Blanching brings out the layers of delicate tastes in fresh asparagus. Here, the asparagus is chopped and topped with slices of  a sweet, firm, juicy peach.

When they rise to the top (should take 20 -30 seconds) remove them with a wire mesh skimmer. Arrange the asparagus pieces in a small bowl. Squeeze fresh lemon on them if desired. Cut a fresh piece into small sections, skin on. Top the asparagus with one or more peach sections.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

M has thoroughly enjoyed your class and has become a much more adventurous eater as a result.  She's open to trying so many new things.  My husband and I have enjoyed watching her use the skills she's learned in your class to take charge of the kitchen at home and make food for us.  M has also enjoyed working with the seniors and feels as though she has lots of surrogate grandparents.  What a lovely class!   Thank you.
