British asparagus growers have used a crowd-funding website to enable them to put on The Great British Asparagus Feast and, having reached their initial target of £7,000 are now aiming to raise a further £1,000.
The feast, which will be cooked by chefs Josh Eggleton, Jamie Randall and Seldon Curry, will be held near Temple Meads in Bristol next month and, according to the organisers, will be ‘a five course celebration of the short but oh so sweet British asparagus season!’
Asparagus grower Chris Chinn said, “This event is a terrific celebration of one of the country’s most special and precious seasonal crops. I’ll be joined by some of my fellow asparagus growers and several of the top chefs in the country for an asparagus feast.”
Chef Josh Eggleton added, “We’ll be celebrating British asparagus [with] a five or six course taster menu to celebrate the ingredient.”
