French Market Fresh ~ Asparagus Season
On the seasonal food calendar here in France, May and early June are un régal (delight) of fresh goodies. In Aix-en-Provence, I have been wandering the outdoor markets and come upon bunches of ciboulette (chives) with purple flowers intact, hefty bulbs of ail nouveau (new garlic), plump feves (fava beans) direct from the vendor's garden, bright green petits pois (spring peas), and the most tender fragrant fraises (strawberries) on the planet. It's tempting to become a vegetarian with all this gorgeous produce.
