The British Asparagus Festival 2017 begins today and runs till June 21st.
One of the most wonderful things about living near Evesham is the amazing produce we grow locally, most famous of which must be our asparagus. And every year we celebrate locally with the festival.
There are lots of events on over the festival and many opportunities to sample the freshest crop but I thought I’d share some of the great recipes from the Festival website and local restaurants –
And lots of ways to cook asparagus too –

So enjoy the Asparagus season while it lasts!
And if you need anything to help you cook your asparagus, drop by for asparagus steamers and very fine bladed peelers, if like telly chefs you peel the stems! And if you do, you will need soft silicon tongs to turn them too!
