A multitude of incredible local wines, cold-water lobster, and fresh produce from nearby Annapolis Valley farms in Nova Scotia grace the table at Blomidon’s each night. This dish was designed by Chef Sean to honor his mom, Donna...he hopes that you will make it for your mom.

"Growing up at the Amherst Shore Country Inn, my mother taught me the value of growing gardens full of fresh ingredients and using these in all her recipes. Mom still keeps a beautiful garden at the Blomidon Inn, which provides our kitchen with many of our vegetables and herbs – including fresh asparagus!" – Chef Sean Laceby

  • 6 large pieces asparagus, chop bottoms and save tips
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme
