Autumn is Beautiful
My local green market is at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, and today I stopped in to say hello to Cathy of NotEatingOutInNewYork who was teaching folks walking by how to make a simple risotto. It smelled wonderful. Maybe she'll share the recipe with us.
While I was there I was overwhelmed by the variety of pumpkins, squash and gourds that our local farmers are growing this year. Here is one of my favorite displays.

Here are a few of my recent Recipe Tweets. A tasty recipe in 140 characters or less.

I wanted to focus more on the Vice Presidential Debate than dinner so whipped this up.

Here's some food news that disturbed me.
Cadbury recalls Chinese-made chocolates. What is up with China? When is poisoning folks a great business model?

Please let me know if you try any of these recipes. Thanks guys. Love the comments. Follow me on Twitter if you like to eat as much as I do.

Nice to see you yesterday -- thanks for coming by, and for the mention! I wonder if pumpkins are in store for your next project. (I posted the risotto recipe.)

Those pumpkins were so beautiful! We will see. Maybe soup or pie.

The problem isn't Cadbury and the problem isn't in North America. The problem was with Chinese milk, which was tainted with melamine. Cadbury was very responsible at their end, issuing a recall when they learned of the problem. That chocolate was distributed only around the Pacific Rim.
