Ri Gastro - Asparagus Week

Ri Gastro - Asparagus Week

to
Rijeka

After a short winter break, spring heralds the new Ri Gastro season. With its detoxifying qualities, there is no food that exemplifies a new beginning better than the asparagus. A vegetable fit for kings, a treasure trove of good health, a food, medicine and an aphrodisiac... These are all epithets used by asparagus aficionados to describe their fascination with this vegetable, which has been considered a symbol of the awakening of life and nature since time immemorial. Asparagus is one of the oldest self-seeding plants in the Mediterranean and its medicinal qualities have been documented for millennia. The Ri Gastro event will be centred around asparagus from 19 to 26 April, during which time the caterers in Rijeka and its surrounding area will be offering innovative, delicious and affordable delicacies. Then there is also the big charity Gastro Cooking Show. Bon appétit!
