fruit & veg - get the best
Plan your meals around seasonal fruit and vegetable then where you can freeze and preserve to use in the off season.
1 Seasonal is the best – yes it’s obvious and needs to be always considered
2 Summer and warmer months enjoy everything above ground – think tomatoes and garden vegetables
3 Winter and cooler months celebrate everything underground – think carrots and parsnips
4 Do as little as possible to good ingredients – if it’s a perfect vine ripened tomato – just slice and serve. Forget complicated recipes to make it into a mousse or timbale just serve the beautiful tomato as is.
5 Cook summer vegetables on the BBQ – think asparagus and sliced courgettes and when still hot drizzle with your favourite vinaigrette and top with crumbled feta cheese – delicious – do not place in fridge – serve at room temperature.
