Four Festivals That Pay Homage to Asparagus

Four Festivals That Pay Homage to Asparagus | casaveneracion.com

When I was writing the duck and white asparagus recipe, I came across a trivium that white asparagus is so revered in some regions in Germany that there are annual festivals to celebrate its harvest.

Little did I know that in other regions, the same reverence is given to green asparagus. Below are three more places that hold asparagus festivals:

San Joaquin in California
Oceana County in West Michigan

That’s how well loved asparagus is. I can’t disagree. We do love asparagus at home. Below, some favorite recipes with asparagus in them:

Beef-wrapped Asparagus With Teriyaki Sauce
Bacon, asparagus and cottage cheese breakfast muffins
Asparagus, mint and lemon risotto
Herb-crusted Roast Pork Loin With Baby Asparagus
Bacon, asparagus and mushroom rolls
