This unerringly precise pumpkin cheesecake from Rose Levy Beranbaum is the perfect alternative to pumpkin pie. (Whoops. Is that heresy?)
Pork tenderloin is seared then topped with rich honey, rosemary, and butter with apple salsa—yes, salsa—on the side. Ah, autumn.
Layers of delicate ladyfingers alternate with espresso-and-liqueur laced chocolate mousse. Drizzled over scoops of the cake is a lovely vanilla custard cream.
