Fruits in the Landscape

In winter, the vegetables growing have already been seeded and thinned. Beyond harvesting meal-sized portions of greens and roots, the occasional weeding and watering, and maybe covering up lettuce to endure a frosty night, this is the season of gardening downtime. But around here the days can warm up into the 60s and 70s, tempting us to get out to work in the yard and garden. What is the restless winter gardener to do? Now is the best time to plant fruit and berry trees, bushes and canes. Winter is the dormant season that perennial plants use to expand their root structures, so planting these in winter gives them an opportunity to get established before putting energy into leaves, flowers and aerial growth. When ordering or buying fruit plants, keep a few things in mind. Fruits come in four basic types: stone fruits, pome fruits, nut trees, and berries. Stone fruits include peach, plum, cherry, apricot and nectarine. The pome fruits are apple, pear, and all the citrus varieties. Each comes with its own set of cultivation needs and limitations. Most fruit trees sold now are grafted onto dwarf or semi-dwarf root stock. To narrow your choices, consider first about what your landscape has to offer the fruit plant in the way of water and sunlight. (Soil is also important but can more easily be modified when planting time comes.) The more sun, the more fruit you can expect, full sun being best and 4-5 hours of full sun being the minimum required to get any fruit at all. Next consider the space requirement of the trees, bushes, canes or crowns you want to work into your existing landscape. Trees generally need as much elbow room as head room—that is, plant them as far away 10

from other plants or structures as you expect them to grow tall. Exceptions to this would be espaliered trees along a wall or fence or fruits planted on a south facing wall as long as the shade cast by the structure allows at least six hours of full sun. Knowing how the sun moves across your land from season to season is important; bear in mind the movement of the sun to the south in winter and to the north in summer. The shade of a south-facing wall in winter will be much shorter than it is in summer, when all the blooming and fruiting occurs. Tropical plants like bananas grow best on a protected south-facing wall as long as they get plenty of sun. Blueberry bushes need 6-8 feet between them and different varieties for optimum pollination. Cane fruits such as blackberry can be planted with as little as 2 feet apart from surrounding plants as long as they get their share of sun. Again, get different varieties for cross-pollination or make sure the variety you get are self-pollinating. This is true for any fruits you are considering—ask the nursery before purchasing. Soil provides the foundation for the plant and should be prepared with the long-term needs in mind. The acidity or alkalinity should be between 6 and 7 on the pH scale. Blueberries like a more acid soil, so the lower end works well for them, but most fruits like it closer to neutral (7). Fortunately, fruits like well-drained, sandy soils like ours best. But even sandy soils can have compacted subsoil that prevents good drainage. To test your site, dig the hole as if you were planting the tree there. Fill the hole with water and see how long it takes to drain. If it takes more than a day, you have drainage problems. Compost is the panacea to


any soil problem, it loosens compacted and clay soils while adding structure and water retention capabilities to sandy soils. Compost also adds vital nutrients, micro-organisms, minerals and trace elements. The old adage of “dig a $100 hole for a $10 tree” is true. It would be ideal to dig the hole as wide as you expect the branches to reach in their fifth year of growth. If you dig a hole merely as wide as needed to bury the current size of the rootstock, the roots will be reticent to spread beyond the amended hole and the growth of the overall tree won’t be as vigorous had you amended a larger area. Fruit are on average 80% water, so the water requirements to grow tasty fruits are high. I recommend planting them in a low spot that catches rainwater as long as the soil drains readily. You can even create “rain-gardens” for that very purpose. My friend Doreen has created a good example of this for growing fruits. She lives in Phoenix, AZ, where watering restrictions are a fact of life—and becoming so in the Southeast as well. To see how Doreen maximizes the sparse desert rain, visit her site down2earthgardens. blogspot.com and search “earthworks.” We can learn much from our arid dwelling friends in the way of water use and conservation. Speaking of which, please consider attending Tybee Island’s Water Fair coming up on January 29th. Rainwater catchment and grey water systems are ideal for fruits, and experts from near and far will be at the Fair to show you how to implement them. For more information, go to cityoftybee.org/CommunityEvents. In addition to water conservation, the Fair will also focus on sustainable living and permaculture design, a way of thinking about the problem as being its own solution. These concepts help you design systems that are efficient, economical, ecologically-sound and do-it-yourself friendly. A fundamental principle of permaculture is that food should be growing outside everyone’s back door. For more information on permaculture, visit my website, garden-muse.com. There’s nothing like going into the yard and picking fruit right off your own trees throughout the seasons.

