Chocolate Fig Pudding Cake

This deliciously seasonal chocolate fig pudding cake is a classic chocolate cake at the edges, but the further in to the centre you go, the more puddingy it is – like a chocolate fondant in a slice. It’s also incredibly easy and quick to make yet will make a big impression at any table.

Roasted Squash with Serrano Ham

This warm salad is ideal for the chillier days of autumn when you don’t need to go straight to root veg winter stews yet but still need a bit of warmth and substance to your dishes.
With its combination of bright flavours, nutty tones and the richness of the ham, it’s a new stalwart for chillier autumn days

Roasting Pan Butternut Squash & Prawn Curry

This recipe is definitely not the usual way of making a curry – instead of hovering over the stove, you simply add the various components to the roasting tin at a couple of intervals during cooking and walk away. While it does take a fair while to roast, it’s totally fuss-free to make, and it turns out beautifully rich, aromatic and full-flavoured thanks to its time being ignored in the hot oven.

Hedgerow Gin

Made with bullace or damsons instead of sloes, the flavour profile of this ‘hedgerow’ gin is a little less complex than that of sloe gin and it’s ready to drink a lot sooner too, making it great for adding to autumn-themed cocktails or simply serving over ice as a fabulous seasonal tipple. That’s not to say that sloe gin isn’t worth making too in a few weeks’ time – there’s nothing nicer than a thimbleful on a cold dark night in winter – but this simpler alternative is tasting pretty good right now, as a fruity, seasonal segue into autumn.
