With Autumn well and truly on the way and the clocks set to give us darker nights in the not too distant, our natural instinct to hibernate and comfort eat is definitely going to kick in. For me, at this time of year suppers are all about cooking rich, hearty food with a big glass of vino in hand obvs. This weekend I’m road testing a spiced beef kofte recipe courtesy of the lovely folk over at my local provisions store Ruby & Kind.

Tip: Make the kofte and refrigerate 30 minutes before cooking if you have time. This will allow the fat to cool and stop the kofte from shrinking when cooked.

With thanks to Ruby & Kind for the provisions and their sister company The Original Supper Box Company for the super easy to follow recipe.
