Weekend Cooking

There is nothing better than strolling through the Union Square market on a sunny day and impulsively buying fresh produce.

Some adorable fingerling potatoes.

These mushrooms are stunners: hen of the woods and yellow oysters. Lets not even get into how much they are a pound. 

Ramps, of course

(I liked this sign for obvious reasons)

And here is what we did with all of it:

Sauteed ramp shoots, fingerlings roasted with ramp bulbs, oyster and hen of the wood mushrooms sauteed in butter, and grilled skirt steak

The grill master

Our pre dinner spread was also delightful

And lunch the next morning: egg salad with sauteed ramp bulbs, carrots, celery, tarragon, and deep fried sage leaves.
