Autumn Wedding Food.
"Autumn could be my favourite season. Richard and I had an autumn wedding and it's my birthday too, so I'm a real autumn girl. The leaves start to turn, the mustiness returns to the air; you can start to think about putting on layers (instead of the dread of taking them off) and best of all, it's the game season," enthuses Karen.
Light the wood-burning stove, bung in a pheasant for a really long slow braise - - heaven! What follows are just a few ideas for autumn eating. Karen will cook you any dish you like, but in our opinion, these are some of the best things to eat in the autumn.
Starters for an Autumn Wedding:
Pigeon terrine with spiced apple chutney and thick granary toast.
Wild mushroom and garlic puff pastry tart on a bed of winter leaves.
Butternut squash and sage soup with rosemary foccacia.
Winter leaf, English apple & crispy pancetta salad with melted Camenbert.
Caramelised, slow-roasted onions, San Danielle ham & parmesan shavings on garlic bruschetta.
Main courses for an Autumn Wedding:
Breast of pheasant with apple, Calvados & cream sauce.
Duck breast with blackberry and red wine sauce.
Tuscan sausage casserole in Chianti.
Game casserole with herb dumplings.
Gourmet sausages in cider, juniper and cream sauce.
Breast of chicken stuffed with porcini mushrooms, pancetta and sage with Masala sauce.
Desserts for an Autumn Wedding
We haven't mentioned desserts in our seasonal ideas, but it goes without saying that a chocolate pudding (be it mousse, hot fudge sundae, torte or roulades) can be eaten 365 days a year, that Eton mess is made in heaven, that and "Posh Jelly" & ice cream is always popular. What about stick-to-your-ribs desserts like bread-and-butter pudding, cobblers & crumbles (with all the deliciousness that autumn berries offer) with our homemade custard (to die for) are no brainers!
