Simple and in Season – February Now Open

It was lovely to welcome back Simple and in Season to my blog – you can read the round-up of January’s seasonal recipes and posts here. I’m very pleased to be opening a new round for February – the linky is open at the bottom of this post.

Simple and in Season is monthly seasonal food blog event. This is a community event, open to anyone with an active blog. All you have to do is to write a blog post with a recipe incorporating any seasonal ingredient. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world, you can link up by telling us about anything that is seasonal to you – savoury or sweet. The event will stay open until Friday 28th February 2014, after which there will be a round up and a new link opened for March.

This month’s winner (chosen by my kids) will win a copy of Sophie Dahl’s book – From Season to Season.

What’s in season in the UK? Look out for cauliflower, celeriac, leeks, parsnips, PSB, oranges and rhubarb. Don’t forget you may still find some game and fish, such as haddock, mackerel and salmon can also be in season.

HERE’S A QUICK RE-CAP ON THE GUIDELINES:

  • All you have to do is come up with a dish using any seasonal produce you like (savoury or sweet) post it on your blog, add a link to this post mentioning Simple and in Season and linking to www.renbehan.com and then manually add the link to your post in the box below (via Simply Linked)
  • This round will run up until 28th February 2014. I will pick a winner shortly after (excluding myself obviously) and will include a round-up post including everyone who has entered.
  • You can take inspiration from anywhere – adapt a recipe from your favourite cookbook, try something from a magazine, make up your own creation or share a family favourite. The usual rules apply when using someone else’s recipe, please either get permission from the author to post it or adapt it in some way stating how/why you’ve changed it.
  • Include any seasonal produce you fancy including fruit, veg, herbs, meat or fish.
  • Link as many recipes as you like. You can link posts entered into other blog events or carnivals as long as it involves a seasonal food item (and fits in with their rules).
  • The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere. I’m happy to post prizes abroad and although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere.
  • By entering your link, you are giving me permission to add your photograph to the round-up. I will link back directly to your post when I include you.
  • If you have questions or problems, email me or leave me a comment in the comment box at the bottom of the post.
  • If you are on Twitter, tweet your link adding the hashtag #simpleandinseason or add me @RenBehan and I will re-tweet it.

There’s are lots more blog events that you can link up to, the more the merrier. Find out more at The Food Blog Diary. 

Happy cooking!

      It is – cabbage and brassicas maybe?! The hardy stuff, root veggies, too or berries if you froze any over the summer!

    Definitely entering this month! Love the idea of getting your kids to judge – might have to adopt this for some of the Family Foodies events! Great bookie prize too, one I don’t own :)

    Hi Ren

    I just added the wrong title to the linky. Although both recipes are on the same post, I wanted to submit my blood orange curd rather than the mini cakes – couldn’t delete it afterwards. Sorry!
