If you’ve ever wanted to know exactly when the asparagus season starts, this book is for you. If you like the idea of picking wild garlic but aren't quite sure where to begin, you’re in the right place. And if you’re looking for fantastic recipes that make the most of Britain’s finest seasonal produce every month of the year, we can definitely help you.
We’ve picked gooseberries in June, foraged cobnuts in October, caught cuttlefish in July and roasted venison in November. Along the way, we've learned how everything we see, eat and experience, from the height of summer to the depths of winter, is inextricably linked to the seasons.
To date, other food writers have only told half the story. It’s all very well knowing that crayfish are in season in May, but how much better to know how and where to catch them yourself? Spiced squash is the perfect Halloween dish, but so much more satisfying when you've picked your own pumpkin or spiced it with home-grown chillies.
Without learning more about seasonality and the impact it has on the world around us, "seasonal food" is only an abstract concept. So, Well Seasoned isn't merely a guide to seasonal eating but to seasonal living.
- A month-by-month guide to seasonal living;
- More than 70 seasonal recipes;
- Feature ingredients to enjoy;
- "Out and About" activities to explore;
- "Feasts and Festivals" to celebrate; and
- Comprehensive seasonality charts for fruit, vegetables,
meat & game, fish, herbs and hedegerows.
