Fall Traditions Honor Ancestors With Food & Wine – Los Altos Town Crier | Directory Mayhem

In the US, we call fall “fall.” It is the falling of the leaves from the trees that has earned the transitional period its aptly literal name. The act of trees losing their leaves makes the season one of loss in nature.

As I walk along the path by my house, I marvel at how nature uses its losses. The now falling leaves become part of the earth and bring the new growth of spring. Unharvested produce, heavy in maturity, will fall to the ground and resow. Squirrels and birds are busy stowing away fallen nuts and seeds to feed themselves through the winter.







This pasta dish is loaded with salty, sweet, tangy and fresh flavors that are made even more delightful with a glass of Sonoma County Pinot Noir.
