Autumn Fruit Parcels


It’s almost November. Now it’s already the night when I come back from work. The beautiful and warm Indian summer seems long gone and has been replaced by grey and rainy days. The cold is starting to creep on. This year, our summer started in March, when we went travelling for a few months, and it lasted on and on. It felt like it was going to be an endless summer, and I didn’t want it to go away. But seasons change. As a goodbye to early autumn, I wanted to bake seasonal fruits. Just thinking of their smell cooking filling the kitchen makes me happy.

L’idée des papillotes des derniers fruits de saison est excellente !
