In between those April showers, spring has well & truly arrived in the kitchen as we start to see a lot more colour return.

Whilst the forced rhubarb season is coming to a close this month, we’re not far away from the greener stalks of outdoor grown rhubarb, which is great in jams, chutneys, crumbles & cakes.

April sees the return of all our favourite spring greens to our plates, think spring onions, rocket, sorrel, spinach, samphire & British grown asparagus is coming into it’s own alongside jersey royal new potatoes & carrots.
