APRIL SHOWERS, BRING MAY(GUILT) It starts with my mother’s birthday, right out of the gate on May 1st. Why the guilt? Probably because i’m an awful son! I never remember to call my mother, not just on her birthday -but all year long. Ever since I moved to Savannah and started this magazine, i’ve pretty much neglected to stay in touch with anyone who doesn’t schedule an appointment! I know, I know, i’m digging myself into an even worse hole and by now I’m sounding like a complete schmuck. “What an awwful boy, thinks he’s such a bigshot, too busy to call his own mother.” But its true, I do forget - and then the guilt builds up over time, triggered by the first of May. By the time Mother’s Day comes around, no matter of flowers or chocolates or card will abate the guilt of a year of neglect that is only made worse by my mother’s complete understanding, yet tactful passive condemnation. Ok, so where am I going with this... ah yes, the guilt. I feel guilty for not calling my mother enough, I feel guilty because editor’s letters are supposed to be chipper and talk about how great everything is and what awesome things you can expect to find in this issue. Well not today folks, today the publisher is letting off some steam. Now where was I... I feel guilty because, well to be honest with you - you, the readers who actually read this letter each month - I feel guilty because I think I’ve been letting you down. There, I said it. I know that the past few issues have been slimmer than usual. That there’s starting to be more ads than there is content. I know that the Facebook cover photo hasn’t been updated and last month’s issue never made it online. I know all of you are pretty upset over that Facebook cover photo not being updated, haha - but seriously, I know I should be a better son - I mean, publisher, to you. And i’m sorry I haven’t called. So here’s what we’re gonna do. Instead of me giving excuses about how busy i’ve been or pass the buck on to someone else - how about we just forget about the whole thing and give it another chance? Isn’t that what family is for? For anyone reading this magazine for the first time, “hello” - and please know i’m not usually like this. But I consider you all family and sometimes you end up letting them down and then sometimes you give them another chance. For my friends, family and other loyal readers - I suppose if you’re reading this, then you haven’t given up on me yet - so thank you! It is my goal to really focus on improving the quality and quantity of content, moving forward, and we have some new help on board to get us back on track. In the meantime, I would love to hear from any of you about how we can improve or what you would like to see from us. So email me or give us a call - no appointment necessary. To all our readers and to you too Mom, talk to you soon - I love ya.

Get to know the lowcountry’s local farmers and food producers through this series of Q & A sessions with the vendors of Savannah’s Forsyth Farmers’ Market.

Meet May’s Forsyth Farmers’ Market Vendor of the month! NAME: James Spano, Owner/Roastmaster VENDOR NAME: Cup to Cup Coffee LOCATION: 140 Johnny Mercer Blvd Whitemarsh Island, GA ONLINE: www.CuptoCupCoffee.com MAIN PRODUCTS: Coffee! Retail 12 oz and wholesale 5 lb. bags. OPEN SINCE: Officially in business since ‘09 # OF EMPLOYEES: Outside of the help I get running farmer’s market booths, and occasional help for deliveries from family, it’s just me. I roast, package, and deliver (practically) all of the coffee my clients get. FACILITY DESCRIPTION: The roastery is a tiny little spot besides the marshes on Wilmington Island. Not much room in there to do anything but roast, package, and quality control (drink) coffee.

Does your business name mean anything special? Yes! Cup to Cup is you and me, or you and a friend sitting down and sharing life with one another. Coffee has a wonderful way of bringing people together and opening doors to friendships that would otherwise be closed.

