Fall is my favorite time of year.
The leaves are changing colors, the air is getting crisp, and comfort foods are getting popular again. Many restaurants change their menus to reflect the weather, but there’s something warming about good home cooking when the leaves turn too.
Michigan grown ingredients are my favorite to use, and right now many are at their peak. My favorite dishes to make this time of year are hearty eats like beef stew with local potatoes, apple crumble made with Michigan apples, and homemade chicken noodle soup.
Want to get in on the local eating action too? Epicurious has a handy interactive guide. But we did the hard work for you and put the list below:
You can stop by Eastern Market during the weekend, Honeybee Market, or Randazzo’s in Detroit to stock up on these seasonal goodies. Also, be sure to check Epicurious next month for what’s in season for October.
So enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful colors of Detroit, and take time to buy local produce!
