Perfect English asparagus

4 May


Nothing brings me more joy than the English asparagus season. It only lasts for a few weeks, but it is well worth the wait. Yes, you can get asparagus all year round, but for 11 months of the year it is bland, disappointing, and has traveled halfway round the world. You can’t beat fresh, local, tender, delicious stems, dripping in butter…

Yes, I could post a recipe for doing something unusual with it, but steamed asparagus is a thing of beauty. Just add a knob of butter, or an egg (poached or soft-boiled) and enjoy.
