‘‘

Chef Jaime Nieves-Flores

Unpretentiously great’

food

Chef Jaime Nieves-Flores is a true Chilango — a native of Ciudad de México. He was born and raised in Mexico City, where he lived until he was 25 years old.

24

But little did I know back then that I would become a professional chef. I thought I would be a lawyer or an accountant.”

He grew up surrounded by the aromas and flavors of food, in the business of making and selling it.

Nieves-Flores moved to New Mexico in the ‘80s. It was “pure curiosity” that led him to the Land of Enchantment.

“My mother had a fonda, a little restaurant, and my father owned a deli,” he said. “I would see all the daily activities around food, and I loved them, particularly the communal part of the process.

“I would hear people talk about New Mexico and wondered about it,” he said. “Being from Mexico, I decided to find out what the ‘new’ one was like. After I moved here, I’ve never looked back.”

d i n i n g o u t s u m m e r / fa l l 2 0 16


Nieves-Flores started working in an Albuquerque restaurant as a dish washer — “just like most people in this business,” he said — and gradually moved up.

He was also attracted by the diverse Taos culinary scene.

for The Gorge.

“Here, you can find everything from old, classic Northern New Mexico dishes to innovative New “I was a line cook, a kitchen man- American cuisine,” he said. “So ager, a sous chef, an executive many options and flavors. There chef and finally became a coris something for everybody, and porate chef with Sysco Foods,” that’s the beauty of it.” he said. “I was fortunate enough After his arrival at The Gorge, to work with many great chefs, Nieves-Flores went through evrestaurant owners, business ery single item on the menu and owners and a vast majority of the tried all the recipes, lending them restaurants in the state of New a personal touch. Mexico. It was very educational.” “Everybody has a different take, His job at that time was to even for the most true and tried introduce neWw items to chefs recipes,” he said. “I changed some and managers and help them ingredients, adjusted the ratios develop menus and implement and balanced the food to make more efficient systems in the it as appealing as possible to our restaurants. patrons – not only in terms of “I also helped them become taste, but also presentation.” more aware of the new trends in Being of a creative nature, he the ever-changing restaurant insoon started adding new dishes dustry,” he said. “It was a rewardto the menu. ing job, and I learned many skills about food and management, “First, I wanted to create items which I am applying today.” that our local community could enjoy and identify with,” he said. He attended the Culinary Insti“It was all about experimentation. tute of America at Greystone, Before a dish became officially Santa Elena, where he took a part of our menu, I would try it number of seminars and workas a special. And I made sure to shops. listen to what our patrons had to Back in Albuquerque, he worked say about it.” at Seasons, The Artichoke Café, An example is a carne adovada Scalo and The Cooperage, dish that he created among other restaurants. especially In 2011, Kevin and Keith Roessler renovated the former Ogelvie’s Taos Grill and Bar and turned it into The Gorge. Nieves-Flores had worked for them before, so in 2014, they invited him to be the restaurant’s executive chef and consultant.

“It began as a plate, and it is still served like that, but then a client said,‘This is very good, but if it were a burrito, it would be awesome.’ I thought it was a wonderful idea, so now we have both: the burrito and the carne adovada plate.” He describes the current menu at The Gorge as “unpretentiously great.” “It is high-quality food,” he said. “Many people don’t know that we prepare most of our dishes from scratch. I have an amazing group here, a great staff that has been learning along with me all this time.” Nieves-Flores has collaborated with several celebrity chefs. One of them is Robert Irvine, from Food Network’s “Restaurant: Impossible.” “It was a fun and rewarding experience,” he said. “There is something he told me that I’d never forget: ‘The food should be so good that it makes you want to dance.’ I totally agree with him; that is exactly the sense of satisfaction that I want to transmit with my dishes.”

“I’ve had a long business andpersonal relationship with Kevin and Keith, and I admire them a lot,” he said. “Besides, I had been in Taos several times and felt the call of the mountain, like so many people. I immediately said ‘yes.’”

