For a limited time, we are once again featuring white asparagus on the menu.
Here is a quote from a piece on the blog “Austrian Alpine Getaways” on white apsparagus phenomenon:
“To Austrians, white asparagus is something like foie gras or caviar. From the 17th century, asparagus was seen as a “luxury vegetable” exclusively available the Austrian aristocracy and their selected guests. The white asparagus is precious and more expensive due to its short season and tedious harvest. Whereas, the “common” green asparagus is readily available all year and can be found all over the globe.”
We will be featuring the coveted dish until our imported supply runs out. To read the full article, copy the following link into your browser… http://www.blog.austrianalpinegetaways.com/spargelzeit-asparagus-time/
