Eat Seasonally In February

4 British Ingredients To Eat Seasonally In February.

Do you want to eat more seasonally in February? We can help. Over the last couple of years we’ve doubled down on eating and drinking UK produce.  Today, about 85% of everything we consume is grown in the UK.  And it’s not as hard as it sounds. Even in tough months like February, especially if you like fish. It is no exaggeration to say this is a great month to enjoy world class ingredients on our own doorstep with Dover sole and scallops in prime season this month.   See our guide for more February seasonal produce.

Scallops For World Class Seasonal Eating In February

Although a little pricey, these lovely shell fish are super quick and easy to cook – the only risk is overcooking them. Delicious with Asian flavours of ginger and coriander. Equally good with British seasonal ingredients such as watercress, black pudding and English pancetta.

Scallops seared in butter for the simplest of high impact suppers.  Perfect with a glass of English Chardonnay, such as Simpsons Gravel Castle.

Onions For Versatile Seasonal Eating In February

Onions are a brilliantly versatile vegetable and one of the few that taste good all year round.  So often hidden within a dish, this is a great month to make them the star. Some of our favourites include caramelised onion and goat cheese pasta, onion tart and sausage stuffed onions.

French onion soup with a rich beef stock and red Leicester croutons. Pairs perfectly with an English white wine such as Pinot Gris or Chardonnay. For something unusual try Missing Gate Sauvignon Blanc from Essex.

Jerusalem Artichokes – The Perfect Vegetable To Eat Seasonally In February.

These underrated little tubers are in season October to March and well worth adding to you list of winter seasonal veg. They are excellent mashed, deep fried, sauteed and made into a soup.


One of our best winter canapes is deep fried ribbons of Jerusalem artichoke topped with English brie and vineyard honey. Beautiful with a glass of English Blanc de Blancs, such as Raimes from Hampshire.

December Seasonal Produce Apple Tart

Apples For A Sweet Treat In February

Apples are one of the few English fruits that you can buy in February. They won’t be new season, and as such will lack a bit of the freshness and crispness you find in autumn.   However, all is not lost.  This is a great month to stew or amp up English apples with sugar and spice.


Apple tart with a rich buttery crust. Delicious with a glass of English fizz to round off the evening. We love this dessert paired with an older vintage English Sparkling Wine, such as Terlingham Blanc de Blancs.
