Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year. I love the changing colors of the trees, the crisp evening air and the kick off of soccer season. But most of all, fall of is full of the best food and flavors like apple pie, pumpkin muffins and cranberry sauce.
The taste of fruits and vegetables are the most fresh when they are in season and the fall harvest does not disappoint with options. Favorites like sweet potatoes, pomegranates, pears, arugula, cauliflower, grapes, celery, peppers and kale are just some of the produce harvested in the late summer and fall season. Classics like apples and squash are a symbol for the season itself.
It’s fun to join in on the fall harvest spirit. Things like apple picking, hay rides and pumpkin patches are a simple way to celebrate fall and support the seasonal harvest. Even I get really into it… (c’mon, how cute is that tiny apple?!)
On Tuesday the Valley Café celebrates the fall harvest that has provided our meals all semester. The event will be an acknowledgement of locally grown food and also fresh and flavorful seasonal food. It only seems appropriate to end the Valley Café semester with a menu that brings the whole experience together. On Tuesday we’ll taste the seasonal favorites we have enjoyed all semester while continuing to thank the many local farmers who have grown for us this fall.
Pumpkin, squash, apples and potatoes will be overflowing at the Valley Café on Tuesday. Come join for the last event of the semester in the Cabaret from 11:30 to 1:30!
