This may seem a little ‘left field’ or a crazy culinary ruse – but in fact it is grounded very objectively into our family’s Thanksgiving story…

Asparagus Tempura Soba

Enjoyed by Bill

This is a classic Japanese way with soba and tempura. Strickly speaking the asparagus tempura is kaki-age, made like a tempura fritter rather than individual spears coated in tempura. But such academic details seem trivial when it comes to tempura – any tempura is amazing – especially asparagus!

Asparagus Niçoise Salad

Enjoyed by Bill

The exact constituent parts of an authentic Niçoise salad is a matter of contentious debate. There must be as many points of view as there are cooks. So I am throwing my hat into the ring and offer up Niçoise with asparagus!!

Asparagus in Miso Dressing

Enjoyed by Bill

Like sesame sauce, miso ends up in sauces and dressing for many classic Japanese salads. Here I’ve combined miso with asparagus to make a rather exotic salad – wasabi on the side adds piquancy and a touch of jeopardy to the dish.

Asparagus and Tuna Sesame

Enjoyed by Bill

It’s a Japanese way to mix sesame sauces in with food – I suspect the reason is because the sauce is so good it can’t help being slipped into all sorts of dishes. Here, I’ve married the sauce with asparagus and tuna. In some respects, it reminds me of the filling of a tuna fish and asparagus sandwhich filling, so good, you want start eating it before it gets anywhere near a slice of bread…

Asparagus, Tofu, Avocado, Sesame

Enjoyed by Bill

Asparagus and nuts have an affinity – I’ve used hazelnuts and seen recipes with pistachios, so sesame should – and does – marry well. Avocado and tofu work well together, and asparagus eats well with avocado. This recipe brings all these flavour combination together in a Japanese style dish.

Gnocchi with Tosi Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce

Enjoyed by Bill

Here’s a really easy way with gnocchi. Add to a quick cheese sauce made with Gorgonzola, add a few chives and that’s it. Use a good Gorgonzola (I’ve used the excellent cheese made by Tosi),