Taos Farmers Market vendors and habitual customers will readily point to the booth manned by Frank and Nancy Zinno when asked about a place to buy scones and coffee. “Not just regular ones, but the best scones in Taos,” says Mariah Arencibia, who comes from Valdez every Saturday to buy a half dozen from them. Frank and Nancy Zinno, owners of ‘Z Best’ Scones, met in Santa Fe in the late ‘80s. They got married and moved to Taos to build an Earthship and establish their massage business — they became licensed massage therapists in 1992. “But there came a time, in 1997, when we needed some extra money and thought about baking scones,” Frank Zinno said. “We started with a couple of accounts in Taos and in a few months we were selling them to Alfalfa’s and Whole Foods in Santa Fe, and several local coffee shops.” Soon, the business took on a life of its own. The couple opened a brick-and-mortar store called ‘Z Best Café’ in the John Dunn Shop plaza but later decided to focus on Taos and Los Alamos farmers markets. Sweet things Nancy Zinno grew up in a bakery. “I guess baking is in my blood,” she said, laughing. “I’ve always enjoyed sweet things.”

Her family didn’t make scones, but she treasured some recipes they later used in their business. “We couldn’t find any scones like the ones we wanted to make so we went through a lot of testing,” Frank Zinno said. “We had to get the right combination of flour, butter and other ingredients, like the orange zest and the rising agent. We needed to try everything at first.” No wonder they both gained weight during those initial stages. Frank admits he was up to 240 pounds at one time. Now, he is down to a comfortable and healthy 175 pounds. “Then we found out we were sensitive to wheat,” he said, “and we started to use a white organic spelt flour that was lower in gluten.” They now use organic flour from Costilla as well as spelt flour, plus local ingredients when available, such as peaches, apples, raspberries, apricots, pears, peppers, green chile and corn. Sweet & savory Frank and Nancy Zinno have created 16 different varieties of scones. Three are savory and the rest are sweet. “The breakfast sausage scone is our newest creation,” she said. “It has become quite popular. We also have lemon raspberry, lemon blueberry, cinnamon walnut, chocolate and many more.”

Every week, they bake from 18 to 20 dozens. That means around 240 scones, which are often sold before noon. Unlike many other vendors, they do not offer samples to their clients. “We tell people, ‘If you are not satisfied after your first bite, we will give you your money back,’” Frank Zinno said. “In all these years, no one has ever asked for a refund.” Love through thick & thin The couple has been married 22 years. “The key ingredient of having the business work is our commitment,” he said. “We really enjoy each other’s company. We built two businesses and a house, all by ourselves. We have been through thick and thin and our commitment to our spirit has made it work.” “Yes, we are together constantly,” she agreed. “It can be challenging at times, but it is very rewarding.” “You just have to get rid of the small stuff, the little I, the ego, and breathe,” he said. They also share responsibilities. Frank Zinno has a background in accounting and auditing, so he can do their bookkeeping and taxes. “That helps a lot,” he said. They usually bake on Fridays at Taos County Economic Development Corp’s 5,000-squarefoot commercial kitchen that provides a space to work for many enterprising cooks and bakers in town. “On Fridays, we spend from four to five hours there,”

he said. “The next morning we got up at 5 a.m. so we can be at the market at 6:30 a.m. and have everything ready. These are two intense workdays.” Though the couple enjoys their work, it takes a lot of energy. They currently have one helper, and have had two in the past. “But we aren’t getting any younger,” Frank Zinno said. “So are considering the options of selling the business or finding

an investor, a business partner that we could work with. It would also be a way to ease into our retirement.” They have a lot of recipes and a wealth of knowledge, plus a loyal clientele. “This is a fun, sweet and profitable business which has made us happy and selfsufficient so I hope to find the right person to entrust with it,” he said. “If it is you, call me!” To geT in conTacT wiTh Frank and nancy Zinno, call 575-741-8288 or Find Them aT The Taos Farmers markeT every saTurday From 8 To noon.

