Sweet Escape: Fall Flavors (A Culinary Retreat)

We're doing it again!

After the amazing success of my first Sweet Escape culinary retreat earlier this summer, I decided to team up with the folks at Good Commons in Vermont to host a delicious Fall-themed getaway in October 2013.

Join us for a gorgeous autumn weekend of gourmet meals, cooking workshops, cocktail and wine tastings, apple picking, visits to a local brewery, hay rides, and more. Chef Matthew Wexler will also be joining us this time to prepare an incredible tasting dinner on Friday evening.

There are limited spots available, and (just like last time!) this WILL sell out, so reserve your all-inclusive ticket today.

Packing Collage

I'm heading to Mexico for a few days to cover the Cancun-Riviera Maya Food & Wine Festival

It's going to be five full days of feasting--I can't wait to share it all with you!

I'm usually a terrible packer, leaving it until the absolute last possible second, so this time I decided to create a little packing collage on Polyvore, just the same way I would plan for a party. This provided me with a little inspiration for a packing "theme" and made it possible for me to streamline while still bringing everything I need.

For this trip, I'm going with a palate of navy, red, coral, and gold, with brown leather accessories (and my cowboy hat, of course!).

I'll be sure to share pictures and delicious recipes with you when I get back from the trip!

Hi lovelies! I prepared a cozy Latin spice roast chicken (with extra-crispy skin), spicy Argentine chimichurri, and caramelized roasted rutabaga to enjoy for dinner tonight while watching the premiere of the new ABC show The TASTE.

Will you be watching?

Dessert will be a sliced of Nigella's Flourless Clementine cake (which I posted on my food blog, Always Order Dessert). That's where I write and share recipes daily so be sure to hop on over and check it out if you haven't yet!

Remember you can follow me on Twitter (@nandita) and on Facebook. Come by and say hello!
