Rancho Bernardo Inn's Avant unveils garden-focused tasting menu - pacificsandiego.com

Seating is limited to 12 diners. The dinners will go on hiatus during the busy holiday season, then return in 2020.Gentile, a Cortez Hill resident who turned 29 last week, said the Avant Garde menu will give him a chance to experiment and deliver diners with the sort of cutting-edge fine-dining experience that Avant’s predecessor, the El Bizcocho restaurant, was famous for.“We’ll give it the vibe of ‘El Biz’ but with food from 2025,” he said. “We’ll be doing a lot of molecular gastronomy things, and we’ll make it more of an interactive meal to give it a 2- to 3-Michelin star experience where I can show off everything I’ve got.” Advertisement Sous-vide California lamb with beet glass, butter powder, blossoming onion and hickory rosemary smoke, one of the dishes on the new Avant Garde tasting menu at Rancho Bernardo Inn’s Avant restaurant.(Courtesy photo) Gentile has been a boy wonder for much of his cooking career, which began in early childhood when he made raviolis with his Italian father every Christmas Eve. He joined the kitchen team at the Inn on Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., at 17, and two years later was promoted to sous chef, making him the youngest chef ever hired at the famed restaurant.Next, he staged (interned) around the country at four Michelin-starred restaurants, including Thomas Keller’s French-American cafe Per Se in New York and Grant Achatz’s molecular gastronomy mecca, Alinea, in Chicago. Finally he landed in his dream city of San Diego, where he landed a job at Searsucker and was promoted from line cook to sous chef in just one month. At age 20, he was named executive chef at the short-lived Gabardine restaurant. Then he worked at L’Auberge Del Mar’s Kitchen 1540 and La Jolla’s Nine-Ten before being appointed opening executive chef at Double Standard Kitchenetta in the Gaslamp Quarter at age 24.Double Standard’s elevated opening menu proved too ambitious for its budget-conscious diners, but the restaurant’s owner, David Mainiero, thought Gentile’s finer-dining concept would work well in his native Arizona. So last fall, Gentile headed to Scottsdale, where he quickly renovated by hand a former burgers-and-beer joint to open Parma Italian Roots. It was an instant success.A Phoenix newspaper named Parma Best New Italian Restaurant and Gentile Best New Chef. But after six months shuffling between the two restaurants in San Diego and Scottsdale, Gentile missed his girlfriend in San Diego, and he wanted to get back in the kitchen again. That’s when the Avant opportunity came along. Anise “ravioli” with Dungeness crab, cucumber consomme and fermented lime oil, one of the dishes on the new Avant Garde tasting menu at Rancho Ber...

F.C. Florist Sends Bouquets to Congresswomen Targeted by Trump - Falls Church News Press

In response to in-fighting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and four freshmen Democratic congresswomen — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — Trump chose to chime in with a tweet, asking “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?” That line in particular struck a racial connotation with Americans who watched the verbal barbs being traded, especially ones who are a part of the country’s immigrant community. Advertisements Rabinovich decided to lend some scented support to the congresswomen after seeing customers send floral arrangements to Pelosi as well as, as she put it, “an assistant for a well-known female singer” deliver some to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. So the Russian refugee who immigrated to the U.S. when she was six years old sent custom arrangements to each of the congresswomens’ offices in D.C. as an act purely motivated by human decency. “If somebody wants to withhold their support of a small business because they think it’s a political move then that’s ridiculous,” Rabinovich said, who mentioned that she hasn’t received a response from any of the congresswomen as of yet. “I don’t think anyone would fault me for doing something nice for someone. Just because I sent flowers to people in the Democratic party doesn’t mean I did anything negative to anyone in the Republican party.” Rabinovich’s gesture landed her press coverage in other outlets, including American University’s WAMU, an interview on the Thom Hartmann Show and an article on the website Democra...

