Food in Season

Food in Season

New this month: 

British strawberries are coming to an end, but raspberries are reaching their peak, particularly those from Scotland, and are plentiful, and have more flavour, than those earlier in the season. 

Sea Trout should still be sought out if spotted on fishmonger’s slabs, and with the extreme price demanded for wild salmon, it’s a delicious treat – and even preferred by many people to the latter. 

Other food in season is as follows -
