As the season turns golden, bringing autumn flavours to match, there’s much to celebrate in our kitchens as we look towards the year’s end. It’s a time to reassess how we cook, embracing the hearty, the wholesome and glorious autumn produce such as apples, pears, squash and pumpkins, But did you know how many pumpkins get thrown away each year after being carved? See p12 to find out how much soup those discards would make if rescued from the rubbish heap. I enjoy a bit of creative carving, but we have waaaay better things for you to do with pumpkins this year – see p58 for inspiration. (That risotto! That pie!) This issue has lots to provoke thought, too. Do you ever stop to think about where sugar comes from as…

STAR EMAIL FROM: NICOLA The last 12 months have been particularly stressful for our family. Our critically ill son was hospitalised but he received amazing care and responded well to the medications and treatments. We were ahead of the game in thanking and praising the NHS! His results at the start of 2020 were good, so we booked a family break in Milan to celebrate and relax a little. Obviously, it was soon clear Milan wasn’t going to be visited.
