Chef Mike Costello and Amy Dawson of Lost Creek Farm come back to the Central Collective for a special dinner featuring an early spring bounty foraged from the West Virginia woodlands. The menu emphasizes several of Mike's unique applications of ramps, the wild, pungent, Appalachian leeks which grow prevalently at Lost Creek Farm. Throughout the spring months, locales across Appalachia will host ramp suppers and festivals, building community around mountain food traditions and honoring the region's rich foraging heritage.
