Spring is officially is progress. How do I know this? Because Manx asparagus is in season....yeeha! My brother kindly brought me some round as a present (yes my Italy-residing brother, but no goodies from Italy this time boohoo).

The Stokes and I had the asparagus tonight with mayo and pan-fried steak, plus those beautiful little puppies above. We have been perfecting our chip technique and have settled on the following method:
Cut potatoes into big chip size chunks
Boil in unsalted water until tender
Remove from water and leave to steam dry on a rack
Now deep fry for about 10 minutes until golden brown
Add lovely sea salt and dive in!
