Throughout the month of November, My Edmonds News will feature local businesses offering fall foods. Today we highlight the hearty menu at Chanterelle restaurant, which recently won awards for Best Full Breakfast and Best Business Lunch in the My Edmonds News Best of Edmonds 2013 readers’ poll. We checked in with Brooke Baker, co-owner of Chanterelle with her husband Randy, to find out more about their menu.

“I love so much about autumn cooking. We use a lot of root vegetables in our soups at this time of year, and do a fresh root vegetable medley in the cool season months to serve along with our dinner entrees. I am pretty crazy about pumpkin this time of year. We’re doing a lot of different pumpkin – and butternut squash – soups right now. We’ve got a great pumpkin mousse cheesecake, and the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are flying too. We’re baking pumpkin muffins at breakfast, especially on the weekends, and offering pumpkin toast as a breakfast bread choice as well.

“Oh, but you were asking me about dinner specials, so I’m going to come back around to pumpkin and say I love-love-love the sausage and mozzarella ravioli with the pumpkin sage cream sauce. But it’s a toss up. I love them all. We work together each month on the following month’s specials until we nail what we want to offer.

“We have a really really good dinner menu, and a very well rounded wine list with about 50 bottles, almost all under $35. Sometimes people will think of us as their favorite breakfast or lunch spot, and not even realize that we’re open for dinner and do pretty fine job of it. The ambience even changes with soft lighting and candles, linen napkins etc. Something new and exciting is our expanded happy hour program that has 20 different small plates at 2.99 – 5.99, and beer, cider and wine specials from 2.99 – 4.99. We even have five different two-course happy hour dinners at 11.99. So think evenings!”

If you own a business offering an autumnal dish or food, let us know at arts@myedmondsnews.com, and we may feature you as our hearty taste of the month.
