    So glad to hear that you liked all of Hugh’s recipes that you tried! That is great news. I must say that I usually manage to find 1 or 2 recipes which each chef that weren’t my favorites, but even then they are still learning opportunities so I don’t mind.

    This salad looks like a very tasty way to celebrate apple season!
