Mastering the Art of Flavor

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

Held at Haven’s Kitchen in Chelsea, 360 MAGAZINE experienced a foodie’s dream come true at “Mastering the Art of Flavor” culinary event. Six ordinary recipes transformed featuring distinguished flavors of Holland House and NAKANO. Hosted by MasterChef finalist Cate Meade, registered dietician Mia Syn as well as food stylist Jessica Formicola.

They shared incredible resources and recipes in preparation for the holiday season. Cooking tips on how we can remain calm and stress free in the kitchen. Take it from Chef Cate, “Prep and prepare” is the ingredient to a five-star meal.

As the spokeswomen for Holland House, Cate shared her three Holiday stress-free recipes developed with cooking wine. For starters, the Spinach Feta and Artichoke Dip is the perfect dish for hosting where guests can gather and enjoy. A 1/2 cup of Holland House White cooking wine comes together for a robust bold flavor in every bite. Served best with vegetable crudité, baked pita chips and/or crackers.

The Sherry Cherry Pork Loin Roast was Cate’s showstopping dish, demonstrating that a slow cooker is an essential kitchen appliance. Cooked to perfection, the sweet but savory taste served with Sherry Cherry sauce complemented the tender meat. Layered with braised onions and roasted vegetables for hearty appetites.

Beyond her ‘easy bake oven’ years, Cate’s Flourless Chocolate Cake is a healthier option for dessert without sacrificing taste. Holland House Red cooking wine with macerated strawberries emerged in red wine added depth to the cake’s moisture. Garnished with sifted powdered sugar or cocoa powder for a sweet dusting.

Post holiday season we all desire healthier behaviors to impact our lifestyles. Mia Syn, RDN shared “Healthy Habits for the New Year.” Her recipes were inspired by Nakano, a gluten-free seasoned rice vinegar. It’s sweet light flavor dresses up any dish from salads to pasta.

Each recipe takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare. Her first recipe Chopped Chinese Chicken Salad with Sesame Dressing is light but filling. NAKANO Toasted Sesame Rice vinegar poured over salad ingredients and thinly sliced chicken breasts.

Mia’s meals include a rainbow of vegetables which are packed with nutrients. A sheet pan required with a simple toss in the oven. My favorite, the low-carb Teriyaki Chicken breasts. Bite-sized morsels surrounded with veggies and peppers cut into small florets. Drizzle NAKANO Rice Vinegar with teriyaki sauce on top and bake for 7 minutes.

Cauliflower Fried Rice is the best substitute for a starchy option; including peas, carrots, cabbage with an egg.

Jessica Formicola hosted a food styling lesson filled with tips and tricks to wow your guests and get the most social engagement through your content. Her most vital and resourceful tip is to “use what you have on hand” to elevate any five-star dish. Be sure to include the real ingredients in your dish for a relatable and approachable take.

In short, if you’re looking to get in the kitchen during the holidays, be sure to use Holland House and NAKANO products to enhance your food’s overall appearance and taste.

Ne-Yo, Another Kind of Christmas, 360 MAGAZINE, Motown Records

NE-YO XMAS ALBUM

Purchase Another Kind Of Christmas HERE 

 

Today, NE-YO released Another Kind Of Christmas (Motown Records/Compound Entertainment), his first-ever holiday album. The three-time GRAMMY® winner brings his own unique point-of-view to the season with five newly-penned tracks and reimagined versions of thoughtfully-selected Christmas classics – including “Someday At Christmas,” a plea for peace written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells for Stevie Wonder during the Vietnam War, and Marvin Gaye’s “I Want To Come Home For Christmas,” inspired by the plight of prisoners of war.

 

“NE-YO says, of the album “see you this Holiday season and every holiday season after! Think you’re gonna love it that much!”

 

“Just Ain’t Christmas” candidly captures the pain of a Christmas Eve break-up while the playful double entendres of “Open Mine Tonight” celebrate what goes down after the kids go to bed. “Talk About It” evokes childhood Christmas memories, complete with the inevitable family dramas that unfold – “somebody gon’ fight, somebody gon’ cry, somebody gon’ try to leave/Then they gon’ squash it all right before it’s time to eat.” NE-YO, Satori and Dre Island each take a verse on the reggae-influenced “Christmas Vibez,” which imagines a tropical holiday getaway for two. Other guest artists include Candice Boyd on “Carol Of The Bells” and RaVaughn on “Someday At Christmas.”

 

NE-YO puts his stamp on such standards as Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” originally recorded by Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, and “The Christmas Song,” which was written by Robert Wells and Mel Tormé and first recorded by the Nat King Cole Trio. He recorded Another Kind Of Christmas in Montego Bay, Jamaica with longtime collaborator Curtis “Sauce” Wilson producing many of the tracks.

 

NE-YO has sold a cumulative 20+ million adjusted albums worldwide. He has won three GRAMMY® awards and been honored with a total of 14 nominations, His first single, 2005’s “So Sick,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified quadruple Platinum. Since then, he has racked up a collection of hit singles – including “Sexy Love,” “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back” featuring Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. Three of his albums have entered SoundScan’s Top Current Albums chart at No. 1.

