Today is the first day of winter, which is the shortest day of the year. There have also been snowstorms across North America this weekend so it really looks like winter in a lot of places. For seasonal eaters in the north, winter certainly has its challenges but it also has a lot of good points. Cozy dinners by the fire, hearty and rustic meals, hot chocolate and braises are just a few of the things we can enjoy in the coming months. So check back often as I explore what we can do with seasonal ingredients this winter. And before you know it, it will be spring again!
I’d also like to extend seasons greetings to my Jewish friends as you celebrate the first night of Hanukkah.
Bon Appétit and Happy Holidays to everyone!
