Changing of the Seasons

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” at least to me.  I love the fall,  I love autumn… Here in Sonoma County we are often just beginning to get the best of the local farms – the tomatoes and peppers - and the days are hot (this week really hot) but the evenings cool off to a beautiful temp with clear sky for star gazing.

My mind starts thinking of soups and stews, pumpkins and pomegranates.  I look forward to a ride out to Sebastopol to my favorite pumpkin patch to get a great variety of pumpkins and gourds to decorate our front step for Fall.

I’ll have a recipe later this week for the ratatouille that I'm making for the Taste of Petaluma this Saturday.  Look for us at the Barry Singer Gallery.  I have the pleasure of pairing up with Three Ox Farms and all of their great produce. They sent me this list of incredible items and I felt like a kid in a candy store choosing whatever I wanted.  So far I have planned a Pepper and Squash Ratatouille with White Truffle Oil, a Chioggia Beet Salad, and Quick Pickled Vegetables with carrots, beans and cucumbers.  Can you say "yum".

Stop by I’ll see you there