Most popular product: I would definitely say

our Ethiopian Yirgacheffee. Samuel Demisse is a native Ethiopian living in the US who brings in the highest quality coffees from his home country. The Yirgacheffee (pronounced Yirg-a- chef ) has wonderful floral aromas and a slightly sweet berry flavor. -Continued on Next Page

Where does your coffee come from? Is it organic or local? I buy from small importers

who have direct relationships with the farmers they buy from. Because of this I am able to have direct relationships with many farmers and have the opportunity to correspond, ask questions, and learn about coffee farming first hand. Coffee is not grown commercially in the lower 48. Hawaii and Puerto Rico are the only parts of the U.S. that grow coffee for production. The local aspect comes from roasting coffee fresh right here in Savannah. I do not currently carry organic certification, so even though coffees I buy sometimes are organic, I cannot sell them as such. I do strive to source coffees from farms using sustainable growing practices. Often farmers cannot afford organic certification, but address sustainability in how they farm and impose strict growing practices on themselves and those they work with.

Tell us something about yourself or your business that you think would surprise people…. When I wake up in the morning, the first

thing I do is not make a pot of coffee. Well actually it is, but it’s for my wife. I don’t usually have my first cup for an hour or so after I wake up. I rarely rely on coffee as a stimulant to make me functional. I drink it more as something to be savored with each and every sip rather than wake up fuel.

Does your family have a history in the coffee roasting industry? If not, how did you become involved? It is rumored that my Italian grandfather

Most Overlooked product (but shouldn’t be):

and his extended family would go to each other’s house once a week and watch wrestling, drink espresso, and talk in Italian. Outside of that there is no family coffee history that I can speak of. I started working at a coffee shop in college and fell in love with all things coffee. The rest involves circumnavigating the globe, a goat in Mozambique, and learning to roast in Guatemala, but there’s not enough space here to tell you that story. I’d love to tell you sometime over a cup!

Do you have other family members working with you? Most weeks you will see my wonderful

mother selling bags at the Forsyth farmers’ market. Cup to Cup would not exist if not for her continued unwavering support. When you have a chance, go to the market and thank her. My wife comes along with me to the Port Royal farmers market each week in South Carolina. She has been so fantastic in supporting me and what I do since the day we met, helping my business grow, dreaming of the future, and being patient with me when I get overwhelmed with all the things that come with a business.

Farmers Market every Saturday. I do sell online. You can find my coffee all over Savannah and several places outside the area. A few places to check out include The Foundery Coffee Pub, Coffee.Deli, Back in the Day Bakery, Moon River Brewery, The District Cafe, and Whole Foods.

What do you think is the best thing about what you do? My personality is built for slow,

long-term relationships and coffee is a perfect fit for that. From developing relationship with farmers, to wholesale customers, to retail sales I love being able to share what I love with people in the way I love to share things. It’s just great!

ho knew that the simple statement, “If you would like help with your Nutrition Month Celebrations, let me know.”, made by Brittany Lightsey, the Memorial Children’s Wellness Program Registered Dietitian, to the Chatham School Nutrition Program Managers, would turn into a celebration of celebrations. On April 3rd, the Chatham School Nutrition Department held its first ever Chefs Move to Schools activity. This activity was called “Chef and Child Day” and it was a celebration of healthy eating at Garden City Elementary School. The Chefs Move to Schools is a partnership program developed in May 2010 in conjunction with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Its primary goal is to assist in the fight against childhood obesity in the United States.

Chef and Child Day AT GARDEN CITY ELEMENTARY by Rhonda Barlow, MPH, RD, LD, CLC The organizer for Savannah’s “Chef and Child Day” event was Jeffrey Quasha, the executive chef at Memorial Health who recruited various chefs from the Savannah Metro area and organized food donations for the event. The chef from the East Georgia Regional Medical Center in Statesboro, the instructor chefs and culinary students from the Savannah Tech Culinary Program, Chef Dyson-Bosier who is the Woodville Tompkins High School instructor chef, and his culinary students, along with a few other local chefs, all took part and were instrumental in making the day’s event a success. The food used for the event was donated by various vendors in the area. Other event partners included the American Culinary Federation Chefs of the Low Country, Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center, and Morrison Healthcare. Menu highlights included honey chicken, creamy mac-ncheese, orange wedges, garlicky pole green beans, garden salad with homemade ranch dressing, and a rare dessert treat -- chocolate kissed cupcakes. Those of us who knew the “healthy secret” to the cupcakes and the really creamy macn-cheese could not help but smile a knowing smile as the students and teachers alike, unknowingly enjoyed the black bean puree in the cupcakes and the butternut squash in the mac-n-cheese. Prior to the event, nutrition education lessons, provided by Ms. Lightsey, were taught across the curriculum in preparation for the day’s event. If you are a local chef and would like to work with the Savannah Chatham County Public School System please contact the Chatham School Nutrition Program Farm to School Liaison at 912-395-1246.

