Cooking with November’s Seasonal Foods

Seasonal vegetables

November is the time to start cooking those warming family favourite dishes. These are the recipes that provide plenty of nutritional value and warm up cold bones. These are the dishes that many of us consider to be the best comfort foods. Served with potatoes and plenty of vegetables, we are left with full tummies and warm toes.

November is also an excellent month for home cooks as many of our favourite foods are now at their very best. Local grocers and supermarkets have plenty of locally grown vegetables to help us all serve the best dishes possible.
