As we come in to September, we see summer pass us by and welcome in autumn.
This is a very exciting time in the kitchen as we have all the ripe fruits and game is in season. These things go hand in hand and I particularly like duck with berry sauces.
We also start to see many members of the squash family come into season. These are wonderfully versatile fruits, from the very small round orange squashes to big and odder shaped ones! They can be roasted, used in stew, risottos, stuffed in ravioli or turned into pies. What ever you do with them, make sure you do not buy the flavourless ones that we turn in to jack-o-lanterns at Halloween or you will be very disappointed.
