Seasonal recipes for June
Here’s where the magic happens – what to do with all this seasonal produce in your kitchen
This dish just says summer salad all over it. It’s zingy, satisfying and highlights the best fresh produce of the month.
There are many great ways to enjoy artichokes, but we love this recipe for Paella Roja – we think it sums up summer evenings perfectly.
At this time of year, we fill this recipe up with handfuls of fresh chard. If you grow it yourself then you’ll know that you can’t eat the stuff fast enough and this dish is an ideal way to make it taste great.
Because cake tastes great at any time of the year, why not load it up with seasonal cherries? We certainly will be.
All that’s left to do now is pick a recipe and get to your local market!
