SCENE

Bluejacket Shipcrafters, on Route 1 in Searsport, is the oldest ship modeling company in the U.S., founded in 1905. While steeped in tradition, the company also leverages the latest in social media and online marketing efforts to promote its business and serve its customers from all over the world. All kits and accessories are built on site, in many cases using the methods that have been in place for more than 100 years. They are well known to ship model enthusiasts, professionals and museums alike. For years, I had driven by their location and never realized what a resource it is, or that products like this were still manufactured here in the U.S., much less in Maine. Jeff and Suzi Marger moved here from New York and purchased the company more than 10 years ago, attracted by the strong reputation and loyal customer base. They quickly realized, however, that the business needed to be moved into modern times. Since purchasing it, they have installed a high-tech inventory management and customer relationship management system that assists them in managing orders and recognizing what kits customers have purchased and what additional ones they may need. They have developed a highly successful website, a Facebook page, send monthly email newsletters, and have their detailed and beautiful catalog of products now available for download online. On a recent visit, Suzi Marger gave me a tour, showing me the entire process of molding the accessories, which are in many cases a small fraction of actual size – think about a silver ships’ wheel the size of your pinky fingernail, to developing and packaging the kits. Many of the kits are modeled after actual ships, and the level of detail is amazing. The company also does extensive renovation work, and custom builds. They have built several

detailed and large-scale models that are featured in museums, corporate offices, universities, and more. When I visited, they were working on a large-scale model for Maine Maritime Academy that was amazing. But not all model ships are complicated; many want to build a simple sail or lobster boat for relaxation and display in their home, and Bluejacket shipbuilders has plenty of options there. Many customers purchase model ships fully assembled for decoration and appreciation in their homes, and they are simply beautiful. Interested in learning more? The company offers classes to help local enthusiasts. On Sept. 14, it is offering a session on model ship rigging. Want to try it out for yourself? The catalog is available for download on the website and Facebook page. Currently, Bluejacket is running a Spring Special on its Facebook page offering a free paint kit with the purchase of any model over $100. Or, stop by and look around. The balance of history and tradition with modern convenience makes BlueJacket Shipcrafters a true local gem. To learn more, visit facebook.com/bluejacketshipcrafters.

SCENE

June 2011

‘Thor’

Fritz: I couldn’t help but being reminded of classical mythology where gods would visit Earth and “conquer” multitudes of mortal women for sport.

Plot synopsis

“Thor” is the origin story of a muscle-bound, magic hammer-wielding superhero based on a god of Norse mythology. Chris Hemsworth plays the bearded hero in this film adaptation directed by Kenneth Branagh, based on the Marvel comic books of legendary Stan Lee.

Dan: We should probably mention the great cast including Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, and Rene Russo (apparently out of retirement). Idris Elba stands out as the gatekeeper between worlds, and you may know him from “The Office” and the British mystery series “Luther.” Also be on the lookout for Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker”), uncredited, as Hawkeye. He’s going to be in the Marvel movie “The Avengers.” I also like Clark Gregg as agent Phil.

Thor is the heir to the throne in the wondrous realm of Asgard, a golden palace floating among the clouds and stars. The warriors are viewed as gods by the humans they visit in ancient times due to their powers. In his arrogance and defiance, Thor breaks an uneasy peace between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants. For this he is banished by his one-eyed warrior king father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). He lands on Earth and runs into a team of scientists headed by Natalie Portman.

Dan: I kind of wish we could do a Norse mythology movie without it being a comic book thing. Fritz: I do too but, as a comic book nerd, I took this for face value: a Marvel rendition of the legends, and liked it for that. All in all, I thought it was an enjoyable experience. Unlike many movies, nothing in “Thor” stood out as particularly bad. Dan: I was digging the 3D experience this time around. It’s a fun movie and even though I’m tired of superheroes, I think this felt less by-thenumbers than something like “Spiderman.” Fritz: The movie is unlike other superhero movies because it has actually little to do with Earth. I liked that. It was different and more magical. Almost everything else was pleasantly surprising. The acting was good, the script was fine, and Kenneth Branagh’s directing left me satisfied. The 3D didn’t hurt either, although I don’t think it made a huge difference.

7

Dan: I need to mention this is one of those fantasy movies where they use a regal-sounding British accent as the default for “fantasy land” lingo.

Fritz: Don’t forget Stan Lee’s cameo, which I imagine is required for these things now. On another note, I was impressed with the worlds that the movie created. I was always happy when the movie wasn’t on Earth. Using CGI the filmmakers did a great job of detailing the landscapes and worlds. Well, Earth was pretty much the same.

Fritz: It may just be because I’m a guy, but my one bone to pick with the movie is its romance subplot. The movie starts off great and there are subtle hints of chemistry, but then it takes a sharp left turn onto lover’s lane and crashes. The romance bit seemed forced like something producers felt they needed to get girlfriends to come. As if Thor’s eight-pack abs wouldn’t do the trick. Dan: Exactly. The romance really doesn’t have time to go from “I met you yesterday and talked to you twice” to “I will return for you no matter what.” Portman should be careful. After being the forced, awkward, tacked-on love interest in the Star Wars movies and this, she could end up typecast.

bottom

line

Dan’s Bottom Line: This movie has a strong cast and plenty of action. I think the comic book superhero thing has been done to death, but at least this was different. Origin stories have a tendency to be weak given their exposition at the beginning and their inconclusive endings, and I can’t help feeling like this effort to tie this to Iron Man and the Hulk and Captain America to create some Marvel super-franchise is more about money than making me, the viewer, happy. But there’s no need to over-think the first big movie of the summer season. I also commend it for at least being family-friendly. 6.5/10.

Splitscreen By Daniel Dunkle & Fritz Freudenberger

Fritz’s Bottom Line: It was an overall good movie. Nothing stood out as bad and it had all the elements it needed to be likable: most notably a strong cast. I don’t think it took any risks, thus no gain. So it wasn’t spectacular. However, I was into it the whole time and would probably see it again. Even the poorly thought out romance didn’t ruin it for me. 7.5/10.

I am not the man I used to be. To date I have lost 97 pounds. I’m feeling great. On May 14, I walked nine miles from Camden to Rockland. It was a lot easier then I thought so I did it an hour faster then I thought I would. I have been walking and working out, committed to a healthy diet; but, the weight loss has slowed down. The one Big thing I have learned is I have to do this for me. In the past I have set myself up for failure; but, I am learning to overcome that with the positive people I have in my life. John Jeffers and Steve Roberts have invited me to their ultimate workshop in June. This will help me learn to love myself and take care of myself, and ultimately change my lifestyle to take care of me.

June 2011 The following is a series of articles relating to social media trends, tips and tricks for your personal and business lives by Shannon Kinney of Dream Local. She has more than 15 years of experience in the development of successful Internet products, sales and marketing strategy. She has worked on the teams developing successful Internet brands such as cars.com, careerbuilder.com, over 60 online media properties for newspapers all over the U.S. and Canada, and has worked with high profile companies such as Google, Microsoft, Yahoo! and many others on their online strategy development.

You’ve got your business page, now what?

