The demand for eating food at its best has sparked a huge resurgence of interest in seasonal foods. Amy Willcock's Aga Seasons will show you how to cook and enjoy produce at its best, when it should be eaten, in harmony with farming calendars. In spring, Amy brings you perfect menus such as Milk-fed lamb with lavender, Balsamic roasted carrots and Panna cotta with rhubarb compote. The summer recipes are all perfect for long hot days and balmy evenings, making the most of seafood (Pan-fried scallops with chilli and lemon), vegetables (Baked baby beetroot) and even preserving a little bit of summer for the rest of the year in the ultimate Raspberry jam. Autumn brings Hallowe'en parties and delicious Squash soup with ginger, and enables you to make the most of a glut of apples with fantastic Caramelised apples. Ward off the chill in winter by taking advantage of all the (often forgotten) produce that this season has to offer: Tagliatelle with cavolo nero and garlic cream sauce, Cod and saffron kedgeree and Queen of Puddings. Accompanying the 180 recipes will be a comprehensive calendar for produce and a section on preserving so that you can enjoy the best of the harvest throughout the year. Written in Amy's simple, informative style, featuring conventional cooking instructions and with stunning colour photographs throughout, this is the culinary calendar no Aga owner should be without.
