What’s in season now … Spring

spring vegetables 2

The transition from Winter to Spring is one of my favourite times of the year. There’s a real buzz in the year as nature and people alike slowly come out of winter hibernation and prepare for a beautiful summer ahead. It also means a whole crop of new produce to play with in the kitchen, enhanced by lighter cooking styles perfectly suited to warmer months.

 

There are plenty of new vegetable varieties coming into season, a few Winter crops that will still be available into early Spring, and also a more diverse selection of fruits than during Winter.

 

Here’s a list of what to look out for at Farmer’s Markets this Spring:

  • Asparagus
  • Artichokes
  • Blood orange
  • pears

 

To celebrate the new season, I’ve prepared a special dish: Roasted chicken with  spring vegetables and a Pinos Blanc jus
