Spring is all about light, airy, delicious dishes because it is the vegetable season. Asparagus, fennel, radishes, fava beans and fiddlehead ferns come to the farmers market and it is time to bring them into use. So, perhaps, it is time to get hold of some recipes to celebrate the oncoming of spring.
 
1. Rhubarb Lattice Pie
Rhubarb is the favorite summer ingredient because it replaces apples perfectly, to make a delicious spring pie. Though rhubarb in itself is tart in flavor, adding substantial quantities of cinnamon and sugar, along with some berries, makes it the perfect recipe for a tasty pie, to be celebrated with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Forget winter already?
