A simple starter

The starter I cooked last night was incredibly easy and totally delicious. It helps that it is asparagus season here in England; English asparagus is, of course, the best in the world.

All you need is some fresh asparagus, some excellent olive oil and some top-quality Parmesan. All you do is cook the asparagus for as long as you like (I suggest boiling in a large pan of salted water for five minutes) then put it on a warmed plate. Drizzle some olive oil on top (you cannot go wrong with Ravida, it is my favourite olive oil) and sprinkle some Parmesan shavings on top. Don’t skimp on either the Parmesan or the oil.

Simple and tasty fare that is, like all other food, made by the quality of the ingredients.
