It's Here!! :)

It's safe to say that we can welcome Fall to The Colby Hill Inn and the quaint town of Henniker, NH. I personally welcome the warm and heartier flavors of the fall harvest with open arms (and walk-in coolers). The cool crisp nights and warm days help to ripen heirloom apples, parsnips, squashes, celery root, and the remaining list of the fall bounty. I wait all year for these three months that prepare us for the dreadfully long NH winter. The turning of the leaves in these months not only mean beautiful colors in the woods, but on the plates as well!

A Maine Lobster and Crab Cake is served with roasted pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, baby greens, and a vanilla and brown butter emulsion; House Smoked Haddock Chowder is laced with apple wood smoked bacon, fennel, and potatoes; Grilled Double Cut Pork Chops are served with apple and apple cider braised cabbage; and warm Local Apple Beignets (fritters) are set upon scoops of ice cream and drizzled with a butterscotch sauce, a play on warm apple pie with ice cream.

These are just a few of my personal favorite dishes on this year's fall menu. However, don't let me be bias of one dish over the next, as they all are fantastic. They wouldn't be on the menu if they weren't, but you can be the judge of that.

When you join us for your next dinner, ask for me, as I love to talk about food!

Hope to see you soon!
