Those of you who know me, know that I’m a big fan of these next few months. Autumn is my favorite time of year for food! However, the next two months of September and October are somewhat odd for us in that while the rest of the country is about to experience the full bounty of the fall harvest as temperatures start to cool off, we here in Arizona will be caught in between the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season, with a still very warm climate for the next several weeks.
What this means from a food standpoint, is that our local growers and suppliers will still be able to provide us with much of the traditional fare that we have become used to over the summer. So items like peaches, plums and grapefruits are still available in great supply and are still very ripe and fresh! However, we will also start to see some of the early harvest that we associate with the fall season like several varieties of winter squash, fresh passion fruit, tangerines and tomatillos will be great in the months ahead.
After this interesting culinary transitional period, we’ll move full speed into the cuisine of late fall and early winter, which is the absolute best time to be a foodie!!!
For now, I hope that you will enjoy our selections for the early fall season. I think you’ll find that there is a little something for all occasions in this collection of menus and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as we enjoy preparing them!
Thanks to all of you for your continued business and support. The whole team at Seasons Gourmet Catering appreciates you and we look forward to serving you in the days and weeks ahead!
All the best,
