Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Fall Brodo

Fall Brodo

A short list of ingredients and a whole lot of flavour. What's not to love? This delectable soup hits all the right notes for early autumn. But then, I love all the recipes in Betty Rosbottom's Sunday Soup. They're divinely delicious. The cookbook is from 2008;...

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Earlier this month, we invited some friends over for dinner at the Cape, and I wanted to make a dessert that was somewhat virtuous but with a hint of decadence. (The nearly universal donning of the January culinary hair-shirt gets a bit depressing). I thought about...

Pumpkin Tarts with Salted Caramel Nuts

Pumpkin Tarts with Salted Caramel Nuts

If you love all things pumpkin, add these elegant tarts to your baking repertoire. The crisp pastry shell contains a decadently smooth pumpkin filling and the salted caramel nuts add a marvellous layer of additional flavour.

Lancashire Beef Hot Pot

Lancashire Beef Hot Pot

This hearty one-pot stew is traditionally made with lamb, but is every bit as good with beef. The layer of potatoes forms a delicious crisp crust atop a mixture of beef, carrots and onions in a silky thick gravy. Just the ticket for cold nights. Serve with a side of...

The Churchill Cocktail

The Churchill Cocktail

It's always such a treat to visit Cliveden, a country house hotel in England, and it's an even bigger treat when the visit adds a delicious cocktail recipe to our repertoire.  We scored the champagne cocktail, the Cliveden 66, on our last visit. This cocktail,...

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

As cathedrals go, Ely Cathedral is one of the biggies. Literally, at 537 ft long, but also because of its story, which began in 672.  A lot has happened in the intervening 13+ centuries. Not just the usual political squabbling and overly ambitious clerics, but...

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Most of the grand manor houses we see in England have a history involving a lot of ups and downs. Sudeley Castle is the veritable Snakes & Ladders of the genre. The tale began innocuously enough with a commonplace event: William le Boteler of Wem married heiress...

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just...

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October....

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Let's do a little armchair travelling to the beautiful Cotswold villages of Burford and Chipping Campden. Like many people, we have postponed our overseas trips for now; I'll use the found time to catch up on photos of past trips and let the world gradually come to...
