In Germany, Spargelzeit (asparagus season) is a spring-time phenomenon. Through April and May, asparagus is available in markets, at road side stands, and on restaurant and home menus. There are many reasons to love asparagus—it's one of the first spring vegetables, it's healthy and low in calories (not counting the sauce), and it's delicious! 

Join us at the Haus to enjoy an asparagus-centric menu, created by the Black Forest Inn, to celebrate spring and this amazing vegetable. Note: The menu is based on green asparagus, which is the asparagus readily available in the U.S.


Asparagus & Brown Rice Salad
Fresh asparagus is tossed with red onion, dried apricot, brown rice, pearl couscous, and artichokes. Served on a bed of field greens in a citrus dressing. Accompanied by bread.

Choice of entrée
Asparagus & Ham
The most traditional German Spargelzeit meal. Ham from Fischer Family Farms is sliced thick and served warm, with asparagus, boiled potatoes, and a side of hollandaise sauce.


Asparagus Perogi (vegetarian)
Handmade perogi filled with asparagus and mild cheese, gently poached and served on asparagus puree.

Orange Torte with Candied Asparagus
A torte bursting with orange flavor topped with surprisingly tasty candied asparagus. 

Beer, wine, soft drinks, and a special digestive, the Spargelmeister, will be for sale.
