Oh no. I feel like an idiot for not realizing this sooner, but I was just informed by my CA farmers market vendors that ramps and fiddleheads only grow East of the Mississippi. I got some gorgeous spring garlic and green onions, and will do my best to test this recipe with substitutions. BUT if anyone on the Eastern half of the country can do the ramp pesto with fiddleheads justice, please do!

Is the parantha still up for grabs? I'll take it if it is!

I just bought a bunch of spring onions with gorgeous round bulbs at my farmer's market that I think would be perfect grilled. So, if it's not taken yet, I would love to try The Evasive Calçot and the Promiscuous Romesco.

Thanks for volunteering to test this Fork & CHopsticks..If you can't find Ramps in Denmark, Just substitute 2 cloves of garlic & greens from 4-5 scallions... & add black crushed peppercorns in lieu of the pickled green ones..

Thanks for the nod, CC...the pesto would be my choice, but it was taken (by no surprise).

Vivian- do you still have the time/desire to test the pesto? I can't find ramps or fiddleheads in CA :( I will do my best to still test the recipe with substitutions, but I'm afraid there are no substitutions for fiddleheads, so if you have access to the right ingredients, go right ahead!

Coincidentally I had bought the ingredients for the tart to make tomorrow for a pot luck. I'll just put my comments under the recipe comments section after em-i-lis's review is published.

Bevi, I have a stomach flu and feel dreadful. Is there any way you would peer review this tart in my place? I would be grateful but no pressure! Just let me know! Thank you!
