Welcome to cool days and freezing nights, frosty mornings and toasty warm homes. Autumn has come and gone, Winter is here. This is the season of the hardy root vegetables and those few frost resistant above ground veg. It's the time to snuggle up with a hearty bowl of soup and the best time of year to get familiar with your oven. It heats the house AND it cooks your food.
The upcoming recipes will be celebrating those dishes that fuel your body and warm your home. There'll be pies, risottos, tarts, dumplings, puddings, casseroles and stews. We'll find uses for bread, broad beans, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrot, lentils, apples and more (no, not all at once!) and they won't be soggy, tastleless or boring. In fact, they'll be rather appetising.
At the end of the season I'll collect together all the recipes for both Autumn and Winter and get them published for you in a real live physical book. Yes, the finalising of Autumn recipes is still going on. I have been somewhat overwhelmed and will be back-posting additional recipes as we go along. They may appear in your RSS feed reader and they will definitely show up in the Table of Contents.
