Welcome to the 4th Issue of The Living Kitchen! ompleting our fourth issue of Sub-Zero’s very own magazine fills us with immense pride. We set out almost two years ago to create a beautiful, custom publication to celebrate not only the highest quality appliances on the market but also the lifestyles and interests of our discerning customers. It has been incredible to see our vision come to life, and we think you will truly enjoy the stories on these pages. For this issue, we were thrilled to sit down with LA-based celebrity interior designer Jeff Andrews, whose own kitchen is a gorgeous platform for Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove products. We were also delighted to share delicious creations from Chef Philip Raspanti, who lives and cooks on New York’s Long Island, and to take a look at the world of cranberry farming in Wisconsin and Massachusetts. A tour of Kentucky’s legendary Bourbon distilleries, a profile of a philanthropic-minded coffee company in North Carolina, and a glimpse into a stunning Mediterranean-inspired Houston home are more of the treats in store for you inside. We trust that the stories, recipes, and photos here will add to the pleasure of using your Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove appliances in the upcoming fall and winter seasons and maybe even encourage some new adventures in travel, cuisine, or home design!

From our family to yours, enjoy The Living Kitchen. Warmly,

ometimes, if you’re lucky, the overriding strength of a kitchen is its setting. This California cabin sits on a falling grade under a canopy of soaring redwoods. Noticing the land’s subtle but significant sweep down and back, I knew I wanted the room relocated for views looking out and over the backyard’s lower forest floor. I also knew then and there that this would be the kitchen I would enter in the Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove biennial Kitchen Design Contest. Imagine the impact of walking through a cozy front foyer at one grade and then,



in one step, entering what feels like a wide-open treehouse centered on the kitchen. Convinced of our vision, we scheduled photography in expectation of the room’s completion and, in the interim, managed its installation through a series of work interruptions as rare as the site itself. Covid stoppages, wildfires, and shipping mishaps aside, we were intent on meeting a contest submission date that’s become increasingly important to me. Whether as a contestant, judge, or winner, I’m proud to

say that I’ve participated in this contest for all of its 30-year tradition. And while no one can say what definitively makes for a winning kitchen, I have observed some consistencies through the decades. Being part of this contest has also allowed me to meet and connect with an impressive international roster of my peers, an experience so invaluable that it remains a strong incentive to apply. The strength of a design’s connection to its environment is one of those recurring themes I’ve witnessed among prize winners. While I’d argue that design has a much more global

flavor today than in years past—so much so that the contest no longer has regional categories—it’s still fun to see how a cool Miami kitchen approaches its landscape versus one attuned to the Australian desert. Geography, however, is only one aspect of a room’s sense of place. Not unlike what my clients seek, what judges are ultimately looking for is a truly holistic kitchen. Beautiful cabinets and materials are not enough. Decoration or a clever layout isn’t either. Instead, each of these layers needs to feel like an integral part of the whole.




In this cabin, I wanted all elements—seen and unseen— to build toward a feeling of suspension. “Float” is a word I return to repeatedly, and that’s why you’ll often see me placing reflective materials where I want more lightness under the weight of an oversized island or flanking a range, for instance. I do this because kitchen design ultimately challenges us to make large, heavy appliances appear a proportional part of one overarching architectural vision. Integrating appliances is often industry-speak for hiding them. I prefer to look at how their technology can be prioritized, even showcased, and yet still dissolve into a room’s essence.

Working with three dominant hues—dark hardwood browns, bright white, and stainless steel—De Giulio relied on carefully choreographed shifts in texture and sheen to add depth, dimension, and a sense of drama befitting of the majestic Redwoods setting.



I PREFER TO LOOK AT HOW THEIR TECHNOLOGY CAN BE PRIORITIZED, EVEN SHOWCASED, AND YET STILL DISSOLVE INTO A ROOM’S ESSENCE. High-quality photography is critical to any submission, and dramatic overalls of a space will draw a first round of eyes. But the mark of a truly holistic kitchen lies in how the design transitions from that mile-high view to the nuances. How does it mitigate the large, boxy proportions of a refrigerator, for instance, or resolve how countertops meet the range? Where are materials used for continuity, and where do they change up to better define space? Every photo needs to be impactful and help tell the larger story of which decisions were vital to the magic and soul of a space. Often, our challenge as designers isn’t just in the making but in gaining control over this level of detail. Architects can have an advantage in that respect, but I’ve also seen teams of different design professionals share prizes for their unified vision. This contest is open to all. I was fortunate to find a client like the owner of this cabin, who entrusted my studio with all aspects of the home’s interior architecture. This is a Redwoods kitchen, but it’s also a retreat for the family of a down-to-earth entrepreneur whose appreciation of craft and innovation had us designing custom displays for his art collections one room over. He understood the importance of connections to adjacent spaces, here defined with custom bronze and glass structures, and gave me the freedom to site every beam, truss, and window. He didn’t question when I needed to fabricate my own clamps to hide how a pendant was suspended or craft thin steel sleeves to support an extra-long and heavy-fired terra-cotta slab table in lieu of thick corner legs. Next year, as I shift roles to join an international panel of Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove judges, I look forward to discovering how future contestants reveal the depths of their design conviction. The categories in the contest are as many and diverse as the talent we can expect to see.

The deadline for submitting a project to the Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Kitchen Design Contest is January 31, 2024.

With capacity ranging from 24 to 146 bottles and widths from 15” in undercounter through 30” in full-size units, Sub-Zero Wine Storage fits wherever you need it—in your kitchen, pantry, wet bar, lounge, pool house, or any other space you can imagine.




By Sarah Wortham


our prized bottle of South African Pinotage. The case of Sancerre you brought back from a Loire Valley cycling tour. The magnum of Champagne you’re

saving for a special anniversary. Your wines are more than an investment—they play a key part in the moments worth savoring in your life. Sub-Zero’s extensive line of wine storage units provides exceptional safekeeping for every bottle in your collection, regardless of size or vintage. Sub-Zero Wine Storage preserves the integrity of every glass with advanced preservation technologies and protective features that guard against the harmful effects of heat, light, humidity, and vibration.

Optimal humidity Steady, moderate humidity is critical to preserving wine. Sub-Zero’s dual evaporators—one for each storage zone— provide consistent control.



Wifi Capable

Advanced temperature control Sub-Zero’s microprocessor controls the interior temperature to within one degree of its set point. At the same time, an advanced air seal around the door prevents leaks while conserving energy. Because not all wines need the same environment, most wine units have independent zones to maintain optimal storage temperatures for reds, whites, and rosés.

Specialized light protection The UV-resistant, bronze-tinted glass in the doors of Sub-Zero Wine Storage inhibits the development of unpleasant flavors and aromas by keeping light, especially damaging ultraviolet light, from penetrating bottles.

Superior vibration dampening Sub-Zero Wine Storage cradles bottles in rustproof coated steel shelves that glide out easily with minimal disruption. At the same time, the quiet compressor lets the wines rest undisturbed without mechanical vibration.

Unmatched design flexibility Classic Series full-size models feature Sub-Zero’s iconic grille in either stainless steel or custom panels. Designer Series units provide a seamless look in either fully integrated stainless or “disappearing” custom panels; these models include full-size (with and without refrigerator drawers) and undercounter versions. A handleless appearance is achieved through custom panels.

Thoughtful features An easily accessible touch-control panel allows customization of settings with the tap of a finger. Use the convenient Owner’s App or your home smart system to control temperature zones, get door-ajar notifications, toggle lights, and receive remote diagnostics from wherever you are.

Accessories Sub-Zero wine units offer an optional Dessert Wine Rack, sized to hold demi-bottles of Sauterne, Manzanilla Sherry, ice wine, and more. Odd-sized bottles, from piccolos to magnums, also fit perfectly in Wine Storage Drawers, and a Dual Installation Kit enables side-by-side placement of individual units. Sub-Zero also offers pre-printed or customizable Wine Inventory Tiles to help you organize your wine collection. ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN



Red Wine Poached Pears Another delicious recipe from Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Corporate Chef Philip Raspanti. INGREDIENTS


6 medium, firm pears (Bartlett or Anjou)


Place the wine, water, sugar, vanilla bean pod and seeds, orange zest, orange juice, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise in a 4-quart sauce pot (or any pot that snuggly fits the pears) and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve sugar.


Using Steam Mode, preheat your Wolf Convection Steam Oven to 175 degrees.


Meanwhile, peel the pears, leaving the stems on. Using a melon baller or small spoon, carefully hollow out the core and remove seeds through the bottom.


