FALL/WINTER 2014 • FLOURISH 25 Home Grown in Marin. Everyday fresh and crafted goods are selected with you in mind from the fi nest artisans in Northern and Central California. United introduces our local vendors that with you make Healthy Choices for you and your family. Pie making has always been a tradition in my family. Our recipes were passed down from my great grandmother, to my nana and then to my mom, Mamie, who taught me how to make their delicious New England pies. Whether I'm making our McIntosh apple pie, or our whipped pumpkin with molasses and brown sugar or our sweet and tart strawberry rhubarb, I'm always reminded of my wonderful family gatherings in New Hampshire. Two years ago I decided to bring a little taste of New England to the West Coast and United Market was the fi rst grocer to carry my pies! Mamie's Pies are unbaked and frozen so you just pop them in the oven right from the freezer. Now you're ready to enjoy the aroma and taste of a fresh baked New England pie right at home! – Kara Romanik Local Choices. LOCAL WINE LOCAL DESSERTS Bordenave's history began in 1918, when Frank Bordenave arrived in the United States from France where he worked as a baker. Frank opened a bakery that was then called Parisian on B Street in San Rafael. In 1928 Frank moved his bakery to 1553 Fourth Street, close to where it resides at 1512 Fourth Street. During the Depression, Frank decided that he would shift his focus from baking cakes and pastries to specializing in baking quality bread products. His bread was so delicious that it soon became his main product. He used his artistic ability as a pastry chef and began to create a very large variety of different kinds of breads. This wide selection of bread can still be found at Bordenave's today. – Fred Radwan LOCAL BAKERY Coming from fi ve generations of California vintners, it's no surprise that Joel became a wine and food entrepreneur. Born in Napa Valley and raised in the Sierra Foothills where his parents started Montevina Winery, Joel later moved to Carmel and upon graduat- ing high school went to work for Kenwood Winery in Sonoma Country. Since our start in 1996, we have selected the best fruit from growing regions in California and Oregon to create wines that make for more bal- anced, clean, complex, elegant wines. We are geared towards continuing to give our cus- tomers incredible wines at great prices that are expressive and food-friendly. We hope you enjoy our wines and will let us know what you think. www.gottwines.com – Joel Gott
