Trio of asparagus starter for Stanway Barn 2013 wedding

We came up with this starter after discussions with a wedding couple for a wedding in May this year. We tried out a few different variations of tart (below) for them to decide on one. When another wedding couple heard about this starter we did it for them too, and another one as well. Good news spreads it seems!

Tarts from tasting:
Puff pastry tart of asparagus and gruyere
Puff pastry tart with parma ham, feta, asparagus and cherry tomato
Shortcrust pastry tart with asparagus and wild mushroom fricasse with poached quail egg and hollandaise (which is the one we ended up serving)