Cut a piece of parchment paper in the circumference of your pot and make a slit in the middle (this will help keep the pears submerged).


Place the pears in the pot and cover with parchment paper and then a piece of foil. Transfer the pot to the steam oven on the lowest rack and allow to cook until the pears are tender when pierced with a small paring knife, about 60-75 minutes. Remove from steam oven and allow to cool in poaching liquid.

1 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon (750ML) 1 cup water 1½ cups sugar 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped out 6 large strips of orange zest Juice of 1 orange 3 cinnamon sticks 6 whole cloves 1 star anise




When ready to serve, slice pears in half and transfer them to a platter.


Bring the saucepot with the poaching liquid in it to the stove.


Cook the poaching liquid on medium heat until it reduces to a syrup. Serve pears with a drizzle of the syrup and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.

MOOD In this Houston home inspired by the South of France, Marie Flanigan Interiors matches luxury with restraint.

By Marni Elyse Katz Photography by Julie Soefer Styling by Jessica Brinkert Holtam



Contrasting elements of metal, stone, and luxurious textiles define the grand and airy living room.



DESIGN “Homes are sprawling in Houston, but this home feels intimate as you experience it,” Marie Flanigan, Principal and Creative Director of Marie Flanigan Interiors, says. “The architect is masterful with that.” Flanigan is speaking of Kirby C. Mears, the founding Principal of Murphy Mears Architects. Flanigan and Sydney Manning, the lead designer on the project, collaborated with Mears from start to finish, infusing soul into the gracious interiors. A sweeping drive leads to the 6,200-square-foot Mediterranean-inspired home with a stucco-like exterior and formal French gardens in front. An arched portico quietly beckons one through blackened-steel French doors into the



light-filled entry, where straight ahead, another set of French doors looks to the patio. The double-height chamber feels almost monastic with its hand-burnished plastered walls and 17th-century Aubusson tapestry, which hints at the rich jewel tones to come. Oversize limestone tiles in creamy ivory and a pale gray green comprise the checkerboard-patterned floor that runs throughout the public spaces on the main level and imbues a centuries-old European feel. The effect is at once sumptuous and spare. “The interiors are inspired by Provence and the Mediterranean,” Flanigan says. “We juxtaposed rustic materials and clean lines to create an Old-World style with a modern sensibility.”

Neque et liciet, omnis magnatquo voluptatur sequi occatium dolum eos ra et,dolupta tendipit apicius

The formal rooms are right up front. The living room is a study in high contrast elegance. A Vladimir Kagan-inspired serpentine sofa covered in aubergine velvet sits beside a carved black marble mantelpiece. A 19th-century mirror in a lustrous giltwood frame that is more monochromatic moody artwork than looking glass is a quiet counterpoint to the vibrant abstract painting on the opposite wall. A chandelier with 36 spidery black metal arms hangs from the coffered plaster ceiling without stealing the show. The oval-shaped formal dining room, which is both understated and dramatic, is on the other side of the entry. Ethereal white drapery follows the curve of the room, wrapping

it with privacy and acoustic relief. By day, sunlight streams through the bow window, hitting the two-way, antiqued glass of the four-tier chandelier and charcoal-colored plaster walls. At night, the dusky space oozes ambiance. Straight back past the stair—its raw-edged limestone treads and minimalist iron rail ending in a flirtatious flick—an exquisite example of Flanigan’s rusticity meets simplicity mantra—is a welcoming kitchen with Provençal vibes. The focal point is a massive, tumbled limestone architectural element that encases the hood and frames the entire wall. “We began the kitchen design from an architectural point of view,” Flanigan explains. “The cabinetry and cooktop nestle into the wall.”




“THIS KITCHEN IS A BEAUTIFUL MARRIAGE OF SIMPLICITY AND OVER-THE-TOP DETAILING.” A marble backsplash meets a length of hand-antiqued mirror just below the limestone frame. The mirror lends a patina and provides depth as it reflects the homeowner’s collection of vintage copper pots. Stained rift-cut white oak cabinets with unfussy beading soften the metal and stone, and the Wolf range top’s telltale red knobs are an unexpected pop of color. “We spec Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances on almost every project,” Flanigan says. “This homeowner, who is a big cook, knew exactly the ones he wanted.” The suite of products, which includes stacked Wolf 30-inch Conventional and Steam Ovens, a 24-inch Coffee System, and a 48-inch Sub-Zero Pro Freezer and Refrigerator with glass door, line the wall opposite. “The client wanted all the appliances within arms’ reach rather than hidden in the pantry,” Flanigan says. Double islands, another homeowner request, anchor the space. The designers proposed cladding them in metal; he was game. After deliberating over the palette—black, beige, and stainless were in the running—they landed on Farrow & Ball Hague Blue with burnished brass trim. The trim also edges the Calacatta Namibia marble countertops. “This kitchen is a beautiful marriage of simplicity and over-the-top detailing,” Flanigan muses. Like the breakfast room, the family room boasts hand-hewn oak ceiling beams that add a cozy factor. A crushed velvet sofa blends comfort with glamour, and a vintage lacquered screen with gilded inlay from the Round Top Antiques Fair is a sophisticated backdrop. Walnut paneling runs along the facing wall, and the side walls, which are mostly glass, face the patio on one side and the fully enclosed courtyard, complete with a fountain, on the other.



Flanigan also incorporated rich wood accents in the homeowner’s private spaces at the back of the house. In the library, a zebra hide rug tops a walnut and cherry parquet floor, and Art Deco-style wood doors open into the bedroom. “He texted us TV screenshots asking us to recreate the doors from Rick’s Café Américain in Casablanca,” she says. Inside the airy bedroom, a walnut screen cocoons the upholstered bed, and another parquet pattern adorns the floor. “We didn’t realize how much he loved intricate flooring until we took him to the showroom.” While the bedroom has a groin-vaulted ceiling, the primary bath features a quirky twist: intersecting barrel vaults. Here, the vanities are tucked into an arcade that overlooks a majestic copper soaking tub set before an arched window that projects into the landscape—the perfect spot to end (or start) a day in this impeccably designed home.





THEof LAP LUXURY Boston’s new eco-conscious Millennium Collection at Winthrop Center features artfully edited interiors and custom cabinetry by acclaimed designer Christopher Peacock. By Janice Randall Rohlf / Photos courtesy of MP Boston The view from a 62nd-floor penthouse in The Millennium Collection at Winthrop Center sweeps out over the sailboat-dotted Charles River all the way to Cambridge on the opposite bank. Closer in, the eye focuses on downtown Boston, where amid the office buildings, department stores, and restaurants, Millennium Tower, another development by Millennium Partners, reaches for the sky just a couple of blocks away. When it was built seven years ago, the Tower was the epitome of luxury living in the heart of Boston and still offers second-to-none comfort and amenities. But the Millennium Residences at Winthrop Center, unveiled in April 2023 and including the exclusive Millennium Collection, take this new way of living one step further by integrating health and wellness, sustainability, and technology in building design. Designed with eco-conscious features themselves, the residences sit atop 812,000 square feet of office space slated to become the world’s largest Passive House office building. “In creating the penthouses and residences that comprise The Millennium Collection, we envisioned a seamless integration of environmental advantages, experiences and amenities that make residents feel good inside and out, and physical spaces that deliver a sense of well-being,” says Richard Baumert, Principal of Millennium Partners, the internationally recognized developer behind both the Tower and the Collection. All the amenities one associates with a comfortable lifestyle are here, including a world-class fitness center, farm-to-table cuisine from a Michelin-starred chef, and

even a dedicated club and program tailored to dogs and their owners. An immersive social calendar connects residents with curated Boston experiences across food, travel, art, and culture, and five-star service is assured from valet to door attendant, concierge, and beyond. But it’s in the residences themselves that Millennium Partners’ unique commitment to their clientele shines. The residences within The Millennium Collection—12 penthouses on floors 61 and 62 and three estate-style homes on floors 35 and 60—feature towering ceilings as high as 14 feet. Natural light floods in through floor-to-ceiling windows that frame spectacular views. Such features, research has shown, create mindsets of freedom, creativity, and less confined thinking. It’s an environment consistent with the philosophy underlying this state-of-the-art building, where behind the refined interiors is an effort to advance lifestyles that are healthy for both the person and the planet. This concept is attractive to collaborators like Christopher Peacock. “A more evolved wellness perspective includes how you feel in your environment,” says Peacock, the renowned cabinetry designer behind The Millennium Collection’s one-of-a-kind kitchens, baths, and dressing rooms. Inviting the client’s input on the design of these spaces early on is a new approach for the development team. Peacock, whose showrooms include one on Harrison Avenue in Boston, explains that clients have the ability to meet with him or his design team. This way, he says, “The homeowners feel that they are buying into a building; they are able to make it more personalized.”




