Fresh Market Dining

September 23rd, 2008

As we approach October, I am reminded how much my grandfather loved the month, a month he simply called “golden” not only for its fall foliage but for its abundant squash—acorn, butternut, pumpkin—you name it, we harvested it. While some of you may not be as inclined to stock on the squash bounty as I am, there are plenty of other great food buys at area farmers’ markets. (In fact, the Dane County Farmers’ Market will continue on the Capitol Square until November 8).

In order to inspire your market forage, I have selected a few titles from Steenbock’s cookbook collection for your consideration (do consult with librarians for availability of these titles and for any assistance locating related items):
