Michigan Ramps are officially here!
Ramps: spring’s finest luxury! These slender, leafy wild onions are the forest’s first delicacies of springtime. Ramps were prized by early North American settlers for their bright, garlicky flavor- especially delightful after a bland winter diet! Nowadays, foodies and chefs alike jump at the first sight of ramps to sprinkle into their springtime dishes or for pickling purposes to prolong their short season! These Michigan-grown, early spring ramps have tender leaves the perfectly subtle garlic-onion flavor. Try simply topping an omelet with the slivered leaves! Also try thinly slicing a small bunch of ramps to fold into your next batch of biscuits for a savory flair!

Wine & Cheese... on the farm!

 

Please join us and the folks from White Lotus Farms for a wine and cheese tasting on the farm! We'll choose the ideal wines to pair with some of the most delicious and unique goat cheeses, made right in Ann Arbor at White Lotus Farms! We had so much fun with these tastings last summer that we decided to do it all over again! So join us for a bit of early summer fun on the farm!

Join us on Friday May 15th from 6-8pm for what will prove to be a splendid tasting. If you are into the farm to table concept I think this is just the gig for you. The tasting will be held at White Lotus Farms: 7217 West Liberty, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48103. Tickets will sell fast, so act today!