“A LOT OF THE BUYERS ARE COMING FROM LARGE HOMES IN THE SUBURBS, AND THEY DON’T WANT TO DOWNGRADE, THEY ARE DISCERNING AND WANT VERY HIGH QUALITY.” For cabinetry, including appliance panels, Peacock has curated dozens of paint colors from which a client can choose. Ranging from perennially popular white to currently trending charcoal and navy blue, all the hues complement the gray-veined arabescato marble countertops, backsplash, and island top in each kitchen. Peacock, who visits the quarry to handpick the stone, has also assembled a selection of cabinetry hardware if a client wishes an even more customized look. “A lot of the buyers are coming from large homes in the suburbs, and they don’t want to downgrade,” observes Peacock. “They are discerning and want very high quality.” The sustainability aspect of these LEED (which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold residences was important to Peacock as well. He explains that “the cabinet interiors are American black walnut, locally sourced and milled in our facility in West Virginia, and the paint is made for us by a company in Vermont, Fine Paints of Europe. We use their water-based eco-paint.”

Christopher Peacock’s cabinetry graces the kitchens, baths, and dressing rooms of the residences at the Millenium Collection at Winthrop Center, many of which have spectacular views of Boston’s waterfront.

The kitchens showcase sustainable appliances, including energy-efficient Sub-Zero refrigerators and wine storage units, and Wolf convection steam ovens and induction cooktops, which allow a faster, safer, healthier, and more energy-efficient method than gas cooktops. If a client is not familiar with the cooking methods, they are invited to attend a seminar at the Clarke Showroom, Boston’s showroom for Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, to learn how to use them. To launch their culinary adventures in their new homes, there is also a complimentary piece of cookware from Made-In as a welcome gift to owners. Over the years, since launching Christopher Peacock cabinetry in 1992, the London-born designer’s standards have remained consistently high. For example, for The Millennium Collection, installation entails hand-painting each cabinet in place to realize a depth of color and subtlety that cannot be achieved otherwise. It is this fervent desire to create the most beautiful and lasting products that drives the company. “When we refer to the ‘professional grade kitchens’ featured within The Millennium Collection, we are alluding to creating something to the best of our ability, using the best joinery techniques and the finest materials available,” says Peacock. “The finished product is inherently professional grade because it is built to last forever.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN

veryone deserves a little glamour in their life,” says Jeff Andrews, a celebrated interior designer who lives and works in Los Angeles. “Cultivating your sense of that might require finding your voice with design,” he says.

“Beauty is relative and selective. It’s a feeling or a state of mind about things that bring you happiness.” The former dancer and choreographer translated his sense of grace and style into a successful interior design business that emerged from his personal home decorating projects. “I would move almost every year and redo everything in the new apartment,” says Andrews. “It was a passion of mine, so when I segued out of my choreography career, I moved right into design.” His first professional design client was Eleanor Mondale, the daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale. “Eleanor had just bought a house in LA’s Beachwood Canyon and wanted some help, so I jumped in!” says Andrews. The two became good friends, and Andrews designed other homes for her in New York City, The Hamptons, and Minnesota. “Working on Eleanor’s projects gave me my designer legs and helped me find confidence in my abilities.” Since his burst into this new career, Andrews has worked with hundreds of clients and published a design book, The New Glamour: Interiors with Star Quality. He has also launched furniture, rug, wallcovering, wood tile, and hardware collections and has twice been on the Elle Décor A-List of top interior designers in the world.

A pair of fashion entrepreneurs upcycle luxury scarves into distinctive and in-demand shoes. By Lannan O’Brien / Photos courtesy of Chris Bartick


or at least a decade, Michael Tonello and his husband, Juan Canal, had a tradition: every spring, they went out to buy new espadrilles. The first time Canal made the shopping suggestion was shortly after Tonello had moved to Barcelona from his native U.S. Tonello recalls asking his spouse why. His response? “Because in Spain, everyone wears espadrilles all summer. It’s just what you do.” And that was that. Each year, as the weather got warmer, the couple picked out new summer shoes. Eventually, however, Tonello came to a realization: the



espadrilles on the shelves never changed. Sure, there were an array of colors, along with the occasional cheerful awninglike stripe. But as he puts it, “They were just kind of boring.” Then inspiration struck, and it came in the form of a vintage Hermès scarf. The last time he had worn the classic accessory was New Year’s Eve 1992, at a black-tie dinner party in New York City. Since that night, says Tonello, “It sat in its little orange box for many years, and then it moved to Barcelona with me, where it got stuck in a dresser drawer.” He thought, what if there is a new life waiting for his designer scarf—in the form of shoes?

Business partners Chris Bartick and Michael Tonello outside their store on Nantucket. ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN



Hand-stitched details and oneof-a-kind designs (no two pairs are exactly the same) are staples of the Respoke brand.

After reaching out to several local workshops, Tonello visited one in the small mountain village of La Rioja, Spain, where he was introduced to the many challenges of crafting shoes from silk. But instead of giving up, he left his three-hundred-dollar Hermès scarf at the workshop and said, “See if you can think of something.” They did, and when Tonello received his espadrilles in the mail, he was so happy with them that he posted a photo on Facebook. That image inadvertently created a frenzy of wannabe purchasers. So, Tonello ordered 25 more pairs to be made in a similar fashion, and in a flash, they sold out via social media. “That’s when I realized there was a business here,” he says. In his opinion, everyone, at some point or another, has an idea, and it is most important to see it through. “Sometimes it’s a great idea, sometimes it’s not so great, but the big thing is that most people never bring their ideas to fruition,” says the entrepreneur. He partnered with graphic designer Chris Bartick, and together, they created a brand for their products: Respoke. Tonello was well-versed in searching for one-of-a-kind items. When he first moved to Barcelona, he became an eBay reseller of luxury goods, an experience that inspired his 2008 best-selling book, Bringing Home the Birkin, about his hunt for the infamous and coveted Hermès Birkin bag. He knew that he and Bartick would have to commit passionately to unearthing their source materials.



Twice a year, they take whirlwind trips to France, Italy, and Spain to purchase large quantities of new Hermès, Gucci, Emilio Pucci, and Ferragamo silk scarves directly from each company. They also work throughout the year with major auction houses worldwide to source vintage and iconic silk from a range of designer brands. Initially, their espadrilles, hand-stitched from designer scarves, sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, but in the ensuing six years, they annually launched a new retail location. They now have two in Provincetown, Massachusetts, one each on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, one in Southampton, New York, and their most recent shop in Charleston, South Carolina. Each spring, the five seasonal Respoke stores in the Northeast reopen with entirely new inventory, while the old designs and unsold products are sent to the brand’s year-round South Carolina location. Every June through October, Tonello works alongside employees in one of the six boutiques. Recently, he was in Provincetown—the site of Respoke’s very first store—which, he says “has been wildly successful.” Tonello, who was raised on Cape Cod, is happy to be able to spend quality time near home when he returns there for business. Tonello’s best-selling book, Bringing Home the Birkin, chronicles his international search for the elusive Birkin bag.

During the production of the espadrilles, remnants are saved and repurposed in fine art pieces created by Bartick. His colorful artwork includes paintings of whales’ tails and beloved landmarks—such as a Venetian gondolier or the Edgartown Light—each embellished with designer fabric. It’s not the only effort made to reduce waste—the company also reuses the large shoe-shipping cartons from Spain to send inventory to the Charleston Respoke store. Sustainability was part of Tonello’s thought process when he first developed the concept for Respoke. As a bonus, he says, “We also created something unusual that did not look like anything else at the time.” He credits friends and employees with helping him and Bartick build the successful business that Respoke has become. One of those friends is Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week, who helped the brand make its first connections with Bergdorf Goodman and has actively supported them since. “She has been a great voice for us,” he says. But also worth honoring is Tonello’s own instinct and optimism. He seldom says no to a challenge for the sole reason that he dislikes negativity. “I always feel that when a door closes, a small window opens, and I always look at that small window as an opportunity rather than an obstacle,” he says. “I seize the opportunity and try to make it into something positive—and something great, if possible.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN




A Sense

of Place



By Lisa Cavanaugh hen imagining a room, especially a functional one such as a kitchen, thoughtful designers will imbue their schematic with a specificity and quality of belonging to the city or natural landscape where it exists.