11 tips to help dogs beat the

heat by Jusak Yang Bernhard and Jeffrey A. Manley of TailsSpin

P

retty much any pet owner you ask will say that their pets are part of their family. So of course we like sharing and being with our pets on outings and festivities of summer. No matter how prepared, it seems we always have to run a quick errand or two on the way to wherever we are going. The weather map says it’s summer as temperatures climb into the 80’s and 90’s. Days seem longer, as we get out and enjoy more sunshine daily. Here in the greater Savannah area, as we all know, with the summer season in full swing it’s almost guaranteed to be HOT and HUMID. More than ever, as pet owners and caretakers, we must take certain precautions while out enjoying the sun with our pets. Unfortunately, the heat and humidity of our southern summers amplify flea, tick and mosquito concerns (mosquitoes transmit heartworm disease). As such, a visit to the veterinarian for a spring or early summer check-up is a must. Make sure that your pets are up-to-date with their annual vaccinations, get tested for heartworm, are on a monthly heartworm preventative treatment, and are on a safe flea and tick control program.

Here are some other tips you might want to consider…

1. Keep the water flowing Make sure to have plenty of fresh water for your pets. Just like us humans, our pets also need lots of water to hydrate and keep cool. Whether indoors or outdoors, make sure the water bowls are changed daily and kept full.

2. avoid hot pavement Walk your dogs or cats early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the scorching sun and the hot pavement. Yes, you can teach your cats to walk on a leash. There are plenty of online tutoring sites you can check out.

3. Watch for heatstroke signs Do not leave your pets outside for long periods. Outdoor kennels should be well-ventilated and in the shade. Know that heatstroke can be fatal. Make sure to watch out for signs of heatstroke, such as panting, staring, anxious expression, high fever, rapid heartbeat, refusal to obey commands, warm and dry skin, vomiting, and collapsing.

4. Slather on the SPF Use sunscreen, as pets can get sunburn as well. Little dabs of sun block on unprotected areas, such as the tip of the nose and ears. -Continued on Next Page WELLF EDSAVA NNA H. C OM | FEED 19


5. give them a fresh new do Keep your pets well groomed. A lot of mats and tangles may trap too much heat. Consider bathing pets weekly during high heat spells. Also use conditioner to help untangle and soften your pet’s hair. Grooming brushes, such as the Furminator, help to comb out excessive undercoat.

know The signs of Heatstroke

6. no mysterious puddles Don’t allow your pets to drink from street puddles, as they may contain antifreeze and other toxic chemicals.

7. even dogs hate hangovers Keep alcoholic beverages away from pets, as alcohol can cause life-threatening toxicity, neurological depression, seizures and comas. Pets do not enjoy intoxication, and they do not realize that what you are drinking is hazardous to their health.

8. Doggie treats only Similarly, remember that the snacks enjoyed by your human friends should not be a treat for your pet; any change of diet, even for one meal, may give your dog or cat severe digestive ailments.

9. Skip the fireworks Please leave pets at home when you head out to July 4th celebrations, and never use fireworks around pets. Exposure to lit fireworks can potentially result in severe burns or trauma to curious pets, and even unused fireworks can be hazardous. Many types of fireworks contain potentially toxic substances such as potassium nitrate, copper, chlorates, arsenic and other heavy metals.

