Inspiration for your kitchen table

Eat in introductory header

As the evenings grow chilly, I find myself turning to spices to add warmth and depth of flavour. Creating your own spice mixes is a lot of fun and a sure way to pep up some favourite recipes. I know that you love seeing new ideas for mince so this month we oblige with some tasty Mini Cottage Pies and a truly special free-form Moroccan Lamb Pie. Finally, one of the joys of late autumn is that pears are at their peak. With their firm texture and natural sweetness, they are a delight to bake with, especially with apples, quinces and cranberries in a tart, or steeped in maple syrup and cinnamon. Enjoy!
