Amanda Cohen Finds Religion in Ramps


“Cook with ramps? Are you crazy? Cook with the God of All Vegetables whose coming is greeted every spring with hosannas and hymns? I wouldn’t dare to cook with the most holy of all vegetables. I have a shrine to ramps and I pray to them three times a day and you want me to lay hands on them and COOK them? Ramps are for worship, not for dinner.”
–Amanda Cohen, responding to a Gothamist reporter’s inquiry about any ramp recipes she might want to share. So that’s one chef who won’t be attending Ramp Fest.
