After years of eating only hybrid tomatoes, my first taste of an heirloom tomato eight years ago forever convinced me that hybrids no longer had a place on my plate. I was enlightened, to say the least. And so now with pork, according to Taste Network’s Brady Lowe, the founder of the Cochon 555 event (in St. Louis Aug. 25), it’s time to realize there is more to the pig, as well.
Remember the 1970s conversation pit, all sofa and no chairs? Well, in the newest spin on ‘social-able’ furniture arrangements, there’s nary a sofa to be found. Rather, designers are placing four beautiful chairs around a conversation-starting cocktail table or ottoman, like the revolving lazy Susan-style, black-lacquer tray shown here, which can be removed for serving or dinner on your lap. The advantages of this decidedly unconventional living room setup? In addition to the fact that you won’t see it in every house you visit, it really does encourage relaxed conversation, while eliminating a lot of the placement problems often encountered with the traditional sofa and two chairs. You simply float this one in the middle of the room and voila: instant, unexpected chic. So lose the sofa, and pull up a chair!
As a lifelong garden-lover and fan of imaginative landscape design, I have a particular fondness of water gardens. I’ve been studying the roots of regional garden design concepts, and I’ve been fortunate to have seen many of the world’s finest examples, including the gardens of Ryoan-ji, the serene dry sea of neatly raked gravel in Japan; the damp Zen moss gardens in Kyoto; the formal and ornate fountains of the French gardens of the Palais du Versailles; the relaxed lakeside English landscapes designed by Capability Brown; Villa d’Este, the fabulous fountain garden near Rome; and Generalife in Granada, Spain. My professional interest in the ancient four-part garden style has only increased after seeing the beautifully restored courtyard gardens in Granada last spring. You will find pictures of these famous and elegant gardens, with their linear canals and flowing fountains, in every book on the history of landscape design.
Two of our favorite things in the restaurant world are fine cuts of meat and a comfortable, low-key atmosphere to enjoy them in. Citizen Kane's Steak House has plenty of both, as we were reminded on our most recent visit.
If experience matters in the real estate market, then the Ryans have it covered. More than two decades ago, when John Ryan teamed up with his mother, Anne, he brought about 15 years of prior experience in commercial real estate. “We both brought a lot of diverse talents to the table,” John Ryan says. Today, the team focuses its efforts on upper-end residential properties, with an average sale price of about $1.6 million. “There are no other agents with that kind of an average,” he says. “We know the properties and the clientele. We approach it in a very businesslike way and our clients like that.”