This past holiday season, I gave marmalade made from kumquats growing in my yard as gifts. A neighbor gave me a laundry basket full of grapefruit that I gave as gifts as well. Come May and June, I hope the peaches will be as plump as juicy as they were last year, and I’m looking forward to a second year of Asian pears this summer. Late summer will find me busy preserving the fig harvest from my Brown Turkey fig tree. In the fall, my Anna-Dorset apple tree will bestow small but crisp and tasty apples for me to enjoy—if the squirrels don’t get them first!

May 2011 bring you the opportunity to plant a variety of fruits for your own yearround harvest for you, your children, and the generations to come.

Good Nutrition Doesn't Have to Be

Expen$ive You’d think hard times would make us all lose weight. Less money to spend on food, less food to eat, right? Cutting back on food spending, though, may have the opposite result. That’s because what’s cheap is often what’s highest in calories.

I wrote about strategies for trimming your tab at the grocery store in a previous column. Find it at www. onthetable.net/shop-strategically.html. It’s important to have the right staples on hand if you want to save money and eat right. But knowing how to put those ingredients together in good-tasting, appealing ways – or making the best choices when you’re away from home – is important, too. Keep some simple rules in mind: Choose foods as close to their natural state as possible, look for short ingredient lists, and aim for foods with as little added sugar and salt as possible. Here are some ideas to get you started:

It’s often the least nutritious, too, which means that cutting food costs may also lower the overall quality of your diet. For example, huge bottles of soft drinks and fruity sugar water cost less than real fruit juice. And the soft economy loaves of bread made with refined, white flour cost less than coarse, fiber-rich whole grain varieties. You’ll pay more for a head of vitamin-packed broccoli than you will for a big bag of chips, and a cheap, fast food burger can pack hundreds more calories than a simple sandwich made at home from fresh ingredients. But with more of us trying to cut costs, these nutritional shortcuts may be tempting to take. How can eat you cheap and still maintain a highquality diet?

Grab and go. Fast snacks and mini-meals to take from home include raisins, small bags of Cheerios, storebrand, nonfat yogurt, an apple, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread, a homemade muffin or bag of popcorn. If you’re away from home and need something fast, buy a piece of fresh fruit or a small bag of nuts or seeds. Breakfast buys. Nothing is less expensive or better for you in the morning than a big bowl of cooked oatmeal. Cold cereals—raisin bran, bran flakes, Cheerios, and shredded wheat—are also good bets. Round out the meal with some applesauce, canned peaches, or whole-wheat toast with jam.


Take whatever you can with you on the road if you must, rather than risk succumbing to the allure of a drive-through window. Lunch breaks. Bring a bag lunch from home filled with last night’s leftovers and a piece of fruit. Make use of odds and ends that aren’t enough for a family meal and would otherwise get tossed. Other cheap-but-wholesome choices: A cup of chili, a bean burrito, soup and crackers, peanut butter on an apple, hummus and pita wedges, and nonfat yogurt. Supper solutions. Whole-wheat spaghetti with your

favorite tomato-based sauce is fast and cheap. Seasoned beans over rice, soup and salad, and baked potatoes topped with chopped vegetables and a sprinkling of low-fat cheese are other good choices. Save money by wasting less. Stir leftover cooked vegetables into soup or spaghetti sauce. Combine leftover tomato soup with vegetable soup or use up small amounts of either by adding it to other sauces or casseroles. Buy supplies wisely, make conscious choices, and waste less. It is possible to cut food costs without sacrificing good nutrition.

