If you didn't realise by now Asparagasm loves asparagus. It is to Asparagasm what fennel was to Dionysus. These bright, verdant tickling sticks literally bristle with dynamic pleasure; the intricate filigree of its tip one of nature's finest works - and now it's in season, well so are we!

We'll be ritualising asparagus in every course as Chef Fredrik Bolin explores its dishy flavours in a 5-course vegan and gluten-free journey following welcome ‘Maiden’s Blush’ cocktails courtesy of Pernod Absinthe.
