Eating with the seasons

IMG_0327Eating seasonally can require new and exciting ways of eating and cooking. It means you get the best veg when it is ready, and when it is the tastiest it can possibly be. If you want your cooking to be next level, then you need veg that really tastes amazing. This is most obvious in crops like: carrots, tomatoes, apples, fennel, beetroot, radishes etc.

There are lots of cookery writers, weekend paper contributors and blogs on the internet covering seasonal veg. For books I love Anna Jones, and own all three of them.
For blogs I like Thug Kitchen, Green Kitchen Stories and Digging up the Dirt. The latter is written by a woman who farms in Oregon, and her original recipes showcase the less sexy vegetables.
