September Food and Wine in Provence
Diary of Giles MacDonough
It has been a crazy summer. After a scorching June in Britain, we had a cold July and August which picked up a bit at the end. The heat reappeared in September, climbing up again to a dizzy 35C in London. It is rare to see proper summer weather in September here but there was lots of record-breaking warmth this year, and it is not over yet. I am writing on 3 October and the BBC is telling me to expect sun well into next week, with the thermometer meant to touch 26C on Sunday.
