Prior to moving to Germany, I used to think of asparagus as a bit of an expensive luxury. It wasn’t often on the menu in my household. And when it was, it really wasn’t all that interesting – except for the asparagus being barbequed, or plainly boiled or roasted. Living in Germany has totally changed that for me, especially during the last two months when there is an overload of Spargel everywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean you cannot walk past any culinary shop without there being some sort of connotation towards spargel. Restaurants have spargel special menus, and so many little pop up stalls are up and selling beautiful green asparagus and different types of white asparagus.
