Autumn has arrived: here is a tasty recipe to Help You Celebrate the First Day of Fall!
The sights, sounds and smells of fall stir the soul, but delight is mixed with melancholy. Autumn can mean a sort of sadness which is not entirely unwelcome; a sort of sober, slowing-down of the spirit, leaving us much given to reflection. Indeed for anyone capable of looking up from their screen, for anyone in the slightest way alive to the rhythms of the natural world and its sights and sounds and smells, autumn has a peculiar personality of its own which is powerfully attractive. This is a season brimming with the highest level gastronomy, amidst the colours of the grape harvest and noble flavours. Mushrooms, truffles and chestnuts: the fruits of Autumn are venerated and special, like all Italian recipes which exploit abundant quality. I’ll give you a fantastic surf and turf recipe that combines the rich flavors of prawns and mushrooms.
