Season to Season Recipes

Swinging from cloudy and drippy to sunny and (super) crisp, the weather has us—and the gardens—toeing the line between summer and fall. Luckily, that also means that we are enjoying produce from both seasons as summery favorites like peppers, cucumbers and corn continue to delight alongside new offerings like the buttery Chanterelle mushrooms that pair beautifully with this week’s cozy pappardelle pasta. Also included: Italian Rustica bread, farm-fresh eggs and a beautiful French Rosé so you can toast to whatever season is at hand today.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
