Today is August 31, 2011, and the summer season is officially coming to a close. Colleges and schools are back in session, and we are approaching the fall season.

I must admit that Autumn has always been my favorite season! I love the stunning changes that occur in deciduous trees with the crisp temperature shifts. Observing a gorgeous array of brilliant colors -- reds, oranges, golds, browns can definitely light one's spirit!

Apple picking has always been a fun activity with family and friends. The right orchard, with apple-cider donuts and a blue grass band, sunshine, have always contributed to a great experience. Coming back with amazing apples, to bake and cook is my forte! Needless to say, I am looking forward to this.

I will publish classes teaching how to make a proper pie crust, pate brisee (short crust) and pate sucree (sweet pie crust). The technique of creating a proper crust will ensure a better pastry!
I look forward to baking with you this fall!

A beautiful day today, and my tomatoes stand tall and healthy!

I have spoken with several people about taking a Savory Green cooking class. We are still in the "prime season" for local produce in Massachusetts, so your class awaits you and your friends! Savory Green supports a seasonal menu, with delicious foods to be created in every season. Let's take advantage of summer's robust offerings, and enjoy great food, fun and super instruction!
New classes will be posted within the next week but to personalize your class, email Chef Tracy @ I look forward to cooking green with you!

Tropical Storm Irene

I secured my beautiful Heirloom tomatoes, saving them from being blown away to Oz!

I am grateful that Irene was a tropical storm and not a hurricane! I put much care into growing fresh herbs and tomatoes, and thankfully they stand tall!
