My demonstration was all about asparagus; three different ways to cook it and three different flavours to complement it. Firstly boiled asparagus with lemon, orange and black pepper butter, secondly griddled asparagus with crème fraîche and chive dip and lastly raw asparagus salad. The boiled asparagus had to sadly be left out of the demo as I was using an induction hob and the pan I had brought to boil in wouldn’t work. Luckily my griddle pan was hob compatible so there were two bunches griddled and one bunch raw. It was remarkable that I managed to get it all ready at the same time, I didn’t leave anything out and it even looked slightly presentable.
I started the demo at 2.30pm and at around 3pm I stopped talking. I don’t really have any recollection of what happened in that half hour, I just remember there was a lot of asparagus. Apparently it went well but for all I know I was talking complete nonsense. I was just pleased I managed to make it through with no burns, no cuts and no tripping over.
