This week we learnt about menu planning and seasonal produce. Everyone suggested their favourite dishes but is soon became clear that not all of them could be served at the Harvest Festival lunch. Some of the dishes included cool season vegetables which grow best in winter. Other dishes included crops which won’t grow in our coastal temperate climate. We quickly eliminated broccoli and cauliflower from the menu, along with mangoes and other tropical fruits. In the end, we short listed a number of dishes which included temperate summer crops.