food as

medicine

Learn to heal your body with what you eat by Marsha Godzinski Hargreaves

H

ave you ever considered the possibility that food can be medicine? In today’s world, when we become sick, we usually visit our physician and walk out with a prescription or two. What if, instead of a pill, we were given a prescription to eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains? Can you imagine a time when we’ll leave the doctor’s office and rush to the nearest grocery store instead of the closest pharmacy? This doesn’t mean we turn our backs on the usefulness of modern medicine. Obviously, a forkful of fresh broccoli would not be at all helpful in repairing a ruptured appendix. But is it possible to reclaim one of the most important keys to achieving and maintaining good health: Our daily food choices. Research has proven that many of our chronic diseases and causes of death in Americans—heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and obesity—can be greatly improved and prevented by embracing a diet of whole foods, based on plants and whole grains. Look at what current research reveals about what comprise today’s standard American diet: 70% of Americans are either obese or overweight, presumably from eating a diet comprised of 51% of refined, processed foods and 42% of animal-based products and by-products. According to the statistics, the average American diet contains only 7% of plant based foods—which includes french fries! This translates into just three servings of fruits and vegetables a day, falling far short of the recommended 5 to 13 daily servings, depending on the individual. An adult who needs 2000 calories a day to maintain health and weight should consume 9 servings (about 4 ½ cups) a day of fruits and vegetables. Think about it: If we ate the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables, coupled with generous servings of whole grains and beans/legumes, there wouldn’t be much room left for the unhealthy foods that are causing us so much trouble with our health! An easy way to measure this is to follow the American Dietetic Association recommendation that at least half of our plates be filled with fruits and vegetables. You may already know that the statistics say 50% of us are going to die from cardiovascular disease or stroke.Type 2 diabetes and cancer rates are on the rise, and the average life expectancy has dropped so dramatically that our children are not expected to live as long as we do. Science has already proved that our health and longevity issues are related to our dependence on processed, refined and fast foods coupled with our nation’s voracious appetite for meat and dairy. Many physicians and dietitians believe that it is possible for us to reclaim our good health by adopting a nutrient-rich, plant-based diet. Research has


revealed that heart disease can be prevented and even reversed by embracing a total vegetarian diet. Multiple case studies have shown that eating a diet full of vegetables can help prevent the development or progression of certain cancers, aid in the control and prevention of diabetes, decrease the incidence of kidney and gallstones, calm irritable bowel syndrome, eliminate constipation and improve overall gastrointestinal health and even decrease the risk of osteoporosis. Your mother was right when she admonished you to eat your green beans! Healthy plant-based eating isn’t just for vegetarians (no meat) and vegans (no eggs or dairy as well.) Whole plant based foods, a.k.a. food that has been minimally processed, not genetically modified or mixed with chemicals, have now become the new gold standard of excellence in healthy eating. Backyard urban gardening and a demand for local produce are also on the rise.The foodie movement has met up with the green movement, spawning a mindset that is healthy for the body and the planet that also pleases the palate. You can incorporate colorful fruits, vegetables, dark leafy greens, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds into a your diet without giving up meat altogether. You can start slowly by perhaps first increasing your fruit consumption. Try having some blueberries, strawberries or a banana with your breakfast. For lunch and dinner, add a serving of lightly steamed kale or carrots. Before long, you’ll crave the fresh taste of produce, and you can enjoy the rainbow of colors available at the grocery store or farmers’ market. As a registered nurse for the past 20 years, I seek science-based advice and guidelines from trusted and respected sources. If you suffer already from diabetes or heart disease or any other chronic diseases, it is very important that you work closely with your physician. Your current medication regimen must be carefully monitored in order to make needed changes, which will occur surprisingly quickly as your body rapidly changes and responds to being provided with nutrient rich, plant based whole foods. I’ve experienced firsthand the benefits of adopting a complete vegan diet, which means no animal products at all.Though it’s been only a year, the overall impact on my