We visited with an award-winning architect in Australia and a renowned

designer in The Netherlands to learn more about how particular kitchen projects reflect and respond to the world outside the windows.




AUSTRALIA This stunning streamlined home, known as “The Farm,” is on the windswept south coast of New South Wales, with a view of the Tasman Sea. The awardwinning architecture is responsive to climate and integrated with the ever-changing landscape. From nearly every angle, the owners and their guests are treated to views of verdant headlands that undulate down to the shimmering sea. Generous-sized doors and windows flow to a welcoming courtyard or, when closed, keep the home cozy and inviting at any time of year. The thoughtfully designed kitchen opens fully to an expansive deck, making it a relaxed and convivial center of the home. The space, like every part of the house, is accessible and relaxed but also offers a stateof-the-art culinary environment. “Most Australians live in temperate coastal regions, and so outdoor dining and cooking are very popular,” says Fergus Scott, Principal of Fergus Scott Architects, who, with Caryn McCarthy and Richard Smith, was the architect on the project. “Australians also love a weekend BBQ.”

Fergus Scott Architects won first place in the Contemporary category in the 2015-2016 Sub-Zero Kitchen Design Contest for their spectacular kitchen in this exquisite coastal home.

The Netherlands “Haarlem is near to Amsterdam, but closer to the sea,” says Davy Swanenberg, Creative Director and co-owner of Culimaat Kitchens in Berlicum, Netherlands. “In previous centuries, the rich people of Amsterdam moved toward the coast a little; it was a kind of retreat for them, and there are many historical buildings still intact throughout the city.” One of these, an opulent circa 1700s bank building, has been transformed into a resplendent private home with modern flourishes. The interiors were mostly gutted and refitted for contemporary living, but the scope and size of the rooms harken back to an earlier century. “The house reflects the grandeur of the sort of robust financial institution that Haarlem was famous for,” says Swanenberg. “There are big, tall windows that overlook the city, soaring ceilings with crown moldings, 12-centimeterthick doors. The client wanted to make a statement.”

Lindsey Wrege joins some of the staff at the grand opening of 321 Coffee’s Downtown Raleigh location.


hen Lindsay Wrege was in elementary school in North Carolina, the friends she made just happened to be girls living with disabilities. “They were the first people to invite me to play with them at recess,” she says. “It was normal. We lived in city neighborhoods and grew up together. We would walk to and from school together, work on projects, play tennis, and hang out. They were just my awesome friends, but that experience of seeing inclusion in action really impacted me.” Making sure their fun worked for everyone, no matter what physical or developmental challenges they faced, proved to be a potent lesson for Wrege. “It definitely shaped how I looked at things like accessibility and modification.” She also realized that there was a world of opportunity available to her that her friends didn’t have. “I learned that 80 percent of adults with disabilities are unemployed,” she says. “One of my friends did have a job throughout high school, but she worked over five years at the same place, and all they let her do the whole time was clean bathrooms. It was really unsettling to see that.” Soon, Wrege found a way to make a difference—through coffee. “I met my business partner Michael Evans when we were students at North Carolina State,” she says. “We found that we have shared values for inclusion and building a company built on doing social good.” In 2017, Wrege and Evans launched 321 Coffee, named for the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome, which causes Down syndrome. “Our name is something that we’re really proud of because we view it as a way to recognize everyone’s uniqueness.” Photos Coutesy of 321 Coffee



COMMUNIT Y Smiles abound at 321 Coffee, which employs people with disabilties at its roasting facility and coffee shops.

While Wrege admits she is not a coffee fanatic, she recognized that coffee shops are great community hubs that foster connection. “We decided to create a space where people in the Raleigh community could come, get to know their barista, and chat,” she says. “Our mission was bringing people together while increasing representation for people with disabilities in the community.” The company currently employs more than 50 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. “We have staff members with Down syndrome, and also autism, spina bifida, DiGeorge syndrome—you name it, you have a place with us,” says Wrege, who is pleased that some of her friends from childhood who have Down syndrome are now working at 321. “I think it is super cool that we were able to create these opportunities together.”



321 Coffee operates three coffee shops in North Carolina (two in Raleigh and one in Durham), and they roast their own beans, ethically sourced via De La Finca Coffee Importers. “De La Finca is a local company started by Nelson Amadora, a fifthgeneration coffee farmer from Honduras,” says Wrege. “Nelson grew up working on his grandfather’s coffee farm and then moved to Holly Springs, North Carolina, of all places! Nelson imports from his family’s and friends’ farms in Honduras, Guatemala, and Colombia, and we are really proud to partner with him.” “Our team of roasters, Amanda, Paul, and Sophie, have been trained to roast really amazing coffee,” she says. Wrege says that her cofounder Michael has become “a huge coffee snob.” The team also includes a staff member with an extensive coffee background. “She’s got a really great palate, and our roasters

“We’re very proud to have built a company and a team that people want to be a part of.”

have learned a ton about coffee, so they’re involved in the process as well.” With brews from decaf to dark roast, 321 coffees have been given inspirational names: Elevate, Uplift, Rise, and Stride. The coffee—which is available in the shops and online—is packaged in bags that include drawn images of the actual employees. “It was very intentional to incorporate our baristas on our products,” says Wrege. “We include sketches of their faces, names, and quotes from them.” She says that choice was a way to signify the company’s value of furthering representation. “We make sure that people with disabilities can see someone who looks like them when they walk into our coffee shop or buy our coffee online.” “We’re very proud to have built a company and a team that people want to be a part of,” says Wrege, who adds they are often at capacity but collect contact information from great people who want to contribute and be a part of their mission. Then, they share job openings when they become available. “We have a pretty intensive two-week training program because a lot of people who work with us have not had prior work experience,” she says. “We make sure that everyone is taken care of and feels confident when it comes time for their first day of working in the stores.” Wrege is amazed at how successful the business has become. The shops are busy gathering spots, and the website has increased sales tenfold. “The coolest thing from the online store is how people all over the country are able to support 321,” she says. “We get people sending us pictures of our bags of coffee from everywhere, such as in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s just remarkable to know that all these people enjoy 321 in their homes every day.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN



The Kentucky Bourbon Trail® offers some of the best sips in America.

By Danna Lorch

“Many of our distilleries have state-of-the-art cocktail bars and restaurants with chefs from around the world coming to offer guests incredible food and drink.”


o spirit is more American than Kentucky Bourbon—in fact, Congress declared Bourbon "America's Native Spirit" in 1964. To immerse yourself in the world of this famously smooth corn-based liquor, spend a few days or even a few weeks exploring the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®. As you travel through the rolling hills of the Bluegrass State, where 95 percent of the world’s bourbon is produced, you’ll sip craft cocktails while dining in some of the region’s best restaurants and touring local distilleries, with options to visit horse farms and art galleries along the way. When the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® was first launched in 1999, adult beverage lovers could travel among six distilleries along a route planned by the Kentucky Distillers Association. Today, if you include the secondary Craft Tour, which highlights smaller distilleries, there are 46 stops on the trail.



Using their website’s colorful and detailed itinerary planner makes it easy to map out a custom journey that focuses on one region or one that hopscotches through country towns across the state. "The trail has become such a diverse offering of experiences for everybody who visits,” says Amandalin Ryan, Director of Kentucky Bourbon Trail Experiences®. “Many of our distilleries have state-of-the-art cocktail bars and restaurants with chefs from around the world coming to offer guests incredible food and drink.” Evolving as a distilled product in Kentucky since the late 1700s, bourbon whiskey has to be made with a mash bill (bourbon-speak for grain mix) of at least 51 percent corn and can’t be bottled at less than 80 proof. “Even with these restrictions, there are so many innovative things distilleries can do,” says Ryan. “The yeast strains can really affect the product, and you can also add different flavoring

Visitors on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail can choose to follow the standard route and see classic brands or explore the new distilleries of the Craft Trail.

grains like rye or chocolate malted barley. Makers can even add surprising ingredients like oats or quinoa; as long as it’s a grain, it can fall under that whiskey category.” Once distilled, the whiskey is stored in barrels, and the level of char and different varieties of oak influence the final product’s taste. “A lot of distilleries are doing fun finishes,” Ryan notes. “They might take what they’ve aged out of the original barrel and finish it in a wine or aged beer barrel.” Now nearing its 25th year, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® is a huge draw, pulling in millions of visitors annually. The fall is a particularly active time, with September events celebrating Kentucky Bourbon Heritage Month, followed by the annual Bourbon Chase in October. This 200-mile overnight relay race takes athletes and spectators through a one-of-a-kind course that winds its way through Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region over country roads and past horse farms and distilleries.

