Buys and news
As we head into October, the game season is in full swing and native vegetables – kale, cabbages, celeriac, squash and pumpkin – are at their best. There are still plenty of delicious eating and cooking apples to be had too. For shellfish lovers, oysters and mussels are on the menu. For the foragers, damsons and wild mushrooms are there for the picking. And look out for Kentish cobnuts, which can be used in the same way as hazelnuts. Delicious dipped in dark chocolate.
