Seasonal Cooking for December – Early Summer – Southern Hemisphere.

Eat Seasonally, Food for December | Early Summer and Early Winter | A Life (Time) of Cooking | Vegetarian

And so to December, that crazy month in Australia, where all parts of one’s life become crazy-busy as everybody strives to get things done before people break for the seasonal holidays. It is moving slowly into Summer here and people generally take a long break – up to 4 weeks – holiday over later December and January. Businesses close up, it is hard to find a place for a good cup of coffee, and it becomes unbelievably quiet on the roads.

I love this time of year.

Use the recipes below for inspiration for the summer climates – tomorrow we will focus on the winter climates at this time of year. Enjoy!
