We are so pleased to have some delicious local asparagus on our specials menu this week. This tender spring vegetable is unbeatable for its freshness and famed for its health-boosting properties. It is delicious served as simply as possible, with just a pouring of butter or dollop of Hollandaise. But sadly this year’s crop has been blighted by the unseasonably bad weather. Rain has even caused the cancellation of the British Asparagus Festival http://bit.ly/Lt12gz. Let’s hope this dry spell we are currently enjoying is here to last.
