WHAT’S IN SEASON ?

 

Today of course you can eat what you like more or less all the year round and out of season prices are becoming much more reasonable.

AUGUST

Reject Lord Byron’s terse comment on ‘The English winter – end in July, to recommence in August’.  Think rather with the Song of Solomon that ‘the rain is over and gone … the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with tender grape give a good smell.  Arise…… my fair one and come away’.

 

This is indeed the month to be right out of the kitchen and away, doing as little as possible for meals.  In August you need to take advantage of being out and away on picnics, when cold rabbit pies, savoury flans and fish moulds or mousses can be cooked or prepared ahead and stored in the refrigerator or freezer.  It is the month for using all those foods with preparation already done, or the multitude of inexpensive soft fruits and salad vegetables which need no cooking at all.

 

Game is fully on the menu again – venison from the beginning of August, grouse from August 12th.  Most other game starts slightly later – at the beginning of September.  Lamb is also worth a look – particularly locally grown and reared lamb – tasty
