You are getting two posts today, what joy I hear you cry! I have lots of Frenchy pix and I also wanted to share my asparagus recipe as there is so much of the lovely stuff about right now and it just tastes so damn good.
so here is a food market in a village in France. Gorgeous goodies set out for all to touch, taste and choose. Fabulous fresh goodness, no plastic wrappers, no 'eat by' instructions, no supermarket fancy lighting and piped in irritating music.
Food at its finest.
Handmade food with the artisan's touch. Sellers ready with a sharp little knife to slice off a piece and tempt the passer by. hmmm i can taste things in my mind, I can smell the spicy aroma and taste those garlic laden sausages.
Local specialities, things that are different, something that looks as different as it tastes. A treat to the senses.
We all know these, the old favourite, the taste of summer. Red berries bursting with flavour, fresh and local, no plastic boxes and imported from glass houses in a foreign land. Just picked and thrown in a crate for you to take your own.
The asparagus season in full swing, there are so many sellers plying their wares. Piles of the veg tied up in string, it is everywhere.
I love asparagus, read on for my favourite way of serving it…..
