We have so many favourite dishes in our household, ones that make a reappearance upon request or when a yearning arises.

Today I am bringing you five of my favourite dishes of Winter. I do hope you enjoy them.

You can also browse all of our Winter dishes – ones for Early Winter, Mid Winter and Late Winter.

Fava Bean (Dried Broad Bean), Fennel and Turmeric Soup

This is an extraordinarily flavoured soup that is hearty and just the thing for the coldest days of Winter. The soup is flavoured with spiced and herbs instead of using stock so it has very focused flavours.

Spicy Roasted Carrot and Apple Soup

This soup is so old fashioned and a bit twee, but that is what I love about it. It has the taste of an old fashioned English curry – sweet-spicy. I top it with fried onions for crunch.

Freekeh and Cauliflower Salad with Hazelnuts

I adore this salad. The salad is perfect for Winter with the base of Freekeh or Burghul. The cauliflower is steamed so is soft and creamy; the hazelnuts add their sweet-buttery flavour with their crunchy texture. The dressing of mustard and garlic with lemon and olive oil is absolutely perfect.

Pasta al Forno con Pomodori e Mozzarella | Baked Pasta with Tomatoes and Mozzarella

This is an amazing dish, one of Jamie Oliver’s from his book Italy. There is nothing better on an icy Winter day than to take this dish from the oven and serve it to a hungry family. I love to serve this for friends for Sunday lunch – a very hearty meal.

Baked Rice Pudding

Both my Mother and Grandmother would make this all the time – it is homely and delicious and isΒ  the best thing to throw in the oven on a freezing Winter day. Serve with hot custard, cream and/or icecream.
