This month brings out the best of root vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower, winter squash, hearty greens, and pumpkins. You’ll also find a variety of greens like mustard, collard, kale and chard.
Favorite fruits include apples, pears, and quince, as well as early season citrus.
The cold winter wind and short, dark days put us in the mood for a warm and hearty meal. Take advantage of the season’s star root vegetables like carrots, potatoes, onions and turnips and create a roasted root vegetable medley to complement your meal.
For the entree, feature a succulent roast that yields to the fork. A bright salad of peppery greens with a hazelnut vinaigrette would be a light and easy starter for meal. And for dessert? We like a warm caramel apple cobbler with crème anglaise. Happy Eating!

Whatever your holiday season holds in store, best wishes to you and your family.
Recipe of the Month
Try this winter warming Red Curry and Butternut Squash Soup this holiday season. Jeremy Niehuss created this crowd-pleaser a few years back and we still get requests for the recipe. We wanted to share it with you too.

If you’d like to give the gift of a specific class, consider giving a series instead. Your friends and family will be delighted by the Hands on Basic Foundation Series, which incorporates recipes, kitchen tips and basic skills in an efficient and entertaining format. The class series will be held once a week for 6 weeks beginning January 8th. Do you have a future chef in the family? If so, perhaps the Culinary Boot Camp would be the ideal gift for him or her. Beginning January 14, the “camp” will cover everything necessary to create show-stopping meals of restaurant quality.
