SEASONAL EATING IN CARDIFF: NOVEMBER

For home growers, kitchen gardeners and those with allotments, eating seasonally happens automatically. But for the rest of us, it can be a bit more of a mystery. In these regular blog posts I try to demystify it a bit – by sharing what’s in season now – and where in Cardiff to find it.

Seasonal Eats in Cardiff: October

We all know that we should be trying to eat more ‘seasonally’; food in season is often fresher, tastier and more nutritious than food consumed out of season (which often has to shipped thousands of miles, too).

But how easy is it to eat seasonally? In these new regular blog posts I’ll share a list of what’s in season each month – and find some local restaurants / cafes who are putting seasonal specials on the menu, right now.

If you really want to ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ this month, eat independent

Independent food and drink businesses in Wales are calling on the public to ‘eat independent, support local’ whilst using the government’s “Eat Out to Help Out” discount scheme throughout August. The discount scheme – announced by Rishi Sunak last month – offers a half price discount on eating out (up to the value of £10) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August.

My Cardiff Lockdown List: Food Collections, Deliveries & Subscriptions

On Friday, Mark Drakeford announced that from tomorrow, we will all be allowed to meet up in parks and private gardens, as long as we maintain social distancing, avoid contact, and limit it to two households at a time. Like everyone else in the country, I can’t wait to make the most of this new lease of freedom and meet up with friends and family who I’ve not seen for weeks on end. Picnics in the park are about to become a daily occurrence for me!

But before I get ready to spend 99.9% of my free time in the local parks, I wanted to give a shout out to the deliveries and subscriptions that have made the last few weeks – mostly spent eating and drinking in our small Canton garden – that much more bearable.
