PA Corporate Chef Steph's take from this week's Market Report "Good Buy"
It’s official. Fall is upon us and with it are our appetites for warm, deep flavors and earthy colors. Red and pink fruits like berries, plums, and watermelon are typically associated with Summer, but I think the best ones are happening now. Pomegranate is endlessly inspiring, with its seeds scattered across salads, dips, or piled on top of roasted beef or chicken. Those crunchy seeds offer perfect texture and acidic sweetness to any sweet or savory dish. And cranberries are gorgeous this time of year, made into reductions for cocktails or puckered in relishes. Lastly, dragon fruit with its astonishingly vibrant exterior and kiwi-like interior is surprisingly subtle in fruit plates or garnished on top of breakfast bowls like oatmeal or chia seed pudding. Celebrate the colors of love this Fall!
