(300 E Third St) NEWS AVOID FROZEN PIPES Winter is here, and cold weather is sweeping the Bluegrass. Frozen pipes can leave you without water in the worst weather, and cost a lot to repair. Kentucky American Water reminds residents of a few simple steps to help prevent frozen water pipes, and what to do if your water line does freeze. Before the cold weather: Check sprinklers or irrigation systems to make sure everything is off. Fix drafty windows and plug drafts around doors in areas near water lines. Wrap your pipes with insulation for added protection. When temperatures stay below freezing (below 32 degrees): If pipes run through cabinets or vanities, open the doors to let warmer room temperatures flow in. Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets to keep the water from freezing. If you’re going out of town, set the thermostat no lower than 55 degrees. If your pipes do freeze: Be sure to know where your home’s main water valve is located and shut it off immediately. Thaw pipes with warm air, a hair dryer or space heater will work. However, be sure not to leave heaters unattended and do not use kerosene heaters or open flames. Once the pipes have thawed, slowly turn water back on. Then check for any cracks or leaks that might have been caused by freezing.   WINTER HOME MAINTENANCE If you didn’t take steps to winterize your home in the fall, here is some quick maintenance checks to help you protect your home. Clean the fireplace. After a very frigid winter, creosote–an extremely flammable oil produced by coal or wood ash smoke–will build up in the chimney. If you didn’t clean your fireplace before winter, hire a chimney cleaner now to get rid of creosote and other build-up. Check your plumbing pipes. It’s always safe to get your pipes checked if they are old, or if you’ve been hearing strange noises from them. When water builds up in pipes and freezes, it can cause leaks, cracks and breaks. Inspect your roof. Your roof endures the brunt of winter conditions, wearing down over time. Weather conditions can cause shingles and tiles to break and create exposed areas in the underlayment where leaks and holes can form, which allows water to seep through to your attic. Maintain your heating system. Your heating system works overtime in the winter. Have your heating system checked by a professional if you hear strange noises coming from the vents, or if you suddenly notice cold spots in parts of your home. Don’t wait for the ultimate issue — your heating system to go completely out — before you have it serviced. Hang extra window treatments. Consider hanging extra curtains and blinds in the living room and bedrooms to help insulate and keep the heat in. Thermal curtains offer added lining for increased insulation. Clear snow from driveways and walkways. Snow and ice build-up can be dangerous. For your safety, and for the safety of your family members and neighbors, it is important to immediately plow or shovel snow and cover traffic areas with salt

  • The Winter Farmers’ Market, Lexington, KYThe Winter Farmers’ Market, Lexington, KY

    Surprises Await At the Winter Market By Tom Yates Early last Saturday morning, I planned to quietly slip out of the house for a quick trip to the indoor winter farmers’ market.  Although it’s a fairly short walk from our house, I decided to drive because it was freezing outside. I grabbed my Martha Stewart market-designated canvas tote bag and drove down our driveway.  After two or three thumpity thumps, I realized I had a flat tire. Great.  It was really early, very cold, and I was dressed like an unkempt overly bundled up character from a wintertime South Park episode. All bundled up with nowhere to go. Bliss. I love the serenity of the indoor winter farmers’ market. It was calm and quiet with gentle guitar music humming through hidden speakers. It felt great to be back at the market. Quarles Farm had canned vegetables, salsas, chow-chows, relishes, breads, and coffee cakes. Even at 9:00 a.m. , I couldn’t resist a taste of their stewed beef wafting  heavenly aromas from cranked up slow cookers.  Samples? Sure. Perched on a higher level overlooking the other vendors, Elmwood Farm offered the motherload of the indoor market.  They had the usual suspects; baskets of watermelon radishes, beets, turnips, black radishes, sweet potatoes, collard greens, winter squash, gorgeous celeriac, garlic, organic eggs, and chicken. I was totally surprised by bags of fresh English Bordeaux spinach.  Really?  In January? With deep green lacy leaves highlighted by bright red veins and stems, the spinach reminded me of  delicate swiss chard. Apparently, it’s a hardy variety that grows profusely until temperatures dip into the teens. They actually harvested their spinach during our latest snowfall! It was still damp….from the snow. Wow. I filled my bag with organic eggs, spinach, Stripetti squash, garlic, and sweet potatoes before driving home. It’s been a while since our kitchen countertops were covered with market booty. I was giddy and couldn’t wait to play with my stash. I wanted to try something different with the small sweet potatoes, so I adapted a recipe from Fine Cooking and threw together individual sweet potato and goat cheese galettes.  Crazy, right? Goat cheese and sweet potatoes? Weird,  fascinating, fabulous, and a far cry from sweet potato casserole. Before getting started, I slushed  through our snow-covered back deck to snip handfuls of fresh thyme and chives. I pulled out my mandolin and sliced the sweet potatoes into thin rounds. After buttering small individual ramekins, I filled them with alternating layers of sweet potatoes, parmigiano reggiano, crumbled goat cheese, fresh thyme, salt, and pepper before ending with a final layer of goat cheese. After preheating the oven to 375 degrees, I placed the galettes onto a foil-lined sheet pan and slid them into the oven to bake alongside a pan of  roasting whole grape tomatoes. Because  the individual galettes were small, I checked on them frequently.  I burn stuff…a lot. Really. Yep. After 45 minutes, they were beautifully browned and tender, so I pulled them from the oven to rest. Pomegranate Molasses-Glazed Smoked Pork Chops. I cranked a cast iron grill pan over high heat until it was smoking hot  and tossed two smoked boneless pork chops onto the grill to cook through. While the chops caramelized on the grill, I brushed them generously with a thick ruby red glaze made with 1/2 cup pomegranate molasses, 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar, the juice of a fresh lemon, and a splash of red wine. The glaze seared onto the  pork flesh like molten lava, sealing the juices inside while encrusting it in a sweet tart candied pomegranate shell.  Just before the pork chops combusted, I pulled them from heat and slid them into a low oven to keep warm. After a glass of wine or three, I gave the snow-kissed spinach a quick rinse before sauteing it in olive oil with minced garlic, shallots, and julienned red bell peppers. I plated the wilted garlicky spinach and nestled the sweet potato goat cheese galettes into the spinach nests.  After scattering fresh julienned red peppers over the spinach and galettes, I slid the tart sticky pomegranate glazed pork chops onto our plates before tumbling roasted grape tomatoes to the side. Lemon zest and sliced chives finished them off. Ok. So, here’s the deal.  It was a ridiculous riot of flavor. Really. The earthy spinach balanced the tart sweet moistness of the pork chops with bits of pungent garlic, sweet red pepper, and meltingly soft shallots. When sliced, the plump roasted grape tomatoes popped their sweet wet juices over  the pork, creating a bonus sauce. Win. The sweet potato goat cheese galettes were ridiculous.  Oh. My. The cheeses didn’t ooze or drip.  It wasn’t about that. The galettes were delicate, soft, and sweet. The nutty parmigiano added subtle saltiness while the fresh thyme provided floral undertones. The goat cheese profoundly elevated the simple  galettes to another  level. Suspended between layers of thinly sliced sweet potatoes, the soft goat cheese had the mouthfeel of tangy soft marshmallows. Air pillows. Clouds. Fabulous. Wow. Check out the indoor winter farmers’ market. It’s full of surprises.   Chef Tom’s food and cooking column appears on page 11 of the print issue of Ace.

