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.
November can be a dreary month - and a busy one on the pre-Christmas front. Enjoy the season's ingredients: almonds, pomegranates, dates, clementines and satsumas bring flavours of the East, while root veg (particularly parsnips, squash and celery), lamb, leafy greens, red cabbage and hearty foods such as sausages all make good eating now.
