To everything there is a season

The view from my bedroom window at midnight. Note the fact that there are no leaves on the trees. To everything there is a season - and that includes our food. We are artisan producers and we use the ingredients available to us - trying to buy as locally as possible. So, at the moment very little lamb, not much rabbit, a definite shortage of young beef bones and frequent apologies to our customers because we won't buy anything that isn't British. Still, spring is definitely on the way and in a week or two we shouldn't be facing these shortages. Incidentally, we have just appointed a new head butcher and one of his first duties is to re-examine our supply chain. We are concerned that we haven't had time to visit our suppliers recently. We've made some changes and we plan some more so we need to do our homework.
