Take a Bite Out of Life

Every September, my Pap Pap swears he’s not planting a garden next spring. And every March, he picks up seeds for tomatoes, beets, and other veggies. Because even though gardening requires much dedication and patience, which can yield some frustration, he knows the pride and joy that come from seeing that first small, green tomato on the vine or beet tops popping out of the soil. It makes it all worthwhile. (That, and actually eating the vegetables!) I love spending my summers at his house — and at my Grandpap’s house in Maryland, as he also grows a substantial vegetable garden every year! — walking up and down the neatly manicured rows, with a grocery bag or an old Easter basket in hand, collecting as many veggies as I can. Dig in to the art of gardening yourself this year. We have the expert advice you need to get started on page 18. And if you need a little more motivation, turn to page 14. Chefs from Lidia’s Pittsburgh, Altius, and Ditka’s Wexford have created flavorful dishes starring strawberries, goat cheese, and balsamic that you have to try in your own kitchen. (I know my roommates and I will be whipping a few of these up!) Whether you use your homegrown produce to make a Crispy Goat Cheese Napoleon with Prosciutto, Strawberry Compote, and Balsamic Glaze or just a tomato and mayo sandwich, make sure you take the time to enjoy it. “Taste every bite with every corner of your mouth,” says Hilda Fu, the creator of Luminari and an advocate for bringing the joy back to eating. With co-directors Leslie Bonci and Lisa Silberg, Luminari launched Camp Delicious, a program that teaches local teens how to cook, enjoy, and appreciate food like never before. Check it out on page 24 and be sure to incorporate the lessons into your own life this season.

HOW DID THE TWO OF YOU GET THE IDEA TO DO THIS BOOK? Sean Enright: I’d been working on a recipe and technique book for a few years that was constantly evolving. Over the years, from Embury to Spoon to Bar Marco, I had compiled a recipe book that I’d share at each location I worked, either as a bartender or general manager. I wanted to eventually share the recipes from Pittsburgh’s top bartenders with other markets. Pittsburgh is often overlooked on a national level, though our talent is the best I’ve experienced across the country. Cody and I eventually met through social media chatter and realized we had two projects that could reach a larger market if we joined forces. My inspiration has always been to promote the talent in Pittsburgh. We have a unique creative perspective when it comes to cocktails. I think other bartenders across the country will enjoy these recipes and possibly be inspired creatively by them.

TOASTING to PITTSBURGH’S HISTORY The Pittsburgh nightlife has been one to watch for decades. From the speakeasies during Prohibition, to the signature cocktails of today, and all of the lively personalities who enjoyed everything in between, there are countless stories to tell. So local authors Cody McDevitt and Sean Enright wrote "Pittsburgh Drinks: A History of Cocktails, Nightlife, & Bartending Tradition” to illustrate for us that the signature of Pittsburgh is not just the history of the nightlife, but also the signature drinks of Pittsburgh bars and how it all came to be. We chatted with the authors to get a closer look inside the book.

1-11.indd 8

CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE SETUP OF THE BOOK? Cody McDevitt: The book is set up in two parts: One is a narrative, cultural history that tells Pittsburgh's story as it evolved through speakeasies, cafes, cocktail lounges, discotheques, and nightclubs into the gastropubs and brewpubs of today. It also tells how certain neighborhoods came into and fell out of favor throughout our history. Old photos are also included throughout the book from private collections, museums, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's archives. The second part of the book is a collection of recipes from and profiles of local bartenders, as well as one chef. EACH CHAPTER OF THE BOOK SEEMS TO GO INTO DETAIL ABOUT THE DIFFERENT HISTORIES OF BARS AND NIGHTLIFE IN PITTSBURGH. IS THERE A CHAPTER IN PARTICULAR THAT STANDS OUT TO YOU THE MOST? Enright: I‘m partial to the first section. When I started at Embury, we prided ourselves on being a “Pre-Prohibition” Cocktail Bar. We studied the history and cocktails of the late 1800s, and I guess

