If ever a vegetable deserved a cult following, the asparagus is it. Packed with vitamins and minerals, high in fiber, and low in sodium, the asparagus is as healthful as it is flavorful. To celebrate this versatile veggie, Stockton, California, launched its first three-day Asparagus Festival in 1986 and has attracted thousands of ardent asparagus aficionados during the fourth weekend in April ever since. The highlight of the festival is the big-top tent, affectionately known as Asparagus Alley, where gourmet favorites featuring this edible cousin to the lily are prepared and served up to the discerning crowds. THE ASPARAGUS FESTIVAL COOKBOOK highlights the prize-winning recipes from cook-offs past and present, with dishes to please even the pickiest vegetable eaters.
