The Time is Ripe!Aug 22nd, 2012 | By NEF staff | Category: Uncategorized
Getting to experience four distinct seasons is one of the best perks of living in the Northeast. Spring seems so amazingly green after the stark white of winter snows. Summer at the coast is a time-honored tradition. Watching the first flakes of snow fall while you begin your holiday shopping really gets you in the festive mood. But the season most affiliated with New England is the fall; this is OUR time of year. People travel from all over to see our canopy of glorious greens, yellows, reds and oranges and experience our true leaf-peeping heaven.
Here at Northeast FLAVOR, we tried to capture the essence of autumn in this latest issue. The Grilled Corn Pizza is the perfect recipe to capitalize on the fall harvest of sweet, delicious corn. We cruise (and snack) our way along the delectable Vermont Cheese Trail, and head on down to the North Fork of Long Island to experience the booming but bucolic wine culture flourishing there.
We rock the kitchen with the Food Network darling Anne Burrell, and head out to forage mushrooms with Boston Harbor Hotel’s award-winning chef, Daniel Bruce. We go up country for the Maine potato harvest, and stay home to enjoy Reisling and revisit vodka.
Don’t head out to the big game without reading our review of cool tailgating products, or start your holiday baking without learning tricks of the trade from the award-winning bakeries in our book and blog review section. Our hearty granola recipes will get you going on a crisp morning, and our baked beans and brown bread recipes are the perfect way to settle in when you get home.
So get out there and revel in the breathtaking beauty that is fall in New England, and be sure to enjoy all the harvest has to offer!
