What’s in season: February

As we embrace the last of the cold temperatures it’s a good idea to stock up on hearty foods that are full of flavour. Although filling and satisfying, most of our favourite February foods are healthy too – keeping you feel full while still sitting perfectly alongside your 2016 diet.

Go for root vegetables

Root vegetables are a great option at this time of the year. Potatoes, celeriac, swede and turnips all taste great and add bulk to your dishes. Horseradish, chicory, shallots and black truffles also start to come into season making for some interesting vegetarian options too.

Add a touch of summer with zesty fruits

Kiwi fruit, passion fruit, clementines and pomegranate are just some of the February fruits you might like to experiment with. If you prefer the more traditional staples, why not opt for pears and bananas, which taste great the majority of the year.

Opt for light fish dishes….

From langoustine, oysters and scallops through to skate, lemon sole and mackerel, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to seasonal fish.

…or indulge in a bit of game

If you prefer a meat main why not opt for game? Guinea fowl, hare, mallard, partridge and venison are all highly desirable at this time of year.
