May – Food in Season

The star of this month is British asparagus – freshness is all, so if you can buy it direct from the grower so much the better.  New potatoes should have come down in price and the first baby broad beans will be ready before the end of the month. Sea Trout, although expensive, would make the perfect meal.  Many have always considered it superior to Salmon and now that wild Salmon is so rare, Sea Trout has certainly taken the crown.  In the wild look out for St George’s mushrooms at the start of the month and the widely available Elderflower at the end.