November and December are quieter, cozier months with moderate weather and ready access to all the bespoke tours, dining opportunities, and luxury accommodations available along the trail. At any time of the year, visitors can plan a customized route through as many as four bourbon regions. They can choose to meander throughout the state or follow the classic Bourbon Trail that centers on two urban areas. In Louisville, there is the chance to explore some of the big names in the industry, such as historic Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery, which has been continuously operating since 1753, or Old Forester, America’s First Bottled Bourbon. Lexington offers both the venerable James E. Pepper Distilling Co., which initially produced Bourbon during the American Revolution and has been recently relaunched, and a newer entry to the landscape, RD1, which is gaining notoriety.




It’s worth a special trip to Versailles, a suburb of Lexington, for drinks at the Amsden Bourbon Bar. Named “One of America’s Best Bourbon Bars” in 2022 by the Bourbon Review, this charming downtown tavern pours more than 100 bourbons, beers, and specialty cocktails in the historic Amsden Bank building, which is the hub of revitalization downtown. It would be a mistake not to plan a pilgrimage to the Maker’s Mark Distillery, set on the 1,100-acre Star Hill Farm in Loretto. In addition to a distillery tour, sips of unique bourbons, and a meal at a soon-to-open new onsite restaurant, visitors can also book a Maker’s Mark Art & Design Tour for a guided stroll through the distillery’s worldclass art collection. End your tour with a taste of Maker’s Mark Private Selection beneath glass artist Dale Chihuly’s luminous sculpture. Meanwhile, those who pride themselves on traveling off the beaten path should dedicate additional days to navigating the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour®. Its most recent stop is Whiskey Thief Distilling Co. in rural Franklin County, which is a rare hidden gem, rapidly making a name for itself with single-barrel bourbon crafted through a process of single-batch distillation. The makers grow their own corn and other grains onsite at their farm and are glad to offer a tour and tasting in a restored barn. “We recently announced more distilleries on the Craft Tour,” says Ryan, “Including Augusta Distillery in Augusta, Pensive Distilling Co. in Newport, and Fresh Bourbon in Lexington.” Of course, as alluring as the libations can be, a trip to Kentucky is never just about bourbon alone. Along the trail are dozens of fascinating side trips to experience more of the Bluegrass State. The Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville invites visitors to sip mint juleps while learning about the state’s unparalleled legacy of thoroughbred horse racing.


Once you have soaked up the Derby lore, stop by Formé Millinery Co., the official milliner of the Kentucky Derby Museum, for a stylish bespoke hat. For a wearable souvenir you’ll use every day, sign up for a belt-making workshop at heritage leather maker Clayton & Crume, also in Louisville, or choose one of their timeless leather-wrapped glass flasks, rock glasses, and decanters to bring a classic bourbon country feel to your home bar. Another interactive artistic offering in town is available at Flame Run, where you can craft your own blown-glass masterpiece guided by a resident glass artist. After all of your shopping and crafting endeavors, end your day at Copper & Kings, which delivers rooftop dinners and modern cocktails in its charming urban overlook.

For those who want to explore the Lexington area beyond the trail, the Kentucky Horse Park offers live equine presentations and the chance to get in the saddle yourself with riding experiences. Or you can visit the 60,000 square feet of exhibitions at the International Museum of the Horse, which narrates the unbreakable friendship between humans and horses from a historical perspective. You can also partake in behind-the-scenes horse farm tours through Horse Country, a not-forprofit organization whose members are part of the Kentucky equine industry, mainly in the Lexington, Versailles, and Midway areas. No matter how you carve out your time along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail®, the historic adventures, art exploration, and tasting experiences are constantly expanding and sure to please.




Chasing the Light Head far north to experience magic in the sky.




Here are a few spots worthy of adding to your dream vacation list:


amed for the Roman goddess of dawn, the aurora borealis—or northern lights—is a celestial display seen only in areas near the North Pole. (The southern hemisphere’s counterpart is called aurora australis.) Witnessed in person, this phenomenon is a stunning sight to behold. Colorful lights in hues of green, blue, pink, purple, and sometimes red appear to dance in undulating waves across the night sky. It’s no wonder that many adventurers cross the northern reaches of the globe in search of the aurora borealis. There are numerous treks available for intrepid travelers seeking this once-in-alifetime experience. For those looking for luxurious destinations, many fine hotels and lodges from Alaska to Finland offer sublime amenities and specialized activities dedicated to observing the lights.

Sorrisniva Alta, Norway

On the banks of the Alta River is the world’s northernmost Igloo Hotel, constructed annually by a team of 30 local builders using 250 tons of ice. The hotel, which is designed with a new theme each year, comprises rooms made entirely of ice, complete with insulated mattresses and reindeer hides (inside, it stays roughly 19 to 23 degrees Fahrenheit). Less adventurous guests will feel warm and cozy at the resort’s Arctic Wilderness Lodge, a year-round accommodation where panoramic views abound. Whichever you choose, you’ll have access to numerous activities for viewing the lights: guided tours, snowmobile trips, and even a reindeer and Sámi experience where you can interact with the Sámi Indigenous people, learn cultural traditions, and participate in reindeer sledding. Sorrisniva’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Bram Bril, says, “The experience of being up close with reindeer, and the opportunity to witness and be a part of a way of life that is deeply connected to nature and the changing seasons is something that many appreciate.”

Sheldon Chalet

Denali National Park, Alaska

Adventure seekers will feel at home at the Sheldon Chalet, where the remote wilderness of Denali National Park offers a private escape for world-class hiking, backcountry skiing, and crystal-clear views of the northern lights. At an elevation of 5,800 feet, with zero light pollution, owner Marne Sheldon says, “You feel as if you are on stage with them and can reach out and touch them as they surround you in the Don Sheldon Amphitheater.” The name is no coincidence: Don Sheldon, a pilot who invented airplane modifications and tactics for glacial landings, was in the process of mapping the Alaska Range (along with cartographer Brad Washburn) when he discovered what would be the location of the chalet in the 1960s. Once a rustic mountain house, the now luxurious accommodations were built by his children years later according to his vision. They include saunas and gourmet dining, plus access to helicopter sightseeing tours, adventure gear, and glacier guides. The only thing missing is a roadway—fittingly, the chalet is accessible only by plane.

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort Saariselkä, Finland

In Finnish Lapland, 250 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle, you’ll find a wintry oasis with log chalets and glass igloos tucked into a snow-covered landscape. The resort has a story that began in the 1970s, when Jussi Eiramo ran out of fuel while returning home from a fishing trip. After setting up camp in an area known as Kakslauttanen, he fell in love with the wilderness that surrounded him and decided to stay, ultimately starting a business so that others could enjoy it as he did. In addition to glass igloos and chalets made of kelo pines (large trees that dried upright and shed their bark), the arctic resort also offers a combination of the two. Kelo-Glass Igloos offer both the warmth of a chalet and the incredible views of a glass igloo, enabling guests to see the aurora right from their windows. Seeking a closer look? Join a guided tour on a quad bike, on horseback, or in a horse-drawn carriage.

Arctic Bath Hotel Harads, Sweden

The circular main building of Arctic Bath Hotel is a mastery of architecture. Representing the importance of the Lule River (on which the building floats) to the transportation of timber, its construction mimics log jams in rapids. The design, along with those of the resort’s suites and cabins—including floating cabins on the river with wood decks, accessed via footpath—integrates seamlessly with nature, creating the sense that one is connected to the surrounding landscape. The resort does not promote a specific northern lights experience, since the phenomena perform on nature’s own terms. “It’s a bonus,” says Sales Manager Elin Westman, but rest assured that when they do appear, the lights are visible anywhere on the property. “You may see the northern lights from all of Arctic Bath’s rooms,” notes Westman, “The water cabins have a tilted wall with a window facing north, so you can see the lights from the comfort of your bed, if you’re lucky!” Wellness is central to the Arctic Bath experience: The spa offers multiple saunas, Jacuzzis, and an open-air cold pool, as well as a variety of treatments from facials to deep-tissue massages.

FOOD Raspanti embraces his Italian-American heritage in his cooking.

