What’s the trick to whipping up splendidly delicious food? Any chef worth their salt will tell you that the secret rests with the call of the seasons.
Ever find yourself a bit flummoxed trying to figure out what it means to cook in season? Where to start, what to reach for? You’re not alone. Come share the day with us and we’ll help de-code what it means to cook seasonally so that it becomes a more natural part of your life. Not only will we work through a menu that truly reflects the best things in bloom all around us right now, we’ll walk you through an easy-to-reference guide that describes the what-when-and-how of it all because we understand that knowing what to reach for in the shops is as important as learning how to cook with them well. We’ll not only show you how to push the natural, shining qualities of seasonal produce to the top of the bill (regardless of what’s in season), we’ll:
- Break down how cooking seasonally in fact means cooking locally
- Explore the versatility and role of ‘all-season’ staples
- Explain how you can thoughtfully work outside the what’s-in-season picnic basket and still make all of your efforts count
At the end of the day, it’s not about adhering to a strict formula because we really don’t want this to just be a one-day affair. It’s about following pathways already set before us and making smart compromises so that we’re able to better respect the environment in our daily habits, taste the delicious difference every time we cook, and not break the bank along the way! Now there’s a sustainability plan that we can get behind. Cheers to that!
