From Mesopotamia 2000 years ago, to our tables: the cultivation of asparagus has been handed down since ancient times. In Roman times, real expeditions were organised to harvest it, so much so that the ships that left in search of it were called "asparagus", or "sprout", the only edible part of the plant.

Asparagus has very high depurative, vitamin and, according to some sources, aphrodisiac properties. Given the Piedmontese climate, one thing is certain: if they start showing up on menus, spring is just around the corner.

Boiled, sautéed, baked with cheese, in risotto: this plant lends itself to many recipes. Our chef proposes it in a tasty pie, as an appetizer or main course, to say goodbye to winter and welcome the new season.
