It's time for big wooly jumpers, crunchy fallen leaves, crisp evening walks and the smell of open fires, yes it's definitely October!
With the change of season I'm seriously craving more comfort food, so this month it's all about delicious dishes that warm you up, from the inside out!
There's lots to keep us occupied in the kitchen with Autumn fruit and vegetables like apples, pears, figs, blackberries and big orange pumpkins plus great root veggies like beetroot, carrots, and Jerusalem artichokes.
After months of having to keep quiet (very hard for me to do!) it was great to finally reveal that I am the brand new judge on BBC's Junior Masterchef, alongside John Torode. We recorded the series throughout August in London and it's going to be airing on CBBC and BBC in November. It's a really positive show and the young cooks who took part are definitely going to blow you away. The show starts on November 5th on BBC1 at 4.30pm.
Kitchen Hero: Great Food For Less also starts back on RTÉ One on November 7th at 8.30pm. You can find the recipes from the series in the book which accompanies the series, "Kitchen Hero: Great Food For Less", available in all good book shops now.
I've been pretty much obsessed with Pinterest, in the last few months. It's a super source of inspiration for food, photography and so much more, you can check out my boards over here and sign up also!
In this month's update, there's a selection of my favourite Autumn and Halloween recipes from the website, a review of Leila Lindholm's new cookbook, three ingredients I've been using lots of, a wonderful little spot in Stockholm to eat at and two of my favourite food blogs.
Have a great Halloween!
