In Season February

I spent the start of February in the highlands of Scotland with my family. Rather than the warm glow of a February sun indicating that Spring is round the corner we were blasted with arctic air and snowed in. I love snow though and getting to spend a full week with my family and watching Rowan playing with his cousins was blissful.

Having spent two weeks in a row away I’m taking things slowly today, doing the washing, cleaning up after the building work which was done in our house and baking fresh bread. I left my sourdough starter up in the highlands so I have ordered a new one, rather than making my own from Bread Matters.

I love February as it hails the start of the rhubarb season. First comes the intense pink forced rhubarb which looks beautiful and tastes delicious. I wish I had a rhubarb patch in our garden as I eat so much of it but only when it is the British rhubarb season. Two of my favourite ways to eat rhubarb is roasted in vanilla or baked in a cake.

I hope you enjoy my in season guide to February!
