Any excuse...

When you live in London, the shift in seasons can be pretty hard to determine. But when it becomes too cold to sit in a beer garden for longer than a pint, you know autumn's on its way. Here are some photos from the last meals of summer.

A vegan barbeque with herby olive oil potato salad, corn on the cob, roasted sweet peppers and plenty of vegan sausages. One of my favourite revelations of summer is just how easy it is to have a vegan barbeque!

Then a final gin and tonic with bruschetta on grilled ciabatta -I added capers to cut through the gin and tonic. Perfect to wash away the last of summer.