that had a lasting impression. I’ve always been a bit of a history buff and applied historical reference to my cocktail and wine education. Drink history before prohibition is often confusing and not very well documented, so anytime a writer does the research we can learn a new aspect to an era that was poorly documented. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRINK FEATURED IN THE BOOK? McDevitt: The Fussfungle. Enright: Mine, obviously. Just kidding! Faust Pact by Fred Sarkis is the definitive cocktail that ushered in the craft cocktail movement in Pittsburgh. It introduced Pittsburgh bartenders to technique and flavor profiles they’d had little exposure to beforehand. When I took over Fred’s mantle at Embury, it was easily the most ordered cocktail. Still a favorite of mine. A timeless classic. WHAT DO YOU HOPE READERS TAKE AWAY FROM THE BOOK? Enright: Not only will they learn about this part of Pittsburgh’s rich history, readers will also have access to over 70 recipes from Pittsburgh’s best bartenders to be easily recreated at home, and will be introduced to all of our top talent and the bars they work at. McDevitt: We've been proclaimed the next great destination in America for a number of years now. Ultimately, on every one of those lists, it's always an argument based on a favorable comparison to another major vacation spot or metropolitan area like New York. But Pittsburgh is not a great town because of how well it stacks up to other cities. It's a great city because of our heritage, our history, and all the people who came before. It's a great city because our fathers and mothers drank and worked here, as did their fathers and mothers. We should embrace that rather than celebrating every time someone from another area says we're as great as them. I hope this book makes people think that way.

The ELECTRIC SWITCH During a recent survey, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens found that 90 percent of its visitors felt that climate change is or will be a threat to our planet. “Addressing it is hard because everyone has a hundred things to do when they get home,” says Adam Haas, interpretive specialist at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. To help make it easier, Phipps has partnered with Green Mountain Energy to help guests switch to a green power provider that uses renewables like wind and solar. “Renters can make the switch, too, depending if they’re responsible for the electricity portion of their utility bill,” says Haas. And it only takes a few minutes to do so! As an extra incentive, guests who make the switch also receive a complimentary one-year family membership to Phipps or a six-month extension on current memberships. To date, over 400 households have already made the clean switch! If you’re interested in participating, too, stop by Phipps any time from 11:30 a.m. to close. Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, 1 Schenley Drive, Oakland. 412.622.6914. phippsconservatory.org. — Maggie McCauley

LOOKING FOR OTHER WAYS TO BE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE? “Eating less red meat is huge,” says Haas. This can mean honoring “meatless Monday” or choosing chicken instead, as it has a lower carbon footprint. Also, make an effort to avoid over-buying or letting food expire, as food waste is a major problem.

SAY CHEESE! For Brian Keyser, becoming a professional in the restaurant business was a pure accident. “I was in the movie business and left when I was 27,” he explains. “Like many, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, so I started waiting tables, and to my absolute surprise, fell in love with it.” Residing in New York City, Keyser worked as a server in many of New York’s finest restaurants, including Union Square Cafe, Blue Hill Stone Barns, and The Modern. These experiences led him to seriously consider opening up his own place. “I had gotten into cheese while working at Chanterelle, one of the few places with a cheese course at the time,” he says. “It just made sense to me that my restaurant would bring worldclass cheeses to patrons.” Three years later, Keyser opened Casellula in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, pairing cheeses with all sorts of delicious accompaniments and wines. When it came to opening a second Casellula location, Keyser says that Pittsburgh’s North Side chose him — literally. “I had no connection to Pittsburgh when Henry Reese from City of Asylum called and asked me if I’d be interested in opening a Casellula here,” Keyser continues. “Seeing that the Pittsburgh food scene is incredibly exciting and full of potential, I immediately said yes.” Since opening the Pittsburgh location of Casellula in late January, Keyser says the reception has been extremely welcoming. “The customers are great and have received us with open arms.” With an incredible — and locally sourced — menu, the restaurant also includes an array of fantastic dishes from chef Andrew Hill, including polenta with beef cheeks and octopus. Yum! Casellula, 40 W. North Ave., North Side. 412.226.9740. casellulapgh.com. — Matthew Hacke

