Autumn

(Autumn)


During the months of September to December we experience the end of summer and the start of winter, and even though I love all the seasons, I would have to say that Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons.


The seasons bring round the time of the year when we can get specific food's at it's best!


With Autumn being our topic, the food's we can look forward to are Figs, Pears, Pumpkins, Plums, Leeks, Turnips, Kale, Cabbage's and much more.


Seeing the list above of the food in season, my mind just races to one thing, COMFORT FOOD!


If It's being a succulent sweet Pumpkin pie for dessert after a Sunday dinner or a nice Fig cake to enjoy with a brew, then we can flip it over and have slow roasted leeks that can be used in a soup or a risotto. The dishes are endless and down to us to put them to use and experiment. I always feel and maybe you feel the same too, Autumn gives us the feeling of warm meals to cosy us up, while the nights are getting darker earlier and the leaves are starting to showcase the wonderful colours of Autumn for us, we know the feel of change and probably most of us feel like it's the run up to Christmas.


Halloween and Bonfire Night are big things for me, ever since I was a child I have always enjoyed Halloween. We don't celebrate it as extravagant as the American's do which I wish we did but hey, we can't have everything in life. While Halloween comes with trick or treat, pumpkin spice latte's and different sweets of harvest flavours, we also can use this as a great reason to get creative with Pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, Pumpkin risotto, Baked Pumpkin soup, Pumpkin cake and loads more. I love getting creative with the orange symbol circle of October!


Equally Bonfire Night gives us a different feeling as it's the celebration of Guy Fawkes foiled plan of blowing up Parliament in 1605, but now it's a glorified reason for us to light fireworks and build bonfires. When I was a child on Bonfire Night it was Chilli con carne, Parkin cake, treacle toffee and I loved it. Proper childhood memories.


Another celebration that's huge in Autumn is Thanksgiving in America, basically another Christmas Day for them and I'm not jealous one bit (LIES), this is celebrated on the last Thursday in November, they cook huge feasts, get all the family round and celebrate.


Autumn gives us so much to look forward to and with us being foodies, it gives us a lot of selection to cook but also even more choice to eat out and try new places that have catered there menu to an autumn feel.


I hope you's are making the most of Autumn as before we know it Winter will be here and the big coats and hot baths at night will be in effect!


Enjoy yourselves and stay safe and I'll catch you for Winter
