La vida solo es una y así como la vivimos la podemos dejar de vivir, por eso sonreír es la salida perfecta para dejar de lado las preocupaciones y tristezas, la sonrisa no puede faltar en nuestro camino pese a que los recuerdos se marchiten como los girasoles, la ilusión no se debe dejar marchar mientras no exista una despedida porque aunque nos equivoquemos siempre debemos volver a sonreír. #ramp 👽

Have you heard the word Ramps on restaurant menus? Did you ever wonder what is so special about them? Ramps are unique to the Northern Territory of the United States exclusively. They are not a leek, scallion but their own branch of the onion family. They appear for a very brief season (late winter-early spring)cannot be farmed and only harvested in the wild. People keep their ramp location extremely classified and only pass the location down to trusted family members. Prices for these delicacies can reach upwards of 30-40$ a pound. We just received this photo from our Farmer Friend who has a delivery freshly plucked from the forest! Be on the look out for these amazing flavor combinations coming to our menu! - - #ramp#wildonion#forage#eatlocal#eaterchicago
