Fall in the Kitchen – The Best Fruits and Vegetables Autumn Has to Offer

Looking to add more fruits and veggies to your cooking this fall? Let A Taste of the World Kosher Catering spice up your season with these autumnal favorites. You might be surprised by how versatile each dish is – and how much you’ll enjoy it.


Would it really be fall if you weren’t cooking with pumpkin? This seasonal favorite seems to be everywhere in stores during this time of year, but that doesn’t mean every dish featuring pumpkin is a touchdown. Go light on the spice for main dishes, focusing instead on the delicious richness that pumpkin offers to soups, pasta dishes, and baked goods. Don’t forget about the seeds, either! Pumpkin seeds are perfect to toss into salad or snack mixes for wholesome, delicious energy and crunch.  Try our delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cake for gatherings with friends and family.


Everyone loves apple in the fall. From apple cider to candied apples and everything in between, apples usually get the sweet and spicy treatment, this time of year. However, there are many wonderful ways to work apples into savory dishes as well. Consider it paired with salad greens, braised with meat, or made into compotes for delicious dishes your diners might never have expected to love.

Butternut Squash

Squash is wonderful in fall. Offering the smooth, yet hearty texture that diners delight in, squash has become even more popular in recent years as traditional carbs go out of style and vegetable carbohydrates come into vogue. Butternut squash has always been delicious, though. Try it pureed in place of potatoes, roasted and sauced as a main dish, or chopped into a hash with other fall vegetables.


Need more greens in your diet and dishes? Choose arugula’s scrumptious, peppery flavor for interesting salads and sandwiches all fall and winter long. While it’s available worldwide throughout the year, autumn is one of the best times of year to add this to your diet.


The tart, sweet taste of cranberries may conjure up images of Thanksgiving, but they’re great throughout the cooler weather seasons. When you choose cranberries for savory dishes, you can bring meat to life, create fabulous sauces, and add interest to salads.
