The cooking school's team of cooking instructors and chefs work diligently to instill a love of cooking in students of all ages. Inside the Kids’ Kitchen, children ages 3 to 6, assisted by their parents and helped along by friendly instructors, prepare healthy, kid-friendly fare. As they work through recipes, the Future Chefs class participants also learn kitchen essentials such as measuring skills, pot and pan protocol, and how to operate small appliances. During adult classes, adult students roll up their sleeves and dive into multipart recipes, from a Provençal-style zucchini and greens torte to sweet-potato casserole. Adult students can choose from hands-on and demonstration-style classes, and the cooking school's chefs and instructors keep household menus fresh by leading new classes every three months. In addition to taking traditional cooking classes, grown-up students can also improve their eating habits with healthy lifestyle classes. Taught by registered dietitians, the classes cover food's impact on current health issues, and prepare students to make the good dietary decisions that will stay with them for the rest of their long, wellness-filled lives.

Mayer Bros. Cider Mill founder Jacob Mayer first squeezed juice from apples in 1852. Local farmers brought baskets of their apples to his mill, and he sent them on their way with jars of cider. Jacob passed his mill on to his son, John, who started brewing hard cider in 1936 by fermenting the fruits of apple trees that he watered with whiskey. Today, Jacob’s fourth-generation heir—also named John—carries on his forebears’ tradition in the same rustic building, painted in the dusky crimson hue of a Red Delicious apple.

Many autumns have passed since that barn was raised, but each year is more or less the same: a stream of visitors flocks to the mill for apple fritters, donuts, and jugs of flash-pasteurized apple cider. Guests can also purchase pies, seasonal cheeses, and apple juice made as Mother Nature intended—without any sweeteners or additives.

Spoth's Farm Market's greenhouse and produce stand is truly a family affair. Opened as a front-yard stand in 1951 by the late Ed “Red” Spoth, the business has expanded into two large plots of land in Clarence and a year-round retail store stocked with gardening supplies, fertilizers, and holiday decor. Today, Red’s sons Dave and Ed carry on the family business with help from their own sons, supplying customers with edibles harvested at the peak of their flavor and a hearty selection of decorative plants, trees, and shrubs.

Though the eponymous Johnny Tiranno no longer runs Johnny’s Meats, his legacy lives on in the specialty shop’s italian sausage recipes. Mike, Johnny’s stepson and the current owner, still makes the links and patties with his stepfather’s special blend of high-quality meat, imported cheeses, and spices, which first delighted palates in 1946. The meat supplier stocks more than sausages, however. The display cases also house juicy steaks, chicken cutlets, lamb, and seafood, mostly imported from the Midwest. For something to complement these high-quality meats, customers can browse assorted side dishes, such as twice-baked potatoes, verdant salads, and cheeses.

Vietnamese-born Tai Truong emigrated to the United States and worked his way up in the restaurant business until he became co-owner and chef at Saigon Cafe. Gayot describes the restaurant’s menu as “a refreshing and tasteful array of pan-Asian classics,” including grilled duck with tamarind and catfish in a spicy caramel sauce. Green, red, and mango curries envelop pieces of chicken, and vibrantly-hued broccoli and carrots pop against the bong cai’s brown sauce.

Meghan Jones had long been intrigued by the art and science of fitness—she earned her bachelor's degree in dance and exercise physiology—but it took personal experience to pique her interest in injury prevention. While recovering from a major car accident, she began to research therapeutic exercise methods, and eventually found her way to the Gyrotonic system's rehabilitating benefits. Her studies led her across the country, studying under Gyrotonic's creator, Juliu Horvath, along the way. Soon, she became a certified Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor.