EDIBLE INK:

ANTHONY FALCON BY RACHEL JONES PHOTOGRAPHS BY MICHAEL FORNATARO

A

t first glance, the tattoos that cover Anthony Falcon’s arms and chest are pretty recognizable — dragons, Mary Magdalene, tigers. But the significant meaning behind each piece is much deeper than that. “Most of my tattoos are memories,” he explains. “I have a really bad memory, a horrible memory. Sometimes, when I look at the tattoos, I remember different times in my life and I can remember who I was with, what I was doing, and some of the experiences I’ve had in the past.” Before opening Gaucho Parilla Argentina in the Strip District, Falcon worked in Asian cuisine, working with everyone from big Burrito Restaurant Group’s Bill Fuller to renowned chef Wolfgang Puck. His culinary curiosities led him to travel, which then led to the tattoos on his right arm and chest. “I have an affinity for Asian tattoos,” he says, rotating his wrist so I can get a better look at the entwined dragons on his right arm. “Dragons are a symbol of protection in Asian culture. In this sense, I guess they’re protecting me because they’re on my body. But I also become a protector for others, in some manner of speaking.” The Buddhist-style tattoo on his chest, which is called a “blessing,” depicts two tigers but represents the attributes of willpower and strength. While physical strength is the obvious connection, Falcon says it’s more about the inner strength we all harbor. “Internally, I think that’s where humans draw their real strength,” Falcon says. “So I’m looking for unbeatable spirituality wherever I can achieve it.” On that note, we move on to his left arm, where a colorful portrait of Mary Magdalene symbolizes another important aspect for him: forgiveness. “As the story goes, the woman was a diseased prostitute. She was basically a reflection or a metaphor of the worst that you can become,” Falcon says. “Jesus found it in his heart to forgive her. And so, if he can forgive her, surely I can forgive anyone else and any transgressions. This is a reminder to have an open heart and try to be forgiving.”

His inspiring ink fits with his positive personality and his natural ability to make smiles across the city — and not just from those enjoying the restaurant’s pollo con pan! Each piece of art acts as an introverted proclamation, speaking to where Falcon has been in the past and what messages he’d like to share in the future. Gaucho Parilla Argentina, eatgaucho.com.

NUMBER OF TATTOOS: I can’t really keep count.

FIRST TATTOO: Dead Kennedys symbol when I was 18

TATTOO REGRETS: The one on my neck. Really, it seems to offend some people. They see the tattoo and then they feel uncomfortable. I would never willingly want to make anyone uncomfortable. It’s very important to me that we are of one earth and one race: human.

NEXT TATTOO: A pirate ship. My most recent trip was to Saint John, and I had never been to the Caribbean before. Out there in the ocean, there was this pirate ship. It had the flags, and the skull and crossbones. And I thought, ‘That’s going to be it.’

INSPIRATION FOR TATTOOS: For me, these are memories and places I’ve been. It goes back to the concept of Sailor Jerry — you’re on a boat, you stop at a port, and then you get a tattoo wherever you are. Right now, for me, I think I developed this thing where everywhere I go, that’s what I want to get a tattoo of. I’ve had some in Florida, some in Vegas, many in Pittsburgh, and Thailand. I’m overdue for a couple.

CHEFS & TATTOOS: It’s all part of our culture — sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, tattoos, loud music. Why do we do it? I don’t know. It’s like a punishment. You’re under the needle for 12 hours and it’s like taking a good beating. Sometimes, you just need a good beating. (Laughs)

“It’s just a family thing to put our name somewhere,” he explains, noting that his brother has “Falcon” tattooed on his shoulder, too. “It symbolizes our family pride.”

Think of every meal as a song. Each ingredient used in the dish, similar to each instrument in a band, is unique and enjoyable on its own. But when it’s mixed in with others, the result is even more remarkable. The key here is balance. And when you combine sweet strawberries, tart balsamic, and salty goat cheese, that’s exactly what you achieve. Tune in to the following dishes by local chefs who took these three ingredients and hit all the right notes.

