Asparagi

Asparagus, what a passion!

My little cousin is incredible; he just eats the asparagus tips and leave the rest to the other guests. I would like to have a good talk with him, when we are alone, and explain to him that he will be able to do that one day (perhaps) in front of his girlfriend. In fact, this is a typical case where we should learn from the youngest. When you serve asparagus, the best would be to serve only the tips, so that your guests can eat them with only the help of a fork. Remember one very important rule: knife is never used for soft foods. If by chance you find yourself in front of a plate of whole asparagus, there are two possibilities. First: you are lucky and you are also given the special pliers to eat them. I have not seen them around for ages, but they are brilliant! They allow you to take an asparagus at the time, bring it to your mouth and eat just the tip, leaving the hardest part of the stem. Second: unless you are given the pliers, you’ll have to eat them with your hands, trying to avoid possible disasters. No slurping, no oil on your chin, keep your greasy fingers under control. The real touch of class is putting a finger bowl on the table. I love the rose water one. Try to make it too!

Let’s recap?

ASPARAGUS TIPS ONLY:

  • don not use a knife to eat them, but only a fork.

WHOLE ASPARAGUS TO EAT WITH THE HELP OF PLIERS:

  • take an asparagus at the time with the pliers, bring it to your mouth and eat just the tip.

WHOLE ASPARAGUS TO EAT WITHOUT THE HELP OF PLIERS:

  • use your hands;
  • do not slurp them;
  • do not crush them with a fork;
  • be careful with the oil on your chin;
  • if you are home alone, you can do whatever you want.
