Did you know in traditional French cooking, if you see the word ‘princesse’ in the name of the dish, you can usually assume there will be asparagus in it? For example Princess Omelette (Omelette Princesse) is an asparagus omelette.
I think it is because the asparagus tips look like small crowns. Regardless, I think they need to make a Disney movie about this, they could just call it Princess Movie (Filme Princesse). Imagine a bunch of little kids singing about asparagus, dressing up as asparagus for Halloween (or just everyday), and possibly asking for asparagus for dinner (‘Mommy, why does asparagus season have to be sooooo short?!’) I seriously think I’m onto something.
