Seasonal Cooking | Early Winter

Adelaide Euro Colour in Winter

June of grey blue skies is a strange time of year, almost half way through the year, and a time people begin to reflect on what they wanted to achieve and how far they have come. It is a waning time of year, a time of reflection and winding down. In another month or 6 weeks that will begin to change. But I notice that this year particularly, this month has a swirly type of energy, as though it is on edge, waiting for something.

For us in the Southern Hemisphere, the landscape is still fine, full of winter colours, winter flowers and the vestiges of autumn leaves.

Food creates connections, builds family and community, provides warmth and comfort. Never underestimate the power of a good meal.

    Oh this is lovely Ganga. I’ve looking for some cooking inspiration and along comes your post at just the right time. This June is proving unsettling for us, househunting and moving are on the agenda. This will be good and something we’re doing for positive reasons, but it means I can empathise with your sense of June being swirly, one edge and waiting for something.

    That Dal Makhani looks utterly wonderful. Perfect for this time of year.
