Did you know there were four ways to properly serve Asparagus. Well, if you did, move along, I do not want to bore you. However, for the rest of us, I'll share what I have learned. First, I find these pieces to be some of the prettiest silver pieces and they are fairly easy to find in most patterns. (Which means we all should be using them?) We have the Asparagus Server, the Hooded Asparagus Server, the Asparagus Serving Fork, and Asparagus Tongs.
The servers are designed to scoop the asparagus up on the flat surface and roll onto the server. The vegetables can be pierced with the fork or selected and served with the tongs.