Gardening Tools DIG IN TO THE BENEFICIAL AND BEAUTIFUL ART OF RAISING A GARDEN AT HOME THIS YEAR BY RACHEL JONES • PHOTOGRAPHS BY MICHAEL FORNATARO

As we prepare for a season filled with stops at our neighborhood farmers market or local CSA pickup, we’re also getting the itch to create our own gardens at home. While the planting and maintenance can sometimes feel more like a labor than a love, the nutritious bounty and the pride that comes along with cultivating it yourself is unmatched.

But even with all of those preparations, he still fell victim to a Western PA gardener’s biggest enemy. “The first year, we did not put up any real protection, and the deer ate all of the tomatoes just as they were finally ripening,” he says. “Last year, I put up a very fine, six-foot mesh. That solved the deer problem.”

That’s why Mt. Lebanon resident Mike Hren planted his own garden for the last two years. “We love the fresh food, and I love the creative process of growing it,” Hren says. “I think it also sets a good example for our three boys.”

As he continues to learn the tricks of the trade along the way, Hren already has the most important rule of gardening down: having fun! There’s no better way to make a real connection with the earth, add a little extra goodness to the environment, and provide fresh, nutritious foods for our families. Plus, the dynamite pizzas he creates using a homemade sauce made from his homegrown tomatoes adds another notch in the pros column!

Caring for his tomatoes and peppers came with a constant commitment and a few learning curves along the way. During his first year, Hren did his homework and knew to give his tomatoes plenty of water every day and as much sunshine as possible. “I actually put our garden in front of our house because that’s the only place we get full sun,” Hren says. “The more sun, the better.”

GARDENING SEEMS TO RUN IN THE FAMILY DOWN AT SOERGEL ORCHARDS, TOO! HERE ARE RANDY SOERGEL'S TIPS FOR PLANNING AND EXECUTING A BOUNTIFUL VEGGIE GARDEN THIS SEASON: • When purchasing seeds for your spring crops, be sure to buy enough for your fall planting. Lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower can be difficult to find in July, so plan accordingly! • Try things you have never tried before! Raising potatoes in an old waste basket on your porch or deck can be fun. Try planting a cherry tomato plant in a hanging basket as well. • For tomatoes and peppers, Dave Will, Soergel Orchards garden center manager, says it is better to wait and plant a little bit later, such as the first week of June. The soil temperature should be warmed up enough for the plants to flourish. Tomatoes and peppers need a warm soil temperature, as well as a warm air temperature. Will has found that tomatoes and peppers planted later yield more produce than those that are planted in May. • The use of black film in the garden underneath your tomato plants will keep the weeds down. It also helps conserve water by trapping it under the plastic and making it available for the tomatoes themselves. • If you have never used a stirrup hoe for weeding your garden, then you need to try one. Its design makes cutting the roots of the weeds easy and effective while also cutting the time spent weeding in half! — Sierra Smith

SKINCARE 101 Study up on the importance of doing your research before committing to a skincare routine BY RACHEL JONES + MAGGIE MCCAULEY

e’re all very conscious of the food that we put into our bodies. Whether it’s organic, free-range, or grassfed, we’re always reading labels. What about your skincare routine? Knowing what ingredients are in your skincare and makeup products is very important, as the skin is the body’s largest organ and must be cared for accordingly. That’s why companies like Beautycounter, EVER Skincare, and Aveda are committed to not only making products with safe ingredients, but also demanding that products cannot be made with harsh or unhealthy ingredients.