Spreading your wings on Facebook OK, you’ve done it. You’ve built a Facebook page for your business. You’ve got a few fans and made your family and personal friends join in, and you’ve added a few posts and photos. Now what? When do the riches come? How do new people find out about your page? The answer is what we call outbound marketing, and the good news is, Facebook has come a long way in facilitating this. Outbound marketing consists of finding places where your potential customers may be on Facebook and making posts there. This allows you to go out and find people instead of waiting for them to come to you.

11

When you choose this, you can go to other pages (personal and business) and everything you write, like, comment on, and post, will be from your business.

Comment on conversations: While posting on page walls is effective, a way to gain even more attention is to find conversations / posts on other pages that have a lot of likes and comments. Then, add to the conversation by making a relevant comment as your business. Then, all of the people that have commented and liked will see your post and be exposed to your business page.

Here are the ways you can do it:

Tag your business in photos: Last week, Facebook added in the ability to tag your business in photos. You can tag people, but also your business, and this increases exposure for you by showing everyone that views that photo a link to your page. You can also comment on the photos as your business. Outbound marketing can be time consuming, but can also provide tremendous return in broadening your audience and growing your fan bases. We hope these tips have been helpful for you!

“Tag” other businesses (and people) in your posts: Ever wonder how people get links in their status updates? It’s called tagging, and is a powerful tool. Each time you do it, you provide a link to the page or person you are referring to, and your post will also show up on their pages – a great way to reach out and connect you to a broader audience. The way to do it is to first use the @ symbol just before the person or business name you want to link to without any spaces. You should see a drop down appear with the options, choose them, and your link is made. Tip: you must be a friend of the person or fan of the business for this to work, and it does not work from mobile phones.

“Like” other business pages: Find businesses that you collaborate with, frequent, or that also attract your target customers. Visit and like their Facebook pages, then find in the lower left side of the page a link called “Add to my page’s Favorites.” This then links the two pages, and allows you to post as your business there. Post on other page walls as your page: To do this, when you are on your business page, you will see a link near the top right that says “Use Facebook as your business name.”

Ten

years ago when the graduating class of Medomak Valley High School started the Crusin’ to Graduation auto and motorcycle show, students probably didn’t realize they started one of the school’s more extremely successful fundraising events. What started with about 90 exhibitors has grown more than four times that to almost 400. Sponsors help cover the cost of brochures, banners, trophies and more so that the funds raised from the car show can go towards MVHS graduations. Last year, with the enormous support of the community, they were also able to give a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior entering the automotive field.

Held the first Sunday in May, more than 36 classes of cars, trucks and motorcycles filled the parking lots at the MVHS campus. Trophies were given for each of the classes. Some were asked in-depth questions about the work done to their cars and some were asked to start the engines and let them roar so all could hear. Not just a car show, Crusin’ to Graduation had a greenhouse plant sale, “Mater” from the movie cars, door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, a kids pedal car parade, and more. From the steady crowd of people on May 1, the 10th annual Cruisin’ to Graduation car show looked to be yet another tremendously successful year.

Reflections on becoming a mom Whether you become a mother by giving birth or by adoption, whether your baby is delivered naturally or by cesarean, whether you nurse or bottle feed, are single or married, motherhood transforms. For some, it changes a course entirely, as was the case for Maine mom Amy RobbinsWilson. Six weeks before her due date, Amy found herself on a hospital gurney being rushed into surgery. She was losing blood and so was her baby due to a placental abruption. When she asked if she could talk to her husband, the surgeon replied, “If he calls in the next one minute, you can.” She realized that the only thing within her control was her breathing and she tried to relax and breathe as calmly as she could for her baby. Her son was born by emergency C-section and was rushed to a neonatal intensive care unit in Bangor as soon as he was able to travel. Amy had to stay at her local hospital to recover and regain her own strength so they spent their first night apart. The next afternoon, the hospitals arranged to transfer her to Bangor and she was finally able to hold her baby. When that precious moment came, she made a promise that she would do all she could to support other moms and babies. “At that time, I had no idea how that promise would be fulfilled,” she said. As a new mom, Amy struggled through episodes of post partum panic and some major baby blues.

“I felt lost and lonely as a mother” Amy said. “I was completely in love with my son but we had just moved away from my family and I was nervous to talk to anyone about how I was feeling because I was afraid they would think I was a ‘bad’ mother.” Her friend Michelle from Rockland helped her put it in perspective. She said: “Amy, you have gone from being an independent, energetic, adventurous, and self-sufficient person to being at home with your baby. You are on a new path now.” It was then that Amy understood that she was transforming. She realized that her baby was not only her son, but also her teacher and she began to write.

SCENE

Amy has a Facebook page, facebook.com/ avoicefornewmoms, that offers two more lullaby MP3s, as well as great mothering tips and inspiring thoughts.

By Shannon Kinney That writing became Amy’s first book, “Transformational Mothering,” which was awarded a Mom’s Choice Award for excellence in 2010. She also produced a companion CD of prayers and lullabies for a mother’s day, “The Divine Hours of Motherhood,” which won a Mom’s Choice Award Gold Medal. Looking back, Amy said: “I feel like I found my true voice on the other side of those first years. When I sing now, my voice has more depth. When I write, I feel more gratitude and compassion. The focus of my work is to be a voice for new moms and support other moms in finding their voices and mothering styles.”

She’s also the Lullaby Lady at lullaby-link.com where she works to educate parents about the importance of early childhood music. “If we sing to our children they will know that music comes from people, not just from a TV, radio, or computer,” she said. “This leads them to follow our example and become creators of music, not just consumers. You don’t have to have a perfect voice. You just need to be willing to claim your voice and sing (or chant, or rap…)” To get great tips on how to integrate music into your day with your child, go to lullaby-link.com and sign up for her free series of videos.

Being a new mom isn’t limited to being a first time mom. “Whenever you have a new baby you have a new relationship” Amy said. “This relationship is informed by all the others you have ever had. I think the saying is true that ‘No one has the same mother.’ Each child changes you, you grow and deal with things differently so each time, you are a new mom.” Amy offers free support at amyrobbinswilson. com. Subscribers receive free music, free reports and free video “ehugs” for moms. eHugs are short one to two minute videos that are designed to life the spirits of new moms and let moms know they are not alone. There are also quick and easy tips to make their lives easier.

“E-Hugs are just what I wanted when I was feeling alone” says Amy. “ I wanted a friend to come to my house and give me a bit of encouragement, make me laugh and maybe offer a tip that would help me care for my baby.”

Amy has also developed a new kind of baby music class called “Mommy Jingles”! Mommy Jingles is a new kind of baby music class that is specifically designed to give parents musical cues to use with their babies and toddlers throughout the day. These cues helps moms solve everyday parenting dilemmas like: bed time struggles, car trips, hair washing and tooth brushing, just to name a few. Learn more at mommyjingles.com. “I love my life,” said Amy. “I love that my husband and I are working together to help mothers around the world. I love that my son happily sings throughout the day. Every time I get a note from a mom saying that a tip or a lullaby really helped them I am on cloud nine! Last month, we reached more than 117 countries thanks to the blessing of the internet. What a miracle!” Has it really been that easy? “Oh, there was no easy!” she laughed. “My husband has spent endless hours educating himself so that we could build these sites and bring this information to as many people as possible. We spend every day telling people about our resources and making connections as well as developing new content. Our journey has not been easy but it has been inspired. We are passionate about what we do and I think that passion attracts people and miracles. “

Q&A with Rick Hirsch, chef and co-owner of Damariscotta River Grill What initially inspired you to get into the culinary arts?

