Used widely as a herbal extract in ancient times, asparagus emanated from the Nile valley around 3 millennia BC, spread in Asia Minor before finding its way to Franco-European monastery gardens in the 15th century. It was not till mid-19th century that Americans began to use it. Royalty revelled in the vegetable with Madame de Pompadour’s legendary love for the vegetable’s sumptuous tip coming to mind. France’s King Louis XIV went even further and named asparagus “the king of vegetables.” The Roman emperor Caesar Octavian Augustus also said: “velocius quam asparagus conguantur!”, literal for , “Quicker than cooking asparagus,”, a light dismissal to the effect that, “be ready and gone already!” Roman emperors were so in love with this delicious and savory vegetable that they had special ‘asparagus squad’ whose only task was to travel and collect only the best of the vegetable in the Empire. My, had they chastened their palates with our delicious and rich Kenya asparagus, wouldn’t they have honed out new empires!
