Seasonal Food and Flora


Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Broccoli Soup with Mustard Seeds

This recipe is adapted from Sarah Lee Chase’s Cold Weather Cooking and is absolutely delicious. She in turn caged the recipe from the Powers Family of Weston, Connecticut, so the gift just keeps on giving, folks. I love the entire cookbook, which is just... read more

Braised Vegetables with Pan Roasted Pork Chops

Braised vegetables are among my very favourite, especially when they’re done on the stovetop while quickly searing a pork chop in a cast iron pan to pop into the oven. Delicious, deeply flavoured meal ready in 20 minutes.  The December 2016/January 2017... 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
