Inspiration for your kitchen table

Eat in introductory header

Known as the fruit of the gods, figs are finally available. Sweet and succulent, they are all the more precious because of their short season, and simply divine on the Fig & Blackberry Pavlova. Autumn is also a great time to put on a big pan of preserves or pickles and fill the kitchen with sweet and savoury aromas. Our recipes make large quantities, so there’ll be plenty of jars to go round for friends and family. With the kids back at school, lunchbox inspiration is always welcome, especially for those on a gluten-free diet or who are fed up of sandwiches! Our tasty ideas will bring smiles all round.
