Asparagus, Sardines and Elderflower… just a few of the foodie delights that May has to offer…

Firstly, an apology is in order for missing the last few months and not posting any seasonal food between February-April.  Today, I’m putting things right with a reminder of all the wonderful foods out there that will be in season in May…
