welcome to may

And, just like that, the sun’s out! The kitchen windows are wide open, veg aisles and boxes are suddenly more interesting, and we can finally get out in the fresh air. It feels like a good opportunity to give the magazine a spring clean, so we have a new section, Cook’s Calendar, full of suggestions for easy, satisfying projects this month (p11). Food director Cassie Best has made it simple to plan meals using the best of the season, with plenty of healthy, great-value choices that give you more precious time to enjoy the warmer weather over the bank holidays (p18). We’re always striving to develop recipes that will become your new favourites, of course, but BBC Good Food is more than just a cooking resource. Thank you to everyone who…

this is your good food

your letters ‘I’ve been a Good Food subscriber for more than 10 years, and make lots of the recipes. In April 2020, at the height of the first lockdown, I set myself a challenge to cook all the cover recipes for a year. Some have been easy, many have been tricky (Christmas 2020 was the hardest), but all have been delicious and well-received by my family. I’ve posted a picture of every one on Facebook, and friends have told me how much they look forward to seeing the next cover recipe and that it’s provided really positive posts for them during a di icult year. The challenge is complete, but the cooking continues! Attached is a photo of all 12 months.’ Liz Mildenhall, Swindon, Wiltshire your creations what you’ve been cooking You’ve been busy…

10 things to do this month

1 GET ORGANISED THREE WAYS TO ORGANISE YOUR FOOD CUPBOARD When the glut of summer produce hits I get out my preserving pan to make chutneys, jams and pickles.

Put new ingredients at the back of the cupboard and bring older ones forward to avoid missing use-by dates. • Donate! If you have long-life ingredients nearing their best-before date, donate to food banks or use the Olio app ( ) to reduce waste and make space. 2 PRESER VE THE SEAS ON PREPARE FOR…

According to the British Hen Welfare Trust ( uk) smaller eggs are generally laid by younger birds and taste better. They’re also much easier for the hen to lay. Eggs can be bought in boxes of mixed sizes at some supermarkets (some egg producers only sell mixed-sized packs) and it benefits the farmer if you buy them this way as, currently, less popular smaller eggs are turned to liquid for food service. That, in turn, means that on a per unit basis, they’re sold more cheaply. Many recipes, including some of our own, list large eggs,…
