It’s that time again! June’s cooking club was all about the season:
This month’s challenge = A dish featuring at least one item of in-season fresh produce
So for Australia we’re talking ingredients such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, fennel, mushrooms, potatoes, silverbeet, spinach.
Perfect! Seasonal cooking is the best. I love to embrace the seasons wholeheartedly in general, so in summer I’m all about the sun, the surf and massive fresh fruit platters, and in winter I can’t get enough of comfort foods. And with the rainy, cold weather we’ve been having this last week, what better choice than some hot cauliflower soup? (with lots of spices and pepper for extra warmth).
Curling up with this and a good book or movie is my definition of a wintry afternoon well spent!

Super excited to see my beautiful friend Farenn, over at Anything Squirrel Squirrel, joining in this month. Farenn’s living in the U.K. at the moment and I’m missing her like crazy, so it’s nice to be doing this together (albeit in different locations).
If you’d like to participate in next month’s cooking club challenge, head on over to Lucent Imagery and leave a comment. She’s the cooking club host and can fill you in on all the details.
