Seasonal Flavors

This past week I've really been enjoying the delicious flavors of January in the northern hemisphere.

Sounds odd? Not at all.

It's a good time of year for root vegetables – slow cooked carrots, parsnips & onions with rosemary, for example – and for deep green treats like Brussels sprouts – the best ever of which I just had the other night at Cav on Market Street in San Francisco and which were cooked with cider, I think, to take off a little of the bitterness.

It's also a perfect time for baking – breads, pies, casseroles – and soup-making.

Mmm, and time to break out the aged treats – cheeses, wine, cured meats, pickles, jams.

What good flavors can you find in January where you live?
