Finally, the asparagus is in season in Estonia

... few weeks later for me than for many foodbloggers in the UK, Germany, US and elsewhere. But it's been worth the wait.

My first batch of green asparagus spears - bought from the Uus-Kongo stall at the Tallinn Central Market - were turned into two excellent dishes tonight, both savoured with gusto.

First, roasted asparagus with parmesan cheese (or local Valio Forte cheese this time):

(Röstitud sparglid parmesaniga)

Secondly, Sam's excellent Asparagus on Asparagus:

('Spargel sparglis' ehk aurutatud sparglivarred sparglidipiga)

I'm ashamed I threw away all those snapped-off asparagus spears last year, and wish I had known about this excellent asparagus dip last year. Thank you, Sam!!
