I’ve always been fascinated by the huge spears and takeaway fairground style of eating. I reckon these are as near as your going to get to the Stockton real McCoys. Eat al fresco!

Asian asparagus salad in a rice paper wrap – not your usual way with asparagus – but well worth the effort.

One source indicates there are at least 43 categories of German sausage – and who knows how many further vatiations… I’m familiar with about 5. One of these is new for me – weisswurst – and well worth seeking out at your local German deli.
