F is for “foodie,” a person with a particular interest in food. Someone who’s always up for trying new places and has a refined but adventurous palate.

And this month at Chesterfield Lifestyle, we’re all about feasting with foodies as we just scratch the surface of all the fine eats and drinks Chesterfield has to offer.

The dog days of summer brought us ice cream, refreshing salads and cocktails enjoyed by the pool as we celebrated the Fourth of July, vacations and abundant sunshine.

But the autumnal days of October bring us a selection of wines, chili cooking on the stove, seasonal fruits and veggies and pumpkin spice, well, pretty much everything, as we celebrate football season, some warm-weather relief and shorter days moving toward the end of the year.

Whether you consider yourself a foodie, a gourmet, an epicure or just an average eater; whether you’re into white or red wine, craft beer at your favorite brewery, a latte from your favorite café or just a pumpkin full of leftover Halloween candy, we hope this issue inspires you to check out the amazing food scene right here in Chesterfield.

Stay hungry, Chesterfield.

We’ll see you around!