  • Writer and Kentucky native, Sue Grafton dies at 77Writer and Kentucky native, Sue Grafton dies at 77

    After a two-year battle with cancer, Louisville native and iconic mystery writer, Sue Grafton, died in Santa Barbara, California at the age of 77. Most known for her ‘alphabet’ crime series books starring the private eye Kinsey Millhone character, Grafton spent time between her Kentucky and California homes and it was on the west coast where she spent her final moments surrounded by family. “Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things moved quickly,” Grafton’s daughter Jamie Clark said in a Facebook post. “Sue always said that she would continue writing as long as she had the juice. Many of you also know that she was adamant that her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows, and in that same vein, she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name.” Grafton’s crime novel series each began with a different letter of the alphabet, which gained her notoriety. In 1982, the first of the series “A is for Alibi,” was published and her last book “Y is for Yesterday,” was released in August of 2017. Unfortunately, Grafton’s death occurred before she could give a finale for Kinsey Millhone with “Z is for Zero,” which was scheduled to be released in 2019. According to her husband, Steven Humphrey, Grafton was unable to come up with a concept she liked for the final book while undergoing cancer treatment. The New York Times best-selling author garnered many accolades including three Shamus Awards (1986, 1991, 1995), the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America and the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, which boasts former winners such as James Elroy, Mark Salzman and Dean Koontz. However, Grafton’s love for her Kentucky roots made her appreciate the “Hometown Hero” banner the city of Louisville awarded her, more than anything else in her career. She attended Atherton High School and graduated from the University of Louisville in 1961 and it was here, where her father’s passion for detective stories inspired her path in the genre. The writer would occasionally use her hometown or parts of it at least, for the adventures in her book. In “O is for Outlaw,” the character goes to Louisville for research. In “L is for Lawless,” Grafton wanted to use Louisville’s Cave Hill Cemetery as the setting for the end of the book but the owner refused due to her fear of tourists bothering the property. The owner had heard Bonaventure Cemetery kept getting lots of visitors because it was featured in the novel “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” and wanted no part of it. So Grafton changed the name of the cemetery to “Twelve Oaks” and placed it way out in Oldham County because “I didn’t want her thinking my dead people were poaching on hers.” After a 30-year absence from the state, Grafton came back to Louisville to be honored with the Distinguished Alumni Award by the University of Louisville. While at a luncheon for the event, she was impressed that people at her table were discussing how to improve the city. The moment had a significant impact on her because according to Grafton, in Hollywood, at luncheons you talk about your psychic nutritionist and high colonics. But Louisville isn’t Hollywood. That same weekend, she and her husband went out and bought a house to become Kentucky residents again and in 2000, they bought and restored Lincliff, a 30-acre Georgian Revival house on the banks of the Ohio River. For the author, fixing the derelict property served as a love letter to the city. She loved her Kentucky roots. She adored the people and her fans in the state took pride in her being one of them. That is why her passing stings to literary fans in the Bluegrass. “At the Carnegie Center, we’re feeling B is for bummed,” author and Executive Director of the Carnegie Center Neil Chethik said. “Sue Grafton was one of the top-selling Kentucky writers of all time, and she represented the state well. She was a trailblazer among women mystery authors. For many of her fans, there will always be only 25 letters in the alphabet.”   Subscribe to the Ace e-dition for Lexington news, arts, culture, food, and entertainment news delivered to your inbox every Thursday morning.