own health has been truly amazing.The hard facts are that since January of 2010, I’ve lost 30 pounds, my cholesterol has dropped 100 points, my LDL (that’s the bad cholesterol) is down more than 60 points. I now weigh what I weighed in high school 40 years ago.To top it off, my physician, who also said that she has never had a patient lower her cholesterol 100 points without medication, was able to take me off a blood pressure pill that I had been on for more than 12 years. I can honestly report that my energy level is higher, I need less sleep, and I simply feel better—actually, I feel fantastic! If you are interested in learning more about healing yourself and preventing disease through your diet, please visit the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (www.pcrm.org) and request a free Vegetarian Starter Kit. Also, check out their fantastic free online 21 Day Vegan Kick Start Program. Experience for yourself the amazing health benefits of a nutrient rich whole foods plant based diet. Try it out for a few weeks—what do you have to lose? How about a couple of dress or pant sizes? And you will surely gain peace of mind knowing you’ve reclaimed control over your health.

FeedingFido Healthy pet food options for every lifestage By: Lisa A.Yackel, CVPM, PHR

Providing precisely balanced nutrition is an investment in your pet’s good health. With that said, the American Animal Hospital Association found through its compliance study that only 7% of pets that could benefit from a therapeutic food were actually on such a regimen. “Therapeutic food” can be interpreted as a life stage appropriate diet or a medically appropriate diet. Walking down the pet food aisle at the grocery store can be overwhelming these days. Not only are there dozens of brands of foods, but there are also numerous choices once you pick your brand. Is your pet a puppy or kitten, a senior pet or an active pet, a large breed dog or a toy breed dog? Does it all really matter? The pet food world is really no different than the world we live in as humans trying to navigate through all the information and advertising that is thrown at us. Each of us has an idea of our body type (large breed or small breed), our activity level (hunting dog or couch potato), and our age/metabolism (child, teenager, adult, senior). Our body type is typically the only constant throughout our lives. This is true of our pets as well. A Labrador will never be a Whippet, but he will have more nutritional needs when he is a puppy or when he is daily running with his owner.

As veterinarians and pet professionals we don’t always agree on what brand or type of dog/cat food to feed your pet. Universally, however, veterinarians do agree that the food choice should change as your pet changes. Caloric intake needs to be such that lean muscle is being maintained and that body fat is adequate to convert fat into energy. Veterinarians recommend

“The pet food world is really no different than the world we live in as humans…” having physical exams twice a year (again, making the comparison to humans, this is approximately every 3-4 years ). During the physical exam, the doctor will look at your pet and access the BCS-Body Condition Score. This scoring places your pet on a scale of 1-5 with 1 being emaciated and 5 being obese. Tracking your pet’s weight in this manner helps to identify if the appropriate weight is being maintained. Changes can be made in the diet based on whether your pet is underweight or overweight.

“Therapeutic food� can also be another term for prescription diet. Again, veterinarians universally agree that a pet presented with a medical condition can benefit greatly from being fed a diet that is specifically designed to help alleviate the symptoms of the presenting disease. If you or a loved one is diagnosed with high blood pressure, your physician will prescribe a diet low in salt. If you are struggling with obesity, you are placed on a low calorie, high fiber diet. Controlling the diet often enables the patient to minimize medications and maximize quality of life. It is the same with our pets. Whether you have a new puppy/kitten or the dog/ cat you’ve loved for years, caring for your pet properly ensures many happy years together. As you care for your four legged friend, even the little things - perfectly selected food, exercise and love - can make a big difference.

Saigon Bistro

Vietnamese Food For The

SOUL

Good news, pho lovers!

A new Vietnamese restaurant has opened its doors: Saigon Bistro, located on 5700 Waters Ave near Derenne, has taken over the space formerly occupied by the Arizona Egg Pan. Presided over by owner and chef Annie Ngo, Saigon Bistro is sure to become a favorite of seasoned Asian food lovers and introduce novices to the virtues of Vietnamese cuisine. If all you know about Vietnam is from the movie Platoon, here’s a bit of background: This tiny, beautiful country (only 1,000 miles long) shares borders with China, Laos, and Cambodia. Its mountainous center, near the former Imperial capitol of Hue, boasts an agricultural area with a stunning abundance of fresh produce. Here the royal chefs of the first millennium developed the precursors to the elaborate dishes of modern Vietnamese cuisine, emphasizing a diverse range of local herbs like lemongrass and mint. As with most Southeast Asian countries, there is also an ancient Indian cultural influence brought into Vietnam via the Silk Road, reflected in some of the spicier dishes. The knowledge of how to judiciously 32

