The BBC has a wonderful page of seasonal food broken down by month. Under each individual food, the site lists a variety of recipes to try out.

For November, they have listed chestnuts, cranberries, parsnips, goose, and beetroots. I love chestnuts when the weather starts getting chilly, so I tried out Nigella Lawson’s Brussels sprouts with chestnuts and pancetta. The recipe is very straightforward and a great way to twist a traditional side dish with new flavors. And because it includes pancetta, you could easily eat leftovers on their own for lunch.

You can find her complete recipe here. UPDATE: Looks like that link died. The same recipe is also here.
