HARVEST FRUIT COBBLER WITH COBNUTS

SWEET / SUMMER / AUTUMN

Vanilla Rice Pudding with Apple and Blackberry Compote

AUTUMN

You will probably think this method of making rice pudding looks difficult because it is done in a bain-marie – i.e. in a bowl over a pan of simmering water – but in fact it is much easier than on a hob, as you barely have to stir it, and you don’t have to watch […]

Spiced Pumpkin, Butter Bean and Spinach Casserole

AUTUMN

If you prefer to cook your own butterbeans, use 100g, and see the method on page 229. ‘I love pumpkin and spice, and this is a great alternative to a meat casserole,’ says John Hardwick. ‘Good with rice or couscous and a dollop of sour cream.’

Wild Rice, Red Cabbage, Apple and Toasted Cobnuts Salad

AUTUMN

In season you should be able to find the nuts in shops, greengrocers and markets. If you can’t find cobnuts, […]

Griddled Butternut Squash, Goat’s Cheese and Olive Salad

AUTUMN

We make this with soft, creamy Oddington goat’s cheese. It is a salad that plays on the contrast of colours and looks stunning layered up, rather than tumbled together.
