May culinary highlights

The Marchfeld in the Danube Tower: with our strawberry and asparagus creations we serve you seasonal treats in May!

Month May

May is the fifth month in the Gregorian calendar. Because of the often beautiful weather, it is popular in the northern hemisphere as "Wonnemonat".

Like many other months, May is named after a Roman deity. In this case, the name was inspired by Maia, the Roman goddess of fertility.

The month of May brings us asparagus and the most delicious strawberries. Asparagus and strawberries not only have it in taste, but can also shine with great nutrients.

 

 

Month May
Asparagus

Asparagus

The term asparagus means nothing more than young shoot. If the asparagus was not harvested, it would develop branched stems with fiddly leaves, small yellow flowers and subsequently scarlet, slightly poisonous berries. The asparagus genus includes over 200 species, but only a few of them are edible.

For a long time people ate only green asparagus, because the pale or white asparagus was "discovered" only in the 19th century. Since the white asparagus - also called white asparagus - is very tender and mild in taste, it quickly found many fans.

Asparagus is excellent in salads, soups and pasta - or classically with ham and hollandaise sauce.

Strawberries

Strawberries

Botanically speaking, the strawberry belongs to the group of the gathering nut fruits and not to the berries. The delicious fruit can be used in many ways and contains hardly any calories, but a lot of vitamins. There are numerous different types.

If you bite into the red shiny, juicy berry, you can expect an incomparable taste experience. Its unique aroma seduces children and adults alike. The sweet fruit tastes best freshly picked during the local strawberry season.

But strawberries can do even more: they decorate cakes and pies, fill small pastries, refresh in drinks and even in hearty salads they cut a good figure. And if you want to stock up on the fruit for the rest of the year, you can simply process it directly into jam or jelly.
