22-04-2018 The asparagus season has started once again and many media outlets are lavishing attention on this queen of vegetables. Not one to be left behind, RTL4's programme Nederland Proeft (tastes of the Netherlands) will also air an episode that will focus on asparagus. This programme and online video platform revolves around the local culinary delights containing local produce.
Each week, one type of fruit or vegetable is given centre stage. The presenter, Winston Post, visits growers who explain the process of cultivating their produce. Ed Hoogendijk will then cook up healthy and delicious meals that feature the product of the week.
As Nederland Proeft is produced in association with Vaneigenbodem.nl (a website that focuses on domestic produce) and the Nationaal Actieplan Groenten en Fruit (the Dutch national action plan for vegetables and fruit), it has an important goal: to encourage people to eat more fruit and vegetables.
The programme visited our company for the episode that focuses on asparagus. John Beeren provides an in-depth explanation of how asparagus is cultivated. Finally, our chef Ed will put together an amazing asparagus dish! If you missed the episode, check: www.nederlandproeft.com or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86kWbaVxKUk.
The episodes featuring other vegetables are available on the RTL4 online video platform until 5:30 PM on Sunday 10 June.
