Green asparagus – carrot – turnip – tarragon – entrecôte

During the process of drying, the entrecote meat generates roasted caramel-like aromas that are also present in the puree, making it a great combination. In this recipe carrot is being used since this veggie shares green aromas, just like the turnip, and floral violet-like ones with the asparagus puree. However, feel free to use the Foodpairing® tool to choose other seasonal produce.
