For Food Connections 2016, I'm going to explore what a seasonal diet might look like. There has been household rebellion about the proposal that we ONLY eat seasonally (or to be blunt, concerns have been raised about the ramifications of eating too much asparagus in one week). So I can't promise to ONLY eat seasonal produce but I'd like to explore what an April-May diet might look like if we weren't dependent on vast Dutch & Spanish glasshouses to feed us. In practice, I think that'll mean looking at what might still be in the food store - dried, frozen, preserved & pickled things from last year's harvest - as well as seeing what can be bought that's UK-grown outdoors (or without extra heat & lighting).
