A good way to embrace the Autumn and Winter coming, is by taking part of what the seasons invites you to do.
So "summer will be back" will show some of the ways we love to be inspired by the seasons.
Now is the time to go mushroom hunting in the forest - or to visit your local organic grocery and bye some fresh mushrooms.
I'm not a mushroom expert, that is the reason why I have been doing a print with eatable mushrooms, to explore what is out there.But even so, i'm still not adventurous enough. Maybe "summer will be back" need to find an expert guide and go out in the forest and pick mushroom this weekend. The general rule about picking (anything in fact) is: If you're not sure what kind it is; dont eat it. That said there is a whole world waiting to be discovered out there.
You can buy this print here.
Anyway here is a fantastic recipe of Mushroom Risotto found here. Be inspired and cook your own Autumn embrace dinner.
Saute onion and mushrooms in oil and butter until soft.
Stir in rice and cook till transparent, add wine if it gets dry.
stir in 1 ladle of stock. Stir well, cover and simmer gently for several minutes or till rice looks dry.
