Falling temperatures refocus attention on traditional pleasures - think decadent chocolate desserts. This is more like a mud cake than a traditional chocolate cake.

This winter soup is super quick to make as the legumes are already cooked. A great addition for the soup is pesto or thinly sliced prosciutto folded through.

A simple hunter-style chicken dish is great, as it's just set and forget. All the time is in the slow cooking. I love olives in it, although they're not really traditional.

Soft polenta goes well with any braise. The taleggio gives it a rich and distinctive flavour. If you're not a fan of smelly cheeses, leave it out - but it would be a terrible shame.

This simple chowder gets its thickness from the pureed beans and potato. If you prefer a chunkier soup, don't puree it.

This braised bean dish makes a lovely base for crumbed fish. I've used John Dory, but any thinly sliced fish can be crumbed and fried. Prawns also taste great.

Indulge with this creamy dessert that surprises with a vegetable base. I've used Queensland Blue in this recipe; you can use other pumpkin varieties for this tart, just make sure they're sweet.

You can replace the farro with other grains such as barley, oats or quinoa; boiled wild rice is great, too.

Heat and spice come to life in a noodle broth boasting big, beefy flavours. While the broth recipe may seem complicated, it isn't. Once you make it, you'll be addicted.

Aromatic herbs give this good basic risotto recipe a lift. For a tasty variation, try adding boiled zucchinis with a teaspoon of chilli flakes. Chilli also goes well with the peas.

Begin preparing the onions for this dish the night before. This dish is lovely served with roasted potatoes or pumpkin - it's also really nice with boiled broccolini.