The desire to travel. I knew if I could cook, I could go anywhere and find a job.

Where did you get your start?

I was in Alaska trying to get a job in the fish canneries and they weren’t hiring. I was running out of money and went in the back door of the only decent restaurant in Seward, Alaska, called The Breeze Inn. The diswasher didn’t show up that day, so I said, “I’m your man!” I started working there and was watching the cooks and thought, “I can do that.” And so I learned how to cook and started traveling around. It was a great way to find work — in Alaska, the Caribbean and here in Damariscotta working at what was the Back Street Landing. That’s where Jean, who’s now my wife, and I met. I decided then that I’d found my calling and went to culinary school at Johnson and Wales in Providence, Rhode Island.

What do you consider one of your greatest professional achievements? Maine Restaurant Association Chef of the Year 2010.

What is the best part of running a restaurant?

Two things: When guests come in and have a really great experience — particularly someone I know. When someone sticks their head in the kitchen and says, “That was awesome!” That is very rewarding to me. The other is the chance to mentor young people who want to get into this industry and need some help finding their way.

What is your favorite dish to create?

When I’m developing a menu item, working with the men and women in the kitchen, batting around ideas and next thing you know you hit the mark.

If you were marooned on a desert island, what meal would you most want to eat? I always say that if there was only one food, it would be potatoes. But favorite dish? Next question.

Why did you choose the Midcoast to live and work?

I love the seasons. I love that we get some down time in the winter for family and travel. And it’s just a beautiful place. The people here have a great work ethic and are Tim Badgley loyal. A perpetual fan of great food and good drink, Tim Badgley enjoys exploring the dining scene in Knox and Lincoln Counties.

What are the most important elements of a restaurant kitchen?

Everyone has learned their job and we get out of the way and let them do it. I want to have trust and faith that everyone will accomplish what we need them to do in a timely manner and with a lot of care and consideration for the guests.

What are your favorite cooking tools?

Immersion blenders are awesome. And I like big Hobart mixers - the floor model.

If you could not be a chef, what might you be? A professional golfer.

Summer solstice celebration The summer solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s tilt is most inclined towards the sun. Though the summer solstice is an instant in time, the term is also used to refer to the day on which it occurs. The day on which solstice occurs is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight, which works out great for us, with more daylight to try some great beers? And with more and more craft brewers upcoming continually, the flavor profiles will be plenty full. So join beer lovers across the nation in celebration of the solstice, except if you live in the polar regions, where daylight is continuous for many months during the spring and summer. Lucky dogs! Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied from culture to culture, but most cultures have held recognition of sign of fertility, involving holidays, festivals, as the one in Rockland, gatherings, rituals and other celebrations, even a celebrated brewed beer! Let the celebration begin. A style of beer that has become most popular during the summer months is the lager. Lagers are fermented using a strain of yeast that ferments at cooler temps (45 to 55 degrees F) unlike its counterpart the ale, which is fermented at about room temps. This fermentation process in combination with the mash and grist schedule produces a very clean crisp and sometimes fruity palette pleasing beer.

By Richard Ruggiero

A graduate of Siebel Institute for Brewing Studies in Chicago, Ruggiero worked as a consultant across the east coast setting up micro-brewery on Long Island, N.Y. called James Bay Brewing Company. In 1995 he relocated to Rockland, Maine to build Rocky Bay Brewery which closed in 2007. He is now the brewmaster at the new Shag Rock Brewing Company in Rockland, located at Amalfi’s Restaurant on the water.

Logger Lager from Atlantic Brewing Company in Southwest Harbor is a perfect example of this style of beer. Atlantic Brewing company began at the Lompoc Grill in Bar Harbor during the invasion and hay day of the craft brewing industry, then later became a full fledged brewing company when relocated to Southwest Harbor. The lineup of uniquely fine brewed beers has been increasing in demand over the years, with Logger Lager being a fairly new addition to their expansive line up. Logger Lager pours into the glass with a pale golden color leaving a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma of hops and malt immediately take to your senses. The smooth malty aroma along with a moderate aroma of hops, give this beer a true lager profile. Not at all a light beer, the flavor is full bodied and has good malt to a delicate balanced hop character, with a lustfully dry finish. This is a true lager, not full of adjuncts like corn and rice. It’s smooth and quite enjoyable. The mouth feel is wonderfully delicate with still being full bodied, with perfect carbonation. This is a great drinking lager which makes for a very drinkable beer during the hot summer months. If you are a true lager fan, this beer will bring much pleasure to the palette, and the availability is good as well. Logger Lager is sold in most beverage retail outlets in Maine. I am dying to try this beer on draft! Great hand-crafted beer, brewed right here in Maine. The next style of beer that has become popular during the summer months is the IPA, or India Pale Ale. The India Pale Ale was named during the occupation of India by the British. These British styles of heavy-brewed ales were too much to drink in the hot humid climate of India, so the British government contacted British brewers to brew lighter full bodied ale to make the long journey to India for consuming by British troops and the like. At the time, most beers were unfiltered, making the shelf life of the product unable to survive the long boat ride to India. But hops, being a natural preservative in beer, the brewerys were adding a huge amount of hops in the boil and also late hopping to give the beer a stable environment to survive the journey. Hence the name for the India Pale Ale stuck to the style over the years. Sierra Nevada Brewing Company located in Chico, Calif., has been brewing fine ales and

Source: sierranevada.com/beers/torpedo lagers since the late 1970s. A new addition to their lineup is Torpedo Extra India Pale Ale. This fine ale pours in to the glass with a brilliant copper color, and an off with creamy rich head. The first notable sense is the great floral aroma of hops and a slight aroma of fruitiness. As the beer passes over the palette, the assertiveness of the hop profile hits your taste buds like a freight train, a big up front bitterness that subsides quickly to balance out to the sweetness of malt flavor without being harsh. Perfect to style! The sweetness of malt allows the hops to take center with your taste buds without being dominate, a well balanced beer. The carbonation level is not overbearing either as with most beers. This ale is well brewed and easy drinkable for an IPA. Torpedo will be the first bottled beer to use Citra hops, a uniquely flavored hop that has a big bitter profile. Overall, I love both these beers — Logger Lager and Torpedo. Both beers have great profile to style and both are very drinkable. Hats off to hand crafted beer! Come join the celebration and toast the summer solstice with beer lovers alike. Hurry up though; we all know how long summer lasts! Happy Solstice. Cheers, Rich

Casual Dining, Amazing Views & Great Food

This month’s Brew Review takes us away from the World of Craft beer and back into the kind of good-old fashioned Americun workin’ class beers that have gotten our nation through tough-economy times. I’m talking Café Miranda’s White Trash Selection, which you can drink by the can or the pitcher. As for cost you can’t beat it: the motto is: “two fifty pretty nifty — two and a half don’t laugh.”

