Advertising & Interactive by Miami LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2016 9 EDITOR S LETTER After a month of cleansing fasting juicing and every other trend that the new year new you brings I m here to totally derail your efforts. But for good reason the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. I m not ashamed to say that I wait all year for the gluttonous festival to roll around each February carefully plotting and planning every morsel I will eat and which celebrity chefs I will stalk. This year I m especially excited about a new element of SOBEWFF. The festival has expanded north with the inaugural Taste Fort Lauderdale Series which is five nights of dinners and parties showcasing our homegrown neighborhood talent. While the national media always focuses on Miami s exploding food scene (and rightfully so) it s also Broward County s time to shine. Leading the way is energetic Chef Robert Irvine of Food Network s Restaurant Impossible who will kick off the series with his seafood-centric event Seaside Eats at the stunning Bonnet House. In this issue you can read about Irvine s event all the new possibilities in his future and even a pre-show ritual that involves tequila and pushups. Plus we gathered some of our favorite Broward chefs for a photo shoot and discussion about what parts of the festival they re most excited about. I m so proud of everything Broward County is doing in the culinary world and I hope you will check out one of the Taste events or even just find a new restaurant to support our local chefs. We can t let Miami have all the fun The A-List Angela s Lusts and Musts This Month Want to have the perfect pout or a gorgeous glow for V-Day Local beauty guru Leslie Munsell of Beauty For Real just launched a new collection of skin care and makeup.

Sometimes this simply involves a can-do attitude and tequila. Before each show I pray I drink a shot of tequila I do a few pushups and we go have fun he says. And we change the world one second at a time. There s the focused Irvine who militantly works to save failing restaurants on Food Network s TV show Restaurant Impossible and then there s the Irvine who s just a grown-up kid who doesn t take himself too seriously. During Lifestyle s photo shoot at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach s Jove Kitchen Irvine couldn t stop clowning around. He would spontaneously place small white plates on his head like Mickey Mouse ears or use the restaurant s cheese graters as arms pretending to be a robot. (Don t worry they were properly cleaned before placed on tables for guests.) People think I m such an intense guy and I am when I m doing a job says the muscular chef who s known for his trademark uniform of fitted T-shirts and jeans. I also love to have fun. To date Irvine has completed more than Seaside Eats hosted by Robert Irvine will take place on Feb. 24 at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens. For more information and tickets visit sobefest.com. 34 FEBRUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM Before each show I pray I drink a shot of tequila I do a few pushups and we go have fun. 150 episodes of Restaurant Impossible. The show is about caring not about making people look bad. I turn cameras off he emphasizes. Irvine says his track record has an 80 percent success rate in helping businesses survive. I recently went back to a restaurant that we did four-and-a-half years ago and had one of the best meals of my life. That was extremely rewarding. The brawny Brit recently published his own self-help fitness book Fit Fuel (despite publishers wanting him to do a cookbook) and launched his own line of protein bars FIT Crunch. While he s the first to admit that the restaurant business is very fickle where you re not going to make a lot of money he says it s about taking calculated risks. We re opening a restaurant right now in the Pentagon. Around 38 000 people are in the Pentagon every day and they ve got to eat somewhere. That s a pretty good risk. Irvine s world of possibilities will now have roots in Fort Lauderdale. Later this month the chef will kick off the South Beach Wine and Food Festival s expansion into Broward County with the inaugural Taste Fort Lauderdale Series which will be five nights of parties and dinners showcasing Fort Lauderdale s culinary talent. Familiar with the notoriety of South Florida s dining scene Irvine admits he s been taking note of how much it is changing. We hear about Miami Miami and it s great but there are some amazing chefs in Fort Lauderdale he says. I think it s the right place to expand the festival. Irvine is hosting the series first event Seaside Eats at the historic Bonnet House where 12 to 15 Fort Lauderdale chefs will offer their best interpretations of seaside-style dishes. Food is about fun he says. You get a chance to meet the chefs this is up-close and personal. The fearless Irvine is ready for his own close-up. Fort Lauderdale better get ready for Robert Irvine because it s going to be crazy. Just have a shot of his favorite Don Julio waiting. with Irvine What do you consider impossible in your life I truly believe that anybody can achieve anything if they have passion and a can-do attitude. You say you travel 345 days a year what is your idea of a day off My wife and I sleep in normally until 10 or 11. We work out together and then we ll do shopping and errands and then go to a movie theater where we watch two movies back-to-back. What kind of movies do you enjoy I m a soppy emotional movie kinda guy I m always the one who cries at the movies. What is your go-to meal Roast chicken and mashed potatoes green beans or asparagus. I m a real simple eater. What advice would you give someone opening a restaurant You need six months of revenue in the bank. You need six months of capital expenditure in the bank outside of whatever you re already spending. And then you have to think of a fund so if something breaks you re not dipping into those other funds. It takes six to 12 months to get your name out there. Do you take your own advice when starting a new business venture I do and if I don t my wife is a good conscience. I run everything by her. She doesn t give me the answers that she thinks I want. In the real world there are a lot of people who will do that. She ll give me the hard truth.

Elizabeth Taylor once remarked I feel as though I m only the custodian of my jewelry. When I die and they go off to auction I hope whoever buys them gives them a good home. A good home indeed. Much of her jewelry is now part of Bulgari s Heritage Collection where some 760 pieces show the importance of the highend jeweler throughout Italian fashion history. While the Heritage Collection is housed in Italy visitors that go to the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale exhibit Bellissima Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968 presented by Bulgari can see 18 selected works from the time period including a pair of pendant earrings that previously belonged to Taylor. We wanted to find something unique rare and unusual for this exhibit says Lucia Boscaini Bulgari s brand and heritage curator. While Bulgari owns a number of Taylor s pieces (the fashion house bought back a portion of the actress collection in 2011) these particular platinum earrings with canary-yellow and white diamonds circa 1963 are on loan from an American collector and are rarely exhibited in public. We wanted something unique rare and unusual for this exhibit. Lucia Boscaini Bulgari brand and heritage curator On view from Feb. 7 through June 5 the NSU exhibit also acknowledges Italy as an epicenter of high fashion. In addition to the pieces from the Bulgari Heritage Collection there are more than 200 designer garments from elegant cocktail dresses to creations made for actresses such as Ava Gardner Ingrid Bergman and Kim Novak plus made-in-Italy accessories from Ferragamo Fragiacomo Gucci and Roberta di Camerino. The exhibition a project by MAXXI National Museum of the XXI Century Arts in Rome also doesn t dismiss the importance of fashion and its connectivity to Italy s architecture photography theater and cinematic arts. Paintings by Lucio Fontana whose slashed and pierced canvases inspired fashion designer Mila Sch n and filmmaker Federico Fellini whose 1960 La Dolce Vita is credited with reinvigorating interest in the Italian city are given their rightly due in the exhibition. Bulgari s five showcases of breathtaking jewels add to the context of Italy s importance in high fashion circles. We selected very important pieces for this exhibition says Boscaini.

There are stunners A platinum necklace with white diamonds was a favorite of actress Gina Lollobrigida a convertible necklace which can be split into two pieces then worn as two bracelets. A vintage Bib necklace which Boscaini refers to as a perfect combination of color is notable in its unusual and stunning use of yellow gold diamonds turquoises amethysts and emeralds. It was previously owned by Lyn Revson the wife of Charles Revson Revlon s founder. Other pieces include Serpenti bracelets and watches first introduced in 1949 and now a signature icon for Bulgari. There s even an evening bag with an exterior made from pure gold. It s supple and feels like silk says Boscaini. As if it being made from gold wasn t enough the circa-1963 bag is encrusted with cabochon turquoise and 30 round brilliant-cut diamonds. All of the jewelry is a work of art and perfectly at home in a museum says Boscaini. For more information visit nsumuseum.org.

LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2016 43 44 FEBRUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2016 45 EDUCATION S PE CIAL A D V E R T I SI NG SE CT I ON TESTING TIPS BY CHRISTOPHER SANDERSON On March 5 the College Board will unveil the redesigned SAT which will feature significant changes in question types scoring and timing. Here Christopher Sanderson president of Sanderson Test Prep shares three important things students should consider when prepping for the SAT. 1. KNOW THE TEST. The key to succeeding is to be familiar with the ins and outs of the exam. Scoring on the new SAT is back to a scale of 1600 points 800 possible in Math and 800 combined between Reading and the Writing and Language sections. The test begins with the 65-minute Reading section where students must answer a total of 52 questions spread across five passages. The biggest change in this section is that there are no longer sentencecompletion questions (those that directly test vocabulary knowledge). A strong vocabulary is still essential to success but students don t have to spend time memorizing endless lists of obscure words. Instead reading well-written scholarly articles is the best way to prepare. The Writing and Language section tests the same core grammar as before but does so in the context of a passage. Here students will have 35 minutes to answer 44 questions across four passages. Although the grammar concepts are similar the added challenge is that contextbased comprehension questions are integrated into each passage along with the grammar questions. Students can develop this multitasking skill by editing their own essays or editing essays for a friend. The Math section is where the College Board has really turned the test on its head. There are now two math sections one with 20 questions to be answered in 25 minutes (with a calculator) and one with 38 questions to be answered in 55 minutes (without a calculator). Although requiring one section to be completed without a calculator is a step forward for the SAT students have expressed a plethora of concerns. There are no shortcuts here. Students should practice mental math as much as they can on regular homework assignments. The last section is the Essay which gives students 50 minutes to read a passage and respond to a prompt. Although there is the option to take the test without the essay many colleges and universities require it. Look at sample questions online or practice with full-length tests available in the The Official SAT Study Guide by the College Board to get acquainted with the format. 2. PLAN SAT PREP IN ADVANCE. The end of 10th grade is the ideal time to look at a prep timeline to get ready for the SAT. An industry standard recommendation for SAT prep is to study 30 minutes per day for 10 weeks leading up to the exam. Students should also aim to take several full-length practice tests to get used to the pacing of the exam. 3. GET GOOD INFORMATION. Don t believe everything you hear. The best resources are those provided from the test-makers themselves. You can check out the College Board website (collegereadiness. collegeboard.org) for up-to-date information. In the following pages read about the area s top educators and the schools making a difference. 46 FEBRUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM E D U C A T I O N L R O F I R P E A D E L ES AMERICAN HERITAGE SCHOOL 12200 W.

