All About Fall!

Megan BaylonComment

We are absolutely loving all these autumnal flavors here at Taste of Pace! Trumpet squash, butternut squash, kabocha squash... if it's a squash, we've got our hands on it.

Pictured above is our dinner with Lincoln Cars with Weiser Farms! Our spread of butternut squash fritters and beet leek risotto cakes is the epitome of cozy fall sweater-weather. 

When we catered this Kate Spade Dinner Party, we said, "move over pumpkin spiced latte!" Our pumpkin mousse topped with chai whipped cream and peptia cookie crumble is our go-to fall dessert.

And to celebrate all these delectable fall flavors, check out Chef Pace's pumpkin gnudi recipe!
