Citrus, squash and roots in the dead of winter

Let's be honest: February is not the month to be shopping at the farmers' market. Yet there are still tasty finds to be had, namely in the citrus department. To be fair, only a few choice places grow said lemons, oranges, grapefruit and clementines. That doesn’t mean they don't deserve a shout-out. 

Recipes In Season: 30 Things To Cook In February

What we're braising, stir-frying, searing, baking

February can be a little dull in the kitchen. But consider this: You can't make cassoulet in the summer. I mean, you can. But don't. Nobody will come over for heavy sausage and confit-laden stew in the summer. But everyone will come over for that in February. Ditto for steak 'n' ale casserole and French onion soup. With all this in mind, here are a few other recipes we're relying on to make it to spring.

Winter can be grim. But there's lots to work with.
Jan 6, 2015 9:00 am

To be honest, there isn’t that much in season come January (unless, of course if you live in California). But that doesn't mean you can't shop the farmers market. During the colder months you will find a lot of root cellar produce, perfect for storing all winter long. "Obviously, root vegetables are what you have to work with this time of year," says chef Bryce Shuman of New York restaurant Betony. "We are using parsnips on the menu, kale, celery root and trying to find cool ways to use those ingredients." This month he shares some fun ideas.
