What's in season in July?

Sturdier greens, like cavolo nero & Swiss chard, come into season in July, as well as watermelon and some berries like raspberries, redcurrants & tayberries – perfect for topping your breakfast.

July also marks the start of the school summer holidays in the UK, with lots of people choosing this month to travel. I recently published my guide to vegan & gluten-free travel, so check out that post before you jet off.

Travel

I don’t have any ‘abroad’ travel booked this year, but I’ve got a flying visit to Cornwall in July, to visit some old family freinds, and a week in Northumberland with my parents & my in-laws (wish me luck!) at the start of August.

Maybe I should experiment with making some regional dishes vegan and gluten-free as I did with Irish potato farls a few years ago. These were recently republished because my original was vegetarian, not vegan, and also because my photography skills have wildly improved in the past 3 years:

Let me know in the comments any Cornish or Northumbrian delicacies you want me to try, and follow my adventures in real-time on my Insta stories @ZoePickburn.
