Creating a Seasonal calendar for Scotland?
Strawberries in February and asparagus in September? In times where everything is seemingly available all the time, it’s not easy to keep the seasonality of food in order.
Yet respecting the importance of good, clean and fair doesn’t have to be a question of sacrifice, but should be about getting inspired by the seasonal produce on offer and appreciating how all four seasons bear great culinary variety!
Slow Food Youth Network stands up for spreading this knowledge about high quality, sustainable and locally produced food across the world. Born in Switzerland and now spread in multiple countries has been the production of a Calendar Culinarium, specific to the climates and produce available in each country – each aiming to inspire you to learn, cook and taste the bounty of seasonal produce available to us locally.
The Scottish Calendar Culinarium conveys the seasonality of over 25 vegetable and fruit varieties which are cultivated in Scotland, including some from the Ark of Taste, put in order according to the annual cycle and with a cyclical seasonal chart for the whole year.
We created this calendar to encourage everyone to use Scottish vegetables and learn about their seasonality. We also hope to inspire people to think about the history behind the food and the impact of our choices as consumers.
All profits from the sales of the calendar will support the wider activities of SFYN Scotland planned for 2019.
We’d also love you to share your photos of the calendar up at home or at your place of work using #calendariumculinariumscotland
