Summer has officially passed and the brisk weather of autumn has arrived. For Oregonians, this isn’t necessarily bad news. Most farmer’s markets will be open for many months to come and the stands are abound with vivid autumnal hues of ginger, gold, and lichen of the many squash varieties! One of our favorites at GP Catering is the delicata! It has a natural sweetness that really comes out when roasted! The best part about this oblong, yellow and green-striped squash is you won’t even need to peel it because the skin is soft and edible! Our chefs have shared one of their favorite recipes below.