As a teenager, Raspanti’s first job was in the kitchen of a local pizzeria. When he learned that a coworker was attending restaurant school, he thought to himself. “That is something I definitely want to try.” After studying psychology in college for a year, he transferred to a restaurant school in downtown Manhattan and never looked back. Following graduation, he was hired as a prep cook in the kitchen of the mass media company Condé Nast, serving lunch to discerning publishing titans like Anna Wintour, the legendary editor of Vogue. “I would make espresso ice cream for her each week, even if she was out of the country, just in case she flew in on the red-eye and wanted to hold a meeting in the dining room,” he says. It was remarkably effective training in the correct way to run a meticulously organized kitchen. After Condé Nast, Raspanti became an Executive Chef at the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Manhattan. He flexed his culinary chops by directing a team that prepared daily meals for hundreds of people. “That job really grew me into where I am today,” he says. “I used to prepare food for heads of

Mussels and Clams Fra Diavolo This spicy tomato, shellfish, and pasta dish is an Italian favorite. “Fra Diavolo” translates to “Brother Devil” and reflects the heat of the red pepper used in the sauce. Chef Raspanti first prepares the fresh pasta by hand. Then, he puts together the zesty sauce with fresh herbs and local mussels using the Wolf Induction Cooktop. Finally, he pairs the dish with a Sicilian white wine, SurSur by Donnafugata, in homage to his Italian roots. Buon appetito!

he says, for marinating rib-eye steaks for a big holiday cookout in the Hamptons or freezing perfect proportions of wild-caught salmon for a quick weeknight dinner for two in a Manhattan high rise. As a New York chef, he understands how the region eats and cooks. When he’s not in the showrooms, Raspanti likes to take his son to Mets’ games, the hometown favorites, or join his wife to enjoy wine tasting in the vineyards of Long Island. There, he will search for the perfect vintage to accompany each menu he will prepare and serve to Sub-Zero showroom guests. As a seasonally attuned chef, Raspanti adapts his menus throughout the year. For winter recipes, he leans into root vegetables like butternut and acorn squash, pomegranate, celery root, and parsnips. “For example, I like to make a beautiful burrata salad with a savory butternut squash granola,” he says. “I garnish the cheese with pomegranate seeds and pomegranate molasses and marinated winter squash.” It’s adding these playful twists to traditional menu items that excites Raspanti the most. “I like to do fun pairings,” he says. “I hope to delight and inspire the Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove consumer.”

t is estimated that Americans consume more than 400 million pounds of cranberries each year, with the non-profit Agricultural Marketing Resource Center reporting that 20 percent of that total is gobbled up during the week of Thanksgiving alone. Americans are not the only ones who love the tart treats; the demand for this fruit native to North America has gone global, with the United States leading the way as the top producer of cranberries in the world. Although Indigenous peoples of North America have enjoyed this perennial superfood rich in disease-fighting antioxidants for thousands of years, the cultivation of cranberries didn’t begin until 1816. Revolutionary War veteran Captain Henry Hall of Dennis, Massachusetts, noticed that the wild cranberries in his bog grew better when sand blew over them. The revelation was the birth of the commercial cranberry industry. Today, Massachusetts supplies of the nation’s crop, The one-third Kentucky Bourbon Trail ® offers ranking second in cranberry production behind Wisconsin, some of the best sips which in America. harvests more than half of all cranberries in the country. (New Jersey, Oregon, and Washington produce the rest.) We met with two cranberry growers, one from Wisconsin and one from Massachusetts, to learn more about this nutrient-dense fruit in a good-natured “battle of the berries.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN



The Badger State Despite Massachusetts’ head start in cranberry cultivation, “Wisconsin is the nation’s leading producer of cranberries, supplying 60 percent of the nation’s commercial crop,” says Mike Bartling, President of the Manitowish Cranberry Company, Inc., in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin. Bartling’s family was one of eight families who moved north from central Wisconsin to Manitowish Waters after WWII in the hopes of expanding cranberry production into the Northwoods. Today, almost 80 years later, the family’s 190-acre farm is one of five in Manitowish Waters. Since the late 1950s, the Bartling family has contracted with Ocean Spray–an agricultural cooperative owned by more than 700 farmer-families like the Bartlings–to process and sell their annual harvest, which ranges from 45,000 to 70,000 barrels (each barrel is equivalent to 100 pounds). “I think a lot of people think cranberries grow in water–but they don’t. We just harvest them in water,” says Bartling, who began his cranberry-growing career on his family’s farm in the 1980s alongside his brother Peter. “Cranberries are a wetland crop, so they need to be kept moist but not flooded, or they won’t grow.” When harvest time rolls around in the fall, the Bartlings flood the bogs, causing the hollow, red fruit to float off the tops of their low-growing woody vines–a method called wet harvesting, which is how most cranberries are now harvested. Bartling’s yearly crop, like 95 percent of the world’s cranberry crop, is grown for processed cranberry products such as Craisins® and juice. Only five percent of cranberries are destined to be sold as fresh fruit, and those are dry-harvested using a hand-operated mechanical picker that combs the berries off the vine.

Over his career as a third-generation cranberry grower, Mike has served on the board of Ocean Spray. During that time, he has overseen the switch from growing the Searles variety of cranberries to the earlier ripening and higher-yielding Stevens variety. He has also crafted and fine-tuned farming equipment and addressed various challenges along the way. Although Mike’s brother Peter has retired from the family business, he still lends a hand during harvest season, and Mike, who considers himself semi-retired, maintains an advisory role. As fourth-generation cranberry growers, Mike’s sons Steven and David now carry on the legacy, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the family business.

Mike Bartling’s sons David and Steven have taken the helm of running the family’s Manitowish Cranberry Company.




The Bay State Decas Cranberry Products, Inc. in Carver, Massachusetts, started almost 90 years ago as a family business when brothers William, Nicholas, and Charles set up a pushcart to sell fresh cranberries. The brothers did so well the first year that they were able to purchase a 15-acre cranberry bog in the neighboring town of Rochester. Over the next few generations, the Decas family expanded the business considerably. Not only did they purchase an additional 400 acres of farmland to grow their own cranberry crop, but they also began contracting with fellow cranberry growers to sell their harvests. In the 1990s, the family built a processing plant to sort, clean, and transform cranberries into fruit juice and sweetened dried cranberries. In 2021, Decas Cranberry Products was purchased by Fruit d’Or, a cranberry and wild blueberry processing company. “We are carrying on the tradition, organizational structure, and core values of the original company,” says James Ross, a Grower Relations and Agronomy Manager at the company. Ross, who grew up on his family’s Cape Cod cranberry farm, designs and oversees projects to maximize the quality and yield of cranberry crops. He works as a liaison between Decas Cranberry Products/Fruit d’Or and its community of cranberry growers. “One of my favorite things about my job is meeting someone who is taking a larger step in their role in the industry,” he says, “and making those connections with the next generation of growers and seeing a successful and sustainable transition of these farms.” “For most of us, growing cranberries is a labor of love,” says Ross, who says the farmers enjoy producing a fruit that is inherently good for people. “We like being able to share a superior product with our friends, families, and customers,” he adds. “That is always what we are striving for.”

A prominent Nashville interior designer has the perfect recipe for a memorable night with friends.

H ospitality SOUTH ERN




Interior designer Lori Paranjape welcomed friends and colleagues to her stunning new home in Nashville for a chef-curated dinner party.


fter Lori Paranjape and her husband completed their resplendent new Tennessee home, she wanted to celebrate. “We decided to do something really special,” says the Nashville-based interior designer, “so I turned to my friends at Sub-Zero to help me pull it off.”

Paranjape credits the team at Tisdel Distributing and its Executive Chef,

Brandie Lamb, for helping build the concept for her party. First and foremost, Paranjape knew she wanted amazing food whose preparation would utilize her fantastic new kitchen. “I said we really need to do something that shows off what my Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances can do,” she says. “I have this incredible kitchen, and it seems a shame to throw a party and not have these elements be a part of it.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN


ENTERTAINING Above: Menus featured original artwork from Nashville area painter Ashleigh Suarez. Below: Tisdel Distributing Executive Chef Brandie Lamb and Sub-Zero Head Demonstration Chef Joel Chesebro collaborated on an exquisitely planned, celebratory menu.

