Welcome to the March 2014 Edition

bare ingredients: recipes, cookery books, cook, foodie articles, seasonal ingredients and farmers markets


Shrove Tuesday, which this year is on the 4th of March, is a special day where I would make pancakes for the family. I still remember my mum making them, the smell of the butter as it deftly applied to the crÍpe pan and the smell of the batter cooking as mum rolled the pan to spread it to a thin peice of heaven. I still love pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, and I am pleased to say that my daughters love them, too.

Pancake Book Review


Sarah's Seasonal Recipe List has been updated with great ideas, which can be found on our Recipes page. Also, have the March guide to the best seasonal produce. It is our "What to eat now" guide for those who are looking to get the most out of their local ingredients. There are Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere articles.


This month see four new book reviews for you to enjoy. The first is Food of Spain by Claudia Roden. If there is such a thing as an instant classic, then Claudia has achieved it with this lovely book. Then, we have Edible Selby by Todd Selby, more left field that the others, but is a great view into the world of trendy, substainable food businesses from around the world. Jerusalem by Yotem Ottolenghi needs little introduction, say that it is a facinating insite into the culenary infulences on both Yotem and Sami. Finally, we have Chui Lee Luk's wonderful Green Pickled Peaches and other stories, a book that is full of lovely stories and beautiful recipes.
