A feast of au­tumn fruit

OC­TO­BER’S HAR­VEST OF GRAPES IS A SEA­SONAL BOUNTY THAT’S TOO GOOD NOT TO SHARE

The Simple Things - - LIVING - Pho­tog­ra­phy & styling: KYM GRIMSHAW Words & recipes: LOT­TIE STOREY

Au­tumn is a time of plen­ti­ful fruit, when sweet sum­mer ber­ries make way for or­chard fruits, the grape har­vest, and burstlingly sweet figs. It’s all very Ro­man. And there’s an Ital­ian flavour to this month’s menu. Sea­sonal shades of orange and pur­ple dance off the plate in this sim­ple spread, kick­ing off with sweet and salty ri­cotta and grape toasts, fol­lowed by a lus­cious fig-stuffed chicken dish, and fin­ish­ing up with drunken Pe­dro Ximénez prunes. Share these in­tense flavours with friends – whether it’s after a day of har­vest­ing or an in­vig­o­rat­ing stroll kick­ing up leaves along coun­try lanes. »
