What’s Baking (week of March 25th, 2013)

All along the Mediterranean, including the South of France, Easter week is the time to hunt for spring wild asparagus. Everyone has their secret place to find the best and most tender young shoots. Even though i’m not in France this year, i thought I’d prepare an Easter breakfast quiche with asparagus, tomato, potato, onion and sheep’s feta, for this week’s market. (Fingers crossed i can put my hands on some tender asparagus this week!) Also this week we are making a large batch of pot pies–veg, chicken & veg and dairy free of the same. It will likely be our last batch of pot pies until next fall (we only have 3 markets left this winter!), unless we have a cold wet summer. (Let’s hope not!)  So if you want to stock up, please preorder to make sure we make enough, particularly the DF, which we don’t make many of anyway. This includes special orders of “top-crust only” pot pies.  Lastly, i can’t decide between the vanilla olive oil or the lemon & avocado french macarons. Anyone have a choice? Speak up!