10. Keep calm and pet on Summer thunderstorms, holiday fireworks and longer car trips can cause pets anxiety. Check out products such as Rescue Remedy or Thundershirts that are designed to help calm pets in stressful situations.

11. never leave pets in a car Last, and certainly not least…Never leave your pets in the car. It is safer to leave your pets in the house. During the “dog days” of summer, the temperature inside a parked car can climb to well above 100ºF in just a matter of minutes, even with the windows open. Beating the heat is extra tough for dogs because they can only cool themselves by panting and sweating through their paw pads. Animals pant, to rid themselves of excess heat. Air moves through the nasal passages, which picks up excess heat from the body. As it is expelled through the mouth, the extra heat leaves along with it. Although this is a very efficient way to control body heat, it is severely limited in areas of high humidity or when the animal is in close quarters. 20

Here’s what to do if you think your dog is having a heatstroke. Know that your pet’s health and well-being is in your hands. If you suspect your pet is suffering a heatstroke, you must act quickly and calmly. Apply towels, soaked in cool water, to the hairless areas of the body. It is imperative to get the animal to a veterinarian immediately. Once your pet is in the veterinarian’s care, treatment may include further cooling techniques, intravenous fluid therapy to counter shock, or medication to prevent or reverse brain damage.

Have a safe and happy summer Savannah!

Comfort Food

West Duffy Café serves up some fine soul food off the beaten path and on the go. Story & Photography by Cheryl Baisden Solis

As a long-time foodie I love to scan the internet for interesting places to eat, little outta-the-way corners where the perfect fish sandwich actually exists, the cupcakes are to die for, or where my Grandma’s style o’ cookin’(though she passed from this world long ago) can still be found. Sometimes you just need that comfort of food done right, served simply, and from the first bite, just a lil’ bit of heaven on earth. I found a small reference to this place on the web and was intrigued enough check it out for myself. Something about the picture of that old Sunbeam bread sign hanging over the door told me that I might have myself a lil’ gem here, and indeed I did! No, there’s not much to see at first, and –darn it!—the sign has been changed, but it’s easy enough to locate on the corner of West Duffy and Jefferson streets. Open the old wooden screen door and walk into essentially a single medium-sized room with one table and a counter crowded with boxes and big tea containers, a red ladder and crates of bread loaves leaning up against it—you get right away that this is a take-out place. Read the blackboard for the daily specials, tell Miss Diesha what you want, and she’ll dish it up for you from the hot-table right there behind the register. Simple enough. While you wait take a look around at the old shelf on the left piled with gigantic cartons of spices, hot sauce, canned salmon, grits and other kitchen necessities, the array of photos and Lost Dog ads, and savor the wonderful smell of the food—because it does smell SO good!

“...everybody needs to know a trade to take care of themselves, so I’m gonna teach you how to cook and do it well.”

22

FEED | W E LL FEDS AVAN N AH .CO M

You see, that’s what it comes down to in the end. West Duffy Café is a place stripped down to the bare essentials. I guess you could eat your food at the lone table but basically, in spite of the name, it’s a space devoted to preparing a good home-style meal-in-abox. Yeah, it’s got all its bones showin’; the stack of Styrofoam containers, the tea buckets, bags of John Derst bread jumbled up in the display case and a shelf full of cooking supplies are all out there in plain sight. Some may call it ‘scruffy’ but that doesn’t seem to bother the slew of fans who have hit the place each morning and afternoon for nearly 6 years now.


