More Ideas for Using Ramps
Fun video on The Feedbag this week. Chef Marco Canora - where were you last week when I was ramped out? Now I have a bunch of new ideas for using ramps (and asparagus). In fact, grilled tenderloin wrapped in ramp leaves sounds really good right now. Now all I need to do is pick up a couple of bunches of ramps -- and get a grill. Or maybe just dine at Insieme (which, ironically, is steps away from my office). I was glad to see that they visited two of my favorite Union Square stands -- Cherry Lane and Mountain Sweet Berry (which should look familiar). I was also glad to see that they touched on the issue of price. Farmers market produce is not always cheaper, but you are paying for quality.
