In my kitchen, asparagus fall under seasonal, finger food, which means I lightly roast them and eat straight up, maybe with some beef tenderloin since I discovered this incredible recipe. Fresh and shaved in a salad is another fantastic way to eat it, something I learned from one of Alice Waters books. But the key word is seasonal. And it means I can eat the whole stalk, there´s no bending to see where it breaks and discarding most of it.
We, of the southern hemisphere, are currently living a lovely autumn, full of colorful ocre leaves and humidity.
