Bangladeshi cooking and eating is based around seasonal produce - the nation has not four, but six seasons, which each bring its own distinct flavours. The beginning of Bangladeshi summer, or Boishak is filled with festivals and fairs and fish, rice and vegetables are traditionally eaten during this celebration period.
