Thank you to all of you who entered and supported Simple and in Season February – there were some lovely seasonal creations, which I’ll be rounding up very shortly. In case any of your are super-keen, here’s the link up for March. This month, I’ve already been busy roasting my rhubarb (forced rhubarb is now in season in the UK) – look out for rhubarb from Yorkshire for the best variety. My own entry for the month will be coming up very soon – I’ll be sharing my roasted rhubarb and ginger curd pancakes, in time for Shrove Tuesday. March is a really exciting month for fresh produce, as spring is hopefully allowed to provide us with a change to some of the hardier winter veg we’ve all be eating. Look out for blood oranges, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach and spring onions, as well as hake and lemon sole, if you’re a fish lover.
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 Monday 31st March, after which there will be a round up and a new link opened for April.
This month’s winner (chosen by my kids) will win a copy of Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less. Don’t forget, you can also keep up with my weekly blog posts over on JamieOliver.com for extra inspiration!

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 31st March 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.
