AAA is a famous term on the Brabant Escarpment. It stands for Asparagus (in Dutch Asperges), Anchovy (in Dutch Ansjovis) and Strawberries (in Dutch aardbeien), the three best-known regional products in this area. In April the first asparagus and strawberries come off the land, which together with the anchovies form the AAA menu. The Brabant Escarpment Asparagus is distinguished from other asparagus by a somewhat more salty taste. This is obviously due to its location, a combination of salty Zeeland sea air and pure Kalmthoutse Heide groundwater. The anchovies are still traditionally caught in traps by the weather fishery. The strawberry (in Dutch aardbei) completes the AAA menu and is usually included in the dessert.
