It's that time of year again, the last few weeks of the British Summer are upon us. In my opinion, we've had a very good run this year, with plenty of days when the usual chatter over the weather (the thing us Brits do so very well) with friends and family, and even the occasional stranger (because it's put you in such a good mood) have been all "OH MY GOD IT'S SO HOT", "Hasn't the weather been amazing?" and then the "I mean, I know we shouldn't complain but I'm actually TOO hot", "I shouldn't wish it away but I think I'm ready for jumpers and coats now", and yes at times even I may have been a culprit in saying all of the above. However, we MUST embrace like we have never embraced before and suck up the last of the Summer while it's still hanging around, especially when it comes to food.
Who in their right mind doesn't love, and wholeheartedly so - jumping on the Al fresco dining train. We have all been there when the seasons first change (take yourself back to the first noticeably warm day when you got a whiff of your neighbours BBQ)...it made you want to put your flip-flops on, suck on an ice pole and get the paddling pool out? But mostly, to eat outside right!? RIGHT. Well, all is not over yet.
