Eating and cooking in autumn

Nights are getting longer and temperatures start dropping. We’re not yet at the freezing cold of Winter, but the exhausting heat of Summer is also gone.
Personally, Autumn is my favourite season of the year, especially the time just following the Autumn Equinox when the sun is still shining but the days become crispy and fresh.

Eating and cooking in spring

Flowers, cool breeze, butterflies, more flowers, and for the unlucky: seasonal allergies! Spring is here and that means food is changing. Gone are the heavy stews that kept us warm through winter and fresh salads start to slowly creep in.
Even though the thought of Spring usually brings to mind fields of flowers and green shoots, the amount of fruit and vegetables available is not a lot. Flowers haven’t yet turned to fruit and most of those green shoots are not yet ready to be picked, but there are some interesting things around.
