Here at Chatham, a splash of spring sunshine has got our thoughts quickly turning to potential barbecues, al fresco dining and picnics on the beach – and with all this outdoor eating on the horizon, we thought it was a good idea to look at what foods are currently in season and ready to be devoured.
Modern day supermarkets mean that we're usually lucky enough to be able to get whichever foodstuffs we want, whatever the time of year, from somewhere in the world. But is there anything better than some fresh British produce grown in and around our own shores? Grab your boots and walk down to the woods for some foraging, or if your shoes are more tailored to the straw-strewn floors of the nearest farmer's market - pop down there instead.
Either way, if you’d like to get your tastebuds tingling this spring, here are a few tasty treats that are in season in April and May - and you might just find some of them in the supermarket too!
