What is seasonal eating? Eating seasonally means you are eating the freshest local food. It's purchasing and consuming the fruits and vegetables that are locally grown at their prime time of harvest. (It's extra special if it's grown in your own garden.) The produce will be simply delicious and fresh because it's picked when it's at its best.
There’s no cozier time than fall than to gather your friends, light a fire, and enjoy some easy entertaining... And after a day of apple picking or searching for the perfect pumpkin in the crisp outdoors, a simmering pot of butternut squash soup and a generous serving of warm bread will certainly help to ward off the autumn chill.
Summer is made for entertaining—and it should be easy. The fresh flavors of local produce are ripe for the picking and don’t need much enhancement, making meal prep simple. Bring everything outdoors for a magical setting in the cool New Jersey nights lit up by dancing fireflies.
The holidays are a time for socializing, and winter cocktails are very much a part of it. Authors of Shake—A New Perspective on Cocktails, Eric Prum and Josh Williams, write that "cocktails should be fun, simple and social," and their book is full of cocktail crafting recipes that are simply perfect for sharing.
There are many classic cocktails but none more so than the quintessential Old Fashioned. Both the traditional and modern versions are enjoying more than a moment—and for good reason.
