The River Café is a quintessential piece of London’s fine dining history, setting the bar for high-end Italian eateries throughout the city. Travel the path of this storied restaurant with culinary legends Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray, and recreate some of their most famous dishes at home. This white asparagus with bottarga butter will change the way you view this spring produce staple. 

We love the contrast between the delicate taste of the asparagus and the rich salty bottarga. Unlike with green asparagus, you need to be ruthless when peeling the stalks of white ones.
