The summer seems to be hanging on for a little while longer and in the kitchen, there are lots of salad crops and plenty of peas, beans, and courgettes to brighten our plates. This is the time of year for the arrival of the first game and foraged wild mushrooms, whose rich earthy flavours are perfect partners and the season for mussels, oysters, and scallops.
As the cold, long winter nights really kick in we can really enjoy lots of hearty, filling dishes and great tasting produce such as game, clementines and delicious shellfish. We finish off the month with perhaps the biggest food feast of the year Christmas Day Lunch and all the delicious Christmas dishes and culinary treats.
As we move through the year it is definitely time for Autumn and Winter vegetables to really start to shine. In the kitchen we can make wonderful thick soups and potages, stews and casseroles
