Here is our recipe for creamed corn with cumin and thyme.

savoy cabbage
Try cooking it in a little bit of oil with bacon and caraway seeds. Cook the seeds and bacon, then when the seeds start to pop, throw in the shredded, washed cabbage and sweat it down for 5 minutes.

calabrese broccoli

calabrese broccoli

For a great pasta and calabrese broccoli dish, cook your pasta in boiling salted water. While that is cooking, cook the calabrese for about 3 minutes in little florets, chop it up small and mix it with anchovies, chilli and garlic. Toss through the pasta once the pasta is cooked.

order calabrese broccoli from Riverford.


Leeks are back again. A good thing to do with them is cook them for a couple of mins in boiling salted water, cut them in half and then grill them on a griddle plate. Dress them with oil and lemon.

One head of fennel will go a long way. Slice it thinly and use through salads, cut into wedges and roast or try slow cooking it in olive oil until it goes soft and brown- that’s really nice with pork.