Narragansett:

The local favorite of all the old folks around here affectionately known back in the day as “the ‘Gansett” or “Nastygansett” has apparently dubbed itself “the Official Beer of the Clam.” Question: When did bi-valves get a vote on this? What about the mollusks’ rights? One sip of this crystal clear workin’ brew with its golden straw color and tinge of malt notes and you’ll be transported back to the shrubs behind the high school in 1985 all over again.

Colt 45:

The real star of the joint is the 40-ounce Colt 45 sold in a paper bag, which is really slumming it in terms of White Trash Selection as anybody who has gagged down this malt liquor can attest. According to 40ouncebeer.com you’ve got to “throw it in the freezer for 30 minutes then drink it quick, because once it starts getting warm it tastes like Chewbacca’s ass.”

Genesee Cream Ale:

Your dad’s “Genny Cream Ale” was cool before you knew what cool was, you room-temp PBR swilling hipsters. With its, light hop and easy drinkability, this was the brew your dad drank in 1978 kicking back on his Charlie Brown striped sofa in piped gym shorts and tube socks, not because he was trying to impress some chick with his “ironical” beer, but because a six-pack cost $1.49*

Cappy’s puts the happy in happy hour

SCENE

Featured bartender: Noah Magro Camden has a wide variety of fun restaurants and bars that offer unique experiences for every taste. Nestled in the heart of it all is a local favorite for more than 32 years, Cappy’s Chowder House. There are many things to love about Cappy’s, but top on my list is the cozy atmosphere with quirky décor (including a keg tap system) built into a Mercury outboard complete with gas tank and the happy hour experience. When visiting again recently, bartender Noah Magro wowed our group with his engaging personality, commitment to making our experience a lot of fun, and, of course, fantastic drinks. There were so many choices to sample of drinks unique to Cappy’s we almost didn’t know where to start – but Noah chose his favorite for me: the Coconut Madras. Wow. I love finding new drinks that balance light and refreshing with a kick, and this one fit the bill. Another favorite is the aptly titled “Cheap Sunglasses” that is perfectly topped with a pair of silly plastic sunglasses and is made with Absolut Citron, 7Up, cranberry and lime juices over ice. And, although Margaritas are common, Noah insisted that he could impress me with his version – so we took him up on it and were not disappointed. Served shaken then straight up, Noah’s margarita delights the senses with just the right hint of Grand Marnier, tequila and lime juices. Delicious!

When I asked Noah what he liked most about bartending, he said with a smile: “Everything you do can make or break your night, it’s up to you to make it a fun experience for yourself and your customers. I take that seriously.” About Cappy’s, he said: “People here sincerely care about our customers, and want them to experience the charm of Cappy’s and of Camden.” We certainly did! Even though the restaurant and bar were quite busy, Noah took the time to make sure we had a great experience, even a little traveler with us who happily left with a balloon and her own pair of cheap sunglasses. In a town full of options for a thirsty gal, one must choose wisely to find just the right experience, and we got that and more at Cappy’s with Noah. Stop in and try for yourself! Cappy’s Chowder House is open every day for lunch and dinner from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. It is located at 1 Main Street in Camden. You can call 207-236-2254 or go to cappyschowder.com.

Maine Weathered Collection

Five drinks to try in Bar Harbor

Many Colors to Choose From!

We asked recent UMaine grad Alison Bromley to take the pulse of one of Maine’s most famous summer towns and let us know what’s worth checking out if you do a Killer Road Trip up there. Here are her recommendations of Bar Harbor’s five signature drinks and where to get them:

SHOT: Scorned Woman

mainewoodworks.com Made in USA

We Sell MORE for LESS Mon. - Thurs. 9 - 5 Fri. 9 - 6 • Sat. 9 - 5 Closed Sundays

This shot is not for the fainthearted, though most drinkers believe it is worth the burn. Made with chili-pepper-infused vodka and a passion fruit puree, it will tingle your taste buds for a couple of minutes. If you visit Bar Harbor, you should always get “scorned.” The flavor has become so famous that you can even get Scorned Woman Sorbet from nearby ice cream shops.

COCKTAIL: Duffy’s Mojito

PHOTOS BY ALISON BROMLEY

Mark “Duffy” Dyer has become a legendary bartender in Bar Harbor because of this traditional Cuban drink. His clear mojitos are a blend of rum, carbonated water, Sugar In the Raw, lime, and fresh mint leaves that are ground on top of the sugar in the glass. The sweetness, citrus, and mint mask the kick of the rum. He is often seen making 10 at a time and never fails to leave the stirrer leaning against a mint leaf on the rim. This cocktail is a must-have when visiting the island.

Available at Havana Restaurant on 318 Main Street

LIGHT BEER: Allagash White

If a beer can be delicate, this one is it. Allagash White is made in Portland, Maine, but is available year-round in Bar Harbor. It is a smooth Belgian style ale that is pale yellow and cloudy because of the yeast in suspension. It has a light one-finger head that disappears quickly, leaving no lace behind. Complementing the creamy wheat taste is coriander and citrus. It is best served with an orange slice or no garnish at all. It has won international awards, even beating out Belgium’s long-time champion beer. Allagash White is perfect for a few rounds on a hot summer day downtown.

DARK BEER: Bar Harbor Espresso Stout

If you prefer darker beers, be sure to give this one a try. Bar Harbor Espresso Stout, made by Maine Coast Brewing Company, is an American stout beer that appears a deep, dark brown with a dense tan head and lace. It smells of freshly ground coffee and tastes like it too. There are hints of roasted grains, chocolate malts, and molasses as well. This is one of the less popular, but better tasting of the Bar Harbor beers.

Available at Jack Russell’s Steakhouse on 102 Eden Street.

LOCAL FLAVOR: Blueberry Cosmo

There are locally named and flavored drinks on every corner in this town, but this Blueberry Cosmo stands out from all the rest. It’s a Maine twist on the original Cosmopolitan, made with Stoli’s blueberry vodka, lime juice, and cranberry juice. It is garnished with Maine’s very own wild berries. Down this delicious cocktail on any night in Bar Harbor.

Available at Portside Grill on 38 Cottage Street.

Sorry folks, just woke up out of my dream state. That’s what the advent of warm weather and thoughts of beer from a cooler does to a man. In reality? We will sit back, clam up and grunt if you gals say something bout our cooking this summer. Don’t get us no sissy apron either and above all, don’t laugh when we screw up, we may not learn from our mistakes but laughing at us sure don’t help.

and spread them in an even layer. Replenish with fresh coals to make a moderately hot fire. Cut the chicken in half though the backbone and brush it all over with the diluted barbecue sauce. Grill the chicken skin side down until lightly charred. Turn and brush it with more sauce. Continue grilling, brushing and turning until the chicken skin is crisp and glazed.

Garlic Barbecue Marinade:

10 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce 2 T. soy sauce 1 onions, shopped 1/4 c. water Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse until thoroughly combined.

