• The Hungry Gap

    You don’t hear much talk about it these days, but the ‘hungry gap’ is a long-standing description of the period between mid April and early June when British farms have finished the winter crops, but aren’t yet ready with the Spring ones. It is traditionally the time of year when the quantity and variety of food is at its lowest, which can seem very strange when the sun is shining, and the ...

  • What to eat on St George’s Day

    We have many Saint’s days in these islands, and the one that comes along this week on April 23rd, Saint George’s day, normally heralds the start of the summer: cricket replacing football, and long evenings spent outside in the (we hope) sunshine.
