Favorite Season For Cooking

What's Your Favorite Season For Cooking, and Why?


In preparation for the New Year, I keep getting so excited about all of the food I'm going to cook each season. I have a hard time deciding what my favorite time of year is, at least when it comes to fruits and veggies. I love hearty, rich Winter and Fall vegetables roasted with rosemary and olive oil, but bright, new asparagus and artichokes in the Spring are really exciting to cook with. Still, I'm not sure if there's anything better than colorful, vitamin-rich Summer vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, melons and stone fruit. I'm curious as to what you prefer. What's your favorite season for cooking fresh fruits and vegetables at home, and why?

I too, love the summer. So fresh and easy, often with little need for much heat in the kitchen. But I also crave the comfort foods of this time of year...rich casseroles, mac and cheese, roasted meats and veggies, mashed potatoes. The grass is always greener...

It'd be easy to say Summer, definitely -- who can resist everything at the farmers market? But oddly enough, it's actually Spring I dream about -- that time when morels, ramps, fiddlehead ferns, chervil, baby spring vegetables, and all sorts of other unique vegetables make an appearance. It's a very small window, and if you pass it, you won't see any of these things until the next year!

I love summer because the produce is so cheap and delicious!

I agree with Lime... I was just thinking how much I miss summer produce. Tomatoes, corn, and green peppers are just not the same.

Summer, definitely! All of those wonderful fresh fruits and veggies, who wouldn't love it? Winter is a close second, because I love making and eating soup.
