We adjourned to the wonderfully decorated table (lilac themed) in the living room.
500g of green asparagus
The peelings of all the aspargus
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 shallot, diced
I added the final asparagus peelings, a crushed clove of garlic, a couple of slithers of lemon peel and the juice of half a lemon.
When the asparagus and potato were soft I pureed them and passed through a sieve to remove any lumps and fibres.
