Asparagus with pork cheek and fresh garlic

This is another spring recipe.  Fresh garlic you only get in spring. Asparagus you get  now more often, but the little, best wild ones, only in spring and this is its season!  Pork cheek (guanciale) is always in  my fridge. I get into an existential crises if it is missing, same with spring onions as long as they are available.

I fry the spring onions with the guanciale and add fresh garling. the Asparagus are briefly boiled and then mixed under.

...the wines

White or Rosé wine, but a good Grechetto will be the best choice.
