Ready for Fall

Posted on: Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The first day of Fall means we're gearing up for shorter days, cooler nights, crazy colorful foliage, cozy sweaters, and a whole new palette of comforting dishes. We collected a few of our past recipes and highlighted our favorites based on the “country mouse” Kara and the “city mouse” Marni. We hope these recipes will get you into the spirit!
Marni: My palette tends to go towards iconic fall flavors of cinnamon, sweet apples, and touches of savory. Surrounded by unassuming craft cocktail bars in Central Square, I enjoy dabbling in the seasonal concoctions and recreating my own. While most might pair a cocktail with cheese or crackers, I sometimes find myself with a plate of Red Apple Farm’s apple cider donuts instead. 

If apple cider donuts don’t suffice, I often add funky flares to classic savory dishes. Strolling through the city, I am often greeted by wafting aromas from neighboring pizza spots and markets which inspired my next favorite. 

Kara: I’m attracted to dishes inspired by the warm, rich colors of the season. While I do love the subdued hues of fallen leaves, I like the pops of vibrant greens, funny gourds, and punchy peppers. I enjoy sweets but love the added tang- whether from a pop of citrus, or jolt of ginger, all melding in a warm cauldron. 

The soup and salad combination is a match made, especially in autumn. To my seasonal salad, toss together a bunch of textures and flavors with pops of fresh-picked treasures from my local farmer’s market.

While Marni loves apple cider donuts, I’m a Candy Corn pumpkin fanatic. However, we both agree that our absolute favorite Twin Tastes sweet incorporates another fall (or anytime) favorite, Ryan & Wood’s Folly Cove Rum.
