You must be thinking how does imperfection relate to risotto with asparagus? Whenever I’m in Italy I’m confronted with the concept of imperfection and the beauty of it. This time I was reminded of the imperfection because I was preparing a beautiful bunch of thin, long, irregular green asparagus. A big quantity of juicy vegetables for a very reasonable price. How can they compare to the perfectly selected thick, short, green asparagus I find at home in The Netherlands? Both are great but it just shows appearance isn’t everything 🙂
To suit all taste buds! Our favorite spring vegetables dish: white asparagus (I will have to check some of my posts where I claim: “This is my favorite dish” as they all seem to be).
This is also quite funny: I just bought baby potatoes and they are actually from Italy. So, when we are in Italy people love to buy the so called Dutch Potatoes. So how come when I buy potatoes in The Netherlands (potato country) they are from Italy? Interesting, good nonetheless.
A Savory Pastry! It’s asparagus time! My favorite seasonal vegetable. There are so many different ways to prepare these gorgeous green veggies. This time I’ve chosen for a pastry dish to enhance the delicate flavor.
