10/31 COMMODORE EVERETTE HOARD, THE QUEEN MARY, ALLISON SIDHU, FOODAL.COM

COMMODORE EVERETTE HOARD - THE QUEEN MARY

Everette Hoard, Queen Mary’s Commodore joins us with some spooky stories and info on all the exciting Halloween events you can do aboard the ship.

Commodore Everette, the current commodore of the Queen Mary, has been fascinated by her since he was very young. Due to his lifelong interest in her, he started working on the Queen Mary on Valentine's Day in 1981, ultimately earning the title of Commodore, a title which only a select few on the ship have ever been appointed to. The honorary title, originally instituted by Cunard Lines, suits the Commodore perfectly, as he knows the ship better than any one else.

OUR STORY 
A TRIP ACROSS TIME
The Queen Mary’s creation and launch was nothing if not extraordinary and her story is rich with history, elegance and grandeur. From the time her construction began in 1930 in Clydebank, Scotland, the Queen Mary was destined to stand in a class all her own. Despite suffering economic setbacks during the Great Depression, which stalled construction on the ship for several years, Cunard Line spared no expense on building the Queen Mary – which was originally known as job #534.

THE LEGEND BEHIND THE NAME
Legend has it that the board of directors at Cunard had decided to name the ship the Queen Victoria, which would have been in keeping with the tradition of Cunard ships having the "ia" suffix (Mauretania, Aquitania and Berengeria). As per protocol, legend states that the Cunard directors went to ask King George his blessing of the ship's proposed name saying, "We have decided to name our new ship after England's greatest Queen," meaning Queen Victoria, the King's Grandmother. Upon which the King is reported to have stated, "My wife (Queen Mary) will be delighted that you are naming the ship after her."

THE MAIDEN VOYAGE OF THE QUEEN MARY
On May 27, 1936, the Queen Mary departed from Southampton, England embarking on her maiden voyage. She boasted five dining areas and lounges, two cocktail bars and swimming pools, a grand ballroom, a squash court and even a small hospital. The Queen Mary had set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel, which the rich and famous considered as the only civilized way to travel. She quickly seized the hearts and imaginations of the public on both sides of the Atlantic, representing the spirit of an era known for its elegance, class and style.

FROM THE HEIGHT OF LUXURY TO WWII
For three years after her maiden voyage, the Queen Mary was the grandest ocean liner in the world carrying Hollywood celebrities like Bob Hope and Clark Gable, royalty like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and dignitaries like Winston Churchill. During this time she even set a new speed record, which she held for 14 years. But when the Queen Mary docked in New York in September 1939 that would be the last time she would carry civilian passengers for many years.

As World War II started, the Queen Mary's transformation into a troopship had begun. She was painted a camouflaged grey color and stripped of her luxurious amenities. Dubbed the "Grey Ghost" because of her stealth and stark color, the Queen Mary was the largest and fastest troopship to sail, capable of transporting as many as 16,000 troops at 30 knots. After the end of WWII, the Queen Mary began a 10-month retrofitting process, which would return the ship to her original glory. On July 21, 1947, the Queen Mary resumed regular passenger service across the Atlantic Ocean, and continued to do so for nearly two more decades.

THE LAST GREAT CRUISE
The increasing popularity of air travel helped signal the end of an era for the Queen Mary. By 1965 the entire Cunard fleet was operating at a loss and they decided to retire and sell the legendary Queen Mary. On October 31, 1967, the Queen Mary departed on her final cruise, arriving in Long Beach, California, on December 9, 1967. She has called Southern California her home ever since. The Queen Mary is now a floating Hotel, Attraction and Event & Wedding Venue, home to three world-class restaurants and an icon in Southern California.

MIKE ISRAETEL, FOUNDER OF RENAISSANCE PERIODIZATION - THE TOP FIVE MYTHS ABOUT HEALTHY EATING    
       
The world of diet and health is saturated with many myths, often leaving us confused of what to believe or not.  Some of these myths are so pervasive and widespread that to most people they have become fact. And of course while some myths require a bit of a leap of faith on the part of the believers, the most widespread and, for the health of the general public, the most damaging myths are often propagated because they do have at least a small grain of truth.

To help discover the real truth about healthy eating, the doctors, professors and registered dietitians  at RP, a leading health, fitness and nutrition company that takes a scientific approach to training and eating  have just released a new book - Understanding Healthy Eating.  The authors (bios at bottom of document) have also created a list of “The Top Five Myths About Healthy Eating.”  These are the myths that they believe are a combination of the most pervasive, least substantive, and most damaging to the public health.

