As for the fruitthis is the ideal month to buy or pick strawberries, kiwis, lemons, apples, medlars and pears.
For a vegetable appetizerdelicious and tasty, breaded asparagus is a delicious and very tasty idea to open a meal, lunch or dinner. Prepare them together with radicchio pate, a condiment for appetizer with a delicious look, easy to prepare and very tasty, made with Treviso radicchio and walnuts.
For a different April first course, try spaghetti and zucchini baked in foil, a tasty idea for a courgette-based first course with a garlic gravy! You’re not ready to say goodbye yet soups? Then try all the flavor of rocket soup, good on its own or with croutons!
When the first rays of the sun begin to warm the crisp April air, it’s always time for sauerkraut chops! A typical german dish prepared with meat cut into slices and cooked on a mixture of sauerkraut and apples. Do you want to surprise your guests at the table with a different meat dish than usual?

Spring means… Strawberries! But why settle for a tart if you can prepare a strawberry charlotte, a French delight with ladyfingers, cream and seasonal fruit?
In April you can celebrate all the taste of strawberries even in a cocktail classico that everyone always likes, the strawberry Caipirinha! Want something stronger but just as sweet? Don’t miss the Sapphire Kiwi, a cocktail a base di gin which is tempered by the sweet taste of the tropical fruit.
