The summer season peak is looking towards the end with regards to summer fruits coming from the continent (if not already as looking now through my lounge wide window showing the interminable flow of rain falling on us on this day) as peaches,  nectarins and melon are showing their best fully mature and ripe flavours as if dressed for an occasion so to excuse themselves until next time.

Although Pears are now juicy and gorged with the sweetness of  a honey pot , apples falling from the tree announcing their readiness , demanding one thing that a little of short crust pastry to be placed under and over them as a blanket , a duvet telling us to start covering ourselves , reminder of the colder days to come.

Don’t we simply love the turn of the seasons , the changes in our eating  and taste as tomatoes and fennels will slowly leave place to cabbages and roots , parsnips and celeriac , game birds  and stews , I read you already looking for to finish your sauce with a drop of chocolate or cranberry jelly so to accompany the venison loin  gently roasting in the foam of the light butter , a crispy sliced beetroot placed delicately atop as per ornament with alongside freshly sautéed Spaetzle  .

Lets open our minds on the goodness simple dishes as such are to bring upon us , the sheer joy shared with our family usually expressed by Mmmmmm’s and Yuuuum’s.

As per one of our previous update , our still very new and what I may announce to be of a certain success, our Facebook page was created for the purpose and is to be used as a professional platform  , we are therefore welcoming any of you to bring along your knowledge , sharing with us all your deepest secret place or favorite food fair tucked into your area perhaps , or any original product you may have stumbled upon  that could wows us all or a new magazine that could be of any interest allowing us discovery  ….and so on

Until next time , I wish you happy cooking !
