Weekly Menu for November 1st: Winter is Coming

As I still have guests in town I thought it would be good to have a couple of dishes that are great for entertaining: they have a big impact but are actually not very difficult to make at all, and are somewhat time insensitive. Perfect for late guests. And then we are revisiting an old favourite for comfort food — pan fried gnocchi— which is a great dish for winding down after those visitors have left.

What’s fresh at the market this week

This weekend is almost certainly, absolutely the last chance to get yourself tomatoes, peppers, ground cherries and other fruit and veg destroyed by frost so stock up now while you can!
