Is there no end to this obsession?

Baked asparagus with pancetta

Using up the greedy third bundle of asparagus we bought from Sand Hutton at the weekend (yes, third), supper last night was sublime and sophisticated and it had nothing to do with me.

Rather than hoover up a dustbin lid full of junk after a busy and hungry day in London (no lunch til 3pm, and that’s easily done I can tell you), I snaffled the remaining bundle of green joy in the fridge. Inspired by Nigel Slater, I cobbled together a really quite ace supper.

Blanched asparagus were combined with butter-fried pancetta and parmesan then baked in th’oven making a perfect early summer supper that, when combine with the fabtabulous Eikendal South African Chardonnay for Majestic, delivered just what I needed after a hard day at the design coalface. Easy, fresh, very tasty, seasonal and cheap! There is no more to say. Nice pic to show I didn’t make this up.
