What’s cooking this month in Sands Grill?
Summer is almost upon us!
We’re now into the second week of the British asparagus season which in fact is a very short season lasting only six weeks. Traditionally the season starts on the 1st of May however this year it started a little early as the fantastic weather we have had throughout April has meant that the season started in the middle of April – so right now really is the very best time for some delicious asparagus recipes.
In the UK we grow asparagus a little slower so that the spears have more time to develop a stronger flavour and texture. The famous Scottish weather means that we tend to wait a little longer than the rest of the country for the asparagus to develop; we expect the deliveries to arrive this week. As you know, we are very keen to work with local producers and suppliers and asparagus is the perfect example of why it is always best to buy vegetables from a local farmer.
Sands will be hosting a series of special culinary treats to match the season. Summer specials like Asparagus would be in the top of the list featuring in an ‘Asparagus Promotion’ offering 3 courses @ £20 from 7th till 31st May.
Look forward to welcoming you soon. Meantime please do share your own Asparagus recipes, we’d love to see them.
Speak soon, Sourav
