Spring Has Sprung!
If the gorgeous weather we have been enjoying in New York isn’t enough of a sign that Spring is finally here– for chefs and foodies alike– a trip to the local farmer’s market will make it obvious.
The vibrant greens of asparagus, spinach, fiddleheads, and of course, the ever elusive ramp are an exciting awakening. It’s not just the colors– the tastes and textures of the season are worlds away from the comforting, but heavy foods we eat during the cold days of Winter. The crunch of a fresh radish and it’s refreshing bite, the tenderness of a young stalk of asparagus, the mild sweetness of tiny snap peas. For those of us in the kitchen these things are also signals the arrival of even more amazing local produce on it’s way in the coming weeks and months.
So stay tuned! It was a busy Winter, but there are lots of great recipes, and plenty of information to come! Tune into Fox 5’s Good Day Street Talk this Saturday, April 21st, starting at 6am to see me demonstrate a delicious spring recipe with ingredients from the Greenmarket!
