In Season • June

Winter is Here!

Winter is officially here and the thing I love most about winter is the feeling of hibernation, of rushing home to be with my family in the warmth to put on fluffy slippers and have a cup of tea.

I always enjoy getting into the kitchen and steaming up the windows with long, slow braises and soups in the stock pot.

As the days get shorter and the nights smell of woodsmoke and damp leaves, summer seems light years away.

But that’s ok because we’re having veal osso bucco for dinner tonight and that makes everything right with the world!