Above:Vietnamese Market Center: Pho soup

use spices and fresh produce to create unique, healthy recipes provided the base for Vietnamese cooking, but the final ingredient came when the French began sending missionaries to the country in the 1600s and eventually launched a full colonization in the 19th century, creating a deep impact on Vietnamese cuisine. The French brought new techniques, an appreciation for delicacy of flavor, new styles and concoctions. It’s unique culinary history that makes Vietnamese food stand out among other Asian cuisines. While the surrounding Asian countries generally use lots of flavorful herbs and spices, the Vietnamese tend to use fewer ingredients, yet achieve equal, if not bigger, flavors. This is achieved by using herbs not only as a seasoning but as larger part of the meal itself.Traditional meals are served with whole herbs, such as mint, coriander (cilantro), red and green perilla, and basil.The herbs can be served raw to be eaten with the meal or broken and cut into the dish. That way, you can take in the flavor with each bite and tailor it to your own personal taste. Vietnam’s national dish is pho (pronounced like “fun” without the “n”) is the specialty of the house at Saigon Bistro. It has endless permutations, but a basic pho is rice noodles served in a slow-cooked beef broth, brimming with fresh vegetables


large springs of cilantro and other herbs. Spice it up to your liking with the further accents of a salty and sweet sauce, chili sauce, and/or lime wedge. While appealing to every palate, this dish is provides nothing but whole, nutritious ingredients—it’s no wonder it’s eaten at almost every meal in Vietnam. The Vietnamese diet is among the healthiest in the world. The fresh produce and herbs are high in vitamins such as A, C and E and are rich in antioxidants and minerals. Cilantro has been proven to contain antibacterial compounds and have cholesterol-lowering properties and magnesium. Here’s what you won’t find a lot of in Vietnamese food: Fat. Vietnamese cooking favors small woks with just a bit of oil (as opposed to larger Chinese style woks that use lots of hot oil) and tends to be lower in fat and calories because meat is used more as a flavoring rather than a main ingredient. Most dishes tend to be generous portions of vegetables and noodles, with any meat offered as small portions marinated or grilled, then thinly sliced. The absence of oil combined with the fresh whole ingredients is as healthy a meal as it comes. Saigon Bistro owner Annie Ngo knows American appetites are used to more meat in their meals, and she intentionally adds more to her dishes to make sure everyone’s satisfied. Of course, there are plenty of options for our vegetarian readers, including the rice paper-wrapped Saigon Spring Rolls. Who knew comfort food be so healthy? Chef Annie calls it “Vietnamese soul food” — and Well FED couldn’t agree more.

Ingredients Rice Paper Wrappers Rice Noodles (Thin) Green Lettuce Bean Sprouts Fresh Herbs: Mint Leaves, Basil Leaves, Green Onion Stalks, Cilantro Sprigs Thinly Sliced, Cooked Meat or Shrimp Hoisin or Peanut Dipping Sauce Once you have mastered the art of rolling spring rolls, try experimenting with your own favorite ingredients and dipping sauces or come by Saigon Bistro to get advice from an expert!

