    Celebrate Spring

    Spring dawns and with it an awakening of our mood and senses. Shoots and leaves are emerging, and we’re greeted by a host of fresh vegetables rearing their heads after a long winter. It’s always a joy to see the first rhubarb, delicate peas, spring leeks, and asparagus. It’s also a time to savour spring treasures that are in more fleeting supply—such as fiddleheads, ramps, (delicate, yet spicy) salad turnips, and nettles. It’s like greeting old friends you haven’t seen in a while, a chance to savour their abundance and the health benefits they provide. Spring is a symbolic new beginning, which makes it a great time to learn something new in the kitchen. Whether it’s tackling an artichoke, something that always seemed too daunting, or finally experimenting with a vegetable you’ve admired but never dared to try, read on. Now’s the perfect time. These six spring-inspired recipes will help you get creative in the kitchen while helping you celebrate the bounty of nature. Welcome the optimism that spring brings.
