Officially welcoming in summer at AQFS!
With lovely summer weather upon us, inevitably thoughts turn to changing our meals to something lighter. We have lots of summer seasonal vegetables arriving in store at the moment, with Grantstown Tomatoes, Drummond House Asparagus and Jerusalem Artichokes to name but a few gracing the shelves. This week’s Thursday tasting at 3 I will be looking at simple and easy ways to incorporate these ingredients into delicious salads that are nutritious but also are quick to prepare.
We will taste a lovely Spring Salad of Asparagus, Soft-Boiled Eggs and Derg Farmhouse cheese from Garranmore in Tipperary and also look at ways to use Jerusalem Artichokes which for all intents and purposes can be treated like a potato… who knew! So please join me tomorrow when we officially welcome in the summer at Ardkeen Quality Food Store and see if I can meet the ultimate challenge of pairing asparagus with wine… watch this space.
See you from 3
