Eating seasonally: Winter

Well, it’s winter. Date-wise and temperature-wise.

Have you noticed the difference in what’s on offer at the markets? There is a different kind of abundance at this time of year; more nurturing foods make an appearance through the cooler months – but still plenty of yumtastic options!


  • Pears
  • Apples
  • Quince
  • Mandarins
  • Oranges
  • Pink grapefruit
  • Lemons
  • Kiwi fruit


  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Chicory
  • Avocado
  • Artichoke
  • Pumpkin
  • Ginger
  • Carrot
  • Beetroot
  • Turnip
  • Shallots
  • Fennel
  • Potato

We have been going completely nutty for mandarins at home … and I have been sneaking broccoli and kale into almost everything I cook at the moment.

What have you been enjoying through the change of season?
