September is home to Bourbon Heritage Month and California Wine Month. This month also celebrates two of my favorite foods; the humble potato and yummy mushrooms. Sadly September also brings with it the unofficial end of summer with Labor Day and the official end of summer with the Autumn Equinox. There is so much more to celebrate throughout the month, so start planning now!
