The markets have exploded with Spring!
After what always seems like a long grew winter, color is filling our kitchens.
Artichokes, fava beans, asparagus and now fresh peas. When cooking with the seasons, there are certain recipes which appear only in season and we celebrate by gorging on them.
In my garden all the fresh herbs are coming back to life and inspiring me to use them in the kitchen.
Everywhere I go now there are artichokes and asparagus in hundreds of different ways.
Usually in a trattoria, the owner will come and propose the daily specials, saying that they have asparagus, how would you like it? Risotto, Pasta, with a fried egg?
Simplicity is the key when cooking with fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits.
How can you not be inspired by all this fabulous food?
