As Summer draws to an end, September brings a whole array of autumnal fruit and vegetables to the table. Is there anything better than a big bowl of Autumn comfort food? Traditionally this time of year marks the peak of the harvest and is central to the UK’s rural calendar, with many towns and villages still celebrating with a harvest festival.
