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.
