Seasonal Food and Flora


Here are some of our favourite seasonal recipes.

Asparagus, Tomato and Goat Cheese Frittata

This is one of our favourite weekend breakfasts. It comes together in minutes and uses up whatever leftovers we have from grilling earlier in the week, from mushrooms to asparagus; sometimes we even toss in the crumbled meat from a lonely Italian sausage. A... read more

Mixed Berry Scones

This recipe, very slightly adapted from Cook’s Country, is a winner. The tartness of the berries is offset beautifully by a touch of sweetness in the butter and honey glaze.   These American-style, big, shaggy scones are easy to make and fill the house... read more

Strawberry Rhubarb Torte

Strawberries and rhubarb are a classic combination for good reason. When strawberries are at their peak, their sweet flavour provides a fabulous counterpoint to the tart tanginess of rhubarb. Add in fluffy baked meringue, toasted almonds and a deliciously moist sponge... read more

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just... read more

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October.... read more
