Wel­come to Septem­ber

It’s al­ways dan­ger­ous for edi­tors to men­tion the weather in our in­tro, as in­evitably if we men­tion the sun there’ll be the big­gest down­pours on record. But, see­ing as we’re strid­ing (san­dals, shorts, sun­dresses and all) into the fi­nal few weeks of sum­mer, we wanted to bring you an is­sue that re­ally made the most of it. We’ve bar­be­cue ideas (don’t worry, there are wet weather/oven in­struc­tions, too) in­spired by cook­ery writer Adam’s trav­els in Viet­nam, and nat­u­rally warm­ing recipes via pep­per­corns – one of our most un­der­rated but most ver­sa­tile spices – in­clud­ing a bril­liant cho­co­late and black pep­per gelato. There’s a les­son on pre­serv­ing – surely one of the most sat­is­fy­ing things to do on a rainy day – and a guide to the new restau­rants just about to open across the UK (get the dates in your di­ary and ta­bles booked, now). Plus, we’ve tips on brush­ing up your wine knowl­edge and our usual great travel ideas. Ever heard of a mi­cro b&b? They are the lat­est travel trend and an ideal way to squeeze in a spe­cial get­away. And, if you’re plan­ning any trips in these few re­main­ing weeks be­fore the small peo­ple go back to school, can I thor­oughly rec­om­mend you do one thing. If you’re down in Devon, do check out Sal­combe Dis­till­ing Co’s new gin school, where you can have fun drink­ing gob­lets of cit­russy gin and tonic, cre­at­ing your own blend of botan­i­cals and dis­till­ing your own booze be­fore bot­tling it up with a be­spoke la­bel. Read more about it in The Mea­sure.
