    Those ramps look so tasty. I am going in search of some morels this weekend, but I don’t know if I’ll find any here!

    Beautiful!! Congratulations on the Beard nomination, if not the win.

    Gorgeous post: the photos, the pairings, the writing! I just made ramps and morels too and I’m adding a link to this post so more people will eat more morels and ramps!

    That’s a beautiful plate of Spring goodness! Glad to hear you ate your way through NY after the erroneous award of best blog!

    That’s exactly the kind of dish I like to make; just using what is fresh, right, now. I’m headed up to look for Morels and Oyster Mushrooms this weekend, but the snow level is still pretty low. Not holding out much hope.

    I thought ramps were an East Coast thing?

    Yum, this looks great. A perfect meal for the spring. Thanks for sharing!

    New Yorkers wouldn’t know a good blog if it bit them in the keester! Who needs those eastern nerd boys anyway?

    Oh, I forgot, you are from the east coast, aren’t you? Nevermind then….

    Fabulous use of the eggs!!

    That looks beautiful! it’s really nice to see so many perfectly seasonal ingredients on one plate. Too bad the foraging here in London doesn’t produce morels and pheasant eggs- I guess I’ll have to stick to the shops for mine!

    Sad. So sad about the JB thing. Felt for sure it was yours. But spring eats! yay! We just got back from New Mexico where the casita owner kept chickens and so we ate many a spankin’ fresh egg. Also favas are in the 4th week here at the farmer’s markets — last night it was favas, asparagus, spring onion, and red quinoa salad. Love those favas, miss them when they’re gone.

    Red quinoa is the key, not the white kind. Red is nice. And YES PLEASE on those favas!

    Yum! What a great springtime dish! It’s a bonus that it’s a veggie one!

    Lovely! I just harvested my tiny plot of fava beans, and reading that you were do a lamb demo this weekend I had to wonder if you have ever done or considered a Silence of the Lambs menu? I know it’s not an original idea, but I feel there are creative opportunities there!

    Hey, Hank. Sorry about the JB thing- third time is the charm. Next time you’re coming to the city, let me know; I was actually there at the same time having a few blogger dinners. If you’re inspired to try growing ramps, contact these people in February and they’ll send you bulbs:
