Sustainable. Organic. Local. August/September 2018

Photography by John Antaki   SIP For Latasha Jones, going to culinary school was an easy decision. Not only had it been a dream, it was in her blood. She grew up cooking with her grandmother. As she sits across the table from me, telling me about her journey, I get more and more excited to try her lemonade as she’s clearly passionate about it and Tavaris, her husband, raves about how good it is.

Luanne Hildebrandt shows me around and proudly tells story after story of her and her family’s experiences and I hang on every word. As part of the 4th generation of the German family that originally opened the grocery, she grew up cleaning the floors, taking orders, prepping meats for sandwiches, and doing odd jobs with her siblings and cousins. Over a century later the deli maintains a...

Photography by John Antaki   Eat Having spent more than 40 years in the restaurant business, Walter Clay, owner of Rae’s Coastal Cafe, knows what he’s doing when it comes to creating the ideal dining environment for anyone. The restaurant is strategically laid out with quiet corners for special dates, larger tables for families, a beautiful deck for friendly get-togethers, and a comfortable and welcoming vibe for everyone. Tucked into a quaint corner of a neighborhood off Walton Way, fabulous food and word-of-mouth has had people filling up tables every night for 25 years. When Rae’s first opened the...