Directions 1

Cook rice noodles according to the directions provided on the packaging. Let stand until noodles cool to room temperature. 2 Wet the entire area of the rice paper in warm water. (Rice paper will begin to soften and become sticky very quickly) Lay flat on a clean surface or cutting board immediately after it has become wet. 3 Place the cooled rice noodles (about 1-2 ounces per spring roll) onto the rice paper, in the form of a tightly packed log shape, about one third of the way in from the edge of the wrapper. 4 Place the bean sprouts, fresh herbs, and meat (optional) on top of the rice noodles. 5 Take the whole green lettuce leaf and place it on top of all the ingredients. Select a leaf that is just big enough to cover all the ingredients and is not so big that you cannot roll the wrapper over it. Use the lettuce to help compact and secure all the ingredients during the rolling of the wrapper. 6 Take one end of the rice paper wrapper and fold it over the lettuce leaf and all the ingredients. (Careful, the wrapper is super sticky! Try not to break it too) 7 Fold the wrapper over the ingredients once, then fold in the sides, then fold over again until it is completely enveloped all the ingredients securely. 8 Don’t worry, if you mess up, rip off the wrapper and try again with a new one. Practice makes perfect! 9 Enjoy with a Hoisin Sauce or Peanut Sauce Dip.

What exactly is a bar? Is it any place that has a physical bar which you can sit at? Does it have to be a full bar or does just beer count too? What about a wine bar? Sake bar? Bar and grill?

Well FED headed out to Sugar Daddy’s Food and Wine Bar in downtown Savannah to sit down with it’s front-man and all around afficianado, Chad Lyons. Here’s what he had to say.....

Southern

Sophistication


WF: Please tell us a bit about yourself..

WF: Favorite place to drink/eat out:

Nashville is my hometown, but I fell in love with Savannah after moving here a year & a half ago. My degree is in Middle East studies, which entailed living with a family in Jordan for 6 weeks. I speak conversational Arabic & Spanish, and know how to say “please” or “thank you” in ten other languages- unfortunately this isn’t very useful in Savannah. My minor is in Psychology, I didn’t focus on clinical or abnormal but instead on social, cultural and persuasion psych, which is very useful in this business and in any city.

Eat - Noble Fare, Drink - Garibaldi’s (Charlie is too damn funny.)

WF: What are some of the best things about your job? Only doctors & bartenders can prescribe anesthesia, so please limit yourself to the recommended dosage.

WF: What are some of the worst? Some people are missing the gene that says “I’ve had enough” sometimes I have to think clearly for those that are clearly not thinking.

WF: What’s your favorite drink? Depends on the time of year: Ciroc Vodka & Hendrick’s Gin on the rocks, or a crisp white wine in the summer; 4 Roses Bourbon & Single Malt Scotch neat, or a full bodied red wine.  A delicate Pinot Noir is perfect with a cool spring or fall breeze at night.

WF: What’s the best way to get served quickly at the bar? It’s best to already know the bartender or make a good first impression. Scenario: You want to impress a group or someone you’ve taken out.  Step 1: wait patiently for the bartender to get to you with money in hand.  Step 2: When you order your drinks give the bartender a $20 bill, tell them the $20 is for them, introduce yourself, and finish with, “I’ll be back to see you.”   Step 3: Be the one that goes to get the second or third round of drinks and your friends will be impressed how fast you are served.  This is a fool proof way of being remembered by the bartender and your guests.

WF: This is your chance to tell the entire city –one thing- , so what do you want to say to them: Try a vodka besides Absolut or Grey Goose, a bourbon besides Jim Beam or Makers Mark, and just because we don’t have Bud Light or Michelob Ultra doesn’t mean you have the right to pout. Don’t get me wrong, I like Budweiser but I’m not so brand driven that I’m not willing to try something new.

About the Drink: I feel as though this creation is very much like myself. The Winter Sidecar by appearance is not flashy or pretentious. Well-balanced and sophisticated, the true complexity lies within the drink itself. It is a libation to be appreciated for all its nuances and subtleties.

0.75 oz of Benedictine

winter Sidecar

1.25 oz of Maison Serrene Cognac 1.25 oz of 4 Roses Bourbon “Small Batch” Few dashes of Lemon Bitters & WhiskeyBarrel-Aged Bitters Mix all components in a shaker with no ice, swirl, add ice stir 8 times, then strain into a rocks glass. Take a lemon wheel & peel the rind away over the drink. Allow for the a few drops of lemon juice to fall into the drink. Twirl the rind and place in drink


