November is the month of my Mum’s birthday. This has always given us an good excuse for particularly excellent food, and with my parents’ wine shop usually giving its annual winter wine tasting, it’s also a pretty good opportunity for some lovely wine. Unfortunately the wine tasting won’t be happening this year due to COVID, but I will still be raising a glass nonetheless.
As we begin our descent into winter the ingredients available start to fluctuate a little less than during the heady months of summer, but there are still delights to be had. November marks the beginnings of citrus fruit with clementines (can anyone smell Christmas?) and with a couple of months since the beginning of the shooting season, game is in its prime. Perfect for settling in with a glass of red.
