Ginger biscuits recipe

Good on their own with a cup of tea, or ideal for smartening up any pudding.

Liz's marzipan and dried cherry flapjacks recipe

The tartness of the dried cherries in these flapjacks prevents them from being too sweet, and the marzipan adds a hint of almond.

Pelargonium-scented strawberry jam recipe

This strawberry jam is scented with pelargonium leaves, which adds a delicious, unique flavour.

Banbury cakes recipe

These Banbury cakes are brilliantly versatile – filled with less sweet homemade mincemeat, they are great for pudding or tea at Christmas time.

Porcini mushroom soup recipe

I love a hearty mushroom soup – nothing feels more like autumn – and this recipe is so easy to make.

Christmas cake never seems to get eaten in our house, so I tend to make several small ones rather than a single big one. These are also great for presents...

Brussels sprouts salad with an orange and mustard dressing recipe

 This raw Brussels sprouts salad is full of flavour and a delicious winter treat that is light and satisfying.

Inspiring cookbook with endless seasonal recipes

Reviewed 16th June 2014 by Lisa Hector

I bought this book after a visit to Perch Hill this summer. I have both the Garden and Christmas cookbooks, which are both fantastic, so I knew this one wouldn't disappoint. Looking through it, there are so many wonderful recipes, all set out over the four seasons. I've made the chocolate, beetroot and orange cake, totally divine! I'm looking forward to cooking my way through this book, it's a must for anyone that enjoys interesting seasonal cooking.
