Though sunshine continues to reign during the day, a new season is beginning to take hold, with crisp, clear mornings, chilly evenings and a wealth of new produce options—from lovely ripe pears and bright carrots to golden Chanterelle mushrooms. Thus, this week’s box embraces the crisp, soulful flavors of fall as they converge with late summer favorites like corn and tomatoes, mixing these seasonal ingredients with rustic semolina pasta, Gruyère cheese bread and a light, fresh Austrian white wine.
