Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Grilled Artichokes with Fava

Do you know that yearning for spring sensation…? I’m still very happy about the snow (on the mountain peaks, mainly, where I plan on going skiing next weekend again, ha). But at the moment, all I want is fresh greens and soft flowers. Blooming nature! Young sprouts! Daffodils! Peter Rabbit! And peas, wild garlic, herbs, asaparagus,...

Grilled Asparagus with Burrata & Ramps Oil

Grilled Asparagus with Burrata & Ramps Oil

this spring, inexplicably, i haven’t gotten around to enjoying gathering my own share of spring’s abundance. as a self-declared “herbal witch” and a big fan of gathering – see evidence from former gathering sessions here, here, here or here – i feel so ashamed to admit i’ve never even picked one leaf this season. and i’m afraid many of the wild...

Cheese Cake Filled Easter Eggs
