Fashion designer and food lover Lela Rose (whose apartment is literally built for entertaining) recently hosted a Fall Harvest Dinner to support Edible Schoolyard NYC. Talented Chez Panisse alum and cookbook author David Tanis, of the new One Good Dish, handled the glam seasonal menu. It included hors d'oeuvres like endive with trout roe and mascarpone, an entrée of porchetta with wild fennel and a pasta mid-course starring F&W’s seasonal muse of the month: Delicata squash tortelli in black truffle-parsley broth. Rose snapped a shot of the dish for her Instagram (@lela_rose) and tagged it #FWmuse. Just like you should when you spot gourds through the weekend. She also just captured these chic Jack-o-Lanterns. Your awesome squash photos tagged with #FWMuse could be featured on foodandwine.com too.
