These are outrageously delicious. Serve warm as an hors d’oeuvre.

Asparagus Bruschetta

Enjoyed by Bill

Most asparagus bruschetta recipes use goats cheese. I tried this and it’s okay but unremarkable, so I made a artichoke and cannellini bean puree to replace the cheese – it’s much better.

Asparagus and Potato Samosas

Enjoyed by Bill

This is an asparagus spin on a pea and potato samosa. I’ve held back on some of the spices to allow the asparagus to shine through.

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

Three asparagus and pastry recipes. Choose from goats cheese and spinach, Taleggio and mushroom, or Gruyère. All are quite simple and ideal for a light lunch or supper – or make in advance for a party or a picnic.

Pear, Watercress, Spinach and Rocket Salad

This is a great little appetizing starter. It works best with pears that are just under ripe.

Hake in Green Sauce

Enjoyed by Bill

This is a staple of the Basque region of Spain. It seems in every way a bit foreign or difficult. But it’s basically fish in a parsley flavoured sauce. It’s a good recipe to learn as you can swap around the ingredients endlessly to suit your taste and budget.

Asparagus and peas braised in butter with herbs, hazelnuts, kasha and lemon

Enjoyed by Bill

It’s the British asparagus season – make the most of it with this very simple combination: fresh asparagus from local fields and fresh peas from a pod, boiled and then quickly braised in butter, with lemon herbs and hazlenuts and kasha for a bit of crunch.

Strawberry Flan

Enjoyed by Bill

This is based on an Erdbeer-Biskuit-Kuchen recipe from a German fruit flan cookbook. I was given the book during a recent trip to Germany by our hosts during ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (traditional coffee and cake social just after lunch).

Pappardelle with Parma Ham

Another ‘leftover’ from an Easter anti pasto and another recipe worth posting.
