Ooh, I missed the paranthas... Made them last night. Can I still make comments?
 
susan G. May 7, 2012
You can always comment on the recipe page -- I look forward to seeing it!

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!
 
testkitchenette May 5, 2012
Is the parantha still up for grabs? I'll take it if it is!
 
Thank for testing it!
 
wssmom May 5, 2012
If still available I will test the Georgian Khachapuri ...
 
Kukla May 5, 2012
<br />Thanks a lot wssmom for willing to test my recipe “Georgian Khachapuri”!
 
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.
 
Vivian H. May 5, 2012
Thanks for the CP. I'll test the bisque, please.
 
Vivian H. May 5, 2012
too late, I see the bisque is taken.
 
Fork A. May 5, 2012
I would love to test the ramp Makhani if it is still available! Now on to finding ramps in Denmark...
 
Panfusine May 5, 2012
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..
 
sticksnscones May 4, 2012
I'll take the Garlic Scape bread if it is still available.
 
deanna1001 May 4, 2012
I'm ready to do R&R Chutney! I think it's still available...and I have all the ingredients already! Great list of CPs - congrats all.
 
Hey, thanks deanna1001! Hope you like it.

I would love to test Kutabi, Azerbaijani Savory Pancakes Filled with Greens and Herbs. I am part Azerbaijani but do not know of many Azerbaijani recipes.
 
Kukla May 4, 2012
Thank you cookingProf for choosing this recipe! I hope you will like it and will make Kutabi many times with deferent fillings. Do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions and also feel free to substitute some of the greens or herbs with the ones that you like or are available.
 
Ms. T. May 4, 2012
I'll test the ramp and watercress pesto. Woohoo! First time tester. The late bird finally catches a worm ;) Now I hope I can find fiddleheads...
 
Meg S. May 3, 2012
I'll take on the allium bisque, please!
 
the P. May 3, 2012
Thanks for including my Pesto recipe! I would like to test the "Green Onion Evening Galette", if it's still available.
 
Vivian H. May 5, 2012
Thanks for the nod, CC...the pesto would be my choice, but it was taken (by no surprise).
 
Ms. T. May 6, 2012
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!
 
Kukla May 3, 2012

It looks like meganvt01 already claimed that one. But, do try another one!
 
I'd like to test the Onion Confit w/Honey, Sultanas & White Wine. Pretty pleez!

It looks like em-i-lis already claimed the Tatin Tart. But, there are still a number of CP's left!
 
Bevi May 3, 2012
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!
 
Bevi May 6, 2012
HI em-i-lis! Of course I will do that! My oven was not working, but now it is. I will put this together for dinner tonight. Please feel better soon.
