I know that the recent (and impending) dumps of snow on our city have brought more than a few of us chowhounds down. Despite really liking cold weather comfort food I'm itching to get at some of those spring flavours and ingredients that are popping at the markets.
Yesterday I bought some really gorgeous looking artichokes from Calgary Farmer's Market and we had them in the traditional manner alongside some crispy skinned pan fried chicken thighs and a tomato goat cheese tart. It satisfied my craving for spring..for the moment.
I'd like to know (if there are any other chowhounds still reading this forum) what sort of spring flavours you are looking forward to or have already indulged in?
