what’s in season

Living and eating by the seasons is important to me, so I will share my favorite seasonal fruit and veg.

Asparagus  – This sweet super food is in season in Britain for just a few short weeks. So grab those melt-in-the-mouth spears while you can and feast! Asparagus is one luxury you can afford.

Our quick and tasty tips: Try using perfectly cooked spears to dunk into soft boiled eggs. Or simply serve grilled with a drizzle of your best extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon juice and a grating of Parmesan.

Rhubarb – Long, thin and proudly pink, rhubarb is a great British favourite, versatile enough to both form classic ‘comfort food’ puddings and work extremely well with meat.

Our quick and tasty tips: Try making a crumble with a few pieces of of chopped up stem ginger. You can also poach rhubarb in orange juice and zest, cinnamon and a sprinkling of sugar and serve in a magnificent pavlova.
 You can simply mix poached rhubarb with double cream and spread inside a Victoria sponge.
