I have a few tidbits to share. It seems to be happening a lot these days.
First of all. Thank you!
And in case you are wondering, there are still tickets available for the cooking class and supper on June 24th.
On Monday April 30th–in short this coming Monday–I will also be on CTV Montréal television in the noon newscast. If you live in Canada, and more likely in the vinicity of Montréal, you can watch the interview Mutsumi Takahashi did with me last week. I loved meeting her. She made me feel very welcomed.
These vegetables. Oh so pretty. They made my day.
I found them at my favorite épicerie fine in town yesterday’s afternoon while doing errands: baby Romanesco (making me *so* happy and eager for a plate of this food); pea shoots which shapes danced together; fiddleheads (I never resist these), and ramps. My name was written all over these Spring greens.
We ate the fiddleheads last night. I steamed them for two minutes. Then I sauteed them lightly in olive oil, adding garlic and fresh coriander for extra taste. They kept a crispy texture with a grassy, spring-like flavor we loved.
As to the ramps, I still have no idea yet how I will prepare them, although my inclination will most likely go for a preparation that involves eggs or potatoes.
Which prompts my question to you: What’s your favorite way to cook with ramps (wild leeks, in French aïl des bois)?
Bon weekend à tous !
Update: The interview with CTV Television and Mutsumi Takahashi is now live here.
