The British Asparagus season starts today – cause for celebration at Taste Inn Wales restaurants as this perky little veggie is one of our favourite things.
When the countryside starts to turn green, heralding the arrival of spring, asparagus spears will begin popping their heads up above the ground. For eight short weeks, from late April, this seasonal delight is abundant and it’s time for a celebration in the kitchen for those who love this luxurious vegetable.
Full-flavoured, deliciously sweet and tender, British asparagus is regularly described as the 'best in the world'. Get some from local growers if you can – farmers markets are great for finding the best, just picked, freshest asparagus. While the British climate ensures optimum conditions to achieve the perfect-tasting spear, the fact that it is grown here means that it can be quickly transported from field to our plates.

We recently joined in with the fantastic annual balloon festival in Llandovery. We had lots of balloonists staying here at The Castle and couldn't resist popping in and out to watch the elegant things gently wafting overhead. How serene and beautiful they are, silently floating with only the gentle wooshing sound as the burners keep them airborne. Amazingly calming.

Everything in life is all worthwhile if you have views like ours. As we peer outside of the windows at Peterstone Court, we gaze over the flowing river and see an ocean of bluebells - they're out pretty early this year and you can't help but smile at the vibrant colours which now light up the place.
