The Importance of Eating Seasonally & Locally
Steve Rimmer – Head Chef
Head Chef Steve Rimmer shares a bit more information behind his food choices…
At Mulberry Tree restaurant, we use the best locally sourced produce. All of our dishes are prepared in-house; the menu includes a great choice of meat and fish, and there is a selection of vegetarian dishes.
We create a lot of our dishes based on seasonal products and customer’s needs; not only is it economical, but eating seasonally has health benefits too – foods in season contain the nutrients, minerals and trace elements that our bodies need at particular times of year. For example, we will use wild garlic and asparagus between March and May when it’s just come into season and is at its peak, whilst the Herefordshire berries are very delicious from June to September.
When it comes to seasons, my favourites have always been autumn and winter. This is the time of year I like cooking heartier food such as slow-cooked blade of Herefordshire beef with horseradish mash, roast root vegetables and a deep rich red wine sauce. The autumn/winter vegetables such as parsnips, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash are great and go well as purées with fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. You will always find beetroot on the menu as that’s one of my favourite ingredients to use and I love to put it with goat’s cheese. Consider us when looking for a restaurant in Malvern and give it a go this season!
