The sun is shining and Summer is definitely on its way- during May we’ll be making the most of the two bank holidays by enjoying seasonal food and spending time outside. Discover more in our May Musts >
This month we’re harvesting some of our favourite Spring vegetables to make into tasty, fresh treats. According to the National Trust, Asparagus, spinach and rhubarb should all be harvested and enjoyed in May.
Our favourite recipe comes from blogger and chef Heather Christo and combines fresh asparagus, melted brie and crispy prosciutto all grilled on top of rustic bread. Serve with a fresh rocket salad or runny poached eggs on our Casa Earthenware Sets and enjoy!
Using fresh garden ingredients like rhubarb and strawberry, blogger Gourmande In the Kitchen has created a fresh, fruity and seasonal iced tea drink.
We recommend pouring a cool, tall glass of this tasty tea and relaxing outdoors on our Provence Furniture.