Old World Traditions meet

As

Southern Tastes

an avid wine enthusiast, I tend to be biased for the vintages of the Old World—those wines produced in Europe. The French, Italian, Spanish and Germans have had centuries to perfect their farming and to pass them on through their next generation. That’s not to say I’m not fond of New World wines (anything that isn’t from Europe)—I recommend them plenty—but in my everyday experience, the offerings of the Old World continue to provide high levels of quality and complexity for the wine aficionado. The quest to marry some of these great Old World wines with the regional cuisine of Savannah and the Lowcountry has been full of adventure. Southern cuisine may seem simple at first blush, especially if you’re only looking at the clichés of fried catfish and overcooked vegetables. The truth is that the Southern traditions of preparing local seafood, meats and produce fresh and with minimal fuss is the perfect partner for the crisp whites and rich reds that come from across the Atlantic.

by Jason Restivo

To prove this point to the palate in the late summer to early fall, one need only to join in on one of the most celebrated local occasions, the oyster roast. During my first roast, I left the shucking to my hosts and pondered what beverage would be best. It was easy to understand the enjoyment of an ice cold beer while slurping down these fruits of the sea, but my mind kept wondering what wine would be the absolutely the best pairing.The aromatic smoke of the wet burlap sack combined with the briny smell of local oysters served up with a rich, homemade cocktail sauce with spicy horseradish had me thinking white, white, what white? My thoughts reached to France, towards the furthest point of the Loire River and the town of Sancerre, almost 300 miles in from the coast. This particular area of the Loire Valley finds itself sitting on some the earth’s most celebrated “white soil,” a swirling combination of marl and limestone that serves as the soil that grows some of the best Sauvignon Blanc on the planet. This historic growing region is known for producing great whites that pair perfectly


leather that makes any Bourgogne (also called Burgundy) a perfect match for our regional take on Julia Childs’ winter-warming stew.

with shellfish and fish from fresh or salt water. Their racy acidity is a great balance to the sweetness of the stemmed oysters, and the hints of stone fruit, peach for example, is perfect with spiciness of the combination of the cocktail and horseradish sides. Look for vintages from Bué and Bannay, though any of the Sauvignon Blancs from this Old World region pair wonderfully with oysters culled from our local waters. As the weather gets colder, local cuisine turns towards the hearty—and meaty. This past holiday season, I was fortunate enough to be a guest at table featuring venison hunted from the surrounding forests. Perfectly shredded as part of a robust stew that included locally-grown potatoes, onions and mushrooms forged from nearby, the venison served as the base. As the pot was brought to the table, the intense red skin of new potatoes glistened in the perfectly dimmed light and the smells of yellow Vidalia onions and roasted mushrooms wafted through the air.This dish demanded a red that wouldn’t overwhelm it, but which one? The rich concentration of flavors reminded me of what is arguably the most famous stew in the world, Julia Childs’ Boeuf Bourguignon. A recipe originating from the hillsides of Burgundy, France, its rustic preparation and use of local ingredients is nearly always complemented with a rich but elegant red wine. For generations, the families of Cote d’Or have dedicated their efforts to producing world class Pinot Noir, today I enjoy affordable everyday Bourgogne to pair for this dinner. A Bourgogne can a red wine comprised of Pinot Noir grapes usually collected throughout the entire Burgundy region. There’s a silkiness of cherry fruit with earthy tones of tea and

And what of our local sweets? I used the excuse of having a guest in from out of town to acquire a large batch of the Savannah Riverfront’s famous pralines. This local classic is made from melted butter, sugar and cream simply poured over pecans and left to cool. My friend and I bought a

box of freshly-made pralines and headed home to enjoy them with a choice dessert wine. I opened a bottle of Vin Santo, a light dessert wine from Italy—it literally means “holy wine.” Boasting in a golden honey hue, Vin Santos are not as viscus as dessert wines from Germany or France and are aged in chestnut instead of oak. Its lightly toasted nut characteristic is a great complement to this local treat. I think this feeling on the palate is as soothing, as time on the porch on the springtime evening. Though I do enjoy wines from all over the world and our American offerings, it’s always a culinary adventure to match up Southern cuisine with European wines. Savannah is a city with a European flair, and what better way to celebrate that with a bottle of the Old World at the table? Well FED