DrinK DeeP

training the vine for better wine Story By MoLLy SteinBach

I’ve realized recently that I don’t know nearly as much about wine grape cultivation as I’d like to. I’m certainly a proponent of the saying, “Great wine is made in the vineyard,” and I know a little about what elements are important for growing good-quality grapes, but there are a number of fundamental components of viticulture that I have yet to explore. And, lucky you, you’re going to benefit from my attempts to remedy this situation. It turns out that a very critical consideration is vine training. On its own, a grapevine will latch onto and climb anything it touches: walls, trees, you if you stand still long enough. But the shape of the vine can be manipulated to best suit the vineyard and the grape grower. Vines can be trained to provide the right timing and amount of sunlight to leaves and grapes; to ensure that enough air can flow around the grape bunches to prevent rot from taking hold; to optimize access for maintenance and harvesting; and to protect from extreme climatic conditions, such as high heat or wind. Because a survey of the many different training systems would not only be impractical for this article, but also extremely tedious, I’ve chosen to focus on three examples, ones which clearly illustrate the ways in which vine training is used in accordance with the needs of the vine and the vigneron.

68

d i n i n g o u t s u m m e r / fa l l 2 0 16


On the Greek island of Santorini, grape growers use a unique training system in which, as the vine grows, it is wound into a freestanding basket shape, low to the ground, with the grape clusters on the inside. This shape, called a koulara or sometimes an ambelie, allows the leaves to shield the growing grapes from the intense heat, sunlight and strong winds endemic to the island. The mainstay of Santorini’s wine industry is a native white grape, Assyrtiko. Naturally high in acid, with the help of the koulara, it is able to maintain its structure despite the powerful heat of its environment. (Higher heat tends to speed ripening, and as grapes ripen, they lose acidity.) 2013 D. Kourtakis Assyrtiko Santorini Greek Wine Cellars ($19) is a medium-bodied white wine with plenty of acidity to enliven its creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of ripe pear, apricot and lemon zest mingle with a chalky minerality for a multi-layered flavor. Given that the grapes were grown within a stone’s throw of the sea, it’s no surprise that this wine pairs beautifully with a range of seafood. An extreme environment of another kind in Germany’s Mosel region requires a completely different type of vine training. The precipitously steep slopes plunging down toward the Mosel River are terraced with rows of vines trained in a heart-shaped system called the Mosel Arch. Because of the vertiginous inclines, machinery cannot be used, and manual work in these vineyards is inherently difficult and dangerous. The Mosel Arch allows vineyard workers easier access to grape bunches for maintenance and harvesting.

2013 St. Urbans-Hof Riesling QbA Mosel “Urban” ($15) is an inexpensive example of the beauty of Mosel wines. Though the region is very cool, grapes ripen with the help of sunlight reflected off the surface of the river and retained in porous slate on the ground. Sweet floral aromas of honeysuckle and clover blend with candied citrus flavors and refreshing acidity in this off-dry white. I paired it with a spicy fish stew, and it was a heavenly match, but it could easily serve as an aperitif, or an accompaniment to a variety of mild cheeses. On Santorini and in the Mosel, the training systems described have been used for hundreds of years. Sometimes, however, new developments allow grape growers to decide between staying faithful to a traditional training system, or opting for a new system that has not historically been used in their region. In northeastern Italy, the traditional tendone system (the training of vines on an overhead pergola) is expensive to build and maintain, and it encourages a dense canopy of leaves that can lead to vine diseases. Many producers are opting for the Guyot system, developed in the mid19th century. It is one of the least complicated and easiest to maintain training systems, and it is used all over the world. One producer opting for the non-traditional Guyot system is Allegrini. Although they have been making wine for more than four centuries, they are certainly not stuck in the past. 2011 Allegrini Veronese La Grola ($30) is a blend of Corvina and Oseleta from the vineyard where, legend has it, the Corvina grape was “born.” When you first open the bottle, the wine is rather tight with little fruit detectable, though it has loads of toasted fennel and caraway seeds, leather and granite for character. As the wine breathes, however, lovely black cherry, currant and dark chocolate aromas emerge, making for an elegantly balanced, well-structured accompaniment to any hearty meal. Vine training, in itself, may not seem all that interesting or important, but the ways in which the vine can be manipulated to best serve the grape and the grower is not only remarkable, but vital to the quality of the finished wine we enjoy.
