It's asparagus season here. It's so exciting to have foods that are only available at certain times of the year.I discovered asparagus growing wild in France. People would stop their cars and pick the fresh asparagus spears from the side of the road. My favourite was seeing folks all dressed up with their hands and knees smeared with earth from grubbing around.
Lightly steamed and drizzled with a good oil and sea salt with an egg on the side is a popular lunch around here. I want to try this asparagus tempura recipe. It has to be good!
