In Season

Winter has two vastly different sides: one that is cruel and ruthless, and one that fills our souls with warmth, light, family and good food. While winter does wear us down, it also allows for more time inside—particularly in the kitchen.

Farmers markets have closed down for the season and fields lay barren, waiting for spring. The bounty has been halted. It is a time to hunker down, when we are reduced to shivering bundles dependent on scalding beverages and central heating. We combat winter’s bitterness with the bounties we have stored up from warmer, more generous months. Hot comfort food keeps us surfaced—soup, potpies, casseroles, warm cereal—anything to drive the cold from our bones and our kitchens.
