Autumn Round Up 2016
The sun is bright but there's a nip in the air! With autumn now fully upon us, the change of season compels us to seek foods that are warming, hearty and nourishing (and to invest in some serious knitwear too).
Delicate yet rich game features on The Keeper's House and The Wallace menus. Autumn fruit, such as gooseberries, blackberries, apples and pears, can be seen growing in gardens, hedgerows and footpaths all over the UK - perfect for plucking and adding to a crumble. Vegetables like leeks, peas squash and onion are at their freshest and most savoury or sweet.
