Embracing Autumn…

Apr

With the Winter Reaper knocking on our door, and Summer breathing her last breaths – we have a lovely little grace period called Autumn. This is my absolute favorite time of year, not only because I can now finally cover up – but so can the rest of the cut-off wearing, mid-riff bearing beautiful population of Cape Town. The playing field is somehow more even in the colder months… and one can take just that much more delight in soothing any weight worries with rich indulgences and solace in the knowledge that throwing on an oversized jersey won’t be out of place.

So, I bring to you (after a reflective break from the blog) the perfect meal to usher in the cooler weather and cozier evenings… Butternut, Fennel & Cambozola Risotto served with a homemade Maple-glazed Pumpkin seed and crispy Sage dust. Sounds complicated, but it truly isn’t. This is why I adore risotto because it lends itself to an infinite amount of possibilities when it comes to flavoring. Just like a blank canvas. So light the fire, open a bottle of chilled Pinot Noir and cozy up with a gorgeous bowl of deliciousness!