W

Four years ago, Gregg Renfrew started Beautycounter as a way to make safe, yet high-performing, beauty products. “Beautycounter’s mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone,” says Carley Weissert, senior manager of Beautycounter. “We believe the minimal

regulation in the beauty industry is a public health issue and that we, as women especially, shouldn’t have to compromise our health for the sake of beauty.” As a consultant, Weissert educates clients on the industry and the lack of regulation for ingredients. Currently, only 30 harmful ingredients are banned or restricted in the U.S. by the FDA. But Beautycounter bans 1,500 ingredients from its skincare, hair and body, makeup, and kids and baby lines. And it’s continuously working to get stricter regulations on this. Consultants have even traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with senators and representatives to discuss these issues. Until these changes can be made, Weissert stresses the importance of doing your own research when shopping for skincare and beauty products.

For example, “chemical-free” isn’t a real term because even water is a chemical. “So companies that claim to be ‘chemical-free’ are simply using marketing terms to appeal to consumers’ growing concerns for using safer and healthier products,” she explains. The use of terms like “natural” and “healthy” are other ways to create buzz without actually guaranteeing anything, which is why taking the time to research the products you buy is vital. When creating the products for EVER Skincare, CEO Jessica Herrin made sure to put an emphasis on the use of clinically certified, botanical ingredients. “What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies,” says Dana Hanna, associate director of EVER Skincare. “EVER’s products are made with LSR10®, a botanically derived ingredient from the magnolia plant.”

EVER also follows EU guidelines for beauty products, banning over 1,300 ingredients from being used in its lines and rigorously testing the ones that make the cut. The company worked obsessively with skincare scientists who ruled out thousands of ingredients because “goodfor-you” was essential. The result is a supercharged system for all skin concerns, which is customizable and luxurious. While we strive to only use products that benefit our health, it’s also important to look for ones that improve the health of our planet as well. Aveda aims to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility — not just in the world of beauty, but around the world. Its founder, Horst Rechelbacher, was inspired by his mother’s herbal remedies, meditation and yoga, and a retreat to India, where he learned how to implement Ayurveda into his life and his work. “He adopted a holistic thinking, the belief that individual beauty is directly linked to the beauty of the world around us,” says Amy LeBard, assistant marketing manager of Aveda. “His ideas would revolutionize the beauty industry.” The company is committed to using organically grown herbs and ingredients, which are extracted in an environmentally friendly way, using CO2 to reduce toxic residue. Aveda is also

the first beauty company manufacturing with 100 percent wind power in its primary facility! “We believe there is no responsible alternative to doing business other than through the pursuit of environmental sustainability and this belief guides every decision we make.” So before you add another cream to your skincare regimen or test out a new face mask, be sure to study up. As Weissert says, education is one of our most powerful tools and the one that will yield the best results for us in the long run. “By empowering people with knowledge, they can make safer choices for themselves and their families.” Beautycounter, beautycounter.com.

When

Cannabis is the only option

BY SVEN HOSFORD / CONTRIBUTOR

SOME ENTREPRENEURS IN MEDICAL CANNABIS ARE IN IT FOR MORE THAN JUST THE MONEY

A

n entirely new kind of industry began two decades ago when California legalized cannabis for medicinal purposes. Many people assumed the medical cannabis industry was just a thin cover for recreational use, which it often was. This Wild West start drew a certain type of people to the industry. The advocates and entrepreneurs willing to build an industry selling an illegal plant as medicine are the business equivalent of extreme sports athletes — people that thrive on risk and adrenaline. As the medical research demonstrating the efficacy of cannabis began to mount and the list of ailments for which it provided patients real relief grew, that thin cover began to thicken. The endocannabinoid system was discovered shortly before the green rush began in California, and as researchers began to understand how it functioned, physicians were able to at least make a more educated guess about how to use cannabis as medicine. Word of the new science spread quickly among families dealing with conditions like epilepsy and traumatic brain injuries. As it did, another kind of advocate and entrepreneur appeared — people with a formidable will forged from a parent’s love of their child, a child who is suffering. Parents of children for whom cannabis is the only effective medicine have become a force of nature in the industry. NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF AN ENTREPRENEUR One such force of nature is Janel Ralph. She had no intention of being an entrepreneur, let alone in such a sketchy industry. That changed with the birth of a daughter she named Harmony. “About seven years ago, my third and youngest child was born with an extremely rare genetic condition called Lissencephaly,” says Ralph. “There are only 700 children worldwide who have this condition.

