Yes indeed it’s that time of year already, when the food on your table needs to be just that little bit more warming and comforting.

What better way to welcome in the colder months then than a lovely stew, casserole, curry or pie? We have compiled a list of Jamie’s top favourites, to see you all the way through to the spring. There’s a beautifully rich Guinness lamb shank and Jools’ favourite beef stew, as well as a rich tagine.

Fish too is in its prime, especially the bits that make this amazing fish pie.

Let’s also not forget it’s also game season, so what better than an old-school venison pie?

Imagine these dishes waiting for you and your family at the end of a chilly winter walk – spot on!
