A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.

Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.

Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!




    1. In a frying pan, sauté bacon, over medium heat, until crisp and lightly golden.
    2. Add butter, asparagus, scallion and garlic to the pan with the bacon, sauté until asparagus is tender (but still with bite and crispness), about 5–6 minutes.
    3. Add lemon zest, toasted pine nuts, parsley and lemon juice, sauté for a minute, until fragrant. Season to taste with salt and pepper, serve immediately.