22

It’s also known as ‘smooth brain’ as the outside of her brain is completely smooth. It did not develop in utero due to a missing chromosome.” Ralph said that this type of genetic disorder is considered a traumatic brain injury, as her daughter is missing a large portion of her brain, which causes epilepsy. She explains, “Not just any epilepsy, but intractable epilepsy. You get the diagnosis of intractable if you fail three epilepsy drugs and none of them can stop the seizures from occurring. The chances of you having a pharmaceutical medicine that can give you any type of control over the seizures drops to under 5 percent, basically next to nothing.” Ralph described the horror of watching her daughter have hundreds of seizures a day, even while taking five strong antiepileptic drugs. She spoke calmly about hearing the news every parent dreads. “When she was almost four, the doctors said there was nothing more they could do. They were pretty much out of options at that point. They were talking to us about hospice. That’s when I started researching cannabis.” EDUCATION LEADS TO ADVOCACY Ralph quickly became active in the fight for CBD legislation in South Carolina, where she and her family live. The hemp bill that passed in 2013 removed all strains with less than 0.3 percent THC from the definition of marijuana, allowing her to purchase it legally in the state. The problem then became supply. As parents connected, an underground network formed to search for safe, legitimate sources of nonpsychoactive, full-spectrum hemp oil. They started testing what they could find. “We were way overcharged for products that weren’t even fit for human consumption,” Ralph says. “Products were grossly mislabeled.” She

describes a supposedly reputable company that sent samples to parents in states without testing facilities. When Ralph tested samples from other parents, they found straight THC and no CBD. “That’s when I decided to get into this industry. We had found a two-week supply one time that had provided almost immediate relief. I knew what she needed.” MAKING SAFE MEDICINE Today, Ralph is CEO and president of Palmetto Synergistic Research, which grows and processes a non-GMO, organic strain of cannabis under the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program run by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA). “We produce a full-spectrum cannabis oil from the hemp plant,” she says. “We have very specific genetics that we grow, federally compliant under the KDA’s program in Kentucky. Those genetics are all 18 percent or higher in CBD.” The oil is not a cure. Like many of the conditions for which cannabis is used as medicine, there is no cure for Harmony. What the oil provides for parents and children like Ralph’s is a much more manageable quality of life. A handful of seizures is more manageable than hundreds a day. Many people wonder what they would do if their child got sick. Ralph does not need to wonder. She became a titan in a brand new industry. More importantly, she found the surest way to provide clean, safe, high-quality, full-spectrum CBD hemp oil for her daughter and children across the country. Has it been worth it? “We’ve had a 95 percent reduction in seizures and have removed almost 90 percent of her pharmaceuticals,” Ralph says with a small smile.

What is

Cannabis? Q: What is Cannabis? A: Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants that includes multiple subspecies. One species is Cannabis sativa. Scientists have identified over 400 chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. More than 65 of these compounds are unique to the cannabis plant, and they are called cannabinoids (or phytocannabinoids). Examples of phytocannabinoids include delta -9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromene (CBC), and cannabigerol (CBG).

Q: What are phytocannabinoids? A: THC and the analogues of THC derived from the cannabis plant that interact with endocannabinoid receptors or otherwise affect the endocannabinoid system are called phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids have pharmacological activity due to their receptorbased effects on the endocannabinoid system. Additional pharmacological effects, such as anti-inflammatory mechanisms may be nonreceptor mediated.

Q: THC and CBD are the most commonly occurring cannabinoids in cannabis. What distinguishes them structurally? A: THC and CBD are structural isomers. They are both 21 carbon- containing phytocannabinoids and share an identical chemical formula, C21H30O2. However, the way that the atoms are arranged in the two molecules is different. There is an oxygencontaining closed ring in THC that is open in CBD. Dissolved in a solution, through a process known as ‘isomerization’ involving heat and acid, the two compounds can be interconverted chemically.

