If you are really keen on preparing your soup from scratch, then the autumn is the time to buy fresh chestnuts.

Tomato Chutney with Parmesan Crisps

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Chutney! The word conjures up autumn and the one season when work expended earlier in the year promises a welcome abundance of fruit and vegetables. So here goes for a sharp and tasty autumnal treat.

Pain Bagnat Salad in a Sandwich

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This is a bit of a cheat, not really cooking at all, unless you count boiling the beans and the quail's eggs. Traditionally it is regarded as a lunchtime filler for hungry workers in the fields, probably washed down with a jug of robust local wine.

Mussel and Tomato Stew

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

This sauce is really the dish. You could use it with pasta or with any white fish but here we use mussels

Apricot and Vanilla Jam

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Sometimes eating a fresh apricot is a little disappointing, but when the flavour intensifies through the jam making process, then I think it is out there on its own. The season for fresh apricots comes and goes before you know where you are, but if you are lucky enough to land on a glut of this rather unusual fruit, it's well worth making a decent quantity of jam.

Salted Pineapple

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

Using salt as a crust for food is intended to preserve as perfectly as possible the original flavour of the food.

Mediterranean Green Bean Salad

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

A lovely healthy salad, served hot, warm or cold and very simply made.

Mushroom and Herb Omelette

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

With some lovely free-range eggs, it's the simplest of meals, but none the worse for that.

Ravioli of Pumpkin and Mushroom

From: Trish's French Country Kitchen

At home in Ireland, we think of pumpkins only in connection with the ghosts and ghouls of Halloween, but in Provence it's a highly regarded autumn speciality.