Seven-Spice Dry Rub:

1/2 c. brown sugar 1/2 c. paprika 2 T. salt 1/4 c. chili powder 1/4 c. dry mustard 1 T. black pepper 2 t. Old Bay seasoning 1/2 t. ginger In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, paprika, salt, chili powder, dry mustard, black pepper, Old Bay and ginger.

Beer Can Chicken

Propping a whole chicken on an open can of beer and slow-roasting it on the grill may seem a bit unusual, but the result is incredible. The beer vapors do little to moisten the chicken; rather, the vertical position of the bird allows its juices to flow down over the breast, keeping it succulent.

1 c. apple juice 1 c. water 1/4 c. cider vinegar In a large glass measuring cup combine all ingredients and pour into a spray bottle; refrigerate.

2 T. Garlic Barbecue Marinade (recipe follows) 1 four pound chicken 2 T. Seven-Spice Dry rub (recipe follows) One 12-oz. can of beer 1 c. hickory or other hardwood chips, soaked in water Cider Mop Spray (recipe follows) 1/2 c. your favorite barbecue sauce Rub the marinade all over the chicken and refrigerate overnight, or let stand for at least 4 hours at room temperature. Bring the chicken to room temperature and sprinkle the dry rub oil over the skin. Light a charcoal fire in a covered grill and set it up for indirect grilling. When the temperature reaches 225-degrees F, carefully push the hot coals to one side and place a drip pan filled with 1 c. of water on the opposite side. Discard(or drink) half the beer. Stand the chicken upright on the can, with its legs pointing down. Transfer the chicken on the beer can to the grill, setting it over the drip pan, and cover the grill; you will need to cook the chicken for about 3 hours total. To maintain the temperature inside, you will have to replenish the charcoal with a fresh batch of burning coals every hour. Add more water to the drip pan when half of it is evaporated. After the first 45 minutes, rotate the chicken, then drain 1/2 c. of the wood chips and scatter them over the coals. After another 45 minutes, drain and scatter the remaining wood chips over the coals. Rotate the chicken again, and spray the chicken with the mop spray. Rotate and spray the bird twice more, at 45 minutes intervals. The chicken is done when a thermometer reads 170-degrees F. Remove and discard beer can and transfer the bird to a carving board. Remove the drip pan from the grill and stoke the coals

Rubs

The best rub in the world is the rub you like best. More often than not the rub you like best is the one you make yourself. So where do you start? Generally dry rubs start out with a few basic ingredients. Remember that a rub is not only a mixture of spices and herbs, it is a mixture of flavors. A good rub will have a balanced flavor that adds to meats, but doesn’t overpower them. Amount: First of all you want to decide how much to make. Dry rubs can be stored for months, but after time they begin to loose their flavor, so if you won’t use it all in a few months then you’ve made too much. When you are first starting out with a rub make it in small batches, but be sure to record how you made it. You don’t want to come up with the perfect rub only to forget how you made it. I save old spice bottles to hold my rub and put a label on the side with the recipe. I also record the date I made it. This way I know exactly what I am using and how long it’s been sitting around.

Potatoes and Chicken:

Potatoes: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and place 1/4 of the onion, 1 T. of the butter and 1/2 t. of the spice rub on one exposed surface of each potato. Reform 2 halves of a potato to make a whole and wrap tightly in tin foil. Bake potatoes for about 45 minutes or until, when gently squeezed, are soft.

Basic Flavors: You want to start your rub with the basic flavors: salt, sweet, sour, and bitter. Okay, you want to start with salt and sweet, specifically sugar and, well, salt. If you choose plain salt and plain sugar you will get a very basic base with which to start. Of course most people who have been making rubs for a while use something different. Sugar can be white, brown, turbinado or any other kind of sugar you like. If you want to make a wet rub then you can use molasses. These add a different flavor to your rub that can really enhance the taste. As for salt you can go with regular table salt, sea salt, kosher salt, or you can use a flavored salt like garlic, onion or seasoning salts. Salt should actually be measured by weight not volume but as long as you understand the differences between types of salt you will be okay (see: Salt). Simply combining something like brown sugar and garlic salt will give you a pretty decent rub. Start out with a cup of each and you are ready to build up your rub. Building Flavor: These two ingredients make the base of the rub. From here you build on the flavor and the color that will make the rub something that adds to the meat you use it on. For the sake of argument let’s assume that you are using one cup each of sugar and salt. Now add 1/2 cup of paprika. Paprika is great for color but also for its mild flavor. The color is strong so you don’t need as much paprika as you do with the other two. Now you have something that really looks like your typical spice rub. Adding Heat: From here you can start building on the flavor of the rub you want to make. In truth you can simply add some herbs and call it done. A 1/2 cup of oregano or Italian seasoning will round out the flavors and give you a good rub. However it you want a rub with some heat you need to think about adding pepper. Depending on the heat of the pepper you add you can go with anything from about 1/2 cup to a teaspoon or two. If you are adding cayenne I would suggest about 1 tablespoon for a fairly hot rub to 1 teaspoon for something with a touch of heat. You can also choose a variety of chili powders, crushed red pepper flakes or any other dried and ground pepper. Herbs and Spices: To finish off your rub try adding some herbs. As I said before some oregano is a great addition. Remember that it is easier to add something to a rub than it is to take it out. Of course you can simply add additional base ingredients if you end up with something too powerful, but I find it better to be conservative with the herbs and build up later. The best tool for rub building is a good collection of spices. Line them up and add them as you see fit. If you start out making small batches of a rub you won’t end up with a large supply of something that just isn’t working. Experiment.

1 t cayenne 1 T. garlic powder 1 T. salt Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Apply about 2 T. of rub to each side of the rack. Prepare smoker or grill and add ribs.

Poultry Rub

This is a great all purpose poultry rub. It works well on grilled chicken wings or even deep fried turkey. Use Hungarian Paprika if you can find it because it has a much richer, sweeter flavor. 3/4 c. paprika (Hungarian if you have it) 1/4 c. black pepper, freshly ground 1/4 c. celery salt 1/4 c. sugar 2 T. onion powder 2 T. dry mustard 2 t. cayenne 2 T. lemon zest

Texas-Style Brisket Rub

This southwestern-style rub is a great way to spice up brisket. Remember, when applying rub to a brisket, work the rub into the meat anywhere it is exposed. 5 T. paprika Brisket 2 1/2 T. salt 2 T. garlic powder 2 T. onion powder 4 t. black pepper 4 t. dried parsley 2 t. cayenne pepper 2 t. ground cumin 1 t. ground coriander 1 t. dried oregano 1/4 t. hot chili powder

Garlic Rosemary Rub

4 cloves garlic, crushed 2 t. salt 2 t. rosemary leaves 2 t. cracked black pepper Makes: 3 T. Combine all ingredients. Mix until well blended. Rub evenly over the surface of your favorite steaks for grilling.

Tandoori Rub

This rub will give fish or poultry an authentic Indian flavor that is as colorful as it is tasty. 1 T. ginger 1 T. cumin 1 T. coriander 1 T. paprika 1 T. turmeric 1 T. salt 1 T. cayenne Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.

