Asparagus is the queen of vegetables and May and June herald the short season of our favourite English asparagus. 

Course Details

This class will feature asparagus alongside other delicious ingredients of late Spring and early Summer, such as broadbeans, fresh peas and sorrel.

You will learn how best to prepare and cook asparagus in different ways and make quick dishes such as:

  • Fatayer Pastries with Asparagus and Broad Beans
  • Griddled Asparagus Crostini and Wilted Wild Garlic with Béarnaise Sauce
  • Sorrel, Raw Asparagus and Jersey Royal Salad
  • Asparagus and Pea Frittata

The evening is a combination of demonstration and hands on participation and we will eat all of the food that we make with organic wines or juices.
