With the temperatures dropping and daylight becoming scarcer, it’s clear that the fall season is in full swing. Especially here in Boston & New England, fall is seen as special by many for the dramatic change that it manifests, whether the changing colors of the leaves – or in the case of today’s blog – a change in seasonal tastes!

Mushrooms are not only a staple food commonly seen in the cooking that we do here at Strega, but as it turns out, they are best enjoyed during the fall months! Mushrooms can be seen in a multitude of dishes – from pasta and pizza dishes to popular meals such as Chicken Marsala and other ones that feature meat cutlets. Excellent for an array of savory meals, consider enjoying fresh mushrooms this fall.
When you think of popular foods during the fall season, it’s likely that apples will come to mind at some point. While apples themselves are enjoyed by many during the fall season, apple picking is worthy of being mentioned, as it remains one of the most popular and beloved falltime activities. Apples are best incorporated into sweeter items such as pies, turnovers, donuts, and other baked goods. This is also not to mention cider, which is incredibly popular during the fall months and can be served chilled, at room temperature, or hot.
Each and every year when fall rolls around, there seems to be a recurring craze around the pumpkin flavor, especially the pumpkin spice variety, which can be found in all sorts of foods from espress0-based drinks to baked goods. Classics of the fall season include pumpkin pie, which is commonly enjoyed at Thanksgiving.
