Weekly Love: the one where autumn arrived.

1. A frankly stunning family Sunday roast of roast beef with all the trimmings at The Duck Inn at Pett Bottom. | 2. Exploring the stunning cutting garden at the home of all the beautiful dahlia varieties, Sarah Raven’s Perch Hill. | 3.

Saying goodbye to our friends tenure at my favourite place to eat, The Compasses Inn in Crundale, toasting them good luck for their new restaurant that I’m very, very excited about that is opening in Tunbridge Wells in November. | 5. A little storecupboard supper recipe if you’re still trying to cling to the last of the summer eats: my Tinned Mackerel Spaghetti with Lemon Chilli Breadcrumbs. | 6. And another back pocket classic: my Orzo Risotto with Lemon & Fresh Oregano.
