We’ve had a lovely Summer and have been spoilt enjoying plentiful fruits and delicious green vegetables.  Now we are getting into the last quarter of the year it’s time for a whole new batch of fantastic ingredients.  It’s a funny time for us as Chefs where we await the ground to the freeze to bring the best out of the hardy root vegetables such as Parsnips, Jerusalem Artichokes, Swedes and of course not forgetting the Red Cabbage!

It’s been a windy a couple of weeks down at Oxwich Bay and a lot of the soft fruits that we usually enjoy at the end of Summer and early Autumn have sadly been lost.  However just a short walk from the restaurant and past the sand dunes there are still some great apples which are better at holding against the harsh rain and wind.  I’ve picked every single one from the trees and am creating a new apple dessert which I am excited to say will be featured on the menu at next week's’ Guest Chef’s Night.
