It was weeks (or months) Sir I begged for that I prepare a focaccia, but from my side I was waiting for the return of the season of asparagus to start with the foccacia bread (yes, I do not see myself doing so in the winter it is like that !). After an orgy of white asparagus (my favorite !), I wanted to try to cook asparagus other than in a pie, pasta or bruschetta and it gives this focaccia with asparagus, goat cheese and pesto. And if you look closely at the pictures, you will certainly find that this focaccia is a little bit yellow… normal because it contains turmeric (yes I wanted a little fun). In short, this focaccia asparagus is, I’m sure stack coat what you want at the moment (in my dreams yes !), finally, if it is not the case for start-you still I am sure that you will not be disappointed !

For the pesto, I used pesto garlic of the bears house, but you can also use the pesto classic, it also works.
