I'm a former Brooklyn girl who escaped NY in search of warmer air, year-round produce and a bigger kitchen. I found all of this, and a whole new outlook on food in Berkeley, CA . Contact me at allisonvalo AT gmail.com
While the asparagus season here in Berkeley has not yet begun - and I know I should wait until I can get it locally - you can find it at Berkeley Bowl almost all year round. These pencil asparagus are from Mexico, but again, it's been a while and I've been missing the distinct grassy flavor.
