What’s good in May?
Spring lamb is at its very best right now. It is so tender that it can be cooked in many different ways – roasted, grilled or fried. Try a roasted rack with a herb crust.
Watercress is fantastic in a salad, with its distinctive peppery taste. It also makes really good soup. Use it in place of basil to make pesto. Watercress sauce is delicious with fish, especially salmon.
Crab is also at its best right now. We can order crab meat for you if you ask in the shop. Make crab cakes, a crab tart, or try a crab and watercress salad. It is also delicious with pasta – try a crab linguine with garlic, parsley, chilli and lemon
