This cookbook came into my life a couple of Christmases ago and it has spurred me to try new things. Most of them have been successes that have joined my own repertoire. Spring being asparagus season, the velouté in the soup section called to me.
Now doesn’t that just look like a bowl full of Spring?
Even considering the chaos left behind in the kitchen, the silky texture and delicate taste were well worth the trouble.
Now…if you are moved to leave a comment (and I adore getting comments) please do not be put off by the ominous “fatal error” message. I haven’t the skill to fix this annoying problem. On the up-side, your comment will appear nevertheless, so please ignore the nasty warning. Who knows what WordPress is up to here: seriously, if you have any ideas for a fix I will be eternally grateful.
It looks well worth the effort and countertop chaos.
It was satisfying enough to see me through the cleaning-up process.
Ah you’ve taken me back! For a few springs in a row I had “spring green” parties and invited my friends. They were potlucks and everyone was asked to bring green food. They were silly fun!
Silly is the best kind of fun…am picturing it as I type.
Mmmmm! Asparagus is certainly the vegetable of the moment. I made a gnocchi dish with peas, asparagus and mâche tonight for the first time. It was perfect – just like springtime!
Never have tried gnocchi (first need to learn how to pronounce it) but that sounds like a worthy project.