Mustard Rub

Beef Rib Rub

This rub combines the flavors of sweet and heat. You can adjust the heat by using mild or medium chili powder. If you really want to make spice it up, then add an extra T. of cayenne. 1/4 c. paprika 1/4 c. mild or medium chili powder 1/4 c. brown sugar 1/4 c. black pepper

Beef ribs

A classic wet mustard rub that really sticks to the meat. You can use different types of mustard in this recipe in order to change the flavor of the rub. 2 c. Dijon mustard 1 c. minced parsley 1/2 c. dried orange or lemon peel 1/2 c. rosemary leaves, crushed 1/4 c. black pepper 1 T. salt Mix together. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.

Spicy Southwestern Rub

This wet rub packs a lot of flavor. You can adjust the heat by using either hot, medium or mild chili powder. 1 T. chili powder 1 t. ground cumin 1 large garlic clove, minced 2 t. Worcestershire sauce 1 t. coarse salt 1 t. sugar

23

3/4 t. freshly ground black pepper 1/4 t. allspice 1 T. vegetable oil Mash garlic and salt together to form a paste. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic paste, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, pepper, allspice, and oil. Let this rub sit on meat for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Papaya Rub

This wet rub not only has the ability to add flavor, but because of the papaya’s natural tenderizing power, it helps to keep meats tender. 2 T. sugar 2 T. soy sauce 2 T. black pepper 1 T. salt (kosher) 1 papaya, peeled and seeded Slice papaya into thin slices. Combine sugar, soy sauce, black pepper and salt. Mix until sugar and salt dissolve. Rub mixture over the surface of the meat you want to season. Place half the papaya slices on the bottom of a glass baking dish. Place meat on top of slices. Cover meat with the other half of the slices. Cover and refrigerator for 1 hour.

Caribbean Jerk Wet Rub

1/4 c. ground allspice 2 T. ground cinnamon 2 T.. ground nutmeg 1/4 pound ginger, peeled 1/2 large yellow onion 1/4 c. minced garlic 1/4 c. key lime juice 1/4 c. olive oil 1/4 c. chopped fresh thyme 1 ounces chipotle puree 1/2 c. kosher salt 1 c. chopped scallions In a blender, puree all ingredients except for the scallions. Once the mixture is smooth, add it to a large mixing bowl then fold in the scallions. This wet rub is best used with fish or chicken. Add rub with hands then roast or bake fish or meat.

Kansas City Style Ribs

BBQ rubs are the key to authentic KC ribs. Use this while they are slow cooking, then add a Kansas City style BBQ sauce, and you’ll be in heaven! 1/2 c. brown sugar 1/4 c. paprika 1 T. black pepper 1 T. chili powder 1 T. garlic powder 1 T. onion powder 1 T. salt 1 T. cayenne pepper BBQ rubs are usually dry, although they can be wet, or paste-like. Generally you spread them all over the meat and then grill as usual. Some rubs are better if you let the meat sit for a while before grilling, so it can absorb the flavor.

Memphis Style Rib Rub

2 T. paprika 1 T. salt 1 T. onion powder 1 T. black pepper 2 t. cayenne Mix ingredients together. Store in an airtight container. Spread evenly on prepared ribs that have been patted dry and let sit until the rub appears moist.

A Carolina BBQ Rub

2 T. salt 2 T. sugar 2 T. brown sugar 2 T. cumin 2 T. chili powder 2 T. black pepper 1 T. cayenne pepper 1/4 c. paprika Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well; use as a dry rub on beef, chicken, lamb or pork.

I have a long history in theater and nonprofits. There seemed to be a good opportunity to help out. I have a love for the arts and this is a great historic theater; plus, there are a lot of people in this area who love the arts. My current focus is making a distinction between Lincoln County Community Theater, the resident performing group, and Lincoln Theater, an all-purpose performance space that has music, movies, and theater.

Why did you choose the Midcoast in which to live and work?

My grandparents had a place in Boothbay and I visited them practically every summer. In 1988, I was an intern at Maine State Musical Theater where I met my partner, who attended Colby. After living in Manhattan for 25 years we decided to move back here. This is home for us.

Ya, as in ‘hula.’ It’s addictive. It’s more than wiggling the hips and fitness [despite the fact it burns 500 calories in an hour and seven minutes is equal to 150 situps] — it’s creative self-expression.

The Wizard of Oz Hoop Series

This first one is Glitter Red, just like Dorothy’s shoes. It was made with black and red basic tape with white accents. While taping this hoop, The Wizard of Oz theme led me to the next hoop: Return to Oz, which is glitter green, shiny green, with black accents. Finally, one more design in this collection is Over the Rainbow. By far the most time and tape-intensive hoop, this was inspired by a woman who took my hoop-making class and made one that was similar. I was blown away by her creativity and developed the idea and incorporated it in the Oz theme.

Munro Tartan

The last hoop is an ode to my Scottish heritage in the Munro clan tartan plaid. In the past, I created a Stuart tartan for a good friend, and it was a much more complicated pattern. Thank goodness the Munros were a more simple folk! The background is red with hunter green being the secondary color. Cobalt blue and white make a diagonal pattern as highlights.

I had a fun student in class who requested Orange and Aqua “as gaudy as possible!” This was the outcome. It reminded me of being a kid in the 1970s and staying at a Howard Johnsons. This hoop is, by far, my favorite hoop yet. I think I may have to make a few for myself!

Hoops are so hard to photograph unless professionally done, but this gives an idea of the kind of creativity that can go into a simple hoop....Next stop: LED and fire hoops! For more information about these and other hoops, contact Maria Randolph, hoopmeonline.com

Jennifer Lisa’s punk-elegant jewelry caught my attention last December at the Creatorium and her stuff through Quench Metalworks can be found on Etsy. Here’s her take on these “candy” rings that look yum enough to eat: People are always giving me their old mother of pearl buttons to incorporate into my work. I had yet ventured into colorful buttons until my grandmother presented me with her friend’s cast off sewing notions. In the box was the most fantastic, unused pink buttons. Within a few days, I set the pink button in a lovely sterling ring. I was hooked and scoured flea markets and the Internet for candy colored vintage buttons. The best find was a lot of unused black and white striped buttons. I created what I call my duo button rings... the striped button paired with a solid colored button. The black and white add a bit of extra zest to the ring. Etsy has been the perfect venue for my homebased business. It allows me to stay at home with my pre-school aged daughter, but gives me the tools and opportunity to show and sell my work worldwide. I have customers in many countries including Israel, Japan, New Zealand and France. For more information about Jen’s jewelry: quenchmetalworks. com quenchmetalworks.

Q&A with Nanette Gionfriddo, owner of Beyond the Sea

Nanette Gionfriddo

What is the history of your bookstore?

It opened as a gift shop in 2007! I knew I wanted Persephone Books, but they were to be the only books offered, initially. Then a dear friend asked if I could use some of his second hand books to sell. I said sure. Well, I read a couple of them, and felt I wanted them in the store regularly. So, whatever I could find in print, I added to the new books inventory, and whatever I could find second hand, I added to the secondhand books inventory. The books inventory literally grew and grew from there. The favored books remain in inventory, and I ask customers, family and friends for recommendations, then research those books for quality and merit. Sometimes the recommended book is added to Beyond the Sea’s inventory, and sometimes it leads me to another book or another author. And so it goes. The books have taken over in space and in sales over the other gifts. One of my sisters purchases the second hand books simply on instinct. Then we research each one for quality and merit, of course, before adding them to the store. Her instinct is so good that perhaps one percent are rejected, and I am always surprised when a book isn’t fantastic. Even then, the rejects are usually good, just not good enough! We donate those to libraries. Some of the “rejects” – again which can be very good, have been added to the shelves of local libraries.

