In season: November

What do you think will winter be full of snow? I somehow hope it will not. But if it does, we couldn’t care less, there will be more time for cooking and socializing in the home environment. In November, seasonal foods are: cabbage, chestnuts, cranberries and pomegranate.

Despite the cool last days of September, I still believe in the golden and sunny autumn. An irreparable optimist what can I do. On the other hand, when it is rainy and gloomy outside, there is something in a hot tea, a home-made cake and a blanket. In October we enjoy seasonal: sweet potato, mushrooms, pears and grapes. The truth is that sweet potato is present in our diet only for several years now. However, once you try it, addiction is inevitable. The interior of this vegetable varies from orange to purple, with orange that is sweeter and has...
