Local aspargus season to end soon?

Our farm suppliers tell us that this may be the last weekend of the season for local asparagus! To our minds, WA State asparagus is so much better than any other available that we stop serving asparagus altogether once the WA season is over. Stop by Le Pichet or Café Presse this weekend to try

Local asparagus with Dijon cream, chives and crispy jambon

This simple but delicious dish is featured on the Spring 2018 at Café Presse, but only as long as the local aspargus is in season.  Washington State asparagus is so good, why eat anything else? Warming the blanched asparagus with olive oil  before serving brings out its rich, herby flavor.
