Spring | Asparagus, Potatoes and Egg

white asparagus
Standard

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.

Pasta | Oven Pasta Dish

Pasta
Standard

Pasta di Semola di Grano Duro. Since 1947. On the fields of gold in Umbria, high quality wheat is harvested to make a fantastic pasta from the brand Filiberto Bianconi. For this dish I’ve used durum wheat pasta in the shape of a flower. The shape is in fact the symbol of Florence: Giglio. It’s a pretty pasta with a full taste because the pieces are short and fat. The combination of eggs, spinach and pasta is my favourite dish of success. It’s colourful, tasty and looks beautiful on  your plate. Besides the look, spinach also  contains high quantities of  antioxidants and is a rich source of iron.
