Enjoy.

Eating in Season this Winter

Eating in Season this Winter

Eating seasonably fresh fruit and vegetables, is synonymous with the guidelines of the ‘Mediterranean Diet’ which is not as much of a diet, but rather a lifestyle that we can all strive to live by. During the upcoming weeks, my kitchen is going to be filled with winter fruit and veg so that I can cook up a few of my winter favourites: roasted vegetable trays, hearty soups, homely curries and stews, and warm baked goodies!
