Week’s menu for September – No1

food in hamburg
Hamburg – one of the most beautiful cities in Europe – and home to some damn good food

Turning our attention to diet and nutrition, I love a caprese salad and a glass of nutritious rosé on a sunny Tuscan terrace as much as the next person. The fact is, though, we’re here, not there, so let us review our options, which are uniformly thrilling: crumpets, pies, proper rich fruit cake instead of your fancy little foreign tartlets, hot puddings, roast pork with crackling and all the trimmings on a freezing day, red wine — so much less of a hangover than rosé — hearty soups, stews, lasagne, crumble, need I go on? On Sunday afternoons, as the rain pelts against the windows, there is no reason even to contemplate doing anything except lighting the fire and a scented candle, and sitting on the sofa with a hot Ribena and a heavily buttered crumpet. If you don’t think that sounds like the bee’s knees, then I’m afraid you are tired of life and there’s nothing to be done with you.

Week’s menu for September – No2

food for a week in September

“Early in the month, summer feels like it’s making its mind up about exactly when to leave and everything on the smallholding seems to sense a change coming. The animals become less active, the trees look less upright and lively, and the chickens lay less frequently. The vigour and chirpiness of spring and summer seem to be becoming loose and tatty, like favourite jeans aging.”

-Mark Diacono, A Year at Otter Farm

With September the year shifts into autumn so we see the last of the courgette flowers and corn on the cob and quail come into season.
