Ribboned Asparagus Salad: a Work of Art

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm addicted to these cooking films by Tiger in a Jar. They're more art than film, almost like a dance with food. And while this one wasn't my favorite (the lighting seemed a bit off, perhaps intentionally?), there are so few of these films that I savored every second. I love the simplicity, the fact that making the dish becomes an event in itself. Enjoy!

I much prefer a video of a recipe (especially recipes that don't require exact portions) than the written word. The dish definitely comes to life.
I think the lighting was such so that the asparagus was emphasized....

You might be right about that. It looked different from her other ones, but then asparagus is a less colorful subject.
