It's been a while since I posted a seasonal recipe, so I thought when better to start again than for Shrove Tuesday aka pancake day? My dog walk yesterday took me along the wild garlic stream near the farm. The aroma hit me even before I was off our field and onto the lane. It brought back memories of making wild garlic pancakes last April and inspired me to try a twist on a chicken kiev for supper last evening - using wild garlic and mozzarella instead of garlic, herbs and butter. I hope you enjoy trying them out in coming months as wild garlic becomes even more abundant, and if you don't have any near you then of course substitute some garlic and herbs of your choice.
(A similar footpath flanked by wild garlic is pictured on the front of March's issue of Devon Life where we also happen to have a competition to win a stay here at Blackdown Yurts. Get entering if you haven't already as it closes on 11th March at 11.45pm. Link at the bottom of this blog!)