Chef Brandie recruited the additional support and talent of Sub-Zero Head Demonstration Chef, Joel Chesebro, and together they created a stunning menu that reflected the warm welcome that Tennessee is known for. With delectable items that ranged from a mischievous nod to classic tuna casserole, a decadent butterpoached halibut, and a playful chocolate piñata, the meal delighted Paranjape and her guests. “Chef Brandie told me we’d be in for some pretty eclectic things, and she didn’t disappoint!” The printed menu itself was a memento for the diners, with original artwork from local painter Ashleigh Suarez adorning each one. “We wanted to create a unique keepsake for our guests to remember the evening by,” says Kate Esteller, Trade Representative at Tisdel and one of the key planners of the event. “I was thrilled to hear that several guests ended up framing the menu/ artwork for their offices!”



Tablescapes coordinated by Esteller and Lamb brightened the harvest tables in Paranjape's dining room.

Paranjape had invited a dozen colleagues from the vibrant Nashville design world to join in the fun. “We have a really lovely community of designers who are friends, and this was a chance for us to gather at less of an industryfeeling party and more of an intimate evening,” says Paranjape. “I was excited to host all of them here in my own house.” To facilitate the size of the party, she rented two long harvest tables to run through the middle section of her home, which opens up completely to the exterior. “We have NanaWall doors and windows that open up to the screen porch,” says Paranjape, “and it made for a delightful indoor-outdoor, al fresco experience.” To reflect the simple charm of the table style, Esteller and Chef Brandie spearheaded the aesthetic choices for the floral arrangements and table settings, which included dark metal chargers and antique-looking gold-toned cutlery. “I brought our choices back to Lori for an easy ‘YES!’ on approvals,” says Esteller. “Everything looked perfect,” agrees Paranjape. No Nashville gathering would be complete without live music, and local guitarist and recording artist Levi Snider entertained the gathering with airy, expressive tunes. To complement the food, a wine steward chose five different vintages, from Champagne to a dessert muscat, and expertly narrated each selection as he served the guests throughout the courses.




Some of the dishes that delighted Paranjape's guests included (clockwise from top:) Butter-poached Halibut over Ramps and Fiddlehead ferns, Hangar Steak with Black Asparagus, Caramelized Figs with Chicken Liver Mousse, and Bread Salad with Sherry Glazed Pork Belly each accompanied by a curated selection of wines.

From the camaraderie of the assembled guests to the curated ambiance and the sublime food, Paranjape’s new home kick-off dinner party was a smashing success. When she first began designing her new home, Paranjape had imagined casual evenings entertaining friends, but “The Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove, and Tisdel teams completely exceeded my expectations,” she says. “They really took things to the next level and made the house shine!”



Tuna Confit Sub-Zero Head Demonstration Chef Joel Chesebro says he likes to “have fun with familiar flavors” such as tuna. INGREDIENTS: 1 pound fresh tuna Cure Mixture • 1 teaspoon chili flakes • 1 teaspoon black pepper • 2 teaspoons salt 2 cups olive oil 3 sprigs thyme 1 clove garlic 1 strip lemon zest






Sprinkle tuna with cure mixture and let sit in the refrigerator overnight. Remove the tuna from the refrigerator and wipe off the cure mixture. Place tuna and the oil in a sealable bag and cook in a Wolf Convection Steam Oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes and then place uncovered in the refrigerator to finish cooling. Enjoy with crusty bread or use in a delicious classic tuna salad, tuna melt, salad niçoise, or use in an updated tuna casserole recipe – such as this delightful one that Chef Joel and Chef Brandie served at Lori Paranjape’s designer dinner party.

lide on the ice, swim laps in the pool, or learn how to cook a nutritious meal. These are all options for students at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, thanks to the brand-new Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center on campus. Designed to benefit both the physical and mental health of college students, the facility is just one of the many ways Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove support the people of greater Madison, where the company is headquartered. The Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center officially opened its doors on April 24, 2023, made possible through a generous donation from the Bakke Family (Jim Bakke, CEO and President of Sub-Zero Group, is a native of Madison and a UW—Madison alum) via the Sub-Zero Group, Inc., It was the third project to be completed from UW’s master plan that was approved in 2014 to improve the UW Madison campus’s outdated recreational facilities. Affectionally called “the Bakke,” the center not only provides more than 250,000 square feet of recreational space for students, but it also welcomes them with open arms and gives them a sense of belonging and balance so they can thrive Knowing that today’s college students have both incredible resources and technology at their fingertips as well as high amounts of stress factors, the leaders at UW—Madison sought to create an ambitious and inspirational recreation center where students could exercise, unwind, learn, explore, and connect with others. As one of the community-focused places the college provides for the student body, the Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center merges traditional sports activities with wellness services to encourage individual fitness and campus togetherness. ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN

“When we designed this facility, we were very intentional about building unique spaces where anybody, not just your traditional gym user, felt comfortable and felt a sense of belonging,” says Aaron Hobson, Director of Recreation and Wellbeing, University of Wisconsin— Madison. “Our tagline when we opened the facility was ‘You belong at Bakke.’” With a nod to Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove’s product line, several named areas in the center offer opportunities for fitness, sports, and nutrition, each reflecting a corporatewide dedication to community wellbeing:

Cove Pool This 25-yard recreational pool allows members to enjoy aquatic programming and fitness classes without competing with the schedule of the athletic swimming and dive teams, who practice at a separate facility.



Sub-Zero Ice Center A state-of-the-art ice sheet is home to men’s and women’s club ice hockey teams, offers lessons and open skating opportunities, and serves as a community space for events open to the public.

Wolf Teaching Kitchen The fully functional and immersive space helps students learn more about nutrition and develop healthier relationships with food. With a registered dietitian on staff, students can book one-on-one consultations and attend cooking classes and workshops to explore culinary options they never knew existed. “We rebranded in 2018 to encompass the wellbeing portion of our name, which was really intentional,” says Hobson. “When we began designing this center, we were able to add about 5,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to wellbeing—a meditation and mindfulness room, massage therapy areas, peer-to-peer coaching areas, and a restorative space that holds our nap pods—and now we are helping to serve our students’ physical health as well as their mental health.” Photo by Recreation & Wellbeing, University of Wisconsin-Madison Photo by Althea Dotzour, University of Wisconsin-Madison



WELLNESS Photo by Althea Dotzour, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The inclusion of these wellbeing-focused spaces moves the center toward its mission of helping students find a sense of self at the Bakke, and the myriad options available to students also create an incredible amount of diversity in terms of the types of students who access the space. On any given day, you may have a more traditional user coming to run on a treadmill, followed by an undergrad practicing ice skating for the first time and students learning the proper way to dice an onion and create a nutritious meal for themselves. Other activities at the center include sports simulators, a colorfully lit cycling studio, four full-sized basketball



courts, the 32-foot-high Mt. Mendota Climbing Wall, and the 13-foot Bouldering Wall. The stunning natural setting of the Bakke adds to the overall sense of health and well-being, with lake views from several workout areas and exterior walking paths through wooded areas. Having all the different recreational opportunities available under one roof was a planned outcome from the beginning of the design process. In addition to the overarching goal of developing healthier students, the design also purposely focused on building a more profound sense of self for students and cultivating a stronger community at the same time.

Though the Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center has only been open for several months, the impact began immediately. “The energy we felt on opening day motivates us to provide the best programs and services to all of our students, and there is no better facility to do that in,” says Hobson. “Our students are absolutely blessed to have such an incredible facility that can impact them holistically in all the dimensions of their wellbeing. There really is something for everyone at the Bakke.” ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN

What Is Ayurveda? Ayurveda (“knowledge of life”) is an integrated system in the web of existence and a part of the whole universe, according to Suheila Mouammar, Ayurvedic medicine practitioner at Five Sense Collective, a wellness and retreat center in Malibu, California. The system is based on the interplay of five elements: space, air, fire, earth, and water, each of which exists in nature and are integral in the functioning of the human body. The practice of Ayurveda originated in India over 10,000 years ago and still feels relevant in stressful modern times. “Ayurveda is a participatory healing modality that requires the individual to take full responsibility for their health and well-being through the choices we make,” explains Mouammar. So, how do you make the right choices? Start by learning your dosha.




What Is A Dosha? In Ayurveda, a dosha is the blueprint of each individual. Everyone is a unique combination of three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha —with one typically being the most dominant. “Each dosha is associated with a certain body type, a certain personality type, and a greater chance of certain types of health problems,” says Mouammar. “A person has his or her own balance of the three, although one usually is

prominent.” She explains that Doshas are constantly being formed and reformed by food, activity, and bodily processes. “Each dosha has a particular relationship to body functions and can become imbalanced for different reasons.” An individual’s dosha has impact on their energy, health, and mood which is why it’s important to work to keep them in balance. Knowing your dosha or combination of doshas is key to your overall wellbeing.

