Now that autumn is upon us it’s time to relax and spend the evenings indoors and making warm, filling, home-cooked meals and enjoy the simple pleasure of eating a meal with those that you love.
There’s nothing that makes you feel quite as warm inside than an evening in the kitchen, cooking a meal that you’ve never tried.
We asked Kara Letts, entrepreneur, mother of 3 and owner of the Orangery sustainable farm and estate retreat, what she likes to cook, and she has provided a selection of her favourite inspiring yet simple recipes that you can easily cook at home for yourself.
When Kara cooks, she cooks with the seasons and to reflect this she has chosen recipes that are made with the Tamworth pigs that The Orangery raises. Kara’s Tamworth pigs have such an extremely succulent taste due to the natural way in which they are raised.
All of these recipes have been created by top chefs and will make those winter evenings in even more enjoyable for the whole family.

How to make it perfect?
What is the secret to success when cooking these recipes? For Kara it is all about the ingredients, particularly the Tamworth Pig meat, quality that can be found in sustainable rare breed farm like The Orangery, where pigs are allowed to grow naturally in an outdoor environment, producing tender and flavoursome meat.
