Seasonal recipes for April
Now for our favourite bit – what to do with all this seasonal produce in the kitchen
This salad is both light and filling – its sweet glazed carrots and onions, garlic infused oil and crispy herby barley come together to create the only dish you really need this spring
Would this be a seasonal menu without some spring greens? We think not. This crisp pastry, a creamy filling and fresh, tender veg – perfection
Because roasted potatoes are perfect for any time of year, let’s be honest!
Throw in whatever needs using up and we guarantee that it will taste delicious.
Now all that left to do is get to your local market and start cooking!