What books do you like to read?

Anything that I can feel in my gut. And, it can be joy, or sorrow, fascination, even campy and silly; but, I love a book of any subject that reaches my heart or my funny bone; that when I close the book, I am sorry it ended. “The All of It,” “Rebecca,” “Worst Journey in the World,” “The Snow Leopard,” “William an Englishman,” “Miss Ranskill Comes Home,” “The Diary of a Nobody,” books by Nevil Shute, Jacqueline Winspear, Sir Walter Scott, and every Persephone book that I have read.

What parts of your business are you most proud of?

Well, just this morning, I shook the hand of a man who told me that Beyond the Sea has “the best small collection of books of any bookstore. And I love bookstores.” Different folks have told me time and again, that they would like to read every book they see here. Though, I have to add, that I am also proud that my focus for gifts made by small businesses and individuals enables me to support gifted people by connecting them to shoppers. Offering quality gifts, or books by independent publishers, makes me proud each time Beyond the Sea can place another order with them. But, pride does indeed come before a fall, so I remind myself; it is not I that has the talent!

Do-it-yourself made simple. Top-quality machines with low service hours

Funniest bookshop story?

“I can’t find books at Barnes and Noble, or Borders, but I can find them here.” I hear statements like that a lot and I laugh. What does that mean? I thought. But I know now. And, did you ever watch the TV series “Murphy Brown”? They had a run on joke where each week the secretary would be some kind of surprise oddity. Well, I have a very loved and revered bookseller who had a run for about two years where each of my orders had a surprise of some sort. My sales rep, who is unsurpassed in knowledge and service, was beside himself! I laughed more and more with each order. One time I received a book on the history of Led Zeppelin – which was stunning because this publisher only publishes books about Maine and New England! For a few orders now, there have been no surprises and I miss it!

Featured Book

My

featured book actually has to be my featured independent publisher – Persephone Books, if I may. Persephone Books are readable, intelligent, thought-provoking, and impossible-to-forget books. I am the only brick and mortar store in the states to carry them. A couple of years before I opened Beyond the Sea, one of my sisters was visiting London and purchased five Persephone Books as gifts to each of her sisters, my mother, and herself. We each loved our books, then traded, and felt the same about the other four! I knew when I was creating Beyond the Sea that Persephone Books had to be offered.

No, I’m not coming to spend the afternoon with you if that’s what you were thinking, but I will let you know about this adorable little songstress from Iceland. Singer turned actress turned model turned college student and back to singer, Hafdis Huld is taking over Europe. Her second album Synchronised Swimmers is full of fluttery softness that makes all these rainy days a little more bearable. And if her lyrics and voice aren’t enough to make you want to live in a world full of marshmallows and rainbows, then catch one of her pink kitchen livestreams. That’s right. She’ll sing to you, well not you, but the world, from her little pink Icelandic kitchen. And there will be a lot more pretty little awesomeness coming from Europe soon to help you forget all about that wedding of so-and-so and that chick. Huld is building a studio in her home so she can record more and more. The U.S. tour may have ended in May, but don’t let that stop you from catching her.

It’s hard to calibrate just how much of an homage this movie is to Scorcese’s ‘’Casino.” To elaborate, it comes fully equipped with Russian mobsters, multi-million dollar money schemes, strippers and silly, silly white boys. But aside from all these choice factors, this is truly a story of our times. It’s the well-worn world of Internet porn. The hypocrisy of American moralists and opponents to such smut are on full display. The narration is driven by an excellent Pesci-esque (but not tiring) voice-over by the leading man, Luke Wilson. There are some real LOL moments in this film, perpetrated mostly by the dumb and dumber coupling of Ribisi and Macht. These two play the clones who started a revolution in online service-provider marketing. “It should have been perfect, but in the end, we f__d it all up,” says protagonist Jack Harris, with remorse. (Believe me on the “Casino” comparison now?!) Okay, so some of you might be thinking this is a movie about porn. Clarification: it’s not. (Ha- I sound like Harris to his wife! ) There is honestly not one moment of porn in it... This is a business tale about men and money. Oh, and Jimmy Caan! He’s cool, too!

Most of June will be taken up, for me, by moving and building and painting and readying, as many of you already know, June is the month when Rock City Books transmogrifies into hello hello under my ownership, and moves w/ Rock City to 316 Main St., right next to where we’ve been for lo these many years. So, during moments of rest from all this craziness, I’ll be looking to be distracted by good stories like”The Lonely Polygamist.” The book revolves around Golden Richards, husband to four wives and father to 28 children. Yes. Four wives. Twenty eight children. (Sometimes he recites their names to himself, partly as a calming mantra, partly just to ensure he remembers all of them.) He’s not always the best of guys and/or Mormons, but Golden has no doubt earned the midlife crisis he’s wading around in: His construction business is falling apart, past tragedy haunts, and his family has grown into an “overpopulated minidukedom beset with insurrection and rivalry.”

It’s rough enough that he’s strongly considering an extramarital (would that be extra-extraextra-extra-marital?) affair. It’s an absorbing book, especially because it frequently breaks away into the perspective of others, including a few of his children, wives and folks outside of their (ridiculously wide) family circle, and because who isn’t fascinated by chaotic minidukedoms?

SCENE

Rad Happenings are the kind of events or scenes that are developing here that you will probably want to be hip to.

After this helltastic winter, we all needed spring, which sure took its sweet time getting here. Before you know it, we’ve rounded the corner to June and all of a sudden, it’s summer.

June 19, Lobster Boat Races

Locals know there are two kinds of summer events; the kind that draw a tourist crowd and the kind that people who live here can actually enjoy, too. The Lobster Boat Races appeal to both and the only way to really get the flavor is to party with the locals on the flotilla of lobster boats that raft up opposite the Breakwater as the lobster boats race between. But if you are resigned to landlubbin side, get to the Breakwater early with a couple of folding lawn chairs and your cooler and hunker down. Replacing the recently totaled Instigator will be a new starter boat this year, Tall Tails, and they’re aiming to host Tom O. and Mr. Mike from WTOS radio show to broadcast live from Tall Tales. They’ve got nearly $30,000 in cash and prizes to give away so they can continue to be the “Daytona” of lobster boat races in Maine. Though the lobster boat races will be happening all up and down Maine, Rockland is the place to be on June 19, Father’s Day. There’s also a possibility that another film crew will be on hand to shoot footage for a reality show they’ve been brewing on Maine lobstermen.

June 18, Rockland’s Summer Solstice Evening

Any time you can get an entire Main street to shut down like a good old-fashioned block party with music, food and weird people on parade, you know you’ve got the makings of a good summer party — and this one kicks it off. Rockland’s main drag fills up from 5 to 9 p.m. with all kinds of people, bands and vendors, street dancers and special events.