10/19 HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPERT FELICIA STOLER, HOW TO RESET YOUR BRAIN WEIGHT, BOB GORDON

AMERICA'S HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPERT FELICIA STOLER - YOUR BRAIN MAY BE MAKING YOU FAT / HOW TO RESET YOUR BRAIN WEIGHT

MIND OVER MATTER 
Your Brain Weight May Be To Blame For Making You Fat -- Science Shows How You Can Reset It   

Chances are you are not lazy, greedy or woefully lacking willpower. Recent research reveals the real reason 41 percent of dieters gain back more weight than they’d lost in five years is due to a power play by the brain.  No matter what the scale says your weight is today, what scientists are learning is that the brain also has a set body weight range that it will fiercely defend to avoid the perils of potential imminent starvation. This range varies from person to person but is determined by genes and life experiences.

Felicia Stoler, author of “Living Skinny in Fat Genes” says if your weight has fluctuated through the years, at a higher level than you desire, chances are your brain weight is higher than you imagine.  Stoler says dieting can cause your brain weight to rise and it’s hard for your body to argue with your brain. She says the best way to reset your brain weight is to stop dieting and eat intuitively by allowing your brain to be your calorie tracker. This means eating only when you are hungry (not starving) and stopping when you are full. Within six to 12 months your ideal body weight should stabilize to your brain’s desired range.

Stoler will share with your audience four “mind over matter” tips to help get your brain focus in the right direction such as catering to cravings and swapping bad habits.  She will also discuss how big a role your genes play in predetermining your weight.  A recent study published in the journal Nature says there are 49 genes that determine abdominal fat, and you can inherit abdominal-fat-risk gene variations from your parents.  Stoler will explain how to manually override this predestination of your body type.

BOB GORDON - PROJECT DIRECTOR FOR THE CALIFORNIA LGBT TOBACCO EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP - WHY CALIFORNIA IS LAUNCHING AN IMPORTANT TOBACCO CESSATION CAMPAIGN

WHY CALIFORNIA IS LAUNCHING AN IMPORTANT TOBACCO CESSATION CAMPAIGN
Find out about a Statewide Campaign to get out the FACTS about Smoking & Why One Group of Consumers Smokes at Twice, the Rate of other Californians

October is LGBT History Month.  As we reflect and celebrate the advancements in LGBT equality over the years, one organization is mounting a statewide public service health campaign to tackle a serious smoking problem in California.  Bob Gordon of the LGBT Tobacco Education Partnership will explain the serious health issues with smoking, and how tobacco companies are targeting specific populations.   Learn why the tobacco industry has been targeting the LGBT community for decades, spending millions to infiltrate their daily lives and normalize tobacco use.   This timely topic affects more than just the LGBT community.   We hope you’ll book this timely public service interview.

KEY FACTS ABOUT SMOKING:

  • Lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals in California are twice as likely to smoke as the straight population in California (27% vs. 13%), according to a report from the California Depart of Public Health
  • According to the CDC, tobacco kills more people than HIV, car accidents, illegal drugs and suicide combined.
  • Tobacco use takes the lives of more than 30,000 LGBT people per year, putting more lives at stake than those currently threatened by AIDS in the US.

WHY TOBACCO IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM, ESPECIALLY FOR THE LGBT COMMUNITY:

  • The LGBT population is particularly vulnerable to menthol products, which pose an even greater health threat than regular cigarettes.
  • Higher smoking rates expose the LGBT community to more secondhand smoke in social settings like bars and restaurants.
  • Tobacco is particularly dangerous for transgender women taking estrogen for risk of blood clots, heart conditions and stroke.

BRUCE CAKEBREAD - PRESIDENT AND CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, CAKEBREAD CELLARS

Bruce Cakebread is president and chief operating officer of Cakebread Cellars since 2002. Bruce first studied Pomology (Tree Fruits) at California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo. When he decided to enter the family business he transferred to the Viticulture and Enology program at the University of California at Davis, where in 1978, he studied Enology and Viticulture.

After working alongside his father since the winery was founded in 1973, Bruce assumed the winemaking position in 1979, overseeing all vineyard operations and winemaking duties until 2002 when he became president and COO.

Discussing the Cakebread family’s philosophy of winemaking over the past 40 years, Bruce says, “We are very fortunate to have an excellent collection of vineyards and have worked alongside some of the best growers in Napa Valley for many years to produce consistently high quality wines over the past 40 years. These great vineyards, plus the fact that we have had only three winemakers over these forty years (Jack, myself and now Julianne for the past ten years), allows us to produce consistency in quality and our balanced style of elegant and complex wines with a fine finish that fits seamlessly into any meal or any occasion.”

