The autumn/winter season is now well under way and with it comes the darker, colder nights. Whilst many people are flocking to the warmth of a local pub fire, we lucky stove owners needn’t stray further than the living room or kitchen.

Snuggle up with a slice of hot buttered toast, your favorite pair of slippers and enjoy a range of different soup and stew options. Great in a slow cooker for a low fuss dinner ready when you get home. You could even cook up a fresh batch on your wood burning stove if you want the full experience.

So, it’s not quite food but when a cup of tea just won’t quite do, we often turn to hot chocolate for the ultimate comfort drink. Leftover marshmallows from your s’mores recipe? Why not turn your hot chocolate into a luxury one! Settle down in front of the fire and take comfort that your biggest decision for the next hour is if you’re going to have another one.
Whether you’re planning a romantic evening, spending some quality family time at home or just keeping warm, your fireplace is the perfect spot to tuck into some homemade grub.
