Asparagus Fondue

Enjoyed by Bill

Asparagus goes well with Parmesan cheese. Asparagus also goes well with Taleggio and Gruyèr. It seems we can assume that asparagus works with cheese generally – so why not a fondue?
No dipping necessary – I’ve placed the spears in a luscious pool of fondue and tossed croutons over the top. Eat as a starter with a knife and fork.

Asparagus Pizza

Asparagus and Potted Shrimp

Enjoyed by Bill

Asparagus and shellfish have an affinity with one another – prawns and crab are known as being particularly good partners. It occurred to me that the small brown shrimp form Morecombe Bay are ‘potted’ in butter, and we know that asparagus and butter go together – so here’s my asparagus and shellfish combination, and very fine it is too.

In some versions the vegetables are deliverately overcooked. However, here they are cooked till tender and arranged over grilled polenta.

San Joaquin Battered Asparagus

Enjoyed by Bill

In San Joaquin County, at Stockton California they stage an Asparagus Festival in April. Stockton is the centre of asparagus growing in California so it makes sense to celebrate the crop. 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!
