Autumn has officially arrived! It is the perfect time to put on those sweaters, watch the leaves change, and enjoy the harvests of fall. There are so many culinary treats to look forward to during fall: Oyster Season, OctoberFest, Apple Cider Donuts, and anything to do with pumpkin! Usually around this time we start making our delicious Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies. This year, we are trying out a new fall cookie–Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Spiced Glaze! Chocolate Gingerbread devotees, don’t fret! They will be back in a few weeks as well.
We have also started making Pumpkin Waffles for breakfast here at the Inn so it’s safe to say that we have a case of pumpkin fever. Lots of local restaurants are getting into the spirit as well! If you are looking some amazing seasonal baked goods look no further than Guglhupf Bakery has officially started their Pumpkin Muffin season!
On the savory side of things we have found the perfect way to warm up after a cool fall day at Geer St. Gardens : Pumpkin Soup with Sage Creme Fraiche & Chile Oil. Hungry yet?
From shopping at the Durham Farmer’s Market to apple picking, we hope you get a chance to stay with us this fall and experience all of the great seasonal food and activities we have in Durham!
