SPRING FLING

There is certainly a flutter in the air – a SPRING in our step, so to speak.  And rightfully so, with the warmer weather and ground thawing, a whole slew of excitement enters the markets and ultimately my kitchen in the form of vibrant green veggies pushing their way through the earth.  This week Pinterest was overtaken by artichokes, asparagus, peas, fava beans, fiddle heads, ramps and more.  This segwayed into the perfect opportunity to highlight some of the dishes and food blogs that will inspire my spring fling in the ES kitchen!

SNAP PEA + BURATTA SALAD

I can recall when I first laid eyes on this stunning plate of food in Bon Appetit Magazine.  Snappy and springy sugar snap peas and peppery arugula offer a vibrancy set against the creamy decadence of creamy buratta

CHEESY GRITS WITH FIDDLEHEAD + RAMPS

I have only begun to explore fiddleheads in the past few years – their architecture absolutely fascinates me.  Coupled with one of my all-time favorite short lived spring stars, Ramps, this dish from A Thought for Food sure does swoon the palette when served over cheesy grits!

ASPARAGUS SALAD + SESAME DRESSING

Upon first sight of Spring it is Asparagus that comes to mind more than any other vegetable.  In this swoony dish from The First Mess,  upright stalks are shaved into ribbons and infused with a sesame dressing for a raw salad.

PEA + FETA CROSTINI

I never met a crostini I didn’t swoon! Spring abundant peas are smashed and slatered over crunchy bread and further highlighted with briny feta and bright fresh mint on Nectar and Light.
