Autumn truly is a beautiful time of year. Besides the cliche about the wonderful mixture of warm colours – oranges, browns and mustard yellows – the light at this time of year is exceptional.
North London, Turnpike Lane: although rough around the edges, the area is a gem for reasonably priced fresh fruit and veg. This lovely bunch of asparagus cost me £1.39. A bargain when you consider the measley quantities given in Sainsbury’s or Tesco for almost double the price.
