Piazza Food Bites: Tis the Season for Asparagus Lasagna

Share

During asparagus season, it’s not uncommon to find home chefs using every conceivable way to enjoy this lovely but relatively short-lived Eastern Shore delicacy. And while it might be true that the best method for savoring it is right off the barbecue grill or roasted in the oven, with an ample supply of extra virgin olive oil coating it, leave it to the folks at Piazza to remind us in Italy, asparagus is also celebrated with such classics as lasagna.

This week we talked to Emily Chandler, owner of Piazza, about her store’s ode to spring in the form of the classic asparagus lasagna. Anchored with an extra dose of lemon zest and four remarkable kinds of cheese, Emily is the first to admit that Piazza is not reinventing the wheel, but rather pays its respects to the extraordinary food traditions found in Italy and now Easton, Maryland.