 

He has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. The Las Vegas native quickly became known as a go-to hitmaker, penning bangers like Rihanna’s “Unfaithful,” “Russian Roulette,” and “Take a Bow,” along with Beyoncé’s 2006 breakup anthem “Irreplaceable” and songs for such artists as Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, among others. NE-YO’s film and television credits include “Save the Last Dance,” “World of Dance,” “Battle: Los Angeles,” “Stomp the Yard,” George Lucas’ “Red Tails,” “Empire,” “The Wiz Live!” and “Step Up: High Water.”

By Alexandria Baiz × Vaughn Lowery

Fredericksburg, Texas the destination of historical sites and culture welcomes us. With the hidden treasures of food, wine and goods the Texas Hill Country is a must-visit.

Beginning with a stay at the one and only Hanger Hotel. This hotel has a WWII hangar of the romantic 1940’s to it’s design with fine woods and custom carpets. Famous for the Observation Deck on the second floor with views adjacent to the airport to see the planes come and go from one end of the runway to the end.

Later a stop to the Pioneer Museum Complex preserved from the 19th century German Pioneer days. In the mid-1840s Germans faced every obstacle to come to Texas and create a unique German colony in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. The Museum strives to preserve and tell this story. With a combination museum and historical site, it reaches over 3.5 acres on Main Street in downtown Fredericksburg.

HOLIDAYS × FREDERICKSBURG, TX

Tenth Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony set for Friday, November 23, in Fredericksburg

Experience the unique mix of German Christmas traditions and warm Texan hospitality this holiday season in Fredericksburg. In partnership with the City of Fredericksburg, the Fredericksburg Convention & Visitor Bureau will begin the season with the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree and German Christmas Pyramid on the evening of Friday, November 23, at Marktplatz.

The festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. on the East side of the Vereins Kirche with entertainment throughout the evening by The TubaMeisters, The Low Brass Project band, the Fredericksburg Chorale and the Fredericksburg Akkordeon Klub. The countdown and lighting ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m.

Following the lighting ceremony, the entertainment will continue until 8:00 p.m. with more holiday favorites as Santa makes his way to the Oktoberfest Halle at Marktplatz, where free cookies, hot chocolate and bottled water will be available.

Cookies will be provided by a number of local businesses and hot chocolate will be prepared by the Fredericksburg Volunteer Fire Department.

Children are invited to take free photos with Santa (bring your own camera or phone), and groups are encouraged to take photos at the holiday selfie station, also at the Oktoberfest Halle.

In case of inclement weather, the entertainment and countdown will be relocated under the Adelsverein Halle at Marktplatz.

The German holiday spirit is most apparent with Fredericksburg’s 26-foot tall wooden German Christmas Pyramid that was hand-crafted in Germany in 2009 specifically for Fredericksburg. Considered staples in German holiday decorating, Christmas pyramids are wooden carousel-like structures (normally table-top size) that have several levels depicting Christmas motifs, such as angels and manger scenes.

Fredericksburg’s Community Christmas Tree, also part of the lighting ceremony, stands 30 feet tall and dons hand-crafted ornaments donated by Hill Country artisans. The beautifully lit Christmas tree and Christmas pyramid are the centerpiece of the holiday magic in Fredericksburg and will be prominently displayed at Marktplatz through January 6, 2019.

Devon Gilfillian: Winter Wonderland

Devon Gilfillian ushers in the holiday season with an infectious, soulful take on Winter Wonderland. Download it here!

“I decided to cover ‘Winter Wonderland’ because it takes me back to being a kid in Philly, watching inches upon inches of snow fall to the ground and praying for those three extra snow days to be added to Christmas break,” explains Gilfillian. “It takes me back to Pops making silver dollar pancakes on Christmas morning, and singing Bing Crosby’s version of this tune. I wanted to hold on to the nostalgia I feel from this song but also put a modern soul spin to it.”

Hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the most exciting young artists in Nashville’s burgeoning soul scene, Gilfillian will close out 2018 with a December 6 show at Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, VA, where he will open for Mavis Staples, and a performance at Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville.

He will join Brothers Osborne on the road next spring. The run kicks off on March 21 at The Fillmore in New Orleans and includes an April 3 show at The Novo in Los Angeles. Gilfillian will also perform at the 2019 Shakey Knees Festival in Atlanta. See below for itinerary. Tickets are on sale HERE.

Winter Wonderland follows the singles Truth, High. and Troublemaker. Troublemaker, which was praised by Rolling Stone as a raucous heaping of swampy soul and rock, was heard during 2018 NFL Draft programming/advertising. Gilfillian performed the national anthem before Round 1 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Gilfillian, who is featured in the Frye Americana Roots campaign and was recently named as a Southwest Airlines “Artist on the Rise,” grew up outside Philadelphia and moved to Nashville to pursue music full-time. In 2016, he released his debut EP, which NPR Music said, “captures his exuberance and musical openness, setting the stage for what promises to be a brilliant career.” Gilfillian is currently working on his full-length debut.
