The Perfect Late-Winter, Early-Spring Meal
Invite friends and loved ones over for a menu that celebrates the best of both seasons
What's the best thing about the fickle, in-between weather that's come to signify the end of winter and the beginning of spring? Making up for it with the best produce from both seasons. If you're spending the weekend with friends, consider serving a calendar-appropriate meal that includes fresh greens, hearty tubers, and a generous helping of berries and apples to round out the menu. To start: a bright potato-leek-and-watercress soup topped with a dollop of crème fraiche. Follow it up with a light poached chicken salad and a flaky mascarpone-fruit tart, and your dinner party is all but complete. Now, who's pouring the cocktails?
