How nice it is to have signs of spring in the air and on the plate!
Day lily sprouts are perfectly ripe; there is a little dandelion, some cat’s tongue and dog’s tooth, a sprinkling of live-forever and spring beauty.. Enough to add colour, crunch and lively spring flavour to our dishes. François needs his boot suit to cross the river, but at least he’s there. After all, we are a couple of weeks early for all this excitement. Crossing the river was the feat this week; he only brought back one ramp and one miniature fiddlehead.. Still, that means that ‘real spring’ is not far off, after which there will be a steady stream of local wild edibles.
