When spring has sprung, chefs rush to acquire locally-foraged favorites, and at the top of the list – ramps! Grown wild, these broad, flat-leafed shoots boast a mild onion flavor with a pungent garlicky note. Think of them as the scallion’s fleeting, fashionable cousin. Their season is short, so for a few weeks, they make quite a splash on local menus, including those at COOK. Billy Riddle of Spice Finch returns to COOK up a feast that’s all about the ramps: truffle toast, garbanzo beans, pickled ramps; spring vegetable salad, ramp pesto, saffron-citrus vinaigrette; potato-ramp gnocchi, rabbit; cardamom pound cake, strawberry, whipped cream. Located a block off of Rittenhouse Square, Spice Finch showcases a creative approach to Mediterranean fare with a menu inspired by herbs and spices of the nations bordering the sea. Bonus: Mitch Skwer of wine importer-distributor Vintage Imports will be pairing each course with wine selections!
