It is the time of year when the colour red takes centerstage because of the festive period. Interestingly, it also trickles into gastronomy with strawberries being one of the star seasonal ingredients in the market. While the sweet side of the fruit is commonly enjoyed, city chefs reveal its savoury flair with these delicious recipes

It’s the season of all things sweet and savoury as most people not only celebrate with their families but also host house parties – both cosy and elaborate. Christmas and New Year are going to be busy times and while planning the menu may be difficult, it is easiest to use seasonal produce as it is readily available. Among the many ingredients, strawberries are a favourite. But if you aren’t someone who experiments in the kitchen, can you imagine using strawberries in a savoury dish? Neither could we but city chefs say there is more to the fruit than we know.
