to the grill. 3. Never marinate meats or fish in citrus marinades for more than one hour. 4. Meats that require longer cooking times are not suitable for the grill. Top rounds, chuck roasts, lamb chops, etc. require wet cooking to tenderize. 5. Always make extra ribs because you will want more! 6. Remember support local farmers and fishermen!

BBQ Ribs w/ Three Bean Salad For this recipe you will need a charcoal grill, a blanket and a full picnic set up. Select two of best pork ribs available at your favorite supermarket. You will need ¼ cup of each ingredient - brown sugar, regular sugar, kosher salt, cayenne paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Plus 1 cup of paprika. Mix until evenly blended. Generously cover the racks and placed in an oven dish with a ¼ cup of water and bake for two hours at 230 °F. Never, EVER boil ribs! Remove from heat and refrigerate overnight. For sauce add one tin of guava shells, pureed to 3 cups of Cattlemen’s® BBQ sauce (highly recommended by the Chef) and 4 oz of butter. Reserve for grilling with a BBQ brush. For the three-bean salad, travel to Goodfellows market or similar and purchase ½ pound of seasonal assorted green beans. You can substitute tomatoes, fresh corn kernels and squash for the recipe. In a food processor, blend two farm eggs, juice from a ½ lemon, 4 sprigs of cilantro, ½ cup of blue cheese chunks, ¼ cup sour cream, 1 garlic clove, a sprig of thyme and 1 cup of high quality EVOO. This salad is a raw salad that delivers all of the nutrients of the seasonal vegetables used - so it can be dressed at the last minute. Wash and clean the selected vegetables and reserve with one cup of the freshly made dressing for the picnic. For the grilled bread, use your choice of your favorite fresh baked or European bread. Slice ½ inch thick and dress with EVOO. For the perfect grill, light up one hour before use and allow the ashes and smoke to settle before grilling the ribs. Baste ribs constantly with guava BBQ sauce until the “bark”, this is the burnt edges, is too your liking! For the salad, toss cleaned beans gently in dressing. Toast the bread on the grill. Serve and enjoy. We hoped you enjoyed this article. Let us know what dishes you www.stylezinemagazine.com want Chef to create in the next issue. Tweet us @stylezine and let us know your opinion!

Ajayi Bodden

Hometown: Kingston, Jamaica Sign? Aquarius Do I kiss on the first date? Kissing on the first date isn’t again my religion. But on a serious note, I don’t have a problem with kissing a girl I’m attracted to. I kissed on my last first date. Fav celeb to be stuck with? MEGAN GOOD. (can I attach a photo?lol) My #1 turnon: Well...it definately has to be appearance so i could firstly be attracted. Apart from personal preferences appearance-wise(because details are vast). i like how well a female can express her feelings or ideas in general. Makes me feel good to know i could have a deeper level of conversation. .

Do I kiss on the first date? Yes. If she aint kissable, we aint goin out in the first place! Tell us something we don’t know about you? I really like to cook and clean.

First reaction to being selected for The Bay? Honestly... I’m one of the hottest dudes in the country so i kinda expected it. I was still excited though.

THROUGH THE EYES OF A MAN

JAMAL ‘ SMITTY FROM THE CITY’SMITH

Ok Ladies it is time for some honesty. We are sick and tired of being sick and tired (role reversal sounds like a female right?) We know that your girl keisha, shanell and kiki utter the same thing over and overrr again “You Look Good Gal” everytime you ask the for some advice on your beach wardrobe. You could have on a garbage bag accented with a Kentruck fry chicken bucket hat accesory but you still “Look Good Gal” so from a man’s point of view im going to risk my safety and give you a few points  to help you out on the beach .   1. Election was 3 years ago. Ladies please we are tired of seeing the PLP, FNM shirts and tights down to your ankles its the beach ladies come on give us a break your not in the 30’s bloomers are dead.   2. Satin Caps seriously when that big wave hit ya lil “bangs” under that sating caps there will be more curlers than sand on that beach please get it together have your hair “outdoor ready” please.   3. ‘Smedium’ bathing suits.  Honey if your little god-daughter could fit in the bathing suit does not mean you can too its not a one size fit all sorry. Rolls hanging over like Kelly’s bakery is not flattering.   4. Speaking of rolls now ladies come on a

few sit-ups some jogging and keeping it tight will do wonders get the “bamboo shack” without the fries and shine on the beach. 5. Lastly my dear sweet women (notice that I have to start off nice) please make cocoa butter your friend.  We dont need to see every single bullet wound , stab mark.  If your skin stretching more than Lebron before the NBA finals then please give Palmers or Johnson & Johnson a call.   #imjustsaying Lets be honest.

