And that means foraging for ramps in the wilds of Columbia County, shucking lots of fresh fava beans and English peas, and trimming down dozens of baby artichokes. Why all this labor-intensive preparation? For our risotto alla primavera vera, a once-a-year celebration of all things spring: arborio rice slow-cooked in vegetable broth and finished with a ramp pesto, then overloaded with shiitake mushrooms, baby peas, fava beans, asparagus, and artichokes. With a drizzle of white truffle oil, it’s yours to savor. For reservations call 518.828.6529 or reserve online!
