White Asparagus


Milder in flavor than the green variety, white asparagus is highly prized in
Europe, while in the United States it has only recently come into favor.
A harbinger of spring, asparagus is celebrated in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where special asparagus menus are featured in restaurants. For an Italian approach, eat it cold with lemon juice and olive oil. If you prefer elaborate flavors, enjoy with a Hollandaise sauce of egg yolks, lemon juice, butter and nutmeg.
