Okay so Summer’s officially over and the night’s are drawing in, but it’s a good excuse to turn to warming, ‘comfort’ foods and turn your central heating on!
Autumn makes me think of recipes with butternut squash. I have a wonderful risotto recipe with squash (or pumpkin), chilli, fresh peas and mint which I will share with you. There’s always a few autumn vegetable soups around with celery, beetroot, broccoli and garlic all at their best in October. Aubergines are still available so there’s still time to try my Aubergine, Mint and Pecorino Bake if you haven’t already!
Then, of course, our wonderful British apples come to the fore. Ive got some bramley apples which are the best for my Autumn Apple cake recipe which has already been widely distributed by my Mum! It makes a delicious moist cake; one that I’m sure Mary Berry would be pleased with! I will add it to this blog in the next couple of days.
