This Auld Reekie Recipe (Scots name for Cock-a-Leekie) pays homage to my dear dad, as it was his favourite soup, and to my Scottish ancestors. In Scotland this soup is traditionally served on Burns Night and in the ‘olden days’ an old cock rooster would have been used, but today chicken is more readily available. ‘Auld Reekie’ is also the nick name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and goes back to the days of the coal and wood fires that used to create a plume of reek (Scots word for smoke) over the old city and castle.
Eating with the seasons and buying local helps to support the environment because it reduces the number of miles your food has to travel before it reaches your plate. This in turn helps to reduces pollution.
This are some of the veggies, which are in season in February in western and northern Europe.
