Spring is an ideal season for both indoor and outdoor activities. The weather is warm but not sweltering, there’s a breeze but you don’t need a scarf. In terms of food, this season boasts the best of both worlds – you can still enjoy a heartwarming soup but during the day, salads begin to make a regular appearance again.
Plant those bulbs and seeds because spring is here and so is this produce guide!
As the weather grows warmer, we see the return of many of our favourite fruits! Melons reign supreme, two-for-one strawberries hit the shelves, and the beloved mango reappears. All of these things combined make ideal conditions for a picnic – we’re packing blueberries, honeydew melon, lychees, and papaya in our basket.
We mentioned picnic baskets and our fruit selection, but what about the veg? Let’s add some dips, vegetable crudités, and a fresh pasta and vegetable salad into the mix. Spring has an abundance of produce to offer so there’s no excuse not to be eating the rainbow this season!
We’re seeing the return of more fresh herbs and spices as the temperature rises. This season is also ideal for recipes that call for some extra love in the flavour department – dips, salads, marinades, pasta and more.
Hungry for more? Pay a visit to our seasonal eating guide – we’ve got your bases covered from the warmer to cooler months.
"One of the most important things I learnt was that change doesn’t have to be drastic. It can start small and evolve from there."
