The arrival of fall brings with it some of our favorite produce of the year. Butternut squash, pumpkin, apples, pears, and wild mushrooms are at the most flavorful and abundant throughout the autumn months. The comforting, warming flavors of these foods are perfectly suited for warming stews, soups, and hearty, carbohydrate-rich dishes, which is exactly what we’re craving on these cooler, darker days.
You should definitely not miss out on the opportunity to make the most of all these beautiful fruits and vegetables, whether you choose to use them in an appetizer, entrée, or dessert. Don’t skip a single opportunity to feast on all of the season’s tastiest treats — it’s important that every dinner party in autumn revolves around your favorite farmers market finds.
Impress your guests with the most delicious, seasonal dishes, which can be perfect for vegetarians, pescatarians, meat-eaters, and sugar-addicts. Our favorite dinner party meals range from a French-inspired autumn fish stew, to vivid beet and ricotta gnocchi, to slow-cooker pork with apple sauerkraut, and always end with a sweet dessert filled with the ripest apples and pears. Read on to discover our most-loved dinner party dishes which really do make the most of fall’s produce.
