Cooking with Tallyrand




a blackberry cobbler is a perfect comfort food and accompliment to a chilly autumn evening, after enjoying a stroll on the beach at dusk or a ramble through the beautiful English countryside gathering the fruit

but, if you cant get fresh berries, use other fruits like gooseberries, plums, peaches etc, or frozen berries or even a can of your favourite tinned fruit
