Salad Days

More and more English vegetables are becoming available and to accompany the asparagus we now have a lot of deliciously fresh salad items; little gems, baby carrots, spring onions, cucumbers, sprouted beans and spinach. All grown in England. Which is very timely as Gordon Ramsay was on the news this morning promoting seasonal produce! Now we just need the sun to start shining again and will be all set for picnicking by the Thames.

May Day

Yesterday way May Day and the official start of the British Asparagus season. Right on schedule I took delivery of my first batch of local asparagus! Grown 3.5 miles from the shop and delivered within hours of being picked. You can’t get much fresher!
