bare ingredients Easter 2018: recipes, cookery books, cook, foodie articles, seasonal ingredients and farmers markets

Summer is here for our readers in the Northern Hemisphere, with lots of warm to hot weather. This season puts me in the mood for salads and light dishes. It is also the time for dining al-fresco with family and friends, oicnics are bar-be-ques on the lovely warm evenings. What could be better?

Our Southern Hemisphere readers are in the middle of winter, which brings us together over soups and broths, curries and roasts and nights in enjoying the warm hospitality of dinner parties or a simple family meal.

Farmers and Food Markets

One of the great joys I have enjoyed is the pleasure I get visiting Farmers Markets and Foodie Markets. I have to say that I have been very lucky to have lived in cities that have has excellent markets, and they are a joy to visit for you never exactly know what treats you are likely to find at them. I have jotted a few down for my blog of foodie places, which can be found at Farmers and Foodie Markets.

Seasonal Recipe Ideas

Sarah's Seasonal Recipe List has been updated with great ideas, which can be found on our Recipes page. Also, we have the April's guide to the best seasonal produce. It is our "What to eat now" guide for those who are looking to get the most out of their local ingredients. There are Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere articles.
