PROFILE

WITH ROBERT NAUMOVSKI BIRTHPLACE

GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS

Toronto.

I know it sounds like a cliché, but I feel my greatest achievement has been to have been a good father and husband to my Family. My wife and I have raised 3 wonderful daughters who are strong, independent young women.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Oakville.

BUSINESS Suds Launderette.

16

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA


BACKGROUND AND CAREER HIGHLIGHT: I am a 1st generation Canadian, born to parents that immigrated to Canada from former Yugoslavia. I have 1 older Brother. I was in a family Business for 25 Years before we sold that business. During that time we learned to separate family matters from business ones which is difficult to do, but crucial to the success of a family business. Started up Suds Launderette because my best friend and business partner and I saw that there was a real gap in the Coin laundry business. Most Laundromats are typically pretty sketchy places. They are usually dark, dirty with very poor customer service. We asked ourselves, “Why is that?” The answer is that there is no reason for that. It is a choice that many owners of these businesses choose to run their stores that way because they feel the clientele does not care about the condition of their store. Our philosophy is that a customer needs to be treated with respect and our store needs to be as clean as possible. If your business is clean, you treat people with respect, and you do what you say you are going to do, they will come.

WHAT IS ONE THING THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU? My dog Bru and I, are volunteers with the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. Every week we go to the Walden Circle Retirement home to visit with the residents.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND WHY? My dad inspires me. I still to this day wonder what it was like to leave your home country to come to a foreign land where you don’t speak the language or know the culture. Remember, this was at a time (early 1960’s) when there were no social services or programs in place to help new immigrants. You truly had to survive. He was able to raise a family and build a successful business and life for all of us. I think that the “don’t quit, work hard and smart work ethic” has been really important for me.

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN AND BY WHOM?

FUN FACTS • Our family pet, BRU, is our 5 year old Leonberger (Google it) and weighs 150lbs. • I enjoy activities such as TENNIS, SKIING and CYCLING

The best advice I have been given, is “don’t quit”. Many people are afraid to take that first step because they are worried about the “what if it does not work”. It’s ok to fail. Failure is a great way to learn. With Suds we made lots of mistakes, but we watched and listened to our suppliers, competition and customers and made adjustments to our business.

IF THE WHOLE COMMUNITY WERE LISTENING, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM? If whole community were listening I would say, CARE. Care about your community. This is where you live - help out however you can. We are all busy with our lives but there is no reason why everyone can’t do their own thing to help out the community. Whether that is picking up a piece of garbage on the street, shopping at your local business or just saying hello to someone on the street as you walk by. It all adds up. You may not see any immediate results from what you do, but over time, you will start to see the positive changes.

DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE

THE ONE & ONLY

CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST

SERVING SIZE: Makes 12 NOTE: If I don’t have buttermilk, I mix the milk and lemon juice and let stand for 5 minutes, and voila... buttermilk!

WITH TOMATO, BASIL, SPINACH & SMOKED MOZZARELLA

Makes: 8 large pieces

Most of us have seen or eaten (or tried to make) cauliflower pizza crusts, mostly yielding unsuccessful results. They don’t taste great and definitely do not resemble pizza at all. You can stop at this one! You will most likely fool the pizza lovers at your table. It even picks up like pizza! You can make this completely gluten-free if you swap the spelt flour for a gluten-free flour such as chickpea flour, gluten-free oat flour or an all-purpose gluten-free flour.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

• • • • • • • •

Preheat oven to 500˚F and place the oven rack on the second from the lowest position. Heat a cast iron flat top sheet or a cookie sheet (lined with foil if you wish) in the oven as it preheats.

1 small cauliflower, florets only, 4 finely riced level cups* 1/2 cup (60gm) spelt flour (or any flour you like) 1/2 cup (40gm) almond meal/flour 1 egg, beaten 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp kosher salt 1/2 cup (60-65gm) finely grated mozzarella cheese 2 tbsp olive oil

STE P 02

Measure 4 cups of riced cauliflower* in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, stopping halfway to toss. When cool enough to handle, squeeze the liquid out of the cauliflower using paper towels. Allow the cauliflower to cool a little before adding the egg and cheese.

Add the two flours, salt, garlic powder and stir well. Add the egg and cheese and work the dough with your hands so that it is all evenly distributed.

1 cup shredded smoked mozzarella 12 cherry tomatoes, quartered handful of spinach 10 basil leaves torn *to “rice” the cauliflower, place the florets in the food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse the cauliflower until it resembles rice.

STE P 04

Carefully remove the sheet from the oven, place it down on a heatproof surface. Brush the sheet with the olive oil. Spread the cauliflower mixture in a large oval, making a lip, like a “pizza crust edge.” I will spread it as much as I can with my hands (it is hot), then sometimes put a piece of parchment on top of the flattened cauliflower and using a rolling pin, roll over the parchment to make even thinner, then make a nice raised edge.

Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

We used to drink Valpolicella quite a few years back and recently came across one you mentioned on one of your shows Negrar Ripasso, which we very much enjoyed. I’d like to know a little more about this wine and the region. Thank you Wine Ladies! - Jackie

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Jackie, Vino from Veneto... love the wines, love the region! Valpolicella is a wine that comes from the region of Veneto, located in the north east of Italy, home of the “big gun” Amarone and Romeo and Juliet!

The methodology of “ripasso” is an ancient wine making technique used for centuries in Valpolicella wineries, which gives the wine more structure, body and fuller flavour. How? Ripasso” literally means “re-passed”. After the fermentation process when producing an Amarone (which uses grapes that have been dried for several months.) the same skins of those dried grapes are then used for the production of Valpolicella Ripasso. These dried grape skins add body, character, complexity and a boost of alcohol strength. The Negrar Ripasso Valpolicella Classico is dark ruby red in colour, is seductive in the nose with lush blackberry and black licorice notes and a hint of spice Full bodied, velvety smooth, rich and with a good finish.

When a Valpolicella is classified as a Classico and done in the ripasso method, the wine reaches new heights in flavour, texture, body and aromatics! The designation of “classico” requires the grapes to come from the original Valpolicella production zone which was later adjusted in 1968. The great majority of grapes used are the same as for Amarone, the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella varietals although small percentages of a few others are permitted.

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

Negrar is a cooperative winery founded in 1933 and located in the Classico area of Valpolicella. With 210 farmers/ partners producing typical grapes for Vapolicella on a surface of 530 hectares, they are one of the major producers of Amarone, Valpolicella and Ripasso wines.

BOOK REVIEW

TO BE SAVOURED

C

BY PETA-GAYE NASH

heryl Antao-Xavier’s book of poetry Bruised But Unbroken takes us on a deep, soul searching journey through the ups and downs of life. As she reflects on her journey, at times heart-wrenching, we can’t help but reflect on ours. A thorough reading takes us away from the petty details of our lives and into our common humanity as men and women, parents, immigrants, Canadians, and people. From the many tributes to her adopted Canada and into distant cultures, we recognize our childhoods, our failures and successes in this contemporary and timely collection. Bruised but Unbroken is a revised version to encompass more of the Unbroken element, less on the Bruised, and according to AntaoXavier, written for bruised spirits trying to survive and move on. The book does that with themes of growth, nature, belonging, sadness, overcoming, and finally acceptance and love. It’s sprinkled throughout with Haiku and photos, and divided into sections of War and Peace, Vignettes of Life and Mind Shift.

Antao-Xavier, a Canadian by choice for twenty five years, describes herself as a learner with the goal of discovering new voices, new material and inspiration. Her publishing company In Our Words Inc. looks for diverse voices and new material. She’s helped many writers publish their debut work of poetry, fiction and playwriting. Her message to would-be poets is to let the expression come through. Show your experience and let the reader make up their own mind about it. Don’t hit the reader over the head with the message. Bruised But Unbroken is meant to be savoured, slowly, reflectively, as words leap from the page and bury themselves within us, changing the way we view our world forever. It’s a winter’s day prescription to slow down, reflect and ultimately, recognize in others, ourselves. In the words of Antao-Xavier’s poem Utopian Moments,

Beautiful wintery scene snow-covered world outside my window nestled in home comfort: a good book, a steaming beverage good company at a distance. This is my Utopia. This is how Bruised but Unbroken must be savoured.

SECONDARY SCHOOL March has been a particularly successful month for PCSS students. Britney Reid won first place in the physical therapy event at HOSA. This is the first year for the Port Credit’s HOSA Chapter which comprised of a group of 40 dedicated students that compete in health science related events held by the HOSA Canada organization. During the Leadership Conference, students participated in competitive events, workshops, lectures, and networking events. It will held in late February at the Hilton Toronto Hotel, as well as different portions of the University of Toronto campus in downtown Toronto. Britney your Awesome!

DECA PCSS’s DECA team is very proud to be sending Arnav Garcha to Anaheim California for the International DECA competition. Arnav placed third in the Ontario Financial Consulting Event in Toronto earlier this month. We excited to be sending our Robotics team to the World Championships in Kentucky for the third year in a row. Go Team!

PC made it to OFSAA. There were about 2,300 swimmers competing in Windsor this year and some PC swimmers really stood out among the crowd. Morgan Poot finished 4th in her 100m butterfly event and Serena Tenaschuk finished 5th in her 50m freestyle event, while the Jr. Girls Relay Team composed of Morgan, Serena, Emma and Abby finished 5th and 8th in their 200m IM and 400m Freestyle events.