Some facts from TheAnswerPage* on Cannabis treatments for ALS, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and more.

Q: Do cannabinoids modulate ALS-related pain? A: Pain is a common symptom of motor neuron disease, and patients suffering from ALS generally report suffering from significant pain, which is sometimes a neglected aspect of this disease. In ALS, pain is considered to be largely a consequence of immobility and its related complications and, more rarely, neuropathic pain. Considerable progress has been made in understanding the role of cannabinoids in the modulation of pain. In the context of ALS, modulation of the cannabinoid system could have a great potential since pain present in ALS patients involves a large inflammatory component in the CNS.

Q: According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, more than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide. What is the clinical evidence for cannabis therapy in multiple sclerosis? A: There is evidence that cannabis-based medicine can significantly reduce spasticity, pain, and cause a subjective improvement in sleep quality compared to placebo in clinical trials. Cannabis-based medicine can also result in an objective improvement in mobility and bladder dysfunction. The undesirable side effects observed are often mild and well-tolerated.

Q: Do clinical studies suggest that cannabis-based medicine can alleviate cancer pain? A: In animal models, cannabinoids have been shown to be synergistic with opioids in reducing pain. A small pharmacokinetic interaction study of vaporized cannabis (900mg of 3.56 percent THC herbal cannabis with no CBD), administered once on days 1 and 5, and t.i.d on days 2 - 4 in 21 chronic pain patients on sustained-release morphine (10) or oxycodone

(11) showed no significant effect on opioid plasma concentrations when cannabis was added but did suggest increased analgesia. A RCT of nabiximols in 359 cancer patients with poorly controlled pain despite a stable opioid regimen found that the sublingual preparation at 4 sprays (10.8 mg THC and 10 mg THC), 10 sprays (27 mg THC and 25 mg CBD) or 16 sprays (43.2 mg THC and 40 mg CBD) daily for 5 weeks decreased pain and sleep disruption.

Q: Is the endocannabinoid system involved in human epilepsy? A: Yes. There are defects in the endocannabinoid system in persons with epilepsy. In one study, 12 patients with newly diagnosed temporal lobe epilepsy had lower levels (p < .01) of anandamide in CSF as compared to controls. In tissue removed from 30 patients undergoing epilepsy surgery, the levels of CB1 receptor messenger RNA were lower in some excitatory nerve endings as compared to the specimens obtained post mortem from persons without epilepsy. It was also noted that in the epilepsy patients, there was reduced expression of diacylglycerol lipase a, the enzyme that synthesizes 2-AG in postsynaptic neurons. (Recall that 2-AG is a fully efficacious agonist of both CB1 and CB2 receptors.)

Q: Do cannabinoids impact antiretroviral therapy-related nausea? A: Cannabinoids, such as dronabinol as well as non-pharmaceutical preparations, are commonly used by HIV and AIDS patients in an attempt to counter nausea caused by antiretroviral therapy. A single study among 88 individuals used a visual analogue scale to measure changes in nausea and found that nausea was reduced by 22 percent among those randomly assigned to dronabinol (2.5mg TID), compared to 7 percent in those assigned a placebo (p<0.05).

a C m y p p e p r a s H Leslie Bonci and Hilda Fu team up to create Camp Delicious, an inspiring institute that teaches youth how to cook — and enjoy! — food BY RACHEL JONES PHOTOGRAPHS FROM LUMINARI

I

n an effort to “broaden minds in the region,” Hilda Fu created the nonprofit Luminari in 2009. “The best way to broaden minds is to enlighten the stomach first,” Fu says with a laugh. So, she launched Camp Delicious in 2014, a program that helps local teens expand their cooking skills and their palates. “We can either be very limited and stick to only the foods we grew up with, or we can start to experiment with new ingredients and be open to new tastes,” Fu says. “Camp Delicious is a very good way, and a very fun way, to broaden minds.” Under the co-direction of Leslie Bonci, MPH,RDN,CSSD, and chef Lisa Silberg, Camp Delicious became a five-day program, taking place this year JULY 10-14. Throughout their time at Camp Delicious, participants will learn vital skills, including how to choose and prepare different ingredients while cutting back on food waste and sticking to a reasonable budget. To help teach these important life

