Winter is a beautiful time to slow down, enjoy quite moments and prepare for spring which is just around the corner. It won’t come as a surprise that for all of your amazing producers it’s been a dry winter and they’re eagerly looking at the sky for rain. So what does this mean when it comes to filling our fridges and fuelling our bodies?

Here are’s our pick of this seasons harvest

Broadbeans – the season on these guys is just beginning. They make a mean salad or delicious snack. If you’re stuck for ideas check out this amazing salad from Ottolenghi.
