White Asparagus Delicacies at the Park Hyatt’s Square One

French white asparagus, sometimes referred to as the aristocrat of vegetables, has been prized since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans, who believed that asparagus possessed medicinal properties and cured everything from rheumatism to toothaches. Asparagus has been used from very early times as a culinary vegetable, thanks to its delicate flavor, which is impossible to describe but easy to remember. Today, this succulent vegetable is cherished by Europeans, with the French perhaps the biggest fans.

Chef Takeuchi of Square One has created a selection of special dishes, from steamed to grilled and from sautéed to wok-fried, that will satisfy your taste buds

Chef Takeuchi’s asparagus delicacies are available from 18 to 30 April 2009, priced at US$ 20++ each.
