There are many benefits to eating seasonally, not least that seasonal produce is a real culinary treat for the tastebuds. By enjoying produce when it is in season, we fall in with Mother Nature's natural, and intended, culinary calendar! It tastes the best and it is the cheapest - naturally, the supply of seasonal fruit and veg, will outweigh demand, especially if their is a good harvest. Why wouldn't you go with the seasons?

Squash is a very under used ingredient and has lots of flavour. This recipe is one of the best ways to use it. Make sure you peel the squash well and remove all the seeds. If you have any cooked chestnuts around they are a delicious addition to this soup. The pancetta is there for extra flavour but it works perfectly well with out it. Have a great Christmas!
Just recently there has been an array of injuries to squash players. Nick Matthew had his knee operated on before the Commonwealths, world number four Joelle King will be out for months after an achilles operation, and Ramy Ashour has missed several events because of his troublesome hamstring. And these are the more major ones...
Few personal memories of Glasgow will be as strong as the first day of the squash event. I walked in to Scotstoun, the venue for the tabletennis and squash, for the first day, the round of 64. Glancing in to the main arena to see the previous matches I was hit by walls of applause.
I lost to Nick Matthew in the gold medal match in the men's and Peter Barker won bronze, making it a clean sweep of English medals.
What a welcome we received the weekend before last for the French League Playoff finals in Le Mans, a city a couple of hours train ride from Paris. Now on the wrong side of 30, I am happily able to say that squash still offers opportunities to seek out new venues and bustling sporting communities in unexpected places.
