Continuing his popular Seasonal Gatherings series, Rick Rodgers's latest offering shares the bounty of harvest time. Like its companion books, Autumn Gatherings: Casual Food to Enjoy with Family and Friends has simple, scrumptious fare that showcases the season's produce and encourages cooks to gather around the table with loved ones.

In these pages you will find cozy, uncomplicated fare to enjoy with the traditions of the season. You find recipes perfect for tailgating (Hoboken Cheesesteaks) or a Halloween party (Carrot-Apple Cupcakes), and a delicious centerpiece for your Thanksgiving feast (Dry-Brined Roast Turkey with Sage and Cider Gravy).

For a snack with friends after carving your Jack 0' Lantern, nibble on Warm Roasted Butternut Squash Salsa with Tortilla Chips in front of the fire. Follow it with a main course of Red-Eye Chili (its secret ingredient is coffee) and a dessert of warm Pumpkin Sticky Toffee Pudding.

All of autumn's fruits and vegetables find their way into the recipes, from cranberries to figs, to Concord grapes and sweet potatoes. Curious cooks will find delicious uses for potentially unfamiliar items like persimmons (enjoy Grandma Edith's Persimmon Cookies while doing back-to-school homework with the kids) and quince (it looks like a lumpy pear) baked into a luscious Tarte Tatin.
