Fresh spring vegetables, such as sugar snap peas, leeks and tender asparagus bring new life to baked pastas, creamy risottos and fluffy frittatas. In summer, the garden bounty stars in lighter fare such as braised meat dishes with diverse flavors, roasted and stir-fried seafood, stratas and enchiladas. In autumn, root vegetables take a leading role in pot roasts, gratins and rustic tarts, while classic comfort foods, such as meatloaf and baked ziti with sausage, are back-to-school favorites. Rich and savory dishes like meat pies, fall-off-the-bone lamb tagines, spicy curries, herbed cassoulets, and warming stews feed a crowd and keep winter’s chill away.
