Sunday afternoon, Fish Hawk Acres in Buckhannon held its 12th annual Fancy Ramp Market Dinner.
All courses on the menu had ramps incorporated into the dishes.
This included things like, grilled ramp vinaigrette for salads, ramp soup, ramp fritters, and ramp butter sauce.
Reservations are required for special dinners held at the restaurant.
“Every year, it’s kind of a celebration of spring in Appalachia. So we bring on the spring tonics. I.E. ramps, mushrooms, that sort of thing. It’s just kind of tradition in Appalachia to celebrate the first of spring with ramps,” said Dale Hawkins, Co-Owner of Fish Hawk Acres.
Another ramp dinner will be held on Friday, April 26th at the Upshur County Public Library.
