The arrival of asparagus in our markets is a very welcome sign that Spring is finally here. The season for asparagus is short, but we have timed this event to coincide with the vegetable at its peak of taste and freshness, and let you learn how to enjoy doing the same at home.
There are many different ways in which asparagus can be prepared, and the Marriott’s Executive chef, Yavuz Taşdemir, will be delighted to share his secrets of success in preparing a full 4-course meal using different techniques to enjoy the miraculously delicate flavour of this wonderful food.
Learn how to perfect your cooking techniques as Chef Yavuz takes you through each dish step by step. With the arrival of the asparagus season, it is the perfect opportunity to hone your brunch skills; make perfect soups, and prepare classic accompaniments to fish. At the end of the workshop, participants will sample plates, with a soft drink, and enjoy a question and answer session Chef Yavuz Tasdemir – leaving just enough time for a spot of coffee.
