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.
