Wild asparagus delicacy
For the next month or so market stalls across Italy will be offering great bunches of Violetto d' Albenga, the purple asparagus, or the celebrated white asparagus of Bassano del Grappa. But in Umbria we have our own wild asparagus delicacy. Harvested from the surrounding oak woods, these tasty, tender little beauties are one of Umbria's finest foraging prizes and can be used to make an array of beautiful dishes. Chef Rosario's springtime recipe, a favourite at our Osteria.