Featuring Kasey Blood

Kasey Blood, a native to Union, has been practicing Esthetics at RHEAL day spa since April of 2007. In the spring of 2009, she attended the Makeup Designory in New York City where she studied Beauty and High Fashion makeup, as well as Character and Special Effects.

Q: Kasey, tell us what kind of creativity needs to go into skin care and as a makeup artist. In other words, what do you bring to the table with your mad skills?

A: An eye for detail and the ability to help clients find solutions to their skin issues are definitely strengths of mine. I’m always researching and self-educating so when clients have questions, I have the information and resources to help them and meet their needs. It’s my willingness to learn that took me to the Makeup Designory in New York City in 2009. I had been doing bridal makeup with RHEAL and though I did a good job, I didn’t have a formal education. In school, I discovered that my attention to detail and willingness to learn were what made me a creative person.

Q: What are your favorite color schemes to work with on people and why?

A: The colors I use depend on the client. Each person has either warm, cool, or neutral undertones. When I do makeup lessons at RHEAL, I often stick to neutral colors like browns, grays, black and ivory. Anyone can wear neutrals which is the easiest to work with, and people who aren’t used to seeing themselves made up are more comfortable in this palette.

Q: What did you do to satisfy your creative outlets before you started working at RHEAL Day Spa?

A: I love reading. I used to write a lot, too. I find the written word fascinating in that it is possible to paint pictures and evoke a deep feeling through a combination of letters. There’s nothing like a song, poem, or book that can take you out of your own world and transport you somewhere else.

Q: What are your big long term dreams (not goals) but dreams? A: My big dream is to be known for doing something significant. I’d like to be a positive role

model to younger generations, specifically young girls. I feel that self-esteem is crucial to personal success.

Q: Describe your perfect day.

It all depends on my mood. Some days I’ll be doing a large bridal party where I’m in my element slinging makeup, schmoozing with the girls, the energy is flowing and I think, ‘It doesn’t get better than this.’ Other days, I’m in the spa, seeing my regular clients, doing what I do and I’m happy. “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” You can find Kasey at RHEAL Day Spa by visiting rhealdayspa.com

Restaurant Rant

Kerry Alterio chef and owner of Café Miranda, doesn’t just have a Elvis fetish and a bawdy sense of humor; he’s got a passion for food. And not in a foodie/obsessive localist kind of way; in a “we’re fresh, we’re local, we’ve been doing that before it was hip” kind of way. In fact, this month’s Behind thescene sits you, the reader, right smack in the center of his kitchen, with his staff, his Head Farmer Anne Perkins and his friend the Fabulous Renee, so you can “hear” what real people working in restaurants talk about. The topic? the Elitism of The Food Movement, a round table rant taken from his Chef’s Blog. Their conversation follows:

Anne: I’ve run this farm that Kerry has owned for years

in Owls Head [Head Acre Farm] and really got it going in 2009. We’ve got about 2,000 square feet of it fully developed with mostly summer and fall kale and chard, heirloom tomatoes, heirloom string beans and squash. Slowly, we’ve been adding more and more stuff. This is all about the locals, local people, local food and local products. It’s a great way to provide the restaurant with fresh and flavorful food that’s grown organically, but we’re not certified organic. He also has a great bunch of local partners to provide the stuff we can’t provide yet. It’s actually a challenge as a farmer to grow for Kerry because I’d love to grow all the froofy basil blossoms, the fine herbs and the beautiful garnishes; however, growing a baby chard or a baby lettuce or something cutesy like that won’t work because this is real, Italian grandma, heals-your-soul, heals-whatever-ails-youon-a-snotty-winter’s-night kind of food.

Kerry: The miniature vegetables, the juvenile

vegetables are fine because they’re young and tender, but we really make peasant food here — something that feeds your spirit and belly. It’s not “Ego on the Plate.”

Anne: Like I bring him kale, which is a dinosaur

vegetable, because it’s been around forever. I bring it in and....

Kerry (yelling): …and I burn it! Anne: No, no, I bring it in here and he

caramelizes it, he transforms it into mouth candy.

Kerry: The food movement

has a case of multiplepersonality disorder: part flavor-fixated sensualist, part food-miles-obsessed localist and part small-is-beautiful fanatic.

SCENE

Certainly, this local food movement is fabulous in this regard, but at the same time the people who need most of this food aren’t getting it. I’ve said it before that we need a “Trailer Park Initiative.” What that is means getting this kind of food in the hands of the people who need Anne: In Thomaston it’s somewhere it the most. The in the low $40K for a family. middle and upper class will always Kerry: Yeah, can you buy $4 per eat well. They’re pound carrots? Hell, no. What you gonna be fine. It’s can buy is an Encore steak dinner the people who are that will feed five people for 10 pushing it to the bucks. We did a class at the Vohighest calorie for tech school a couple of years ago a buck, buying the called “Share The Table.” We did a McDonald’s sandwich Fiddlehead country style pasta meal from scratch in 30 minutes at who really need it. two bucks a head. We had Brian Hill from Francine, we had James Hatch from Home Kitchen Anne: Organic food can be a luxury, because it is so and five of us did it. I did a braised chicken dish with expensive to purchase at retail. onions and peppers, tomatoes and pasta. Less than two bucks a head, totally healthy and competing Kerry: Those prices are coming down and as more with an Encore dinner. They were like, “Wow, you volume comes through the cost of production goes really can make something like this?” down but really, 10 years ago it was super elitist. Now, it’s getting better; for example, even Walmart To see Alterio’s Chef’s blog on this topic go to is making a movement to buy organic vegetables. cafemiranda.com/chefs-blog

scene

Anne: The problem with the term ‘organic’ is that

it is only a label. A lot of it is farmed in the Imperial Valley, all shipped here. Growing it here, you can reduce the cost of bringing it to the people. The transportation issue is a mile and a half up the road.

Kerry: So, we’re doing that. We’re buying tomatoes

Restaurant rants will be a regular feature of Behind thescene in the future. If you’d like your restaurant staff to partake in another lively topic round table style like this, follow The Killer Convo.

that are not quite ripe and ripening them up here but as soon as the local stuff is available, we use it. This goes back to the “Whattaya Got” theory. In Maine, that’s why we have chowder. In winter time, you had your root vegetables, onions, potatoes, salt pork, salt cod and dairy; hence, chowder. Every regional cuisine was based on what the hell was around at the moment.

Kerry: The other problem

with the food movement is that a lot of it gets priced out of a normal person’s budget. What’s the medium income in Maine?

Meet Todd Zoyoya, math instructor! We couldn’t say it better. A student in Todd’s class this semester writes: “Best math ‘teacher’ I’ve ever had. Actually, best instructor/professor I’ve ever had. Todd, you have a gift. Just know, I appreciate every ounce of positivity you threw forth to a woman who had no hope for feeling passionate about anything math related, but knew her life, somehow depended on getting over that. Thank you for your supportive style.” Another student chimes in: “Todd makes math fun. I had math anxiety, and I have found that now I look forward to anything with math. I have a whole new outlook all because of the supportive and talented teaching methods of Professor Zoroya.”
