Autumn Farm Fresh 2006
October 2006



Tables laden with pumpkins fill the Union Square Greenmarket, ousting the last of the summer favorites in favor of more robust fall crops: apples, turnips, eggplant and hardier greens, to name a few. On menus across the country, chefs are doing the same, trading tomato varietals for apples, soft squash for hard. Pastry Chef Caitlin Kelly of Vidalia in DC celebrates the season with 4 incarnations of apples on a single plate. Across from The White House, Chef Michael Harr features peak of the season turnips in a pure-flavored gateau at Butterfield 9. Farther south, Chef Scott Boswell of Stella! in New Orleans stuffs eggplants with a hearty crab and Parmagiano gratin, and lacquers broccoli rabe with a sesame-soy glaze.
