What’s in season: January

Whats-in-season-January-feature

January is the perfect time to get experimental in the kitchen. We’ve all got our New Year’s Resolutions to eat better, eat organic, or eat fresh, and many of us also like to get creative with new recipes for the year too. To give you a helping hand, we’re sharing our top January recipes and the foods in season right now – helping you to dish up a delectable January feast!

Top food picks for January

As the winter months continue, root vegetables take centre stage providing the perfect base for hearty, rustic foods such as soups and stews. Furthermore, with all the over indulgence that the festive period brings, a few extra vegetables might just be in order. Some of our seasonal favourites include beetroot, cauliflower, celeriac, celery, kale, and mushrooms.

It’s not just the veggies we’ll be stocking up on though; it’s also a good idea to increase your fruit intake in the winter months for that immunity boost. In January a few slightly more exotic fruits start to come into season – including pineapple, pomegranate and passion fruit. These are perfect for puddings and fruit salads. However, more traditional favourites include apples, clementines, lemons, oranges and pears.

Whats in season January

While it’s tempting to fill up on comforting carbs in the winter months, you shouldn’t forget about that all-important protein. There are a fabulous range of meat, game, and seafood choices in January, the best being duck, goose, grouse, guinea fowl, turkey, langoustine, lobster and oysters. White fish also tastes fantastic at this time of the year, along with oily mackerel, mussels and cockles.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
