  • About

Apart from Délices d’Argenteuil, asparagus lends itself to the simplest of preparations. Most obvious is to serve it with melted butter, or just hollandaise on its own. I have come to the conclusion that, in fact, eggs are its favourite companion: buttery scrambled eggs, soft-boiled or poached eggs using asparagus spears as ‘soldiers’ or eggs baked en cocotte with cream and tarragon. Here, asparagus is served with hard-boiled and chopped eggs, together with Parmesan and olive oil.
