Three new food items have debut at the booth located within World Showplace, including an asparagus dish, herb-crusted spring lamb, and a new upside-down cake.

These replace the spring onion soup, duck confit, and beet dish that were at the booth, which features a rotating menu, when the festival began in March.

We’re eager to try these new springtime flavors, so let’s dig in!

Warm Asparagus served with Truffle Vinaigrette, Spring Pea Espuma, Parmesan and Fresh Truffles — $5.25

The asparagus was perfectly cooked. It wasn’t limp, chewy or crunchy. We also enjoyed the seasoning, which was salty without being overpowering.

We loved the spring pea espuma (a type of culinary foam) on the side. We would have liked the green garish to be served a bit more broken up, as it was hard to cut or chew up.

The grated parmesan was a wonderful added flavor. This was very good, and something we would get again.

Herb-Crusted Spring Lamb served with Marble Potatoes, Spring Vegetables and Red Wine Butter Sauce — $7.75

This was another winner. The lamb cut easily with the plastic knife, and was seasoned so nicely without it detracting from the really nice meaty flavor.

The vegetables and potatoes on the side were prepared very well. They weren’t mushy and were flavored very nicely as well.

Overall, this was a really flavorful, superb dish. Meat lovers will want this one especially. This is worth coming back for.

Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake served with Crème Fraîche Whipped Cream — $4.75

This dessert was very fruit-forward, coming off as tart, but still very good. The cake was very moist, but that wasn’t a bad thing.

You could taste the rhubarb, which was subtle and complimented the strawberry nicely.

While the white dollop next to the cake might look like ice cream, it’s actually fresh whipped cream. It was delicious! The whole dish was amazing, and rounded out a trio of rather impressive items.
