Ask the Butcher: What’s your favorite fall comfort food?

As soon as the leaves start changing and we start to feel a crisp autumn breeze we like to cozy up to comfort food. We asked the Lobels to share with us their favorite fall comfort foods.


Recipe: Tuscan-Style Meat Loaf with White Wine-Vegetable Sauce

Anyone who has traveled and eaten in Tuscany knows that meat loaves in all their glory are a big deal. Tuscan cooks usually made loaves with finely ground leftover braised or roasted meats.

While many of Tuscany’s offerings still are made from cooked meats, others, such as this time-honored loaf, are made from ground raw meat.
