Do they have asparagus in Japan?

No idea. But I can tell you how to make a really yummy japanese-italian asparagus salad (thank you Restaurant Balthazar for this recipe). And it is so easy! Even I could do that – which is the best prove, that everybody can.

    Hi Inna,
    das sieht aber lecker aus! Das wäre etwas für unsere monatliche Text&Aktion Küchenschlacht. Dabei schwingen drei Kolleginnen kulinarisch-kongenial für ein Menü die Löffel, und da passt das wunderbar. Angelika hatte neulich auf einer Pressereise auch ihre besonderen japanischen Momente – schau mal bei Gelegenheit auf unser Blog ;-)

    Liebe Grüße & bis bald
