Eating seasonally: Autumn

It’s starting to cool down! Lovely layering is back in town!

That’s right my friends: it is Autumn.

What does that mean for our plates?

Well, plenty of delicious leaves and colourful fruits – not so much as you find in abundant summer, but still enough to satisfy a broad palate. Vitamin C rich foods are all around – citrus, pomegranates, cumquats, etc – which are perfectly timed for a pre-winter boost. Root vegetables are also starting to make an appearance.

Dig in!
