The End of Winter. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. So long, long-coats and snow boots, the sun is breaking through again. Spring is around the corner, and as we take stock of a winter that was more difficult than anticipated, we can appreciate the good that is still coming to us. The inter-period between spring and summer is one of the most exciting, with seasonal foods like rhubarb, morels, and a variety of citrus just coming into markets, and old winter standbys like root vegetables and squashes, all being mixed to interesting, if not delicious, results. All sorts of fresh herbs and an urge to break the frost can make your cocktail regimen perk up, just like the season itself, once again.
