October seasonal food

October welcomes the most luscious of autumnal produce, but how to make the most of all the best seasonal food on offer? Well, you can start with kale, celeriac, wild mushrooms…all to be found in abundance this month. And while sausages are never out of season, October is possibly the perfect month to cosy up with a comforting sausage casserole.
