Fall is the time for apples, winter squashes, and, of course, the fall foliage. On today's show, we'll discover a quiet Victorian Fall destination in Michigan: Mackinac Island. Later, Darina Allen tells us all about Samhain, the Irish Halloween. It's not Halloween without pumpkins, and novelist Barbara Kingsolver enjoys growing these fruits of fall. Also, Phoebe Damrosch reveals the secrets of working front of the house in Thomas Keller's famed restaurant Per Se. Then we'll talk to Chef Keller himself about all his restaurants. Plus, making perfect pies, the Amateur Gourmet, and much more. [Broadcast Date: October 25, 2007]