Eugene Day Obituary - Pacifica, CA | San Francisco Chronicle - Legacy.com

Tom (and Sophie), and his sister Grace. He was an adoring grandpa and enjoyed every minute he had with his grandchildren - Marina, Lindsay, Emily, Cortez, and Zoe. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews who span the United States, from California to as far east as Maine. And he really enjoyed traveling to visit them.Eugene was a devout man and a longtime parishioner of St. Peter Parish in Pacifica and the Men's Club. He had a huge passion for the military and US history and he enjoyed having lengthy conversations with anyone about war and politics. He and his wife were also world travelers. Visiting just about every country across the globe during their years together, he loved telling stories about their travels. Cecelia and Gene also remodeled a second home in Ramona, South Dakota (the town where "Celia" was raised) and they spent a good portion of the year there. Gene became not only the "handyman" for the town, but even a bartender when the bartender couldn't make into work.Eugene had a productive life full of love, joy and service to others and he will be missed by the many people whom he has touched. He has chosen to be cremated and buried in Ramona, South Dakota. Services will be held in Pacifica on Saturday, September 7 at 10:30 AM at Saint Peter Parish located at 700 Oddstad Blvd. We welcome all to join the family for a reception directly following services at St. Peter's.In lieu of flowers, Eugene would request that donations in his honor be made to the Rebuilding Together Peninsula 841 Kaynyne St. Redwood City, CA 94065 or Missionary of Charity Gift of Love 160 Milagra Dr. Pacifica, CA 94044...

Tropical Gardening: Brighten fall gardening with flowering plants, trees - Hawaii Tribune Herald

Southwestern United States and Mexico. It grows well and is popular in every state and also in every civilized country of the world. When Cortez conquered ancient Mexico, he found marigolds growing there. The gorgeous golden marigolds were so beautiful that Cortez took seeds with him back to Spain. There, marigolds became the favorite flower of the devout to place at the altar of the Virgin Mary. Because of that, they were called Mary's gold and then became known as marigolds. Seeds of marigolds were taken to every civilized country of the world. They were so easy to grow and so beautiful, they grew popular everywhere. In India, marigolds are the favorite flower to put in lei to place around a person's neck to indicate friendship, and because of that they have become known as friendship flowers. Marigolds, zinnias, petunias and many other annuals with bright blooms are natural for adding color. You might also expand the beauty and interest of your floral borders by including low-maintenance foliage plants. What are some of the best to add color and texture contrast? Coleus immediately comes to mind and is probably the most popular. Little wonder, it's so versatile and vivid. The plants, with their brilliantly patterned leaves, are flashy in sun or shade. You will especially appreciate how coleus can transform problem shady spots into a rainbow of color. Use it to beautify areas along the north or east sides of your house, or garage or in containers on shady porches or patios, even under trees. Coleus also can take direct sun in cooler gardens. Coleus is just as much a favorite houseplant as it is a garden subject. They thrive in pots and are easy to propagate by cuttings. Other favorites include the many varieties of begonia, canna, caladium and geranium. Check out the vast array of seeds and bulbs available at garden shops. Other interesting plants you will want to consider are Euphorbia leucocephala, or snow on the mountain, and the many colors of poinsettia. A close relative of the Euphorbias, the Christmas poinsettia will soon be on the market, and early purchase can add color from November-March. You can sow seeds of such annuals in boxes, pots or outdoors. If you use some sort of container, make certain that drainage is good. You can sow the seeds in vermiculite, peat moss, sand or mixtures of these. You also can buy plants already started at several garden stores and nurseries in the area. If you start your own plants, water them, when seeds are in place, cover containers with a piece of glass or plastic and place in a protected location away from direct sunlight. In a few days, the seeds will germinate and more light will be needed to prevent leggy and poorly colored seedlings. ADVERTISING When the first pair of true leaves develop, it is time for transplanting. Set the tiny plants in pots or plant bands. Later, plant them outdoors in their permanent location. Using your creativity, you can brighten your home and garden from fall until spring. Share this story ...
