What’s in season – August

14 Aug

Inspired by Brendan MacNeill’s wonderful photograph of runner beans from my garden, here is what’s in season, with emphasis on what’s available locally. Be inspired!

Runner Beans

Runner Beans

Vegetables and Fruit

Beetroot (look out for the wonderful yellow,  orange and striped varieties), chard, cherries (a few still available on the farmers’ market from Perth); courgettes, fennel, gooseberries, runner beans, raspberries, tomatoes (check out all the wonderful heritage varieties), potatoes, onions and from further afield, apricots, nectarines, peaches and melons.

Meat and Fish

Crab, langoustines, plaice, scallops (look out for hand dived),  John Dory, poultry (Poussin, duck and chicken spotted at the farmers’ market), lamb, squid

Also look out for delicious cheeses, including mozzarella and ricotta if you’re lucky!
