You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more.


The sun is out. It's not freezing outside. Someone published an article about ramps last week. Spring seems to be on its way! At least, we hope so. Which brings us to this week's question:

What are you dying to cook -- or simply eat -- again once spring rolls around?

And you, dear readers: are you pining for fiddleheads? Dreaming of sweet peas? Tell us in the comments! Or better yet -- make a spring-themed recipe collection.

Jennifer: RAMPS!! Remember this pesto? Yum!

Peter: Fiddleheads. Barely sautéed. With lots of garlic.

Lauren: Radishes!


Gheanna: Fresh peas and strawberries!

Beatrice: Asparagus and fiddlehead ferns!!

Maddy: Artichokes! Steamed and dunked in mustard vinaigrette. Also, artichoke heart paella.

Marian: I'm ready to hoard strawberries and eat sugar snap peas like they're candy.

Christina: Wild pokeweed (aka free asparagus) and strawberries.

Amanda Li: Broccoli and strawberries for me.


Amanda: Good young greens. That's all I ask for, spring.

Merrill: Such a hard question. I think it's a tie between pea greens and ramps.

BretteGrilled favas!


Stephanie: Peas! All I want to eat are peas. And some rhubarb too.

Lindsay-Jean: Garlic scapes, peas, rhubarb, morels, and strawberries. I'm just a teeny tiny bit ready for winter to be over...
