Although we can buy most types of food all year round, many so-called "fresh" products may have travelled thousands of airmiles to reach our shopping baskets. Food produced locally and marketed in season tastes better and is likely to be at its nutritional best, too. This book offers a delightful collection of no-fuss recipes from top Sydney cook Ross Dobson, featuring naturally produced foods at their peak of perfection. Here are suggestions for starters, salads, main meals and desserts that not only take advantage of top-quality food throughout the year but reflect the moods and atmosphere of the seasons. Savour the freshness of spring with Spicy Tofu and Crunchy Pickled New Vegetables; celebrate the arrival of summer with Strawberry Buttermilk Cake; take advantage of autumnal abundance and try the recipes for Wild Mushroom and Pork Pie or Pear Tiramisu; warm up with a Winter Vegetable Tagine. Ross tells you not only how to cook delicious seasonal meals but also how to find fresh produce. As he explains, the healthy way to buy food is to find in-season produce in outlets such as farmers markets.
