In 1971, Michael Sowers taught himself how to throw clay in a high-school art class. The classroom had a functioning pottery wheel, but the instructor didn't know how to use it, so Michael began checking out instructional books from the library to support his fledgling interest.
Ever since, he's been molding masses of clay into plates and vessels, preserving their shapes with the heat of a 2,350-degree kiln. His work is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing—subtly hued french butter dishes hold a quarter pound of butter in water, keeping it fresh for up to a month, and grater plates come equipped with a built-in shredder for garlic, ginger, parmesan cheese, or CIA documents. Sowers seals each piece with a lead-free glaze used by potters since the time of the Ming dynasty, ensuring that customers can safely send his pottery through a dishwasher or heat them in a microwave or oven.
Aided by a colorful interior and made-to-order burritos bursting with more than 20 choice fillings, KB's earned accolades from the New York Times as one of the top things to do in Sun Valley. Extra-large tortilla pockets ($8.49) dominate KB's menu with Boise burritos packing salmon, spinach and potatoes, and Ketchum burritos bundle steak, beans, rice, and guacamole. Unlike parents browsing a maternity ward, diners can pick and choose items with create-your-own burritos, drawing from a variety of stuffings such as sunflower seeds, carrots, and KB's homemade salsa. Other Mexican eats range from enchilada tacos ($4.99) to R & B salads ($6.99), which—like turtles streaking on the beach—flee the shell, favoring beds of crunchy romaine, black beans, and cabbage drizzled with cilantro-lime vinaigrette.
Slate-gray walls and eight flat-screen TVs encircle a group of simple, black tables inside McClain’s Pizzeria, allowing the chefs’ signature item to act as the eye-catching decoration. The culinary team hand-tosses dough, including a gluten-free option, each and every day. Pies are then slathered with housemade sauce and layered with a bevy of toppings, including staples such as pepperoni, green peppers, and mushrooms, and innovative treats, such as buffalo chicken, pineapple, and real Italian fedoras. Customers can order their pies in three sizes—10”, 14”, and 18”—or skip the slices all together and go for a crispy calzone. Aside from their doughy feasts, McClain’s slakes appetites with five types of sandwiches, four salads, and jumbo wings tossed in a zesty buffalo sauce and washed down by a selection of on-tap brews.
