Food In Season
“Seasonal, fresh, local and sustainable.”
Buying and using seasonally available produce on your menu has a number of key advantages. Firstly, food that is in season should be at its prime, good ingredients in means good results out. There should also be a price advantage; an abundance of a particular product should keep the price down. Buying produce in season, as close to home as possible has the added benefits of supporting your local economy, celebrating local foods which will add valuable provenance to your menu offer.
