Celebrate the arrival of autumn with the October issue of Taste of the South. There are plenty of simple family suppers and sides for easy weeknight cooking, but we’re also serving up new cobblers and crisps for the season, as well as new takes on apple pie and an epic Diwali spread courtesy of celebrity Chef Maneet Chauhan. And it wouldn’t be fall without a few scrumptious pumpkin recipes. Plus, there’s a fascinating glimpse into the life of fourth-generation Virginia peanut farmer Elisha Barnes and a handful of the South’s best soda fountains to discover. So, while the cool fall breeze wafts into your kitchen, let this delicious issue be your guide to ushering in this special time of year.
