Fall Harvest

 "Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly." - M.K. Fisher 
We tend to take for granted the experience of sharing food with our loved ones. So why not slow down and enjoy a classic dinner party at home, it's a simple party that doesn't  require to much planning beyond the menu. With food as the focus, this kind of party is all about the experience of eating and making a meal important. 

October and November are the perfect time to host a little get together for your closest friends and family before everything gets hectic in December, and you just cant find the time. Autumn is a season of change, the leaves are falling and new fruits and vegetables are coming into season. So theming your menu around the fall harvest is a wonderful way to celebrate the new season!

Weather you enjoy your meal searved family style, or have each coarse served  we have
some wonderful fall menu items in store. Like our Poached Pear Salad with a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette, or our creamy Butternut Squash Soup for starters.

Moving on to entrees of sweet potato souffles with pecan crumbles, maple roasted carrots, roasted turkey and glazed ham galore, dinner can't come quick enough! And of course another favorite of ours is dessert (all dessert in general really) we can hardly contain our excitement for pumpkin whoopie pies, pumkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin panna cotta and whatever else we can figure out how to make it pumpkin flavored! Would it be too much to have pumpkin butter with our rolls at dinner? We're gonna go with no, you can't have too much fall flavor! Of course we enjoy other seasonal flavors as well, like hazelnut, salted caramel, pear, and apple. Fall just might be our favorite time of year to eat.
