Artist Burt Levitsky and Aquarius chef Ken Drew profiled in Summer 2018 SANTA CRUZ STYLE

While Surrealism outraged society generations ago, today it’s the realists who are misunderstood. I recently discovered this while interviewing legendary Santa Cruz painter Burt Levitsky. Levitsky’s dedication to his craft can be downright death-defying, and his scenes will have you believing that magical realism isn’t found only in books. You can read the story on page 10 of the Summer 2018 edition of Santa Cruz Style. On page 40, you’ll meet Ken Drew, executive chef of Aquarius at Dream Inn Santa Cruz. Hotel cuisine can scare off the bravest culinary talents, but you’ll learn how Drew embraces the challenge, winning over hordes of tourists, curious locals, and loyal regulars in the process. The online edition appears here.