The Three Doshas





According to Mouammar, Vata types are typically described as slim and energetic. They also tend to be multitaskers with irregular appetites, which isn’t unexpected for those who are always on the go. Unfortunately, this means they can suffer from physical and emotional burnout. This type also tends to have dry skin as well as brittle hair. So, if you’re a Vata—use a good moisturizer (Mouammar suggests sesame and avocado oils) and deep conditioner. Vata types can benefit from strengthening and balancing exercises such as yoga, pilates, and dance. In terms of a diet, Mouammar suggests that Vatas need hearty and grounding foods such as rice and beans, soups, avocados, and zucchini, along with fruits like mangoes and dates.

“Most of us know a Pitta when we see one,” Mouammar says. “Pitta types are usually physically strong and proportional, level-headed when in balance, and angry when out of balance.” Pitta individuals can be highly motivated and goal-orientated. Their skin is generally the most sensitive of the three doshas, so they should avoid harsh soaps and follow a gentle skincare routine. The best foods for Pitta types, who in general metabolize foods well, are salads, steamed vegetables, legumes, wholesome soups, and snacks like hummus and pita bread. Imbibing coconut milk and coconut water is also good for this dosha. “Fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi, and berries are also cooling and calming for the fiery Pitta,” says Mouammar.

Kapha types are usually calm, easygoing people. Mouammar says they often have larger bone structures. They can sometimes have slower metabolisms if out of balance. In terms of personality, they are known for being empathetic and compassionate. Their laid-back manner means they are not inclined toward ultra-competitive sports – instead, ideal exercise choices could be recreational swimming, long walks, gentle jogs, and relaxed bike riding. The best foods for Kapha types are steamed veggies, collard greens, eggplant, quinoa, lentils, and salads. Mouammar suggests eating wholesome and healthy meals, avoiding anything fatty, canned, and processed, such as fast foods. However, this dosha should indulge in fruits such as berries, pomegranates, and grapefruits.


Additional Therapies Once a dosha is recognized, Ayurvedic practitioners can provide treatments to facilitate a cleansing process—called “panchakarma”—designed to alleviate symptoms and restore body harmony. These can include massage, therapeutic oils, herbs, teas, and laxatives.

Balance Is Key In Ayurveda, it is believed that imbalances may be caused by an unhealthy lifestyle or diet, too much or too little mental and physical exertion—or not being adequately protected from the weather, chemicals, or germs. “It is believed that a person’s chances of developing certain diseases are related to how their doshas are balanced, the state of their physical and emotional health, and lifestyle factors,” says Mouammar. So whether you’re ready to get fully on board with Ayurveda or just discover a bit about it, the big takeaway from this ancient approach is to strive for a more balanced life today. “If you can figure out the process of restoring and keeping balance and harmony in the inner world, then the chances of restoring and staying balanced and in harmony with the outer world should be easier and viceversa,” advises Mouammar. “Our bodies’ systems are the microcosms of the entire earth system, so if you can be aware of the process of disharmony and disease in the microcosm, then we can begin the process of healing and bringing harmony back to the macrocosm—our planet Earth.”

Ayurveda’s “Miracle Tea” The pungent combination of cumin, coriander, and fennel (CCF) makes this tea a health powerhouse. Suitable for all three doshas, savory and subtly sweet CCF tea has an overall warming effect and soothes and calms your digestion. INGREDIENTS: 2 cups water 1 teaspoon coriander seeds 1 teaspoon cumin seeds 1 teaspoon fennel seeds PREPARATION: 1. Boil water in a stainless-steel saucepan. 2. Add the seeds. 3. Allow it to boil for at least five minutes. Remove from heat. 4. For a stronger brew, steep for an additional five minutes. 5. Strain into a teacup or mug and enjoy!

McKenzie at the construction site for the newest Sub-Zero manufacturing location in Goodyear, Arizona. It will be the third facility the company will operate in the area.



t is often said that working at Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove is like being part of a big family, and Laura McKenzie is one of the longest-standing members. “I’ve been with the company for twenty-three years,” says McKenzie, now the Senior Director of Manufacturing for the Arizona sites, who started when she was a college student at UW

Madison. “I had a friend working at Sub-Zero who asked me if I would be interested in doing a Co-op there,” she says. “I met a bunch of wonderful people and never left!” McKenzie, who graduated with an industrial engineering degree, began her career as an engineer across many of the products at Wolf. She worked there for nine years until the opportunity arose to move out of state. “The company had outgrown our Phoenix site and was relocating that production to a new location in Goodyear, AZ,” says McKenzie. “I had just gotten married, and my husband travels for work, so we thought about the warmer winters and the chance to see more of the country and decided to give it a try.”

Laura McKenzie has decades of experience at Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove, with many exciting developments still to come.

Spending the next seven years in Arizona proved to be an invigorating chapter in her career. “Being part of the line set up, getting the building ready, and bringing new products into the Arizona location was an excit-

ing part of my experience within the company,” says McKenzie, who drew

from her tenure at Sub-Zero for the new position. “I think what helped me during that project is that I understood a lot of our day-to-day production needs and understood how we operate, so I was able to take what I knew

from my manufacturing background and ensure that what we were building out was going to work for our needs. It was a great experience, and I learned a lot from it.” McKenzie returned to Wisconsin for a new round of projects in the

engineering department, and then, once again, Arizona beckoned. “I have been in the engineering group for most of my career at Sub-Zero, but

when the company said they wanted to launch a new way of managing our manufacturing sites, I took that opportunity.”




“I want us to lay out a game plan as a group...and continue producing the highest quality products, safely and efficiently.” Now, in her new role, she is responsible for all of the man-

way, and also the day-to-day experience with employees on the

safely and efficiently.”


From managing the Goodyear location, where the company builds the Designer Series, to the Phoenix location, which handles service, parts, and sales accessories, McKenzie has her hands full. “Both locations are integral to ensuring all of our sales accessories and service parts are getting out to our different channels in the market.” There are many hands helping along the way, she says. “We’ve got different leaders in all these areas, and my role is to orchestrate them to come together to ensure that we get our products to our customers.” Another massive project that McKenzie is working on is the latest Arizona-based Sub-Zero location, which, at completion, will total more than 600,000 square feet of manufacturing space. “Rick Stanton is overseeing the Camelback construction project, and I’m closely involved with planning for the operations inside that site,” she says. “The expansion is incredible and will really help us in our production needs going forward,” she says. When she does have some downtime, she and her husband love to travel and see more of her adopted state. “The last time I lived here, we never made it to the Grand Canyon. So, we finally went there for a long weekend, and it was as spectacular as I imagined it would be.” The couple also enjoys golfing, walking, and hiking, often with their cuddly Westie, Winston, in tow. “I will admit, he’s like our baby,” she laughs. “He travels everywhere with us.” Of course, you can take the woman out of Wisconsin, but you can’t take the Wisconsin out of the woman, and McKenzie stays true to her favorite hometown sports teams. “My husband and I both like sports, whether we’re playing or watching, and we are definitely big Wisconsin sports fans - no surprise there!” Whether in the Midwest or the Southwest, McKenzie finds a through-line in her career with Sub-Zero. “If you have ideas, not only in design and engineering but also within the manufacturing sphere, they are receptive and supportive.” She feels that she has had incredible opportunities to try different things. “Sub-Zero has put me in the position to learn and grow and contribute to the company,” she says. “I just really love working here!”

McKenzie and her husband love to bring their Westie, Winston, with them whenever they travel throughout their adopted state of Arizona. ISSUE 4 | THE LIVING KITCHEN




The architectural masterpiece, the Crown at the Tribune Tower in Chicago, was the setting for a spectacular summer event hosted by Sub-Zero Group Midwest. “Our Honoring Partnership and Success evening was created as a thank you to our local builders,” says Zachary Gasiorowski, Regional Marketing Manager. Several years ago, Sub-Zero Group Midwest launched a partnership with the Tribune Tower to install Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove appliances in all the residences. “We were given an amazing one-of-a-kind space,” says Gasiorowski. The August 2023 event was held over two nights as Sub-Zero Group Midwest’s closest partners were treated to live classical music, delicious bites, signature cocktails, and fantastic raffle prizes. “The weather was perfect, enabling all guests to view a picturesque sunset over Lake Michigan from one of the best views in the city,” says Gasiorowski. “It was an incredible evening in an exquisitely designed space that helped strengthen our industry friendships and toast our relationships.”
