It’s Chriiiiiiissstmaaassss.Roy Wood, Wizzard
And so our year of seasonal food must come to an end. But not, may I add, without talking about its final month. Now, Christmas being Christmas, December’s ingredients have something of a festive feeling to them: turkey, goose, brussels sprouts, clementines and cranberries all feature. However, I would like to point out that they are festive because they happen to be in season at the right time, just as for my Australian cousins the smell of ripening mangos reminds them of Christmas. It’s all about what’s on hand locally at the time, and what is on hand locally at the time here can also be made into some satisfying winter salads to nourish the soul and cut through any rich food you may be eating.
