British Asparagus Festival 2017

Asparagus Festival 2017 - Table Manners of Broadway


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 –

There is Revills Asparagus ‘Twiglets” and Asparagus and Pea Soup from Revills Farmshop

and Belle House’s Salad of Birlingham Asparagus and Asparagus Soup from Belle House

And lots of ways to cook asparagus too –

How to Blanch (or Boil) Asparagus

How to Grill Asparagus

How to Microwave Asparagus

How to Pan-Roast Asparagus

How to Roast Asparagus

How to Sauté Asparagus

How to Steam Asparagus

How to Stir-Fry Asparagus

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!
