Spring meal

Asparagus & Swiss Chard Tart

Savory tarts are often overlooked, and it’s a shame because they are such delicious showcases for fresh produce.

Grilled Asparagus

This is a classic preparation that is always a crowd pleaser. The asparagus’s blistered skin gives it a great nuttiness while maintaining a good crisp and crunch. I have made this as a side dish for dinner parties with adults, an appetizer for families, and as a snack for the children at my daughter’s school’s Garden club, all with incredible success. Like most recipes with few ingredients, the key to this dish is getting the best possible asparagus.
