Hello! It’s officially springtime for me when I spot the first bunch of British asparagus and I found my very first bunch this week. The British asparagus season is short so you have to pounce in it when you can. You really can’t beat the flavour, particularly if it is grown locally or freshly picked. I don’t often bake pies and this one is something of a cheat as it’s just a puff pastry top (therefore no soggy bottom), but it’s homely and comforting all the same. The chicken and spring veggies are bound in a really light British creme fraiche. All in all, the perfect spring lunch or supper, for friends or for your family.
Do we follow each other on Instagram? If not, you can find me @renbehan. I’m currently running an ‘instachallenge’ called #bloomfood with a theme of ‘spring veggies’ so I do hope you can join me.
