NY (June 4th, 2002) - White asparagus is nearly out-of-season, and diners and home cooks who want to treat their palates to this delicacy should take the fleeting opportunity to buy the vegetable in gourmet specialty stores and restaurants. White asparagus, one of Italyís greatest delicacies, is harvested only between April and June and will soon disappear from produce aisles and menus.
StarChefs.comís article, Bassano del Grappo: White Asparagus, describes the traditional folklore, uses, and celebration of the vegetable as well as modern-day uses by innovative Italian and American chefs. The article includes make-at-home recipes from two well-known Italian chefs, as well as buying and cooking instructions.
