Spring into Springtime Food, suggests columnist Richie Stamp
I don't want to put a damper on how the weather has been
recently and 'jinx' how sunnier & warmer it has been recently, but it
really has put me in the mood for thinking of recipes & dishes for the
spring, fresh, cool & tantalising dishes that just bounce on the plate that

give a fresh sunny aroma, a taste'tastic sensation!
Hopes of dining in the garden, hoping we have more
opportunity this year than last. All those hopes for a great summer. But I love
when spring comes around. The season for food with colour. Yellow foods in particular
like Yellow Courgettes, Yellow Peppers bright & juicy making anything from
a simple Stir-fry to a warm tossed Salad more colourful to the eye. The bright
colour of a fresh egg yolk. Poached & slowly dripping on a toasted Bagel or
Muffin. Yellow as a Daffodil.
After what seems a long harsh winter, there are signs of spring
in the air. A trip around the food markets start to look more & more inviting.
Yes I know nothing foodie seems seasonal these days, but let's forget all that
processed manufactory stuff for now and image your back in the good days of
buying foods you haven't seen for a while because they haven't been in season.
Feel a bit of a springtime skip in your kitchen you might
want to start your day with a breakfast favourite of Eggs Benedict with some
Hollandaise Sauce, sproose it up with some Smoked Ham & a sprinkle of Cayenne
pepper. Lunch or a brunch dish of some Pan-Fried Fresh Sardines with a warm
salad of Chicory & Walnuts with some ribbons of Yellow Zucchini
(Courgette), drizzled with a Stilton Dressing, creamy & light. Makes for a
great dish to share with friend's.
Dine on a slow cooked leg of Lamb for your evening meal,
marinated & roasted in whole crushed Garlic Cloves with Fresh Rosemary,
again make a little medley of Vegetables with Greenbeans, Baby Sweetcorn, Mixed
Peppers cut into strips with added Garlic for a Springtime treat.
I can sense lots of great dishes coming up in the coming
season. Does feel good to have brighter mornings and it won't be long before we
have lighter nights too... Beautiful evenings in the garden with a chilled
glass of wine & some fresh home cooked foods.
