One of the great joys of writing about food is meeting (albeit virtually) all the other people who write about food. One of my favourite writers and food photographers is Ren Behan at Fabulicious Food. She has lots of great, easy to make recipes, honest product reviews and amaaaazing photographs. She also has a wonderful blogging event called Simple and in Season which I am delighted to be hosting for the month of May.
I love the concept. The idea is to highlight and share food that’s in season. Hopefully the recipes you share will give us all some inspiration and encourage us to try produce we haven’t before.
All you have to do is read through the guidelines below and then link your recipe up by adding the link to your post as a comment below.
A few guidelines.
- Come up with a dish using any seasonal produce – savoury or sweet, baked or not baked – it’s entirely up to you.
- Post the recipe on your blog and link it back to this page (http://wp.me/p1FV2w-xS) and to Ren’s Simple and In Season page: http://www.renbehan.com/simple-and-in-season
- Please feel free to use the image/badge above on your blog post.
- Post your recipe by the 31st May 2012. I’ll do a round-up post of all the entries soon after that.
- 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 but seeing that my blog is all about botanicals no meat or fish this time – go for fruit, vegetables, herbs, seeds, plants or edible flowers!
- Link as many recipes as you like.
- The linky-up is open to anyone, anywhere. Although it will be nice to feature as much British produce as possible, it will be interesting to see what’s in season elsewhere too.
- If you’re on Twitter, you can also tweet “I’ve entered @RenBehan Simple and In Season for May at @BotanicalBaker”.
I can’t wait to see your entries!
