I'm not a fanatic about home decoration, but I do like to create a little autumn atmosphere in my home. I do this with 'living' objects such as pumpkins, flowers and autumn fruit.
I also start lighting scented candles again to perfume my home and create a warm and cosy atmosphere.
There is also an object that marks the beginning of the cold season in my house: a very warm blanket with orange colours. My partner teases me about it. When he sees me put it on the sofa he says "OK, now autumn can begin!".
Although I prefer to stay indoors during the cold season, autumn is a time when I love walking in nature. Seeing how the colours of the leaves change day by day and the air gets colder and colder makes me feel really good.
Unfortunately, there is not much nature around my house, but it is only a few kilometres by car to reach really nice places where you can enjoy the autumn.
I love collecting chestnuts with my dad, just like when I was little.
Unfortunately, we live far away, but every year I try to reach him to keep this tradition alive.
Autumn in Italy is a triumph of colours, flavours and smells. I think it is the richest season in terms of smells. The smell of pumpkin cooking in the oven, roasted chestnuts in the streets of the city centre, grape must at village festivals.
I love it all.
I love pumpkin. I eat it all year round, to tell you the truth, partly because I live in an area where pumpkins are very well produced.
Pumpkins can be stored all year round.
My grandmother tells me that she used to put them in straw to make them last all winter.
With pumpkins you can make a thousand recipes, both sweet and savoury. I make cakes, soups, baked, steamed, put them in omelettes, in rice, make a puree that I eat as a snack.
I love grapes and chestnuts.
I love the first apples when they ripen, which I can use to make a cake or a simple puree with sultanas and cinnamon.
Autumn is also the best time for mushrooms. I like to cook them simply stewed, with tomato and onion to go with a hot polenta (yellow maize flour - a typical Italian dish) with cheese. What a delight!
And do you like autumn? How do you live this season in your country? What are the traditions? I am curious to know! Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
