Cooking with seasonal produce is a great way to ensure you’re eating fresh food that’s packed with flavour. Not only does it taste better than processed ingredients, but there are also numerous health benefits associated with consuming local fruits and vegetables. 

As well as providing essential vitamins and minerals, these fresh ingredients are typically free from pesticides or other chemicals used in conventional farming methods. Plus, by buying locally grown produce you’re helping to support small farmers who practise sustainable agriculture techniques which benefit the environment. 

Seasonal produce is also more affordable and better for the environment since it doesn’t have to travel far before reaching your plate – meaning fewer costs for transport as well as less energy being consumed during production processes. 

Additionally, when purchasing directly from farmers’ markets or trusted local suppliers, you can often find lower prices than you typically would at wholesalers or grocery stores due to reduced overhead costs. All of this means that you’re enjoying a meal that tastes great, offers unbeatable value for money, and reduces your impact on the environment!

Finally, eating seasonally allows us to experience different flavours throughout the year – something that we at Wivenhoe House love to do.
