News from Ben's kitchen
"Want some fresh Spring greens? Go to nature's supermarket - the super outdoors! But you won't need a shopping trolley - just a clean plastic bag. I've just been to the woods to pick a small handful of Ramsons for my lunch: 6 leaves are enough to mix with a salad of grated carrot & beetroot to make a tasty, vitamin C and flavonoid and spring cleaning-rich meal. If you add some freshly squeezed lemon and olive oil, you'll ensure you also absorb all the vitamin A, D & E too.
Come to our first Herb Walk of the year to experience the plants that get their flowers out before the woods get their leaves out and how some freshly picked Ramsons can deepen your breathing, clear your head, and chase away the Winter cold."
