Last weekend we had friends over to dinner and I served a saffron & seafood risotto, with a decorative side salad.
I would be over-reaching myself to claim the seafood risotto was 'seasonal': while the dill and chives came from my garden, the saffron and mussels did not!
However, the salad was 100% home grown, and a fun experiment. The peppery rocket came from the vegetable garden, while the silene and mustard had been growing in large bags in the ruined greenhouse, where they'd enjoyed the cool nights and warm days. The yellow and red tomatoes were also home grown. I decorated the salad with violet basil, and blue borage flowers from the orchard, then dressed it with a balsamic vinegrette. Enjoy!
