Apple & Pumpkin Recipes

Originally published in the Sept/Oct issue of Northshore magazine.

I’m a big fan of pumpkins and apples in anything, which is why I decided to do this food feature for the Fall issue of Northshore magazine. The resulting recipes – all collected from North Shore chefs, bakers and bartenders – are mouth-watering. So if you’re wondering what to make with that bag of freshly-picked apples or need an inspiring dish for Thanksgiving, check out the full print article with amazing recipes here.

Of course, being primarily a cocktail writer, I had to add this yummy Harvest Martini from the Wild Horse Café in Beverly:

Harvest Martini

Co-owner Matt Blanchard’s Inspiration: “This drink originated years ago for a wedding I was catering.  It was a fall wedding and the bride wanted a seasonal martini and this is what we came up with.  It’s nice and light and not too sweet.  Since its first use it’s been featured at several other fall weddings and was often seen in the fall winter months at 15 Walnut when I worked there.  Now you’ll see it at the Wild Horse.”

2oz vodka
1oz Pama
1oz apple cider
Splash of Prosecco

Add vodka, Pama, and cider in shaker.  Shake until nice and cold.  Pour in to a cinnamon sugar rimmed martini glass. Then top with a splash of Prosecco.
