Don’t wait another minute to sample local ramps, those exquisitely delicious wild leeks available only a couple of weeks each spring. Just recently I went to my secret foraging spot in the Berkshires to gather bagfuls of these pungent goodies. My favorite way to prepare them is in a piquant pesto, which I incorporate into pasta dishes and risottos. This weekend, enjoy our risotto alla primavera vera (meaning real primavera, or springtime) featuring ramps, shiitake, fresh baby peas, baby artichokes and asparagus. Truly a taste of springtime!
