Smoked rainbow trout with pickled watermelon and fennel root (China Daily/Fan Zhen)

"It makes so much sense. It goes so nice with this sweet crab and the fresh salad and asparagus. I had heard about smoked yogurt but I had never made it myself. So I had to figure out how to make it. First, I hang the yogurt overnight to remove as much water as I can. Then I lay it flat in a container with ice so it stays cold and put it in the smoker for about 10 minutes. And then we just season it with a bit of honey and vinegar."

For the main course, Block created a very traditional plate featuring the white asparagus as the headliner.

It is a simple dish of white asparagus that has been sauteed slowly for 40 minutes. The stalks are cooked yet still a bit crunchy and has a delightful sweetness that paired so well with a thick hollandaise sauce.

The side dishes are a few boiled baby potatoes in butter and your choice of Italian ham, halibut or steak. The fish was fresh, but the steak was an outstanding slab of Australian Angus beef cooked to perfection.
