Indulge - Kathy Wakile



It’s always a bit of a shock when, once again, the school year begins, along comes a hint of a chill in the air, and pretty soon the leaves are blazing with color, blowing down from the trees, and piling up everywhere. Every year for as long as I can remember, whether trudging to school with my sister, Rosie, or picking my way through a pumpkin patch with Rich and the kids, I can hear and smell the holidays coming when I walk through drifts of fallen leaves, amid the rustling sounds and in the woodsy aroma of the drying foliage.

As I sadly kiss summer good-bye, I savor all the colors and smells and flavors of autumn and take great pleasure in the gradual transition from outside to indoors. I love how the season forms a bridge from days that are bright and breezy and still fairly long to times when darkness comes sooner, cold takes hold, and so do cozier cravings. By early October it has usually become chilly enough that I’m no longer all about avoiding using the oven. Quite the opposite: keeping the house warm and full of roasty-toasty smells is such a delight—a great consolation prize for losing the superlong days of summer when it stays light till eight or nine o’clock. No more pool parties and barbecues, but here come the holidays!

Fresh Fig Pizzette Bar

The Not-So-Forbidden Fruit

Growing up back in the old neighborhood in Paterson, New Jersey, we had a fig tree in our backyard (we actually lived in three different houses and dug up and brought the tree with us each time we moved), and the annual fig harvest was one of the joys of late summer. The same was true (and still is) for many immigrants from the Mediterranean. Anyone with a patch of dirt grew a fig tree, and many of the trees were started from cuttings brought over from the Old Country—literally branches from the family tree back home, snipped off and carried in a pocket or baggage on the long boat trip to America. So it came to be that, half a world away from the Mediterranean, a treasured seasonal tradition has carried on for generations. Every year, just as summer began to fade, we loved to eat the figs as they ripened, straight off the tree and still warm from the
