Asperge sauvage

tiresome moi

I am not much of a cook but I like to eat and enjoy roaming the local markets on the look out for seasonal treats. Today I came home with fresh garlic (ail frais, also called ail nouveau -new garlic), wild asparagus* (asperge sauvage), and white asparagus (asperge blanche). In my twenties I lived by the Three Ingredient Rule, I didn’t make anything that required more than three ingredients and, as a friend used to say, that includes salt and pepper. Fortunately that friend taught me to branch out and expand my culinary horizons. Ironically, tonight’s pièce de résistance is consistent with the Three Ingredient Rule: fresh garlic, butter, wild asparagus (I cheated and sprinkled on a little fleur de sel at the end).

Why I love France – Beef Kebabs and Chocolate Coconut Mousse

Happiness Stan Lives Here

So this week has been eventful – a few days off in Provence, southern France, enjoying sun, heat and food, courtesy of the in-laws, (A major food discovery in Aix was melon served up by my sister-in-law at their house in Rians, more on that later) and we had two birthdays (me, now 43, and my oldest turning into a teenager).
