Oh, Spring. Where Are You? Asparagus and Wine Pairing

April 20th, 2018

Spring just won’t spring for large swaths of the country, but we’re forging ahead with a spring meal idea, anyway. [level-members]

That’s in part because we’re already seeing great-looking asparagus in the markets. Here’s a delicious take on asparagus pizza that works well for this time of year. You might even go off script and grill the pie.

And to accompany, you could do far worse than an Italian white, particularly if the blend includes Garganega. There’s also Chablis, of course. And if you grill the asparagus or the pie itself, a light red from the Loire Valley is a great choice.
