Lancaster House general manager and Food & Wine lover Tim Bell, tells us why this Autumn should taste extra special this year.

The spring was mild and relatively frost-free, the summer heralded some great periods of warm, unbroken sunshine, and here now, as the leaves slowly turn into their annual shade of gold, we’ve enjoyed a sublime autumn. The net result of this continual run of fine weather is an autumnal harvest of un-paralleled quality for the Great British Crop.

We have a small veg patch at The Wild Boar which Laura has been lovingly tending to. This year the beetroot has been extremely good. We planted a one of the most popular varieties of beetroot called Boltardy and harvested them when they were the size of golf balls.

Haddock is a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals and is low in fat so is diet friendly. When combined with prawns there is just the most wonderful taste which makes you want to cook this over and over again. This can also be made in a larger portion and served with warm crusty bread as a main course – delicious!
