Spring into summer with good green earthy flavours Add to ...

The first morel I ate was in an omelette in a little village inn in France. The woodsy flavour and interesting texture lingered, and since then morels have been a part of my food life.

They have recently arrived for a short fresh season as foragers bring them into farmers’ markets. Combined with newly picked asparagus, they make a tasty starter to this late-spring meal. Follow the asparagus with grilled lamb strewn with mint salsa verde.

Weekend Menu

Mint, anchovies, garlic and capers are the go-to accompaniments for lamb. The perfect spring dessert is fresh local strawberries, lightly sugared and served with crème fraîche.
