The Ditmas Park restaurant is teaming up with forager Leda Meredith for a wild-inspired spring menu following a forage tour in Prospect Park.
Brian Luster! We loved his photo of New York ramps, ready to be cooked. Something about the beauty of the bouquet of ramp leaves, the freshness of a local ingredient and the wine in the background (who doesn’t enjoy a glass of wine while cooking?) made us smile.
Soon, very soon, growing edible things will emerge from the soil, spreading locavore joy throughout the land. Among these early crops, ramps–those garlic-scented slender bulbs that taste like onions and make a million dishes more delicious–have garnered such a following, there’s a whole festival dedicated to celebrating their arrival.
