This is the most exciting part of the year in Athens, Ohio and the starting bell is truly the rise of the ramp. Soon the morels, asparagus and strawberries will follow. It’s been a cold one but the cherry blossoms are starting to bloom around here and I am waiting to steal some to pickle “Sakura no Shiozuke” style from my neighbors very, very soon.
Here’s some baking I did last week because…it’s how I make my living and I love it.
My potato bread is sort of a hellish mix on the table but well worth it when you eat it.
Then I have the baguettes with a nice crisp crust and open crumb.
Or some fabulous “Ramp Schiacciata” with aged provolone and Valoroso tomatoes and a thick and airy Pizza Romana.
Anyway, its all in my crummy video. (The last with this sorghum molasses-soaked phone.)
