Local apple crisp, focaccia, and Harvest Fest! Oh my!

Craving local food that rivals your home cooking? Head to Harvest Fest at Andrews Commons, going on right now until 9:00 p.m.! Thanks to Assistant Manager, Bobby Noyes, and the other culinary geniuses of Brown University Dining Services, you’ll be instantly tantalized by the great colors, smells, and of course, tastes, of a fall feast boasting a menu that is not only absolutely delicious, but also very local.

Although extremely different from the BLT grinders I eat weekly (which are probably definitely going to give me heart disease by graduation), the food is especially not to be missed. For two meal credits, you can get Cider Brined Statler Chicken Breast with Local Portuguese Sausage Stuffing and House Made Piri Piri Hot Sauce, Fried Wild Rice with Soy Butter Mushrooms, Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Maple Sriracha Sauce and Fresh Cilantro, and the Local Apple Crisp with Creme Anglaise.

Oh and let’s not forget the Hoisin Porter Braised Beef Short Ribs with Roasted Parsnips & Yams, Sautéed Butternut Squash, Harvest Focaccia, and Kale, Barley, Poached Pear, Feta, and Cherries tossed with white Balsamic Dressing. Basically, the whole menu is worth your time. What else do you have to do? Study for midterms?
