A traditional spring or early summer dish of sauteed white asparagus (spargel), drizzled with a simple warm hollandaise sauce. Pairs beautifully with light, simple spring or summer fare such as slices of premium quality cured ham (try Black Forest ham), sliced boiled eggs and boiled new potatoes served with melted butter and sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley. Or salmon! A nice glass of white wine (such as Riesling), May Wine, or Sekt bubbly rounds out this delectable meal! Prost! This is a great make-ahead dish. Note: White asparagus (German : Spargel) is very popular throughout Europe and is the same variety as green, only it's grown covered in soil (hilling) to prevent photosynthesis. This prevents the asparagus turning green and results in a taste a little sweeter and much more tender. White asparagus must be peeled before consumption. White or green, asparagus is a delightful veggie to be enjoyed at it's peak in the spring or early summer time!
