Seasonal Cooking | MID AUTUMN – Don’t Miss These Recipes for Relaxed Autumn Living

The weather begins its transition this month, and like all change, is a little chaotic and changeable. Autumn is the time for crisp leaves, knitted sweaters, and comfort food. Windy, stormy at times, the Autumn rains come. Cooler days intersperse the fewer warmer ones, and while it is hard to let go of cooling foods, dishes get somewhat heavier and more warming. We grieve the passing of Summer but look forward to what Winter brings.

Seasonal Cooking | LATE SUMMER – Don’t Miss these Recipes for Cool Summer Living

As we enjoy the final month of Summer, often the hottest month, foods are still light and cooling. Gradually over the month, as signs of Autumn appear, the foods gain a little depth. We don’t want to think yet about the end of Summer, and that it means the approaching Winter. Spicy Indian food is great in Late Summer – the heat of the dishes is cooling to the system, and there are many cooling drinks, raitas and simply prepared foods. Rasams and Sambars abound.
