Creamed Ramps
Here's a quick and easy spring side dish that will go well with a perfectly grilled steak or fillet of fish. I start with a quick roux to make the thickening agent for the cream sauce, and preserve the fresh and spicy flavor of ramps by cooking them only briefly.

Pasta with Ramp Pesto
Ramps, if you've never had them before, are wild leeks that pop up with a very limited season during the spring. They taste a bit like scallions — spicy and pungent, but with fresh herbal notes. The leaves form a deep green pesto that's got more kick than any other pesto you've probably tasted, even arugula. So, a little goes a long way then. Use with caution.

Ramp Pesto Risotto
In the context of the question of whether the chicken or the egg (or in this case, the pesto or the risotto) came first, the ramp pesto is the medalist in this recipe. After trying a spoonful of it — raw — from a batch my friend made on his farm, Ralston Farm, in New Jersey,  I decided immediately that I would put it in my risotto recipe that I was developing for the week. Roasted asparagus is mixed in to give the risotto another taste of spring, but the real star of this dish is the pesto. Fair warning, though: Try not to eat all of it straight from the jar before you make the risotto.  Click here to see Rice Made Sexy — 5 Great Dinner Recipes.

Rib-Eye Steak with Ramp Chimichurri
Chimichurri gets a springtime twist with the addition of ramps. The raw ramps add a spicy allium flavor to the refreshing topping and serve as a counterpoint to the richness of this well marbled cut.

Seared Scallops with Grilled Ramps and Chimichurri
For this spring-themed appetizer recipe, use the best scallops you can find — preferably dry-packed diver scallops. Ramps, if you've never had them before, are the wild cousin of leeks. They have a sharper, more onion-like flavor like scallions, and soft, edible green leaves. Click here to see In Season: Ramps.

The Green Table's Ramp Cocktail  Recipe
Also known as the Garden Gibson, The Green Table's seasonal cocktail makes the most of the fleeting ramp crop. "The recipe came from our chef. We had a ton of them so he just decided to pickle them. It's really a variation on the dirty martini. Ramps are only around for a short time, so [by pickling them] we can keep the cocktail going through the summer," says Rick Hickman, the restaurant's general manager and beverage director.

Bucatini with Ramps and Pangrattato
This is my favorite vegetable. Ramps show up early and often on our menu, but no option is more popular than this dish. Pangrattato, if you've never had it before, is a topping made with old bread, spiced up with a little chile and rounded out with some anchovy for some richness. It's the perfect accompaniment to this pasta dish. Click here to see In Season: Ramps.

Pickled Ramps
Pickled ramps — come spring every year, it seems like they're on the menu of every trendy restaurant. Well, I'm here to tell you that it's not that hard to do at home; it's pretty much like pickling anything else. Ramps, if you've never had them, are wild leeks that taste a lot like scallions, with a sharp onion-y flavor and herbal notes. Click here to see In Season: Ramps.
