The Top Foods to Eat This Fall

Flavorful Fall Event Catering

event catering bay areaHere at Handheld Catering, we are gearing up for fall flavors and comfort food. Fall is the start of our holiday eating season. Even now, before the holidays kick off, pumpkin, squash, pears, cranberries, and other flavors are all in season and are ready to be a part of your next great meal. Our team of event caterers in Palo Alto has been working on fall inspired recipes sure to get your taste buds tingling:

Butternut squash. Festive and quintessentially fall, butternut squash has a great nutty flavor perfect for savory dishes. Handheld’s winter squash cakes use butternut squash, seasonal vegetables, and sage aioli for a great, savory fall flavor.

Pumpkin. Clearly the queen of fall, pumpkins make any dish instantly seasonal. Pumpkin offers a host of health benefits like antioxidants and Vitamin A, making it a great ingredient to incorporate into your culinary repertoire. If you’re feeling adventurous, skip the canned stuff and try making this year’s pumpkin pie from scratch!

Pear. This versatile fruit can transform anything from savory dishes to cocktails. Handheld Catering uses pears in our Pork and Poached Pear Fennel Crostini; the mix of spicy pork and sweet pear chutney makes this the perfect fall appetizer.

Cranberries. Whether you like them dried, canned, or juiced, cranberries are everywhere. While we have access to them all year round, fresh cranberries are usually available from October to November in your local produce market.
