Fall Is Here

Here's the duck dish from Sunday night: braised leg, spit-roasted breast, spelt cooked risotto-style with red wine, pan-seared cauliflower, and Concord grapes. Decadent yet austere, rich in textures and clean in flavor, this dish may be the first without a green garnish since the beginning—a harbinger of colder days to come. It's hard to imagine a more suitable dish for celebrating the return to sweater weather.
