In Season | July

cauliflower soup

JULY | Warm and filling … Our long-ago ancestors, living in caves as many of them did, used to retain extra fat on their bodies in winter. This was nature’s way of insulating them against the colder weather and also protecting them from a scarcity of food.

In this day and age, in this country, where most of us have access to heat on tap and plenty of food, it’s hard to sustain the argument that we need to lay down fat for the winter. But boy, nature is a hard force to argue with. There’s something compelling and ancient about the idea of huddling in the warmth and filling up on hearty, satisfying food.

This month I am drawn to beautiful root vegetables, slow roasted garlic, medicinal and delicious ginger and lemon, and warm winter puddings.
