The asparagus season in Britain is very short. It lasts for only about six weeks from late-April to mid-June. You can get asparagus from other parts of the world all year round, but British asparagus is well worth waiting for - for its great flavour and freshness.

  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • 90ml (6 tablespoons) Greek-style yoghurt
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For dipping:
