This is a lovely book for this time of year and Diana Henry's recipes remind me that autumnal food is probably my favourite. I made her wheaten bread this morning, a sweeter crumb than my usual soda bread.
Last night's dinner was a veal chop with Nigel's pear, watercress and fennel salad an old favourite from here.
And this Victoria plum cake is in the oven right now.
On the autumnal downside, there is an enormous wasps' nest right on top of the trapdoor into the loft.
