Eating seasonal food is the best way to be sustainable, and to ensure that you taste the full variety of foods that our brilliant country has to offer. This month we have the full bounty of Autumn to choose from, whether that's seasonal greens, a variety of game meats or wonderful red fruits that are perfect for making jams with. One thing you won't be able to avoid are pumpkins, which will be everywhere this month thanks to the looming spectre of Halloween (see what we did there?). If you're making lanterns with the kids, or your colleagues, then we suggest making a delicious pie with the filling, American-style. Speaking of America, why not carve your pumpkin to resemble Presidential candidate Donald Trump? The pumpkin lid makes the perfect detachable hairpiece...

Our pick for this month, however, is the humble wild mushroom. It may sound boring but this simple ingredient can enliven any dish, from steak and kidney pie to homemade sourdough pizza. Mushrooms are also pretty good as the main event - for example one of the world's best comfort foods has to be mushrooms in cream on toast, especially if you add a splash of truffle oil! Because of its earthy flavours mushroom dishes pair very well with Stobi's red wines, for example our award winning Stobi Syrah Barrique 2013, particularly if the mushrooms are part of a meat dish or stew. We hope you don't mind our giving you one word of caution, however: if you're going foraging for wild mushrooms for the first time, please do consult a guidebook or the internet first! Not all mushrooms are tasty, and some are deadly! Watch this great review about the Stobi Syrah too!
