My first view of a white asparagus was in the movie, Le Divorce. I'd heard of it before that, but the opening scene shows one of the women at the store buying white asparagus, which is shown to look suspiciously phallic, and then the shopkeeper told her that it's good to eat these if you want to get pregnant or have a good sex life, something like that (this entire scene, taking place in Paris, was done in French with subtitles). Yeah... I can't shake that image! Hahahaha. This does sound temptingly lovely, and I do love asparagus so...

Yvo, Now I have to see that movie! What a compelling introduction... I love asparagus too, and the extra prompting you tell here is only adding to my interest!
