Dear Friends

Fall is in the air! It's perfect soup and bread weather! It is also a great time to shop at local Farmers Markets as they are filled with a variety of butternut and acorn squashes, pumpkins (and still some tomatoes too!). Just a half mile down the road from Laurel Run you will find Krieg's Roadside Market and Aufdenkampe's Family Farm, each loaded with fall color and wonderful produce. 

We are busy in the kitchen at the cooking school.  Take a look at these upcoming classes.
