A farmhouse dinner is simple and elegant. The flavors reflect the local region, and the dishes celebrate the current season. For winter this means roast chicken with warm herbs, simple pasta with rabbit sausage, lemon and cheese, slow-roasted root vegetables with good-quality olive oil and fresh garlic, fresh-baked crusty bread topped with homemade butter, and a warm pecan pie or chocolate torte. Gather your family and friends around the table for a meal that is sure to inspire heartwarming stories and a hearty dose of laughter to warm up the coldest of days.
