Second course: Cider-glazed sea scallops with butternut squash puree; or spaetzle with Brussels sprouts, pine nuts and maple butter.
Third course: Gnocchi with roasted root vegetables and homemade duck sausage; or stuffed acorn squash with farro, apples, toasted almonds, Madeira-soaked golden raisins and sage.
