We bought some asparagus at the farmers’ market this weekend so scoured the web for some inspiration. Usually we have it on the side but this time I wanted it to be one of the main parts of the dish. Thankfully Hugh Fearnley-Wibblewobble came to the rescue with his recipe for asparagus, poached eggs and chorizo.
Erika is scared of poaching eggs (she was first time lucky with them 4 years ago and hasn’t managed a good one since) and I can’t remember ever doing them before so tonight’s dinner was a bit of a worry but except for slightly overcooked eggs it was wonderful. We’ll definitely have it again. Alongside we served some boiled jersey royals with a bit of butter.
I love this time of year – the light evenings, the delicious fruit and vegetables. There’s much wonderful food to eat too – I’m looking forward to cherries and gooseberries now that June has begun.
