Every Season in New England brings with it a new perspective. Our mindset changes, our clothes change, light changes and our food inevitably follows suit.
“Autumn Begins” that is what the little square on my calendar says. I rather like that term best, more so than ‘First Day Of’ or the like. It has a gentler connotation. A ‘rolling into’ instead of a definitive start. And so New England weather really makes its most flashy attempt to win the hearts of its residents this season. It got me long ago, and yet I am still amazed at the sensation I get from the first inhale of a perfect fall day. It never disappoints. September marks the beginning of the rolling into. A gentle mixing of summer and fall will find its way into our kitchen and onto your plate.
