asparagi di Bassano

/ah-SPAH-rah-jee dee bahsSAH-noh/

The most highly regarded variety of asparagus in Italy, this is white asparagus, juicy and fat, and with a characteristic slightly bitter flavour. It should be easy to identify when buying as it should be bound with a band bearing the seal of the consortium showing the profile of the Bassano bridge in the center. In Bassano this is traditionally served with hard boiled eggs.
