La fête de l'asperge takes place this this weekend, April 23 and 24, near the banks of the Gironde Estuary just north of Bordeaux. On the menu for this year's celebration you will find cooking demonstrations and classes as well as a cooking contest, all centered on the most precious of spring time vegetables, the asparagus.
Stop by for a taste of the giant asparagus omelet or enjoy one of the many other regional specialties that will be featured, including wine, cheese, chocolate, strawberries, salsify, jam, honey and the always irresistible pineau des Charentes.
