Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is in flower

– Albert Camus

As the nights draw in, and those crisp, Autumnal mornings start to bite, you know that we’re starting to leave Summer well and truly behind. But whether you love the colourful leaves and cosy jumpers it brings, or find yourself pining for the warmer weather, there’s one thing that we can all agree on, Autumn is one the best times of year for British food. No wonder this is when we celebrate the Harvest Festival.

Soups, stews, pies and risottos, and hearty Sunday roasts after a brisk walk in the country, there’s so much to enjoy at this time of year. It’s hardly surprising that we start to crave warming, belly-filling classics.

Reflecting the gorgeous, autumnal colours, you have carrots, pumpkins and squash, beetroot, plums and blackberries, cabbage, kale and apples. And obviously fantastic meats. Autumn is when pretty much everything comes into it’s own, as well as being the start of the main game season.

So why not take inspiration from the Seasonal foods table below, or hunker down and try one of our tried and tested recipe suggestions?
