Gut zu wissen
This is yet another vegetable that was made famous by Louis XIV! White Landes asparagus was grown in the king's garden in Versailles and served at his table as early as December. Today, it is just as sought after for its delicate texture and refined flavor. White Landes asparagus is one of the first fresh vegetables to appear in the spring and is harvested early at the start of March. The asparagus is harvested right at the moment when the underground shoot emerges from the sandflats in Landes. It can be recognized by its characteristic color—the entire length of the asparagus shoot is a pale cream hue. This crop is traditionally grown in the department of Landes, which is now the leading producer in France. The spear is thick and brittle, but never stringy once it is cooked.
If you're watching your figure, asparagus is a good choice because it is very low in calories. However, it is extra delicious when paired with a vinaigrette or Hollandaise sauce, which is much richer!
