Venison, herrings, shellfish are all stars of the shopping basket now - and new ingredients on the horizon include purple sprouting broccoli and early pink rhubarb.
Not the best month for home-grown produce, February is when we tend to rely increasingly on imported foods. But it's still worth seeking out native root veg, leafy greens and the last of the game. Leeks, Swiss chard, chicory and forced rhubarb should all be finding their way into your shopping basket in Feb.
