Thread: Favourite seasonal food

  1. #1

    Favourite seasonal food

    What is your favourite seasonal food? Can be a fruit, veg, or protein. Also counts if its available all year but only the best are available for a short time....for example fresh soft shell crab is one of my favourites which are available year round-frozen but short season for fresh.

    Also for the chefs out there, how do you keep track of what is going in and out of season? Talking with suppliers/farmers markets/etc or you just 'know'?

    Wondering if anybody found a website / list that has this kind of stuff mapped out in a neat way, like an infographic. I can imagine one in my head and it would make a neat poster.

    Just found a couple after searching (infographics).

    Both are not really what imagined but...neat anyways.

    Seasonal cherries and the slaughter of lamb in the fall.

    When I lived in Germany I was putting money into a little money bank all year for asparagus season - nothing better than fresh white asparagus between mid May and mid June in Germany and France. I try to eat seasonal in Hawaii also, but so much stuff seems to be in season somewhere at any given time... But local mango and melons come to mind.

    Hood strawberries are unlike any other, they are on a whole different plane!

    Forgot to mention: ground cherries and a good radish (dipped in salt).

    Right now, I"m eating about half a dozen oranges a day at work.

    I want to have a seasonal delight in my life at all times! It's my hobby, really, eating.

    First one that pops into my exhausted brain is King Rustic Potatoes because I was talking about them. Best dang potatoes I've had.

    OH and Rahr and Sons Brewery Bourbon-Barrel aged Winter Warmer beer.
