APRIL 2017

I hope that you're enduring these April showers and enjoying the spring blooms that have started to appear. In the Lark kitchen we're welcoming the first ingredients of the Evergreen season. White asparagus, green garlic and nettles are appearing on the menu now and halibut, morels and ramps will be coming up soon. Let's find comfort in these spring highlights while we wait for the weather to improve. 

Nettles and morels, two prizes of spring.
