The eggplant and basil have slowly slipped away and been replaced with potatoes, brussel sprouts and beetroot. Meals are being planned around pumpkin, mandarins are being snacked on and kale? Well kale is fairly consistently there.
I’ve said it before, but I will say it again. I feel that we are incredibly lucky living in an area that has such abundance in food varieties, despite the different seasons. The cooler seasons where in some parts of the world, the eating would start getting incredibly restrictive, here just gives us a different array of colours, tastes and still we get to keep it relatively local. That right there, is pretty damn wonderful.
Some delicious things to look out for coming into the winter season
beetroot (roasted and turned into dip)
broccoli (served olive oil and awesome salt)
cabbage (sauerkraut yes please)
kale (sausage rolls yes indeed, recipe to come for that one)
leek (leek and potato soup)
What’s cooking in your kitchen at the moment? Is it now the beginnings of Winter or Summer for you?
