Autumn, this beautiful season, when everything in the nature is meant to die…. only to be resurrected in the spring.
The season might be the best time to find a great variety of seasonal products and herbs. These are the days, when we go around muddy forest and leaf covered paths, searching for wild mushrooms and the last forest fruits.
The time, when we collect oysters along the coast, at tide, or just searching through the farmers markets, to sense the smell of baked apples, marinated pickles and dry charcuterie.

I want to present you two of my favourite autumn recipes for something fast and sweet: Pumpkin mousse and Stuffed apples with Marzipan.
