If you roast your own pork loin, cook it to an internal temperature of at least 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Turn the meat gently while cooking and try not to puncture it to keep moisture from seeping out. Cook roasted chicken to an internal temperature of 165 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Serve fig and apple compote with toast squares or crackers and some blue cheese or goat cheese. Seasonally appropriate fruit tarts might include cherries, apples or cranberries.
To make an autumn salad, mix spicy greens such as arugula and endive with chopped Granny Smith apples, candied walnuts and roquefort cheese chunks. Serve it drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette and some pomegranate seeds. Butternut squash soup is simple and hearty. To serve it at a wedding, offer it in small bowls or even as an appetizer in shooter glasses. Make or purchase spiced cider, and serve it hot to guests. Add some brandy to make it into a signature cocktail. Provide cinnamon sticks and cloves as garnish.Learn more about Weddings
