Sad though it is to say goodbye to summer eating, autumn brings its own delights, from figs to mushrooms, apples, game and chestnuts.There's a certain sadness as summer departs, but as always on the food front there are culinary compensations: food takes on a heartier note, with pies, crumbles and casseroles back on the menu.
Food highlights include figs, pheasant, walnuts, apples, pears and pumpkins, grapes, celeriac and mushrooms.

Plums, apples and figs should be at the forefront of your fruit list this month, while aubergines and peppers are still at their best for flavour. Feast on game - pheasant, venison, grouse, partridge and guinea fowl all make superb eating.
Mushrooms should be tracked down this month: Delia has plenty of lucscious recipes including wild mushroom risotto, soup and a gorgeous midweek frittata…
Think wintry greens, cheap meat cuts and exotic fruit this month: jewel-like pomegranates sit alongside vibrant tangerines and purple figs in the fruit bowl, while we consider the delights of slow-cooking and braising.
