PRIME SEASONAL PRODUCTS

JANUARY

Our Butler has decided that it’s time to get back to healthy eating after the Christmas holidays and makes it easy for us by recommending we consume the following seasonal foods. It’s important that they are eaten at their peak moment both for the nutrients they provide and for their taste, smell and colour. The Mediterranean diet is a valuable cultural inheritance which represents much more than a mere nutritional guideline, that also happens to be delicious and healthy. It’s a balanced lifestyle which draws together recipes, ways of cooking, celebrations, customs, typical products and a variety of human activities.
