Passionfruit Cordial And Weekend Reading List

I am amazed that we still have a steady trickle of plump passion fruit at the markets. I am also amazed that we are still wearing skirts and tank tops when autumn has almost gone. Maybe the two are related. Maybe it was the wrong year to buy a very chic, very warm...
