In Season • January

Happy New Year! | For me, summer is all about barbecues and salads for weeknight meals. It’s also a month for entertaining, so I’ll be using some of the fabulous seasonal produce available to make some easy party dishes. Of course, January also includes Australia Day, where we get to celebrate everything this wonderful country has to offer, including of course our brilliant food!