The proprietor of this little neighborhood soul food haven is Louis Smith, Jr., who practically grew up in both of his daddy’s restaurants here in Savannah during the 70s and 80s (Little Lou’s & Donna’s Home Cooking on the west side). “I’d get up at the crack of dawn and go with my daddy to his restaurant, learning to make his recipes and do whatever he needed. He was always independent and told me, ‘You need to learn how to cook well and never just depend on a woman to do it; everybody needs to know a trade to take care of themselves, so I’m gonna teach you how to cook and do it well.’ ” Before school started he was mixing biscuits, washing dishes, cutting vegetables and learning how to make a wide variety of breakfast dishes. “When other kids were out on their HotWheels, I was in the kitchen—but it’s paid off! ” A friend of his father had a small place to sell 6 years ago, so Louis Sr. and Jr. decided to make it a neighborhood take-out. For the first few months, his Daddy helped him get started, reminding him of the importance of a good breakfast, offering more than the usual pork products—and Louis took it from there, adding on lunch and dinner, and bringing in crowds from all over the downtown area. As for me, I have to say that their neck bones in gravy are some of the very best around this town— even my hubby, who doesn’t usually partake of what he thinks of as ‘bizarre Southern meats’, enjoyed the rich flavor and delicious gravy. Anywhere that serves yellow summer squash and rutabaga (never overcooked or mushy), and some sweetly tender oxtail is gonna grab my attention. My guy loved the baked chicken, which just fell off the bone, leaving him to lick the gravy off his fingers, and wishing I’d picked up another muffin so he could finish soppin’ up what was left. It’s a one meat and three sides kinda place—rice is included as one of the sides, and there’s plenty of fresh vegetables, macn-cheese, sweet yams and such to choose from. If you want to add a pork chop on the side ($3) or a chicken leg, just ask. Look to the right of the register to find the daily selections of cakes sometimes including keylime with cream-cheese frosting, double-chocolate, butter pound cake, and of course, Red Velvet—all of them baked by Mr. Smith’s long-time friend, Donna Green, of Donna’s Delicious Delights.

For six years now, seven days a week, you will find West Duffy Café a rather noisy, lively and busy neighborhood spot, with regulars ordering their favorites, joshing with the ladies behind the counter, and always asking for more biscuits, cheese on those grits, or an extra Obama patty. Ah, yes, let me tell you about the Obama Breakfast, the spécialité de la maison: two crispy, golden, wildly scrumptious patties made with big shrimp, fresh-caught lump crabmeat and salmon and served with eggs, grits and biscuit—all this for only $6.25—you can’t beat that anywhere in town, I’m sure. Named for the new President on his inauguration day and ever after a big favorite at the café, it’s satisfying and memorably delicious. If your pockets are even lighter, then try the West Duffy Special: sausage patty, smoked sausage or bacon, with grits, eggs and toast for just $2.25. My own two favorites— so far!—are the tender, juicy fried pork chop and the smothered shrimp in a perfectly seasoned light gravy over grits—just sayin’. If the prices don’t grab your attention the scent of the food certainly will…but first, my fellow foodies, you have to take a chance and walk on through that door!

The Seasonal Chef Recipes by Savannah’s Top Chefs using Local & Seasonal Ingredients

I

have always had an unspoken love for foods fresh off the vine. As a child my family kept chickens, grew fresh asparagus and garlic plants, maintained grape vines, and I could often be found in a patch of delicious wild blackberries or in the kitchen with my dad or grandparents. After attending culinary school at Ogeechee Technical College in Statesboro, I worked at a variety of restaurants just trying to earn and learn as much as possible so that I could excel in the kitchen and eventually open my own restaurant. Working under Chef Jeffrey Hansell in Birmingham, AL, (who was recently named a finalist for Food & Wine magazine’s Best New Chef 2014) I was inspired by the emphasis he made in his cooking on fresh, local and seasonal cuisine. And now here I am! I am still young and open to learning more every day. I owe so much to my staff here at Blake’s who keep me grounded and are helping to give me the opportunity to flourish and grow into this new position as owner and chef.

Pan Roasted Duck with Spring Vegetables Brought to you by Chef Chris Blake, Executive Chef and Owner of Blake’s Fresh & Local Dining

I chose to feature some unconventional seasonal ingredients in this month’s recipe including rainbow chard, turnip root and kumquat. In my recipes I like to highlight ingredients that aren’t necessarily well known and show people that these ingredients can be just as beautiful and tasty as other things they are more familiar with. Cooking duck at home may also push you out of your comfort zone but I encourage you to give it a try. If you can’t find any kumquats at the local farmers’ markets or stores and really want to try them out, feel free to stop on by Blake’s and I will give you some personally. Enjoy!

