“Good soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living…for soup can do more to lift the spirits and stimulate the appetite than any other one dish.” – Louis De Gouy, The Soup Book (Dover Publications, 2011)

Every country in the world has something sweet either to wrap a good meal, to eat as a snack, or to accompany the midday tea. Whether it maybe a pie, bread, ices or a cake, these are, besides being more popular, some of my favourite desserts. Try tasting them at speciality restaurants or if you can’t find them anywhere near where you live, it’s a good excuse for a holiday!
Apples are so versatile that while they are great to eat raw, they also make a delicious addition to baked goods, salads, sauces or stews. Apple recipes make the most of apples when they are in season. Apples come in so many colors, shapes, and sizes. Their flavor can range from crisp and sour to soft and sweet. The beauty of the apple is that its taste will change from year to year depending on the growing conditions. In fact, flavor can vary from apple tree to apple tree and even from orchard to orchard. So whenever possible buy your apples from a local orchard or farmer’s market and remember what Horace once said “Whatever variety of apple you eat, to get the best make sure to buy only those picked by the light of the waning moon”.

October is fall harvest month! Nothing says, “It’s fall, y’all,” quite like our favorite orange gourd, the pumpkin!

Yearly, pumpkins adorn our porch steps, table centerpieces and treasured recipes, but have you ever taken a step back to truly appreciate the pumpkin?
