The first wealth is health. Eat seasonally and organically.


British asparagus is only in season from 23 April until 21 June, I adore British asparagus, so I always try and get it the moment it first becomes available. For just a short 8 –week period British asparagus season is in season, it’s brief but the quality is frequently exceptional.

当季的英国芦笋仅在每年的4月23日至6月21日的这个时节,我非常喜欢英国芦笋,所以我总是在最新鲜的时刻,享用最新鲜的食物。 只有短短的8周时间,最好的往往就是那么短暂,千万不要辜负了。

Asparagus and pancetta soldiers with soft-boiled eggs


小贴士:英文SOLDIER原意-士兵-,用在菜名上很有趣,一般是指-像形如士兵的枪一样长而硬的食物, 例如烤面包条、烤南瓜、芦笋、长西蓝花条、等等。不妨大家可以换换不同的“士兵”来做做菜。
