Good old British weather can't seem to make up its mind what to do these days. Sunshine one day, torrential down pours the next regardless of which month it is! Summer now appears to be a distant memory. It's almost time for children to go back to school, to reach for your furry coats and UGG Boots and get prepared for Autumn. So, here is our guide to The Four Seasons.
The phrase has been around for many hundreds of years. What do you think of when someone mentions The Four Seasons?
A favourite Friday night doughy treat, some prefer a Margherita others something hot and spicy like a meat feast. Can’t make up your mind? Go for a Four Seasons formally known in Italian as Le Quattro Stagioni. Each quarter of the pizza has a different topping with each one representing a season. Originally artichokes represent Spring, olives suggest Summer, mushrooms mean Autumn and ham hams it up (sorry!) as Winter.
