Rhubarb – In Season Now
I absolutely love rhubarb and after a long winter the deep pink stems in early spring are very welcome.
For me, rhubarb is best in spring and by the time the summer fruits including strawberries, start to appear I’m finished with rhubarb for another year.
I love to bake my classic rhubarb tart with a rich buttery shortcrust pastry served simply with a little pouring cream. Rhubarb lends itself to so many lovely recipes not least a rhubarb crumble and it;’s great for making ice cream and sorbets.
Rhubarb is making an appearance in my Traditional Irish class in the form of a tart and in the Easter Baking class I’ll be making rhubarb and ginger scones.
At Wee Buns Cookery School we run a number of seasonal baking courses from Autumnal Baking classes to Easter Baking and Christmas Cooking Classes.