1. First start by washing all your vegetables. Peel your turnip roots skin and cut into cubes.

1. When cooking the duck breast, start with a cold pan and place the duck skin side down. Cook on low until the skin is crispy and the fat is rendered, turn off the fire and flip duck in pan and let rest in the warm pan about 8 minutes. This will give you a medium rare if you would like a further cooked duck, leave the low fire on for a few more minutes to take it to the temperature that you would prefer.

2. Blanch turnip cubes and the baby carrots in boiling water until tender. 3. Remove turnips and carrots and shock in ice water to stop cooking. Reserve for further use. 4. Cut Chard from stems and randomly chop into about 1 inch strips 5. Score duck breast skin in a cross hatch pattern, salt and pepper the skin side, then salt and pepper the bottom with the addition of a sprinkle of cinnamon, about ½ tsp. per breast and reserve until ready to cook. 6. In a sauce pan bring the sugar, water, and vinegar to a simmer. Slice the kumquats and add to the liquid, simmer until a syrup has formed. All of the above can be prepared ahead of time and stored for further use, also any other vegetables that you prefer can be substituted. For the sauce, if you are unable to find kumquats or would like to try a different flavor, you can also substitute lemon, limes, oranges, etc.

2. In a hot pan add the olive oil, garlic, leek rings, baby carrots and turnips. Make sure the pan is hot enough to get a little color on the turnips and the carrots. Add chard and sauté until just wilted. Salt and pepper to taste. 3. Plate vegetables in the center of the plate. Slice the duck and arrange on veggies and then sauce the plate with the kumquat sauce.

NEWS

THE GOODS ON LIBERTY STREET... It started with Drayton Towers or maybe even before that, some would say it started with Mellow Mushroom - but however the tide turned, it is now coming in strong. We talking of course, about all the developments that have continued to happen on Liberty St. While the aforementioned have been around for a while now, it has only been recently that this thoroughfare between MLK and E. Broad has really seen some substantial developments. I can remember the disappointment of losing Harris Bakery, but then welcomed the addition of The Beer Growler and BT Byrd’s. Then Jamie Durrence of Local 11 Ten came in and showed he was no one trick pony with the opening of The Public Kitchen and Bar, shortly followed by the renovation of Soho South. This was followed by the new owners of Savannah Coffee Roasters, opening the building dubbed, “Coastal Empire Trading Co.”, on the far west side of Liberty across from the Civic Center. The space is home to a well appointed interior that reminds us of Barnes & Nobles meets downtown Savannah. The space is a huge improvement to offerings on that side of Liberty. Just next door is the new home to our favorite pasta company, Frali Gourmet. Owners Franco and Lisa Marra are some of the hardest working folks in the biz, making everything from scratch in the old 26 EAT | W EL L FEDS AVAN N AH .CO M

world tradition, including the fresh mozarella balls pictured above. Now as we make our way back down towards the east side of Liberty - just past the Hilton DeSoto, where the old gelatoh place used to be, we saw a sign: “Granite Kitchen and Bar Coming Soon”. (We will be sure to keep you posted as that develops...) But we’re not finished yet! Keep moving East, just past Brasserie 529 in the newly renovated building that shares its back parking lot. There we noticed yet another sign for a permit to sell alchohol and do tastings. After some investigation and rumors, we believe that this will be the location of a new Smith Brothers IGA, with an emphasis on gourmet foods, beer and wine. Anyone care to confirm this. Please, please, confirm this! Well there you have it folks. I would expect that by this fall, we are going to be looking at a whole new drag and what we hope will be a permanent facelift to one of our favorite streets.
