Forget what Jon Snow says, winter is well and truly here. So it's time to dust off the slow cooker and get your chopping knives at the ready for some succulent winter feasts.
In the summer months we want fresh, bright flavours that quench our thirsts and don’t fill us up too much but the autumn and winter months call for depth of flavour that comes from slow cooking and layer upon layer of ingredients. Autumn is a time to turn inwards, to hunker down and happily potter about in the warmth of the kitchen. It’s made for bubbling crumbles and deep-filled pies, spiced cakes and gooey sticky toffee puddings. We want food that will comfort and warm us from the inside, just as these two beauties do.
As the temperature starts to drop and the autumn and winter months are upon us or fast approaching, our thoughts turn to comfort food.

As great value meals that can be made in advance and are easy to prepare and cook, they’re ideal for both weekday dinners and when entertaining.
