German Asparagus

Last night I visited Tania's place. She is half German.
The gathering was to enjoy German Asparagus !
I've never seen such a huge asparagus in my life.


It was full of Spring smell. According to her, this asparagus is a symbol of Spring. The season of asparagus is strictly determined.
After the end of the determined season, you wouldn't see it at the market. ( It sounded very German to me ! )


She prepared with ham and taragon.
After dinner, mango sorbet was served. We enjoyed German wines
( a few bottles including sparkling wine. )

Thank you , Tania !
