Taste of spring: Minted peas and lamb cutlets.
Taste of spring: Justin North's minted peas and lamb cutlets.

Finally, the long, hard winer has come to an end. What better way to celebrate than with a cook-up utilising some of spring's loveliest offerings?

There's lamb of course. But don't forget the vegies: Spring is all about artichokes, carrots, peas and beans, mushrooms and cauliflower. .

With this is mind, there's no reason to eat poorly this week.
