APRIL | It’s the tail end of Autumn now – my favourite season. The leaves are vibrant and gorgeous, the air is as clear as glass, it’s getting dark earlier and my thoughts turn to the warmth and light of the kitchen.

This is the season for slow braised meats, earthy vegetables and home made treats for the lunch box. I love having a few minutes spare in the morning to throw some simple ingredients in the slow cooker and come home to the rich and warming aromas in the house. Even better than that, are those days where I have as much time in the kitchen as I want!

It’s still not too late in the year to use the barbecue – there’s something about rugging up with a beanie on and grilling some gorgeous marinated meat and vegetables over the flames. It reminds me a bit of going camping, but better because I get to sleep in my own bed!

In May I am inspired to use pumpkin, mushrooms, leeks, spinach, carrots and lots of spuds. Oranges and apples feature in dessert (when we have it). Have a happy end-of-autumn!
