That wonderful sense of anticipation as we teeter on the edge of the most bountiful time of the year.
Some pretty fine weather has worked wonders with the early asparagus crop. There's Jersey Royals, Cornish Earlies and some damn fine tomatoes. Broccoli in crisis, those New Year Spanish floods cast a long shadow.
After a very difficult couple of months it really does feel like the worst is behind us and there’s a lot to look forward to. The first early spring produce is arriving and supplies from growers in Southern Europe are much improved.
Citrus superstars abound this month and the veg crisis isn’t quite as bad as it was. We say Hurrah for parsley root and sweet potatoes and are cheered by the odd glimmer of spring.

Christmas menus were written ages ago so this month we look at what you should be using in the new year. What are the ingredients that’ll make your January menus sparkle and save you money?