I saw him walking around and approached him and said I m starting the Boca Raton Concours why don t you come down Case Recalls. Leno s initial response Isn t that where the old people are Leno not only came to the first and fifth but he s back for the 10th edition of the Boca Raton Concours to honor show founders Rick and Rita Case with the 2016 Automotive Lifetime Achievement Award. The other honoree is Stephen Cannon president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA. Rita and Rick are a true dynamic duo dear friends and real pioneers in the automotive industry says event chairman James E. McDonnell IV. Rick Case Automotive Group is mainly in Broward County but it also has locations in Atlanta and Cleveland. When Case was 14 he fixed up an old Ford and sold it in his parents driveway. I made more money than I made on my paper route in a year and I said That looks good to me he says. Case started buying more cars and fixing them up. I opened my first used car lot when I was 19. That was the start he says. I opened another one and then I started getting into new motorcycles. Honda had come out with motorcycles and they were supposed to come out with cars and I wanted to get in on the ground floor. In 1967 he opened his first new car dealership selling Toyotas. He had 14 motorcycle dealerships in Ohio s major cities and then fulfilled his quest to get a Honda car dealership. He was the largest Honda dealer the first month and the first year in the U.S. Rita s family had a Honda dealership in Santa Rosa California and the couple met at a 1977 dealers meeting. We were the only singles at this Honda meeting Case says. The two were married in 1980. At that time Case was the only motorcycle dealer able to have Kawasaki Suzuki Honda and Yamaha at one location. He sold the motorcycle business in 1985 a year after Honda told him it was coming out with a new luxury brand Acura. Because Case was the largest Honda dealer he was given a choice of where he would put his Acura dealership. He looked at a few Sunbelt markets and eventually chose Plantation which wasn t far from the couple s second home in Fort Lauderdale. In March 1986 he opened his Acura dealership which neighbored a Hyundai dealership he d opened a month earlier. In 2002 the Cases started making their mark along I-75 in the Weston Davie area with another Honda dealership. It became the largest-volume Honda dealer in its first month and currently holds the record for selling 1 222 Hondas in a single month. Case also has the Acura record of selling 376 in a month. At eight stories high the Rick Case Volkswagen dealership was hailed as the tallest in the world when it opened in 2013 it is the German car company s largest at more than 328 000 square feet. Rick Case Automotive Group celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012. The following year it was named Automotive News only 2013 National All-Star Dealer in the privately held dealer category which encompasses 17 000 dealerships. How did Case accomplish all that growth I think it s our culture he says. We treat every customer as we would our best friend. 54 FEBRUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM Financial solutions at your fingertips Financial Tools Credit Restoration Credit Counseling Student Loan Consolidation IRS Representation Collector Harassment Loan Resources Visit Debt.com today or call 800-810-0989 for additional information.

And now Chef Clay Conley and his Buccan Group have expanded their culinary empire with Grato a modern Italian restaurant located on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Conley explains that he selected the location for his new outpost for personal reasons. I live in this part of West Palm Beach and we had a chance to buy the real estate in an up-andcoming part of the business district he says. I really wanted to create the kind of place I would bring my family and friends. I think we will see a lot of our clientele coming from the many neighborhoods near the restaurant. As for his first foray into Italian cuisine the James Beard Award-nominated chef says I have always cooked a lot of Italian food. It s comforting familiar and people like to eat it frequently. Grato s menu which is set at a refreshingly affordable price point features well-executed rustic Italian cuisine with practically everything made in-house. The open kitchen contains an impressive wood-fired brick oven for build-your-own pizzas as well as a sizable rotisserie used to spit-roast meats fish chicken and vegetables. A focus here is to create remarkable pastas all of which are handmade. The central pasta interpretations include bucatini carbonara with ham pork belly mint and pecorino mustard orecchiette with rabbit sausage and broccoli rabe and gemelli nero with octopus lemon tomato and olives. While Conley has put his own spin on familiar Italian recipes he says There s a reason the classics are classics. Grato isn t just Italian on the plate the restaurant s interior was designed to elicit the vibe of the country s classic trattorias. Designer Peter Niemitz used the space s soaring ceilings and exposed beams to create a light and airy feel. Additional elements such as Carrara marble leather bar stools and hand-hewn features lend sophistication to the room. While Conley promises Grato provides the same quality ingredients and warm service that has made Buccan such as success he says his new menu is more casual and points to one major difference Grato is more family-friendly than our other restaurants with a real kids menu (my first ever ) booster seats high chairs and more. Grato currently serves dinner seven nights a week. It eventually will expand to include lunch and weekend brunch. 1901 S.
