Eat the Seasons "... aims to promote an understanding of food seasons. Each week we list the seasonal foods that are at their peak, and share enlightening facts, useful tips and enticing recipe ideas picked from the web and our favourite books." It's a nicely designed site, too, encouraging everyone to eat more local, seasonal food in a positive way. Besides the immediate benefits of enjoying fresher and more nutritous produce, other good reasons to do so include the reduction of energy (and associated CO2 emissions) used for growing and transporting food, price (you pay a premium on shipped food), supporting local farmers, and (especially for city dwellers) a way to reconnect with nature's cycles. Bon appétit!
