What’s in season: June

whats in season june

The summer season sees us craving lighter dishes, full of flavour, mirroring that we’d expect to indulge in while holidaying in the Mediterranean. It’s time to say goodbye to heavy roasts and those spring stews and hello to exotic salads, vibrant ingredients and lighter bites.

Veggies and accompaniments

When it comes to early summer vegetables it’s time to embrace the courgette, radish and cavolo nero. The sweet crunch of carrots also make a welcome addition to your June recipes, as do more exciting ingredients like fennel, artichokes and kohl rabi.

Of course, the start of the summer season wouldn’t be complete without a light salad. Lamb’s lettuce in particular is good for this season and adds interest to your dish with its distinctive and tangy flavour.

The June dish is also all about those little extras – we’re talking about herbs and leaves that add all that much-loved flavour and make a great replacement for winter spices. Mint, oregano, parsley, sage, sorrel and tarragon are all worth experimenting with and can make a huge difference to a relatively ordinary dish.

Summer fruits

Of course, with the summer sun out and encouraging plant growth there’s also an abundance of fruit to enjoy. Watermelon, strawberries and cherries are our favourites and great to enjoy post- dinner or in a refreshing mid-morning smoothie.

The perfect protein

While meat and poultry is still very much enjoyed by many in the summer it’s really the best time for seafood. Sea bass, trout, and mackerel all come into season around June and bring with them tons of flavour and health benefits. Easy to season and great for that summer barbecue, it’s well worth swapping that beef burger for a piece of succulent, grilled fish. There really is no better time to enjoy it!

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.
