Freshly Laid Eggs

Freshly Laid Eggs

Because of its distinctive flavor, Asparagus can be difficult to pair with other ingredients, and indeed Italians tend to go easy on the sauces when serving it. It does, however, work beautifully with eggs, and Michela and Carlo prefer to use several different kinds, since their flavors and textures do vary some. In this case we had chicken eggs (pictured here), and a goose egg, which is considerably larger.

Carlo and Michela also have guinea fowl, turkeys, and ducks, and use their eggs too when the birds are laying.