Bruce is currently the President of the Napa Valley College Foundation Board, serves on the Viticulture and Enology Executive Leadership Board at UC Davis, is an alternate on the Napa County Flood Control District, and is past President of the Board of Napa Valley Vintners Association, serving in 2010 and in 2013.

WINEMAKING

Continuity and stability are bedrock values for Cakebread Cellars and our wines. Bruce Cakebread, formerly winemaker and now president of Cakebread Cellars, is the guardian of the commitment to quality his parents made at the dawn of Cakebread Cellars. This ethos is also evident in the long-term tenures of winemaker Julianne Laks, who has been with Cakebread Cellars 26 years, and cellarmaster Brian Lee, a 25-year veteran of the winery.

Julianne and Brian, along with Director of Viticulture, Toby Halkovich, have played key roles in enhancing wine quality at Cakebread Cellars through the adoption and implementation of innovative winegrowing strategies and technologies. Over the years, these have included night-harvesting to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition; whole-cluster pressing of white grapes to enhance juice and wine freshness and varietal intensity; and aging Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay in barrel on its spent yeast lees – a traditional French practice known as sur lie which produces a very rich, creamy style of Chardonnay. Julianne and Brian have become experts at matching the right barrels with particular lots of wine to ensure a seamless blend of oak and fruit character.

Additionally, choosing just the right equipment is also important. In recent years, Cakebread Cellars has acquired a new, state-of-the-art destemmer, berry sorter and juice chemistry analyzer, and is investigating new techniques for generating and conserving energy. (Cakebread Cellars is a green-certified winery, and its vineyards are green-certified and either farmed organically or sustainably.)

ESTATE VINEYARDS

Cakebread Cellars has vineyard properties located throughout Napa Valley and a location in the Anderson Valley. The winery ranches surrounding the production facility in Rutherford are where it all began. The first 22 acre parcel was purchased in 1972. Over the years, the family has continued to acquire additional vineyard parcels throughout Napa Valley and the North Coast. Today, the winery owns 13 sites totaling 1100 acres, 560 of which are currently planted. This judicious acquisition and development of vineyard land enables us to more completely control the quality of the fruit we grow and the wines we make.

ABOUT CHEF CELESTINO DRAGO
Chef Celestino Drago has played an integral role in the ever-evolving dining scene in Los Angeles for over two decades. Originally from Sicily, Celestino is regarded as one of the pioneers of Italian Cuisine in the US and has become one of Los Angeles’ most celebrated chefs, with honors ranging from Food & Wine Magazine selecting him as a “Best New Chef” to being an invited guest chef at the James Beard House in New York on multiple occasions and is the current Food Fare 2014 Chef of the Year.

From his affable demeanor to his inventive and delicious takes on Italian fare, Chef Celestino Drago has helped lay the groundwork for Italian cuisine in America today.

Before launching his restaurant empire in Southern California, Celestino attended mechanical school in Italy while simultaneously working at a restaurant in the city of Pisa called Pierino.  It was there that realized he “loved everything about the restaurant business.” Recognizing his culinary potential, the chef at Pierino worked closely with him and, in just three short years, Celestino took over as chef.

In 1979, Celestino was hired as chef at Los Angeles Italian restaurant, Orlando Orsini, prompting him to leave Italy to embark upon a new culinary career in the United States.  After working at Orlando Orsini, Celestino worked at Spectrum Foods before opening his first restaurant, Celestino, in Beverly Hills.  After receiving high praise, he was encouraged to open another restaurant, Drago, on bustling Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica. Drago was met with rave reviews and was consistently rated in the top 5 Italian restaurants in Los Angeles before it closed in 2011. It was Celestino's success at Drago that led to his subsequent ventures, which include his artisanal bakery, originally known as “Dolce Forno” now re-branded under the name Drago Bakery, the more upscale eatery, IL Pastaio in Beverly Hills, and Drago Centro in the heart of the Financial District in Downtown Los Angeles, as well as Drago Special Events & Catering which brings his highly sought-after fine dining experience directly into the home or private event setting. Celestino reached for the stars with his highly successful Drago Air Catering venture, which supplies prepared foods for several major airlines and private charters.

Celestino’s cuisine is deeply rooted in his childhood home in Sicily and since his arrival in Los Angeles he has been delighting diners with dishes that hearken back to his home country dishes imbued with the heritage and authenticity of true Italian fare. Celestino has been touted as one of the Best Italian Chefs in the United States by Bon Appétit and Los Angeles Times Restaurant Critic S. Irene Virbila has called Celestino, "one of the best-known Italian restaurateurs in Southern California."
