The season of crisp sunshine and fireside evenings is also the time for setting up preserves and preparing festive food for Thanksgiving, for making pots of soup and fruit pies. The recipes in Fall Flavours offer a full range of soups, appetizers, entrees and desserts, as well as ideas for breakfast, light lunch and beverages. They make the best use of fresh ingredients, such as squash, root vegetables and seasonal fruit. All the recipes have been tested and adapted for home cooking.
Accompanying the text are beautiful photographs of many of the featured dishes as prepared by the chefs and the authors themselves, and other images of fall and its bounty.
