GEV Magazine’s Summer Issue 12.0

Eileen Solis RogersIn this Issue


Summer is that time of year when people make time to relax and get doses of vitamin C by soaking up the heat of the sun.  As GEV Magazine’s new Managing Editor, I am pleased to become part of this exciting summer issue as it is sizzling with everything summer including the latest in swimwear, recipes for light and summery bites as well as summer concert series.

GEV’s featured cover celebrity chef Marisa Churchill epitomizes summer with her Skinny Sexy and Scrumptious.   Our collaboration with Chef Marisa on the day of the photo shoot was a win-win for both Chef Marisa and the GEV team.  Chef Marisa’s convivial personality made it so enjoyable for a summer day’s work.  We were all witnesses to her transformation from a toque-sporting gal to a Greek Goddess.  She amazed us with her ability to have a relationship with the camera that not only captured her beauty but the inner diva in her as well.  We are still trying to determine whether Marisa Churchill is a Top Chef or a Top Model.  You be the judge.

Food and Wine Pairings have become mainstream in today’s culinary experience.  I am an advocate for this process as it is a fusing of ideas and creativity for both the chef and wine expert.  A lot of work goes on behind the creation of the recommendations for food and wine pairings and the passion of both talents emerge.  A third dimension is added bringing in music to the forefront of that experience.  The emerging trend is that food is no longer an afterthought at concerts; rather, food and wine in combination with the live musical performance is a magical conglomeration highly worth experiencing.  We truly believe that blending music with lifestyles of chefs, vintners and restauranteurs elevates the experience to a level beyond measure.

There’s plenty more to explore in these pages.  Not to be missed is our feature on New Zealand’s Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant lending insight into New Zealand’s wine industry.  Also our Haute Summer Designs featuring Ana Cecilia Ortega, Rebecca Cahua, Jesus Romero, Mia Marcelle, Purpuratta NYC, Melibeach and Heathers & Harlots.  Start turning the pages now!
