Asparagus

Saveur dubs asparagus “the ambassador of spring.” Even if there’s still snow on the ground where you are, asparagus has likely made it to your market, a sign of all the good things to come in warmer weather. It’s a very versatile vegetable, delicious raw, steamed, roasted or incorporated into a more complex dish.

Parting Thought

Playwrights are like men who have been dining for a month in an Indian restaurant. After eating curry night after night, they deny the existence of asparagus.
