A slice of oozy creamy brie sat on top of a piece of Smyrna sun-dried quince and I was in heaven. As I stood there savouring every last morsel I cold feel the ideas blooming in my mind. Walnuts! Yes, walnuts! What if I was to put these three things together - the quinc...

The shadows are dancing on the timber floor as the wind shakes the trees outside, to and fro, to and fro. There is a real chill to the air; its crisp and has been raining on and off since the early hours of the morning.
