When it comes to Greek food, you dont necessarily need a big holiday like Greek Independence Day to throw a huge feast. You just need a hungry crowd, a vast knowledge of feta cheese and olive oil and the burning desire to feed a lot of people you love. Break out a bottle of ouzo, brush up on your Greek food and drink lingo and sure, roast a whole lamb.

Pick up a bunch of root vegetables and get mashing, roasting, caramelizing and frying. The warm weather will be rife with lovely produce. Give root vegetables their due in the meantime. 

What's In Season In February: Pomelo, Buttercup Squash And Winter Carrots

Citrus, squash and roots in the dead of winter
Feb 9, 2015 11:00 am

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
Jan 30, 2015 12:00 pm

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.

No Tomatoes? No Problem. 20 Seasonal Winter Pasta Dishes.

Heirlooms are out of season. We're okay with that.

You're feeling pasta for dinner, and you should. So tomatoes are off the table, so what? Sure, you could crack open a can of diced, but...are you sure you want to? Instead, reel dinner back into season and opt for a white bolognese or puttanesca, tomato-less stuffed shells and naturally tomato-free options, like killer mac 'n cheese and pasta frittatas. 

What's In Season In January: Get Creative With Red Russian Kale, Salsify, Rutabaga

Winter can be grim. But there's lots to work with.
Jan 6, 2015 10:00 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.
