Panier of Plenty

Green, green grass of home…

As chestnuts fall (look out!), the grass is once again green – as
if spring has visited out of season – new shoots carpet what was
bare only days ago.

Chestnuts from the forest

The temperature rose to 28ºC today, yet nights are increasingly cooler,
with a heavy dew. At 7am, the mountains were still silhouetted by an
indigo glow, as a half moon hung in the starry sky…

…the first coulemelle – discovered growing in the grass on the
side of the belvédère – was delicious baked with butter and parsley.

Just picked

  1. Such wonderful produce yet again and bound to be featured so well on any autumn menu, including yours! Chestnuts are a marvel in their versatility, looking forward to seeing how you utilise this wonderful ingredient too 🙂
