Tonight for dinner we began with an entree of Truffled Baby Asparagus with a poached egg, grated Parmesan Reggiano and shaved black truffles. If you're thinking we're rich due to the excessive amount of truffle shavings, the answer is sadly no, we're not. We just were trying out a new product - Chinese Black Truffles. They're quite inexpensive, however they lack the punch of the European offerings, hence the effusive use!
The gorgeous baby aspargus came from Antico's Fruitworld over in Northbridge - yes, I know, a bit of a drive, but the quality of their produce often warrants the trip.
