Ron Barcelo whip up a range of rum cocktails from the cool and refreshing to wind down the summer to the spicy cinnamon shots that will keep you warm and fill the air with the scent of Christmas soon to come.
The cooler weather makes us look forward to afternoon tea again and how better to enjoy tea than with freshly baked cakes. Kay Cassar makes a fantastic moist banana cake and Pippa Mattei finds some hidden blackberries on country walks and goes home to make blackberry muffins, scones with blackberry compote and an apple and blackberry crumble among other berry treats.

On the side she serves a cool yoghurt dip and a refreshing tabboleh.