lessons, Bonci and Silberg ask local chefs, dietetic interns/students, and food cultivators to share their unique insight through demonstrations and educational field trips. “I want participants to cultivate an interest in the kitchen, as well as a respect for where food comes from,” Bonci says. “I want them to appreciate the taste, texture, and function of food. I want them to celebrate what they learn with their family and friends.” Fu also hopes the participants learn how to celebrate the food itself. Born in Hong Kong and raised in a culture where days are spent “eating good meals and discussing what meals we were going to eat next,” she wants to incorporate those ideals into Camp Delicious’ mission “Throughout the years, I’ve found that people use eating as a means to an end. It just completely defeats the purpose,” Fu says. “It’s about time we bring back some enjoyment to food. We can’t always be thinking about what we can’t or shouldn’t eat. We need to just enjoy what’s been prepared for us. That’s healthier — for our bodies and our minds.” In the spirit of no judgement, Bonci also points out that our growing nation of “foodies” is sometimes more appropriately referred to as a nation of “feudies.” “Everyone is more focused on what not to eat rather than what to eat,” she explains. “The idea of nutrient or food elimination without discrimination or food-blaming processed, refined, GMO, etc. has created a culture of exclusionary and elitist eating. Everyone cannot afford to buy organic and should not feel ashamed or nutritionally deficient if they choose not to.” Instead, we should embrace a wide range of ingredients and flavors, getting back to Fu’s initial goal of broadening minds. At Camp Delicious, no food group is off limits, allowing participants to learn everything from how to bake bread to how to cut and cook a steak. And the effects of the camp are even more satisfying than the dishes its students learn to create. “My favorite part of the camp is the last day, when our campers showcase their skills by providing culinary thrills for parents and friends. It’s quite rewarding to see them taking pride in their culinary creations,” Bonci says. “I would love for the program to get national attention and create the template so that other cities can create, ideate, and replicate what we have done to take this program to every plate in every state!” For more information on Camp Delicious, visit luminari.org.

Making Room for

MUSHROOMS BY SIERRA SMITH PHOTOGRAPH BY MICHAEL FORNATARO STYLING BY ALYSSA OTTO

A

s a kid, mushrooms were the one vegetable that my parents wouldn’t make me eat. The color and texture reminded me of rubber, so I dismissed the remarkably versatile fungi. Now, in my adult years, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a dish where I don’t add copious amounts of mushrooms. Turns out, they are super delicious and packed with nutrients. Although mushrooms are technically classified as fungi, due to a lack of leaves, seeds, and roots, the U.S. Department of Agriculture does consider them as vegetables. Surprisingly, mushrooms provide nutrients found in core food groups like produce, meat, and grains. They’re also a great source of niacin, riboflavin, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin D, calcium, and more! Plus, they’re grown sustainably, thriving in mixtures of organic waste like crushed corn cobs, soybean hulls, and cocoa shells. With thousands of varieties of edible mushrooms growing globally, and tastes ranging from floral to peppery to umami, it’s easy to add flavor to any dish. The most popular varieties of mushrooms — including cremini, white button, and shitaki — are easily found at local grocery stores and farmers markets, and make great additions to Asian and Italian cuisine. Plus, mushrooms with a particularly meaty flavor profile make excellent vegetarian substitutions — we’re looking at you, Portobello!

Mushrooms are currently in season, pairing well with other spring veggies like Swiss chard and onion. My favorite way to combine them all is with a vegetarian stir-fry. Sauté garlic and sliced onions in olive oil over medium heat. Let that simmer for a few minutes, then add in mushrooms, salt, pepper, and basil. When the mushrooms begin to soften, add in thinly sliced chard stems, stirring to combine all ingredients. Afterwards, add in the chopped chard leaves and sauté for another two minutes. Garnish with lemon and basil.
