Seasonal Food and Flora


Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Stacked Waldorf Salad

Apple season is upon us, and while I love all the braised, rich dishes that come with fall, a tangy, crunchy and fresh appetizer is always welcome.    This salad is from an old issue of Victoria Magazine (October 2014). I was intrigued by by the modern... read more

Basil Pesto

It’s that time of year when basil plants are at their fragrant peak and visions of pasta ribbons festooned with pesto start dancing before our eyes. Our family loves pesto, and Spaghetti with Pesto and Shrimp is a go-to mid-week meal. It’s dead simple and... read more

Apple Spice Cakelets

Last summer in the Cape, our friends John and Leanne came to visit, Leanne is quite an accomplished cook and baker; John, her husband, is a batter aficionado, so we all spent a pleasant day immersed in baking activities – Leanne and I baking and John cleaning up... read more

The Essential New York Times Cookbook

I came across this cookbook when I was writing the post for Purple Plum Torte and down an internet rabbit hole I happily went. The Kindle version is only $1.99 versus the hardcover at $28.99, so who could resist? Instant gratification at its finest. The book is a... read more

Entertablement Abroad – Leeds Castle, Kent

We’ve been settled in Kent for almost a week now, in a tiny cottage on the grounds of Leeds Castle. One of the benefits of staying on the property is the ability to wander the grounds after everyone has gone home, so we got these night shots a couple of evenings... read more

Entertablement Abroad – Fortnum & Mason

A trip to Fortnum & Mason is always high on my list of priorities soon after we arrive in London. While Fortnums are probably best known for their luxury hampers, the entire store overflows with tempting goods, from teas to liquors; spices to biscuits; scarves to... read more

Entertablement Abroad: Out and About in London

We’re back in England for a few weeks, and started our trip in London this time. London. Gotta love it. Beautiful architecture, wonderful food and gorgeous shopping arcades. This one is on Regent Street. Our usual schedule is to take an overnight flight, land at... read more

Entertablement Abroad – Arundel Castle

As far as castles go, Arundel is an exceptional example. No moat (at least, no wet moat, and frankly, what other kind is there)? Nonetheless, a magnificent castle. Guarded by an impressive gatehouse, the approach to the castle sets the tone for what is to come. Solid... read more