JAMES McKINNEY & D’ANGELO CHARLTON PRESENT

{DEAR SUMMER} Dear Summer, You ain’t had to diss me, Just cause I switched from Converse and Dickies, Got myself some style and a little bit of swagger, But they way you did me dirty felt like you cut my heart with a dagger, All those kinky pics you sent me, It cut me to my core to see you wearing his Nike’s, Rockin his J’s, Then trying to tell me he just a “friend”, It was when you said that I knew that this was the end, The end of my fairytale, Then end of what I thought was a perfect love, Me and you fit together like hand and glove, Or so I thought, my mind tend to drift, On the old times rockin classics with my number one chick, Listening to Fresh Prince, oh yeah it’s summertime, Sometimes I looked down and your ‘Kickz’ was fresher than mine, Now you tellin me I’m holdin’ you back, got you like a nose all stuffy, Said you leavin’ me for some cat named Muffy, I thought at first you had crossed over and joined that other team, Then I remembered my homie told me a while ago he wanted to get his “Conchience”clean, said he ain’t meant to take my Summer, but I was being too selfish with her, I can’t believe my Summer leavin’ me for my n*gga, As I put on a fresh pair wipe my tears and say ëff this..”, I can’t help but say to myself...”Summer...I love you. You B&%$.

{DEAR SUMMER} You really do the most! Did you have to forward me a copy of dude’s email to you?! That’s real trifling sweetheart but I must admit it is very funny. How cute of him to make his letter rhyme like the Jay-Z song…aww real precious, SIKE!! I mean he is a bully and all, but I swear seeing you in a fresh pair of White and Cement 3’s just did it to me. The night you told him you were sick, ditched your heels for your white/varsity red 12’s to cuddle on the couch and watch Entourage with me is one of my best memories to date. Maybe if ole boy didn’t decide to switch his style up with all those weird kicks he’d still be straight. As for us, I’m attaching the picture my boy snapped of us outside the movies the other night of us in our matching 11’s. I better watch out or you kick game just might be better than mine. I’m also sending you back that picture you sent me wearing my Jordan jersey, let me know if you like it. Anyhow, I really feel you shouldn’t leave him, I don’t mind being second place because even second place has a whole lot to prove. Especially when I know what to do…

>HEAVY ROTATION :: WORTH A LISTEN

REVOLVER T-PAIN

It’s Summer once again! Time to go out and make your beach trips and enjoy all that summer has to offer, and what would summer be without the right soundtrack to your every summer adventure. If your trying to keep it hype and crazy for your summer, T-Pain’s “Prevolver The Mixtape” is where it’s at to take you along your journey and to help keep it all the way live. The tape is thirty tracks of excitement to propel your summer and beaching experience to the heights it needs to be at. Pain keeps it coming proper with tracks like “You Can’t See Me” to keep your beach and Bar-Bar-Q parties at their ‘hypest’. “Big Man” Featuring Tity Boi & “Hit Em Wit It” featuring Severe are mixtape favorites. Keep tracks like these playing and its definitely gonna be a summer to remember. Feature artists like Field Mob, Lil Wayne, One Chance, Tay Dizm & Brisco help pain make this summer banger right.

If you’re just looking to chill, possibly with that special someone, then Jagged Edge recently dropped a mixtape just for you. Well, maybe not just for you, but it’ll sure feel that way once you hit play on Jagged Edge’s “Love Potion: The Remedy Mixtape” this summer. The tape is the prequel to Jagged Edge’s new album “The Remedy”, hence the name of the mixtape. Tracks included on the tape are smooth and sensual when need be and easy to just relax to. JE drops a few snippets of tracks on the new album and puts some old classics like “Promise” & “Let’s Get Married” on there incase you forgot where they came from as a group. There’s also a few tracks that won’t be on the album that you haven’t heard, but they’re all pretty much mood setters. So if you want the mood set right for your summer escapades, then just throw this tape on, sit back, relax & watch the magic happen. Enjoy the music, enjoy the summer.