Craft Beers 101: Belgians an d Beyon d written by S. Cushing

“Beer is proof that God wants us to be happy” -Benjamin Franklin …And this God must have been explicitly concerned with our happiness since the dawn of mankind, for beer-making is as old as bread-making, and beer (the definition of beer being,“an alcoholic beverage made from barley mash flavored with hops and fermented with yeast”) was actually one of the world’s first beverages (the definition of ‘beverage’ being “a drink other than water”). The ancient Sumerians (5000 BC) were fermenting grains into alcohol around the same time that they were learning how to plant and harvest the very grains needed to make it. To put things in better perspective, at this time, writing itself was being developed…I find it amusing that as soon as we were able to communicate by chiseling symbols onto stone tablets, we were passing around the recipe for a brewski! It seems fitting that it would be archaic holy men who would be largely responsible for carrying the art of producing the potent elixir on down through the ages: In medieval France, Trappist monasteries, who had been manufacturing and consuming beer for ‘ritual purposes’, started brewing their ales commercially to support life in the Order. The particular monastic style of grog would go on to influence brewing on a larger regional scale, as best evidenced in the Belgian imports and other farmhouse-quality ales that are available to us today. These typically sweeter, more robust styles truly embody perhaps what beer originally was and maybe what it is meant to be: a rich, spicy medicine, hearty enough for a winter day and strong enough to put hair on one’s chest.They tend toward the same multi-layered complexity of a fine wine, and are often bottled as such. The alcohol content is noteworthy, usually upwards of 8 – or 9 percent, and the flavor must yeastier often due to a second round of fermentation. I personally think the monks are adding some kind of secret mojo into the mix as well, for the unhinging potency of the result is something to be reckoned with.


Along with the official beers from the [mostly] Belgium monasteries (like my personal all-around favorite, Chimay - the blue one -), there are also the Abbey ales (whose labels unofficially represent or vaguely reference a religious figure or abbey), fruity Lambics, Saisons, Dubbels, Tripels, and Flemish Reds to name a few. In all, Belgium produces thousands of different bottles that put the typical domestic American lager like [insert brand-name of any commercial “light” fermented corn-water here] to shame. Of course I love hanging out under the antique beer can display and sampling the season’s newest hand-crafted flavor from Moon River (and yes, of course I prefer to buy locally and yes, of course I’m a club member!) but when these chilly days call for something a little more substantial, I head to The Distillery for one of Savannah’s best collections of Belgian and Belgian-inspired domestic Crafts. I love the righteous proclamation that forewarns one of the lack of factory swill here (“No Crap, Only Craft”), the silent-era movies which play constantly, and

the idea that their thick-cut, fried bologna sandwich (from their open-as-late-as-business-dictates menu) promises a good pairing ~ er, once the novelty of a New Year’s resolution has worn off of course! And even though the impressive bottle list is usually only partially in stock, there are enough options available and constantly changing ones to entertain endlessly. I tried a bartender’s choice ‘mystery’ flight ($16) from the taps, complete with rating sheet – actually consisting totally of American ales that would rival any Holy import: Southern Tier’s 11% “Choklat” Imperial Stout from New York tastes not unlike a glass of actual chocolate milk on the front of the palate, before finishing with a bitter darkness. Victory Brewing’s (PA) Belgian-style Golden Monkey is another perennial favorite, an exotically spiced 9.5%, and like most of its kind, best taken slowly and respectfully. Another chocolate stout worth mentioning: Brooklyn’s Chocolate Imperial is so astonishingly bitter (that’s a good thing), it makes adding cream and sugar seem

neccessary…(hmm…note to self…new cocktail idea!) The list of actual Belgians here include some of the most well-known (Delerium Tremens, Duvel, Saison DuPont) and are worth a try for those who have never before tasted this alluring nectar of the gods… and now you know why I cringe every time someone complacently orders a (Bleep)-Light from across the bar, because there is so much more profound an experience out there awaiting. After all, you know what they say, - “Once you go Belgian you never go back”…!
