If Ciano’s ramp-studded gnocchi got you all hot and bothered, well, that’s just the beginning. Now comes word of a festival solely devoted to the odoriferous allium!
Yes, welcome to Ramp Fest, the inaugural celebration of all things ramps, which will take place on April 30 from 1 to 5 p.m. in Hudson, New York. The $40 ticket price seems a little steep, but 10 chefs will be whipping up dishes. While most of the chefs hail from the Hudson Valley, Zak Pelaccio of Fatty ‘Cue, the Silkstone Team of the Fat Radish, Robert Berry of Cookshop, and Ricky King of Hundred Acres will be preparing what’s unquestionably the most cheffy and hyped ingredient ever. People: Ramps are just glorified scallions!
