10th Annual Ramp Festival
Some folks find ramps absolutely delicious -- so delicious that civilized people have fought over the last few bunches at the farmers' markets. So desired that they've monopolized the spring menus of top New York City chefs. So coveted that they've inspired people to tattoo them onto their bodies. In sum, people who like ramps don't just like them, they're obsessed with them.
Though ramps are a relatively recent food fad, with their popularity rapidly growing over the past 25 years, they've been around and enjoyed for centuries. They were foraged by Cherokees for hundreds of years, and they've been a staple spring ingredient in Appalachian kitchens for decades."
